…yoga at the Senior Citizens' Center left me sore for two days! Astounding to realize that I am a senior citizen, according to our town. How on earth did this happen? In my mind, I'm only 28 years old--half my calendar age. Wow. ... Read more

Not my idea of a holiday weekend.

Monday, February 16, 2015      2 comments

I've been sick in bed since Friday. So my exercise minutes are zero, possibly fewer, and my calorie count is pretty close to that, too. I'm on the Diluted Gatorade and a Couple Bites of Banana diet. Pretty sure I'll have to call out of work t... Read more

Back to Yoga! Hooray!

Thursday, February 12, 2015      3 comments

Oh. My. Goodness. I went to "all levels" yoga with the Domestic Partner on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. It Kicked My Butt! It felt like it was my first day of yoga. I am going to do my own yoga practice today. It's not going to be "All... Read more

Sparkpeople works!

…when you use it. I have not been measuring, tracking, exercising, or eating for health. And guess what? I gained weight! I'm now almost 40 pounds above my goal--goal being what I weighed in the fall of 2013. That makes me officially ove... Read more

Don't take the bait.

If I lived alone, there would not be cupcakes and ice cream in my house. But I don't live alone; I live with a skinny man. I realize that it is my responsibility to ignore the cupcakes and ice cream. I'm an adult, and I make decisions for mys... Read more

Short-term S.M.A.R.T. goal

Thursday, August 21, 2014      4 comments

I committed to teaching a yoga mini-workshop five weeks from today. Can I lose ten pounds in time for the workshop? Here is my SMART goal analysis: S=specific (ten pounds) M=measurable (I have a scale) A=attainable (2 pounds a week is f... Read more

"The year that we were in shape"

Tuesday, August 19, 2014      2 comments

A few years back, when my youngest daughter lived at home, we committed to our fitness. We started with walking, the same 2-mile route that I walk now, before work every morning and after work every evening, Monday thru Friday. We still call tha... Read more

The last straw!

I had to buy larger pants last weekend. Two sizes larger! Was it fun? Why, no…no it wasn't. Oh well, at least it galvanized me into performing better habits this week. ... Read more

Prioritize--then get it done.

Wednesday, April 23, 2014      3 comments

I have a number of tasks that I do not want to do. They are never as bad as they seem, once I get started. It's just awfully hard to get started. But this is just like my Elliptical Experiment from a few weeks ago. Getting to the elliptical wa... Read more

Sugar Poisoning!

Sunday, April 20, 2014      4 comments

I stopped eating sugar and all other sweeteners five weeks ago. But today, our friends brought us some homemade Easter sweets and I decided to indulge. Big mistake. My heart is racing, I am anxious, hyperventilating, and I feel like I'm goi... Read more

You can't out-train a bad diet.

Saturday, April 12, 2014      1 comments

Not that I'm exactly "training…" Anyway. I formed the morning-walk habit. Yea me! It makes all the difference in the world that it's not, you know, sleeting any more. But. I've only lost ONE of the 21 pounds I gained in 4 months. Time t... Read more

Plans don't get results--actions get results.

Wednesday, April 02, 2014      3 comments

I looooove to plan. I make really great lists and charts and if/then scenarios. I have notebooks and clipboards and stuff on the computer that outlines an idealized fitness protocol. I read and research and I have a clear picture of what a fi... Read more

I want a payoff for my good habits.

Monday, March 31, 2014      5 comments

Dollars would be good. Euros, pounds, whatever. Ha ha ha! Pounds! Get it? The obvious payoff is feeling better, but there is an economic component, too. I have a lot of nice clothing that I am currently unable to wear. When I get back to las... Read more

Over the first hurdle in quitting sugar.

Thursday, March 27, 2014      5 comments

Well, I successfully avoided the desserts at my book club this week! I didn't miss them at all. I had a cup of decaf & to make it a special treat, I had half & half in it, instead of my usual black coffee. And I honestly didn't miss the dessert,... Read more

Maybe "daily elliptical" was a little too ambitious for this time of year, when I am low energy and high stress. I thought it would be an easy week, but it was not. But I am sugar-free, and that was my largest ambition. I intend to keep non-s... Read more
