Exercise and challenges

Wednesday, April 01, 2015      3 comments

Kudos to myself for being much more consistent with my exercise. Next step: with spring coming, I want to get outside much more, not only to walk, but to do whole-body workouts with gardening, which I love. Challenges: A newly developed ast... Read more

Weight loss in 2014

Sunday, January 04, 2015      8 comments

Eight tenths of a pound. Not much, right? This last year, however, involved a move to another state after 30 years in the same house, numerous trips back and forth as we moved ourselves peacemeal fashion, and a pretty disrupted schedule most of ... Read more

Big goals, or long term goals

Thursday, October 09, 2014      6 comments

Hmmmm.... having this new house was one of them, and now I realize I'm sort of spinning my wheels. Have had a couple of negative medical diagnoses, which are worrying me more than they should. Though I continue to exercise, worry about my health... Read more

At a standstill....

Tuesday, July 08, 2014      7 comments

with my weight loss. After starting on the DASH diet, I almost immediately lost 8 lbs., and then started to occasionally "cheat" (still within calorie range), and have stalled. It does seem that breads, desserts and pastas work against weight lo... Read more

Atta Girl!

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      2 comments

I have a huge problem with procrastinating on mail or phone calls. There may be some deep seated issue here, but it's probably just.... I don't like to do it. Recently I ordered and received a rather expensive carrying case for my sewing m... Read more

My Coach challenge for today. Will finish later Accomplishment #1 - Down 1/5 of a pound today, even after eating at an Indian restaurant with no way to track exact ca... Read more

Have you noticed this?

Sunday, March 02, 2014      8 comments

On the start page, near the top left, there's a motivational statement that changes every time you go to the page. Last time I was there, it said "anything can happen." Just now, when I was testing my statement, it said "You've got this!" H... Read more

Answering Coaching question

Tuesday, February 25, 2014      1 comments

In today's coaching session, I was asked what differences SP has made in my life--what I could do now, etc. My first thought was "not much," mainly because my over-achieving self thought I SHOULD be a fitness guru by now, at goal weight and... Read more

Day 22 - Fill up without Filling out

Monday, February 17, 2014      1 comments

I've skipped day 21 for the time being.... it's about exercising an extra 200 calories, and I'm just beginning today back to exercising after three days of coughing. Yesterday was the worst, but was a turning point. I can tell today I'm on the m... Read more

You may have noticed there's a gap in my Winter Wellness Challenge. I didn't write it about it but one time while we were in Missouri. I'm picking up the gauntlet today and finishing out the month. I've liked this challenge and like the reminder... Read more

Woody Woodpecker?

We've been loving watching the birds in our new house (haven't moved in permanently yet). Yesterday this gorgeous woodpecker flew in. We have, so far, three species o... Read more

Day 19 - Tabata training

Wednesday, January 29, 2014      0 comments

I'm taking a pass on this one. My elliptical is unavailable right now, and that's the only cardio that I do that I can really go "all out" on. I'm still coughing from a bad cold 2 months ago, and physically I'm just not ready for that kind of wo... Read more

Day 17 and 18

Wednesday, January 29, 2014      1 comments

Day 17 - Steps to a better derriere ( I HATE that other word) Did three of the exercises, and "starred" the article. These are good exercises. I especially liked the kick boxing one, and was amazed how much easier my right kick was than my ... Read more

Day 16 - Get enough sleep

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      4 comments

This one will be easy. We'll be at a motel tonight, with none of our regular responsibilities, and we always get a really good rest. Working hard right now to get the trailer and suitcases packed means we're expending a lot of energy, which will... Read more

Day 15 - five 60 second bursts of energy

Tuesday, January 21, 2014      3 comments

1. Drink a tall glass of water. Too easy! Drinking for 60 seconds???? 2. Twist it out. 3. Take a deep breath. Done. As a singer (and former trombone player), I know a lot about breathing deeply, breath management, and how to take little "sip... Read more
