The Best of Slenderella, 2011
Thursday, December 15, 2011      11 comments

Rereading my blogs from this year has been a good review for me. Indulge me, but I intend to re-post one or two. The following blog received the most comments and probably the most positive comments of any I posted this year. Thanks, SparkFriend... Read more
One Small Sign
Wednesday, December 14, 2011      10 comments

One small sign of my change to a healthy lifestyle is the way I measure oil. Used to be whenever I measured I held the spoon or measuring cup over the bowl of ingredients. If a drop spilled it would go into the bowl. Now I hold it over the count... Read more
My Computer's Back, But I'm Doing Better Than It Is
Tuesday, December 13, 2011      5 comments

Computer: My laptop is back home. When it went to the shop it would not turn on at all. Although it still has a quirky little problem, I can work around it. Based on what the repair man said, sounds like a costly repair would not be worth it. ... Read more
Celebration of Health
Saturday, December 03, 2011      12 comments

Natalie (4 years old): She's out of the cast and healing well, but for two weeks she is suppose to be very careful. No playing ball as it jostles the arm, no running, no jumping on the bed, etc. She goes back to the pediatric orthopedist at the ... Read more

Getting It Back -- Again
Monday, November 28, 2011      9 comments

I ran for 20 minutes of my 60 minute treadmill workout today, mostly in one minute intervals. I finished 4.75 miles and felt great. Beforehand I wasn't sure my back was up to it, but no problem during and none for the almost 9 hours since. It is... Read more
Third Thanksgiving That Counts
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      15 comments

This is my third Thanksgiving living in my goal weight range. Each year I have been sincerely thankful to weigh a normal weight after 5 decades of being overweight and obese. This year I feel even more thankful because I finally believe that I w... Read more
Estimate It and Go On
Sunday, November 20, 2011      12 comments

I've found that for me one good way to handle those potluck dinners and parties where I eat a bit of this and a bite of that is to honestly pay attention to what I'm eating, track it as best I can, and go on. Of course I make the best choices I ... Read more
Quitting is Not An Option
Tuesday, November 15, 2011      17 comments

Quite a while back, maybe a year and a half ago, my Weight Watcher leader handed out stickers. They have her face printed on them with the slogan, "Quitting is Not An Option." She told us to put it some place we would see it frequently. I put mi... Read more
Role Model
Sunday, November 13, 2011      12 comments

Yesterday when we were done with lunch Natalie, 4 years old, asked me for a piece of paper, a pen, a can of black beans, the container of blueberries, and several other food items. I wondered what she was going to do. Then I saw her copy the wor... Read more
Repetition
Friday, November 11, 2011      8 comments

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

Things on my mind today: My daughter and son-in-law are now homeowners!! I am so happy for them. Natalie's arm is healing well. She was in her first red cast 2 weeks and now is to be in this purple cast for 3 weeks. I enjoyed a go... Read more
