Never too late for a re-boot!
Thursday, May 21, 2020 4 comments
In January I pledged to lose 1/2 pound a week to be on track for May. Ummm, well, that did not happen. The pandemic did not help, of course, but I didn't do myself any favors either. I was trying to work in sessions of "Just 10 Minutes," and tha... Read more

I tracked my food today for the first time in a long, long time. I was surprised how easy it was to stay in bounds. At least today I had no trouble eating a normal amount of calories and keeping the fat percentage low. Fingers crossed for tomorr... Read more

I love winter, but I normally put on a few pounds then too, and this year I'm starting at my heaviest ever! So.... I've just set a new goal to try to lose half a pound a week for a total of ten pounds by May 24. I'm sure I can do it if I keep ex... Read more
Doing a bit better!
Friday, July 26, 2019 5 comments
I've been doing the treadmill/weight lifting routine for...oh, forever... and getting "nowhere." Okay, not nowhere. I am stronger. I was bored with the routine and it wasn't helping me with weight loss. Then I happened to notice that a Spark Pal... Read more

I've been working on getting back into better shape and a better routine since May 21. For some reason, I'm still reluctant to go back to Zumba and yoga class. The memory of vertigo is still too strong, I guess. But I've been doing videos with C... Read more

Oh, my goodness! Turns out my last blog was in 2016 when I was celebrating 7 years on Spark People. So, that means I've been here long enough to know that the start-over that I need now will bring dividends eventually. I had some otoliths out of... Read more

I've been on Sparkpeople for 7 years! And I'm healthier in every way as a result. More exercise, better eating, happier attitude, fewer excuses... In fact, this morning I'm going to do two videos with Coach Nicole to celebrate: one with my mom t... Read more

I weighed myself before Zumba this morning. Ouch, 5 pounds heavier than I was in Dec. I'm quite sure that stress had a lot to do with the gain. I've been eating and drinking too much to deal with it. But now I'm going back to basics, even tracki... Read more
Piyo surprised me!
Friday, May 29, 2015 2 comments
I went to my second Piyo class last night. It was a real challenge. Some of the moves defy the laws of (my own personal) physics, while others look deceptively easy but are tough when done in sequence. At several times in the class, I felt like ... Read more
Thanks, Spark People!

I have been dragging all day, just going through the motions and not feeling enthusiastic. I was even thinking about skipping the gym today. Then I came to Spark People and almost immediately feel more excited about getting some exercise. I'm go... Read more

I just realized today that I passed a milestone last week. I've been a member since May 15, 2009. Woo hoo! I've learned so much here on Spark People, made some great Spark friends, trained for and completed a 5K, and learned how to make exercise... Read more

I just got back from visiting my "Aged Parents." Dad is 91 and Mom will be 88 in January. Yet they lead a life more active than most people half their ages! Playing bridge, going to concerts, meeting with friends, watching sports, cheering on th... Read more
Walked for 3 hours

I didn't have a car yesterday and the weather was beautiful so I decided to walk to the local library. The round trip, including returning a book and checking out two new ones that were on hold, took just about 3 hours. It was harder than I expe... Read more
