Love, Honor and Obey (?!?)

Monday, November 04, 2013      13 comments

BLC has weekend challenges. This weekend includes a requirement to exercise in a silly manner. Here's my silliness. I had TWO dreams last night in which my standard poodle, Solly, took his usual minute or two to finish inspecting ... Read more

Scaring the Pesky Salespeople

Saturday, October 26, 2013      15 comments

Today my husband and I went to a new Sports Authority that opened in our rather underpopulated county. We were surprised it was even built since we already have another sports store. A tall young brunette swooped on us before we got 3 feet in ... Read more

Within my control

Friday, October 25, 2013      11 comments

I spent 4 days heading out of town, being out of town and coming back to town with my mother in order to visit her terminally ill sister. I did a lot of thinking on this trip. My mother recently confided to me that she did not marry well i... Read more

BLC23 Goals - No More Fat Magic Tricks!

Wednesday, September 25, 2013      5 comments

When I joined BLC22 I had grand ideas of losing 2 pounds a week, which just didn't happen. I did also plan to even out my arm strength, which did. For those who don't know me, I have disc damage, which causes nerve compression. I modify a l... Read more

Visit to Ortho / Peroneal tendonitis

Saturday, September 21, 2013      8 comments

I've been eating up running books like they are candy. Why? I suppose because I was born broken and became broken-er and never really liked exercising before. Then I found running. I am still broken. But I am motivated to overcome the issue... Read more

97.2% certain we are switching gyms!

Thursday, September 05, 2013      7 comments

Yes!!! (-ish) The new gym is MUCH smaller and more crowded, especially during classes. Unlike our current gym, it does not have a pool, but we've never used that, anyway. I've always intended to, but I've always felt like I was in a hurr... Read more

End of BLC22 tomorrow

Tuesday, August 27, 2013      3 comments

I weigh in officially tomorrow, but I sneaked a peak at my scale and also measured myself already. I began at 158.8. I am now exactly 154.8. Four pounds is not very awe-inspiring weight loss for 12 weeks! However, I have lost 4.75" dur... Read more

How a blind man sees my weight loss

Thursday, August 22, 2013      14 comments

I have a legally blind client whose macular degeneration has completely clouded one eye and left him only a slit in the other. His dog goes more nuts when she hears my car come in the driveway than when anyone else's car arrives, so he knows who... Read more

Week 8 BLC Assignment - Valentine's Day in July

Monday, July 29, 2013      10 comments

This week is a Valentine's Day to oneself challenge and I have not done well at it. I don't even do Valentine's Day well for other people. Although I am very good at loving spontaneously, I am terrible at loving well on command. (I am also ba... Read more

Lighthouse and Lake 5k

Monday, July 22, 2013      9 comments

Yesterday I came home from a camping trip that included a technical trail run. It was difficult but very exciting and I'd like to do it again, but without the asthma. Here's a good idea of how I performed: right in the middle of the pac... Read more

BLC 6 week reflection

Thursday, July 18, 2013      4 comments

This week we have an assignment to reflect on the first half our BLC round. First about the BLC itself: I have to say that I am very pleased with the BLC itself, even though it is time consuming. I have done nearly 100% of every exercise... Read more

Polar Heart Rate Monitor and Foot Pod

Wednesday, July 17, 2013      5 comments

My husband got me a Polar 3 piece set. He had a Garmin and a long time ago I tried on the chest strap and hated it because it was so plasticky. When I started wondering if my heart rate was as good as the monitors I used after exercising made ... Read more

Overcoming mental barriers

Tuesday, July 02, 2013      10 comments

My Spark friend Owl 20 posted a blog called "A Body on the Couch Wants to Stay There" and her pride at overcoming lack of motivation reminded of how I felt during my 5k Your Way program. About half of my runs were reasonably good, predict... Read more

Indecisive or Savvy?

Sunday, June 30, 2013      8 comments

Within my BLC group, there is a little discussion about being able to make decisions, with some people maybe being envious of people who can make decisions quickly and seemingly easily. I am not so sure that quick decision making is always ... Read more

Volunteering to be Weighed in Public

Friday, June 28, 2013      13 comments

I am taking a CNA class. It's regressive schooling for an anatomy tutor and home health and hospice aide, but I found out it will shave 6 months off my internship time when I am in my nursing home administration program. The teachers, bo... Read more
