Walking 80 pounds of velcro and a spazzpogo
Wednesday, May 20, 2015      5 comments

I have two mismatched dogs, a standard poodle, and a Dexter rat terrier. Guess which one is the velcro and which is the spazzpogo? First I tried two leashes, but this resulted in either or both shoulders feeling dangerously close to being ... Read more

Ok, I know I am silly to be excited to be proving myself wrong. After all, most people want to be RIGHT all the time. I lost two pounds. Actually, since I gained two pounds at last weighing, I really lost four pounds. I started at 171, ... Read more
New workout plan
Tuesday, April 21, 2015      4 comments

Neither hubby and I were honestly doing much working out. He got himself a spiffy new bike and I got a spiffy new treadmill, which were supposed to motivate us to work out at home because we are renovating our home and working 6 days a week. I... Read more
New Sole F85 and virtual Jog and Bike Ride video
Sunday, April 05, 2015      5 comments

The new Sole F85 is *** FINALLY*** in the house and assembled. We should have bought it from Treadmill Doctor and paid for set up. We thought, gee, it's a folding treadmill, must be folded up in the box, so how hard can it be? Right? WRO... Read more
There is no accounting for the taste of people who make women's exercise underwear.

I suddenly decided to pinch pennies after spending $2000 on a treadmill and mat and $174 on a scythe. So I bought cheap sports underwear. Good quality fabric, but in the UGLIEST colors imaginable... matte neon-ey yellow-green with SHINEY magen... Read more
Scythe and systema
Sunday, March 29, 2015      4 comments

I am chucking my weed whackers and selling my two small mowers. A long time ago I used a scythe. Remember the Grim Reaper pictures? Well, one time 3100 miles away I was surprised by something, sliced open my leg and had to sew myself up becau... Read more
I ordered a new toy! Whoopee!

Now I just have to wait for it. And wait. And wait. I am like a 4 year old kid. I stayed up until 1am 2 nights ago looking at treadmills because my old cheap one is a piece of junk and I can't do anything on it but walk - and even that... Read more
Even my dogs gained weight.

Now that is pathetic. Solly, the standard, was 65 and now he is 79 pounds. He was always a little tall for a poodle, but I need to face facts... I stopped walking and running, and so did he. The Boston died (unrelated to my departure from Spar... Read more
I'm back

I'm back again. I don't have any grand ideas of checking in daily, counting every calorie and joining ten groups for motivation and fun, since I know I can't possibly afford the time to do that. However, I need the idea in the back of my head ... Read more

BLC has weekend challenges. This weekend includes a requirement to exercise in a silly manner. Here's my silliness. I had TWO dreams last night in which my standard poodle, Solly, took his usual minute or two to finish inspecting ... Read more

Today my husband and I went to a new Sports Authority that opened in our rather underpopulated county. We were surprised it was even built since we already have another sports store. A tall young brunette swooped on us before we got 3 feet in ... Read more

I spent 4 days heading out of town, being out of town and coming back to town with my mother in order to visit her terminally ill sister. I did a lot of thinking on this trip. My mother recently confided to me that she did not marry well i... Read more
BLC23 Goals - No More Fat Magic Tricks!
Wednesday, September 25, 2013      5 comments

When I joined BLC22 I had grand ideas of losing 2 pounds a week, which just didn't happen. I did also plan to even out my arm strength, which did. For those who don't know me, I have disc damage, which causes nerve compression. I modify a l... Read more
Visit to Ortho / Peroneal tendonitis
Saturday, September 21, 2013      8 comments

I've been eating up running books like they are candy. Why? I suppose because I was born broken and became broken-er and never really liked exercising before. Then I found running. I am still broken. But I am motivated to overcome the issue... Read more
