Woke up to another 3 inches of snow on the ground; and it kept on snowing all day. My husband got the tractor out and went over my trail around the acreage for me today so that Yukon and I can keep up with our daily walks. It's kind of fun walk... Read more

Great weather for walking

The temperature has risen closer to 0C (32F) the last few days, so Yukon and I have been out at least once and sometimes twice a day to walk around the acreage. Today we logged nearly 2 miles! And I've managed to lose another 2 lbs!!!! Yippe... Read more

Woke up this morning to a temperature of -23C (which is about 8 below F)!!!! I put Yukon's winter coat on, bundled myself up and out we went. Stayed out for about 10 minutes before my face started to freeze. LOL. Didn't seem to bother Yukon at a... Read more

I made some lasagna for dinner, using low-fat cheese, no salt, and lean ground beef. It was so good that I ate 2 portions; but it was worth it. I still made my nutrition and fitness goals. It's not something I do every day; just a once in awhile... Read more

It's been three years since I last blogged and a lot has happened during that time. I lost two family members as well as my little buddy Tip. All are loved, mourned and remembered still. On the brighter side, I have a new four-footed friend n... Read more

All I did was bend over to put a pot away this morning and, just like the t.v. commercials, I could NOT straighten up! Never had this before in my life. I tried to gently stretch it out but no luck; figured I'd be relegated to the sofa with a he... Read more

After reading the messages re: getting past not wanting to exercise, I put on my running shoes, grabbed my MP3 player, and headed for "Ellie". Did an abbreviated version of the beginners interval training program (20 min instead of 30) and......... Read more

I picked out a heart rate monitor today and am anxious to try it out. Got some terrific news from my doctor re: my cholesterol levels. The HDL has increased and both the LDL and triglycerides have decreased!! Hip Hip Hooray!!!!!! He's impresse... Read more

Like so many others out there, I'm struggling to understand the difference in calories actually burned while using various fitness machines. For example, I can go 30 minutes on Ellie (elliptical trainer) at home, using interval training, and log... Read more

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor a foot of snow on the driveway.......

Monday, January 17, 2011      1 comments

Even though we had to plow through a foot of new snow in the driveway just to get to the highway, we STILL managed to get to town to workout at the gym! Seems we can't get enough exercise shoveling snow every day! LOL. It's been overcast and sno... Read more

When I first began this program I was obsessed with doing everything right and not messing up with my tracking; and I found myself almost dreading getting on the scale in case I hadn't lost any weight. Now that I'm retired my time is my own ... Read more
