Saturday, August 15, 2015      8 comments

Thursday, August 13, 2015      4 comments

So I am on Week 1, Day 2 of the 5-week 5K program. Today was a marathon day at work after being out of the office all day yesterday. I knew it was going to involve four late afternoon interviews followed a 6:30 pm meeting. So I planned ahead ... Read more

Feeling a little stronger each day!

Thursday, November 10, 2011      0 comments

Had the follow up appointment with the ENT. They were happy that my bp med is at 20. I was ticked. How can you "cheer" that someone's medication has been increased. My goal is to be off of this medication. I do not feel my best on it. My s... Read more

Dr. appt on Friday was not great. They upped the bp med dose. However, I had my blood pressure cuff in my purse and showed them it was accurate. Now at least they believe my readings from home (one was 110/63, not exactly high). I gained 2.3... Read more

What Possessed Me

Thursday, November 03, 2011      1 comments

Speed Bump

Saturday, February 13, 2010      1 comments

My roadtrip to NJ totally derailed the weightloss. It is so hard when I can't control when and what to eat. Add to it a little family stress and it went downhill from there. The entire week was blown. Didn't walk, weigh in, or record nutriti... Read more

Okay, so today the scale did not move. I think that all the intial weight is that "water weight" that falls off quickly. However, I can not deny that I ate too late last night. Exercised even later. and did not sleep well or for very long. An... Read more

How Can It Hurt Already?

Wednesday, February 03, 2010      0 comments

Okay, day 4 and I am sore. Last night I completed the strength exercises (the second, easier group SP suggested). It was only 6 exercises with no weights. How can I be sore? It even was uncomfortable to walk after school today. But, I did i... Read more
