Hoo Boy, Am I Sore!
Friday, November 09, 2012      1 comments

We did lots of squats in Zumba tonight. Boy, are my thighs sore! Remember to stick that tush out behind you when you do them so that your knees don't go too far forward, injuring your knee.... Read more
Good Lab Report

I got the test results from last week's blood test today. Many values are the same. The ones that went up slightly are my electrolytes - potassium and calcium. (They didn't test magnesium.) This is good. This means that the prescription pot... Read more
Why I didn't Go to Kickboxing Tonight
Monday, November 05, 2012      1 comments

We had a sub - the same very inexperienced sub we had before. I don't feel safe with her and am afraid of getting hurt. Since my muscles are in such bad shape, this isn't a paranoid fantasy. I felt a bit guilty leaving my friends in the hall ... Read more
Sunday Lunches

Being a pastor's wife can come with some challenges in the "getting food on the table" category. We often don't leave church until 1 pm by the time my husband finishes talking to everyone and locking up. We live 30 min. away. We were eating o... Read more
I wonder how many calories I am really burning?
Saturday, November 03, 2012      2 comments

I'm thinking about renting a bodybugg to see how many calories I am really burning. But I'm not sure how accurate it is. I put in my weight, age and gender into a number of calculators, along with what exercise I'm doing and for how long and I... Read more

Time for November Goals
Thursday, November 01, 2012      4 comments

1. Continue to stay refined sugar free. 2. Switch to spelt instead of regular wheat and see if it makes a difference. 3. Continue to stay dairy free. 4. Continue to exercise 5 hours a week. 5. Stretch it out. 6. Bu... Read more
I did it!
Thursday, November 01, 2012      2 comments

I said "no" to sugar. I don't really like candy other than dark chocolate, so that was rather easy to say "no" to. But my daughter made chocolate chip cookies today. Those are my downfall. But I did not put a single on in my mouth. This was... Read more
Beav-a-thon!

We've been watching "Leave it to Beaver" on Netflix lately. I love that show. Honestly, I don't know why everyone says that family was so perfect. They argue, get into scrapes, the parents mess up and have to apologize to the kids. . . Actual... Read more
Realigning Myself
Monday, October 29, 2012      1 comments

I wore my new athletic shoes again today. We took them on a walk at the mall. The good news is that my feet did not hurt badly today and I won't have to get new shoes again. But my poor muscles (which are very sensitive due to medical reasons) a... Read more
(Not) Wide Awake
Sunday, October 28, 2012      0 comments

It's so embarrassing. I want to be awake to talk to people or listen to a meeting but if I sit down and it's even remotely comfortable, I start to fall asleep. I've fallen asleep reading aloud to my kids. I've fallen asleep during my husband'... Read more
I Want to Cry
Saturday, October 27, 2012      2 comments

I went to New Balance and got new shoes. They had me stand on this pressure sensitive pad and could see that my heels are getting the bulk of my weight. I tried on a number of shoes. As soon as I got out of my old ones and into new ones my fe... Read more
New Shoes
Saturday, October 27, 2012      1 comments

I'm wondering if part of my ankle pain is due to my shoes. New Balance didn't have my "favorite" kind of shoe last time I shopped there months ago and I got another style. I'm going back today to buy new shoes. And possibly new inserts too. ... Read more
Oops. I blogged too soon

I totally forgot that the zucchini bread batter that my daughter made up for an order had sugar in it. I licked the spatula before putting it in the dishwasher. I'm not worried about it at all from a caloric standpoint but from a "no sugar cha... Read more
No Sugar, Day 2
Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

I find myself looking for a small sugar pick-me-up right before meals when the meal isn't quite ready to go on the table. Today I added to my lunch a pre-sitting down slice of Dave's killer bread with peanut butter. A bit later I ate my salad ... Read more
