Cane for the Kain
Wednesday, February 27, 2013      3 comments

I had a hard time sleeping last night. I took to ibuprofen before going to bed plus I used a heating pad on my hip. It hurt to lay on my back, on my opposite; I finally was able to bend my knee (almost to my check) before becoming comfortable.... Read more
Cheaters Never Win
Tuesday, February 26, 2013      0 comments

I'm gaining & losing the same 2 pounds! Bummer. But I have no one to blame but myself. Cheaters never win! So I need to back on track. Exercise is not the problem; it's the food intake. Today I started to track my food again. Exercise wa... Read more

I was so excited to see the package from Fitbit. But when I opened it, it was the wrong clip for my Fitbit! Bummer. Now I have to return this one and email the company to see if they even have the one I need. I don't want to have to buy a new... Read more

I just finished reading the Health Section of the Sunday paper; it's one of my favorite pastimes on Sunday. Today's feature article was written by a local gynecologist. He lost 100 pounds and now teaches cycling at the gym. The article suggest... Read more
Fun had by all

My 9 girlfriends just left. It was a combination of friends from work and church. They were laughing and talking as if they'd know each other for years. I sent them home with the leftover food. Needless to say, I spent the day getting r... Read more
The Cupid Shuffle
Friday, February 22, 2013      1 comments

It's amusing enough to begin my day with line dancing aka Zumba but to end it? Our regular teacher was absent and the sub (the same one we had on Wednesday) had us doing kick boxing and the Cupid Shuffle. Exercise has gone well this week... Read more
My Achy Breaky Joints
Thursday, February 21, 2013      2 comments

Our new Zumba instructor made quite an impression today. I haven't gotten a workout like that in a long time (except maybe yesterday!). I sweated and now I'm experiencing aching in my joints (good aches not painful!) My Aqua Zumba class... Read more
Kickin' It in the Pool
Wednesday, February 20, 2013      0 comments

Our regular water aerobics instructor is vacationing in Las Vegas so we had a substitute. Apparently our substitute teaches Kickboxing. So we attempted to do kickboxing in the pool. While most of the moves "translated" well, squats do not! ... Read more

I broke the holder for my FItbit yesterday! Daggone! I feel lost without it! I've ordered a new one but its on back order! Now I need to find my pedometer. Today was a good day. I went to weightlifting this morning. I'm having a... Read more
Fighting obesity @ school

One of my students asked me to sponsor a student wellness club today. I'm really flattered and of course I agreed. Hopefully we can get other students to join. I walked with Leslie this morning and have my bag packed to go to the gym thi... Read more
Clothed in Christ
Sunday, February 17, 2013      2 comments

Not much to report. Today's Sunday school lesson was about clothing yourself in Christ. We are to get rid of the "stuff" that is keeping us from fully serving God. Things like extra weight!! Thought from the Devotions for Dieters: Each... Read more

It's in the Stars

I'm just walking into the house. I went to (land) Zumba this morning and Aqua Zumba this evening. I went to a star gazing party sponsored by the local astronomy club. Seems kind of ironic with all the events of the day (meteor in Russi... Read more
Sugar High
Thursday, February 14, 2013      2 comments

Thankfully I didn't receive any candy today! Of course the students were "jacked" up on sugar today. I cleaned out the freezer and threw away the 2 boxes from 2012. I went to Zumba this evening. Because of Valentine's Day the class was ... Read more
The Simple Diet Anniversary
Wednesday, February 13, 2013      6 comments

Today marks my 1 year anniversary on The Simple Diet. It has been an amazing year. I woke up on February 13, 2012 (almost a month after reading about the diet in Woman’s World) and decided that it was the day! It was the day to take my l... Read more
