Shaking up the workout routine
Monday, December 10, 2012      1 comments

Since I've chiseled my "workout" back to a mere 10 minutes, "Routine" seems too important a name, but yes..... sigh, I'm getting tired of what I've been doing. I've been adding exercise "shoulds" to my daily routines without discarding old metho... Read more

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

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

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

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....

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

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

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!

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

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
