Tennessee Fitness Spa
Friday, May 22, 2009      1 comments

I'm back from the "spa" and it was a great time. I plan to try to go back sometime in Fall, staying for a whole week--I just have to figure out how to fit it into my schedule. Here's a normal day at the place: 6:45 Breakfast. You have cho... Read more
TOM, you're not my friend.
Wednesday, May 06, 2009      2 comments

TOM, oh TOM, you're back again. You leave for a couple months and then return, with all the charmlessness of an unwelcome houseguest. You demand foods I haven't eaten in months--nachos dripping in cheese, red meat. And, somehow, despite myself, ... Read more

At some point last Fall, after I became comfortable exercising and was starting to see results in my health and weight loss efforts, I started fantasizing about going to a luxury spa and being pampered and working my butt off all on the same vac... Read more

Warning: this blog is really for me to think through my goals for May. I doubt it will be interesting reading for anyone else! ... Read more
What not to eat

My DH and I took his truck to the garage and went out to Perkins for breakfast this morning. I can't believe how bad the meal would have been for us if we'd eaten everything... Read more
True Confessions
Tuesday, April 07, 2009      2 comments

It's true confession time for me. The last few weeks, I've been exercising a lot, but not tracking my eating very well. It's been showing on the scale, too; I've crept up a couple of pounds lately. And I get that stupid mindset of "I walked thre... Read more
Miracle of life!

I was outside, playing with our dog, when I heard a cow across the creek make an odd noise. "Water" was gushing out of her--I thought she was urinating, but then I realized that her water had just broken! I watched for awhile, as she lay down, s... Read more
Great Weekend
Monday, March 30, 2009      0 comments

I had a really wonderful weekend. I DID do the 5K walk, despite the fact that my back was acting up last week. I came in somewhere in the middle of the pack of walkers, and felt really good about it. I didn't even feel any new muscles the next d... Read more
My mom

The women in this picture are my mom (on the right) and her friend Norma. I don't know Norma's age, but Mom will be 81 this coming Saturday. If I can use her as a role model f... Read more

I just put out an invitation to my East Tennessee Sparkers team to ask people to join me in a 5K walk/run. It's a leap for me. Even though I'm definitely NOT running, the idea of going out there and walking is intimidating. Like, what if I'm the... Read more

I was cruising SP for articles I haven't read and found this series on Mastering the Mysteries of Motivation by Coach Dean.

PMS and food
Wednesday, March 11, 2009      2 comments

It doesn't happen every month, but there are certainly some months when my "resistance muscle" (as Beck would call it) is severely taxed by my urge to eat. It's like somebody suddenly dropped an extra weight on a machine at the gym and it feels ... Read more

I just read this article and it was an "Aha" moment for me.

The best laid plans
Monday, March 02, 2009      2 comments

You can tell from my "goal tracker" in last week's blog that I didn't get past Monday with the cardio workouts. Tuesday morning they called from my Mom's place and told me they were transferring her to the hospital with this virus that's been go... Read more
Closer to goals.
Saturday, February 21, 2009      2 comments

Slowly but surely, I'm getting there. I dropped another 1.8 pounds this week, and I fit into a pair of previously-unwearable pants that I bought a few years ago and promptly grew out of. A little more than 2 more pounds and I'll give myself that... Read more
