I upped mine for the Gardening Season. IT seems that my "Cardio" activities really are "strength Training" more than cardio. This morning, I put together about a 40 minute strength training program. As I get stronger and can do all of t... Read more

My memory has pieced some things together, this morning--as I lay stiffly in bed after resting for two days with some stretching and minor exercise: I have been buying unbasted, turkey thighs, breasts, and necks at the store this year, since th... Read more
Not Consistently Ready to Jog
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      3 comments

I am going to start carrying weight when I walk and prepare for jogging this way. It feels right to go this route. This will help my knees, lungs, and muscles without the stresses of real jogging. I like the running shoes I got. I had ... Read more

About 3AM the dog and cat went out. The dog put her nose down and wandered off. The cat stayed out until about 7 AM. The dog is on the back porch this morning. The chickens are out for the day, I did a bunch of stretches in bed--my hip... Read more
Weird Dream

I'm up and my adrenalin is still going, so I'm on SparkPeople. That will teach me to not go over my carbs that far again--bad dreams. Maybe a warning. I did hear a couple of odd noises, but that could be the new stray cat. As soon as a Tom c... Read more

Sort of fun weather. I hauled some tossed-bottles out of the woods today, along with some old tires. The puppy is worn out! I am too! I'm gonna watch a movie or something. A bunch of small dogs, or coyotes, started yipping as I was in ... Read more

I am going to start bicycling at least a mile a day--hilly country, as cross-training as I start a job/walk 5K SparkTEam. Eventually, I want to be able to bicycle to the closest store and back--about 9 miles round-trip with two territorial dogs... Read more
5K Walk, my last few walks
Monday, March 14, 2011      2 comments

It has been interesting to note how an over-dose of cooked fats slows my walk. I think I'll stay with this challenge, starting over and adding some jog as I get stronger. It is good feedback for me.... Read more

Well, my cat's cat, her stray-cat friend, was found dead by the road a few days ago. My cat was looking over that way a lot and making sure I kept plenty of food in the bowl for him, and finally, I figured I'd better bring the cat over so she w... Read more

Blogs of members on this team really helped me this morning, to realize that I am still OK. I even ordered a used copy of one quoted book. I keep on promising myself that I am reducing being so cerebral; I take up a lot of my life finding... Read more

May you be blessed to live beyond digesting all that stuff. May you be blessed to live long enough to not catch that bus. May you be blessed to live as you learn to respect the cat. May you be blessed to live in spite of your rambunctious ... Read more

A Hard Freeze Last Night
Monday, March 07, 2011      5 comments

Local predictions were that it would not freeze last night. At 2 AM it was freezing. I thought about covering my small cherry and peach, but they are so small that not asking them to produce fruit this year is actually a good idea. Being on a... Read more
