Or is the bleh? Or meh? I'm tired. It could be the weather, but I suspect anemia. I'm completely unmotivated and have been for several days (as you can tell from my lack of participation on this site). I'm tired of tracking my intake a... Read more
Need New(er) Walking Shoes
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      0 comments

I did some preliminary online window shopping yesterday for new(er) walking shoes. I prefer New Balance and have had good luck with them in the past. I might even stop in at my local (i.e. expensive) shoe retailer to try on some of the models ... Read more

I signed up for the 'Just Move It' health enhancement program sponsored by my employer and my health insurance company this morning. It is a simple four week exercise program running from May 2nd through May 29th. I'm required to record my 'in... Read more
Beautiful Weather Finally!
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday and today have been gorgeous. Last night, after car shopping, I barely made it home in time to mow part of my yard. The sun had set and I could dimly perceive the uncut grass from the cut grass as I finished the south side yard. And... Read more
Weekend Weather Damper
Monday, April 26, 2010      1 comments

While I got lots of exercise last Friday clearing brush from my yard, I got next to nothing Saturday and Sunday thanks to the weather. Constant rain prevented me from walking the dogs (and myself) both Saturday and Sunday. And it's still raini... Read more
Nearly 10k Steps Yesterday
Thursday, April 22, 2010      1 comments

I should have walked my dog just five minutes more. I stopped 114 steps short of 10k steps. Oh, well, I'll strive for a longer stride today. I'm looking forward to the free spring cleanup tomorrow and Saturday in my local town. Already... Read more
Happy Hump Day!

Feeling much better now. Energy level is up. Back to my routine. Looking forward to the spring cleanup this weekend in my hometown. Already have several trees cut down and ready to take to the dump so I'll get plenty of exercise this Friday!... Read more
Tired and Sick
Monday, April 19, 2010      1 comments

Returned early on Sunday from our trip to Lincoln, Nebraska, but then deteriorated as the evening wore on. Took another day off from work (Monday) to recover. Haven't been eating much or walking much. Just resting. I hope to get back into th... Read more
No Walking This Morning
Friday, April 16, 2010      1 comments

I had hoped to walk both my dogs to a friend's home this morning. She graciously watches my two Rottweilers when my husband and I go out of town. Her house is about a mile or so from my house so it's a nice walk. But I woke up to a dramatic s... Read more
Travelling this Weekend
Thursday, April 15, 2010      1 comments

This will be a challenge. At least I'll get quite a bit of walking done while at the convention. I hope there are some healthy food options at the hotel's restaurant. I may even check out the fitness room, although I'm completely unfamiliar w... Read more
Not Meeting Nutrition Intake Goals
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      3 comments

I'm not hungry, yet I'm not meeting my target nutrition intakes, at least during the weekdays. I've managed to squeeze time out of my day to include exercising (mostly walking), and I've added healthy snacks (like seedless grapes and carrots) t... Read more
Monday and back to the routine
Monday, April 12, 2010      0 comments

A short work week this week, taking Friday off to attend a convention in Lincoln, Nebraska over the weekend. That will be a challenge, not for walking, as I'll get plenty of that at the convention, but for nutrition, since I'll have limited opt... Read more
Saturdays are not my friend
Saturday, April 10, 2010      4 comments

Blew the caloric intake today. Also damaged a wheel (and tire) on my husband's Firebird. And I tried to boil water for an hour (to brew tea) and the second time, I left the water boiling while I left to get something at the grocery store. ... Read more
Overly Enthusiastic
Friday, April 09, 2010      0 comments

I pushed myself too hard last night, mowing the lawn for the first time this year. I thought nearly a week's worth of walking (over twenty miles since Saturday) would have 'warmed me up' for push mowing the lawn. I was wrong, or at least my bo... Read more
Springtime in Kansas
Thursday, April 08, 2010      4 comments

But I'm no spring chicken anymore. My kids moved south to Texas to attend college last fall and my husband and I share an empty nest with two Rottweilers. After a long, cold, very snowy (for Kansas) winter, the dogs and I are ready to get out ... Read more
