Please pray for my friend
Please pray for my dear friend, Bible study pal, and prayer partner. Connie is on life support since yesterday due to heart failure. Her poor heart has struggled for years though she is only in her 60s. Previously, medications and procedures ... Read more
Well, sort of. I'm in maintenance mode, but do want to lose some more pounds for vanity reasons. I got off the plateau the wrong way. I gained weight. Ouch!!! However, I'm pretty sure I gained mostly, if not all, water. I didn't get quite... Read more
Incidental exercise is probably my favorite.
I chugged mostly uphill to our annual street fair to help with one of the booths. It's about 1 1/2 miles. (I thought longingly to the walk home, mostly down the hills.) Then I was on my feet for the three hours as I helped share information a... Read more
I've been in a bit of a rut lately. I'm way over extended at the moment with no end in sight. I love all I am doing. It's just a lot. Which brings me to my rut. I've not really challenged my body recently as I've worked out, walked, etc. I... Read more
Too much sadness...again!
At the beginning of this year my grand nephew was violently murdered at work by a deranged co-worker. His body was found about a week later. His murderer sits in jail supposedly unable to stand trial at this time. Meanwhile our family is so s... Read more
Less time working out this week
Due to increased pain, I've had to cut back a bit this week. Still walking more than 10,000 steps but not able to do much additional training right now. It is discouraging, but know it is temporary. Every day is a new adventure. I'm just en... Read more
One month later...
I haven't blogged in a month. The first two weeks I was out of town and had a very challenging, but vert rewarding get away, We watch two of our grandkids compete in junior olympics water polo on two different teams. It was very hot so my ms ... Read more
I tried eating some unhealthy things early in the day to see what would happen with the scale. Even though my calories were where they should be, I discovered that for me, unhealthy equals added weight. Granted, some extra weight is no doubt d... Read more
One of those days
I'm dragging today. I feel like I'm sleepwalking through my day. I got up early to watch my grandsons with their swim teams and then my granddaughter at her swim lessons. I pushed her on the tire swing a bit and got in a bit of walking. Then... Read more
I would love to be able to jog a 5K and to walk a half-marathon. I'm far from getting to either, but am making progress.
Yesterday at the gym I managed to 'run' a mile without a break to walk. It was very slow, just over 16 minutes, but it ... Read more
Two rest days!
I hope this isn't an indication that ms is hitting a difficult stretch. I was so excited to have walked (some jogging, too) more than 30,000 steps two days in a row. However, the next day I could only walk a bit more than 13,000 and today I do... Read more
I lost a day and then found it!
I thought yesterday was Thursday and aimed to get 30,000+ steps. It was nearly the end of the day before I actually realized it was Wednesday. So, today I also aimed for the 30,000+ steps. I succeeded yesterday and am nearly there today. I m... Read more
On Sunday my husband and I were in charge of fellowship hours after both worship services. I know my habits are well in place by the way I approached this opportunity. I baked for two days without even tasting many of my creations. I purchase... Read more
Holiday Weekend Success
I was very active over the long weekend including leading a parade to pass out flags to all the people along the route. I took my husband and six-year-old granddaughter to help. She was so cute and fast. Then we walked back against the parade... Read more
I must increase intensity!
I get in lots of steps each day, some walking, some jogging. But, there are only so many hours in a day that I can do this. I sneak in lots of steps throughout the day while doing other things. But, I think after just more than 5 months of 10... Read more
