Walking Like You Wouldn't Believe
Saturday, June 29, 2013      2 comments

Our hotel is walking distance from the Eiffel Tower, and today we made it as far as the Arc de Triomphe. This in spite of sleeping in until 11 AM (which is what our bodies still think of as 5:00 in the morning -- jet lag is a real drag). We... Read more
Vacation Follies
Friday, June 28, 2013      4 comments

Being on vacation in Paris, I am finding it a little bit tough to eat right. I mean, I'm still tracking as best I can, but how many calories does pain au chocolat have, anyway? And despite my best intentions to have "a salad" for dinner, it was ... Read more

New haircut. New glasses. Size 8 skinny jeans getting a bit baggy, but I am still wearing them because they are high-waisted Levi's. In a month or so I will invest in another pair in a smaller size. ... Read more

On Friday nights I gather with a group of women who knit at a local yarn store. If you are a knitter, you know what I'm talking about; but if you are not a knitter, you might not see the attraction. But it's just like any gathering of like-minde... Read more
What to Wear on Vacation
Thursday, June 20, 2013      2 comments

A big trip that DH and I have been planning for months is now only days away. I find myself fretting about what clothes to pack. Well, it's not even so much the clothes as it is shoes. I want to be a bit dressier than usual, so I am not tak... Read more

Today I: - made an agreement with PT that my legs are great and we are going to concentrate on upper body for the rest of my training time - did a set of dumbbell rows at 10 pounds, and when PT deemed that was too light I got handed th... Read more
Could This Be What Did It?

The plateau -- that awful grinding entire month of May where my weight went up and down the same two pounds -- is well and truly behind me. I am seeing weight loss like I used to, earlier in the year. To recap: Over the course of May I... Read more

The sad truth is, I'm not brave enough to post a photo of me in a two-piece here. Size 6 does not look the same in a bathing suit as it does in clothes. Also, we've had really grey weather so far this year, with very few sunny days, and I h... Read more
Success Story
Thursday, June 13, 2013      7 comments

So the "success story" photos that were taken with our trainer are now part of an official posting on the Facebook Page for our gym. (I'm not sure if the image will get printed up as a poster*, but the format makes it look like it could be.) ... Read more
FitBit Day 3, A Review
Monday, June 10, 2013      1 comments

For the purposes of this blog entry, "FitBit" means the company, not the device. If I am talking specifically about the device, I will say "my FitBit" or "the FitBit device". So, FitBit. I had no idea what to expect of FitBit; I just k... Read more
Putting the Worst-Plateau-Ever Behind Me
Saturday, June 08, 2013      3 comments

I'm going to do a post on my new FitBit after I've used it for a few days. I am really liking it so far (just one day in) but I still have a lot to learn about using it and syncing with SparkPeople. What I really want to blog about today is... Read more
Me in a Two-Piece Bathing Suit? You Bet!
Thursday, June 06, 2013      1 comments

I haven't worn a two-piece bathing suit since I was a teenager. In my final year of high school, I had fun going to Florida for Spring Break with a friend the same age. We were supervised by her older brother and his buddy, who honestly did... Read more

Today I: - was 145.2 on the scale, which is very close to my all-time (this time) low of 145.0 - did a set of pushups on the Smith machine with the bar set at the fifth hole from the bottom - then did two sets of pushups at the fourt... Read more

Well, it turns out the cat food that's disappearing from the porch isn't being eaten during surreptitious visits from our missing cat. So that bit of hope is gone. Our cat is still missing. The food is being eaten by a big, fat, black-... Read more
