Metabolism slowing down?
Thursday, February 27, 2014      8 comments

I've been staying within my calorie range and exercising at least 30 minutes a day, but the weight is creeping on. Not bad. I'm still in my weight range, but I think I may be out of a challenge. I set my target weight to a lower one because I k... Read more
Changes in the body and the body art!
Monday, February 24, 2014      9 comments

My body continues to change. I am seeing more definition in the legs and even the husband noticed they are firming up. The tush is a bit more round and yes, that is a good thing. Not really sure why. I haven't done a lot of running or cycling... Read more
A good weekend!

It was a good weekend! On Saturday, I was at the tattoo parlor working on my back piece. It was a "hard sit." I have a lot of scar tissue due to it being a cover up. It's a great isometric workout. I also got a long walk in with the dogs. ... Read more
Pink stuff...

I know that many people look to "quick fixes" for weight loss. I know that some of them do work, but I also know that the results rarely last long term. A friend has been touting the "pink stuff" on Facebook. It gives a sense of fullnes... Read more

I am pooped today. My para has been out all week due to a death in the family and wouldn't you know it, I get a new student. (He's new to my class, but was at our school two years ago.) I'm about worn out. It snowed today, but most of it... Read more
I ran and ran and ran!

Today was the third day that I was able to run. It's supposed to snow tonight, so I thought I'd better take advantage of the nice weather. The first night was 7.65, second was 3.03 and tonight was 5.21. I was pleased with the times. The first... Read more
I like 1/2 of what I see.

Since I have been riding the stationary bike, I've noticed that my thighs, calves and my butt are getting more toned. That is a good thing! It seems like I actually have a butt now, instead of a flat spot in the back of my pants. My thighs ji... Read more
Reflection about slowing down.
Sunday, February 16, 2014      10 comments

After having time to think about yesterday, I am very proud of myself. I try to figure out what lesson I am "supposed" to learn from each event in my life. Yesterday's was all about slowing down. If I was slowing down, I would have seen... Read more
Up and down, literally!
Saturday, February 15, 2014      13 comments

Today started out on an "up" note. A nice breakfast, I cleaned one bathroom (nervous energy for my first official run of the season) and reading my daily devotional. Then, the down turn! I backed out of the garage and hit my daughter's car... Read more
I'm fine, but the daughter "isn't."
Friday, February 14, 2014      12 comments

Don't panic, it's not as bad as it sounds. On Wednesday I got a call from our oldest, who is a little over a month from her 19th birthday, telling me she needed a verbal consent to be treated as the ER in her college town. It seems that her ri... Read more

Twenty-one years ago today, my husband proposed to me. He had told his Mom he was never getting married and never having kids. That was a 20 1/2 years ago and four kids later. Never say never. I remember saying that I'll never start smok... Read more

I've noticed that the thigh area of my pants is getting tighter. I asked my "soccer" daughter if cycling could cause such a thing. She answered that yes, activities like cycling, soccer, tennis, sprinting, etc. build the "twitch muscles." The... Read more
Still on the wagon, but my knuckles aren't white anymore.
Sunday, February 09, 2014      9 comments

I've had a great weekend with my eating and exercise! Staying at the lower end and getting lots of sweat time in! I feel sooo much better. I realized that part of "being on the wagon" is sparking. I was trying to not spend as much time o... Read more

My Friday was a bit better, but I still ate junk. I wasn't miserable, just disappointed in myself. Saturday is here and it's going ... Read more
My turn to "fall flat on my face!"
Friday, February 07, 2014      21 comments

We all have our moments of glory and those moments were we need to admit our shortcomings. It's my turn to fess up. I didn't just "fall off the wagon," but I "fell flat on my face" on the way down. Last night not only did I eat unhealthy foods... Read more
