Out of Commission This Week
Thursday, November 19, 2009      10 comments

I must have overdone my activities this past weekend because now I'm paying the price for it. Initially I felt only mild discomfort and I was able to go to water aerobics Monday and Tuesday. By the time Wednesday rolled around, I was so stiff ... Read more
Changing Up My Workouts
Friday, November 13, 2009      5 comments

This week I was forced by the weather to "change up" my workouts. I did a great water aerobics workout on Monday but the weather changed, due to a passing hurricane. This kept me out of the water until today. Since I was a bit sore, from my 1... Read more

Today I managed to do 15 minutes (without any stops) of high step water jogging. This is the second time I've been able to do this! I know that I may be sore (quads and butt) tomorrow but I'm amazed at the increase in my stamina. I can do exe... Read more
Take the time to count your blessings

With stores pushing the Christmas season into October it is often hard to keep our focus on the here and now. Sometimes it seems like the here and now is nothing short of depressing! The economy has tanked, gas prices are rising, healthy food ... Read more

I made it to water aerobics 5 times this week! Yay! I capped off my week with a 2 mile walk with our local Spark team followed by walking the mall for an hour and a half. Altogether, I spent a over two hours in motion! The down side is that... Read more
Trying Something Different This Week
Thursday, November 05, 2009      9 comments

Since I seem to be so full of energy this week (I don't know where this is coming from!), I decided to try doing a water aerobics class every day (a total of 5 classes). Today was day four and I'm feeling fairly good! So far I'm not sore (keep... Read more
I feel like the Eveready Bunny today!
Tuesday, November 03, 2009      4 comments

Since I'm having adjustment problems with the time change anyway, I decided to get up and get started at 6:30a.m. this morning. (That was after waking at 5:30 a.m. and lying there for an hour!) I started with packing my gym bag, and fixing bre... Read more
What are your November goals?
Monday, November 02, 2009      3 comments

I can't believe it's November already, can you? The fall colors, the cooler air and the impending holidays make November a pretty exciting month! It's also an opportunity for a fresh start. We can do this; we owe it to ourselves to commit t... Read more

Today being Halloween, I want to take the opportunity to wish all of my Spark friends a happy day. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of daily life, I just need to pause and appreciate the gifts (treats) I've been given - some of those gifts be... Read more
Good Workout Today
Thursday, October 29, 2009      5 comments

Today our water aerobics class did something a little different. We did interval training - in the water! I did really well too! I wasn't out of breath and I was able to keep up with the instructor. Of course she's 33 and really buff, and us... Read more
Here it is, Wednesday already!
Wednesday, October 28, 2009      2 comments

I have to say that I've been doing well since I decided to re-dedicate myself to health and hold myself accountable for my exercise and what I put into my mouth. I feel very good about it and the time is going faster than I thought was possible... Read more
Stress Takes A Toll
Sunday, October 25, 2009      4 comments

This past week has been a very stressful one for me. I have accepted the fact that there are many "stressors" that I can't control and this week was chock full of them. That said, I must admit that I didn't do my best job at controlling emotio... Read more

You know those times where you put yourself in an impossible situation? Well, last night I refused to let myself be drawn into one of those situations. The old me would have been sucked right into a set of circumstances that would have be detr... Read more
Mixed Feelings Today
Sunday, October 11, 2009      4 comments

My mother died 24 years ago today. I have very mixed feelings where she was concerned and am currently trying to make sense of it. She was very smart and educated for a women of her generation but I don't think the members of her family treate... Read more
I made good choices last night
Thursday, October 08, 2009      4 comments

I'm pleased with the choices that I made at last night's team dinner. I ate lots of salad and I chopped up some beets instead of using salad dressing. I did eat some pulled pork (with BBQ sauce of course) and a piece of garlic bread. Yummy! ... Read more
