Counting Backwards, Day 28!
Hurrying around getting things done before going out of town for weekend women's retreat, returning Monday afternoon. The Franciscan Center of Tampa Bay has great food and lots of it. It's always a challenge not to overindulge. I'm bringing s... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 29
Whew! In spite of last night's insomnia, I got a lot done today and plenty of exercise. Big accomplishment: I got all the way through a pilates video and didn't have to substitute anything. Granted, I took the easier options when there were ... Read more
"I decided to take an aerobics class..." LOL
I don't remember where I found this, but I thought it was a hoot!
"I decided to take an aerobics class. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotard on, the class was over."... Read more
Counting Backwards, Days 31 and 30
Day 31 was very busy, but productive. I had business to do with my mother-in-law's estate, and things are looking good about the sale of her house. But it meant more eating on the run at odd times and not keeping track very well. I was gratef... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 32--BAD, but good
and downhill from there. BAD food day. However, I am not feeling bad about it, not feeling guilty, not mentally beating up on myself because I learned something useful. I wasn't craving sweets; I wanted FATS. I... Read more

Counting Backwards, Day 34
Ugh! I am dead-tired. But my daughter and her things are all moved into her new home. I worked hard cleaning, washing, unpacking, searching, and assembling a complex set of shelving that weighed a ton. No idea how many calories I burned toda... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 35!
Woohoo, woohoo! I've started another good week. I've been doing longer videos, and I can feel a difference in my body. Stooping, reaching, stretching all feel easier and good. Noticed when I cleaned the bottom shelf of the pantry where the ... Read more
Counting Backwards Day 36!
This has been another good day. I started off with a SP yoga video I hadn't done before and continued my major house clean-out. Took stuff to Salvation Army so there are no boxes sitting in my bedroom. Discovered that my Italian ice place has... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 37!
Another really good day! I treated myself to a stability ball awhile back and used it for the first time today with a SP video. Fun! I could do everything.
I'm not thrilled with the new fitness tracker. What happened to the individual... Read more
Counting backwards, Day 38!
I've had a good day. Slept well after being on the run all day yesterday, will go to bed early tonight too so I can catch up. I got a lot of cleaning done, dropped off stuff at a thriftshop, and took newspapers to the church.
For exercise... Read more
And counting backwards...Day 39!
Very full day on the run. It's 3:30 now and I'm a bit over on cal so far; will have to adjust later. Proud of myself - got up early to get in a SP video before dashing out the door for 8 AM pollworkers' class. I'll be so happy when the DVD I ... Read more

And Counting...(backwards!) Day 41
Under calories today which is unusual. I had time only to throw some berries, almond milk and choc peanut butter powder in the blender for lunch. A couple of under calorie days won't hurt, but I'm not going to make a habit of it. I feel reall... Read more
