But, I've learned a few things this year. Thought I would share them.
Even though I'd desperately ... Read more
I would be honoured if you would clue me in on whatever the big secret to shedding pounds is. Seriously...Because I am baffled.
Thus far, I have done the following, with less than satisfactory results:

New Year - Not so new me ;-)
Its been a long while since I blogged. I fell off the fitness wagon in a big way last year and packed on another 10+ lbs.
This new year, I decided to put *me* first (behind work & family - easier said than done) & get mine arse back to the... Read more
Getting over myself
Thanks to everyone who stopped in yesterday with notes of encouragement. It really does help! No, I'm not sopping...today was cardio/lower body weights. I will keep at it because I have to! I'm finding the more exercise I get, the better I feel... Read more
I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I'm exercising, trying to get enough sleep, eating healthy...salmon last nite, home-made chicken curry with lots of colourful veggies & whole grain rice the nite before and that scale refuses to budge!

I think my scale... Read more

And so it begins…..
It is my intent to post a weekly agenda...followed by a review of achievements met/not met. With any luck at all, this will keep me accountable.
This week I will:
* Start the patch on Monday morning in another attempt to quit smok... Read more
I did go to the gym on Tuesday :-) Did 40 minutes of cardio followed by lower body weights. Had to push myself to go but I am glad I did! I haven't smoked either! :-) Feeling a bit dizzy...experience (with quitting) has taught me that is due... Read more
An ambitious undertaking
Been to the gym a few times over the last week…its a great stress buster…and as I am trying to quit smoking (yet again!), stress has been a factor. Yes, even with the patch, behaviour & desire remain. The task is to find other things to when I... Read more
No baby steps...more like a giant leap! Went to the gym, 30 minutes of EFX followed by upper body & abs weight regime, then a few laps in the pool. Topped off, of course, with a deliciously hot bake in the sauna. I do love that sauna! Cardio... Read more
Return of the wayward Nana
