I feel pretty proud! I went to an after work cocktail party at a friend's. She is a gourmet cook and really puts on a spread - both food and alcoholic beverages. I decided I would plan my strategy, so I called her and asked what she was havin... Read more

Yesterday was very physical. I went swimming in the am. I hadn't been swimming for over a year maybe even 2. I thought I would swim for 20 minutes. However, I felt strong and wasn't winded so I swam for 30 minutes and felt great. The rest o... Read more
Enjoying Exercise?
Friday, August 07, 2009      4 comments

I can't believe that I am starting to enjoy exercise. When I wake up now the first thing I think is "Did I wake up early enough to take a walk with my dog before work?" instead of "Oh, I'm so tired." I look forward to getting on the treadmi... Read more
