9/1/15: Phenomenal Day!
Today was a rest day in terms of exercise, but boy was it a big day professionally! One of the blogs published by our denomination had a post today featuring me and one of my co-ministers, talking about the partnership between the two churches w... Read more
8/31/15: Yoga Week 1, Day 5
I completed my first week of yoga x 5, and did some cardio minutes on the Gazelle glider too! That's five days of both cardio and strength. The next two days, my busy workdays, are rest days for exercise and then I start Week 2 of the yoga progr... Read more
8/30/15: Yoga Week 1, Day 4
Back in the groove today--this evening I did the 35-minute yoga workout plus 30 minutes on the Gazelle.
On just Day 4 of the yoga I am already noticing that my form is improving--my balance and flexibility are both already getting a bit bet... Read more
8/29/15: No Yoga
Today did not go as I had hoped. I've been struggling with tomorrow's sermon but it will be okay.
I decided I didn't have enough time to spare to do both yoga and the Gazelle, so decided to go for the cardio minutes on Gazelle, also hoping ... Read more
August 28, 2015: Yoga Week 1, Day 3
I procrastinated this morning so I didn't get to workout until evening--but I'm super proud of myself because I then did the 35 minutes yoga workout and followed it immediately with 45 minutes on the Gazelle...15 minutes longer than I was on the... Read more
August 27, 2015: Yoga Week 1, Day 2
I did yoga again this morning and then this evening did a half hour on the Gazelle so I got both strength and cardio in today. I can't even remember the last time that happened on the same day.
It was a kind of frustrating day personally, t... Read more
August 26, 2015: Yoga Week 1, Day 1
Today I was in the mood for yoga (for the first time in a long time) so instead of doing the Gazelle glider as I had planned, I put in the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga DVD. It's a six-week program with three levels. You're supposed to do each ... Read more
August 25, 2015: Sore jaw
My jaw is still sore from the filling yesterday. If it's not better tomorrow I'm going to call the dentist and see if this is normal or not. It reminds me too much of my major TMJ flare-up about 5 1/2 years ago which got so bad I slipped both di... Read more
August 24, 2015: Ugh, Monday
Well, I'm glad today is over!
I woke up not feeling great (just fatigued) so after getting Aidan out the door to the school bus, I went back to bed. A few hours later I was still tired but had to get up anyway.
I had a filling done thi... Read more
August 23, 2015: Good-byes are hard
Today was my farewell to my internship church. (See yesterday's blog post if you want details and missed them.) It went well, and I left feeling loved by them but also sad to go, even with the excitement of my new job balancing that out.
Th... Read more
August 22, 2015: On Retreat
So, I did well with diet (not hard since the meals here are pretty healthy) but opted out of archery because the list was too long (supposed to be 15 people max but people kept signing up and there were more than 20) so I chose to let someone el... Read more
August 21, 2015: A Little Late
I'm up at a church retreat and didn't realize I can only get internet in the lobby of the lodge, so I couldn't blog from my room last night! I'll do two today to make up for it.
Yesterday was mostly about preparing to come up here into the ... Read more
August 20, 2015: Daily Blogging
I'm going to try what one of my SparkFriends (Janet!) does and blog daily, as a way of keeping myself on track better.
I am tired of periodic blog posts hitting restart, and yet after a summer of travel, here I am again. I ended my most rec... Read more
Pushing the "Restart" Button
I was just on a trip with my mom for an annual church conference. We are both unhappy with our weight, and re-committing to getting more healthy. We both have had weight loss success in the past and know what we need to do, we just haven't been ... Read more
Disney, Here We Come!
Well, not until November, but the planning has started!
