My NEW total body workout
I have been married for 24 years (to the same man, I might add
) and can count on ONE hand the times I have ... Read more
Just a touch of withdrawal...
So this morning I took a walk since I won't get to do Zumba today. As a matter of fact, the earliest I will get to do it is Tuesday, so I am having to be creative with my workouts. At first I thought it would be awful, but then I took off walkin... Read more
The Zumba Floozie...
It's no secret that I love Zumba. So when I decided to recommit to getting healthier, that was the one form of exercise that appealed to me. I used to do quite a bit of walking, but I just can't seem to get out the door and do it. ... Read more
I have learned things about myself in the past 3 years.
The biggest one, I think, is how most of weight loss is a mental battle. My body won't move unless my brain can convince it to. Once we get started (my brain and my body) I am almost ... Read more
Going toe-to-toe with my momma
I think I have mentioned that my mom had a long hospital stay from April 6 until May 26. She is recovering from a stroke that affected her left side and a portion of her brain.
Two days ago, we decided that we would make salmon cakes for d... Read more
I made an omelet for breakfast. As a matter of fact, I am eating it as I write this. So I hopped on over to the food tracker and put in my ingredients. One whole egg, check. Couple of egg whites, check. Can of mushrooms. Check. Some ... Read more
Back in the saddle, on the wagon, etc...
I went to a Zumba class today and it was even more fun than I remembered! I was a little late and got there in the middle of the "arms" song and I'm STILL wondering how I will move my arms in the morning! ... Read more
Wow! What a long time without blogging. Please know that even though I wasn't saying anything, I was still watching to see what was going on. I have to admit, though, that Audra (Newstart127) was my biggest motivation for getting on the scales t... Read more
Hello everyone! Wow, it has been 37 days since I updated on this thing and even longer than that since I've blogged. Where does the time go?
Nothing new to report on the weight-loss issue. I've probably gained back everything I've lost but ... Read more
Running in the rain...
This is week 2 of the "Couch 2 5K" training. I am supposed to jog for 90 seconds and then walk for 120 seconds. I think I am jogging more than walking, so hopefully it will all work out okay. I didn't get a chance to work out this morning, so wh... Read more
On the right track...
When I found out last week that my son had band practice EVERY DAY until school starts, I was devastated. I just didn't know how I was going to work that in each day, with all the running that I have to do for my mom.
Oh, what a BLESSING i... Read more
The Ripple Effect
It's sad to say, but mom's smoking has become everyone's focus lately in our family.
I thought I had made peace with it and decided that she is an adult and we have told her (repeatedly) what the doctor said, how we all feel, and why we wa... Read more
Another Big Fat Failure day...
I am sooooooooo discouraged and disappointed and aggravated right now.
I went to my appointment today with my GP. She is a nurse practitioner so maybe I should call her my GNP (general nurse practitioner). LOL! I just about killed myself t... Read more
Just because I understand it...
doesn't mean I like it. I HATE ADDICTION. I do not hate the people who are addicted, but I am SO MAD at addiction right now. Let me explain.
In a nutshell, my mom has been a smoker for 53 years. After her most recent "cardiac event," the do... Read more
I am eleven cents richer!
Since I wrote that I was going to walk to the Dollar General yesterday, I felt that I HAD to do it. After all, all my SparkPeoples were thinking about me trudging in the heat, right? And it was hot. I thought we were getting a cold front but it ... Read more
