Energy level

Thursday, December 06, 2012      2 comments

I love it that I start getting antsy when I sit too long, sure proof that my body likes this increased activity. Yoga in the morning helps my stiff joints, after I've ... Read more

Sloggin' on....

Wednesday, December 05, 2012      3 comments

I've been writing a private blog about motivation and weight loss, and the last few days I've been tempted to just say "Blah!" I'm not doing badly, but I'm not making a re... Read more

Not home yet....

Thursday, November 08, 2012      4 comments

Had a physically grueling week in Denver, but also a lot of fun. Our International competition means lots of singing, hooking up with old friends who share the same crazy hobby, new restaurants and lots of shopping for bling and musically relate... Read more

Feeling kinda "blah" today. This is the kind of day that challenges regular habits. I just wanna stay and play all day. Really, to become oblivious to the outside world, something that's easy when you don't have a job. (Plenty of work to d... Read more

Negative thinking

Monday, October 08, 2012      7 comments

Or maybe we could call it all or nothing thinking. The idea that any bump in the road has become a judgment, a wall, a final decision, something you cannot change. Ha HA HA HA! We spit on that attitude! Usually a "positive thinker" and natu... Read more

He's Home!

Saturday, September 29, 2012      3 comments

And I've already had to turn down two eating out invitations. He's trying to keep me from having to cook, but restaurants are just a danger area for me. We will be eating out tomorrow, as is our habit, but 3 times in one weekend? Not a good choi... Read more

Loving saboteurs....

Thursday, September 27, 2012      3 comments

My husband is my favorite saboteur. If I want to get off track, he's the go-to guy. It's not even bad foods he supplies for me... usually fruit, occasionally dark chocolate. In truth, he'd give me anything I ask for, but he knows I'm good at tur... Read more

Think on these things:

I've stolen this off another's message in the team posts. Since she "stole" it too, I know she won't mind. This is a great list. It's going on my refrigerator. 1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ulti... Read more

Benefits of Walking

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      5 comments

I have arthritis. Not bad enough to take medicine for it, but bad enough to have pain throughout the day when I get up from a chair, walk downstairs, etc. Part of my walking program is doing some yoga stretches afterward, when everything is nice... Read more

Walking every day

Monday, August 13, 2012      6 comments

This is really paying off for me, in terms of feeling better. I regret leaving it behind for several years. My legs are getting stronger again, my back and shoulders and neck are free from pain, and it feels really good to be able to wrap m... Read more

The cookies had no lasting effect

Saturday, July 28, 2012      6 comments

I didn't even go over my calorie limit for the day, and went right back to smoothies and sensible eating the next day. The challenge for me is always to make sure one break... Read more

I've been walking every morning (except today) for about 10 days, and am enjoying the feeling of getting my legs strong again. Have been drinking highly nutritious "green smoothies" for about 4 - 5 days, as well. Okay, that's the goo... Read more

I'm Back!

Thursday, July 05, 2012      2 comments

From a 3-state trip, in which I had to pack for 3 different activities. Went to see my daughter's family (5 grandkids!), to a crazy quilt retreat, and spent time on both ends of the trip with my husband where he's working. Came back 3 lbs. ... Read more

Good signs:

Thursday, June 14, 2012      3 comments

Today I lifted a heavy bag of garbage. It strained neither my arms nor my back. Woo Hoo!!! Quote I saw today: One-quarter of what you eat keep you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive. Hmmmmm.... hopefully... Read more

Boot Camp .... Again!

Thursday, June 07, 2012      2 comments

Since I came very close to the boot camp goals last time, I'm starting over today. The 10 minute "short time" really helps me to know that I can do it, reminiscent of how Chris was when he started this whole SP phenomena. It is just so reachable... Read more
