So far...

Thursday, April 08, 2010      4 comments

Today marks my seven week and I have lost just over 15 pounds. I track all my nutrition and drink plenty of water. I walk as much as I can at work, I ride my recumbent bike a few times a week, and I have increased both my time and my intensity. ... Read more

A bit frustrated

Wednesday, April 07, 2010      8 comments

Today is the first day of the Healthy U Challenge and I really wanted to be totally pyched. I think the problem is that I looked at the results of the last challenge that just finished. There were both male and female winners and both percentag... Read more

What do you do?

So here is my challenge. I tried jumping jacks for a team challenge today and I wanted to add them to my fitness tracker. They are not listed under other exercises, but under cardio. However, they only have a listing for vigorous. My jumping jac... Read more

Awards and stuff

Monday, April 05, 2010      2 comments

Well it was a nice surprise today to get some awards for my successes last month. I started getting the emails from others saying they liked a feed and then I had a few award emails. Positive reinforcement is a good thing. I've been trying ... Read more

The Good and the Bad

Sunday, April 04, 2010      4 comments

It is a little sad to not have family over for Easter. However, I at least was able to have time with my sons on separate days this week. Sometimes the individual time is better for quality purposes. I will hopefully get a good yard work ... Read more

Some days there isn't much time.

Saturday, April 03, 2010      1 comments

I wasn't going to write this as a blog, but we have a challenge in one of my teams that gives me points for blogs. I would like to post one everyday, but I'm afraid I will run out of things to Blog about. The journal entry points are easy becaus... Read more

Raised Garden

Friday, April 02, 2010      4 comments

I was asked about my raised garden so I thought I would post a picture of one. We built ours last year and this will be our first year of planting in it. I'm so looking forward to it, but here in NY we must wait until May. We have had a fabulous... Read more

The Last Dance

Thursday, April 01, 2010      4 comments

Last night was the last dance class. I was feeling a little sad because I enjoyed going every week and learning new moves. The official last dance was Hip Hop. I guess there are many different versions of Hip Hop. Actually my granddaughter and ... Read more

Last night the exercise of the evening in my Spring Fitness Challenge class was Kickboxing. When she first told us this I was not so sure I would enjoy it. I have had back spasms being worked out by my physical therapist so I thought maybe the k... Read more

The results are in!

We have been waiting patiently all day to hear if we were chosen for the Healthy U challenge. One of the girls came up to me and said she was in, then another was accepted. And yes, finally all four of my co-workers plus myself had received an e... Read more

Tomorrow they choose

Monday, March 29, 2010      5 comments

Tomorrow is the big day. They choose the participants for the “Clintwood Healthy U Challenge”. I had a co-worker email me about it today because I had the day off, so I know she is excited to find out. I am hoping all of us from work get in that... Read more

It's Official

Thursday, March 25, 2010      5 comments

I'm out of shape. I shouldn't beat myself up. I had gotten away from exercise last year due to injuries and packed on a ton of weight. I should realize I can not do what I could before and I must build myself up again. Instead I took three ... Read more

Spring Fitness Roll

I have been with SparkPeople a little over 4 weeks now. Prior to finding the site, which I came across when I read a review on the book "Spark", I had signed up for the class I take at our local college called "Dance You Way to Weight Loss". I h... Read more

1st day of Spring

Saturday, March 20, 2010      4 comments

I don't remember a 1st day of spring being this nice weather wise here in upstate NY in quite a while. I spent hours outside cleaning my garden beds, racking leaves, applying mulch, and cleaning my pond. The sun made me do it. I realize that we ... Read more

The Weekly Dance Class

Wednesday, March 17, 2010      6 comments

Tonight took us back in time to a time I do remember, but not one I danced too. We learned Disco and Retro. I believe they are close to the same thing except called different names depending on the generation. The closest I got to a Disco establ... Read more
