I learned some things today at my appointment with the Director of the Health and Wellness Division of our YMCA. But most of all it was an affirming experience. The Director determined that my body fat percentage is 26.7%, which he conside... Read more

Black Leather Coat
Monday, December 13, 2010      10 comments

My mom bought a black leather coat with a fitted waist as motivation to lose weight. She never fit into it, so she gave it to my daughter when she was in high school. Last year I was excited to fit into it, even though it was a little snug. This... Read more
The Rip Cord

Well, I tried my treadmill workout with the safety cord attached today and it was frustrating. Three times the cord pulled out and stopped the treadmill abruptly. That is a jolt! It also means I lose all the data on my workout. However, I was us... Read more

Enjoyed the hike at Mary Holland Park in Bartow this morning. It was foggy and cool, but once we got started not too bad. I had heard of geo caching before, but today I got to see it. People with hand held GPS devices searched for coordinates. T... Read more

I really took advantage of free fruit this week in more ways than one. I went and harvested a whole bunch of grapefruits from the tree at my daughter's house. She and her family don't like them, but to me they are absolutely delicious and so muc... Read more

I'm fighting that little negative voice that says, "See there. You are a klutz. You always were. It doesn't matter if you are 212 or 128 pounds, you will always be an awkward klutz." Go away detracting voice!! I know Grace is not my middle name... Read more

Cooler Weather Brings an Unexpected Challenge
Friday, December 03, 2010      11 comments

For months I have given hardly a thought to making the goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. When it is hot and when I am working out I just automatically drink far more water than that. But this week the temperature has plummeted. I ... Read more
