Okay--story time. Imagine you are on vacation--you FINALLY get a chance to have a nice hot bath in the big jacuzzi--and it is wonderful to have all that nice hot water. But you are in it a little too long and you get a bit woozy. So you decide t... Read more

I am feeling better--not quite at 100% but lots better. I lost some weight while sick--food didn't taste good--and I am trying to NOT regain that weight. Let this sickness be good for something--LOL!! Still not back to exercising--the work sche... Read more
Still dragging
Friday, October 12, 2012      1 comments

So here it is, Oct. 12 and I am still dragging somewhat. I got to the gym twice this week--first time since 9/22!! But I don't have much stamina--so both classes were tough. But--the classes I taught this week were good--well behaved kids make i... Read more
Went to the doctor--and you are saying "finally!"
Monday, October 01, 2012      5 comments

While I can be stubborn, I do listen to reason and I did go to the doctor today. I was able to get an appointment between the 2 sessions I was teaching so I had no real excuse. I do have a good case of bronchitis but the antibiotic should clea... Read more

Why I am still trying to lose weight
Thursday, September 20, 2012      3 comments

The 5% challenge asks us to articulate why we want to lose weight. I am in pretty good shape--in the 150s after being at 186 at one time. One friend says I look fine and should quit. Well--I am NOT at a healthy BMI--I was to get below 150 so I c... Read more

I have stepped on the scale a lot this week--but not counting anything till official tomorrow! I have made some good things--you can eat a LOT of some veggies with almost no calories. I have also made some poor choices--can you say no lunch and ... Read more
Starting the "Big Push"
Saturday, September 01, 2012      2 comments

Ihave lost a lot of weight--30 pounds, to be exact. But I have been "stuck" at about 155 since Christmas. I've gone up a bit, lost that but never gotten lower than 155. My healthy BMI wants to me weigh 154--and I want to be a NORMAL BMI. So--as... Read more

The DDs are gone--one back to school and the other off on a 4 month internship. We got them both to where they needed to go and have come home. (Oldest DD is married so on her own for quite awhile.) The house is awfully quiet. So I am usin... Read more
Garage Sale--done and successful!
Sunday, August 05, 2012      1 comments

I have been trying to declutter--lots of evidence that a clean, clutter-free home gives us a more clutter-free life. So I have BOXES to sell. We did lots of good signs and had 2 days of garage sale--with temps in the 90s! I never have good ... Read more
Home and doing fine
Friday, July 27, 2012      4 comments

DD3 is home--has taken over the recliner, asks for help to get up and down but she isn't in pain and seems to be doing very well. The one more night spent at the hospital made a big difference in her color, her moving speed and her attitude. I s... Read more
Appendix out--what a day!
Thursday, July 26, 2012      2 comments

No, not mine--my DD3's. She complained of nausea and a sore spot on one side of her abdomen. We went to the ER--at 11 AM. By 7:30, it had been diagnosed (they finally realized I was right!) and it was removed and she was in her room by 11 PM. ... Read more
Really tired out today
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      4 comments

I am tired of 90+ temperatures. I know most of the US is tired of it as well. I did get to exercise--had a great Zumba class--after 20 minutes, I knew I was REALLY going to know I'd been there. THEN I stayed for the body sculpt class. I didn't ... Read more
Workouts--now are "wow"--Look what I can do
Saturday, July 14, 2012      5 comments

I have been at this "working out" for awhile now. I can now handle most of an hour class with weights. I can run most of the 3.1 miles. Today, I had the Body Sculpt class at the gym and, while I could not do all the sets, I did most of them. A... Read more
