Where to Put the Blame

Friday, January 08, 2010      0 comments

For years I wondered why mom didn't do more to keep my weight in check. I wasn't a fat child but I continued putting on weight through the years. I couldn't figure out why she didn't try harder to tell me about good foods to eat and the power ... Read more

Fitter than Ever

Thursday, January 07, 2010      7 comments

I've discussed it before, but I'm going on a cruise in Feb. I started SP last May and thought I'd lose a lot more weight than I have. I've lost 19 pounds. While that's wonderful, it's not what I had hoped for. It's definitely not bathing-sui... Read more

Treadmill Update

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      3 comments

I did 30 min. on the treadmill doing interval training. My fastest interval has been 3.5 mph but today I upped it to 3.7. Whew! I accomplished something new. I also did 10 min on the "hills" setting. I got up to 2 mph doing the hills. So, ... Read more

I Got Too Comfortable

Monday, January 04, 2010      3 comments

I got too comfortable doing the strength exercises that came with the SProgram. I could whip them out in no time. I DID increase my weight froms 1 pound to 3 pounds (wow!) but I haven't felt a burn. Did I really want to make this harder for m... Read more

I asked for and got a new treadmill for Christmas. I really like it. Last night I tried interval walking which is 1 1/2 min. of slower (but not really slow) walking and then 30 sec. of fast walking. They wanted me to walk 4 MPH but I'm not re... Read more

New Year's

Monday, December 28, 2009      3 comments

My DH and I are deadheads in that we usually go to bed early on New Year's Eve. We go to our cabin in the mountains and we usually chill out. However, if we have the grand children with us, I will stay up and let them make lots of NOISE! One ... Read more

I am going on a cruise in Feb. I've been on several but I was never in condition to do the healthy exercising. This time I'm going to try. Before, they had like a passport card and if you ate the Spa Menu, exercised, joined sports teams, walk... Read more

Look But Don't Use

Saturday, December 26, 2009      2 comments

My DH and I had a big blowup on Christmas morning. He had bought me an expensive set of knives a while back that I use daily. He went to use a knife and saw a nick in the blade. And he went balistic and ended up storming out of the house--fir... Read more

Our big Christmas dinner is tonight so I'm cooking all day--with the help of my DDs. Thankfully, I bought lots of good munchies to put out. I got a veggie tray and a fruit tray. Guess what I'm eating? I also got shrimp and cocktail sauce. A... Read more

Nice subject, huh? I wonder how you count calories if you eat and then barf. I'm not talking about an eating disorder. I've had a gastric bypass and sometimes I eat a little too much. If I do, I barf. Also, sometimes food sticks in my throa... Read more

Making one change always ends up in more changes. This happens all the time. You lose weight, you have to buy new clothes. You start walking and you need new shoes. Etc. etc. I blogged before that I'm getting a treadmill for Christmas. My... Read more

I have five grand kids here today. They range in age from 14 to 2. They are playing video games, watching t.v., and playing Wii. All of a sudden there are 7 in the house. Two neighbor boys have joined them. It is noisy and they are having l... Read more
