So much fun, it doesn't feel like a workout.
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      1 comments

Somehow I got off schedule last week. I'm sure it's the new job, Dad's hospital visit, and end of the year activities. I missed my regular workout on Sunday & Monday. I was feeling bad, kicking myself for 'skipping'. I signed on to updat... Read more

I was so exhausted from the hospital visits and work. Exhaustion won Tuesday. I didn't work out and I was a bit disappointed but I really wanted a good rest. So I was determined to finish some stressful, lingering work this morning. I ma... Read more

Today was a true test. Dad had another heart procedure today. Very emotional day. I started off the day eating well. By mid-morning, I was chomping on fast food even though I wasn't hungry. Then a terribly unhealthy lunch. I ate less but i... Read more

I finished another workout today. I enjoyed the workout, love the extra energy, the improved moods, improved eating habits, etc. I've seen some body changes but the scale hasn't moved. Well, today it moved up and I was soooo disappointed. I'... Read more
Consistency
Saturday, May 01, 2010      1 comments

I've worked out on a regular, consistent basis for over a week. It feels great to find a program that fits. 9 days is a small step and I want to have 30 days of fitness. It's so easy to find an excuse to avoid a workout. I've stayed with my ... Read more

My husband entered his car in a car show. We had a blast. I walked so much today. It was hard to sit still with so many beautiful cars, exciting events happening within walking distance. My feet were hurting and I took several breaks but I j... Read more

From Obstacles to Opportunities

Made those mistakes of falling into bad habits, letting obstacles alter my path. The last week has been a struggle. Felt like I was gaining weight and losing energy with each difficult day. Monday, had to travel and body was aching from sitti... Read more
Wii Discovery

While using Wii Fit Plus last night, I discovered Free Step. I can step for 10,20, or 30 minutes while watching TV. The remote keeps metronome type beat or counts so you don't have to have the TV display on the Wii. There is a run feature too... Read more

New job has me very busy but I am enjoying the challenge. When I am busy, I don't have wondering thoughts about snacking. I'm not watching TV so I don't get influenced by talking cookies....LOL. Another goal accomplished - I completed my ... Read more

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      3 comments

My new job has kept me busy but no complaints since I was unemployed for 6 wks. It has helped change my eating habits though. I don't think about food as much because my hands are busy. I haven't had as much time to visit SP. Life wasn't ba... Read more
