Unexpected Benefits of Making Exercise a Priority
I have read that people who exercise first thing in the morning are more likely to stick with it over time. I think I get it! Today is Week 1, Day 3 of the 5K program (aka Saturday) and due to a weekend chock full of HS Reunion activities, start... Read more
Planning to Overcome the Obstacles
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
Yet Another Day 1
Today was Week 1 Day 1 of the SP 5K Your Way program. It seems like my life has been a succession of Day 1's. Here is hoping I am (and working toward my) becoming a runner this time.
I was able to "jump start" this effort while on vacati... Read more

What December Might Hold
I am feeling like December 1st is bringing a new start. Not sure exactly why.

Teacher work day and we went out for lunch. I chose the Burger King Veggie Burger. When I went to enter this meal into the nutrition tracker I checked the Burger King website to get the nutrition details. Good news it is 22 g of protein and o... Read more
Feeling a little stronger each day!
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
Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back
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
What possessed me to buy a pizza? I justified it by getting plain cheese instead of Pepperoni (like I would have in the past & really wanted). I know better. I just need to act better.
It felt like a baby step, eating plain cheese instea... Read more

All day I had little surprise that were better than what I planned and in every situation it was "trading up". Started with the offer of a Hot Baked Potato (with my favorite toppings) for lunch instead of my cold PB sandwich (the standard go to ... Read more
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?
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
