This morning, I got so dizzy in the shower that I fell. Then I got back up and tried to get my towel, must have turned off the water, I don't know, but I fell again. Then I stayed down a few moments until it dissipated a little. I was nervous ... Read more

Friday, December 31, 2010      3 comments

Been reading other blogs of year wrap ups and what they hope for in 2011, etc. and it has gotten me thinking. 2010 was a good year for me. I lost 40 pounds in 2010 which makes for an average of just over 3 pounds a month. This in spite ... Read more

Thursday, December 02, 2010      10 comments

As an assignment we have been asked to write a post on why we are taking part in the 5% challenge and what do we hope to get out of it. Now that I am at goal weight, I don't want to loose 5% of my body weight anymore, so I can't entirely take c... Read more

For my last formerly broken toe update, I believe. Finally, I feel like the darn thing is well. After I broke my toe and had it straightened, I felt like steep inclines bothered me. Well, on Tuesday, I tried incline 8 on the treadmill, an inc... Read more

Friday, September 24, 2010      5 comments

This is the first, and probably only time, I will come out of the gynecologists office with a chuckle. Let me explain. Last year, I started doing the calorie counting thing on top of the exercise that I was already good at around December 1st ... Read more
Broken Toe Update/Whine
Friday, September 10, 2010      4 comments

Call yourself warned, the whine part is in the title! :) I broke my toe May 27th and a week later it was set as it was badly out of place and then sent home to heal. I saw the orthopaedic a time or two after that, but he said that I don't... Read more
Treadmills and Scrap Paper
Monday, August 09, 2010      4 comments

I use a treadmill at home on a regular occasion, renting videos at the library and exercising to them. In previous summers, I have extended my walking distance and speed, but not this year. I broke my toe end of May and did exercise, but it wa... Read more

Toe, Blogging and Support
Thursday, June 17, 2010      3 comments

What a combination of random topics to combine into one blog post? Just the way my mind works or doesn't work I guess. My toe is getting better I think. I took a 30 minute walk on flat sidewalk in my neighborhood with camera and made it j... Read more
Toe Update
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      5 comments

I saw the orthopaedic doctor today and he had to numb the toe and straighten it. Not the most fun thing around. So now I am feeling a tad sorry for myself. He said no exercise for 8 days, until he sees me again on Wednesday next week, as he i... Read more

Can you believe I broke my toe last night? I was carrying the recycling into the garage and came down on slightly on the step, slipped and fell and somehow broke my toe. I saw a doctor today who did xrays and it is broken. He wants me to see ... Read more
Pay It Forward?
Friday, May 21, 2010      1 comments

I just watched the Pay It Forward movie. Very touching and tragic movie at the end. A kid in the movie comes up with the idea that you pay it forward to three people and then each of those people pay it forward to three more and soon it become... Read more
