Back on the Bike

Wednesday, March 03, 2010      6 comments

Alarm goes off. Followed by snooze button. Alarm. Snooze. Alarm. Snooze. I'm tired. My head hurts. I don't want to get up. I could sleep 2 more hours before I "really" have to go to work. I roll up and out. I remember telling my husband this mor... Read more

Had to give a pep talk

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      5 comments

What a funny turn of events after I was feeling blue this a.m. One of my University students came to do some work with me this a.m. - and while here had a meltdown before my eyes, repeating that same overwhelmed scenario that I just blurte... Read more

Seeking serenity

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      4 comments

I vaguely feel like I am having a crisis. I am overwhelmed at work. I am not happy with the state of my relationship with my husband. And I am not overhauling my life as quickly as I want it to be done. Aaaaaaah! I can stay focused and taki... Read more

Part 2 of my day

Monday, March 01, 2010      4 comments

I built errands into my day at work and walked to the bank. Frequently in the past, I would send one of my student staff in my stead for that bit of business. Not today! I used the time to build on my cardio from earlier. I completed my goal of ... Read more

Gave it what I got

Monday, March 01, 2010      6 comments

This morning kind of kicked me. I rolled out of bed as hubby rolled out the door to work. Figured it was a good time to jump around the living room with Richard Simmons. I got through 10 mins and and fizzled out. What's up with that? I have been... Read more

Doing Cartwheels!

Sunday, February 28, 2010      9 comments

I'm doing cartwheels across the lawn! (well virtually for now --- cause we still a yard full of snow -- and because I've never done a cartwheel. One day, though, I will do cartwheels. For now, I am spinning in delight in my mind. :) I we... Read more

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Saturday, February 27, 2010      6 comments

It's hard to show up at that restaurant without singing that song in my head. I wonder if everyone feels that tug. :) I ordered the Asian Glazed Salmon which I THOUGHT was a good choice. When I can home and googled the nutritionals, I found... Read more

Building Endurance

Friday, February 26, 2010      7 comments

Boogied with Richard Simmons again today - with hubby just a few steps away in the kitchen. I was a bit self-conscious at first, but then just got into it. I was able to keep up better and last longer than yesterday. In fact, I did 15 consecutiv... Read more

Take Two

Thursday, February 25, 2010      12 comments

I got up early to go to the gym this a.m. -- but changed it around when it started to snow. I decided to stay in and down one of the dvd's I recently got - Richard Simmons Boogie Down the pounds (it's disco!). First time on, I was not keep... Read more

Surprising realization to me: I am not just changing on the outside; I am changing on the inside. I am seeing myself differently. The thought of this just stopped in my tracks. I am feeling so much better about myself. I am not feeling sorr... Read more

Snowy forecast might lead to a homebound day --- Hey I am not complaining!!! I may finally break into my Richard Simmons DVD's and start dancing off the pounds. Disco here I come! Shake, shake, shake,...... Read more

4:30am wake up call

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      4 comments

It's 4:30, my husband snickered. He'd been up for a while and could hear my alarm being slapped on to snooze again. I still need to tweak my timing for going to bed and getting up to work out, but I am making progress. I was out the door 15 mins... Read more

No More Mrs. Nice Guy

Tuesday, February 23, 2010      5 comments

I did not roll over and go back to sleep when my alarm went off in the 4:30a.m. range. While I do need to tweak my timing for being up and out the door, I was so pleased with myself that I was up and out and riding the bike by 5:15-ish. Woot! ... Read more

Hubby was happy I lost the 3 lbs and volunteered to make a new low-fat recipe that he heard on tv. :) He's on the bandwagon. Woo hoo!... Read more
