Stupid People

Wednesday, October 13, 2010      1 comments

Why are some people so mean when I'm trying to help them? I'm the union steward at work and right now there are a number of problems going on. The most frustrating part is when our members refuse to help themselves and expect everything wi... Read more

Top of the Morning

Today I used my flex day to go to an early morning Group Power class. Different instructor, new release - my butt was thoroughly kicked. Feels great! emoticonRead more

Always a silver lining

Friday, September 24, 2010      0 comments

Ok, I think I'm on the mend. After all it's just a cold. And I've eaten just up to the minimum calories as I've not had an appetite so this morning the scale showed a welcome drop of one pound (after not budging for a couple of weeks). When I ha... Read more

Grr - last day of summer and sick

Wednesday, September 22, 2010      1 comments

When my kids were still in school I got sick every year around this time, because they would bring germs home from school and generously share them around the house. Now that they are adults I thought I would be safe but nooooo - still got sick.... Read more

Not a black belt yet, but still...

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      2 comments

Today I got a new belt. Not because of grading up, but because my old brown belt was hanging down to my shins and kept slapping me in the face when I jumped. It was a size 8, and now I'm back to a size 5. It would have been nice to get my ... Read more

With Great Power Comes Great Pain

Monday, September 20, 2010      1 comments

Well, Group Power kicked my butt again, but not as badly as last week. I guess that's progress of a sort. I know for sure I won't be upping my weights any time soon; I'm glad I can lift my arms enough to type! Read more

Plateau or Stepping Stone?

Monday, September 13, 2010      1 comments

Once again my weight hasn't budged for the last three weeks. But - my sensei complimented me on my kata yesterday: "The best I've ever seen you do it - can't criticize a thing." That's progress too, and more satisfying than a number on an old sc... Read more

Mixed Feelings on Zumba

Sunday, September 05, 2010      2 comments

My gym offered some free trial Zumba classes so I went to one yesterday. It was fun, but I think it can get "old" really fast. It might have been better if there had been some instruction on the moves, but it was just "watch me and follow along"... Read more

The Incredible Shrinking Woman

Sunday, August 29, 2010      1 comments

So I had to go on another clothes shopping trip. I really truly hate clothes shopping. I had no choice though since my fairly new size 14 pants make me look like a penguin now. Went to the 12's, too big. Went to the 10's, fit but are a teeny bit... Read more

Power to the People!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010      1 comments

I've discovered a class that's WAY more fun than step: Group Power! I had been watching these ladies for the past few months, doing my cardio on the elliptical, but didn't really know how to get started. Last week I've finally asked my PT and af... Read more

39 Steps - or 3,900?

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      0 comments

So last night I followed my plan and went to step class. Much to my surprise it was yet another instructor. Just looking at her, early twenties, perky and brimming with energy, I thought "I have a bad feeling about this." My intuition was... Read more

Last 10 pounds - prepare for your demise!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010      3 comments

Today my little fishie swam past the half-way mark on my ticker: 147 pounds. Down from an all-time high of 185 in May 2009. 10 more pounds and I'll be at a "healthy" BMI. I'm feeling pretty good already but it will be nice to lose a little more ... Read more

My PT Rocks!

Friday, August 06, 2010      0 comments

Today was my first of 5 sessions with a personal trainer - something else you wouldn't have caught me dead even contemplating five years ago. It was pretty good - the exercises seemed easy until she had me going on, and on, and on... I'm a littl... Read more

I HATE change - well, some changes anyway.

Mmmm - crow!

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      4 comments

A few weeks ago there was a "daily blog" (Coach Nicole's I think) that said we should try a new exercise or food at least three times before writing it off. At the time I declared quite emphatically that I had tried step class once and that was ... Read more
