Back problems
Friday, January 15, 2016      3 comments

Maybe it was the exercise bending over and lifting dumb bells to work my legs yesterday that got things started, but early this morning (5:30) when I had to get up, I tweaked my lower back a bit and immediately was concerned that I would be able... Read more
Adventures in cooking
Thursday, January 14, 2016      4 comments

Let me preface this with saying that I DO know how to cook but do very little. Almost 30 years ago before our son was born, my hubby was unemployed and suggested that he stay home with the kids ( we also had a 2 year old daughter). Thus my hub... Read more

It was nice to see the scales finally move down a bit today - not a whole lot - but it's a start. Hopefully if I keep moving they will too! I knew that I would be walking to the library this afternoon for a weekly knitting group so didn't ... Read more
Snowy day
Monday, January 11, 2016      2 comments

It was off to have coffee with some retired friends this morning so there was no time to jump on the treadmill, especially since I woke up a bit late. It was also snowy which around here means snowy streets (even main roads) and extra time need... Read more
Day of Rest

Being Sunday I was up and off to church so had already determined I wouldn't get in any cardio since the service starts at 9:30 and I have trouble getting there with much time to spare at the best of times (I was actually a bit late today)! ... Read more

I slept in (hey it's Saturday) so was a bit late getting to the cardio exercise but even with the extra sleep, my body felt a bit tired and unmotivated and finding some music to correct that seemed to be a problem. I wasn't sure if the tirednes... Read more
Five days and counting
Friday, January 08, 2016      3 comments

So I have managed to hit the treadmill and/or do some aerobic activity for five days in a row now. I have also completed four days of the Jump Start Your Workout challenge and most of the Realistic Resolutions challenge. Hard for me to plan t... Read more
So far so good
Thursday, January 07, 2016      1 comments

Woke up this morning not really feeling motivated to get up and hit the treadmill, but I did it anyway. I've been battling a slight cold with a bit of a headache all week but so far have not let it stop me. I did have to push myself a bit this... Read more
Back again
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      4 comments

Well I'm back again hoping to make 2016 the year that I really and truly do become healthier and more committed to a healthier life style. I knew better than to start on January 1st as I am always still in holiday mode, but attending the funera... Read more
Pleasantly Surprised
Sunday, July 06, 2014      4 comments

I originally started to blog to help keep me on track with my exercise. However four weeks ago, my husband and I left on vacation to visit family in Calgary and later in Ohio. We ended up travelling 7300 km over a period of three weeks (plus a... Read more
Best laid plans sometimes go astray!

So the plan to walk downtown to my hair appointment today (probably a 25-30 minute walk one way) didn't quite work because of threatening skies and lack of time. However I had two or three errands I wanted to accomplish downtown so the alternate... Read more

Yes I procrastinate about a number of things like making phone calls, answering email, exercise (of course!) etc. All-nighters to complete university essays were common - back in the day. I guess I felt I worked better under pressure. As a... Read more
Catching up

So my goal to blog daily so far is not quite there! lol! It didn't help that we went to Georgetown to our son's on Saturday so that we could attend and cheer him on in his first triathlon of the season in Milton on Sunday. He had his best time... Read more

Blogging is not something that I have really gotten into but I have read that keeping a journal can be an important tool to being successful with weight loss and management long term so I will give this a shot! I can usually do a pretty goo... Read more
