Ah, Cindy Crawford. The person whose body I was meant to have if God hadn't given me little legs. Many, many moons ago I used to exercise along to a Cindy Crawford VHS. That VHS is lost in the annals of time but I remember she had a trainer... Read more

'Transform your whole self' - Who can resist that as an opening gambit? Today's DVD is a 'bodywisdom media' production - 'Tai Chi for Beginners' (2010). I bought this online when I realised that I simply couldn't fit a 90 minute class int... Read more

Today's DVD wasn't as dusty as some and the main reason for that is its optimistic title - '10 Minute Solution'(2006). We can all find 10 mins....right? There are lots of titles in the '10 Minute Series' from various presenters...or maybe ... Read more

Davina - UK TV presenter - quirky, funny, caring, realistic - a bit of an icon and very popular when 'Davina - The Box Set' (2005) was given to me by my then 26 year old daughter. The Box Set contains 2 DVDs - Power of 3 and My Three 30 Mi... Read more

Ummm - Rebounding. The PT Bouncer was appropriated long ago by my sons and has been languishing in the garage. Hence I needed to give it a good clean before bringing it indoors to use it alongside the DVD - in itself a nice little work out... Read more

In order NOT to indulge in unnecessary spending on exercise items that may become defunct, I've set myself a 'Dust Off the CD/DVD' Challenge each day to Christmas. I confess that there's a row of them! There will be no mercy. I sh... Read more

It seems a little strange doing this without the 'Feast' bit as a bonus! I may need to make myself a mini-Thanksgiving Supper to celebrate with my friends across the Pond. However, the exercise is going down pretty well and I motivated mys... Read more

Yeay!! 10 days in and working hard. Yesterday was my first 'fitbit' day and I probably earned a load of extra steps trotting over to my iPad to look at the numbers build up. Still some things I don't understand such as 'Activity Minutes', w... Read more

Excuse me? What happened to Days 5-7? I ate. Off plan; Off target; Off sensible. By last night I felt Off colour; was Off hand with my DH. This morning was weekly weigh-in. I'd put weight ON. For the first hour this am I was d... Read more

My Flylady challenge today was to clean my kitchen cupboard fronts. Oh, my heart sank. 27 of them plus 5 drawers. Found myself doing a bit of inner whining like a grumpy teen...'Do I have to?' Of course I don't. Who's to know? I could... Read more

Ok - Day 2 was more Feast than Fit. Enough said. However... Started Day 3 with Coach Nicole's kick box vid. Worked from home today so added Jessica Smith's Cardio Boot Camp Boogie. Whoah...I could feel I've let my fitness slip so I mo... Read more

Grandson's first birthday party next week. I mail-ordered a dress and took a chance on the size down. It fits and I would be able to lift the Little Guy up in it cos there's a fair bit of stretch.....but it's a close fit. There is time to ... Read more

Friday, October 03, 2014      2 comments

My planned schedule has been interrupted for a few days because of volume of work. I've managed short bouts of exercise on a couple of days but mostly spent spare time mentally and physically washed out. Luckily, there has been no weight ga... Read more
