Trying out some SparkRecipes
Friday, March 30, 2012      2 comments

Last night I made the cornbread my family loves and looked at the recipes online to find a nice chili or bean soup recipe to go with it. I already had bought some lean ground chicken and beans at the store and had some canned tomatoes on hand. ... Read more
28-day Boot Camp dvd
Thursday, March 29, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I received my 28-day Boot Camp DVD in the mail. This morning I tried it out. I didn't find the suggested workout schedule until this afternoon - great resource, by the way - I just started at the beginning and did about the first hal... Read more
The Plan
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      0 comments

Ever since my friend told me about P90X I've been trying to decide whether or not to try it. Two major factors are affecting my decision - 1st the price (over $100 for the program) is WAY too much, and 2nd pull-ups are part of the program - I d... Read more
My typical morning
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      0 comments

Today was a rather typical morning for me. I got up and read from Lee Strobel's book "The Case for Christ" - our Sunday school class is studying this book right now. Other times I also read from the book "At the Feet of Rabbi Jesus" which I al... Read more
My Perspective on Yoga
Monday, March 26, 2012      1 comments

I made a discovery recently - I really enjoy yoga. My chiropractor recommended doing Wii Fit yoga last year, which attempted briefly. Unfortunately I also tried some of the other Wii Fit activities and pulled some muscles - OUCH! When a frie... Read more

Wow...has it really been 5 years since my last entry? Since then I've done Body for Life a couple times. I discovered some things about my body after the first run through that. During 2010 I kept getting sick over and over again. I co... Read more

I've been thinking a lot about rewarding myself for losing weight. In the past, food has always been the greatest reward of all, but things are changing. One of the things I really want is a perm, so my first reward, when I reach 150 will be a... Read more
A better day
Saturday, September 08, 2007      0 comments

Last night the chiropractor did some major adjusting, and my body has gradually been feeling better all day. My knees don't hurt as much, my hip seems to be MUCH better...only my foot is still having problems. I'm trying hard to take it easy a... Read more
Doing better today...
Thursday, September 06, 2007      0 comments

There's something encouraging about coming off a sick day and stepping on the scales to see a lower number. Sometimes that makes it all worth it. But I'm not focusing on the number. I actually had a day where I wasn't tremendously hungry ... Read more
Weighing in sick at home
Wednesday, September 05, 2007      0 comments

So much for exercising today. I woke up early sick to my stomach and never made it out of the bedroom and bathroom. I did manage to weigh in - my vacation only appears to have set me back a couple tenths of a pound, and my measurements at the ... Read more
A fit birthday
Friday, August 31, 2007      1 comments

When I got up this morning my first thought was not that it was my birthday...but that I'd better get up and start my morning right. I've been on vacation since Sunday - in Jamestown & Williamsburg, VA for a couple days, then at my parents' hou... Read more
Preparing for vacation
Saturday, August 25, 2007      0 comments

It seems as if it's all one step forward and two steps back, as I'm preparing my family of 7 to leave for Jamestown tomorrow. Nothing is actually packed yet, though most of the clothes are at least laid out. I fear I may be burning the m... Read more
A Change of Pace for Cardio
Friday, August 24, 2007      0 comments

Yesterday I woke up with a red, sore, swollen spot on the ball of my foot, and today it was a little better. Determined not to overdo it with walking, I opted for an alternative activity - tennis and bowling on the Nintendo Wii. I had already ... Read more
Cardio and weigh in

My husband planned to work from home this morning, so he didn't have to get up as early. I lay in bed waiting for him to get up so I could start my day...but he didn't! Then I remembered and got up, donned my workout clothes, grabbed my Bible ... Read more
Mint Chocolate Chip vs. Strawberries and Yogurt
Wednesday, August 22, 2007      0 comments

Yesterday afternoon I entered the food I had eaten into my nutrition tracker, and then I also entered my plan for dinner. My after-dinner splurge would be strawberries with a little bit of vanilla yogurt. I knew I had it made, and if I had the... Read more
