My son stayed home from school today. His ear hurts, he's coughing and he threw up some today as well. My husband has a milder case of whatever my son has. I leaned over to give my son a kiss and he had a coughing spell just as I got in front... Read more
8.5 MPH on the treadmill !!!
If any of you watch The Biggest Loser, you know that the trainers have the contestants run for 30 seconds at a seemingly rapid pace. Usually it's 6.0 mph in the first couple of weeks. Sometimes faster.
Tonight, I went to the gym and it ... Read more
Old pants are new again!
I'm one of those people who pick out their clothes for the next day before going to bed at night. That way, I don't actually have to wake up to get to work. ... Read more
Today was better
I went to the gym today, again partly because it's what I do. DH isn't feeling well, so didn't come with me. So, I took advantage of being on my own by lifting upper body. It's been awhile, so lifting the same weights was harder than it used ... Read more
Bored, but still going
Went to the gym today, because that's what I do on Saturday mornings. When I got there, I didn't want to do anything! I didn't feel like lifting, didn't want to do cardio, nothing!! I got on the elliptical and punched in 40 minutes before I c... Read more
Cheat day all the way!
Today was my last day of "forced" time off from my job. I have been looking forward to it all week because it is a day for me. I slept in, spent some time on the Spark People site and then headed to the gym. Afterwards, I got my grocery list ... Read more
LDL number out of whack!
As part of my ongoing attempt to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I had my blood work done. The numbers all came back as "within range" except my LDL. I was floored! It's not really high, but it is higher than is considered healthy. I didn't th... Read more

It's supposed to snow again tonight. Soooo tired of cold and winter. When I retire, I need to go somewhere warm. I'm thinking Vegas so my DH can play poker and I can lounge by the pool! Only another 50 years or so to go!!... Read more
So, today started out okay, but ended not so good. Went out to lunch and had the salad bar. Loaded up with some unhealthy choices. Then, someone mentioned an Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburger from Jack-in-the-Box and it went downhill from there. E... Read more
Today has been a fairly good day. Got up early and hit the gym before it got crowded. DH made breakfast and then I took a nap. Did some laundry, read my book, took another nap. Then DH and I went to Barnes and Noble. I got a daily calendar ... Read more

Tonight is Bunco, an excuse to get together with friends, eat and drink and be merry. For those who don't know, Bunco is a dice game. There are three tables with three die at each table. There are twelve players divided among the three tables... Read more
Mammogram for Me!
This month I turned 40. With that momentous event comes some great fun...yearly mammograms! I've had one previously to serve as a baseline. I guess I'm lucky in that I have small breasts so there was no pain. Only a little discomfort with th... Read more
Boot Camp Blog
The bonus challenge for the Boot Camp today was to write a blog about the challenge. Unfortunately, I'm a little disillusioned today. The workouts are short and not too difficult. You can tailor them to your fitness level. That being said, I... Read more
The gym was still full, even though DH and I got there later than normal. Instead of using the elliptical, I got on a treadmill. My carpool partner mentioned that he had run a half mile over the weekend, a quarter of a mile at a time. I tend ... Read more
