Starting the New Year on the Right Foot
Tuesday, January 01, 2019      0 comments

Literally--my right foot goes first when I walk. Nothing like the New Year to get on track. I lost 10 pounds in the fall with Weight Watchers during a limited 14-week program at work and got below that BMI that said I was no longer overwei... Read more

I had a great month of exercise, and I'm also doing WW. I've lost 7.8 lbs in 7 weeks. In my mind, I was back to where I was a year ago. However, by looking at my records on SparkPeople, I'm actually a pound lighter than I was a year ago. I'm goi... Read more

I began exercising again in July--this month I have exceeded the 1000 minutes of exercise that I set for myself. Still doing WW--have lost 6 pounds in 6 weeks. I am 1.5 pounds away from where I was in February. Once I hit that goal I'm hopi... Read more
58 days and counting
Wednesday, September 05, 2018      1 comments

Fifty-eight days ago I started exercising again. Not to the level I was doing earlier in the year. Most days I walk about 20 or more minutes. I'm excited to say that I have not missed a day of exercising in over a month. One day, I only walked 7... Read more
Talked myself out of exercising--now talking myself back into it

I started off the new year with a great January of exercising. Then about a week into February I was feeling overwhelmed with an extra project at work and told myself I could take a month off from exercising until the project was over. At the en... Read more

Tracking food: Are you getting enough...in your diet?
Monday, September 25, 2017      3 comments

I actually am a pretty healthy eater. In the past couple of years, losing weight has been slow. I have felt like I know what to eat, and I've wanted to be able to eat without a constant counting of calories. Dieting can feel restrictive--and the... Read more
Exercise is my secret
Tuesday, May 23, 2017      1 comments

While reducing calories is the key to weight loss, I've realized for some time that I make more thoughtful decisions about what I eat when I'm in an exercise routine. Whenever I stop keeping track of exercise, I tend to gain weight because I beg... Read more
Exercising with an injury
Sunday, April 30, 2017      0 comments

Two years ago I got an injury in April, and it derailed me. I stopped exercising and didn't really get back into it the rest of the year. That lack of exercise resulted in my gaining back some weight. In January 2016, I started over, and I've ke... Read more
Exercising with a Minor Injury
Saturday, April 15, 2017      1 comments

I ended up with two minor sprains in my ankles this week--sorry to admit that it was an injury related to tripping while wearing high heels. Flats are back! I can walk slowly (no need for crutches) but can't do impact cardio. Here's how I'm... Read more
Walking and Dancing to the Tunes
Thursday, March 23, 2017      0 comments

I walk to Leslie Sansone videos on YouTube a lot. But I know those walk-at-home moves. So today for my cardio, I went to YouTube and played a lot of fast beats and did those walk-at-home moves to some pop and rock oldies: Stayin' Alive Bo... Read more

Beating Goals
Wednesday, December 28, 2016      1 comments

I'm at 12362 exercise minutes for the year--so far. That number beats my previous year-end record. I'm at 1200 minutes this month and going for at least 1250 minutes for the month. If I go past that number, I'll beat my record from November. I f... Read more
