Not in the physcial space kind of move, but move my body! If I don't get moving I am never going to hit my goal. I am already seriously behind and am going to have lots of catching up to do.
I worked out at the gym on lunch break today an... Read more
I am "borrowing" this idea from my friend, Cindy. As we all know, putting goals in writing somehow cements them and makes them more attainable.
Goal #1: Hit my 1,000 Fitness Minutes this month. Which means . . .
Goal #2: Average 35 m... Read more
Although I am not up to my pre-injury (last April) monthly fitness minutes, I am getting closer! I had been reaching 1,000 fitness minutes each month and was slowly not achieving that when I injured my hip/leg/back last Spring. Last month I hi... Read more
This week is insanely busy for me. It started yesterday with purse party. Tomorrow night is the theater to see Peter Pan, Thursday night is a concert, Saturday is a wedding and Sunday we leave for Atlantic City -- oh and I need to study in be... Read more
This weight thing has been creeping up on me for a long time now and I kind of ignored it. I have clothes that fit, although not as well as they used to, so I was in a state of denial. I am going to a conference for work in a few weeks and nee... Read more

The heat and humity was very high so I d... Read more
I survived the famiy reunion! I did pretty good sticking to my plan. I even made this "elvis presley cake" which my daughter-in-law said was a "diabetic disaster" because of all the sugar in it -- and I only had one piece! I managed to make g... Read more
We have a family reunion today and I have a plan -- I am starting off with a healthy breakfast consisting of a "baggie omlet" (Egg beaters/milk/cheese/mushrooms) cooked in a baggie in boiling water so there is no fat/grease. I am going to fill ... Read more
I am not having a good day - I tried on three pair of pants this morning before I found one that was acceptable for work -- and they are tighter than I like.
I know this is a slow process coupled with the fact that I have not been able to m... Read more
Today I am reminded that slow and steady wins the race. I am still recovering from my hip injury and unable to exercise to the extent I was, but I am making progress and that is all that counts at this point.
Baby steps forward are cert... Read more
Today's lesson on Trivia: Read the entire question AND look at where the "true" and "false" buttons are!!!! I messed up two questions that I knew the answer to, but did not pay enough attention and hit the wrong answer. Darn!
When I was on here before I hurt my hip, I played the trivia almost everyday and had overall rating was slowly but surely moving up. Now that I am back, I tried it again and only got 43% today! Read more
After hurting my hip exercising in April, I want to get back into the Sparkpeople mode again. I have been going to physical therapy three times a week and am now up to 10 minutes on the stationary bike. I am also now allowed to walk my regular... Read more
