I'm still very tired. I came home from church and slept for a couple of hours. I was reflecting during church (oops - yes - I should have been paying attention!) on the success of the art festival yesterday. I couldn't imagine how I would hav... Read more
Enough Said

The festival was a success. I walked, Zumbas, danced, chair aerobics and walked some more. My pedometer logged 14.6 miles but my legs tell it was much MORE! I'm taking some aspirin and going to bed.... Read more

I'm back. This morning we had true Zumba. The regular instruction was absent and we had a substitute. I was very nice to the sub. Unfortunately others were not. Some left when they saw that it was the regular teachers; a few more left when t... Read more

This morning I was still not feeling like exercising. But I did most of the walk with Leslie; but by this afternoon I was feeling like 75% of my normal self so I went to Water Aerobics. I pushed myself because I've done basically nothing this ... Read more
Half Hearted Exercise Day 2
Wednesday, September 26, 2012      2 comments

I walked with Leslie this morning but it wasn't at full capacity. I'm still feeling ill. Needless to say it has not been a good day on the Simple Diet. I was feeling nauseous this morning when I packed my lunch so I just packed soup. I didn'... Read more
Half Hearted Exercise
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      0 comments

I knew it was bound to happen. Hanging around kids all day, I was bound to pick up their germs. My head is pounding, my throat hurts and my nose is running. I gave Muscle Up a half-hearted attempt this morning. But on a positive note, ... Read more
Step Up Step Down

Our instructor introduced the step in the pool. This was a new experience. Kinda weird. I don't wear my glasses in the pool so everything is fuzzy. She had us jogging in the pool and then hopping over the step; It was hard to tell how close ... Read more

There's a great article in the USA Weekend section of today's newspaper. I remember starting my exercise routine by walking. I aimed for 20 minutes a day and now I work on increasing my speed. For the past 2 days I've incorporated a little jo... Read more
Riding with Traffic

I woke up a little late today so I only rode my bike for 25 minutes. But it was 25 minutes of fun. I felt so comfortable on it today. No rough starts; braking and stopping was a lot easier (not the best; i still have a tendency to hop off bef... Read more
My A Game +

I must say I amazed myself @ Zumba this morning. We started with the traditional line dances. I replayed a conversation (in my head) I had with my students earlier this week. We talked about the fact that school can be boring but THEY are ulti... Read more
Extra Effort

Not much to report. It was a busy day and I didn't get all my vegetables/fruits in today. I walked 3 miles this morning before school. We had a faculty meeting after school (I did eat a fruit cup) and then rushed to go home to practice a new ... Read more
Wellness Wednesday

The radio station I listen to morning announced that it was Wellness Wednesday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to hear any of the guests and suggestions for becoming healthier. However, I did get the disheartening article in the newspaper today wh... Read more
Revenge of the Body

Lots to report. I went to Muscle Up this morning. I'm really enjoying this class. I used a lower weight today but put extra effort into it. My muscles are not as sore as last week. We spoke to the instructor afterward about offering it a... Read more
Tech Dependent
Monday, September 17, 2012      2 comments

Something happened to Verizon and the school (and a large region of Northern VA is without internet). I was amazed at how dependent I am on it. A couple of times I went to the computer to look up something and nothing. Now I'm trying to play ... Read more
A Berry Beautiful Day
Sunday, September 16, 2012      0 comments

I began the morning with some oatmeal to which I added fresh strawberries and oatmeal! I knew I needed something that was going to hold me most of the morning. I played for a Sunday school program (they had brunch afterwards; I’m glad I ate bef... Read more
