  • Wednesday-rainy and crazy

    10/22/2014 11:42:17 PM, by TERRI289

    Rainy and crazy describes the weather and the day. I woke up to huge pile of puppy dog poop..ugh. At least it cleaned up easy. On the way to work, one car cut me off from the turning lane and ten minutes later another car ran the stop sign..Blessed that I wasn't hurt but really? I know that I ... Read more

  • Playing hooky

    10/22/2014 10:55:21 PM, by NUTINLOOKSLIKE

    I know I said yesterday I was going to go to the gym today, but I have to admit, I played hooky. It was nice and cool this morning, so I decided if it was nice tonight, I would walk with Bear instead. I loved going to the gym, don't get me wrong. But after 30+ years of Florida weather, I knew thi... Read more

  • WOW that's a great feeling

    10/22/2014 10:20:46 PM, by LANCER1984

    i checked my tracker when I got home today and was very impressed. It said I had worked out for a total of 55 minutes today. I did 1730 steps and 15 minutes in the pool. I used both the treadmill and walking around my office. Right now I am at home sitting in my recliner and feeling great. Ton... Read more

  • Joined the gym

    10/22/2014 6:42:43 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    Managed to get myself and brother to the gym and signed up for a 3 month membership. He had to get right back to work, but I stayed and fit in a workout. I seem constitutionally incapable of not running when I get on the treadmill. LOL! I knew it would make my head hurt more, but I said what the... Read more

  • Done--my first deep tissue massage for my shoulder.

    10/22/2014 5:01:08 PM, by CTUPTON

    40 minutes of mild to more than mild pain but I know I needed this. She is a real expert in deep tissue massage. I have tried to find someone off an don for many years. My wonderful chiropractor has this woman work once a week in his office. Maybe 2 years ago I asked my Physical Therapy Office... Read more

  • My (Running) Playlist

    10/22/2014 3:15:21 PM, by COUCH2ROAD_LIZ

    I have to have music when I run and workout in general. It keeps me focused, but I can still relax while doing something as strenuous as running. My playlist includes: Deadmau5 Nervo The Pretty Reckless Rage Against The Machine Flight Facilities & of cours... Read more

  • My last and final plan, Im serious this time!

    10/22/2014 3:06:41 PM, by PAISLEYOWL140

    This past week I havent been able to start my plan because I had a 24 hour bug and then pain in my neck because I need new pillows. The pain caused my head to really hurt so I hardly moved around. Since I was still I had time to think. The Plan: yoga twice everyday November - 30 minute ... Read more

  • Day Five: Favorite seated exercise?

    10/22/2014 2:38:29 PM, by MYLASTDAYONE

    Hi, friends! Day 5 so far, and while my momentum is coming slowly, it's coming. Next step: find exercise that won't hurt my knee. Once we get the living room floor and walls done, I can put the exercise bike in there, but until then, I need some ideas. Do you have a favorite seated workout? Co... Read more

  • What's up Wednesday?

    10/22/2014 2:19:00 PM, by SILLYGOOSE79

    I did make it through the field trip yesterday without splurging on a burger and fries and shake. I did get a salad which was about 517 calories - so about 400 more than the one I packed, but I thought that was fair and I altgered my dinner to a lighter dinner so I stayed within range :) My mi...

    Oh my goodness! I'm having such a wonderful day! Actually, make that a wonderful week. Saturday we hung out with some people that very quickly turned into friends. It was a very mellow, very peaceful, very fun night, and something that even two weeks ago I wouldn't have done. I've spent a lot of my ... Read more

  • Too Much but not enough

    10/22/2014 1:28:44 PM, by TIREDOFBNFAT2

    I guess today was it. My husband finally let me have it about me. His beef was that I take care of everybody else and let myself just go. I stopped getting my hair fixed, buying new clothes and just doing things for me. Mind you, I have three children; one in college (I pay all her bills), one ,... Read more
