What would you call it?
I've been thinking about the workout my arm gets when I walk the dog. It starts the minute we walk out the door. I have to hold her close to me, until we've cleared the building....making sure there are no other neighbor doggies nearby. This ... Read more
Love those loooong walks on the beach, weather permitting. When it's too cold, we were happy to go to the exercise room. All that new equipment & our fresh determination (that we weren't going to gain any winter weight.)
As it turns out, ... Read more
No matter the weather
There are some days that are simply TOO cold.
Most days, cold or not, I am out there & logging the miles.

Exercise & keeping warm
I wear layers. I've added a windbreaker, to my layers. I went south, for the winter & didn't bring my winter coat (so I'm improvising.) Cold is still cold, dag-nabbit.
Somedays it seems that a person just can't keep that cold away, no ... Read more
Winter Wellness Challenge
This is the first time I've been a part of a SP challenge, that isn't actually a challenge "team". You get to it by clicking on "teams" and "challenge central". When you find it, you just follow the prompts/30 challenges. When you complete on... Read more
Challenges are good motivators
I've been thinking that I need to join a challenge. I need SOMETHING to motivate me!
Today, I joined the SP 30 day winter wellness challenge.
First workout was great. I def have to go with the low impact version.

Sometimes the best thing isn't the latest & the greatest
I enjoy my silly old R.Simmons Oldies workout DVDs. They aren't the latest fad, but they do the trick. He's easy to follow. No matter what exercise routine you choose, you can ramp it up or tone it down, to whatever your fitness level is. An... Read more

I have just discovered hunting socks in the sporting goods section of the discount stores. I don't hunt, so I'd never ventured up that aisle, before. Just happened upon it & noticed that they have a very nice selection of wool blend socks, for... Read more
Why am I bundled up more than everyone else?
This is a pic from a 5K that I walked last March. There was still a little ice on our route, but, the snow was all gone. It was plenty cold, as this is Michigan.

Before the weather got bitter cold, we were walking 3-5 miles, each day. Then, the cold & wind hit us. I'm lucky if I get 1 mile.....or 2. I bundle up. But, it reeks havoc with my sinuses.....I end up feeling head-achey, like I'm ill....but,... Read more
Ever amazed that you DIDN'T go over in calories??
I went over my calories, yesterday. I thought, for sure, that today was going to be a calorie disaster. But, NOPE. I am pleasantly surprised!
Every so often, DD asks to go to the coffee shop, with me. You know the kind. They sell latte... Read more
Restaurants & their calorie pitfalls
There's a certain restaurant chain (that shall remain nameless) whose entrees & salads are as much as a days worth of calories. It was one of my favorite restaurants, until I heard that yucky bit of news.
Family celebration brought us ri... Read more
The walks are working
It's a great motivator, to have DH taking an active role in all of this. We're going for walks, regularly. 2-5 miles, each day.
Our biggest meal of the day is lunch. Later there is a dinner salad. Those salads really help us to keep wi... Read more
Even the dog is on a diet
Our dog is not overweight, yet. But, she's getting pretty close! A month ago, she weighed in at 69-point-something (the most she has ever weighed.) Vet suggested we up her exercise & decrease the food. I've been meticulously measuring her fo... Read more
