So, six months on SP, and what have I achieved? Pretty much zilch. My weight rockets up to 215 or so, and back down to 204 or so. Mostly, it's happy right around 208, right around my middle, my butt, etc. And it's all my own doing. Eve... Read more
Socks make a difference ...
Tuesday, July 01, 2008      2 comments

So there I was, hooping away today, and for some reason, I simply couldn't get past about 15 twirls before I'd drop the hoop. After trying all morning, I finally figured out the culprit - the socks I was wearing! Apparently, even plain cot... Read more
I can twirl!!!
Monday, June 30, 2008      5 comments

Okay, it's not elegant. At all. But the hoop goes round and round and round and round. Yay. I've now got to being consistently able to do 15 to 20 twirls. And in one awesome instance, I had it going for 42 twirls. WHEEEE! It feels lik... Read more
Hooping away

That's been my exercise for the day. Not a WHOLE lot, either. But I've been having fun. I've been leaving the hoop in the middle of the living room floor. So, every time I walk by (I live in a TINY condo ... walking by happens ALL the time... Read more
I have a hoop

... it's sparkly green. It's apparently filled with water (MrsHoneyC would love this - _everything_ is all about water!), and it's a lot of fun. I still can't get it to do the anti-gravity thing - but now I have a sore waist/back. :) Cool -... Read more

Okay. I shouldn't have but I did. Ate and ate and ate those yummy fried corn tortillas. Shouldn't have. Did. Now I weigh 4 pounds more than yesterday. Sigh. 208 again. I know WHY I did it - they were yummy. :) Why I didn't resist - didn't w... Read more
Getting it done!
Thursday, June 26, 2008      9 comments

I'm finally learning something. Something I knew all along, but hadn't been applying to the weight-management process. If I want to achieve something, all I have to do is take the small, everyday steps. And take them every day. That's... Read more
Keeping busy
Tuesday, June 24, 2008      5 comments

It's interesting. Once I decided NOT to focus on the weight issue, it's stopped BEING an issue. :) I'm just SO busy right now, that it makes no difference to me what I weigh - but I'm still keeping the healthy choices, thank you very much. ... Read more
I'm a scanner
Monday, June 23, 2008      5 comments

No, not the machine. I'm talking about Barbara Sher's book "Refuse to Choose", where she identifies people like Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison as being scanners: people who love to learn, so they "dabble" in everything th... Read more
Day 22: Reflecting on the challenge ...
Sunday, June 22, 2008      4 comments

So, it's done. Over. Finished with. The 21-day challenge, I mean. My goal for this challenge was to get in 60 minutes of cardio 5 times a week. I actually managed to meet that goal! How do I feel? Well, about 12 days into the challeng... Read more
Day 21: End of challenge!!!
Saturday, June 21, 2008      4 comments

Okay, it's time ... almost midnight, I mean. :) The challenge officially ends today. Just a question left to answer tomorrow. :) Hmmm. I think I may be able to manage that. So today - 8 am to just about 11:20 pm was seminar, seminar, l... Read more
Day 20: BUSY
Saturday, June 21, 2008      3 comments

I was going to skip my cardio this morning. Just did my core ab work and got ready for the seminar. Then I wound up WALKING 2 miles, plus another two running errands before the seminar started. And had to walk another 40 minutes or so at the "lu... Read more
Day 19: Who needs wet noodles?
Thursday, June 19, 2008      4 comments

With all the talk of wet noodles, guess what happened? Yep. I went and made pasta. And sauce. With a LOT of veggies in it. And I ate it. No, I did NOT overeat - one cup of pasta, one cup of the veggie-rich sauce. Yumm. ... Read more
Day 18: Really looking forward to Sunday
Wednesday, June 18, 2008      6 comments

Why Sunday? Because it's the last day of this challenge. I may not have a _net_ loss for the 21 days, but I sure as heck have lost 4 pounds. At least 2 pounds, TWICE. :) Okay, focus. Goal - at least 60 minutes cardio 5 times a week. W... Read more
Day 17: Back on the wagon - sadder, NOT wiser! :)
Tuesday, June 17, 2008      9 comments

Okay, y'all. You thought I'd LEARN my lesson, right? Like I haven't had the same lesson thrust on me before - but I'm rather determined to see this thing through to the bitter end. I've met many fine (and VERY fit) folks here, who've struggled t... Read more
