I've been doing great, well good, with the exercise lately. Until tonight. But first: FitStar... I love the FitStar app. The videos of the exercises are really good and you rate each exercise and it adjusts your program depending on how ... Read more

I've been MIA except for my daily 5% exercise/LTGL postings this week. It's been a busy week with DH arriving last Sunday evening and the unpacking and then doing my regular activities and putting away things he brought that pertain to me. Mos... Read more

Beautiful day today after two partly rainy overcast chilly days. Temps got up to 80 today. I ran an errand and the dog did not have an accident! I watched her go out in the yard prior to me leaving the house and checked to make sure the... Read more

Wednesday was a pretty good day. I worked out with FitStar doing a 30 minute cardio routine. I took the dog for a long walk in the evening and she actually looked like she was enjoying it a bit for the first time since her surgery. We ended u... Read more

So glad I'm not leading a team during this challenge! I've been a bit busy and haven't had much "team time" in a few days. Today was book club and we met in our neighborhood. I would have loved to have walked to the house but we had som... Read more

Weight today is 179.3! I have not been in the 170's since Aug of 2015! Now I am aware I could be back to 180 tomorrow as I tend to fluctuate up and down by about a pound depending on what I eat but this is the lowest I've been and I am happy! ... Read more

I had a third night of not quite restful sleep due to achy joints. Tylenol and dramamine helped a bit as did the heating pad. It was a gorgeous day here and I sat on the porch midmorning to finish my coffee. ... Read more

Had a Newcomer's General Meeting today. The sandwiches were actually good (sometimes catered sandwiches can be okay) and I really like mine which was a chicken Mediterranean wrap. But I admit I indulged in some cookies. We had a guest s... Read more

Mah Jong was today. We have lunch first at Town Tavern where we play. Personally I'd prefer to play at people's houses and skip the lunch, but I admit the lunch is time to chat and get to know each other before we divide into our different tab... Read more

Just got back from a 30 minute walk. My knees have been iffy all day. Buying those 35lb containers of cat litter on Sunday and hefting them in to the cart, into the car and then into the house was not the best thing to do to arthritic knees! ... Read more

FitStar was the exercise choice today: Cardio workout with some other exercises thrown in the mix. I adapt the ones I can't do, like jumping jacks and just do my arms a bit more and step from side to side. I have to stay with low impact or my ... Read more

I'm so glad my dog can go down the steps by herself now as it was very chilly outside this morning! Quiet day here today. I took a walk in the afternoon then took the dog for a walk later. The dog walk was a slow walk as she is still... Read more

Due to not working out on Wednesday other than a short walk with the dog I decided to make sure I got a workout in today. FitStar is my workout of choice, with Sworkit coming in second. So I did a session with Fitstar and I'll try to do a shor... Read more

The dog is doing a bit better. She ate some food today. I only gave her half of the recovery formula this morning. I took her for a short walk this evening, too. She still doesn't have a lot of "pep" in her yet but does walk around outside a... Read more
