Spending Day 66 feeling grateful...
Tuesday, January 11, 2011      1 comments

Well, I was hoping not to get stuck at the airport going home from my business trip, but I did anyway. Three canceled flights, hours on planes going nowhere and in lines, including a two-hour line in the cold for taxis and a very late-night driv... Read more
Glad to be here!!!

Day 64, and the sun is shining! I'm going to do some low-impact aerobics and then walk with Leslie later this afternoon. I'm so happy that everything is working well. My week away from home has been very productive in terms of work so it's worth... Read more
How about some Leslie Sansone?
Saturday, January 08, 2011      2 comments

I finally tried some walking with Leslie. I'd seen so many references to her on Spark People that I wanted to see for myself what all the talk was about. My girlfriend and colleague had a copy so we did it together during a break. It's very slo... Read more
Day 62, January 7, Orthodox Christmas
Friday, January 07, 2011      0 comments

I woke up WAY too early, but I got some work done and then walked for about 20 minutes. I'm still planning to do "just 10 minutes more" later today. Best wishes to you all! ... Read more
It's Day 61!
Thursday, January 06, 2011      0 comments

I had a great day yesterday, very productive at work and I squeezed in a mile with Leslie Sansone, 20 minutes of low-impact aerobics on my own, and a very short walk. I'm very, very happy about all that. And today I've already done a lot of writ... Read more
Getting ready for a trip

Today is Day 58 and I am packing for a business trip. I'm so glad that I have my 100-Day Challenge to help me remember to get exercise EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! I'm proud of myself because I made it to the gym yesterday and did 20 minutes on the tre... Read more
Day 57 gonna be a good one!
Sunday, January 02, 2011      0 comments

I woke up too early today, but I'm going to make an effort to get some extra exercise and that may help me get a good night sleep tonight. It's raining right now so I don't feel much like taking a walk outside, but I'll try to get DH to go to th... Read more
New Year's Eve
Friday, December 31, 2010      0 comments

I'm newly committed to fitness today. My bone-density scan results make that a necessity! I've already done "just 10 minutes" and DH and I are going to take the dog for a long walk in just a little while. The 100-Day Challenge has helped me get ... Read more
Yikes! Bad news from a Dexa scan!
Thursday, December 30, 2010      2 comments

Oooops, I got a real wake-up call on Day 54. I'm in the high-risk category for osteoporosis because of my family background, physical build, genetic history, and so on. I had a Dexa Scan two years ago to establish a base line and learned then th... Read more
Just 10 minutes of shoveling snow
Monday, December 27, 2010      4 comments

We got a few inches last night. Not the "monster" storm that was predicted, but a respectable amount of snow. And DH and I went out early this morning and cleared the driveway and the sidewalk. The wind is really cold, but I'm working from home ... Read more
Day 50!!! And, yes, I did "just 10 minutes" on Christmas!
Sunday, December 26, 2010      0 comments

So, Christmas was peaceful and wonderful, but my (perhaps unrealistic) plans to take a 45-minute walk on Christmas day didn't pan out so I ended up doing "just 10 minutes" by dancing around the house around 8 p.m. Without the challenge, I defini... Read more
Day 48

Yikes, I ate too much chocolate yesterday! That's Christmas for you.... I was being pretty good until #2 Son asked for some candy. Well, mom helped herself too! But I can re-commit today, and that's what I'm doing RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE! The e... Read more
Day 47
Thursday, December 23, 2010      3 comments

My goal was to take another 45-minute walk with DH and the dog this afternoon. But chores and phone calls and kids got in the way of that so I just substituted a workout in front of the t.v. instead. Definitely not my favorite, but I'm so happy ... Read more
Day 46
Wednesday, December 22, 2010      3 comments

Okay, today is Day 46 and I'm not feeling too great. But that's no reason not to do "just 10 minutes" so that's what I'm going to do. And maybe by daybreak, I'll feel better and will be up for much, much more. I've been trying to get myself to t... Read more
Going ice skating some time this week
Monday, December 20, 2010      1 comments

I've been using Julia Cameron's "Artist's Way" to recapture my creativity, and one of the exercises is to list some activities you used to like but haven't done lately. I used to love, love, love ice skating. In fact one of the fondest memories ... Read more
