Feeling REALLY Rough Today...
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      11 comments

Had a good day yesterday. Stayed within my calories, got in 85 minutes of fitness. But this morning I feel like CRAP. REALLY exhausted, my right knee hurts, and I have a spot on my right foot that's infected. Stupid foot - I had moved my off... Read more

So my brother has moved in! We had a nice smooth transition and I think he is happy to be with us. He said that Saturday night is the first time he has not cried himself to sleep in a long while. That means so much to me! So now we focus on ... Read more

Did some HEAVY cleaning and furniture moving last night. At the end of three hours, I was TOAST. So I left the mopping and vacuuming until this morning. I didn't sleep very well, but was wide awake at 6:30 am. So I hopped up and finished the... Read more
Stop Thinking Like a Fat Girl
Friday, April 13, 2012      4 comments

I noticed something the other day. I THINK LIKE A FAT GIRL. When I'm starting to go down stairs, I think, "Now go slow, be careful, hold the rail - your knees are going to hurt." So consequently, I overcompensate and don't challenge my leg mu... Read more

Back in the 80's, my dream was to be a professional singer. I almost got there, but fell in love and life's roller coaster took over. About 10 months ago, I decided thatI wanted to sing again - no illusions about becoming famous now, but just ... Read more

So things changed drastically yesterday for me. I'm moving my brother in with me this weekend. He has Stage IV Colorectal Cancer. But last night despite all the stress, I went home and took care of myself by continuing my fitness plans ... Read more
Encouraging Results!
Tuesday, April 10, 2012      2 comments

So I've basically been working on making a healthy lifestyle a habit for a little over a month now. The results are very encouraging - and even moreso because they are slow and steady, which lets me know they are PERMANENT, if I only continue m... Read more
Easter... An Interesting Day
Monday, April 09, 2012      0 comments

Easter was pretty quiet, and thus a challenging day for me. Had a GREAT day on Saturday - fitness wise and also socially. Enjoyed dinner out with a girlfriend and then went to hear a friend's band play. Sunday morning started with an email fr... Read more

Saturday, April 07, 2012      1 comments

Okay... so I'm not in the mood to continue cleaning today. So I'm not! I got up this morning and went to a Fitness Boot Camp meetup group I found on the web last night. Thought it would be fun to try something different, and it was! One hour... Read more

Had the day off, which was lovely. Spent several hours cleaning and sorting. Still ate healthy even though I was home (always a challenge). I just signed up to do a new "boot camp" workout in the morning - can't wait!... Read more
Stumble, stumble... but didn't fall!
Thursday, April 05, 2012      1 comments

Last night was odd. All day long I was pumped and motivated and had plans to go to the gym. On the way home, it all changed - and I only live MINUTES from home. Now, it wasn't all bad - just weird. As soon as I got home, I was going to take ... Read more

Wednesday, April 04, 2012      2 comments

Whether I like to admit it or not, I'm a half century old...AND my body has been carrying around way more weight than it was designed to from about age 6 on. So it stands to reason that I would have some issues with knee and joint pain. I have... Read more

Had two people join SparkPeople just because I posted my blog to FB yesterday. Isn't that great? It's so important to have the support of others on this journey - and it also helps me to know that others need me. Yesterday was a good day all ... Read more
Back Again...
Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

Actually, I've been "back on the wagon" for almost a month now. But I was afraid to talk about it since I've been on and off before. But as I said on another person's blog today, the only failure is when you stop trying; therefore, the fact th... Read more
