Good day today
First of all it was a really beautiful day here in Jersey(50 and sunny)! That puts me in the mood to get moving and so I got myself to the gym nice and early. I did an intense 30 minute tredmill workout(intervals of hills and I ran them all for ... Read more

Well it's the beginning of week 60 for me. I had a disappointing loss of only .4 this week. But, I know my food could have been better. Not the quality, but the quantity. In particular, I'm eating too much after dinner. So, this week's challenge... Read more

This is so very true! I'm not a naturally friendly person, ie. I don't usually start a conversation with a stranger, but while I'm out walking or running, even at the... Read more
Well, I did an hour of spinning class today with the "toughest" instructor. I was really happy that today I did all the stands, jumps and kept the tension up(as per instructor) for the entire time. It was really cool and although my butt was kil... Read more
I'm off to my third spinning class today. I'm not having the best of weeks food-wise so I'm hoping this will help erase my mistakes. Of course there are outside influences at work here cyclically speaking, but that's no excuse. I know the mistak... Read more

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

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
