If a child can do it...

Today I watched my 11 month old granddaughter struggle to crawl, stand up and climb. Her little legs got caught under her so many times and yet she managed to get them straightened out each time. It looked like it was so difficult. As I watch... Read more
putting together DIY items
Sunday, January 08, 2012      1 comments

Why is it that no matter what DYI item you purchase, it's never easy to put together the "some assembly required" item? I always start in the best of moods, looking forward to the great product I'm going to get and enjoy. The first step is dis... Read more
On my way
Saturday, January 07, 2012      0 comments

Well I made it through 2 more days of the January challenge. Including the 30 minute cardio. It wasn't easy getting out of bed, turning on the computer and/or TV and working with Nicole, but I self-talked my way forward. I've been faithfully ... Read more
I'm challenged
Friday, January 06, 2012      2 comments

Its the fourth day of the challenge and so far I've managed to get up every morning and do the strength videos. Even on the day I had to go babysit. I've managed two days of cardio so far. I had to come home tonight and do another 20 minutes ... Read more

a year later and I am in great need to get back on track. It's amazing how little changes in your life can throw all your good intentions out the window. I have been binging for a year and it's time to get back on track. So my goal for this m... Read more
Boot Camp One year later
Wednesday, December 08, 2010      1 comments

Last year about this time, my daughter was trying to convince me to participate in the New Year’s Boot Camp Challenge and I was resisting. I couldn’t imagine myself doing any of those routines. I hadn’t exercised for many years. I had just beg... Read more
Still going strong
Wednesday, October 13, 2010      2 comments

I haven't been blogging lately, but I have still been on target. It's finally become habit to watch what I eat, get up and exercise in the morning, watch my salt and track my food and exercise. I still keep my journal to write my daily successe... Read more
Sewing again

I made a new pair of pj bottoms today. Four sizes smaller than my previous ones!! They’re shorts; bright lime green and have faces of Elvis all over them. I'm so excited to be able to sew again now that things fit better. I realized I like sewi... Read more
Today's thoughts
Saturday, July 31, 2010      0 comments

Today we stopped at a farmer’s market and bought some fresh nectarines and peaches. I ate one of the nectarines this afternoon and it was so good. But I don’t know if the others will be as good, they aren’t quite as ripe. I love this time of ... Read more

Today was an off day for strength training-I think I’ll like this for awhile. But we’ll see. If I find that I don’t do my exercises on the days I’m supposed to, then I’ll have to go back to everyday. At least it keeps my habit going. I... Read more
Need to Journal again
Wednesday, July 28, 2010      1 comments

I’m starting to fall into some bad habits. When you rely on what you think you already know, you gradually regress to old habits. So I'm back to writing my journal to keep reminding me why I want to develop good habits. And to remind me that I... Read more
Taking a break from writing
Friday, July 23, 2010      0 comments

I’ve been sloughing off on writing my spark page blog lately. Not that I haven’t been writing in my journal, I’m just not posting it. I really have had nothing to report. Every day has just been “normal”. I’ve finally developed some habits t... Read more
Sleeveless tanks and shorts
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      1 comments

They said it would be cooler today, but it didn’t feel like it. Probably because it’s been hot for the last four days and not cooling down at night. It does make it hard to exercise because I’m starting off warm. My enthusiasm just isn’t there... Read more
More heat
Saturday, July 17, 2010      1 comments

It was another hot day today but our house was pretty cool. So I didn’t go shopping and I didn’t go swimming, I just spent it in front of my computer. It’s not that I don’t get enough computer time at work, but there I can’t do what I want. S... Read more
100 Degrees and counting
Friday, July 16, 2010      2 comments

Today was hot; 100 + degrees hot. But one nice thing about working in a high rise is the air conditioning. The only way you know its hot is if you go outside on a break. I know it was hot today because I did go out for a break. I had to get ... Read more
