There is Something About Mary

Tuesday, August 14, 2012      3 comments

Last night at cardio kickboxing/ boot camp, we had an unexpected visitor. A little 4 year old girl came running in, asked our instructor if she could "do that too" and proceeded to copy us. Her mother came running in shortly afterward to try an... Read more

Zumba Pin Ball

Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

No, there is not another kind of Zumba out there. We have a variety of people participating in Zumba and other fitness classes. On Saturday we had a man who comes on occasion. I honestly wouldn't have even noticed him except that in the cours... Read more

Being Selfish

Sunday, August 12, 2012      1 comments

I need to be more selfish. I need to think about keeping my body healthy. I need to selfishly give away the pound cake instead of giving in to pressure to take it home. I need to selfishly say no to the food that I crave but is not good for m... Read more

I have to act as if I am diabetic

Saturday, August 11, 2012      4 comments

Technically I'm "just" insulin resistant. But if I overdo the carbs my sugar goes way too high. I went to a potluck. There were carbs, carbs, sugary carbs, some veggies, carbs and more sugary carbs. I brought some chicken which was a good co... Read more

Chest Congestion

Friday, August 10, 2012      2 comments

A friend told me to exercise with a head cold but not a chest cold. I hadn't heard that before but decided that since I have a tendency to end up in the ER with inflammation in my chest, to listen to her. I've been off of my regular exercise r... Read more

Making Good Choices

Thursday, August 09, 2012      0 comments

As a mom and as a Bible teacher I'm always talking about making good choices. It isn't so easy when I'm the one having to make those good choices! Meals at home are pretty good. I buy and fix good healthy "safe" food. The problem is when... Read more

My Nemesis, the Vacuum

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      7 comments

I can do one hour of intense cardio kickboxing and boot camp and be tired and a bit sore but feel pretty good. Ditto for one hour of dancing like a mad woman in Zumba. But my nemesis the vacuum does me in every single time. I vacuumed t... Read more

Exercise and Chest Congestion?

Monday, August 06, 2012      3 comments

I have a cold. Nothing too major but it has moved into my chest. I have a history of chronic bronchitis, pneumonia and pericarditis. I am one of the main teachers at a camp in two weeks and I HAVE to be better by then - or at least I really, rea... Read more

Saunas are fun. Houses that are as hot as a sauna are not. ... Read more

Today's Thoughts

Saturday, August 04, 2012      1 comments

Focus on doing what you know works. Do what you can and don't stress about what you can't. Right now when I'm recovering from illness, rest is good, not lazy. ... Read more

My Arm Chair

Friday, August 03, 2012      1 comments

Three years ago I was arm chair ridden. I lived in my arm chair. I had my stuff around me and the kids came to me there for whatever they needed. I got up now and then but 80% of my time was in my armchair - including my nights. The armchair... Read more

The Sick To Do List

Thursday, August 02, 2012      2 comments

I'm sick today. Nothing too major. A sore throat, swollen glands, stuffy nose, fatigue of a different sort than my fibro fatigue (yes, there is a difference!) I have a to-do list because I am a mom and a wife and life still needs me unles... Read more

August Goals

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      4 comments

Most of these are old goals that still apply to my journey this month: Keep those blood sugar numbers normal. I'm fine unless I throw caution to the wind and eat too many carbs at one time. As Bob Newhart would say, "Stop it!" Contin... Read more

My very slow progress

Tuesday, July 31, 2012      5 comments

Despite doing all these things "right", I'm still not losing weight. I've lost one pound this month and the month before and the month before . . . At this rate it will take me 64 more months to get to my goal weight. That is 5 years and 4 m... Read more

July Goals - Wrap up

Monday, July 30, 2012      4 comments

Here are my July Goals: 1. CONTINUE TO TRY TO KEEP MY BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS 2 HOURS POST PRANDIAL TO 120 m/dl OR LESS. I'm probably 85% successful right now. I have to confess that I havenít been testing as much as I used to. I doní... Read more
