If You Are Tired of Starting Over, Stop Giving Up......
Here we go, one more time.....
Sad but true, my profile photo hasn't changed any...I still look pretty much exactly the same :( The photos were taken in 2009 and now it's 2013. What can I say...except that I have a killer plan!
I've sta... Read more
Well, this is really embarassing, but nothing on my page has really changed since I set it up in 2009. My goals are pretty much the same. My weight is the same, I look the same now (pretty much) as I did then. Very sad that in all this time I ... Read more
Baby steps . . .
OK, here we go. I can't seem to get this nutrition/fitness act together all at once, so I've decided to start smaller. I don't go to the gym because "I'm tired". I have to assume that I'm tired because I weigh an extra 30 pounds and my diet s... Read more
Shame on me . . . .
First of all, I have to say shame on me because it took me a few minutes to remember how to post a blog entry! That's how long it's been :o
Second of all, I met an amazing woman at work last night who really made me feel embarrassed at my ... Read more
What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Men . . .
Hopefully not heart disease! We had quite a surprise last week. My husband had a heart attack. And, a 5 vessel coronary artery bypass. He didn't really have much cardiac history previously. He'd had a fairly normal angiogram in 1999 and a n... Read more
My First Triathlon
OK, note to anyone who reads this. You will probably get really sick of hearing about this triathlon long before it ever happens. I'm planning on doing a triathlon next summer-believe me, it will take that long to get ready. There one in my t... Read more
Attitude is Everything
Attitude is everything! How's yours?
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday
regarding the attitude we will embrace for that
day. We cannot change our past...we cannot
change the fact that people will act in a certain... Read more
Stand My Ground
I listened to a little Tom Petty during my workout today-great song!!! I will stand my ground and be tough against the temptation to eat crappy and not exercise!
Stand My Ground (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)
Well I won't back down... Read more
While I was dragging myself from my car to my door after working out this morning, I contemplated the Creeping Charlie in my garden. Creeping Charlie is a really noxious weed we have here in MN- I'm not sure where else it grows, but I think of ... Read more
The Little Engine That Could
When I was a little girl, my grandma used to read me a story called "The Little Engine That Could". The moral of the story was that if you tell yourself that you can't do something, you probably won't be able to do it. The little engine in the... Read more
Day # 1
Are you ever amazed at how many firsts you can have? Sometimes "firsts" are "do overs" -things you have done in the past and are doing again for a variety of possible reasons-like the first day of working out (again) after some time away. Some... Read more
I have to say that over the past week or so I've really been watching my "bad" carbs and have noticed how good I've been feeling. The scale has gone down a little bit and I've noticed my pants feeling a little more comfortable. Last night at w... Read more
Hey, I forgot how great this is!
I haven't posted for awhile, but I've been working really hard and and have been watching what I eat for the past few weeks and it feels really great. I think it's like morphine (not that I'm a big morphine user . . .) but working out and being... Read more
Say it ain't so . . . .
I got a new HR monitor (Polar F7) that has a weight based calorie feature. I used it for the first time today and was happy to see that the HR correlated with that on the elliptical machine, but . . . .the calories burned was way different. I'... Read more
