A New Six Week Commitment Ole
Sunday, September 20, 2009      3 comments

With all the stuff that is going on around us, my FIL coming to live with us with me as his main caregiver, friends out of work, friends with dementia and Alzheimers etc, yesterday I talked my poor long suffering hubby into booking us a week's ... Read more

Today I am going into the city to fill my BIG co2 cylinder which provides me with my soda water. My dh installed a system in the basement which connects to a tap in the kitchen so I always have cool soda water on tap ( I really like the bubble... Read more
We need to walk as we age!

My hubby and I have some very dear friends that we usually celebrate my birthday with. This year I was a little late calling them to arrange a dinner together because with my last kid leaving for university there is more debris than most tornad... Read more
Changing up the exercise
Monday, September 14, 2009      1 comments

I have been great at doing cardio, not so hot at doing strength training regularly. So today I changed things and did my strength training in the morning and will do my cardio at night. I did this because last night I did my cardio at night... Read more
I'm baaaaack!

I can't believe that the summer is over already - especially since it was cold and rainy all of July and a couple of weeks of August. The weather is beautiful now, but even though John asked if I wanted to stay at the cottage longer I am more t... Read more
See you all in Sept
Thursday, June 25, 2009      5 comments

Yesterday was exciting because they called mid-morning to tell me that my car was fixed. So today I head off to the cottage hopefully until Sept. I will miss SP, but I know that I'll be back in Sept and feel refreshed and raring to go! I hav... Read more
Unprecedented bout of realism!
Wednesday, June 10, 2009      5 comments

In a bout of totally unexpected realism my family and I decided that I should stay home this week and not go strand myself at the cottage. There are several reasons for this, I wasn't feeling well yesterday, the weather is terrible and the bugs... Read more
Exercise isn't everything.
Friday, June 05, 2009      3 comments

Today I did a new WATP dvd for the second time and noticed something...one of the walkers who has been around for a long time and is clearly in good shape, has put on a lot of weight. I mean a lot of weight. I read somewhere that nutrition... Read more
Woohoo! I finally did some strength training!
Friday, June 05, 2009      3 comments

Finally after about three weeks I got my upper body strength training done. I am in bad shape, but things could be worse. I only have free weights and dropped them for almost everything. I did what for me is a full upper body workout of 2 set... Read more
How many diets is too many diets?
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      4 comments

I took some time today to go to the bookstore and pick up the South Beach Diet, Clean Eating and Clean Eating Recipes. This all started with my picking up a copy of "The Skinny Bitch" a couple of weeks ago and being intrigued by it. Why all t... Read more
No exercise today
Monday, June 01, 2009      1 comments

Today was a no exercise day. It was rainy and grey and I needed to get some housework done, but mostly I just felt really out of it. DD has been sick for almost a week, so I hope I don't get it. I didn't really plan my menus today either as ... Read more
Back from the cottage
Sunday, May 31, 2009      3 comments

I just got back from the cottage and I think I had a good weekend. I ate ok, we only had the food I took up. I did a WATP this morning and John is so sweet he said that any time I exercise, it's good. It is so easy to rack up the calories.... Read more
Not so good today.
Friday, May 29, 2009      2 comments

It figures. Whenever I have a good day it seems like the next one is not so good. Today I was at the high end of my calories. I don't want to do that anymore - I want to be low with the occasional mid-range. I did my 4 mile WATP express (the... Read more
A good day
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      0 comments

Today was a good day. I stayed in my calorie range (which meant dinner was a bit weird). I made sugar-free jello so I'd have something sweet and not feel deprived. I turned down the yucky cupcake with the betty crocker icing that dd offered m... Read more
Morning Exercise a must
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      1 comments

Today was a good day for tracking my food and staying in my calorie range. I am really happy about that. I am using a paper journal and writing in the nutritional information in pen so that when I go to the cottage and do not have access to th... Read more
