Scythe and systema
I am chucking my weed whackers and selling my two small mowers. A long time ago I used a scythe. Remember the Grim Reaper pictures? Well, one time 3100 miles away I was surprised by something, sliced open my leg and had to sew myself up becau... Read more
I ordered a new toy! Whoopee!
Now I just have to wait for it. And wait. And wait. I am like a 4 year old kid.
I stayed up until 1am 2 nights ago looking at treadmills because my old cheap one is a piece of junk and I can't do anything on it but walk - and even that... Read more
Even my dogs gained weight.
Now that is pathetic. Solly, the standard, was 65 and now he is 79 pounds. He was always a little tall for a poodle, but I need to face facts... I stopped walking and running, and so did he. The Boston died (unrelated to my departure from Spar... Read more
I'm back again. I don't have any grand ideas of checking in daily, counting every calorie and joining ten groups for motivation and fun, since I know I can't possibly afford the time to do that. However, I need the idea in the back of my head ... Read more
Love, Honor and Obey (?!?)
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
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
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!
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
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!
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
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
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
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
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
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
