Stating My Intentions - in Advance!
Tuesday, June 05, 2012      8 comments

The past two days I've done something I've never done before: attend fitness classes in the late afternoon. I've tried to get to them before but I'm a morning person, and leaving my house at 5:00 pm for an hour of sweating and flailing abo... Read more

When I worked at Ford Motor Company the slogan was, "Quality is Job One". So when I think about Job One I think of the most important, overriding priority. And for the month of June --Job One is ME! I am just going to Roar into the Month of J... Read more
HELL-O, Spark World!

I feel like I've been gone a month! (Oh, wait a minute.) It was a fun trip but here's what I learned about my quest for fitness and a healthy weight: I need to be in control or I'm not in control. The first two weeks we were doing ou... Read more
Dr. Judith Beck-ism for Memorial Day Weekend!
Friday, May 25, 2012      9 comments

Friday Weekend Warm-up: Remember, your body doesn’t know or care whether or not it’s Memorial Day weekend. It also doesn’t know or care if the food you’re eating is free, if everyone else is eating it, or if you’re celebrating. It treats a... Read more

I've had to cut myself some slack because of the traveling and visiting. I've tried to walk as much as I can and I've tried (mostly) to make good choices food-wise. But come on, I've been in BOSTON, home of a zillion restaurants and I'm only h... Read more

This is a much harder journey when away from home. I'm doing the best I can but I'm not in complete control of food choices or exercise options. We found a park that we've been walking/jogging ("wogging") in, but it's been raining a lot th... Read more

Finished grades and am officially a non-working person. I feel wistful about ending my career but mostly what I feel is relief. It was getting to be a pain in the @ss and not much fun anymore, so time to quit. We finally arrived in the ... Read more

The OH state park where we are staying has crappy internet reception so I can't post pictures like I hoped to. Yesterday we went to the boyhood home of William Howard Taft in downtown Cincinnati. It is run by the National Park Service and was ... Read more

The Mini was awesome, as expected! Yes, it was HOT but the storms did not materialize, praise the Lord. This is TC and me in the parking lot at 6:00 am. ... Read more
Waiting in Indy!
Friday, May 04, 2012      6 comments

We drove from Nashville to Indy yesterday and our campground is about 5 miles outside downtown Indy. It's clean if not picturesque, but we chose it for proximity not ambience! I feel like I've been a slug with all these pre-race rest days.... Read more
Be Open to New Experiences -- You Just Might Be Surprised

We went to the Grand Old Opry last night. I'm NOT a country music fan. AT ALL. I didn't know any of the artists on the bill. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it. AT ALL. But I was wrong! First of all, the Grand Old Opry is primarily a RADI... Read more

Well, I was extra-dilligent yesterday; walked over 15,000 steps, did a Coach Nicole video (in the VERY tight quarters of a 25-foot travel trailer), drank my water and ate well. So I'm back to 154, Yay me! TC and I don't eat out much ... Read more
