I went in Friday to make up a couple of hours. I left two hours early the first night of conferences since I didn't have any more scheduled that night. I made the most of my weekend and worked out each day. I used the "extra" time to put in... Read more

An update

I've had parent teacher conferences the past two nights. I am tired and haven't caught up on sleep from helping my friend during the birth of her daughter. However, I found myself on the elliptical at 5:00 this morning. Forty minutes late... Read more

A new life.

I spent 31 hours at a hospital waiting for a friend's baby to be born. Her heart rate kept going down after contractions. I really thought we were going to have a C-section, but after Mom's water broke, on it's own, she came within a matter of ... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts When numbers are important.

Monday, February 23, 2015      25 comments

After blogging about how numbers don't define us, and they shouldn't, I thought of a few number that are important to us. Some that may come to mind are blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood sugar, heart rate, etc. The ones I think of ... Read more

More numbers.

I went prom dress shopping with my younger daughter. It will be my last time as my girls are all grown up and I'll have two in college next year. I only have boys left so it will be dress shirts, ties, dress pants and dress shoes. My boys are no... Read more

Same, but different and constantly learning.

I am maintaining my weight well. It's the same, but my body is different. The scale is the same, but the jeans fit different. Maybe it's age and this "lovely" perimenopause. Maybe it's the lack of running. Maybe it's the strength training t... Read more

Feeling good!

Tuesday, February 17, 2015      10 comments

I am feeling good! My weight is good, my arm isn't too sore and I'm feeling rested. I didn't get to bed very early, but I'm still bright-eyed this morning. I was quite hungry, which is a sign that I didn't do any late night snacking! Read more

New art.

It's been a great weekend. All my kids were home so lots of family time. We found some great buys at Goodwill, including a deer antler and dog kennel that fits in my car. Halo is set now! I stayed in my calorie range and I got lots of exercis... Read more

When do you admit that you may not "come back?"

I thought that I may have overdone it by using the arms on my elliptical, but then I realized that I did 15 minutes of Zumba and danced at the Valentines Day Dance with my students. Those movements, that I haven't done in a while, may also hav... Read more

I think I overdid it.

Last night I used my elliptical for 30 minutes. I used the arm bars for the first time. The chiropractor had told me, at first, not to use them. I thought it was time to try it since I'm almost done with therapy. Well, I think I overdid i... Read more

Three day weekend

Friday, February 13, 2015      9 comments

It's a three day weekend for me. I'm focusing on some "extra" exercise. Although, I've been doing well. Today I did 90 minutes with the help of our Valentine Dance. I'm going to get some new ink on Monday, too. I'm excited. This tattoo ... Read more

Breaking in

Thursday, February 12, 2015      11 comments

I was asked if orthotics need to be broken in. The answer is, I think your body needs to be broken in. The orthotics are pretty stiff and are molded to an individual foot. I know I've been a little sore, but it actually feels like my body is "re... Read more

Well, I picked up my orthotics last Wednesday. I've been wearing them for almost a week. All was well, until today. Today was the first day that I "felt" my right arch. I'm wondering if it's just my body adjusting to being "aligned" all the tim... Read more

Not a good weekend for eating.

Monday, February 09, 2015      15 comments

Perimenopause is in full swing. My appetite is off the charts, I wake up hot and throwing off blankets in the middle of the night and my weight is up. I'm going to be more vigilant with my eating. I need to pack and keep a stash of healthy snack... Read more

Sharing the load (a vent)

I've been married for almost 22 years. I have always done the bills and taxes. I've made most of the decisions for retirement savings, except the husband does have a work IRA and is able to selling company stock. This year I gave him the ch... Read more
