Would you be ((blank)) enough to do this???
Tuesday, November 05, 2013      7 comments

I invite you to read my story and figure out what the best word is for the blank. I went to the gym (from the office) at lunch time today. As I'm changing, I realize I don't have my sportbra (even though I was sure I had it). Decision tim... Read more
November is a time for FRESH STARTs!!!

Yes, it's gonna have to be for me. I'm not proud of the way I've conducted myself in the last month (or so). I wish I held myself to a higher standard concerning my calorie intake, rather than resigning myself to be complacent. I'm not happ... Read more

Yes, I have to remind myself that this is not my last day on earth so I don't have to pig out. Many challenges ahead today: - in the morning at work we are getting scones and chocolate croissants - Thai food buffet for lunch - Halloween c... Read more

I'm taking a "Trust and Estates" course. It makes for long days - or at least it feels like it. Luckily, the instructor is entertaining and the course is only two days. Of course it's in another building so I'm away from my computer - totall... Read more
Bouncing back
Friday, October 25, 2013      5 comments

or so I hope. Since last Friday, I was sick with a cold/flu. Not totally miserable, but certainly not fun. I spent so much time doing nothing: no going to the gym, no walking, not even going to work (it's nice to have that option). I wa... Read more

I used to have chronic back pain... I believe that when I'm ill, it will show up in the weakest parts of my body. So, I would definitely have back pain along with whatever other symptoms... During this cold/flu/infection, I have not had back... Read more
When will this ever end???
Monday, October 21, 2013      7 comments

It feels like I've been sick for a long time, when in fact, it has only been days. I think it first started on Thursday with losing my voice and low energy but I went to work because we had a union dinner after work. (And I'm not sorry to say ... Read more

Exercise for the mind and soul
Saturday, October 12, 2013      6 comments

Today I went for a walk with my son at Petrie Island. With the exception of last weekend, it was quite some time since we last went. I was pleasantly surprised. The walking trail has been extended quite a bit and there are numerous paths that... Read more

Hmmm, thoughts and intentions don't seem to be enough
Tuesday, October 08, 2013      5 comments

Okay, I know I'm stating the obvious BUT, this is a reminder to myself, and others who fall into this trap. For a while now, I've been meaning to shake up my exercise routine. I want to get back into using my kettlebells. For a number of mont... Read more
BiCep curls
Sunday, October 06, 2013      8 comments

Warning: I'm gonna take a moment to brag about my progress... two years ago, I could hardly lift 8lb weights. I do 3 sets of 10 reps each. I started in a "private" area of the change room gym and progressively worked my way up to 10lb, 12lb, ... Read more
Dang, ellipitical #2 and #4 were taken....
Thursday, October 03, 2013      5 comments

when I arrived at the gym at 11:40am. I would have gone earlier but I was stuck in a meeting. Obviously I'm not the only one who has favorite ellipticals (see my last post) because those were the only ones in use! So I decided to go on the r... Read more

Oh, the things I think about as I tread along in my cardio workout. I do love the elliptical - very easy on the knees. and it's so much better when it has the individual TV screen. At the gym near my work, I ignore 5 of the ellipticals - th... Read more
