Back again--off of crutches

Sunday, April 26, 2015      0 comments

It's been four weeks today since the fall that put me on crutches. Two weeks ago I began walking slowly without crutches. One week ago, I noticed that I can walk pretty close to my old pace. I'm careful on stairs and not great about squatting lo... Read more

On crutches--doing seated exercises

Friday, April 03, 2015      1 comments

The good news is that although the fall I had on this past Sunday hurt my right knee, I can get by with one crutch and put weight on that leg. I just walk very slowly. After resting quite a bit this week, I realized I hadn't exercised since Sund... Read more

New Challenge: On Crutches

Sunday, March 29, 2015      1 comments

This morning I completed my two SparkPeople challenges: Spring Into Shape and the 10 minutes of Exercise a Day. It's crazy, but I indicated my completion of these challenges from the emergency room on my iPhone while I was waiting and waiting f... Read more

Back on track

Friday, March 27, 2015      1 comments

One of the cool things about coming back to SparkPeople is that I have a record of my exercise for the past several years. January 2011 is when I joined, and I did great. Starting that month I logged about 1000 hours of exercise almost every mon... Read more

Walk the dogs at your local animal shelter

Sunday, March 15, 2015      2 comments

Even when I'm not doing as well with exercise, one thing keeps me walking once a week. I'm a volunteer who walks dogs at my local animal shelter. My daughter and I go every Saturday morning. A number of people I know had no idea that animal she... Read more

Spring in my step

Wednesday, March 11, 2015      1 comments

The weather is great--hope the cold winter is over. I've been consistently exercising since mid-January and now am into 10-day streak of exercising at least 10 minutes a day. I've joined a couple of SparkPeople challenges and am eating real... Read more

Taking the green fruit and veggie challenge

Sunday, March 08, 2015      4 comments

I liked the blog that invited us to take the St. Patrick's Day 5 green fruits and veggies a day challenge. Off to the grocery store to buy: Broccoli, Spinach, Avocado, asparagus, peas, kale, zucchini, green apples, lettuce, brussel sprouts, p... Read more

Tigger is bouncing

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      2 comments

Glad to report I've been exercising regularly for the past six weeks. Bounce! In the fall, I attended a weekly nutrition session at work--that weekly reminder helped keep me from getting back into bad eating habits and from gaining back wei... Read more

Maintaining and back to lose more

Saturday, February 07, 2015      0 comments

I lost 12 pounds last summer by early September. By the end of the fall, I lost three more pounds, but gained those three pounds back. Still, I can say that I haven't gained back the original 12 pounds lost in the summer. I was in a bit of a "ma... Read more

Eat less and move more

Sunday, September 07, 2014      1 comments

Happy to be down 11 pounds since I began weight loss on July 7. I suppose today is my two-month anniversary for changing my eating habits. As I mentioned in an earlier post that I'm getting excited about clothes again. And I find that as I... Read more

Slow and steady wins the race

Monday, September 01, 2014      1 comments

Another pound came off this week. That means I've met my first ten pound of weight loss. I still need to do better with incorporating exercise into my routine; however, I'm doing better with being active in general--taking stairs instead... Read more

Doing better with exercise

Sunday, August 17, 2014      7 comments

I got back into SparkPeople last Monday. I've been working to take some weight off (notice that I didn't say "dieting") for about a month and a half. I didn't lose any additional weight this week, but I did improve my exercising. It's not parti... Read more

Time to shape up

Monday, August 11, 2014      2 comments

I made a not so successful try at getting back in shape in January of this year. Once my classes began again I stopped eating well and exercising. I gained back the four pounds I lost that month and even gained two more. Five weeks ago, I convi... Read more

Half Empty or Half Full

Monday, January 27, 2014      0 comments

I'm doing the 28-day Bootcamp Challenge that I've successfully completed in the past. First two weeks went great; last week was marginal. I continued to track food and I did exercise but did fall short of the Challenge goals for the week. I di... Read more

Halfway to my challenge trophy

Sunday, January 19, 2014      0 comments

When I tried SparkPeople the first time, the exercise challenges were one of the biggest things that helped me. Usually, it's hard for me not to finish something I begin publicly. The goals and videos make completion so concrete; therefore, it... Read more
