Trying new foods

Friday, August 28, 2015      12 comments

So I ordered these pasta/rice substitutes online. I just wanted to try them out. Yesterday I tried the Miracle Noodle Fettuccine. I left them in the boiling water just a little long, which meant they were the tiniest bit slimy, but I added ch... Read more

Just another day

Thursday, August 27, 2015      11 comments

My days tend to have a sameness about them. Not that I am complaining mind you... I enjoy the routine. But sometimes I just want to mix things up. That day was not today though. Tomorrow I have a neuro appointment and a massage scheduled, so... Read more

Slowly, but surely

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      8 comments

I have been on the go all day today. Just got back from walking Cooper for the 4th time today (total time 3 hours), also had a short visit with mom this morning, and made a lightning fast trip to the grocery store. I have really been mixing up... Read more

Quick update

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      10 comments

Stayed active today. Tried a taebo workout. Man, did I sweat. (And laugh at myself.) I might go for a run this evening as the weather is just about perfect. Cooper got 4 walks and is a happy dog.... Read more

Research, eyes, and juggling

Monday, August 24, 2015      7 comments

I researched climbing walls in my area last night. Closest I could find was North Tonawanda. Reasonable rates, and they provide lessons, and rent equipment. Now I just have to find someone to go with me. It might have to wait until my niece ... Read more

Facing down depression and fear

Sunday, August 23, 2015      18 comments

I struggled on my run today. I maintained a decent pace, and ran for over an hour, but it was an effort to convince myself I could do it. I think half the time I am fighting with myself to get through my workouts, but the result feels so good!... Read more

Getting back to "normal"

Saturday, August 22, 2015      15 comments

a normal BMI that is. I had let my weight creep back up into overweight status, but I am within spitting distance of normal once again. It feels good to watch the number on the scale drop. I think part of my problem with maintenance has been ... Read more

Rocking it...

Had another massage this morning. I am going to go to once a week for a couple of weeks, but stay with twice a week for PT. Hopefully the combination might break the cycle of pain. Rocked on the exercise today. Started before my massage ... Read more

We lost at Trivia

Thursday, August 20, 2015      9 comments

It was our last Trivia Night as a team, and we only came in 5th place. We did well in Round 1, but crashed and burned in the next two rounds. We did win, an appetizer sampler with my guess... and we never got those bonus questions right! Ah w... Read more

A Summer day...

Wednesday, August 19, 2015      11 comments

Got a late start on the day. Got Cooper out for his walk, went for coffee, came home did the yoga challenge video of the day while I waited for the coffee to cool. Did some workouts, then headed off to PT. I was going to take the long way hom... Read more

This and that

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      9 comments

Went full out today. Walked Cooper, then went for my massage. I go to her house, so Cooper can come with me. He jumps up on the table and curls up on my butt. Then I walked him another 2.77 miles. Ran inside and grabbed my purse and car key... Read more

The migraine is gone, and all that is left is my normal low level headache. Thank goodness! I hate being incapacitated. I still took it a little easier today, though I did go for a 88 minute walk around 12:30 on one of the hottest days of the... Read more

An actual rest day...

Sunday, August 16, 2015      11 comments

I am taking it easy today after last night's migraine. I feel kind of hungover, probably from dehydration. So far, I have walked the dog twice (short walks), and done some yoga and general stretching. The dog will probably get two more walks ... Read more

I was having a good day...

Saturday, August 15, 2015      15 comments

My day started out good, and stayed pretty active and fun through the afternoon and early evening, and then my nemesis struck... migraine. The throwing up, go lie down, and cringe when the ambulance goes by, sort of headache. I live with a lo... Read more

Massage and a scouting trip...

Friday, August 14, 2015      8 comments

Went to my massage this morning, sandwiched between two thirty minute walks with the dog. Cooper has already had four walks today, spoiled pup! When I got home from that I had a message from my brother, Jeremy, asking if I wanted to go on a sc... Read more
