For those of you who know me personally, you know how stressful my life has been for the last year - starting with my daughter's near fatal auto accident and followed by one event after another. Yesterday was no exception. At one point I just ... Read more
When All Else Fails, Just Walk!
Friday, April 23, 2010      4 comments

I have been unable to attend my water classes for the last two days due to a scheduling conflict. I was trying to figure out how to squeeze in some sort of workout when I thought, I can just do some walking. You don't have to do a fancy workou... Read more

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      4 comments

I was a tiny bit stiff from my workout yesterday but it wasn't too bad! Even our instructor said she was sore from yesterday's workout so we decided to repeat the same workout. It turned out to be another kick butt workout and our legs felt li... Read more
Water Exercise Kicked Butt Today
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      5 comments

Today our water aerobics instructor decided to ramp it up a little and kick some butt. We did some heavy duty water jogging. In fact, when I got out of the water at the end of the class, my legs felt like lead weights! It has been a very long... Read more
Rain Finally!

It's cloudy outside and in places in the area, it has been raining. We got some nice steady rain last night. When I went outside this morning, everything looked fresh and green. Much of the ugly green-yellow pollen has been washed off of thin... Read more
Nothing Like A Little Pampering To Make You Feel GREAT!
Thursday, April 15, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday on the way home from the doctor (after a skin biopsy) I was a bit down. I knew that I'd have to stay out of the water for the last 2 classes this week until my biopsy gets a good scab. Exercise class is an outlet for stress and also... Read more
Always Learning Something New
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      6 comments

Today I had an appointment with the dermatologist for my annual check up. I had a little funny looking red spot on my leg which my doctor biopsied. It means that I have to stay out of the water for the rest of the week but to me, it's worth it... Read more

Motivation Through A Team Challenge

When The Scale Won't Budge
Sunday, April 11, 2010      5 comments

It's depressing when you track every bite of food, measure out your portions and weigh them, exercise until you drop and still that silly scale won't budge! This has happened to me so many times that I've had to develop a different philosophy a... Read more
Sometimes Just Being Quiet Helps Me Absorb the Peace
Friday, April 09, 2010      4 comments

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of every day life we feel the need to just stop. Stop and absorb some quiet and the peace that quiet brings. I'm looking forward to visiting Bok Towers in the next few weeks for that reason. One of the membe... Read more
