Short Pilates Blog
Friday, December 30, 2011      8 comments

After my half hour on the elliptical, a pilates class was starting at the Y. So I joined in. There was only one exercise that hurt my lower back, so I didn't do that one. The hour and a quarter went fast. It challenged some muscles but was also ... Read more
Need A Commentator?
Thursday, December 29, 2011      8 comments

Years ago I listened to political speeches and figured out what was significant, what I agreed with, what I didn't agree with, etc. I made my own opinions on who to vote for. Then I got used to the analysts and commentators. Often I don't even f... Read more
Aha...
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      11 comments

I was asked on a message board what the biggest "Aha" I've had since starting maintenance. I didn't have to think about it any time at all. My biggest surprise is that I can live at the weight I've wanted to be since I was a teen and be no hungr... Read more

I walked and then ran a little outside, but it started raining. Then I came in and did 5.3 miles on the treadmill using Galloway - run four minutes/walk one minute. Gwen was napping; Old Dad was home. I'm pretty sure that I can do 6.1 mile... Read more

Refusing to Stress
Friday, December 23, 2011      8 comments

No, I haven't done everything I intended. I've wrapped some presents and my turkey is thawing in the refrig. I've purchased most of the things we need for Christmas dinner and all the presents I'm going to buy. I'm going grocery shopping tomorro... Read more
Stronger Than Fudge
Thursday, December 22, 2011      13 comments

My family asked for my famous fudge, which I don't think I made last year nor the year before because I was concentrating on keeping off my 80+ pound loss. But today I felt I could do it. So I drank some sugar free hot chocolate to quench my cho... Read more
Time Flies
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      7 comments

Today, when I was done with my 45 minute elliptical and my strength training workouts at the Y, I went to pick up Gwen from the nursery. To my surprise she was not in the infant area. She was out walking and playing with the big kids (up to 5 ye... Read more
Grapefruit Treats

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
