A new year and a new theme.... NO EXCUSES!
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      3 comments

Just like this season of The Biggest Loser, my theme for the year is No Excuses. I am full of them. Most of us use the same ones, so I know that I am not alone. Today I did 15 minutes on the elliptikiller (LOL!). Not a whole lot but a good ... Read more

Friday, March 18, 2011      7 comments

It wasn't pretty and it wasn't fast but I completed my "Virtual 5K" by actually doing my walk/jog outside! This is huge for me, as when I jog I look like Phoebe on "Friends". I did my 5k in roughly 40 minutes. I didn't do the Spark plan b... Read more

I signed up to do the Virtual 5k on Spark People and I have been doing great. I am on the last week and tomorrow was supposed to be my "race", but it's been a weird couple of days. On Tuesday I hurt my knee during the 3rd mile of a 4 mile walk.... Read more

Monday, December 06, 2010      1 comments

I can't remember the last time I was on Spark. Not sure if it was October or November. I have really dropped the ball this time. No real excuse either. Heck...I don't even have a job to interfere with exercise! I thought that being unemplo... Read more
August Update-Plateau-ville
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      4 comments

I never updated my before/after blog. One reason is getting somebody to take a picture another reason is even though I have lost inches it's hard to tell. One drawback of being "tall". LOL! This month I have done pretty well with my exerci... Read more

Monday, May 17, 2010      2 comments

I am thinking about doing the "Spark Your Way to a 10k" program that I saw today. I am NOT a runner at all, but I do walk at a pretty good clip. So, I thought, why not try it? I have a treadmill and I think that this will Spark me a little! ... Read more
