weight gain, winter predictor?
Saturday, November 21, 2020      8 comments

UGH! Doing the 5% challenge and I think I have it backwards and have gained again this week. I have been seeing some fat squirrels running around. I heard that you can tell how hard of a winter it will be by looking at the wild life - fat squirr... Read more

sUC2Hg I found this channel on youtube for the couch to 5k program on the treadmill. I have done weeks 1 and 2 -- one with the lady coach and the other with the guy ... Read more
Power of 1
Wednesday, November 11, 2020      4 comments

I heard a lecture yesterday about the power of 1 -- focus on making on change at a time. But the one to pick is the one that will have the most impact and will make other changes fall into place. Also that it takes about 66 days to make a new ha... Read more
Leaves leaves and more leaves
Sunday, November 08, 2020      6 comments

I have so much to do and my motivation is almost zilch. We are having some warm weather and I really need to get those leaves raked ( I have a huge yard on a wooded lot). Plus the trees are a mixture of red and white oak - this means one drops t... Read more
Chilly morning
Tuesday, November 03, 2020      7 comments

I woke up early this morning and when I step outside I found myself heading down the road to the lake. I was hoping for a sunrise photo --- every time I am on time for a sunrise or sunset there is no clouds. So, I did not get a good photo of a s... Read more
5% challenge
Sunday, November 01, 2020      2 comments

I received the email about the missed weigh-in and wondered if I actually forgot to do that because last week time went into a black hole for me and I lost track of what day it was. I did post my weigh-in and this morning I took a look at ... Read more
Where did the week go?
Saturday, October 31, 2020      3 comments

I cannot believe it is Saturday already -- I completely lost the week. I am trying to disconnect a bit from the internet and it seems I lost all track of time. Must be because I am not seeing the date on the postings.... Read more
Winter Blahs and It's Not Even Winter Yet
Wednesday, October 28, 2020      5 comments

This has been a rough week for me - absolutely no motivation whatsoever. To make it worse, my sedentary daughter invited me to a fit bit workweek challenge and she creamed my butt! She even called and asked if I let her win. Hoping... Read more
Critter in the dark

Yesterday, I put together the cat "palace". We just adopted a kitten and she is all over the furniture. I saw this one tower on sale at pet smart - it is huge 70 inches (taller than me) and she loves it, especially the top shelves. But then, sh... Read more
Toe Blister
Friday, October 23, 2020      5 comments

I just had to take a walk yesterday right before the sun went down and the snow flakes turned big and fluffy. But, I forgot to double up on my socks in my boots. My toe rubbed and now I have a blister on one of my toes. But the views by th... Read more
Snow Snow and more Snow
Thursday, October 22, 2020      7 comments

2nd snow fall is here and I am thinking it will be going all day. Translate that to: my exercise for today will be shoveling. I am bummed that so much has fallen, first snow fall was close to 6 inches and this morning there was at least 4 ... Read more
Couch to 5k week 1 complete
Monday, October 19, 2020      5 comments

I averaged about 2 miles each time I did the workout. Each time I did it on the treadmill, I increased the run speed a bit. As I was doing the last workout, I was thinking instead of going on to week 2, maybe I will continue with week 1 and work... Read more

m Treadmill time again -- woke up to snow falling this morning. UGH! I need to clean my patio before the snow sticks. I like using Robert Ullrey's podcasts for doing the couch to 5k -- he ad... Read more
I failed miserable yesterday
Wednesday, October 14, 2020      5 comments

But, yesterday is past and today is a new day. I ate too many salted nut rolls yesterday - emotional eating and fresh bars -- not a good combination with a feel sorry for me attitude. But to give myself credit -- I got off my butt and ... Read more

I got behind with my blog, but have been keeping up with it on a paper journal and an unconnected to the internet computer. Trying to disconnect a bit I can upload the blogs if anyone wants... Read more
