Here's to a memorable 2016
We have so much to be grateful for every day if we open our eyes, don't we?!
Our son, Ryan and daughter-in-love, Samma have been trying to get pregnant for almost 5 years. After all of the tests, they decided to go IVF. Two were implanted ... Read more
I have not been exercising regularly the past 2 or 3 weeks. Not sure why. I just haven't put it in my schedule. In a lot of cases, I have made 10,000 steps - or close - but it hasn't been because of active exercising.
Yesterday I spent the da... Read more
I have a new goal: scheduling.
I am working on better time management. I find I am not as much in balance as I want to be. There are days I don't exercise or I don't get to something I want to get done in the house, because I get involved in s... Read more
Slow but sure
I am not a runner. I have tried, and it just isn't my cup of tea. It would probably be different if I had a running buddy. However, I have been much more religious about walking on a regular basis. And, while it is a slower way to eliminate weig... Read more
Just a glorious day!
I had surgery this Tuesday for removal of a cyst. I have some real positive issues out of this: 1) All of the pathology is negative. It is what the doctor assumed, but just verifying it is a relief. 2) I took my last pain medicine night before l... Read more
Saturday night Gary and I went to a local winery for dinner. The band was called 'Back When' - and we really enjoyed the music. We love to jitterbug (actually, we call it that, but Gary just makes up steps and I follow him, and we look like we p... Read more
A new spark!
My new Spark Tracker came in the mail today. I am so excited! I used a pedometer this past week, but it fell off several times and it also reset part of the way through the day a number of times.
I will secure my new tracker somewhere that... Read more
Lost my Spark
The result of eating less and moving more has had the added benefit of looser pants. I work by appointment, and yesterday I was out all day.
I got home and changed my clothes and realized that my tracker was gone.
So, on Monday I am goi... Read more
Raising my own bar
I have changed my goals this week for my health regimen.
I am scheduling my workouts and pushing myself further than I have in the past.
I am not eliminating every food that isn't good for me (I love a marguerita when we eat Mexican food)... Read more
Harder than I thought
On my business trip, I expected to be able to have plenty of time to exercise. But, I didn't plan on how tired I would be after being in meetings from 8 - 6 every day. We also get together with associates after 6 and aren't back at our hotel unt... Read more
Traveling and Working Out
I leave tomorrow evening for a business trip to Florida. My Heart is going with me. He says he is my driver. He has made sure that there is an exercise room in our hotel. We have been enjoying our time working out together. I plan to wake up an ... Read more
A trade off - for now!
In our snow belt area of Northeastern Ohio, outside exercise can be a challenge. We live in the country, so a walk on the road this time of year is a game of chicken with the snow plow.
And this morning it is 6 degrees. BRRR!... Read more
Snow in Ohio
Overnight we got 10 inches of 'partly cloudy' here in the snow belt of Ohio.
It is beautiful, but the winds that have come with it can cause loss of visibility on the roads.
I spent half an hour shoveling the walk way this morning.
The ... Read more
Atkins - or Balanced ?
My hubby decided to get healthier this year and I am so excited about it.
He is beginning to exercise and January 1st saw him begin the Atkins diet.
He has had HUGE results so far!
I tried Atkins once before, but I didn't lose as muc... Read more
Spark Tracker Issue Resolved
After our vacation, I began having a problem with my spark tracker. It wasn't correctly tracking steps and exercise. I have been in discussion with the tech folks at Spark People. The end result is that I needed to send it in for an exchange.
