Perhaps my SparkFriends are tired of reading repetitively that I'm building back up to my speed, endurance, and strength following illness. Seems like I've just had one cold after another. But I do think there is an important principle here. Do ... Read more

WalkOut Review

Thursday, November 10, 2011      4 comments

Exercise TV has changed their offerings. If you are a "glass half full" exerciser, it gives you a chance to try some new workouts. Today I tried Jane Fonda's PrimeTime WalkOut. (I ran yesterday and only run every other day.) I enjoyed the new Wa... Read more

Stepping Up the Workout

Wednesday, November 09, 2011      7 comments

I did 50 minutes on the treadmill with 10 intervals of 4 minutes of running. I told myself I only had to go 5 mph if that is what I felt like, but I probably averaged 6.5 mph. One minute I managed 7.5mph, but I'm not able to sustain that for lon... Read more

Scale Crazy

Saturday, November 05, 2011      9 comments

Overall, I'm doing a great job with my fitness program. I've now been a healthy BMI for 33 months. I've reduced my goal weight officially at Weight Watchers twice and I'm well below that weight now, too. BUT I still haven't gotten used to the we... Read more

Local SparkTeam Dinner

Thursday, November 03, 2011      14 comments

I thought I'd be late and maybe even really, really late. But my daughter's second job didn't need her this evening, and then she got off a little early from her full time job. So I was right on time to our local SparkTeam dinner. There we... Read more

I meant to post this picture yesterday, but time got away from me: My two ladybugs enjoyed Halloween. We've got an awful lot of chocolate candy left over -- you know, ... Read more

October Update

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      7 comments

I wish I could tell you that in October I ran my fastest mile or my longest distance. I wish I could say I tried a new form of exercise or another piece of equipment. I wish I could say I did my longest plank or the most push ups ever. But Octo... Read more

Technical Problem

Sunday, October 30, 2011      8 comments

SparkPeople site is working just fine for me except for the dailySpark. When I try to read those blogs, my computer hangs up and I have to reboot. Sometimes I get a warning about scripts, sometimes not. Anyone else having this problem? It has be... Read more

Challenge To Do, But Not Overdo

Thursday, October 27, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday I did a half hour walking workout, then took both kids for a stroller ride including up a hill, and after the kids went home -- after supper but earlier than usual -- I inflated my tires and rode my bike. So I worked out about 55 minut... Read more

Fitness Plans and Hopes

Tuesday, October 25, 2011      9 comments

The DailySpark has a good blog today about starting over to get in shape. The writer just delivered her third child. My five week cold definitely does not equate to even one pregnancy, but I feel a kindred spirit in trying to get motivated to ge... Read more

Recovery Underway

Monday, October 24, 2011      12 comments

My cough has finally gone away after 5 weeks of hacking! Yesterday I went to the gym and did a little over a half hour on the elliptical. I didn't push it and I could tell I'm not at the same level I was before I got sick. But I haven't lost a g... Read more
