My Goal Board Check-In Items
Sunday, March 23, 2014      6 comments

The relatively new feature on our Spark Pages - the Goal Board Check-In - seemed rather trite to me at first. Couldn't see collecting 'points' that had no meaning. (I'm truly not a pointaholic; use that button for points just as a checkmark t... Read more
Water Exercise - worth considering for everyone!
Tuesday, March 11, 2014      8 comments

Many people will say, "oh I can't exercise" or "well, I walk a little bit but can't do much more" and they truly do have physical limitations. Limitations are not roadblocks; we almost always can find detours when it comes to exercise as well a... Read more
Positive and peppy tune
Monday, March 10, 2014      4 comments

I love music. Some people use prerecorded exercise music when exercising, but I would rather pick and choose my own tunes. Am always open to new ideas for anything from slow and relaxing to tempest tempo. ... Read more
Using my down-time
Saturday, March 08, 2014      3 comments

I'm in Day Two of one miserable cold. When I have to relax for health reasons or when in flare I call it 'down time'. That doesn't mean I feel 'down'. It means that I'm not up and active, just taking it easy so that I will be myself aga... Read more
Think Outside the Box for Solutions!
Wednesday, February 26, 2014      7 comments

Sometimes we slip or what we plan is hard because we just do not ENJOY what we plan to do to meet our goals. When staying on track gets hard, it's time to think outside the box. I constantly revitalize this long journey of mine. Otherwis... Read more
Going for my own kind of gold medal
Sunday, February 23, 2014      5 comments

Today I didn't really want to do my usual exercises, but turned on the radio station and got going. Sundays are loaded with lots of peppy oldies and little dialog, so my attitude changed and I loved just plain moving my parts. Then, I to... Read more
Back in Phys Therapy and Pool
Friday, February 21, 2014      3 comments

Went to the Physical Therapy pool yesterday afternoon.... Before going into the pool for the 3x week pool use via a sort of medical exercise-membership (money-saving for people with chronic issues), there was the usual p.t. intake session. So m... Read more
Being 'cableless' has evolved into an exercise routine!
Monday, February 17, 2014      4 comments

Ditching the cable tv has freed my time! Maybe I'll want it back someday, but for now? Nope! I've been LIVING more! And an unexpected bi-product of the switch to whatever comes to me over the airwaves is that using the indoor antenna h... Read more
Pyramid for Success: a SP system resource. Have you seen it?
Saturday, February 15, 2014      4 comments

I often refer to the SP site as a maze... and rightly so: it's huge! Dig into this site through searches on various words and terms, especially using the word 'article' after the word/s searched. You will find things you had not seen before! ... Read more
All movement is exercise
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      6 comments

Refering to 'activity' or 'movement' instead of using the work 'exercise' emphazes that all movement IS exercise. We don't have to plan it, don't have to buy anything to move. And moving our parts is important for health. Never hesitate t... Read more
'Found a Local p.t. pool'!!! plus 'Shoulders Need Exercise, too'!!!

1. MY POOL TIME - resuming near home!! Pool exercise in warm water was my lifeline to normalcy from August, 1994 til September, 2012. If you've known me a while, you've read previous frustrations over losing 'my pool time' when my p.t. d... Read more
Ditch cable? You are kidding, right?!?
Saturday, February 08, 2014      6 comments

Yes! I did it!! For well over 2 months I considered ditching cable tv, going back and forth with thoughts like "I waste so much time watching tv shows that don't even really interest me!" to "...oh, but how I love this and that show/channe... Read more
Music moves me
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      6 comments

Do you use a tape sold with the music already gathered for your walking or exercise? Or do you prefer to assemble your own collections... and then completely rearrange or switch things around so that you listen and think about it first at leisu... Read more
The Price of a T-Shirt
Friday, January 24, 2014      4 comments

We - ah, yes, the generic "we"! - take so much for granted. Even when we try to not do so, this happens. Let's face it, there are so many issuesand concerns in this crazy world that one simply cannot simultaneously dwell on all the importan... Read more
Exercise Talk
Thursday, January 09, 2014      3 comments

I am doing what I can do. And (grrrr...!) that is not nearly what I coul do 1.5 years ago. "Things" keep getting in the way: my physical therapist dying was a biggie, but the fibromyalgia pain (worse now that I don't have pool time 3 days a ... Read more
