    6/22/2017 10:26:25 AM, by TAYGRL

    So about a week ago, I began the 14-day trial period with The Peloton spinning app. Now granted, I have a bad knee so I have been using the app with a recumbent bike but still challenging myself using a variety of moderate to difficult rides ranging from 30-75 minutes, sometimes with arm/up...

    The days are closing in til vacation time.

  • Calorie Averages

    6/14/2017 9:32:22 AM, by FITVENTI

    I'm trying something new with my calorie tracking. Rather than judge myself for each day of eating, I am averaging all my calories over the week to get a clearer picture of how much I'm taking in. So, if I do really well for 3 days, but over do it 1 day, I'm less likely to say "forget it, I can't do... Read more

    It's been a long time since I've been inspired. I was on fb the other day and read about a 30 day brave challenge. it was intriguing and I've started it. I realized as I did after the first email where it talks about inspiration that perhaps that is what has been working against me. In the past insp... Read more

    Some of my favorite and most inspiring quotes are song lyrics. "some things are lost, some left behind, some things are better left for someone else to find" Uncle Kracker. This is the mantra that has been playing in my head lately. While we have something happening in our life, a love, a frie... Read more

    6/6/2017 11:23:22 AM, by NORDY44

    My motivation has been sporadic since beginning again. I just can't seem to get into a routine. If I did, I know I'd be back on track more quickly. I am moving more and doing a ton of gardening; however, gardening is generally on the weekends and I need something more consistent. I think I really ju... Read more

    This morning when I got dressed to head to the walking track, I told myself, this morning my goal is 4 miles. Well, my feet had other plans. I should say, my left foot! As usual, the pain got to be more than I had bargained for, so I cut it short at just under 3 miles, but since I have bee... Read more
