Not my Bag
Saturday, July 13, 2013      4 comments

Today was my crochet class. I have concluded this is probably not the hobby for me. I'm not taking up crochet because I have some glorious project in mind (like making a pot holder or a hat). I thought it would be something different to keep ... Read more
There's an app for that
Friday, July 12, 2013      2 comments

I downloaded two apps to my phone - the Sparkpeople & the Fitbit app. I'm already using the Spark app to log my water. So far I have (slightly) exceeded my water goal for the week (24 ounces per day). Yesterday I had 5 8-oz glasses. Today I'... Read more

Okay today I reached a new level of hooked on exercise. I cancelled my internet service so I could join a SECOND gym. Who would have thought it -- two gyms! Now I just have to wait until they finish construction.... Read more

gets you started; Habit is what keeps you going! (Jim Ryun) I saw this quote on the internet this morning. I noticed that some SparkFriends have daily or weekly goals they set. So I'm going to try this. I feel comfortable with my ... Read more

It's been another great day. I went to Master's Strength this morning. After yesterday's Body Combat I wasn't sure at what level I would work today. But I gave it 100%. I like the class because each week its different. Today we worked with ... Read more
New Love
Monday, July 08, 2013      2 comments

Wow! I think I may have a new love - Body Combat! It will never replace Zumba but it was quite an aerobic workout. It helped that my RIPPED instructor was standing next to me. She is getting certified in Body Combat and was able to show me so... Read more
Planning for the Week
Sunday, July 07, 2013      2 comments

I went to church this morning and came home to change and went shopping at my favorite store - the Goodwill. I bought a blouse, an exercise top and a stack of paperbacks for the week. Luckily our Goodwill gives you a 20% off discount coupon if... Read more

I was too tired for the frozen yogurt last night. I went to Zumba this morning. It was another good workout. I left the gym and went to the farmer's market. I bought kale, some green peppers and more tomatoes. Nothing like fresh tomato... Read more

I slept in this morning. I didn't feel like dealing with the Zumba "like" class. Unfortunately, the gym doesn't offer many classes on Friday. I do plan to go to the gym in the morning. I'm just getting in the house smelling like charco... Read more
Happy Independence Day

I read a story in a magazine recently in which a grandmother asked her grandchild about the significance of Independence Day. The child replied, "That's the day Will Smith destroyed the aliens!" Fredericksburg is rich in American History.... Read more
Cleaning Frenzy
Wednesday, July 03, 2013      3 comments

I slept in this morning but did rise in time to go to Zumba. It was another great workout. I came home and started cleaning. I'm throwing away a lot of papers I'm not using or no longer need. Actually the whole thing started as I am looking ... Read more
Causing Confusion
Tuesday, July 02, 2013      4 comments

I was in a "playful" mood this morning when I went to the mall to walk. The mall has a walking program; they have a suggested path to take and have calculated the number of miles. This morning I decided to walk the path in reverse; boy you shou... Read more

New Start

Tomorrow I start the Simple Diet in earnest. I took the week off. I didn't eat properly nor did I do any/a lot of exercise. I stopped at the store on the way home to stock up on shakes and meals. Weather permitting, I'm going to get up... Read more
Practice Naps
Saturday, June 29, 2013      3 comments

My piano student (an older student) brags about the benefits of "practice" naps. He swears by 2 hour naps; typically I start to feel guilty after 30 minutes. But today - I indulged. (As did my parents!) My nieces left this morning and all w... Read more
