Spring is coming....
Sunday, April 17, 2011      2 comments

The forsythia is blooming. The daffodils are out. The grass is nice and green. So the next sign of spring will be.......more energy! I've had a bit more trouble than usual throwing off the winter doldrums this year, but that's changing now. I've... Read more
Day 59
Thursday, April 14, 2011      4 comments

Whew! Day 59! This second 100 days has been every bit as much a challenge. Maybe even more so as "just 10 minutes" is normally "just 20 minutes" now and my Bell's palsy has been flaring up now and then to keep things "interesting." Still, I'm ve... Read more
Just checking in on Day 53
Friday, April 08, 2011      2 comments

I'm on a business trip and I'm proud of myself because I finished up yesterday, got to the hotel, got right into my workout clothes and went to the gym. Just a short stint on the treadmill because it was already 6:45 p.m., but I'm happy I did it... Read more
Aerobics, a long walk...Things are looking up!
Saturday, April 02, 2011      2 comments

Day 46 and things are going better. Three good nights of sleep in a row is the magic wand! I went to my wonderful aerobics class yesterday and had a great time. And today we'll be taking the ... Read more
Just keep struggling?
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      6 comments

I don't know why but this month I am really struggling! I'm tired all the time and I don't want to do even "just 10 minutes." In fact, some days the only thing that is keeping me going is the 100 Day Challenge. Other days are easier so I've been... Read more
Almost half way there...

It's Day 40, and I'm going to have to use that to try to motivate myself. I'm having a peaceful weekend, but that includes exercise too, of course. Yesterday we took the dog for a nice, long, peaceful walk, and I'm going to do that again today. ... Read more
One more reason I love Spark People
Saturday, March 26, 2011      2 comments

The last few days have been tough for some reason. It's been a struggle to get even "just 10 minutes" done and I could not get motivated. I've been sleeping poorly and feeling like I was just about to come down with something. But, as always, re... Read more
Another close one....

Oh, boy. Today is Day 35 of my second 100 Day Challenge, and I'm here to report that yesterday was a close call. I almost missed my exercising! It was such a busy day and I had so much to do. The only thing that saved me was the stairs at the of... Read more
I didn't give up completely!

I've taken my title from a topic on one of the message boards. I think it's such a great sentiment! Maybe the best thing in a long line of good things I've learned from Spark People! And today it's true for me. I get insomnia at the drop of a ha... Read more
Still here!

Day 26/200 and I'm still here! I tried to get out of exercising several times this week, including yesterday (!), but the challenge kept me going. Hurray! I've been tired this week and my Bell's palsy is acting up, but that's no reason to give u... Read more
Not too bad...
Thursday, March 10, 2011      3 comments

Day 23/200 and not too bad. It's raining outside so I did my exercises inside in front of the television. And tomorrow I'm going to go to my aerobics class. That will make it 3 for 3 for this week. My face has been acting up with residual Bell's... Read more
Uh, oh. Trying to weasel out....
Monday, March 07, 2011      5 comments

Oh, boy. I have today off, and I had planned to go to morning aerobics. I used to go three times a week, and then I got Bell's palsy and that messed up everything! And I've been very busy with extra work duties since January so I haven't made it... Read more
This is going to be a nice, easy day.

It's Day 19 of my second 100 Day Challenge, and I'm resting. But this is active rest (a new concept for me) so I'm going to go to the gym and do a little bit of time on the treadmill. I rested yesterday too and that meant a leisurely 45-minute w... Read more
So grateful!
Thursday, March 03, 2011      6 comments

It's Day 16 of my second 100 Day Challenge, and I'm so grateful that I found the challenge and decided to follow it. I know I would be bailing out right this very minute if I did not have the challenge to keep me strong! There's something about ... Read more
Day 13 and a lucky one!
Monday, February 28, 2011      3 comments

I'm very happy to be here on Day 13. I took it easy over the weekend. I took a leisurely walk both days. It was a great break and much needed so I'm satisfied, especially because I kept my eating in check. Even though I made chocolate chip cooki... Read more
