Upping My Game Despite Limitations
Saturday, August 10, 2013      4 comments

Wow, I feel like I'm doing great with my August #backontrack challenge. I've been keeping up with tracking my Other Goals every day. No more thinking about it every three or four days and trying to remember back to what I actually did four ... Read more
Life Is Good (I Just Need to Accept It)
Friday, August 09, 2013      4 comments

This morning at the gym I gave myself permission to do a gentle workout. This is somewhat odd for me. There are plenty of areas in my life where I lack discipline. I am far too permissive with myself, and I know that to be a problem an... Read more
A Big Decision, My New Calorie Range, and Feeding My Body Well
Thursday, August 08, 2013      8 comments

Well, yesterday I took the plunge and officially updated my weight loss goal on SparkPeople. It became rather obvious to me after two months of "flatlining" that I won't be making the goal of being 130 pounds by the end of August. Some... Read more
The Next Chapter
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      6 comments

DH and I have been discussing the next chapter in our lives. This summer, we have had a real taste of being "empty nesters" while our son is away at camp. We've lived in this house since the year our son started school (he went into Junior ... Read more

This is what my FitBit looks like after 35 minutes on the treadmill. All those leaves mean lots of activity. But that is not all. I had my weekly personal train... Read more
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gym
Monday, August 05, 2013      7 comments

Well, actually, it wasn't funny and it happened when we got to the gym yesterday. Today was a holiday Monday in Ontario. It's one of those optional-type holidays where corporations are closed for business, but some stores stay open. S... Read more

Sunday, August 04, 2013      2 comments

Well, we didn't go to the fitness centre at the hotel this morning after all. But I'm kind of glad about that, because it means now that we are home again we will visit our regular gym and I can get off to a good start on week 2 of the August #b... Read more
Busy Day at My Son's Camp
Saturday, August 03, 2013      2 comments

Today has been another very busy day -- too busy to visit the hotel's fitness centre this morning. But we again did a lot of walking (and climbing) today. Unfortunately, I also ate a lot today. Not terrible things, and I did make some good... Read more
Morning Calm

It's still early in the morning and I just finished working out. This hotel has a nice fitness centre with Precor cardio equipment. Although it is a different model than the one I use at the gym, the functions on the treadmill were familiar. ... Read more
August Challenge, Day 1
Thursday, August 01, 2013      1 comments

Today we are travelling again, so we made a point of getting up early to go to the gym because quite a lot of the day was spent sitting in the car -- though we did stop to shop at an outlet mall. Our first stop was the Under Armor outlet a... Read more
NSV Virtual Par-tay
Wednesday, July 31, 2013      3 comments

Today I was my own worst enemy, giving in to the temptations that were sent my way -- and even seeking some out for myself. I've eaten at the top of my calorie range today, though I tell myself it was within my power to forgo sweet treats ... Read more

The Completely Bearable Lightness of Being
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      4 comments

We are just coming up on one year of weekly personal training sessions. The great news is that we are now going to continue with our sessions beyond the one year we signed up for. A couple of months ago I had thought it would be fine to gi... Read more
Tales of the Gym
Monday, July 29, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday for my workout at the gym I forgot to take my towels. I usually have a small towel I carry with me in the gym for when I sweat during cardio, but it can come in handy to sit or lie on when I'm using the weight machines. Along wit... Read more
A Happy Saturday
Sunday, July 28, 2013      1 comments

I had such a great day with my husband yesterday. Lately we've been doing a lot more "date-like" things, with my son being away at camp all summer (he is a camper with some CIT duties, so he is there all summer and he is loving it). But usu... Read more
