Little by Little, Bit by Bit

Wednesday, September 19, 2012      9 comments

Yesterday at weigh in, I finally broke a plateau [my weight had even started to creep up]! That was great to go down--in the correct direction. Sometimes I get impatient with my body holding on to all this weight that I don't really want. I'm do... Read more

These Sandals Are Made for Walking!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      6 comments

Went for a walk this morning while it was still cool. There is a trick to that, because we have been having record high heat and unusually warm weather here. Also, I was up later than usual, so slept a bit later. But I felt good and my litt... Read more

In the Cool of the Morning

Sunday, September 16, 2012      11 comments

After record heat for the past two days, I woke up to a cloudy, cool morning. Hooray! I put on my shorts and took a walk before I did anything else. Wanted to enjoy the good weather and a bit of exercise. Well, my shorts, which fit me fine ... Read more

Toxic Friends

Saturday, September 15, 2012      12 comments

A 'friend' of mine touched my cheek this morning and gravely said, "Don't lose any more weight. Your face looks so thin!" What a joke! I'm still over 200 pounds which isn't a healthy body weight unless you are over 7 feet tall [I'm not]. An... Read more

Hooray for the Weekend!

Friday, September 14, 2012      7 comments

Sometimes I need a weekend to rest up from my week. Sometimes I need a week to rest up from my weekend. Don't know why this is. I'm going to work this weekend on making good food choices, protecting myself from people who emotionally sabota... Read more

It takes us a long time to get fat and so it takes a long time to get fit. I'm kind of glad that this is true. When I stumble and eat something fattening just once, it won't have that great an effect. But if I do it daily, it will. Same is true ... Read more

Knees Screaming

Wednesday, September 12, 2012      8 comments

I woke up with my knees screaming with the dull pain of arthritis. If you have it, you know what I mean. Now I usually go to bed with that pain, but after a good night's sleep and rest I wake up with no pain. Yesterday's visit to the eye do... Read more

The Benefits of Resting

Monday, September 10, 2012      7 comments

Headed out a bit late for my bike ride this morning, but I could feel on the first hill the evidence of a day of rest. On day 6 of exercising daily the hill was pretty challenging. Today it was easy. Nice to know that my body responds when I do ... Read more

Ahhh! Sweet Day of Rest!

Sunday, September 09, 2012      9 comments

Even though some info encourages exercising every day, I try to follow the SP article that suggested a day of rest once a week. And Sunday is it! Hooray!! True, I took a quick walk around the block this morning while it was still cool to st... Read more

Upset But Rode It Out

Saturday, September 08, 2012      11 comments

I was drafted by a friend to help serve food at a party for a friend of a friend. I just wanted to help my friend out. I really try to stay out of the kitchen, because the less time I spend there, the better my fitness is. So the tech-guy c... Read more

I Didn't Want to Do It

Friday, September 07, 2012      18 comments

I was out late [for me] last night and I really didn't want to get up this morning. Nothing special I had to do, but it is so hot that if I don't get my cardio in early, I'm likely to let it slide. So I got up anyway, arguing with myself all the... Read more

Back in the Saddle Again!

Thursday, September 06, 2012      9 comments

No, not a horse saddle. Just back on my bike. I felt kind of blah Monday-Wednesday this week, grumpy and down, and I finally realized that I had a stomach bug. So I decided to take it easy yesterday--a second rest day this week. So, this m... Read more

The Real Tomato Thing

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      9 comments

You SP whippersnappers need to get in touch with more old people. Or watch more vintage TV shows. Some time ago I sent some friends a tomato. I'm still getting questions. Don't you guys know how to google? Read more

Insulted by My Desk Chair

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      12 comments

Okay, maybe I have needed a bit of motivation lately. Yesterday my hydraulic desk chair started to sink on me. This chair has an easy-to-adjust lever under the seat to raise or lower the seat to the right level quickly. It does this by letting i... Read more

No More Boring Parties!!

Monday, September 03, 2012      8 comments

I was invited to a bi-annual barbecue yesterday, held by a good friend. I love my friend, but I hate her parties [I hate most parties]. We go back as far as junior high school, so we have known each other for a long time. But she has many intere... Read more
