Monday, January 17, 2011      4 comments

I think I will have to accept the fact that week two may take me more than 3 sessions to be ready to move on to week 3. I Started by jumping rope, and I was able to walk 3/run 2 today, but it was because I decreased my running speed from 5 mph ... Read more

What a fabulous beginning to the new year. I spent New Year's Day with Ann and her family. She invited me for her family Christmas, so my kids and I went down a day early to hang out and help her get everything ready. We went to the grocery s... Read more

As I was catching up on some of my daily Spark emails, I ran across this one with a quote from Abraham Lincoln. I especially liked it, because it really speaks to where I am right now. My progress has been slow lately, but I'm not giving up. ... Read more

Holy Buckets! It is snowing to beat the band. If I was feeling overwhelmed about not getting a chance to squeeze in exercise because of the Christmas Vocal concert for my daughter tonight- that's no longer an issue. Concert is canceled, and w... Read more

Had a great day yesterday. Lots of healthy options on the table yesterday. I really felt no desire to go overboard, and I found that I don't even have the room anymore. I had two walks yesterday- one before dinner that earned me over 2 activi... Read more

This is, first of all, directed to myself, but I trust many others can relate as well. Dear stamina,( or will power, or strength- whatever you want to call it) This is not the first or most difficult thing you have done. You survived ju... Read more
