Well, I'm keeping my streak going. Spinning class 8 days in a row, with no serious knee issues. I also worked out my legs again today(Wednesday is leg day)and though it's a little tight(swollen)I'm very comfortable.

Well, this week I was finally able to make spinning class everyday, and finish the class without experiencing any pain in my knee! What a relief!!! I was really beginning to think that I was at a point where my knee was going to prevent me from ... Read more
My poor baby girl!
Well, this evening I got that ever chilling phone call that every parent dreads, and fears everytime their phone rings and their child is on the road. My youngest daughter had an auto accident, and totalled her beloved red Mustang convertible. S... Read more
Is it soup yet?
The humidity here in Jersey is out of control! We got 2 minute downpour, and have no relief from this horrible humidity. Alas, this is nothing new, but just felt the need to vent. I also had to go and replace my phone (just got it in February). ... Read more
What a weekend!
Well, I have a lot to be proud of this holiday weekend. Since I've been losing the weight, I've talked about running in our neighboring town's 4 Mile Freedom Run held on July 4th. But, I've always talked myself out of it, as it's touted as quite... Read more
How did this happen so quickly? I can't believe it's already July. The summer is flying by. I've only been to the beach once, due to the stinking high price of gas! I may go tomorrow, as the weather is supposed to be great. Today, I'm doing an e... Read more
I hate the humidity
Ran a 5K today, but really struggled as the humidity is really up. I was slow and didn't have too much energy either. I think part of the energy was due to the fact that I hadn't drank my usual qt of water this mornging...... Read more

I've been MIA from this site...
Please accept my apologies for my lack of posts lately. I've been staying the course as best I can but have had to cut back on cardio a bit(especially spinning)due to my knee. I've kept up with my strength training and have found and implemented... Read more
Well, we are having a heat wave! Temps in the high 90's and going to 100 today. I was planning on doing a spin class, the first in over 2 weeks due to an injury, but I changed my mind and did a 3 mile run/walk instead. It was really hot, so I to... Read more

There is no lesson for today. You have permission to stop thinking for a moment and just enjoy yourself. Stop looking at ... Read more
No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness -- or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let y... Read more

Steven Covey is an inspirational speaker and motivator. This story is one that always makes me re-examine things and find the right focus. I may have posted this before, but it's one I like to read over and over.

What do you take a stand for?
Courage comes in many forms. In real life, rescue workers, police, and the military have the courage to lie their lives on the line for someone else or a cause. Even for those of us who live life on a much smaller stage, courage is no less impo... Read more
