Giving this day a 1-2-3 Punch
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      2 comments

My goal is to win today by a knock-out. It isn't going to be easy. Today is a bear of a day with too much packed into it, some of it out in the cold and rain. But I've got my gloves on and plan to fight to the end. ... Read more
I Feel Mahvelous, Dahling
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

I am getting so much done. Don't worry, there is so much to be done that I won't be done with it all for a long, long time. But it feels so good to have some energy and not be in pain. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop: for a f... Read more
Mini Personal Challenges
Tuesday, November 13, 2012      2 comments

I guess you could call them mini goals or even mini science experiments. I've been trying some small changes to my life to see how my body reacts. The first one which I've been doing for almost 3 weeks, is a no refined sugar challenge. ... Read more
No More Talking to People About Diet
Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

Why do I set myself up like this? People will ask me how I am doing - in a wanting details sort of way, not just as a a greeting. I will open my big mouth and say something about my frustration with not losing weight. And the lectures begin. ... Read more
Class Monitor (LOL)
Saturday, November 10, 2012      3 comments

I've been formally made "class monitor" at Zumba. Why do I feel like I'm back in grade school? My formal job duties are to take attendance (just a count of how many are there), to take care of any disruptions and to get the defibrillator if an... Read more
A New Zumba Convert
Friday, November 09, 2012      3 comments

I was talking to a newish lady in Zumba tonight. We had a lot in common. Both of us hated exercise before we found Zumba. Both of us found it snoring boring. But both of us like the fun and variety of Zumba. Nothing boring there! She's bee... Read more
Hoo Boy, Am I Sore!
Friday, November 09, 2012      1 comments

We did lots of squats in Zumba tonight. Boy, are my thighs sore! Remember to stick that tush out behind you when you do them so that your knees don't go too far forward, injuring your knee.... Read more
Good Lab Report
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      2 comments

I got the test results from last week's blood test today. Many values are the same. The ones that went up slightly are my electrolytes - potassium and calcium. (They didn't test magnesium.) This is good. This means that the prescription pot... Read more
Why I didn't Go to Kickboxing Tonight
Monday, November 05, 2012      1 comments

We had a sub - the same very inexperienced sub we had before. I don't feel safe with her and am afraid of getting hurt. Since my muscles are in such bad shape, this isn't a paranoid fantasy. I felt a bit guilty leaving my friends in the hall ... Read more
Sunday Lunches
Sunday, November 04, 2012      1 comments

Being a pastor's wife can come with some challenges in the "getting food on the table" category. We often don't leave church until 1 pm by the time my husband finishes talking to everyone and locking up. We live 30 min. away. We were eating o... Read more
I wonder how many calories I am really burning?
Saturday, November 03, 2012      2 comments

I'm thinking about renting a bodybugg to see how many calories I am really burning. But I'm not sure how accurate it is. I put in my weight, age and gender into a number of calculators, along with what exercise I'm doing and for how long and I... Read more

Time for November Goals

1. Continue to stay refined sugar free. 2. Switch to spelt instead of regular wheat and see if it makes a difference. 3. Continue to stay dairy free. 4. Continue to exercise 5 hours a week. 5. Stretch it out. 6. Bu... Read more
I did it!
Thursday, November 01, 2012      2 comments

I said "no" to sugar. I don't really like candy other than dark chocolate, so that was rather easy to say "no" to. But my daughter made chocolate chip cookies today. Those are my downfall. But I did not put a single on in my mouth. This was... Read more
Beav-a-thon!
Wednesday, October 31, 2012      0 comments

We've been watching "Leave it to Beaver" on Netflix lately. I love that show. Honestly, I don't know why everyone says that family was so perfect. They argue, get into scrapes, the parents mess up and have to apologize to the kids. . . Actual... Read more
