Well, the Big Day has already come and gone. Yesterday was the Big, Beautiful Wedding of my eldest brother out in Los Angeles. His fiance tapped me to be her Maid (ok, MATRON) of Honor, and it was a 1965-themed wedding. Here are just a coupla... Read more

I had my 6-month pacemaker check today at Mass General Hospital. While going through the procedure, the nurse asked me what was going on Oct. 29th. I thought for a second and then replied that I was at a Halloween party... dancing. She commen... Read more

We awoke to absolutely beautiful crystal clear blue skies this morning. Not so yesterday. For most of the day we stayed in our house and listened to (and watched!) the wind furiously blow around our property. We were on the "non-rain" sid... Read more
An unsolicited compliment -- WOW!

This is definitely a WOOHOO for me: Yesterday while spending time with me and DH's friends, one of my girlfriends said she had a cute little story to tell me. She and I go to the same hairdresser, and I had been in the shop about a week be... Read more
Is this my Set Point?
Saturday, August 20, 2011      3 comments

For about the last eight years--since the Transition in my life--I've weighed right around 132. At 5'3" that's certainly a fair weight. Between June '09 when I injured my knee in a Trampoline Incident and this past January when I began to lose... Read more
Women's Booty Camp -- Final Analysis
Thursday, August 11, 2011      3 comments

The final booty camp session was last Wednesday the 3rd. I can't say that I wasn't a little relieved to be done with getting up for a 6 a.m. class twice a week. And even though it was absolutely the biggest fitness challenge of my life, I'm pr... Read more

Today I had the appointment for my body fat percentage assessment at my gym. My last assessment was in November 2010. As Dr. Judy got her calipers ready, she asked me to remind her what the number was last time. I smiled and replied that I di... Read more
Booty Camp -- Session Eight
Monday, August 01, 2011      3 comments

It's hard getting up at 5:20 on a Monday morning, but I've managed to do it 8 times now for Booty Camp class. Not much exciting to report on today's session; both the other woman in the class and myself had a low energy morning and truthfully w... Read more

Booty Camp had to be cancelled on Monday, but we'll be making up the session next week... I sit here typing this feeling exhausted but satisfied. I feel stronger with everything I did this morning... 30 jumping jacks, 20 side kicks, 10 pus... Read more
Booty Camp Session Six - Possible Progress?
Wednesday, July 20, 2011      1 comments

I headed out of the house this morning with a little less dread and little more excitement about my twice-weekly booty camp class. That alone is progress. During the warm up, the "mountain climbers" seemed a little bit easier than l... Read more
Booty booty -- Session Five
Monday, July 18, 2011      1 comments

Another lovely morning out on my gym's Back 40. Nice and breezy; just great for an invigorating 45-minute circuit training session. The whole thing continues to be somewhat of a struggle for me, but I'm not quitting. We did those back... Read more
