Today I visited the ortho dr. about my recent knee difficulties. He took x-rays and reported "You have alot of arthritis in your knees." This was no news flash for me. I guess it is good that it is not worse. He prescribed Celebrex, lubrica... Read more

I managed to complete 20 minutes today on the elliptical without ankle or knee pain. I have been resting these joints for the past month. It is amazing how much strength I have lost in this time. My legs were sore after the workout! Tomorrow... Read more

I am officially at a new low, or should I say high? After losing 46 pounds and determined to keep it off, I am back up 25! I kept it off for a year, and then slowly it crept back up! It is difficult to maintain the intensity over time. I hav... Read more

Dieting while on vacation
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      1 comments

When I am working, I think losing weight will be easier when I am on vacation. More time to work out and fix healthy meals. Somehow, it has not worked out that way! I am actually looking forward to going back to work on Monday and having a re... Read more
