FINALLY exercising again!
FINALLY got out for a walk this morning...40 minutes, but tried to keep it down a walk rather than a power walk - hard, because I tend to fall into a certain rhythm once I get started! But I don't want to overdo and relapse again. I can't beli... Read more
Slowly but Surely
Well, slowly but surely, I'm starting to get back to normal...still awfully tired, but walking a few blocks or staying on my feet for a while is no longer gassing me, which is nice. I finally connected with my doc's office a little while ago an... Read more
Turning the Corner...I Hope!
Well, complained to my doc Tuesday about how crappy I was still feeling, and she had me go in for labwork yesterday. Yesterday morning I not only fell back to sleep after the alarm went off - which I NEVER do - but Paul had to wake me up an hou... Read more
Good News, Bad News
Well, the bad news is that this bug is still keeping me down - I managed to get up and do a half hour walk (not a power walk) yesterday morning, but I just couldn't do it today. This energy level thing is killing me - after cleaning up the kitc... Read more
Easing Back Into It
Well, finally feeling better, though my energy level still isn't great. I was desperate to get out of the house yesterday morning after four days of being holed up, so I grabbed the kid and the dog and walked over to the start line for the Arth... Read more
Still Sick :-p
Well, still feeling pretty crappy...went to the doc today to beg for drugs, but the strep test came out negative so no go on the antibiotics. Just a basic nasty virus, gotta keep resting and riding it out. So much for my plans...like seeing Ir... Read more
Okay, I know it's a little early, but I'm home sick so I have time to think about this! And I just fulfilled my "spontaneous" reso - got a groupon for five yoga classes for $29, woo hoo! I've been doing yoga dvd's for several years, but I've n... Read more
Well, I've been fighting something for a week or two, finally hit yesterday and I'm still feeling crappy today. Just really tired, generally achy, and a bit of congestion and sore throat. The throat makes me nervous becuase I know strep is goi... Read more
What HAS Changed, Even if the Weight Hasn't
Okay, so my new friend ALIMESSA posted a great blog on what progress she has made, to counteract frustration at the scale not moving. Since I'm at that same exact frustration point, I thought maybe I should do the same. Here goes:

The Pictorial Story of Our New Veggie/Herb Beds
We recently cleared out the back part of the dog run, had our contractor install another gate to section it off, and built two raised beds - one for vegetables and one for herbs. I'm happy to say that almost everything we planted is thriving so... Read more
Why Do I Even Bother Getting on the Scale
Finally braved the scale after laying off for a while...23 days, to be exact, according to Wii Fit. I got on full of hope - I've really stepped up the intensity of my workouts, my pants have been feeling a tad looser, and I was fairly confident... Read more
Made it to 30
I'm just so tired this week, I think I'm fighting whatever my daughter had a few days ago...plus my arthritis keeps kicking up with all the weather changes. It took a herculean effort to get myself out of bed and onto the exercise bike this mor... Read more
More Random Thoughts
My daughter is sick, and I feel like I'm fighting it a bit but I have managed not to come down with it yet. I forced myself to work out yesterday despite feeling under the weather, and today I'm feeling better. I really have found that I get s... Read more
