I walked a bit on my treadmill on Sunday (30 min), then yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed my 40 min walk - I walked every street in the subdivision. Just now I finished 50 minutes on the treadmill, going varying speeds in hopes of 'tricking' my mu... Read more
Good news - exercise-wise
Even tho' a front came thru last eve and today's high did NOT reach the predicted 60 degrees, AND the sun was mostly hidden by clouds, AND the wind was blowing, my walking buddy and I took our 30 minute walk around her neighborhood. The wind (... Read more
I am recovering - not yet well, but recovering. I'm so thankful. I haven't exercised as much this week as I 'should have' if I had been healthy, but I'm also not over-doing exercise. I did clean the kitten room at the shelter this morning, bu... Read more
I was rather tired last evening, but chalked it up to the excitement of having everyone over to dinner......was real nice that even B could be here.....too often he has to work on holidays.
I awoke (after sleeping poorly) with a VERY sore t... Read more
Saturday - a great day
It's a BEAUTIFUL day, and my energy is high. I did some 'touch-up' housework in prep for family coming over tomorrow, then baked a cake, spent over 40 min on the treadmill (I know, I coulda/shoulda walked outdoors), and then made a hearty veget... Read more
I blew my nutrition for today, but refuse to beat myself up for it. I'm determined to do better tomorrow.
I did spend time on the treadmill this morning, and will either do that again tomorrow, or will take a walk outdoors, depending on th... Read more
We went bowling this morning, thinking of bowling two games apiece. Well, the alley was having a 'senior' special of 3 games for $6 so of course we signed up for that. What super calorie-burning!
Then, I came home and spent another 40 min... Read more
IS it Spring?! Updated
Seems lots of folks have recently gotten snow, and we may get a wintery mix this morning. UGH!
Now that my complaining is over, let me say that I AM grateful for the moisture, but hope tomorrow will be warmer than today's predicted hi of 4... Read more
Thurs night thots
We've been having a busy week.
Mon and Wed mornings we took cars for state inspection. M-T-W afternoons we volunteered in one grandson's classroom. Tue a.m. we volunteered in the other grandson's class.
On the way home from the car... Read more
Thoughts on Thursday
My sciatica was acting up even before Darby (our pit bull) knocked me down half a dozen stairs the other day. I'm not sure how much is sciatica and how much discomfort is a result of the sliding down the stairs! I've been doing my (PT) exercis... Read more
Spring has sprung!
Not only are there buds on trees and bushes, but my weeping willow has delicate green leaves on it.....very pretty. I do enjoy the bare limbs of winter, but am always glad to see the new green on trees, too.
We had a couple of rainy days, ... Read more
I walked w/my buddy today for the 1st time in MONTHS! Neither of us can walk in the cold, so during the winter I used my treadmill. It was WONDERFUL to walk outside today - warm, but not hot; slight breeze, great company. I've warned her that... Read more
I'm so energized right now. I believe I have fully shed the respiratory infection that messed w/me and my exercise program; and now I'm back on track. Hoo-rah!
It's a BEAUTIFUL, sunny day that is supposed to get into the upper 60's. ... Read more
A new day
I did do slightly better yesterday w/fats, etc, but nothing to really brag about. BUT, 'baby steps' count. Did even better today w/nutrition.
We were out of town for a few days, and eating out can KILL me if I'm not hyper-vigilent. I'... Read more
Thought I was doing not too badly w/nutrition today, but after I'd tracked it all, well, let's just leave the details a secret between me and my body; but suffice it to say that I really blew it with fats. sigh.
Ok, Nancy, it's just one ... Read more
