When do you know that you have crossed the line? Today for example, I rode my bicycle this morning for ½ hour (more about this later!), went to the gym and completed both Aqua and Land Zumba. 150 minutes of exercise today and I wanted to exerc... Read more

The Destination
Sunday, September 09, 2012      0 comments

Today's sermon talked about the importance of the destination and not the journey. The journey can be fraught with disappoinments, struggles, and hurts but they can be overcome. How true of dieting! After the 2 services, I came home to... Read more
The Big Day
Saturday, September 08, 2012      1 comments

It was a pleasure to sleep in today (until 7am). I decide not to ride my bike today. I didn’t want to show up the wedding in a cast. I went to the gym where they were having a Zumbathon. The gym was raising funds for a scholarship program. I... Read more

Life is Great! something, something plate.....
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      3 comments

My former personal trainer used to make me repeat some stupid mantra about life being great and something about a plate. Usually I refused cause it just sounded weird. But today has been a GREAT Day! Why? My students were really on ta... Read more
Are you Ready to Labor?
Monday, September 03, 2012      1 comments

These were the first words from the instructor's mouth. Happy Labor Day! I didn't make it to water aerobics but I did Zumba. We actually had 3 instructors (including Eddie). It was quite the workout. I've spent the last few hours ... Read more

Your Best is Ahead
Saturday, September 01, 2012      3 comments

your worst is behind. I heard this on the radio this morning and it confirmed my need to stop letting the past define my future. Just because I've quit diets and regained weight in past DOES NOT have to be my future. Thanks to all my sp... Read more
