Day 5. Oh, yeah!
Sunday, February 20, 2011      3 comments

We went for a walk yesterday in the frigid temperatures and that biting wind, but I had my down coat on and it seemed to go quickly. Then we met some friends for dinner to celebrate her birthday. It was a very nice, peaceful evening. The restaur... Read more
Pleasant surprise!

This is Day 2 of my second 100-Day Challenge, and, no, I haven't lost a single pound in the 102 days that I've been exercising! Weird? Yes, I agree. And I've been tracking my food scrupulously and staying within the boundaries too. Luckily I had... Read more
Victory is mine!
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      7 comments

When I originally counted my 100 Days for the challenge, Day 100 was supposed to fall on Febr. 14. Then, somehow, I got the count mixed up. But, you know what, I'm still calling it a victory because either today or tomorrow, I will have exercise... Read more
Whew! Close one on Day 97!
Sunday, February 13, 2011      1 comments

Wow, yesterday was a busy, busy day. I worked all morning, and then I went to a conference in the afternoon, followed by dinner with colleagues. I ate well and sparingly at the dinner so no problems there. But at the end of it all, as we were wa... Read more
Day 95? Already?
Thursday, February 10, 2011      2 comments

I can't believe it! I've exercised 95 days in a row. And unless lightning strikes, I will make my goal of exercising 100 days in a row. I'm so happy about that and so excited that I'm finally really making progress again. Woo Hoo! Thank you so m... Read more
Not bad at all...

It's Day 92 and I'm back from my trip. The banquet on the last day was a real challenge, but other than that, for the most part I did pretty well with my eating and I'm happy to say that I'm still making progress. Hurray! I'm giving myself a sm... Read more
Off on a trip
Monday, January 31, 2011      4 comments

Today is Day 86, and I'm off on a week-long business trip. I'm wary because for the first time in a year, I'm finally making progress and now I have to go and endanger that with different foods, spotty exercise, poor sleep.... Well, you get the ... Read more
Can I sustain my progress on a trip?
Saturday, January 29, 2011      4 comments

I'm leaving soon on another business trip. Can I keep making progress? It's hard to maintain when you don't have complete control over what you eat and how you spend your time....But I want to keep moving forward. This feels good and it's the fi... Read more
Missing Love Handles. Absolutely no reward for their return!
Thursday, January 27, 2011      3 comments

That's right, ladies and gents! A couple of weeks of really good eating and several giant snowfalls later, and I have lost a set of love handles! Don't worry---I still have a long way to go. Nevertheless, this is genuine progress. So, woo hoo! ... Read more
Day 80 for recovery
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      2 comments

Oh, my, I overdid it yesterday. I guess I got cocky and overestimated what I could get done. I had to take my car to be inspected so after I dropped it off, I decided to walk the two miles to work. Briskly. In the snow. Carrying my computer and ... Read more
Day 77 at the gym
Saturday, January 22, 2011      1 comments

No, I'm not there yet. But I will be. I'm going to the gym today even though I could easily do "just 10 minutes" in front of the t.v. I want to get back to the gym to prove that I can do it and to ramp up my workout just a little bit. It's a goo... Read more
It's Day 75 and that's a good thing.
Thursday, January 20, 2011      1 comments

I can't tell you how very, very happy I am to be at Day 75. Not because I'm almost finished, but because I'm just getting started! This challenge has really helped me to work exercise into my daily life. And no heroic measures are required! "Jus... Read more
Freezing rain for Day 73
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      2 comments

Much as I wish I could stay home today, I have to get out there and finish shoveling the ice-covered snow. And I'll be doing it in the freezing rain. Don't get me wrong. I love ... Read more
Can it really be Day 71?
Sunday, January 16, 2011      1 comments

That's so amazing to me that I can exercise for 71 days straight! True, quite a few of the days were "just 10 minutes," but still.... I'm happy to have the challenge to keep me going no matter what! ... Read more
Home again!
Friday, January 14, 2011      1 comments

It's Day 69 and I'm so happy to be home and back in the groove. The challenge really, really helped me yesterday. If I had not had my streak in mind, I would have stayed on the couch all day and done nothing. Decompressing from my trip was turni... Read more
