Happy Birthday, Mom!
Today would have been my mother's 85th birthday. Sadly she passed at 61. I will be 59 this year. She didn't know at 59 she would only have two years left, or that she would spend half of that battling cancer. I have missed sharing a lot of l... Read more
I love my trainer
Even when he makes me push his car like he did today, THREE TIMES, on a uphill grade! Honestly what I think I loved more was the looks from the men in the gym when we came back in! LOL
Strong girls rock!

WooHoo! The scale is moving again!
And in the right direction for a change! I'd had to stay off the scale for a while because it was just bumming me out, I was stuck at that dreaded number. We all have a dreaded number, don't we?
So I stayed off for a couple of weeks and d... Read more
Last week was fun
Too much fun apparently because when we got back from camping, I just couldn't get it in gear. I worked out with CJ three days, but that was it. Maybe I needed the R&R.
This week is back to it. Great workout this morning, 1 for 3 on tr... Read more
Re-upped personal trainer, now 3x a week
I've been working with my trainer 3 times a week the past two weeks, which seems to keep me more motivated than twice a week. I've even been getting my cardio done on non-trainer days. I'm feeling really, really good, and so is my ankle.... Read more
Funny the things that motivate
I read a book about wealth building, which was essentially network marketing, which I have no interest in, but it did put into perspective what I'm willing to invest my time in, and getting fit is definitely at the top of the list. So I have in... Read more
I will always hate Mondays
It started out great, had a good workout, but by late in the day, my good intentions evaporated and I went over my calorie count.
KISS -- 30 mins of cardio today to burn off those late-night carbs!... Read more
Love my trainer
I work out so much harder with a trainer. As exhausting as it is, I highly recommend working out with a professional. Even if you can only swing it once a week, it's worth every penny to me!... Read more
First Day back in the gym after 3 months
Oh, boy. Talk about a wake-up call. I know all too well how fast I lost muscle in my calf from not walking on my broken leg. Well, I guess the same thing happened to my arms -- I needed help doing pushups!! I have never been good at pushups ... Read more
I'm still losing weight?
Sitting around on my duff waiting for my broken ankle to heel has been the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I was also mildly concerned that I would start putting on weight. So far that hasn't happened. In fact, I'm losing. Granted I... Read more
The past week has been exhausting
I am never sick. I did not realize how much an injury to one part effects my whole body. Not to mention my stress level was through the roof -- gastrointestinal issues and living on PB&J, which was the only thing that seemed to settle my stoma... Read more
NY resolution: Recover from a broken ankle!
I still can't believe it. I often have gratitude moments that I am in such better physical health than I was two months ago. In keeping with a healthier lifestyle, what could be better than a hike, right? Not having to be carried out by two am... Read more
I did not work out yesterday
It's done, it's past. I worked out today, and commit to working out tomorrow!
One Day At a Time!!

The end of the year challenge?!
December was a breeze. I had a goal I was committed to -- exercise every day for a free pass on Christmas. I conquered that. Christmas came and went. Now I feel like I'm in a sort of limbo between Christmas and the January goal, doughnuts!! ... Read more
Can't believe I did it!
Worked out every single day thus far this month! I get a free pass tomorrow. Fun, fun, fun.
