Today at work I was able to walk the puppy for 45 minutes! I'm very happy about that. I think that the fresh air did me good. It was sunny, but cool. Should be even cooler tomorrow, so I think I'll dress warmly. I stayed off carbs as well ... Read more

Really sick. Did 12 min floor exercise before work and really didn't feel well after. Went to work still not feeling great. Must lose weight as metal stairs were more difficult for me than they should have been. Got home and had frozen pizz... Read more

I slept very poorly last night and really suffered from GERD and a bad headache all day. Don't know if it was the lack of sleep last night, the sunshine, or something else. I kept hoping that I would be able to exercise later in the day day, a... Read more

Today was another good day. Woke up early to do a 2 mile WATP before we had to go into the city for dh's dentist appt. Today's WATP went much easier, maybe because I did the 3 mile yesterday. Lots of walking in town, as it is a long drive into... Read more

I really had to push myself to do a half hour on the treadmill today. Last night I was able to sleep in bed rather than sitting in the armchair, but I still felt lousy when I got up. Today wound up being a water day and I walked around Walmart ... Read more

I bought a used copy of The Spark at our favourite used bookstore. I am just starting it, but one thing that spoke to me was the importance of medium goals in the form of 100 day challenges. Today is day 1 of my 100 day challenge to do 30 min... Read more
