Over 7300 steps today and over 30 minutes of exercise. I didn't eat enough today--or drink enough water but that is so rare I'm not going to be concerned about it. It was a good day. I got to spend a few minutes with people I cherish. I want... Read more

Almost Friday

Thursday, February 26, 2015      2 comments

I have settled into a routine, using my morning break for exercise, staying within calorie range (most of the time), making healthier choices but still allowing myself a smidge of those things that aren't so nutritionally sound. I've even start... Read more

Back at it

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      2 comments

Back to work this week and almost let the demands of getting caught up from being on vacation get the better of me. My staff is great and they know I need time to get back up to speed so they mostly left me alone. I did manage to take a break ... Read more

Excited and proud

Saturday, February 21, 2015      4 comments

I was very excited to see progress on the scale this morning, even with eating out once this week. I did my exercise already today. It does seem to work better for me to split it into two sessions. I'm learning to listen to my body and that i... Read more

Day of Rest

Saturday, February 21, 2015      2 comments

I had to let my muscles rest today though I did do a great deal of up and down activity with cleaning and organizing my craft room and living room. I didn't wear my tracker today either. Tomorrow--I will get my exercise in. I'm very proud of ... Read more

Day 2 of 1200 minute challenge and 865 days unti retirement

Friday, February 20, 2015      0 comments

I must admit I was a little sore from the treadmill yesterday and not really wanting to hop on the beast again. However, I want to complete the challenge and burn calories. We went out to dinner last night and couldn't be sure about the calori... Read more

1200 minute challenge

Thursday, February 19, 2015      0 comments

The 1200 minutes of exercise challenge at work has begun. The goal is to get 1200 minutes of exercise in the next 8 weeks. It has to be aerobic so that comes to 30 minutes, 5 times a week. This is a bit of a challenge for me since I only rece... Read more

Very relaxing day

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      2 comments

It was so nice to be able to just relax today. The sunrise was beautiful this morning. I started with Tai Chi, did a little shopping, filed the income taxes and then went for a walk. The rest of the day was spent with my son and husband jus... Read more

Taste of Retirement

Tuesday, February 17, 2015      7 comments

868 days until retirement. I am starting to see what it would be like to be home every day with my hubby. I've got to imagine that the kid is out on his own. Sometimes I think it would be wonderful and sometimes I think...what if I do get bor... Read more

And so begins my latest staycation. A whole week off from work and lots of plans. Mostly, I don't want to get out of the habit of walking even though my treadmill isn't as good as the one at work. At least at home, I can vary my workout more ... Read more

Happy Valentine's Day

Sunday, February 15, 2015      1 comments

Hubby and I are very low key--exchange cards and he gets me flowers. He is so good to me every day, making the coffee every morning, cooking dinner, taking the mail out, checking my tire pressure, turning on my blanket so I get into a warm bed,... Read more

Another TGIF

Saturday, February 14, 2015      0 comments

It was a rough week and I'm afraid I allowed myself to wallow in my misery a bit. I had to fire someone yesterday and it is never fun. But, no matter how hard it was for me, the person being fired definitely had it much worse. Even though I k... Read more

Blew it

Thursday, February 12, 2015      4 comments

In some ways I really blew it today. It is hubby's bday and of course, he got to choose dinner which was pizza. And, of course, I had sort of scrimped on the calories up until dinner time so then I was really hungry and 3 pieces of pizza later... Read more

Mental strain

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      1 comments

There is so much going on at work right now. I am just trying to keep my head above water. So many new processes and programs and demands that I barely have time to breathe. At home, at least hubby didn't make a rice/pasta/potato side dish to... Read more

Time Flies

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      2 comments

The weekend was too short. I'm still sore from the push-ups. I did notice that a 20 minute walk at 3 mph isn't terribly strenuous any more. Gonna have to up the incline or increase the speed. I just can't seem to drink enough water--3-4 glas... Read more
