I've been doing sit-ups for a few days now and it seems like I can already see a difference. They take just a few moments, at least that is what I tell myself before starting each morning. It is a good way to get my body up and ready for a bit... Read more
No Wasted Days Here
Tuesday, December 19, 2017      2 comments

My right leg has been bothering me for a long time now. My annual checkup is next week and for the first time ever I am looking forward to it so I can discuss what to do with that knee. MRI to find out what exactly is wrong with it perhaps. W... Read more
Becoming a Minimalist
Wednesday, December 06, 2017      6 comments

When we moved to the apartment last year I had to downsize quite a bit from our large 2400+ home to a less than 1000 square foot living area. I adopted a more minimalist lifestyle which pleases me very much. This new lifestyle played a big rol... Read more
Back Pain is a Serious Thing
Monday, December 04, 2017      7 comments

Over three weeks ago I hurt my back. Something so simple, so silly has thrown me for a loop exercise-wise. The back pain has been intense some days but a constant pain all days. Sleeping is difficult. And to add to it my knee, or actually be... Read more
Someone Took My Lunch Today!
Thursday, November 02, 2017      5 comments

Every day I take a Slim Fast and a bottle of water to school for my "lunch" since I don't actually get a lunch but have enough time between classes to drink something. Today, however, someone else took my slim fast before I got to it. It kind ... Read more
Cold Day
Friday, October 27, 2017      5 comments

It is rainy and cold today. Not just cool but down right cold. At least to me. Ever since menopause my upper body is cold. My arms especially, so I wear long sleeves as soon as it goes below 80 degrees out. I have taken to wearing a jacket ... Read more
Consistency is Key
Thursday, October 26, 2017      4 comments

This is my fourth day in a row of getting up early to exercise. I feel so much better and my step counts have been more consistent too. I would love to get back up to 20,000 day but I don't see how I can make that happen anymore when I have to... Read more
Start of the Cold
Tuesday, October 24, 2017      3 comments

The weather is turning cold and they turned on the heat at school. Wasn't expecting it since last week they were trying to freeze us and I took to wearing a pair of gloves to class (lime green) and heavy sweaters. Today I show up in another sw... Read more
Dirt Moving
Sunday, October 22, 2017      2 comments

Yesterday was a weird day for me. Just couldn't get motivated to do much besides clean the house. I swept and mopped every floor on the main level and it looks fantastic. DH even commented on it when he returned from his step-mom's funeral in... Read more
Cooking Day Came Early
Friday, October 20, 2017      2 comments

Coyotes were howling all last night and I got very little sleep. Just when I thought they were done (brief pause) they started up again. DH was blissfully snoring away through the whole thing. It sounds like we have a lot of coyotes in our ar... Read more
Early Morning Fun
Wednesday, October 18, 2017      5 comments

Since moving into our new house I have slept like the dead each evening. My head hits the pillow and I am out like a light until about 7AM the next day. Except today. Today I woke early for some reason and after laying in bed deciding if I sh... Read more

My sweet little boy and I have been spending time in the basement this week. He sits in a chair and watches TV while I get some steps in on the reboun... Read more
Changing Seasons, Changing Clothing
Sunday, October 15, 2017      2 comments

Swapped out my summer clothing today for fall/winter stuff. DH hauled up the plastic tubs up to the bedroom and I proceeded to fold up the summer things and try on the winter wear and hang in the closet. I put 3 sweaters instantly into the Goo... Read more
Dinner Out
Thursday, October 12, 2017      4 comments

Mandatory family dinner tonight. Older sister picked out Olive Garden which I never go to because of the sodium content of all their food. I spent a great deal of time last night going over their menu online and then again this morning too. W... Read more
Back to Running
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      3 comments

I was running pretty consistently for about 2 weeks but my knees were absolutely killing me. They even ached when I was laying in bed. Not good at all. So I stopped running for a week and they are back to normal. Today I will attempt running... Read more
