Taking A Day Or 2 Of Rest Makes A Big Difference
Monday, March 04, 2013      6 comments

Taking a day or two off from my usual exercise routine made a huge difference! I couldn't believe all of the energy that I had this morning because I rested over the weekend. By rested, I don't mean that I was a couch potato. I scaled back my... Read more
It Is So Hard To Slow Down
Saturday, March 02, 2013      5 comments

I encountered something today that I'm sure I will fight with during the weeks to come. I forced myself to take a "rest" day from my usual vigorous stationary bike riding. Instead, hubby and I went to the Bloomin Arts Festival and walked aroun... Read more

I'm in preparation mode these days. I have about 13 days before my shoulder surgery and there are many things to do. The primary thing that I would like to complete is making frozen meals for hubby and me. I try to stay away from processed fo... Read more
Surgery For My Shoulder

I saw my orthopedist yesterday for a follow-up on the MRI that I had 2 weeks ago. I actually received the report and the CD of the actual MRI last Saturday but I wasn't clear as to what the actual diagnosis would be. There was a lot of medical... Read more
Breaking Bread Without Breaking My Eating Plan
Saturday, February 23, 2013      4 comments

It Was So Chilly At The Gym That.....
Monday, February 18, 2013      8 comments

It was so chilly at the gym today that when I road the bike for 2 hours, I wasn't sweaty. Normally when I ride for a little over 60 minutes I'm drenched but not today. The air was so dry that my sweat band was barely moist. My guess is that m... Read more

Sunday, February 17, 2013      9 comments

Four years ago, I bought two nice pairs of jeans. I weighed about 5 pounds less than I do right now. The jeans were snug when I first put them on, but loosened a little bit once I had them on for a while. Well, this morning I put the jeans on... Read more

Saturday, February 16, 2013      7 comments

Sometimes I become so fixated on the number on the scale that I forget it is only one measure of my progress. This week, for example, I had a 1.2 pound increase when I weighed in at Weight Watchers. I was disappointed but I knew that I had cha... Read more
