Been a long time!
Thursday, January 16, 2020      8 comments

I haven't blogged for a long time... yikes. Was diagnosed with osteoporosis last fall. I asked the doctor if I could see a physical therapist to line up a strength program for me. Just finished with PT last week and am happy how much stro... Read more

I got an app for those 30 day challenges - working on the abs - boy do they need working!! I just completed day three and I can really feel the muscles getting a work out. Looking forward to tomorrow's rest day, that's for sure. Yes, th... Read more

I've been waking up in the morning with a stiff back - it's not because the bed is bad - just thought it was a function of age. Last Monday when I got up, I thought, well why don't you do a plank and see if that helps. Well, lo and behold, it ... Read more
Did not do myself any favors this past week....
Sunday, February 17, 2013      3 comments

I guess I was getting very discouraged that despite the added exercise, there has been no change in my weight. I didn't get on the elliptical once all week and bought a full sized bag of corn chips and finished them off in two days. I had ... Read more
Driveway and front walk all cleared out!

That's a view of my house and the truck --- the walk was shoveled out by a friend of mine (woke up at 5:30 this morning to the sound of a shovel scraping the snow o... Read more
Survived the storm! Just need to shovel out now...
Saturday, February 09, 2013      4 comments

I thought sure I'd have racked up a slew of fitness minutes shoveling today, but the wind and snow never settled down, so I'm waiting until tomorrow to clean the walk out. So, I just finished 25 minutes on the elliptical. We had a lot of s... Read more
Tucked in and waiting for the storm!

Stayed home from work today in anticipation of the storm. It snowed this morning - but it was light, fluffy snow - easy to take care of. Walked down to the hospital first thing to have blood taken. I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday to... Read more
Will have to hunker down in a couple of days!

Right now, the weather folks are predicting a huge storm on Friday/Saturday. Well, it might be a huge storm... and then again, it might not be all that huge. Just as long as it takes this really, really cold weather away, I'll be happy. ... Read more
Eyes are fine
Monday, February 04, 2013      5 comments

Had a checkup with the eye doctor today. My long range vision has improved so the top part of my glasses aren't doing me any good. The lower part, the reading part, could be tweaked a little, but it's really not necessary yet. My doctor sugge... Read more
Ignoring the Super bowl tonight!
Sunday, February 03, 2013      6 comments

Since the Patriots aren't playing and neither the 49ers or the Ravens have any meaning to me, I'm ignoring the game tonight. Reduced to watching a Golden Girls marathon on the Hallmark Channel! Took a walk this morning - so didn't bother w... Read more
Stocked up with yarn!

Downtown Belfast was having a February thaw sale today -- I tried the furniture store, looking for a table to put next to my stove - alas no luck. But I did have fun at the yarn store - everything was 20% off -- got some new needles, markers an... Read more
Going to be a month of doctor appointments!

I just looked at my calendar and saw that I have an appointment with my eye doctor, an appointment with my dentist, an appointment with an eye specialist and an appointment with my regular doctor. And this is all in the first two weeks of Febru... Read more
working my way back.....
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      3 comments

Have done the elliptical twice this week - 25 minutes each time. There are two basketball games this week, and that messes up my normal evening routine... but it's fun to get out and support the local high school kids. (Our boys team plays a ... Read more
Ah, yes, the slippery slope......

You are all right - once you stop exercising, it's hard to get back on track! Despite my promises to myself to exercise this weekend, it didn't happen. Whoops..... I forget what happened yesterday, but today was Pies on Parade day in Rockland... Read more
Fell off the train for a few days....
Thursday, January 24, 2013      2 comments

I just haven't felt like exercising the past few days.... this will be the third day I've missed. Just am so tired.. and that, coupled with not seeing any weight loss is discouraging. So, am giving myself a few days to whine about it and will ... Read more
