Ha! I thought that would get someone's attention. My DH is very anal. If he were to fix something around the house, he would go to the garage to get his tools. Out in the garage, he would see that it wasn't as clean as he wants it to be, so ... Read more
Birthday gift gone awry!

I asked my husband for a simple BD gift. A CD play I can use when I walk with Books on Tape that I get from the library. I don't like watching t.v., movies, or listening to music. While traveling, I tune out the Books on Tape and pick up a boo... Read more

I detest exercise and everything that goes with it. The only thing that keeps me moving is the Spark Points I get for it. Even the strength training. I have put in 10 exercise so I get the full 10 points. Believe me, if it weren't for point... Read more

For the longest time, I couldn't figure out why I didn't like to sweat. Of course, it is uncomfortable and icky, but there had to be other reasons. Then one day I saw a man running and he was really sweating. I thought to myself, "Sure, you j... Read more

Gosh, I sound like a cow! I've read a lot of Blogs lately and it seems everyone stumbles and then picks themselves up again. The point is: THEY PICK THEMSELVES UP AND MOVE FORWARD! And that's what we need to keep in mind. Once we stop we'll... Read more

I'm going to play tourist today and do a lot of walking. Going to Carmel or Monterey--Monterey at least for dinner. Foot (ankle?) still hurting so I'm going to be limping along at a snail's pace, but at least I'm moving.... Read more

Despite my foot hurting, I got two 10-min. walks in at a fairly fast pace. I'm low 10 min. but I haven't walked in 3 days, so it's okay (to me). I also walked various places I've been but I never count that.... Read more

I've been trying all morning to think of something inspiring to say but I'm at a loss. I've been responding to other Blogs and I think I might have helped a few people. Maybe that's all the inspiration I have in me today. As the other people ... Read more

I'm going to swipe some words from AAA's Via Magazine, but change them to fit us. "Sometimes life takes you where you want to go, and sometimes it doesn't. But there is a vital part of the journey you can control:" your health.... Read more
Trouble spot
Tuesday, August 18, 2009      1 comments

Here is my trouble spot. At the end of each day, I usually have 100 to 200 calories left over. I'm through for the day so I get my food statistics on what I ate. I close up the computer because it's the end of another day. But those 100-200 ... Read more
New week

Had a very restful weekend in the mountains. Didn't exactly eat right but didn't exactly eat wrong either. Didn't walk my 30 minutes but the minutes I did walk were up and down hills. In the high altitude, I could really feel it. Back on tra... Read more

I am out of the challenge I signed up for. I didn't realize we had to weigh on Sun. and it's nearly impossible. We are at the cabin or RV every weekend and there are no scales and no internet. Oh well, I'll just keep on losing on my own.... Read more

I joined a challenge on Spark People today. I wasn't going to but then thought I might need the encouragement. It's called "Last one standing." We are in the challenge each week if we lose or stay the same. If we gain (you have to be honest)... Read more
Bygone days

There have been many diets in my life. Being overweight and not understanding health eating, I always wanted fast results. If I didn't see a ten pound loss in the first few days, I was disappointed. I also wanted to see the pounds coming off... Read more
One pound
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      1 comments

Finally after two months, I have a 1 pound loss. In the past, that would have meant nothing. However, I am going to get healthy one pound at a time if that is what it takes. I'd rather have a one pound loss than a one pound gain. I am going ... Read more
