Well I finally got some good sleep last night after not having slept for 2 nights in a row! But I learned that even dog tired I can still live up to my plan of exercise and healthy eating! That was a real test and I feel like I passed it with pr... Read more

I reviewed an exercise DVD on Amazon and when I looked in my email this morning, the fitness expert who leads my DVD (Anne Pringle Burnell) had responded to my review! Maybe I'm nuts but that really pleased me no end! I'm having a good day ... Read more

Having a bit of a rough day due to lack of sleep. I hope to pull myself up by my boot straps and get some exercise in. Feeling so sluggish though. My mood is still very positive and determined i'm just very low on energy. My mood probably i... Read more

Monday, July 28, 2014      2 comments

Ok I admit it - I weighed today. I'm not logging (even though it showed a 2 lb loss) because it was not time for me to weigh but the scale kept taunting me! It got louder every time I walked in the room! I do believe I'm going to have to lock th... Read more

Got Ninja in yesterday late and still need to wash it out and fix my own slush as I found out that the slush I'd been ordering at my local drive thru contains not only Splenda but sugar as well! ... Read more

Okay yesterday was a day where I hit the limits in all but my calorie count. I knew it was going to be close because of our "splruge" dinner. But today is another day and I am ready to rock! My Ninja mixer gets here sometime today and I may be a... Read more

Know I'm having a splurge dinner tonight so I'm doing what I can to kind of "hoard" my nutrition for then. I am doing well balanced by drinking weight loss shakes. Not the most filling of things but then maybe starting over with learning what it... Read more
My Hubby the Wonder Man!

I was thinking tonight how special my husband of 27 years is.... He supports me no matter what. I mean he has never criticized me for anything in the last 10 years! He supports my exercise and nutrition and lifestyle changes but never harps on ... Read more

I did my 60 minutes of Senior Strength today for the first time and it was harder than I thought it would be. I felt good right after but now am sore and achy. I'm hoping that part of this is due to the fact that I didn't sleep as much as I shou... Read more
