I can't believe that summer's coming to an end - although I've heard predictions that Sept will be warmer than Aug was. We'll see about that.

I've given considerable thought to what I want to achieve for Sept. I have so many weak areas but I must pick one and that's strength training. I plan on using weights & resistance band 3 x week. Wish me luck!!!!

I hope everyone is well.

My exercise time is way down lately, not sure why, but today I took my grandson for a very long walk. We did 45 minutes this AM before it got too hot. He fell asleep in the carriage so I just kept walking & walking. It felt good.

Have a great day!!!

Today is my first Sparkversary - I don't know where the year went. Unfortunately I haven't lost much weight but I've met such amazing people.

This next year I plan on getting down to business, as they say. I need to challenge myself in small ways and work my way up to larger ones.

Have a great day

NJJAZZ I'll be on vacation in a few days too! I will be abroad in Ireland, and I'm worried I'll be eating like a pig.. Hopefully the sightseeing will counteract some of the pub fare, but it will be hard. Ireland seems to be full of meat and starches, so I'll have to stay committed to eating healthy.

I hope everyone is well & enjoying this beautiful weather - it's almost fall like & way too soon for me.

NJJAZZ - hope you have a great 2 week vacation. I can identify with your eating healthy challenge - I have the same problem. There's just too many temptations out there & I have no will power at all. I should join you to make that my Sept challenge.

I keep coming back to the notion of eating properly. Not starving myself - but making good decisions most of the time - then leaving some time for treats and snacks socially. I get plenty of really good exercise - and thats firming up some of me............... BUT emoticon with this layer of flub and fat on the belly and hips - I dont look the way I want to - and Im not settling for anything less.


OK so ----------------- Im off on vacation - leaving Tues.......................... for eight days. I will eat out alot - and going to try to make good decisions lots of the time - but sure as hell going to enjoy this vacation............. so Im NOT starving myself by any means.

Going to give it my best shot at getting serious when I get home - A good Sept challenge I guess.

i didnt last 2 days with eating cleaner............................ too many temptations. So where is my willpower?


Headed to Fla early next week and I know its darn near impossible to stick with an eating challenge while on vacation................. so while I will try not to over indulge - Im not committing to an eating plan until I get back................


Where is my willpower ????? emoticon

This Sunday my son is getting married in the Poconos. Last week an apartment became available in a Senior Living facility and we put a deposit down on it. My Dad is 93 and is stressing out about all this so I am leaving tomorrow morning to stay at his house with him for a while. He doesn't have internet service so I am not sure when I will be able to log in again but hopefully I'll be able to use someone's computer up there.

I was wondering how my legs were going to feel today after a 28 mile bike ride yesterday. Amazingly - they are a little tight - but dont really hurt. I think this is my cardio of choice.....
Going to NYC tomorrow for a professional training session on the kettlebells with a national kb winner. Im so excited................. my treat to me.

I am hoping to stay home this weekend and get caught up on a few things but I received an email from my brother that one of the homes we were interested in for my Dad has an apartment available and my brother's going to put a deposit on it tomorrow. I hope we can wait to start cleaning out Dad's place until after my son's wedding which is a week from Sunday.

I've done well with my fitness program so far this week. I'm averaging 7,500 steps/day & I've added in some stretching exercises. My arms are a little sore which means it's working - I think.

Today is emoticon of my stretching program. I found a book that was given to me almost 20 years ago that shows how to stretch every part of ones body. It starts at the head & goes right to the toes with instructions, explanation of muscles it works & pictures.

I do believe I feel better already.

Have a great day everyone

my Aug change has been focussed on nutrition ----------- lots of family picnics and summer parties and Im on vacation for one week this month ----------- so its really a challenge. Not doing too badly so far even with afamily picnic this weekend.


Hhave not been on track with my working out.............. have to get back to that. Finishing up on this computer and will take a long bike ride and then finish up at the gym -

Im building muscle for sure - can see it in my arms and feel it in my legs................. not burning fat yet ---------------- how interesting that the fat holds on so tightly.

emoticon , Stretching is the one thing I have been attempting to do daily. Some days are better than others. However, when I do, I feel so much better.

I'm trying to get back into my fitness program after having ignored it for 2 weeks. Today I walked 1.5 miles and did 10 min of strength. I hope to get another walk in later if the rain holds out.

