This time tomorrow, Lord willing, I will be in downtown Chicago chatting away with my dil. I am so looking forward to it! However, I am not totally unaware of the challenges I will face and after reading a few SP articles with breakfast I thou... Read more

I had a nice visit with my mother then met my dil for a hike on the way home since Tall Timbers is only about 5 miles off my route and close to where they live. We covered almost 3 1/2 miles and were happy hikers. Then I followed her home to v... Read more
Why I take food everywhere

I got in the habit of carrying a packed cooler with me when I was leading 8 WW meetings a week in 5 different counties and it is a habit that served me well today. I was just going to run into town (16 mile round trip) but it was 11am so I pack... Read more

AFTER the Colts game we took the dogs to one of the nature parks where they can play in the water then took them for a walk while they dried off. It was a beautiful afternoon and it was a nice way to spend some of it. Before I started getting ... Read more
For the record

I don't always make myself very clear. It isn't that I'm stressing over the need to take more rest time but that my tendency is to go hard every day until I can't then I am down for several days or even a week. What I need to do is to plan a c... Read more
I am not a bum
Saturday, September 12, 2009      4 comments

Okay, I feel like a bum but realistically I am going to have to incorporate two rest days a week instead of going until I drop. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. The flesh is also 60 instead of 30 and though I don't really *feel* 60... Read more

Guess I should have waited until 9pm to post, eh? :) Today was a little better and I finally got in 30 minutes with Leslie Sansone late this afternoon. I wanted to hit the treadmill early but had too many interruptions then it was just to... Read more
Back to it

For some reason I am still tired today but my eating is on target and I pushed through 30 minutes of cardio plus some stretching. It would be so nice to just step out the door for a walk but we live in the country on a narrow, winding, hilly gr... Read more
Not too Sparky

Work, short nights, lots of exercise, etc., caught up with me yesterday and I have been a bum since we got home from church and lunch yesterday afternoon! I overate yesterday but not junk, just too many raw nuts. There's no junk in the house, ... Read more

Last evening I had not gotten in any dedicated exercise and kept having visions of missing one day then another and another and another until my weight was back over 200 like it was in 2000 so I got out a 1 mile Leslie Sansone video and did a mi... Read more
A Different Day
Friday, September 04, 2009      1 comments

It's nearly bedtime and I "have" to eat more food before I go to bed! Too wild. I had a medium sized list of things to accomplish today but my husband was chatty and the phone kept ringing! I did get the absolute essentials done but that's ab... Read more
A new old hiking trail
Thursday, September 03, 2009      2 comments

My sweet daughter-in-law met me today for a hike starting from the park where the kids used to play growing up. They have linked the park via a system of trails to a small nature preserve about a mile away so we walked that. She had been there... Read more
Smaller size
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      6 comments

I was thinking that there wasn't anything interesting to say then remembered I bought a smaller size today! One size to go to fit my "old" clothes! And I got about 8 inches of hair cut off so I will need a new picture for this blog! Fina... Read more

I dragged myself to the treadmill like an old dog being dragged to the vet--you get the idea. "I ONLY have to do 10 minutes and I'm outta here." But there is something magical about movement that once I get past the mental hurdle I start to wa... Read more
