My exercise awesomeness
Saturday, December 22, 2018      15 comments

My trainer evaluated my progress Thursday. I discussed my need to find more exercises that are gentle on my joints and told her I'm satisfied with biking as my aerobic workout. I had to give up my water running! I think my "freedom of movement" ... Read more

My sweet DH picked me up at the airport this afternoon after my five day absence. That in itself is quite a thrill that I'd trust him to drive the 40 miles to the airport which includes the infamous New Jersey Turnpike. It went well. He su... Read more
A few days of forced compliance
Wednesday, December 05, 2018      9 comments

It's been difficult making good choices lately. You all know what happens when you loose your grip. Some things still slip through. I get to have 5 days of good eating as I'm visiting that cousin who keeps pushing me into the keto eating way... Read more

Where did the time go that I thought I had?

I stood on the scale grumbling about the possibility I could loose 7 pounds by the end of the year to get to Onederland. Then I looked at the calendar. That's in 4 weeks! I must be becoming one of "those old people"! I remember gettin... Read more

My quest to eat better totally fell apart. Since I did fine before and during vacation I can only think this is emotional eating. Darned holidays! I had guests who love to eat. I love to feed. There have been great choices, but I d... Read more
Continuing the quest for balance
Monday, November 26, 2018      7 comments

Today is a calendared gym day as opposed to the in-the-moment days. It'll be a delicate balance. My back's been wonky again, I bent and picked a crumbled leaf up off the floor and there you go. I had years of "good back" and now it's acti... Read more

There was no fighting for spaces. Not a line in sight. Sure there was a flurry of activity and many of the faces were not smiling. I didn't even have to wait for a seat... on the bike! ... Read more
