Cracked, yet abiding

Friday, January 30, 2015      3 comments

My Zumba mentor invited me to hear her speak at her church this evening. The message was - Cracked, yet abiding. Even though were facing difficulties (jobs, family, finances) or are stressed, we should continue to do God's work. God pu... Read more

Sweeeeet Tea

Thursday, January 29, 2015      4 comments

The small change challenge was to read labels and pick one source of sneaky sugar in my diet to avoid for the day. I'm a southern girl and I love sweet tea. While I primarily drink unsweetened tea (with sweet n low), I still occasionally indul... Read more

Dancing any where

Monday, January 26, 2015      2 comments

Today's small change challenge was to sneak in some fitness during one of my everyday tasks today. At the end of the day I was dancing in my room. The custodian walked in to empty the trash and was rendered speechless. We both then busted ou... Read more

Bridging the Gap

Sunday, January 25, 2015      3 comments

The Bridges didn't go as well as I planned. After the 7th rep, I caught a cramp in my left quad. Oooooo painful. It took several minutes to get off the floor (boy it comically too) and a couple more before I could put weight on it! But all i... Read more

Losing Da Butt

Today's small change challenge reminds me of the Old School Song "Da Butt". There were a series of exercises to "firm" up the glutes. My plan is to the Bridge (yoga) in a few minutes. I lost 2 more pounds this week for a total of 9.5 si... Read more

I was so excited when I arrived home to find my order from Zumba. Twice I've ordered pants and had to return them because of the fit. Today they fit perfectly and I wore them to Zumba. I switched and conducted the 2nd half of Zumba today. I'... Read more

Usually I'm unable to exercise on Tuesdays because I teach piano lessons after school. And typically I don't sleep well on Tuesdays. I don't think I'm going to have any trouble falling asleep tonight. I went to Body Combat and tonight was... Read more

These shoes weren't made for walking

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      2 comments

Today's blog will be brief (I need to finish grading my student's exams!) The small change challenge was to burn an extra 100 calories. From the extensive list, I decided to walk up and down the stairs for 11 minutes. Trying to keep a ste... Read more

Movin On

Saturday, January 17, 2015      1 comments

I ran across this great quote this morning on Facebook. I can choose to let it define me, confine me, outshine me or refine me.... I can also choose to move on and leave it behind me. I got sidetracked with my weight... Read more
