A good day so far
After a full morning of chores and household tasks, I walked to the store today (1.6 miles away) to pick up a few things I needed. The weather was warm and windy, so I had to work a little extra hard on the way home to keep up my pace. While at ... Read more
Autumn progress update
CALORIES: Eh. 1800 calories isn't much to work with. Very little room for slip-ups or treats. So I'm still struggling with sticking to my recommended limits, especially when traveling. In August I hit the mark on 21 of 31 days (average 142 over... Read more

Are you after short-term or long-term change?
Be honest. Are you in this for the long haul, or are you cutting back on calories or upping your exercise minutes just to hit a magic number on the scale, after which you will revert to your old ways? Willpower only produces short-term change. I... Read more
My daughter and I went for a walk in the rain last night after dark. We were planning a brisk mile and a half, but it turned into a treacherous, poky mile walk as yesterday's all-day rain woke up every toad in the 100-acre park. They were hoppin... Read more
Recap March & April 2015

I may not be able to walk tomorrow but ...
I may not be able to walk tomorrow but my 10K today was great. Well, actually the first 8K was great and the last 2, well, let's just say my hamstrings didn't last as long as I needed them to, which led to expecting more out of my quads than the... Read more
