Beautiful Weekend

Sunday, August 30, 2009      1 comments

Had a wonderful weekend. Went on 2 hikes. The 2nd had a 200 feet elevation rise - which is a lot for me and I did well. I was a little out of breath (we're at 8,000 feet and I have asthma) but my legs were strong and my nordic walking poles r... Read more

Happy Productive Day

We can't leave early for the cabin this morning because our new guest room furniture is going to be delivered this afternoon. So I have a day at home in town without having to go to work. I am going to swim this am, maybe go to the library, s... Read more

First Slip Up

Thursday, August 27, 2009      7 comments

I had what I call a Hungry Day yesterday. I ate more than I should knowingly. The one difference I noted from before Spark People was that I ate extra yogurt, extra fruit, larger portions of good food, and one bowl (rather than 2 !) of ice cre... Read more

I'm Ready NOW

Wednesday, August 26, 2009      1 comments

Going to work is becoming increasingly hard. I am about 18 months from retirement. My DH retired about 18 months ago. I am so ready to join him. I am working in a position that is not very challenging and am only working 4 days a week. I ch... Read more

Feeling Better Today

Tuesday, August 25, 2009      3 comments

Didn't feel great yesterday, so I went to bed without doing my 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercises. I feel kind of funny. Something' s missing. Its really funny how much an attitude can change in 2 months. By the scale I lost a pound toda... Read more

We spent another beautiful weekend in our mountain cabin. But we had a little bit of an adventure as we were getting ready to leave. My DH had just stepped outside when ... Read more

Party Eating

Friday, August 21, 2009      3 comments

I feel pretty proud! I went to an after work cocktail party at a friend's. She is a gourmet cook and really puts on a spread - both food and alcoholic beverages. I decided I would plan my strategy, so I called her and asked what she was havin... Read more

Walking the Dog

Thursday, August 20, 2009      4 comments

I've been doing some heavy duty plateau bustin' exercises lately so I think I'll take it easy this morning. As soon as it gets light I think I'll take my golden, Bucky for a walk thru the park. Near the house we have a greenway with beautiful... Read more

Gone are the Days

Wednesday, August 19, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday was a good day. I did my Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred level 1 before I went to work. Went to lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for a while. I pulled up the restaurant menu on the internet before I went and picked my meal ahead of ... Read more

Quiet and Good Life

Tuesday, August 18, 2009      2 comments

I lost another pound yesterday. That feels good. I feel good. Life is quiet right now. My DH and I went to a tile store yesterday to look at tile to redo our 3 bathrooms that have been carpeted since we built the house 11 years ago. I am lo... Read more

Plateau Busted

Monday, August 17, 2009      3 comments

I was down 2 pounds this am! The plateau busting worked AND I found I enjoyed the extra exercising. Wow, what a concept. Exercise can be fun. I am also not as hungry as I used to be when I was eating all the time. I don't know if that's bec... Read more

I am really happy with all the support I received after posting my Plateau blog. I am on the 4th day and have learned some lessons and have some revisions. 1. Jillian Michael's videos are great, BUT I am 62 years old and have had 2 back s... Read more

Plateau Buster

I would like to lose 6 pounds before my yearly physical exam MD visit on Sep 14th. I have seen the same number on the scale for 2 weeks in a row w/o going over calories and with 30 minutes of exercise a day. So, I have a plan ... my 30 day pl... Read more

Staying Active

Thursday, August 13, 2009      3 comments

One thing that has definitely changed since I started SparkPeople almost 2 months ago is that my basic activity level has improved. On strength days I do my strength workout (which I HATE) as soon as I get up - I probably would "forget to do i... Read more
