    There is a stretch of our lane that runs along side a forest and faces west, abutting onto a field. It catches afternoon sunshine. It's about 1/10th of a mile long and over the years I have planted daffodils along the edge. I plant a mixture of them so I get a long period of bloom and it's f... Read more

    I'm happy being myself, which I've never been before.

  • Numbers, Numbers

    1/31/2020 1:01:39 PM, by LADYCALICO

    I know we aren't supposed to get obsessed with numbers on the scale and need to focus on non-scale measures of improved health and fitness. That being said, hypocrite that I am, I decided to look at another number that I hadn't checked in awhile--my BMI. Is that any better--no, but at least it's so... Read more

    1/31/2020 10:48:33 AM, by AFERRARI

    So the month has come to an end - all 31 days of it. Was it a good month? Did I succeed in any of my goals? It certainly was a month filled with stuff - good stuff and bad stuff. The bad stuff I will not talk about as it is in the past and I am not going to live in the past. Live in the presen... Read more

  • The Restaurant Marathon

    1/30/2020 7:09:32 AM, by BESSHAILE

    It's not really a marathon - more of a triathlon. three days in a row of eating high calorie high flavor food with friends. A bunch of triggers just waiting to go BANG. We all know that eating with friends can tempt us to go overboard - even if they aren't food pushers. Also, if we are chatting... Read more

  • Day 5: 100 Day Blogging Challenge: Ending stronger

    1/30/2020 6:54:04 AM, by SPARKNB

    January's almost done, and I usually suck at endings, partly because I often let things dwindle down, due to lack of persistence. I've never really thought about working on / focusing on them, but that might be a missing piece of my 'mental game' in both this pursuit of health and fitness, and al... Read more

So far the longest in 2020 that I've worked out was 75 min, which was what was happening today: 3 Small victories: -15+15+25 min indoor cycling (at 4:00, 6:00, ... Read more
