Just came back in from my 4th shoveling of the snow here in DE today. 18 inches and it is still coming down steadily! PIA but I have to admit it IS good exercise!... Read more

Contemplating life at age 52

Sunday, March 15, 2009      4 comments

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

My "baby" is off to college!

Thursday, August 14, 2008      3 comments

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

Exercise Update

Monday, July 21, 2008      0 comments

- 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

First BodyPump Class in 3 months!

Tuesday, July 15, 2008      0 comments

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

I'm Back (slowly but surely)

Thursday, June 26, 2008      0 comments

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

BL Finals!

Friday, November 09, 2007      0 comments

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

Mission Accomplished!

Thursday, November 01, 2007      1 comments

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

6600 Meters Today!

Sunday, October 14, 2007      0 comments

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

I attended the organizational meeting for my gym's "Biggest Loser Competition" last night. Organized along the same lines as the show on NBC. The competition formally begins on Monday. Exciting, but a little scary. I've never done a formal w... Read more

32 and many more to go!

Tuesday, August 21, 2007      4 comments

2 more pounds down this week! Total of 32 YTD! Yes, it feels good! The clothes are getting loose (in some cases too loose!). Energy level is very high. My goal to hit 217 by year end is very doable. Back in June when I decided to red... Read more
