Family and family time

Sunday, March 28, 2010      1 comments

I have just returned from a wonderful family weekend in St. Louis. My daughter and I drove down together and back having wonderful in-depth conversation both ways. We even resolved some old misunderstandings and felt we had deepened an already... Read more

Showers, food and hours between eating!

Saturday, March 27, 2010      5 comments

The adventure of the St. Louis trip has been wild. Friday when I got to Iowa City to pick up my daughter for lunch (at 2:00 PM), she couldn't join me, but her housemate was going to do weight training at the gym and offered to work with me. He... Read more

For the first time in my life, (since I started by gaining with the freshman 15 and two babies and 2 broken legs and emotional issues) I know I will not be overweight again. I have learned several important concepts about weight, eating, exerci... Read more

Today began with my usual Tuesday 6:30 AM Wake-Up Yoga class that i love teaching. It's fun to do sun salutations as the the sun is rising. Then I had an appointment to get new orthotic inserts for my shoes. They made me feel like I was walki... Read more

Energy and women

Monday, March 22, 2010      1 comments

We live near a large Catholic high school and school just let out a few minutes ago. Since the parking lot is too small, many of the students park on our street, so it's fun to watch all the various types of kids go by. Even in a uniform of ma... Read more

Eating and my dogs

Sunday, March 21, 2010      0 comments

Okay, you must admit that the title intrigued you. I have just discovered a very dangerous habit I am developing and need to stop before it becomes mindless - the sort of habit you don't even realize you have. First I need to introduce you to... Read more

Exercise Addiction

Saturday, March 20, 2010      1 comments

I hadn't realized how important my alternate day strength training and my 6/7 days cardio training has become an addiction. I knew that I was addicted to yoga! Monday at yoga I pulled a muscle, skipped strength training. Did some mild cardio ... Read more

Thank you

Friday, March 19, 2010      2 comments

I love reading other members blogs. They are filled with such enthusiasm and "gratitude attitudes" that I am encouraged, entertained and enthused. (If that's a word.) I have a friend who can't believe that I can relate to people I have never s... Read more

65 at 65 training and crocuses

Thursday, March 18, 2010      3 comments

Spring is really here! Today on a bike training run after watching mud, decaying vegetation, naked trees, even though it was in the mid 60's and sunny, I was stunned to see the ground under a small grove of trees carpeted with crocus. Their lo... Read more

Why I love yoga

Wednesday, March 17, 2010      6 comments

On Monday, I didn't listen to my body very well and pulled a muscle in my leg doing saddle pose in yin yoga. I was scheduled to do strength training right after yoga, but my trainer and I agreed it would not be a good idea. I used heat which ... Read more

Portion Control for Kids

Sunday, March 14, 2010      4 comments

I have an idea that I can't quite figure out how to put into effect. I am concerned about childhood obesity. I realize there are a lot of causes, but i think kids (as much as adults) need to learn about what healthy portions really look like..... Read more

Walking response

Thanks for all the responses to my blog about walking. I got lots of good information. I think it is going to be important for me to alternate walking and biking as a way to build stamina for my 65 mile ride. I like the idea of jogging, howev... Read more

Is Walking all it's cracked up to be?

Friday, March 12, 2010      5 comments

After reading so many people talk about Leslie Sanson's Walk at Home DVD's, I bought 3 that were on special at Amazon. I just finished my first 13 min. mile workout. Did my heart rate elevate? Yes. Did I feel my muscles had been worked when ... Read more

What is old?

Saturday, March 06, 2010      5 comments

Today I went to a seminar to learn about Medicare. I have to be enrolled by the end of this month. I looked around the room and thought, "Who are these people? Aren't most of them on Medicare already?" Over the past 5 years, I have gotte... Read more
