Monday, December 21, 2009      3 comments

I started numbering this blog to motivate myself to get past this plateau. I am not doing what I need to do to lose more weight. What will it take me to get off my butt? pesha... Read more
Day 37 - Good aerobic exercise
Sunday, December 20, 2009      0 comments

Shoveling snow and walking in the snow - that does it for today's aerobic exercise more than I've done in a long time - since my back got bad. I have PT in the morning and I've decided to walk over because when I was out I saw too many cars... Read more

Monday, December 14, 2009      3 comments

Last night before bed, I went down to move the wash into the dryer. Alas, there was water spewing out from under the washer. Aaargh! So I got to bed late and slept poorly. This would not be a good time to buy a new washer. I'm getting ... Read more
