Monday, May 21, 2012      1 comments

Blue (my parakeet) was seen by the vet this afternoon. He trimmed her beak and sent her home. As usual, her liver causes her trouble, but the vet was not particularly concerned. She must have just had a bad couple of days and then moved past ... Read more

My calorie count was high on the majority of the days this week. After some consideration of the problem, daily lunches were responsible for the bulk of my problems: *We had run out of the bread that usually makes my lunch sandwich. I che... Read more

One of my pets, a parakeet named Blue, has an enlarged liver. It crowds her lungs (did you know birds have many, many lungs?) which makes it difficult to breathe. In addition, the imbalance of her system causes her beak to grow at an accelerat... Read more

The tulips need to be moved before the workmen begin on Monday. It took a few hours to move a huge clump of bulbs (two more to go). What a beautiful day it was. Whenever I found a worm, my son insisted I give it to him. He'd look at the worm... Read more

During a regular check up with my doctor this week, I mentioned and he was familiar with the site. It was my doctor that lead me to seek out this website. When I asked him about post-pregnancy weight concerns, he suggested I co... Read more
A bit over.

I went 200 calories over my limit today. Darn, those birthday treats from students. Nice kids, though. : ) Yesterday I was so tired. The only premeditated exercise I got was during my lunch break. Cardio was a no-go. Dragging was t... Read more

My toddler was testing me today. Long story short, I was carrying him home from a walk and he was kicking me. I asked him if he wanted a time out, too. He said, "This is just stupid." Eh... A co-worker wore a shirt that said something t... Read more
A Carb Kind of Day
Saturday, April 28, 2012      0 comments

I managed to stay within my calorie limit today. Carbs were the thing today and I did not get the fruits and veggies that I uaually do. Now that I think of it, fruit sounds really good right now. Do I grab an apple or do I stay within my... Read more

I found this spark recipe: Peanutty Fruit Salad. I was excited to make it, but nervous about bringing a nut product into my home due to allergies of other family members. I was at Festival Foods and found a product called Wowbutter. Unlike ot... Read more

I just read that swinging on a swing set burns about 200 calories per hour. I need to start giving myself credit for all the playground time I've been racking up since the weather warmed up.

More chair aerobics
Saturday, April 21, 2012      0 comments

When I did the chair aerobics routine today, I paused the video each time Coach Nicole began a final count and did 20 more reps of that movement. I didn't time it, but I'll give myself credit for 15 cardio mintues. What a great way to work... Read more
Chair aerobics rule!

Considering chair aerobics
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      0 comments

I am walking a lot (putting all of my eggs in one basket). At some point, some sort of overuse injury might be a possibility. Branching out into chair aerobics seems like a good option. Perhaps twice a week. Will my young son help me do ... Read more
