I had been doing very well, getting out and moving more. Guess I overdid it -- seems I have some cartilage issues in my right leg. Though it felt pretty good this morning, but when I tried to put my shoes on, I was reminded rather quickly th... Read more
Birthday Coming Up!
I will be 51 on October 12th, and my goal is to lose 15 lbs by then. It may seem unreasonable to some (or most), but that is what I would like. I would be happy with 10 lbs lost, but my ultimate goal is 15 lbs.
Although the ticker on th... Read more
Yesterday was the kids' first full day of summer vacation, so I took them and a couple of friends to the beach for the day! They had a great time, and laughed and had fun and played hard!
Today, we head back to the cottage for a week of re... Read more
Weight is Going Up!?
I am seriously frustrated! I have my Spark Activity Tracker and have been mostly hell-bent on getting my 10,00+ steps. I have started, albeit slowly, the jogging/walking program, and I try to watch what I eat!
I know this last one is th... Read more
My Kids are BORED!
Every day I listen to my kids complain about being bored. They have bikes, scooters, SHOES, LEGS, IMAGINATIONS, but they are bored!
I have offered them jobs to do, but they don't want to do those. One is on the X-Box (again). The blackfl... Read more
Learning to Run
I joined the Walk/Jog a 5K plan. I know, I am more of an avid walker, but everything and a lot of people swear by running, so I thought I would give it a shot. I am still on my first week of this new plan, so not a lot different from my walkin... Read more
A Really Bad Day Yesterday!
Yesterday was just a bummer day!
It was raining -- hard -- when I woke up at 4:00, so I thought I would just stay in bed that extra half hour instead of going for a walk. But I have that Spark Activity Tracker and it makes me so compet... Read more
Okay, I am really ticked off now!
I let my son download a game on my computer, and it overrode my Spark Tracker somehow!~ I lost the steps I took on a 3 mile walk! Outraged!
Can't blame my kid -- he didn't know. Won't happen again... Read more
Spark Activity Tracker
Okay, if you had doubts about buying one of these things, throw them away! I have had mine for almost a week now, and I absolutely ADORE it!!! It lights up! So cool!
I have a wee bit of a competitive edge (my sisters would laugh at that ... Read more
Hike for Hospice in Belleville ON Canada
Well, in Belleville ON Canada, it is dreary, cold and very windy. The only thing the day is lacking is rain, and even then it feels so cold that it may very well turn to snow!! Probably not, but it sure feels cold!
Today was our Hike for ... Read more
Don't know what to call this blog, so I am leaving it untitled for now.
When you have kids in school, they catch stuff. Both of my boys and I have been down-and-out sick for the past couple of days. I tried to work through it the first da... Read more
10 Lbs at a Time
I have been with SparkPeople for a very long time now, and haven't really tried all that hard. I have maintained the 22-lb weight loss, but haven't surpassed it. That is because I really hadn't set my mind to it.
Look out world! Here I c... Read more
Oh What a Feeling!!!
I just have to add on to my blog from yesterday! It felt so great to get that workout in "after" work!
The kids noticed that I was in a much better mood. I was happier, they were happier. We had supper made and finished, dishes washed, d... Read more
I have been feeling really guilty about not getting much exercise in, so I purchased the Hip Hop Abs CDs about 2 weeks ago. It was my intention to do the exercises early in the morning and start the day out right! Our house is old, and my chil... Read more
It Has Been A While
I last blogged in November of 2013. Wow! It has been a bit of time, but I am feeling my way back.
Harley, my big adorable 4-legged walking companion and major poop machine, passed away in January after becoming quite ill around the middle... Read more
