Miles and miles
Thursday, March 19, 2015      6 comments

Since I made the acquaintance of Mr. Slinky (my Spark Activity Tracker) only 7-1/2 days ago, we've walked 33 miles together. If we keep this up, by my calculation we will have walked about a thousand miles by the end of the year. I mentioned ... Read more

Me and Mr. Slinky, we be SMOKIN'. In the last six and a half days, from the moment I attached Mr. Slinky to my beat up old sneaker, we have covered 26-1/2 miles. We got an award for 25 miles. Boy, that made Mr. Slinky glow with pride. And we... Read more
Monday went well

Since I fired up my Spark Activity Tracker on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Slinky and I have done 49,072 steps together. I set my goal at 8,000 steps a day, and so far I've only missed it once (on Saturday my husband and I had a rather time-con... Read more
Me and Mr. Slinky
Friday, March 13, 2015      5 comments

I've decided to name my Spark Activity Tracker "Mr. Slinky" because he is going to be very instrumental in getting me into that slinky red dress. It's an innocuous-sounding name for such a slave-driver. I didn't put my shoes (or Mr. ... Read more

Oh, dear! I've created a monster. I got my Spark Activity Tracker up and running yesterday afternoon, so today was my first full day. I had the steps set for a goal of 6,000, but it seems I am quite the over-achiever, so I was bound and deter... Read more
WooHoo! My Activity Tracker is now functional

I do so love a new toy. I managed to get my Spark Activity Tracker all fired up today. Naturally, that didn't happen until AFTER my 55 minute walk to the BiMart, but oh, well. I'm so happy with that little thing smiling at me from my shoe. I... Read more
Exercise, exercise...

I didn't get nearly as much exercise as I had planned this weekend. Usually my husband is happy to walk with me, but he was having trouble with his hips and knees, so he couldn't do as much as we had hoped. Also, we were at the coast, where w... Read more
Screaming thighs

I've been dancing quite a bit today. I'm learning some really awesome stuff, and even though I don't feel very graceful yet, I know that will come as soon as my muscles start toning up. When I first started walking, every step was an effort an... Read more
The Perfect DVD
Thursday, March 05, 2015      7 comments

I got a new dance video in the mail today. Actually, I got three. I'm a little bit obsessive about dancing. I have two years and nine months until my 70th birthday, and my ultimate goal is to be the Dancing Queen at my party. Since I have ab... Read more
The Dog Ate My Motivation
Wednesday, March 04, 2015      3 comments

Uh oh! The only explanation I have for my complete lack of motivation today is that the dog must have eaten it. (That explanation would probably work except I don't have a dog.) I only walked 50 minutes, and half of that was due to my eve... Read more
What Doesn't Kill Me...
Tuesday, March 03, 2015      1 comments

I'm thinking of the song about "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Well, I've done 120 minutes of exercise every day for three days in a row, now. Since I'm not dead, I can only assume I'm stronger. Three months ago, when I first j... Read more
Calories earned
Monday, March 02, 2015      2 comments

I exercised 120 minutes today. That was four walks, two sessions of strength training and some dancing. All that exercise earned me 561 extra calories. My goodness, that's a lot of eating. I feel like an overstuffed armchair right about now.... Read more
Losing and Gaining
Sunday, March 01, 2015      5 comments

My inspirational quote of the day is: The reason why people give up is because they focus on how far they have to go instead of how far they’ve come. Good point. I decided to think about how far I’ve come in the three months since I j... Read more

Woohoo! I weighed this morning and I'm happy to report that I lost three very important pounds! What makes them so important? I have three very important reasons. One - I am no longer a member of the 200 club. Yessssss! That's a milesto... Read more
Exercise Goals for March
Saturday, February 28, 2015      2 comments

Due to the bum knee I mentioned in earlier blogs, I'm going to miss my exercise goals this month. I'm determined not to miss next month, though, and I'm trying to decide exactly how I want to achieve my exercise minutes in March. I'm going to ... Read more
