Changing Plans
Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

I don't know what is happening to my body. It seems a lot more intense than my normal flares. All I know is that my arms and legs and feet hurt so badly that if I could get it, morphine sounds good about now. It is excruciating to walk. I ha... Read more
Naptime
Thursday, October 04, 2012      0 comments

I had a very difficult time making it to naptime today. In fact, I had dd continue working on the end of school while I napped because I couldn't keep upright anymore. This was because I slept very poorly last night. I have a difficult ... Read more
So Frustrated
Tuesday, October 02, 2012      4 comments

I stopped a riot last night. OK - not really a riot. But cardio kickboxing is on the schedule for Monday night. Our regular instructor moved out of state two weeks ago. Our instructor last week did interval training instead of kickboxing last we... Read more
October Goals
Monday, October 01, 2012      0 comments

My October goals are the exactly the same as my September goals, which are pretty much exactly the same as my August goals were. I'm exercising at my maximum. I'm eating well. Not perfect but well. I did add a green smoothie back in... Read more
My Ankles
Sunday, September 30, 2012      2 comments

I think the little bones in my feet and ankles are out of alignment. Most of the time I can walk and stand pain free but every now and then (like every 5 minutes or so) I will step a "wrong" way or even while standing my weight will shift slight... Read more
Wow, I want to be like that in 14 years
Saturday, September 29, 2012      5 comments

One of my Zumba instructors told me that she is 62. Wow! I knew she was older than I am but I thought it was only about 5 or 6 years. Instead, she's 14 years older than I am. She is so fit and so energetic! Oh, she's not as energetic as the... Read more
Getting my Mojo Back
Saturday, September 29, 2012      3 comments

Life's stresses, fatigue and pain were draining me of all joy. For some reason that is turning around right now. I'm getting my mojo back. Last night and tonight I danced up a storm and found myself smiling again.... Read more
The Advantage of Youth
Friday, September 28, 2012      1 comments

We had a sub tonight in Zumba. I love this sub. She is young and vibrant. She is just bursting with sunshine and energy and makes me smile. I love our normal instructors too. They are very good. But they are my age. They can't keep up a h... Read more
In Plain Sight but Out of Mind
Wednesday, September 26, 2012      1 comments

My blood sugar is under control - if I remember to take my cinnamon capsules. The problem is that I don't always remember. I'm pretty good at breakfast and am getting better at lunchtime. I forget more than remember at dinner. I decided to p... Read more
Interval Training
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      2 comments

If interval training is your best thing ever, then you might want to skip this blog. Tonight I went to cardio kickboxing/ boot camp. Our long-time instructor's last day was last Monday and I was curious as to who they would have to replace he... Read more
Appetizer as Entree
Sunday, September 23, 2012      2 comments

Today we had lunch at Ram Restaurant and Brewery. I ordered their Hummus and Veggies appetizer as my entree. It was great! I got raw carrots, bell peppers, zucchini and celery with a hummus dip. There was also some tortilla chips and warm pi... Read more
Views in the cardio room
Saturday, September 22, 2012      3 comments

I decided to forgo my usual Zumba this morning and do the elliptical instead. There was just one elliptical free that had both the moving arm bars and the t.v. attached. After one minute of trying to turn the t.v. on and having it automaticall... Read more
I am annoyed
Friday, September 21, 2012      4 comments

It is a new quarter at the Y with the debut of some new classes. While they have advertised some new classes very well, some classes have had little to no advertising. Last week we arrived for our Friday Zumba to find out that it was Aqu... Read more
Just do it
Thursday, September 20, 2012      4 comments

Put on those shoes and it will be easier to walk out the door. Walk into the gym and it will be easier to do the actual workout. Start the workout and it will be easier to finish through to the end of the workout.... Read more
A good chiropractor is invaluable
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      1 comments

My chiropractor is great. I've been going to him for 10 years and he knows how to take me from a place of great pain to being able to function again in society. Last week, we did this thing where we passed 3 kg medicine balls to a partner who ... Read more
