Level 11
Wednesday, May 30, 2012     

I just hit Level 11! WooHoo! Now it will be a rather long grind until I reach the next level. I figure if I earn 30 points a day it will take about 5 1/2 months to get there. That's a long time. I hope to hit that by Dec 1. At that point I... Read more

I reached my goal of getting to Level 10 by May 1; in fact, I think it was a bit earlier than that but I don't remember exactly when I did hit it. If anyone knows how to go back and see that let me know. And, now I'm about to hit Level 11 in t... Read more

New Trophy!
Thursday, May 27, 2010     

I finally reached the next level! I'm so happy! I've been fairly diligent; have had many ups and downs and still find myself learning about making the better choice. Old habits are really hard to change! My biggest food challenge is to begin... Read more
Back from a long winter's inactivity
Thursday, March 04, 2010     

Today is the first day I felt like I could get outside again for my run. It wasn't pretty, I lost alot of speed over the winter but, as I was going along I knew I was starting out this season in a much better place than I did last spring. I'm ... Read more
Keep On Walking!
Thursday, September 03, 2009     

The weatherhas been SO picture perfect lately that I've been doing all my workouts as walk/run outside instead of doing some swimming inside. (There will be plenty of time for that in the winter months.) And, I'm feeling really good during my... Read more

Here is what's been working for me: each day, each workout I concentrate on what I can do to get down to that next pound. That's right, it's one pound at a time. I'm trying to lose one pound a week so that number stays with me for a few days ... Read more
Weekly Achievements
Saturday, August 08, 2009     

Although I could have done better managing my nutrition, I did make noticeable improvements in fitness. I walked 4 miles with a friend in just over an hour. My previous longest walk was about 3 1/4 miles. Also, as I walked tonight (by myself,... Read more
Back on Track
Thursday, July 30, 2009     

So I went out with a girlfriend tonight after work for dinner and a beer. It was just what I needed. I was in a funk this week, not enjoying myself, feeling tired, bored, guilty about not wanting to go out and exercise and spending too much ti... Read more
Other Forms of Exercise-Mixing it Up
Wednesday, July 29, 2009     

Since the pool I go to is closed for two weeks, I had to choose some other activities. So far, I have continued to go for walk/jogs and have also used a cardio DVD by Leslie Sansone. I enjoyed that and it should help me improve jogging also. ... Read more
Pool Closed!
Monday, July 27, 2009     

Oh, no! The pool I go to is closed for TWO WEEKS for its annual cleaning. I am going to have to be SO careful with my calorie intake without the benefit of being able to burn it off at the pool. And, I could have gone 3x this week with my wor... Read more
Saturday, July 18, 2009     

Boy, do I know how to make things more difficult for myself or what? Yesterday, I screwed with my workout schedule and ended up shorting myself. I sabotaged my efforts by rescheduling my exercise when I didn't need to and ended up with a shor... Read more
Added Strength and Stretching
Wednesday, July 15, 2009     

Ok, I admit it; I'm a stubborn one. I thought I could do the strength training on my own but, it never got done. Days came and went and I found one excuse after another NOT to do it. So, today, a friend of mine reached her first milestone of ... Read more
One Month Anniversary
Thursday, July 09, 2009     

Well, I'm one month in and I can't believe all the stuff I'm learning. I thought I ate well because when I cook I cook from scratch. But, my portions were too large and I ate too much other stuff that was "not on the menu". I've never counted... Read more
