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

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

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

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
