Just say "No!"
Monday, January 26, 2009      1 comments

No. I'm not talking about drugs. Nor alcohol. It's something else that gives me the high. Oh, puhleeeeeze. No. Not food, although I guess saying "No!" to seconds would actually work in that case, too! :) But I digress ... I'm actu... Read more

Hula Hooping Rocks!
Tuesday, January 13, 2009      8 comments

y_list?p=F4407865938659A1 When I first started hula hooping, I couldn't hoop. I began using these videos about 6 months ago, just to LEARN how to keep the hoop up! I pretty much couldn't go beyon... Read more
Nap time!

Phew. I'm still exhausted from yesterday's workout. Think I'll be taking it easier today. What exercise? Let's see ... an hour of hula-hooping (I can now WALK, albeit slowly, while hooping), 15 minutes of high-energy dancing, and 45 minutes... Read more

... to start anything. Huh? You're surprised I'd say that? You think maybe I've been reading a few too many horoscopes or visiting some wise old gypsy seer? Or maybe been reading a tarot card upside down? Not really. I'm simply stating... Read more
The perfect fruit ...

As I was saying this morning on one of the SparkTeams I belong to, I don't really like many types of fruit. Well, I DO like fruit, but I prefer the tropical variety, bursting... Read more

There have been many, many times in my life when I've delayed (or weaseled out of) doing something because I was scared of it. And an equal number of times when I was convince... Read more

I've enjoyed being on the BLC-8 ... and I just learned that the BLC-9 is now taking sign-ups. These are 12-week challenges, with the focus on losing the weight - lots of weekly and weekend challenges between the teams on there. In round 8, ... Read more
Pushin' through it!
Friday, January 02, 2009      7 comments

It apparently makes a BIG difference if you decide to just push through it, rather than waiting out a funk sitting on your rear end. Yesterday's post said how blah I was feeling. But then I got it in gear (thanks, everyone for the PUSH!), a... Read more
And sometimes you just don't want to!
Thursday, January 01, 2009      6 comments

Sigh. Yesterday? A fabulous day! Did 90 minutes of hooping, as well as a half-hour of dancing. All of which was great. _And_ I didn't over-eat. Or eat junk food. ... Read more

... to achieve it! Seriously. Have you noticed how that happens? Back in the summer, I vowed to learn to hoop. Within 2 weeks, I was hooping. Then I promised to get to 100 twirls non-stop. Did that. Then I forgot all about my hoop... Read more

Phew! I actually made it to 202 pounds this morning. Feels like I just won some sort of race! (Okay, I'll let you in on a little secret ... I _had_ a race going. April (also on my BLC-8 Onyx Outlaws team) and I were almost at the same weigh... Read more

Monday, December 29, 2008      4 comments

... and that, sadly, is the only motivation behind this blog. :) Yep. It's true. SP just decided to give members a point for each day that they blog. So, of course, being a points-driven-nut, I had to blog. However ... I have NOT... Read more
Working out? Or relaxing?
Monday, December 22, 2008      4 comments

As you all know, I enjoy my time in the gym. However, I've got a nasty tendency to overdo it! So I'll wind up doing 2 hours a day for a couple of weeks, and then burning out ... Read more
