On the road
We're taking a trip. I've used a treadmill several times, and have sometimes watched carefully what I've eaten. Sometimes I've not done well with my eating. I also have done a few exercises that don't require the use of a balance ball....

I did it! So far. I got up a little early (not all that early, folks) and did today's bootcamp workout then enjoyed myself on the treadmill for almost 50 min! I had a bowl of corn flakes b4 working out, then almonds afterwards; then when I me... Read more
I did today' bootcamp workout before lunch, and just got off the treadmill after spending 55 glorious minutes on it - I feel great! I finished reading a book I'd borrowed from my dau, and walked and walked and walked. I burned lots of calories... Read more
The good news is that I'm working on the bootcamp workouts....the less than good news is that I'm struggling with them. Worked my core one day and thought I was doing fine; until I awoke the next day and could hardly move! Well, all that strug... Read more
Bootcamp, Day 3
And I haven't quit! I also spent 50 min get re-acquainted with a treadmill today. It had been over a month, and I knew to not overdo with incline and speed. I feel great. Today's bootcamp video was do-able, but I could feel it. That's a goo... Read more
I did the first day bootcamp video yesterday - well, sorta. I had to modify it a lot becuz it was a lot harder than it looked. Well, I can always keep doing it to build up what needs to be built up. LOL
I did today's video, and was able ... Read more
First day of the new week
Although I still have remnants of the cold, I'm refusing to lie down and play dead. I'm not going overboard with exercise either. : )
It's cold today - not above 24 or so, and STRONG winds with even stronger gusts. I don't think I want t... Read more
Happy, Healthy New Year!
I didn't wait until today to work on a healthier me, but since many people do wait until NY's Day, let's challenge each other to do our best to be healthier this year. Leaving that which is behind (bad habits, multiple slip-ups), let's press fo... Read more
As late as 11:00 last night we were forecast to get rain/freezing rain turning to snow starting EARLY this morning. Turns out (thankfully!) the precip is all snow, but that means we can't get out. PADOT (PA Dept of Trans) didn't send plows ou... Read more
God has been most gracious to me - I am still sick with a cold, but it's not severe. I've been taking store brands of Cold Eze and DayQuill, along with aspirin if needed; as well as drinking, drinking, drinking. Also had chicken noodle soup ... Read more
Striving to not let this cold get me down
I caught my husband's cold - he's about all over his, I'm just getting really started on mine! I'm taking aspirin for the miseries and headache, store-brand cold eze (which does help me), and striving to drink, drink, drink liquids. Also, I sp... Read more
Sniff, sniffle, sneeze
As hard as I tried to not do it, I managed to catch my husband's cold. Nuts!
I'm taking aspirin for the miseries and headache, and continuing extra Vit C to help my body heal. Haven't decided whether or not to exercise at all today. Ma... Read more
Merry Christmas to all!
I hope your Christmas is wonderful.
I had a goal to be down to 150 lbs by Christmas - very reasonable goal. But, I allowed depression and stress to 'cause' me to eat emotionally and I didn't even get as much exercise as usual in these pa... Read more
Beautiful sunny day!
Our trip to the animal shelter with the boys was good. Tyler had a blast petting the kitties (they're about 9 mos old) while I cleaned their room. Tyler wanted to help, so I put him to work picking up the little toys, let him mop a little and ... Read more
Today's high got all the way up to the low 20's! Brrrr!!!
I'm sorry that we're to get a 'wintery mix' late, late tomorrow night and have it turn into rain on Christmas Day. I've been enjoying seeing the snow on the ground. Well, there'... Read more
