Loose Guidelines?
Monday, May 11, 2020      3 comments

When I told my cousin I had to get my BMI back below 25 she asked what is it now. When I said 26 she laughed. She said 26 is fine; I can't be expected to conform to the under 25 rule because of my background and body type. Huh? Her exp... Read more
Remember How It Feels to FINISH Exercising
Wednesday, March 04, 2020      1 comments

My head has felt clogged for a few days so I haven't been exercising much. It's a beautiful sunny day today, and I was motivated to try strength training even though I didn't really feel up to it. Guess what? I not only managed to do the en... Read more
Atkins Ads!!
Tuesday, January 28, 2020      7 comments

Almost every time I open the Sparkpeople app an ad opens for Atkins. It has a picture of Rob Lowe staring at me! Has anyone else seen this? And does it seem like Rob Lowe is looking right at you all day?!?... Read more
The Pain is Gone...Now What?
Thursday, November 21, 2019      4 comments

I think my troubles were the result of something my rheumatologist suggested I try. I haven't used it for a few days and today is the first day I feel normal! I'm not going to use it again until after Thanksgiving...I don't want to feel miserabl... Read more
Pain, pain go away

Ugh! I have been in terrible pain since Friday which has left me sitting still all day ever since. Not good for exercise, much less losing weight. I haven't posted anything in this week's challenge yet. Sorry Warriors. I see two doctors this ... Read more

It took I don't know how many phone calls to follow up and figure out the maze of insurance rules, but I am finally resuming physical therapy on Tuesday! I can't wait!!! Something about losing control of your own body is very unnerving. I u... Read more

I saw my rheumatologist yesterday and he's stumped about the fluid in my legs. It's tough getting back in shape with limited mobility, but I have to keep trying. That's what's great about Sparkpeople...there are a lot of people fighting all kind... Read more
Perfect Weekend Weather!

The temps were in the low 80s today with no humidity - VERY unusual for August. Before my injury I would have gone indoor rock climbing this morning, then quickly showered so I could somewhere just because the weather was nice. I took out ... Read more
Accountability - Let's Try Again
Thursday, June 27, 2019      1 comments

So the day after I say I'm going to blog about my workouts for accountability I don't blog! I need to add the task to my To Do list. For the record, I did do Turbofire Stretch 10 yesterday. I needed it. No workout today. I planned to d... Read more

So I've noticed that recording my workouts is great for keeping track, but I'm not as consistent. When I record my workouts online I feel like the whole world knows if I skip a day. The good part is, if I miss a day but explain why someone is al... Read more
Re-start: Day 2
Monday, May 06, 2019      3 comments

Since I'm easing back into working out I did Turbo Jam 20 today. An oldie but a goodie! A quick cardio workout just to see if I could handle it. A little minor muscular pain towards the end, but nothing ice couldn't handle. I'm ready for Day 3! ... Read more

Wow, it's been quite a while since I wrote a blog! To bring you up to date, although the stress fractures healed (there was a second one right after the one in my previous blog) I am still not walking at a normal pace, or able to walk down stair... Read more
Biggest Challenge Yet
Saturday, October 07, 2017      2 comments

The Fall 5% Challenge started today, and this will be my most difficult one yet. I have a stress fracture in one leg, so I won't be working out for awhile. I thought about quitting before we signed up for teams, but one of the things I lik... Read more
