The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

Missed an entry yesterday
but, I did all my workout, concentrating on legs. Today was my second spinning class and I must say I really do enjoy it! I did almost all of the standing today, with the exception of a few "jumps" which was a new thing, and quite fatiguing. But... Read more
I conquered the elements!!!
Well, today when I got up, I was feeling kind of funky. Light-headed or dizzy, but not quite...can't really explain it, but I thought I give myself the day off. It was snowing pretty hard here so I thought I'd just have my breakfast, sip a cup o... Read more
This is a truism!!!
I probably spelled that wrong....There is no difference between living and learning...it is impossible and misleading and harmful to think of them as being separate.

This is so very true and I have found that as I've undert... Read more

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Something new & intense!
Well, I finally got up the nerve(and wanted to avoid these below 0 temps)to try my first spinning class! I'm pretty proud of myself for completing the entire hour! I found it quite challenging and had to sit on some of the climbs, but I'm going ... Read more
Well, I usually don't care for Wednesday's but today is an exception. Besides the fact that I woke to my car covered in snow at 6:30 am, the rest of my day has been delightful. I had a very good(though very cold)workout at the gym. I did 40 minu... Read more
Something new today
Well, it's still in the single digits here in Jersey, and I was going to take my cardio inside to the gym(that's the first time since last January 2nd that I wimped out)but decided that the tredmill is just too boring for me(I do that for 45-60 ... Read more
I must say that I'm not a happy camper this morning! I stayed the same-zero loss for the week. That's the first time since I began this journey back on Jan 2, 2006! I know it's better than a gain, and I had a bad weekend with the amount of food ... Read more
missed a few days
of posting here. It's been an up and down week for me. It started really great, but the past few days have been disappointing. After dinner on both nights, I've just wanted to eat and eat. Granted I wasn't eating anything off my diet, but I was ... Read more
Well, I just got back from the gym and I'm happy to say that I had a great work-out. I did 45 minutes on the tredmill and than started my lifting with the legs(which I skipped on Wed)just as I said I would. I worked them pretty well, being consc... Read more
lazy PJ morning:
Well it's 10:39 and I'm still in my pjs. I'm getting ready to go and get in my workout stuff and go for my cardio. I had been thinking I would try a spinning class today, but I haven't had a very energetic week so I'm going to try that next Thur... Read more
Well, for the second day in a row I've not had a great workout. I skimped today and didn't work my legs or bis and tris. I will remedy that on Friday by starting with the legs and I'll work the arms very hard too. I was still feeling fatigued an... Read more
Tuesday, not my favorite day of the week
but I got up early and went out(it was stinkin cold here)to the park for my walk/run. I wasn't really feeling it today since I really worked my lower back and legs hard yesterday and felt a bit fatigued. So I was only going to do 30 minutes but ... Read more
