My 52nd birthday has come. Overall, I'm feeling good. Sure, I'd like to be a few less pounds (OK, a BUNCH less!), but I think since I started on SP and really being conscience about how I eat, the kind of exercise I do, and other health-relate... Read more

A proud yet sad moment for me today -- I said good bye to my "baby" -- my youngest daughter -- as she heads off for college at Colorado State University! She and her mother are doing the road trip out west, and there is a little part of me that... Read more

- Last week's BodyPump class went well, but I clearly overdid it, as my triceps were KILLING me a few days after. They are much better, but plan to lower my weights this week and not repeat my painful experience from a week ago. - Attended... Read more

While I have been doing some basic work at the gym and in the yard, I had yet to join any sort of intense exercise class since sometime in April. My new YMCA has "BodyPump", which I was used to doing in CT, and they have a noontime class on Tue... Read more

All, After about a 2 month hiatus, I have returned to SP! This was not a "fall off the wagon" issue, rather the complexities and stress of moving from CT to DE. Good news: We moved to DE! Bad news: The sale of our house in CT fe... Read more

Amazingly enough, my 9 pound drop last week was just enough to get me into the finals of the Biggest Loser competition! So the "prize" is 4 personal training sessions! Session #1 was yesterday, and like all of the other group ones, I was left ... Read more

Today was a banner day. The final weigh in for the "Biggest Loser" competition I have been involved with. The past two weigh-ins, I had been plateau'd at 241'ish. So my PT gave me an assignment: boost my proteins and keep pushing hard on the... Read more

Wow -- just did some calculating for my workout today. The gaol: how far could I speed walk for one hour on my local high school track (which has a cushioned surface, btw!). Result: 6600 meters, or 16.5 laps! Equating that into miles = 4.1... Read more
