A 7 day cruise with our daughter, son, daughter(in law) and 2 GrandGirls! What a time! The food was amazing! Our eldest granddaughter found she loved escargot and squid. The youngest found she loved shrimp that was not breaded. I just enjoyed... Read more

Considering an add-on tracker

Monday, November 03, 2014      0 comments

I usually put my tracker in my pocket. The last two days I did it, and then changed clothes and forgot to transfer it to my change of clothes. I went through the whole day and then realized that I had done it. So, my steps aren't what they reall... Read more

Getting back on the horse after you have fallen off is NOT EASY!!! I had some upper respiratory "thing" that really got me down....It was the better part of a month before the coughing finally stopped. And I didn't do much during that time. A... Read more

Yesterday I had to have some work done on my car. They told me it would be 30 minutes and asked if I was leaving it or waiting. I said I was taking a walk and would be back before noon. So, I packed my mace ( safety) mp3 player and my phone and... Read more

My husband and I went on a bike ride around our block. We live in the country, and our block is kind of a rectangle of 7.38 miles of hills and today, lots of wind. The last leg is comprised of 2 huge hills. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do... Read more

Not My Best Week

Sunday, August 31, 2014      1 comments

...but I expect that will change. I was really working my goal steps through power walking or recumbent bike, without a whole lot of change. So, I thought this week that I would do other exercises, to "shake up" my body. It felt like a difficu... Read more

Ditch the scale?

Thursday, August 21, 2014      4 comments

That is what my husband suggests. I get on every morning, and it fluctuates, depending on what I have eaten the night before: ex: 1 ear of corn= 3-4#. But, my body is changing. I am beginning to wear clothes I couldn't wear at the beginning... Read more
