Daily Stretching
Sunday, March 27, 2016      7 comments

I talk a lot about what a benefit daily stretching has been for me. If I could turn back time, I would have had my parents instill two habits in me from the time I was a child. Do stretching/yoga every day, and avoid sugar! So, you want t... Read more

Lots of strange and wonderful things happened this week. The scale was scary but kind. I ended the week down 4 lbs (at one point I was down 6 lbs and feeling blech, so I bumped up my calories for a few days) and I hit the 20 lbs lost mark! Th... Read more

I'm so glad I didn't push myself yesterday. I would love to tell you all the amazing stuff that happened for me today, but I have a 100 lb hunk of love curled up on my bed, wanting some back massages. ... Read more
Today was a 1 out of 10 day
Thursday, March 24, 2016      7 comments

I've never been one to hop out of bed refreshed and ready to take on the day. My biggest success since starting on spark people came from joining the Fibromyalgia and Exercise team and joining the Team goal to do gentle stretching 10 minutes a ... Read more
Patience
Wednesday, March 23, 2016      5 comments

Patience has never been my forte. It's interesting that is what my dog training homework is focused on. It's nice that we are working on it together, the dogs and I. We are working on a "down stay". I'm supposed to throw in some distractions,... Read more

I saw a 2 on my scale this morning.

I know that weight fluctuates, so I can't truthfully make the statement today, but soon I will be able to make a promise to myself that I will never see the 300s on that scale again! I celebrated by taking a walk over to a friends house wit... Read more
My heart rate monitor came in today
Thursday, March 17, 2016      3 comments

It's easy to use, and was interesting to see how high my heart rate got. I needed a watch for timing my dog walks, and this was in the price range I would have paid for just a watch so, score! We will call this my prize for losing my first 5% ... Read more

I got a peek at the fabulous life today
Wednesday, March 16, 2016      6 comments

For the first time in 6 months, I made a doctors appointment. For several months I didn't even try to reschedule them, as I knew I wasn't well enough to drive confidently on most days. Not only thatt, but I made my first dinner date with a frie... Read more
