Here I'm getting stronger every day, my clothes are fitting better, I know my heart and blood vessels must be healthier (blood pressure is consistently falling) and then I get wrapped up in not losing 2 pounds this week. Good grief, girl! This i... Read more

Me as a truck.
Monday, March 22, 2010      1 comments

Jogging along looking at traffic this morning made me think about the wonders of the automobile. How to ruin a truck? Put contaminated fuel in the tank, never change the oil or add antifreeze, and load the bed with far more than it can hold. Wel... Read more

I need to slow down. I'm enjoying these changes so much and want the days and weeks to fly by so I can get to my goals. Whoa, nelly. Days are to be savored and used up, one at a time. I have to metaphorically slap myself awake, as in back to ... Read more
I can do squats
Tuesday, March 16, 2010      4 comments

Did I tell you I can do squats??? Well, by golly, I can. I'm truly amazed. I'm so amazed that when I realized this on last Friday-doing them during the weight training with 2-8# weights, I did one after another. Needless to say I could hardly si... Read more

As I sit here, blogging at the end of another busy day, crossing my legs, I know something is different. My top foot doesn't stick out as far. That means my legs are smaller. I notice it when I walk as well. How lovely! My hope is that this shri... Read more

Up early to get squashed and scanned-as in the yearly mamogram and bone density (should call it bone destiny since bone strength matters so much) I asked the nurse how long this coughing crud was lasted and she said about a month. Great. Swung b... Read more

Slept late, as in until after 7, since I ended up taking some nyquil-wanna-be medicine at 2. Just couldn't stop coughing and needed to sleep. I am so much better. Really turned the corner last evening and knew I was on the mend. Pulled out some ... Read more
