My brain's in a whirlwind!
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      11 comments

So many changes...my little brain is processing like crazy. Still working solo w/ a personal trainer. Each session is an explosion of movements I've never heard of or experienced (and wondering what pyscho came up with this idea!). I'm a people ... Read more

Hoo...wheeee. That's all I can say! Whew! Shaking arms & legs, hot and sweaty, panting. I'm pretty sure I mentioned to her at least a dozen times before we met how out of shape I am (plus the woman has eyes!) Ya know the machine I've been e... Read more

To the gym to burn 448 calories on the elliptical, then my 2nd day of ST on the machines. Then to hike w/dh and friends. The description of the hike said 1.5 miles to the waterfalls. What we did was this: hiked 3 hours and 50 minutes ... Read more

After dh & I biked, I continued to bike alone a few more miles. It didn't seem to "hurt his feelings" at all. He was sore and ready to quit; I wanted to ride some more. We were both happy. Win/win. We joined another couple at our favorite b... Read more
Can't believe I did this!!! Not me!

Yep, drum roll, please.....I joined a gym while I'm here on vacation! It's too far to get to a gym at home (and treacherous roads which we must plow). And truthfully, I don't like to spend $$ on myself.... it seems ....selfish. So I spent 5... Read more

Or more importantly, how will I respond?!!! That's the real question. This is our 4th year visiting this place. We love it here..except...it is the devil's den for me. Dh loves to eat out. I get bored...at loose ends... and I snack. D... Read more

Someone stole our bikes!

We're on a biking vacation...we chose the destination based on warm weather, sunshine and great biking. Two nights ago, someone stole our bikes....cut through heavy duty chains. The bikes were chained to each other AND to the cement stairca... Read more

My dh and I are vacationing in a warm climate...and loving the sunshine, shorts and sandal routine! At home there was so much snow there was an avalanche and the mtn pass was closed for two days while they searched for a lost snowboarder. ... Read more

This info was depicted on a 2'x3' colorful, poster showing photos of these food items. It hung on a wall in the Cardiac Unit of a hospital -- do you see the relationship between the food & the Heart patients? Remember the poster when making tou... Read more
Shoveling in the sunshine!

Finally! A beautiful day ... and a temperature above 0 degrees! Shoveled twice in the sunshine and thoroughly enjoyed it! I really wobbled a couple of days ago when I discovered a bag of gum drops hiding in a gift box .....but I'm over it a... Read more

Scale went down. Yay! Rode at a harder level on stationary bike...whew...tough. Muscles have been lazy for much too long! Life interrupted my eating schedule...but no chocolate, PB, soda or cream-based soup. Needed more good fat & prot... Read more

It's too soon to clean. It's too soon to cook. It's been snowing steadily for 3 days and during yesterday's 3rd session of shoveling (at 9 pm last night), I broke my shovel into 3 pieces! (I was havin' fun choppin' that hard snow! Oops!) I... Read more
Raking snow? Yep, burns calories!
Sunday, December 12, 2010      2 comments

The snow was thigh high and my job was to rake off the snow on top of 5 slash piles which were 10'-12' high. When that snow came down, it was then chest high. My gaiters don't come up to my thighs or my chest --- so it was chilly. Then I raked ... Read more
