My friend Francia has joined SP. Her native language is Spanish, so doing things in English really taxes her brain! She thought she had signed up several days ago, but could not access her page. After many false starts, I set up her page for ... Read more

Went out to dinner this evening with 5 friends. I was able to look at the menu online and decide what I could have and still kind of stay within my limits. I had a Portabello Mushroom with pasta and chicken as an appetizer. I ate all of that... Read more

Went to the Dr. today (to get some estrogen) and they had me hop on the scale. My usual comment is "You people are OBSESSED with that darn scale!" This time I got on and watched her move the big weight down a whole notch and then slide it quit... Read more

Well, I am officially down 14.5 pounds! I have gradually been getting back into the suggested menus that SP provides, so today there is absolutely no meat in my diet. That is really strange to me. As my friend's granddaughter proudly proclaim... Read more

Wow, I am flabbergasted! Me, who hates to sweat/exercise, actually did the 20 minutes sitting down band video. And I did it all the way through! And much to my surprise, I did not break a sweat! My vision of "exercise" has gradually been chan... Read more

Went to a picnic and the group bought Fried Chicken from Kroger's. They also had some roasted chicken as well. Trying to be good, I took one piece of each. The roasted piece was about 1/4 the size of the fried piece! I ask you, is that really... Read more

I went to the NC Zoo in Asheboro today and it was sure a disappointment. The weather was beautiful but the zoo was just blah! Seemed like all I saw was the backsides of what animals we saw! Many exhibits were lions, only one Zebra ... Read more

Boy did I get anal yesterday! I looked at the weekly exercises and clicked on the demos of all of them, then printed them all out. I inserted them in sheet protectors and put them in alphabetical order. Then I used those little metal ring thin... Read more

Finally, my Dr. has given me the OK to drop the High Protein/Low Carb monster I was told to eat, after close to 4 weeks! What a relief! I immediately went out and bought strawberries, Arnold's Sandwich thins and some low-fat sliced Turkey for ... Read more
Finally motivated to exercise!
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      1 comments

Bottom line...I don't like to sweat! I will find any reason what so ever to avoid exercising. I have a treadmill in my bedroom and have even had a shelf put up to hold my DVD player so I can watch while I "tread". I don't do it. I've been re... Read more