I've been trying to think of what small change I want to make for Aug. & I think I've finally decided. I really need to stretch every day. It's so important, especially as one ages, and yet I never take the time to do it.

Have a great Sunday

Well vacation is over for this year. We had a great time but now it's back to business. I'm more than a little upset with myself for relaxing way too much and doing so little exercise. I got so lazy over the 2 weeks that I'm finding it hard to get back to my routine - ugh.

We're going to a wedding tonight. It should be lots of fun but we have to work at 8 AM tomorrow - that stinks.

Have a great day

emoticon Hi everyone!
My goal for the month of August is to do 3 sets of ST every morning (calf raises, leg abductions, leg raises, squats, and pushups) and at least 10 minutes of walking or some other form of cardio every day.

So my sciatica has been flaring up lately on my left side, and even though I went to the chiropractors yesterday, it woke me up this morning around 4:30 and I've been up ever since. NOT the way I envisioned starting August!

We'll see how the day goes....

This is the end of week 1 of my challenge for talking on chat threads. It's not nearly as painful as I thought it would be & I'm so glad I extended my comfort zone.

Speaking of comfort zones, tonight Hubby & I went to dinner & I chose the best dish ever. I would normally choose an alfredo, cheesy chicken dish loaded with calories but I got to thinking of what might be a healthier choice. I opted for a baby spinach, chicken, strawberry, blueberry, Roquefort cheese, chopped walnut dish & was I ever glad - it was so yummy!!!!!!!!!!!! I now have a favorite summer dish - so happy.

Hope everyone is doing well - hugs, Sue

had some company for dinner on monday night and made a nice meal but had leftover desserts. Was going to send the desserts home with the company - but didnt. And then ate it all myself over the last 2 days............ OK so - now everything is gone and I guess I can start fresh again.


Im doing some really great exercising - and then dumbly reward myself by eating poorly.
Have to break that paradym.

enjoy the day all - its off for a 20 mile bike ride down the coast today.

going to do some research and work on the nutrition end of the fitness equation. Im getting lots of exercise ------- dont see very much body change. a little but not what Im hoping for.

I know my eating is the culprit. Wont starve myself on one of these crazy deprivation diets but may look at finding low carb healthy snacks to eat when Im eating out of boredom. Thats probably my biggest problem......... My body likes carbs way too much.


Have a great weekend all

Hi everyone. I'm trying a new goal for a week or two by leaving my comfort zone. I never, ever chat on any threads - I guess due to my reserve & quiet nature. Here's to emoticon

I'm feeling very lazy this week. Hubby and I are on week 1 of our 2 week vacation. We went to the beach one day, but other than that we've lounged around the pool & eaten out a few times. I hope I don't feel lazy for all 16 days.

Have a great evening.

Bob - hoping recovery comes quickly ----------------------- and that you feel better soon.



Gym time - going to swing those kettlebells.................. patiently waiting for results.


Aug will be my eat better month................. July is my birthday month ( going to be 61 tomorrow) so I decided on making workouts my July focus - in order to really make a body change - the eating has to go along with the workouts. Always a challenge.

I spent the weekend at my Dad's and we visited a home for him but the people were too sick there. He is 93 but always worked out and ate healthy so he walks without assistance and still does his own yard work We'll check out another place soon. I went out to eat almost every day last week so I hope I didn't gain too much and that I'll be able to get back on track this week.

Challange:
2 weeks with this uncomfortable stocking I have to wear following minor surgery(Endovenous Laser) . This procedure aids in blood flow to your lower legs and hopefully Will hopefullyhelp the heart and my workouts and I'll be able to run longer!!!
No pain or even discomfort just this "lovely looking and restraining leg wear".
Enjoy your week-end and take a dip in the ocean/pool for me.

kicking off another weekend. Not much planned for this weekend - except a high school reunion on saturday. Goig to enjoy seeing many old frieds.


Been making some bad eating choices for a few days. Clearly emotional eating which is one thing I have not conquered.................... will have to work on that some more.

Enjoy the day - this girl is headed to the gym to swing those kettlebells.

some storms last night.......................... emoticon very loud


Going to pick up my Mom who will be spending overnight with me. Happy to have her. Should be a fun time.


Day off from working out....................... although a day with my Mom is a kind of mental workout in some ways

I believe weight loss is more about how much you eat - and exercise is more about toning.
