Confession time!!!

Sunday, April 03, 2011      10 comments

So I haven't made a blog post in a while. I guess it is mainly because I haven't been doing as well as I was doing last year. It is now confession time. I have gained over 10 lbs and have not changed my weight on the site due to embarrassment... Read more

Overwhelmed-but still on track

Monday, January 24, 2011      5 comments

In November, I went from being unemployed to working 8-10 hours a day - 7 days a week. This is only a "temporary" project that I am doing but my life as a fitness trainer has been totally put on hold. I've noticed that the harder I work, the m... Read more

Goal

Wednesday, November 10, 2010      3 comments

I can't believe that I did not blog about hitting my goal. I guess I must have just posted on Facebook. Anyway, not only did I hit 3000 miles for the year on October 27th, I added almost another 200 miles since then. I am on my way to my next ... Read more

Going for the goal!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010      4 comments

So it looks like I will hit my 3000 mile goal for 2010 after all. I really thought I wouldn't make it because of the broken arm. I'm feeling so much better and really wanted to get back on the bike. Anyway, against all odds (and doctor's orde... Read more

Back on the bike - again.

Tuesday, October 12, 2010      2 comments

OK so I got back on the bike this week and have gone another 88 miles in 3 days. I haven't got an official doctor release yet but I am feeling so much better and the cycling does not hurt my arm at all. I'm being very careful and have limited ... Read more

Food and Family

Tuesday, October 05, 2010      5 comments

I just got back from a family reunion with my 4 siblings and dozens of aunts, uncles, cousins and their families. We have not been all together for 5 years. We had a great time but I cannot believe how much attention was spent on food consumpt... Read more

Following Doctor's orders

Thursday, September 23, 2010      4 comments

I will admit that I have always been a rebel. I don't like being told what to do and usually find a way to do things my way. Today I had my surgery follow up visit with the doctor and he told me that although I was healing, he still doesn't wa... Read more

Goal or not to goal.

I broke my arm riding my bike on August 2nd. My doctor told me that I would not be able to ride again until next year. But my goal is to ride 3000 miles by the end of 2010. Against doctor's orders, I got back on the bike and have added 286 mi... Read more

Against all odds

Monday, September 06, 2010      10 comments

Exactly 5 weeks ago, I fell off my bike on a ride and ended up in the emergency room at Saint Mary's Hospital in Reno. I shattered my left arm and had road rash all over my body. After spending 3 days in the hospital, I had surgery on my arm a... Read more

59 and counting

Sunday, August 29, 2010      10 comments

Friday, I turned 59 years young. Really I feel like I keep getting younger. Losing all the weight and keeping fit has made a huge difference in my life. Even with my broken arm, I feel great. It has been almost 4 weeks since the bike accident... Read more

Keeping on Track

Tuesday, August 24, 2010      6 comments

I've noticed that sometimes I use my broken arm as an excuse to not keep up with my food and exercise log. I am still eating really healthy and manage to exercise in some form for at least an hour a day but I'm not tracking everything. I reall... Read more

Change is sometimes necessary

Monday, August 16, 2010      8 comments

My original goal for the year was to ride my bike 3000 miles. By the end of July I had already gone almost 2200 miles so I decided to change the goal to hit my 3000 miles by the end of August. The date of my accident was August 2. My left arm... Read more

Back to work

Thursday, August 12, 2010      3 comments

Today was my first time back at the gym. It was great to see my friends. I did 15 minutes on the elliptical and one hour on the treadmill. The surgery on my arm was a week ago today and although there is still quite a bit of pain, I think I a... Read more

If I can do it, anyone can! I lost 55 lbs in the past year and have managed to keep it off by eating healthy and exercising. I am now a personal trainer. Last week I fell off my bike trying to reach my goal of riding 3000 miles in 2010. My a... Read more
