Learning to be flexible
Wednesday, December 10, 2014      12 comments

I had every intention of going to the gym this evening, but my workout buddies told me this morning that they weren't going. I'm not doing any strength training right this moment (I know, I need to focus on ST more), but I was going to hit the... Read more
Calling it a night, early!
Tuesday, December 09, 2014      9 comments

Was up late last night (had "hairs"), and ended up getting a less restful sleep than I'd hoped for. I did great yesterday, but today, I didn't get much activity in - did quite a bit of cleaning, but I really need to get more consistent about wo... Read more
Not as good as yesterday, but still pretty good
Monday, December 08, 2014      9 comments

I'm on a roll! 2 days of mostly good choices, AND exercise! Had a couple yogurts today (1 was more a "dessert" than a yogurt, but it's better on my system than the ice cream I WANTED to eat!), need to remember to get plain Greek yogurt next ti... Read more
Today was a good day

I didn't eat too many processed foods - a slice of bread with my lunch, a little bit of dehydrated potato flakes (aka "mashed potatoes"), and a couple of cookies. Wait - powdered coffee creamer counts as a "processed" food too, doesn't it? *sn... Read more

I thought losing weight was going to help with all of the aches and pains I have been suffering the last 20+ years. I've had back pains since I was 8, and it seems like they pile up like dominoes on a regular basis. When I realized I was SO ov... Read more

I JUST got my smartphone turned back on a few days ago. Today, it started conking out at weird times. Just kinda rebooting itself, I guess. I'm going to order a replacement online (cheaper than in store AND I don't have to fight Walmart! WIN... Read more
Part 2
Thursday, December 04, 2014      6 comments

I actually ended up doing better than I thought I would! Still have a few calories in the "bank" (too full now that I have them - funny isn't it?), got in a good bit of exercise and some NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity...Tracking?). Managed to eat... Read more
Why do the hungry days come after the crazy ones?
Thursday, December 04, 2014      5 comments

I haven't done ANY exercise to speak of (little bit of NEAT, but nothing to brag about), but I've had one of those days where I am RAVENOUS! Have been all day! Well, not all day, but I was still full when my normal mid-morning snack rolled aro... Read more
Day 2 December
Tuesday, December 02, 2014      5 comments

I didn't do as great as I'd hoped to do today. I only managed to get in a little bit of exercise (12 minutes of belly dancing), and I ate a fast food lunch that nearly broke the (caloric) bank! But, I DID get in a few servings of freggies and ... Read more
December - A new month!
Monday, December 01, 2014      8 comments

I tried to start this month off on the right foot. I got up this morning and did 10 minutes of belly dancing and 15 minutes of Sweating to the Oldies (time constraints caused me to stop), so I felt that was a strong start to the day! I didn't ... Read more
Ooops! Can anyone say "DO OVER"?
Sunday, November 30, 2014      6 comments

My buddies were out of town this week, so I watched their pup for them. As a "Thank you" they picked me up some chocolate truffles. I didn't feel good today, so I managed to eat all 8 of them between 1pm and 7pm! ... Read more
Making strides
Saturday, November 29, 2014      7 comments

I decided that since I've been more active lately, I'd try doing "Sweatin' to the Oldies 3" workout video of Richard Simmons'. I haven't done it since I was in middle school, but thought maybe I could do the 90 minute video - I thought wrong! L... Read more
Gotta get back on track
Friday, November 28, 2014      11 comments

I enjoyed yesterday. Mom and I were able to cook a lot of stuff on Wednesday, so yesterday wasn't too crazy. AND we got to use a neighbor's oven so that helped! I started out pretty good, but ended up going dessert crazy. I think my biggest ... Read more

I didn't get an official gym workout done (too much to do) but I did A LOT of housecleaning! And baking! I'm not gonna stress over it - still have more to do tomorrow before everyone gets here LOL I'm not sure I've ever mentioned how NUTS my ... Read more
Walk got rained out
Tuesday, November 25, 2014      5 comments

I was supposed to take all my canine friends on a walk today. HOWEVER, it was rainy and gray almost all day. If I could take just Bear, I could carry an umbrella (not that it'd do much good LOL), but with 3 dogs wanting to go it just wasn't go... Read more
