Okay, so 2013 didn't quite end up the way I thought it would, nor is 2014 starting that way, either. But, I have faith that with hard work, dedication and devotion (and perhaps a little support from my friends) I will achieve all that I desire.... Read more

Restart Day Thirteen

Friday, November 15, 2013      0 comments

Friday... Negatives: Well, yesterday I was so tired, I didn't do any exercising. But I got back on track today; and my husband is away all weekend, so I'll have plenty of time to add extra time to the treadmill. I was too tired to do any ... Read more

Restart Day Twelve

Thursday, November 14, 2013      0 comments

Negatives: I spent four hours at the emergency room with my son last night. Fortunately, we discovered that his problem wasn't as serious as we had suspected, and he was sent home without major complications. However, this meant that I didn't ... Read more

Restart Day Eleven

Wednesday, November 13, 2013      1 comments

Negatives: My body was really dragging during my treadmill time this morning, thirty minutes felt like sixty. Perhaps I was a little fatigued from helping my friend move yesterday. No matter, I got in the minimum thirty minutes, anyway. No w... Read more

Restart Day Ten

Tuesday, November 12, 2013      0 comments

Negatives: Due to the cold, rainy weather, I didn't walk the dogs yesterday. That's two days in a row; bad dog mommy! It snowed last night, but as long as it doesn't rain, I'll be able to get them out today. I have all the cold weather clothi... Read more

Restart Day Nine

Monday, November 11, 2013      1 comments

Negatives: Nothing to report yet; I think I covered everything in yesterdays' entry. Positives: I got up early this morning to attack my day. After my husband got up, instead of turning on some classical music and going back to sleep, I de... Read more

Restart Week Two

Sunday, November 10, 2013      0 comments

So, what have I learned so far... 1. I don't like working out when I travel. I don't like the idea of having to get dressed, be presentable, go to the other end of the hotel just to use the workout room. It's too much work to workout. A... Read more

Restart Day Six

Friday, November 08, 2013      0 comments

Negatives: I didn't get my ab workout in yesterday; I was focusing on working and allowed it to slip. I think part of the problem is that my treadmill and ab stuff are in different rooms. It's difficult for me, once I shower after the treadmi... Read more

Restart Day Five

Thursday, November 07, 2013      2 comments

Day Five... Negatives: I've got some knee and hip joint pain today, but I made it through my 30 minutes on the treadmill anyway. I think it's just my body acclimating to all this new activity. I'm sure the pain will subside over time. I... Read more

Restart Day Four

Day Four... Negatives: Okay, so I was reminded yesterday why I have eradicated fast food from my eating habits. I had lunch at Burger King yesterday, for the first time in about four years. I had the chicken sandwich and small everything... Read more

Restart Day Three

Tuesday, November 05, 2013      0 comments

Day Three... Negatives: I got a slow start this morning; woke up a half hour later than I wanted to... but I slept well last night, so my body must have needed it. I really wanted to ditch the workout this morning (I hate it when my routi... Read more

Restart Day Two

Monday, November 04, 2013      1 comments

Day Two... Negatives: I went over my calorie count by a little bit yesterday. I suppose that this will take a while to get back into the swing of things. I'm remaining confident, however. I didn't get in any treadmill time; but again, I... Read more

Hitting The Restart Button

Okay, so here's the thing... I am starting again. I know I've done this in the past, but someone once said that I will never fail if I keep starting. So, here I am. November is a good month for me to do this - again. It's NaNoWriMo, and ... Read more

Changing the value of a pound will increase the health quotient of Americans - Really??! When I read in a SparkPeople article this morning that the government's approach to the American obesity problem was a plan to re-assign the value of a... Read more

For Lexophiles (Lovers of Words - borrowed from my Step-Dad)

1. A bicycle can't stand alone; it is two tired. 2. A will is a dead giveaway. 3. Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana. 4. A backward poet writes inverse. 5. A chicken crossing the road: poultry in motion. ... Read more
