Talking to myself

Tuesday, September 13, 2011      1 comments

For some reason, I have really gotten off track this week, perhaps because I had two weekends in a row where I wasn't really working the program. And, the Wii says I have gained weight every day for the last four days--very discouraging, since ... Read more

Revved Elations

Wow, what a great day. Ate BBQ TWICE, and haven't logged it yet, but I bet I'm not under my minimum calories today. That means that I will probably have gained weight from last week's weigh in, not to mention the amount of sodium I have on boa... Read more

Had a great time, going to do it again tonight.

Went swimming for 30 minutes last night. I am finding some of it like trying to chew gum and walk at the same time: I understand what to do, but can't seem to do it all at the same time. None-the-less, I am still afloat at the end of the swim... Read more

still resisting temptation, but not always

Had another good day today, complete with following my diet plan and doing the gym thing. Plan to swim again tomorrow, so exercise is a given then. I'm sort of saving ahead for this weekend. There is a local music/street festival called R... Read more

Back on track, sort of

Getting back to where I want to be now. My physical problems seem to have resolved. I decided I needed to join the gym where I've been having a trial period in spite of the sudden need to come up with $30,000 dollars to repair my house, went a... Read more

Slow but working on it.

Would you believe: I managed to slip on the ceramic tile last night, and landed on my rear end. The worst of it was that I landed on my left elbow, which jammed an already unhappy left shoulder hard. It's a wonder I didn't break anything. T... Read more

Decompressing and De-Stressing

I SO do not want to grow up to be my mother!! Got back from visiting her in Iowa at about 5 PM today. I'm really glad my daughter went with me. It helps dilute the stress a little. I didn't do too badly as far as calories are concerned,... Read more

I am doing so well!!

Just realized that the weight goal I had set for Oct. 1, I have met today! Wanted to be 10 pounds down by the time I left for Scotland and Ireland, and today I am 10.5 down! New goal: be at 205 before I get on the plane!!... Read more

Update on The Quest: GUESS WHAT I CAN DO!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, September 03, 2011      2 comments

Had my second grown-up swimming lesson tonight, and guess what!! I can let go of the side of the tank in 17 foot water, not paddle, and simultaneously not drown!! Our instructor, Marianne, tonight insisted that we are both too afraid of the wa... Read more

Another problem I never dreamed I would ever have.

Well, today Our Heroine decided that she was going to do a trial at her "second choice" gym. I have to say that I really enjoyed it, although my thighs and legs, especially, are really aching now. I got to the gym at about 4 PM, and signed... Read more

The Saga Continues

Monday, August 29, 2011      3 comments

When we left Our Heroine yesterday, she had declared her intention to go to the gym near her work today and try it out. If you will remember, she has never used any of these machines, is not sure what most of them are, and will need kind and g... Read more

When I did my weekly tracking this morning, I said my energy was fairly high, but it seems to have gotten lost somewhere in the interval. Even so, I actually have gotten a lot done today. I visited another gym, and decided that although it had... Read more

As much as I enjoyed the swimming yesterday, I woke up this morning tired and achy (not stiff, amazingly enough, just achy), and couldn't seem to talk myself off the couch although there is a LOT that needs done around here. Finally a friend ca... Read more

That was really a lot of fun!!

Went swimming with a friend from church tonight. The thing is, I really don't swim, and this woman swims in competitions. This started as "come along Friday and I'll show you around the gym" after church last Sunday. At some point it morphed ... Read more

revelations, and a problem I never thought I would ever have.

Started myother singing group tonight, and I really like the conductor. In getting to it, though, I had a couple revelations, and over the last couple weeks have developed a problem I did not anticipate. The first revelation was when I cam... Read more
