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

The Advantage of Youth

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

Views in the cardio room

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

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

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

Stop the world. . . I want to get off. . .

Wednesday, September 19, 2012      2 comments

Energy is limited anyway. Now that school has started there just isn't enough to go around. My kids get the lion's share. My husband gets the next little bit. Lately there just hasn't been enough for me. I walked out of Zumba again tonight.... Read more

Thursday, September 13, 2012      8 comments

I just heard from the nurse with the results from yesterday's scan. Her brain is clear - ie. there are no tumors! We will still follow up with the neurologist in November because she does have the tumor in her eye that needs to be watched. And s... Read more
