I've been pretty active the last couple of days and felt a little achy last night. I woke up very stiff and achy this am. So instead of feeling discouraged, I am just going to listen. I believe my body is telling me to rest today, to take a b... Read more

Last Friday when I went to the Rec Center to swim I saw a flier for a Walking Challenge 09 that was starting the next day for my city. So I signed up and got a free pedometer. That was nice, but some of you may know I just bought a fancy new p... Read more

It had to happen and I will keep going. I woke up with really bad pain in my left hip. I have back problems, fibro and bursitis - so take your pick on what is causing it. The deal is that I'm limping and wincing. Ouch! ... Read more

Not much going on. Feeling good. That's really important - to feel good. How many mornings I've woken up and not wanted to get out of bed because I'm tired or depressed or hurting...or some other excuse. I need to remember the difference if ... Read more

It really is neat to have DH home. The house seems happier and full of life. But I did notice how much more active and upbeat I was while he was away compared to how I used to be before SP. I ate very healthful meals. I cooked rather than ju... Read more

I saw my MD yesterday and by her scale I have lost 25 pounds. It was 4 pounds more lost than by my scale. She and I were both very happy. I don't think my scale is as accurate because it bounces all over the place and never really settles on ... Read more

After a restful, but productive weekend, I guess I'm ready for the week to start. I am not aching any more so that's good. My daughter called and says she is loving her new job although it is exhausting. She hasn't moved yet, she has 3 months... Read more

I did it again. I don't know what it'll take to learn. I was feeling great Friday and had lots of energy and enthusiasm so I overdid the exercise. It was fun but I have paid for it yesterday and today. My back and left leg are killing me. I... Read more

Yesterday was an active, fun day. I used the machines at our rec center, swam for 30 minutes then joined in on a Lazy River water aerobices class. I had planned on riding my bike later, but I was wiped out. Sometimes I have trouble going to e... Read more

When I got home from work last night I spent a little time on SP. I read a Healthy Lifestyle blog about vegetables. The article was about how to make vegetables tolerable for people who don't like them. I love vegetables and don't mind eating ... Read more
