Fatigue is making progress difficult
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      6 comments

I've been so fatigued these past couple of weeks that I have had to cut back on the "extra" exercise I'd added in - intervals and strength training. Still keeping up with the walking and the stretching afterwards. (Yay for good habits!) Cut... Read more
Cutting back on refined sugar
Friday, February 07, 2014      2 comments

My weight has crept up a few pounds in the past few months, and I want to get it back down. I tried by adding exercise - intervals to my walking, strength training (a few weeks ago). These seemed to give a short-term boost to the weight loss, bu... Read more
Adding strength training back into my workout
Friday, January 17, 2014      2 comments

I've gone quite a number of months without strength training - not even sure how many. Today, I added it back into my workout. I did a warm-up first - usually it will be taking a short walk of 10-12 minutes. (Today, with it being so cold, I... Read more
Walking with intervals is now a habit
Monday, November 25, 2013      4 comments

I think it was a couple months ago that I started walking with intervals again, after stopping for some months. Today I added a fifth interval, which I will keep up. Since adding intervals again, I've been walking four and a half minutes be... Read more
What happened when I went off gluten-free eating
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      2 comments

I didn't realized it had been so long since I last blogged - 4 whole months! It's interesting that the last blog was about tossing some too-loose clothes. Yesterday (exactly 4 months after the previous "toss"), I got to toss my second exercise t... Read more
Got to toss my too-loose workout clothes!
Friday, September 28, 2012      2 comments

I have a certain top I've been using for years to exercise in. It's been wearing out, but I decided 6 or 7 weeks ago that, instead of tossing it right away, I would use getting rid of it as a motivation - since it was also becoming too loose. On... Read more
8 weeks completed on the Transitions Lifestyle System
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      3 comments

Time for me to write an update. Everything is still going well, and I continue to lose about a pound a week. (18 pounds down so far!) Since I made the eating changes 8 weeks ago, I admit to struggling what to have for meals. I seem to be eating ... Read more
One month into Transitions Lifestyle System
Saturday, August 25, 2012      2 comments

One month ago today is when I started this new eating lifestyle. (Exercising is included in the lifestyle re-design, too, but that is a much slower change for me than the eating has been.) It's a good time to make some notes for myself, and mayb... Read more
3rd day on Transitions Lifestyle System (TLS)
Friday, July 27, 2012      1 comments

This first week is a detox week, basically eating all the fresh vegetables I want, plus three servings of fruit. As the first day wore on, I was really struggling. But I made it! And yesterday was much easier - amazingly so. I'm actually sleepin... Read more
Starting Transitions Lifestyle System today
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      7 comments

I've decided I need some help to change my eating and exercise. In thinking about my life and my goals, I realize that it's important to me that I not go on a short "diet," but that I get into a lifestyle that I can and will follow the rest of m... Read more
Walked a mile today
Saturday, June 25, 2011      5 comments

I came down with a REALLY bad cold over 3 weeks ago, but after a week of vacation (returned home yesterday afternoon), I think I've "licked" it :). So I want to get back into exercise! (Yes, got a little in on vacation - one walk and some swimmi... Read more
Walking and T-Tapp
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      4 comments

I think it may be best for me to mix things up a bit. I love the benefits T-Tapp offers, and that it is done indoors (Florida gets hot!), but sometimes I need a less strenuous form of exercise that takes less concentration - if I don't, I won't ... Read more
Back from vacation & back to T-Tapp!
Monday, May 09, 2011      2 comments

It's been a couple weeks since I last did T-Tapp, so I couldn't make it as far as I did before. But I managed 16 minutes of the MORE workout, and I'm feeling good!... Read more
I'm encouraged
Saturday, April 16, 2011      5 comments

I made it through the MORE workout up to and including the OIL Wells. It's very encouraging to me that I made it without "wimping out" :). 26 minutes!... Read more
Learned Oil Wells
Friday, April 08, 2011      2 comments

Just did the Oil Wells for the first time today. I've decided that, while I'm still learning the exercises, it's best to do the Primary Back Stretch first, then skip to the new exercise I want to add. That gives me a good warm-up without wearing... Read more
