Yesterday and Today
Saturday, July 27, 2013      0 comments

My arms are sore, but again it's for a good reason. I had another fantastic Friday session with my personal trainer. I have stopped working regularly on my bench press, but when the personal trainer had me do it I insisted on going up to 55... Read more
So That Explains It
Thursday, July 25, 2013      3 comments

So, it's not all in my head. Well, what I mean is, it's not ALL in my head. I discovered a minor medical issue that might explain why I've felt so out of sorts the past couple of days. Not seeing symptoms until today, I was not aware of a p... Read more
Feeling Unsettled
Wednesday, July 24, 2013      3 comments

It's summer, but the exciting part of the vacation is over. At the same time, there is no school schedule to work around. What little routine my husband's work creates is changeable enough that it provides no anchor. It's hard to get u... Read more

So, I'm beginning to think my body likes being at the weight it is now. Sparkers know how much of a change two or three pounds can make, but to the rest of the world, there is no real difference between 142-pound me and 144- to 145-pound me... Read more
Stormy Weather
Saturday, July 20, 2013      2 comments

We had terrible storms in our area yesterday and last night. There were a lot of problems with trees down and long power outages in our city and other cities nearby. Our neighbourhood didn't do too badly, though, with about a half-hour power out... Read more
Extra Training Friday
Friday, July 19, 2013      2 comments

Today we did some interesting exercises during my "extra" personal training session. I asked for a core/lower body workout, since I had done upper body on Tuesday, so my personal trainer (PT) got creative. I did a few things with the medici... Read more

People struggle with a lot of different things. Sometimes I read about other people's mental struggles and I am amazed at what their minds put them through. Like the locker room at the gym. Reading about people's self-consciousness whe... Read more
Vacation Photos
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      2 comments

Dunno if anyone wanted to see some of our vacation photos. I mostly picked the ones my husband took of me in front of memorable tourist sites. I have other photos that are more meaningful based on the places we walked and visited, but they might... Read more
Personal Training Tuesday
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      2 comments

This morning I had my first personal training session since BEFORE we went on our trip to Europe. We did upper body, since I had neglected weight training over the past two weeks. (I tried, but the equipment I needed just wasn't available in the... Read more
Shopping in Europe -- or, Trouble with Sizing
Friday, July 12, 2013      2 comments

Trying to find clothes and shoes that fit in three different European countries was a very interesting experience. In France, in Paris, we did not shop in an area of huge megastores. It was more like a high street, with small stores ranging... Read more
Vacation Summary
Thursday, July 11, 2013      1 comments

Well, we finally found some healthier food in Berlin. We were very spoiled in London because the restaurant chain Pret a Manger is everywhere, and they have fresh, healthy food served in a cafeteria style, but with the calorie count posted on ev... Read more
The Challenges of Berlin
Monday, July 08, 2013      3 comments

Berlin is, shall we say, challenging to Healthy Living. We are not doing as much walking as we were in either Paris or London. In London, so much of our walking was just using the Tube stations, which had many connecting train lines at diff... Read more
Busy London
Friday, July 05, 2013      4 comments

Wanted to add a quick entry and make sure I post it this time. (I keep typing posts and abandoning them in order to get on with the day.) I've (re)discovered English bacon. Some food is just better here. Then again, last night we tried one ... Read more
London Calling
Tuesday, July 02, 2013      2 comments

We made it to London! The hotel in London has a better gym than the one in Paris. However, I did have to get used to doing my treadmill workout in kph rather than mph. It took me a short time to make the connection as to why the treadmill s... Read more
Sunday in Paris
Sunday, June 30, 2013      1 comments

Paris on Sunday is different from what I have described before. On Sunday Paris is much more relaxed. Any stores that open at all (and that's less than half of them) will open later on a Sunday morning. For example, this morning we anxiously awa... Read more
