April officially ends tomorrow. I did pretty well these past few weeks. I have been looking over my exercise tracker and my calorie burn goals. I have been worried that I may not be balancing calories in with calories burned. I set my weekly... Read more
So, in my blog entry for Friday, I mentioned that I have a bad case of tennis elbow. The Doctor gave me a set of six exercises that I need to do EVERY DAY for six weeks. I finally got around to starting them on Sunday, and I almost forgot to d... Read more
Bullies...Spark Friends...Taking a Stand
There is a movie out in limited release called "Bully" that is a documentary about school bullying. I have heard a lot about it, and even though my own children are grown, I may go and see it any way. I was bullied as a child, and 30 years ago... Read more
This has been a very busy and hectic week for me. Pop had a minor crisis with his dialysis that tied me up all day Monday and had me eating out for both lunch and dinner. I left the house at 8 am and got home at 10 pm. I did stay within my ca... Read more
Whales and Broken Glasses.
I took a long walk today so I could make my weekly mileage goal. I took my camera, just in case, and headed out. We are in the last few weeks of whale season, and they are often spotted off shore, if you know what to look for. Well, here I am... Read more
Anything can be a workout.
I decided to kill two birds with one stone today. The recycling has been piling up in the back, and I wasn't sure when we would be able to borrow a vehicle and take it to the redemption place my dad likes. There is a redemption center run by... Read more
Strolling, with pics
So, yesterday, I aggravated my left knee, BIG time. I ended up spending the evening icing it. I was worried I did something really bad, since any movement was painful, not just climbing. If I had to mess it up, this was the worse time, since ... Read more
Well, I finally cleared out the pipes and I no longer feel like I should be doing an Activia commercial. Because of that, and because I no longer feel bloated up to twice my size I stepped on the scale this morning. I love this number! 175.8 l... Read more

Catching up and Getting older

My Valentine's Day/Early B-Day Gift to myself.
I have been wanting a Heart Rate Monitor for a while. I just wasn't sure about what brand and some of the ones I have seen were a little intimidating and pricey. The last time I was at The Sports Authority, I saw a HRM by New Balance that I ... Read more
The Evils of Kona Winds and Auntie Flow
Well, the past week has been rough. I write my blog entries over the course of Friday, Saturday, and, if it is long, Sunday. When I am caught up with my work, I type them out as a word document. I save and revise as I go, and then copy and pa... Read more

1. Drink 80oz of water per day- 93%
2. Walk on my days off (4 days per week)- 93%
3. Get at le... Read more
The Week In Review: Jan 16-22
Well, another week down and I am seeing progress. I still do not have a working computer at home, but there is a light at the end of that tunnel. I was clearing out my files, and I found a service contract for the computer, and it is still val... Read more
