Starting Over In So Many Things
Since I was here last, I've gained a few more pounds... but published four books, so there's a trade off there.
Over the summer, I was given a Garmin Vivofit Tracker for my birthday. I've been enjoying using it to track my steps and my sle... Read more
January 2, 2014
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
THIS IS HOGWASH!
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
