I should QUIT

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      9 comments

I don't make New Years Resolutions, but if I were going to make one, it would be to quit the gym that I pay for every month and never go to. Hundreds of dollars down the drain every year and yet I can't seem to make myself walk in there and Q... Read more

Day 106: 42 days since my last confession, I mean blog.

Wednesday, November 06, 2013      1 comments

Okay... blogging is not really my thing, but I can concede it's value if only because it makes you 'think' about what you are trying to achieve. I reached my first weight loss goal of 25 lbs in my goal time frame.. whoo hoo!! I feel GREA... Read more

Day 63: Bought a FitBit Flex

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      2 comments

I often don't have time to go to the gym, so my goal this month is to get those '10,000 steps' in consistently. I had a little clip on pedometer, but I bought the FitBit hoping for more consistency and more accuracy. I'm finding the 'sleep' inf... Read more

Day 47: Spark Ap Disappointment

Sunday, September 08, 2013      1 comments

I was camping this past weekend and was prepared to use the Spark Ap on my Galaxy 3 phone for the first time.. I was disappointed. I found it cumbersome and could not access my "Groupings" that I use constantly. Guess I have to do some rese... Read more

Day 40: Plateau already??

Monday, September 02, 2013      0 comments

Rather than set a long-term weight loss goal which I figured would seem to large to ever reach, I set a short-term and hopefully attainable one. That was 40 days ago. First few weeks were incredibly successful ... I was excited and motiv... Read more

Day 32: Empty Nester

Saturday, August 24, 2013      3 comments

My daughter moved into her dorm at the university today. I'm incredibly excited for her, but I'm feeling the "empty nest" blues already. I almost wish I were an emotional eater as I want an outlet, but I guess an Advil will have to do. <... Read more

Day26: Softball Umpire

Sunday, August 18, 2013      1 comments

I play softball which barely qualifies as a ''fitness activity", but I'm also a softball umpire where I am almost constantly on the move for 80 minutes/game. I umped 4 games on Saturday and 3 today, Sunday. Every muscle in my body is protestin... Read more

Day 18: Can exercise be addicting?

Saturday, August 10, 2013      4 comments

When I came down the stairs this morning, I went back up 3 times before coming back down to start the coffee. Thought that was a cool idea, so I did that several times today. I also found myself marching in place for 10 minutes during a work ... Read more

Day 16: Back to the Gym.. really??

Thursday, August 08, 2013      3 comments

I joined a gym over two years ago.. never walked through the front door since the day I joined. It's been an expensive impulse. So, last week I went in for the first time... needless to say they were a little shocked to see me. I booked a... Read more

Day 12: On the Road

Sunday, August 04, 2013      0 comments

Dinner party last night... food intake was monitored and reasonably successful... but my biggest calorie intake for the day was alcohol... not that much, but it adds up quick. As of this afternoon we are on the road for a few days, visiting... Read more

Friday, August 02, 2013      0 comments

Pasta .. I love pasta and have not had any for several weeks. Last night I made some with a Pesto and Prawns.. and it was SO GOOD. It was terribly difficult to resist eating the whole bowl! Fortunately my daughter ate the leftovers and took t... Read more

Day 6: Survived the Weekend!

Monday, July 29, 2013      2 comments

Even with a house party on Saturday and a family dinner on Sunday, I managed to stay on track with my food choices. Limited fat intake, and gall bladder is staying quiet. Whoot! I'm still recovering slightly from my hospital stay so exerc... Read more

Day 1: Time to get serious about my health

Thursday, July 25, 2013      2 comments

July 24, 2013 Just returned home from 5 days in hospital due to Gall Bladder complications. First time in my LIFE that I've been in hospital for a 'medical' reason. (I've had accidents and broken countless bones, but never ever had any he... Read more
