Making the Next Healthy Habit
Sunday, November 25, 2012      0 comments

I already drink lots of water. I have a green smoothie every morning for breakfast. I exercise 5 days a week, hard, for one hour. I stretch. Many lunches are a salad and protein. But I'm bored of my salads with protein. My ... Read more
Oooohkay, then. I Just Don't Get It
Saturday, November 24, 2012      4 comments

I lost weight over Thanksgiving. I haven't exercised for four days. I was sitting for hours and hours and hours. I didn't overeat per se but the content of my meals was not the healthy food I normally have. At home I exercise hard five days... Read more
Finally Home
Friday, November 23, 2012      2 comments

Phew! What a trip! Over the river and through the woods has a whole different meaning after our 330 mile plus journey to my brother's house for Thanksgiving. On paper, the trip takes 6 hours and 9 minutes. In reality, the trip there to... Read more
Sitting on my Booty
Wednesday, November 21, 2012      4 comments

I realize that sitting is very convenient for some activities but lately there has been far too much of it. Last night my husband wanted to take me out to a movie. We haven't gone out alone in about 6 months and it was long overdue. Plu... Read more
Forty- nine
Monday, November 19, 2012      2 comments

The square of 7. The atomic number of indium. Part of the name of gold prospectors during the gold rush. Part of the name of SF's football team. Alaska's position in the state line-up. My age today.... Read more

Keep on trucking. emoticon Let your thinking lead and your emotions follow. ... Read more
The Pediatric Neurologist
Friday, November 16, 2012      1 comments

We're done with the neurologist appointment. We left at 9:15 and got home around 1:30ish. The appointment was ok. She wanted to talk about headaches the whole time and told me "I don't know the answer to that" on every single question I had r... Read more
Going it Alone
Thursday, November 15, 2012      2 comments

Oh, I'm not really. But my husband is gone for a couple of days and I feel like I was left to the wolves (oops. . . I meant children). I'm an independent woman - I don't call him at work unless it is a true emergency. Because he's working two... Read more
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
