Sunday, December 18, 2011      3 comments

I'm not quite healed up well enough to do aerobics, so I am doing ST. Different parts of my body every other day. I get in a moderate pace walk 4 days a week, too. Just want to keep the metabolism from slowing down. I've been sick for two weeks ... Read more

I ought to start feeling better now that I'm on antibiotics and have some cough medicine for bronchitis. This morning I'd had enough and decided it was time to get to the Dr, but when I called my PCP's office, I couldn't get an answer. The... Read more

Found a neat link on StumbleUpon today. It shows the comparisons of the normal serving size of foods from years ago, to the current serving size considered normal. It also gives the calorie count of these sizes. Some of the common foods we eat..... Read more

I'm so excited! My husband gave me a great Christmas present. A pair of asics sneakers. Expensive ones! He said I need them for all my walking...I do! They put a bounce in my step. I can't wait to take a long walk in them. I'm limiting my walk... Read more

I may be off from my job with Shirley today, but I'm making good use of my time. I read a blog that mentioned to squeeze in 10 push-ups at intervals through the day. Today I have on Christmas music. Every time I start a new album, I'm doing... Read more

We went to a pizza joint for dinner after my hubby picked me up from work tonight. We got one piece of pizza to share and a meatball stromboli to share. I ate my half of the pizza, but only had 4 bites of the stromboli. Well, since I have a col... Read more

Party went well!

Doing pretty good, my cold is on the downswing. Last night, I went to a birthday party after we took my mother-in-law to Cracker Barrel for dinner. I don't have much appetite so I ate very little. This is a good thing because I didn't work ... Read more

What do I do?

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      9 comments

What do I do? I just started a cold last night. I've heard that you don't exercise the first few days of a cold, unless you feel up to it. Not to exercise when you have a fever. But in general there's no harm in working out when you ha... Read more

Dragging today

I have felt draggy again today. I think I am starting a cold. I did walk in the morning and also did my circuit training DVD this afternoon. It's not good for me to get sick because my one job is being a companion/driver for a 90 year old woman... Read more

Sunday, December 04, 2011      2 comments

Dragging today. I just realized i didn't have any protein for lunch. Only Tomato Basil Bisque Soup and a tomato/cucumber/red onion salad. That's probably why I'm dragging. I enjoy keeping track of my food and exercise on my iPhone App for... Read more

My problem started with the fact that I didn't exercise last Sunday. I'd decided to go to church, which ate up my morning, and I didn't get up early enough to walk beforehand. Then I had to work all afternoon. When I got home at 7 it was too lat... Read more

Just having a good day. Got my Christmas cards all written out and ready to mail. I'll hang on to them for a little while. I used to send them the day after Thanksgiving. But that's a little early! I didn't get to exercise yesterday and tod... Read more

There was a special on tv the night before Thanksgiving that was by The Biggest Loser. One of the hints they shared was to get your exercise in the morning before you did anything for the big day. I must have slept on it, cuz when morning came, ... Read more

Started today with a bang. Got out and took an hour walk, 4 miles, before going to my 10:00 job. When I was almost home from my walk, my daughter who is coming over for Thanksgiving called to finalize plans for tomorrow. Fortunately I had ... Read more
