Lost another pound

Saturday, December 20, 2014      1 comments

WooHoo! Glad to see that line on the graph starting to trend downward. This coming week is the hardest possible week for weight loss, for me, so if I can maintain I'd be more than happy. Going to see NP on 1/16 so I'd like to see progress by the... Read more

Ramping up the yoga practice

Friday, December 19, 2014      1 comments

Today I got back into yoga after 2 days off. I'm so excited about my new app called "yoga studio" and my new Bluetooth style speaker so I can hear the instructor without earbuds & wires. I did my first class, and was almost able to keep up. A fe... Read more

The evenings are very dark and long right now, but I have got some energy and hopefulness going. I was surprised to learn that I have 52 weeks of exercising more than 75 min... Read more

Back on track with habits, but weight?

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      1 comments

I am going to weigh myself in the next day or 2, so I will have an answer to this, but I don't know how my weight is responding to tracking consistently and exercising 150 minutes a week. My weight has been bouncing around, going down sometimes... Read more

Positive: DH and I are downloading the menu ideas from a SP challenge called "FitFood", and we have come across some good new ideas for quick & healthy meals. Negative: I am eating over my calorie range 5 of the last 6 days and I don't kn... Read more

Series of speed bumps on my road to wellness

Tuesday, January 14, 2014      1 comments

So. I was terrified of going to my primary care doctor's yesterday. For one thing I knew I had gained weight. Second, my other doctor tested my cholesterol panel and the numbers were not good. Glucose also not good. But the surprise speed b... Read more

New year's - a favorite time of year

Not sure I have posted this photo before or not? It's from our 30th anniversary trip this last July. It was at a cabin which was near a restored prairie, where there were... Read more

Checking in

Monday, October 21, 2013      3 comments

Hi everyone, I am checking in with my intentions on my last blog. On the 4 pronged approach, what I seem to be lacking in is mindful eating, and this has always been a problem for me. I have to eat what is there, rather than listening/pe... Read more

Ready to try again

Monday, September 02, 2013      7 comments

A friend of mine at work is losing weight using a "4 pronged approach" that she came up with herself. She has lost 15 pounds so far, and I am so inspired to give it a try. I put some new pictures of myself on my page, and man, do I look fat! ... Read more

Stuck in a rut and gaining weight

Friday, August 02, 2013      6 comments

Yes, sorry to say, I am having trouble with my motivation, and I am gaining weight. I want to find a new source of energy so I can get back on track. Maybe I am coming down with something, maybe there is too much stress at work, I really don't... Read more

Graduated from PT - now what?

Monday, July 08, 2013      2 comments

Maybe "discharged from PT" is more accurate, I am now on independent home exercise, which I am not doing (yet). I got tired of the appointments, but it was valuable and I will get back to it. I am just taking a break. I can now walk about 20 ... Read more

Physical Therapy wins the prize

Thursday, May 09, 2013      1 comments

I saw the orthopedic doctor, got injections, heel wedges for my shoes, and a series of physical therapy appointments. Physical therapy wins! It is helping! I still have pain sometimes, but I am walking 10-15 minutes several times a week, walk... Read more

Working on knee and general fitness level

Sunday, February 24, 2013      1 comments

Maybe it is a sign of spring, I am feeling less like cocooning under a blanket and more like taking a walk in the sunshine. My biggest problem with walking (which I love to do) is a knee injury that has been acting up again and limiting my dist... Read more
