Today I did 36 minutes on elliptical followed by 24 minutes on treadmill (3.5 mph walk). It felt so great to do this contraption four days in a row. Today I actually craved that elliptical! Now, that is a huge change for me. This evening I w... Read more
Conquering that Elliptical Trainer
Sunday, January 13, 2013      11 comments

I've struggled with this contraption for ages. A few minutes now and then with longer sessions at times. But, as a regular cardio challenge, I've not succeeded with this. However, today was my third day in a row. The first day was just 20 mi... Read more

Dh and I worked out at amazing gym today that is walking distance from our condo. I asked you for suggestions to help us decide if I/we should join. Your suggestions were very helpful. Not sure if we will join, but in any case, not right now.... Read more
To Gym or Not to Gym...
Tuesday, January 01, 2013      8 comments

We visited a rather amazing gym this afternoon. We do have a small one in our condo building. It has been enough for me to date. But, I think I would like a pool and some classes. Debating whether I want to pay the price that comes to over ... Read more

I'd only used this statement in regards to weight loss. But, today it finally occurred to me to share the sentiment on my team postings as related to something else. I just finished the 50 workouts in 50 days challenge. However, it was more l... Read more

I'm in the middle of a 50 workouts in 50 days challenge. I did miss one day and did very little on a couple when sick, but being on about day 28 has brought me to a good place. Just remembering I will need to log it encourages me do something... Read more
Corn muffins and Coconut
Friday, December 07, 2012      11 comments

I was asked to bring corn muffins to a dinner party this week. I made the mistake of bringing home the leftovers. I must be very careful to limit that treat, but I am enjoying each bite. For extra fiber I have an ounce of dry coconut almost e... Read more
The middle of the muddle

Though I'm not much of a jogger due to knee, back and balance issues, I think this time of year many of us are on that never ending treadmill. I find myself putting too many things on hold while not accomplishing nearly enough on my to do list... Read more
Too much popcorn
Sunday, November 18, 2012      15 comments

I dread hopping on the scale tomorrow. Today we took our grandsons to a darling movie...'Wreck-it Ralph'. Unfortunately, I ate a bit more popcorn than I should have and even worse, I had a cup of hot cocoa after. It was a magical day, but I k... Read more

I so love this time of year. My body, however, has mixed success. I am determined to maintain or even lose a bit of weight between now and the new year. As I plan our menu for next week I get a little nervous. The family traditions are expec... Read more

Ouch! My arm is red, hot, swollen...so painful. Trying high dose oral antibiotics. Once before I had this and ended up with three infusions each day for two weeks. I don't want to go there. Can't do weights, but can walk. Pretty dizzy and w... Read more

Today I had the joy of playing with my 8 and 9 year old grandsons and almost three year old gd. Hide and seek, make believe, dance, and tag were their games for the day. I only got to stay an hour, but the joy and laughter will ripple through ... Read more
No Silliness?
Thursday, November 08, 2012      9 comments

An older gentleman who dh and I know often sports a ball cap that reads 'grumpy' across the front. It suits him perfectly. He is opposed to all silliness. As we discussed the Christmas dinner party for our little band of co-ministers, he insi... Read more
