Sunday, May 16 has been marked on my calendar since late January when I decided to go for it and walk over the bridge this year. This walk benefits the Navy MWR, and it is the one time each year that anyone can walk over this bridge: ... Read more
I lost 40 Pounds!
Monday, May 10, 2010      21 comments

Today my weight loss crossed 40 pounds, and I am ecstatic! I got the 30 pound weight loss award in February. If the past is any indication, I will shift up and down in this range for a while, but I think the important thing is that I did move ... Read more

27 Days to the Bridge Walk
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      6 comments

I'm working toward a strong finish for April. I'm trying to workout 60+ minutes each day this week. Most of April was a good workout month, but I messed up for about 5 days of light or no activity, and I'm still recovering. That was the week ... Read more
More Pool Workout Info
Thursday, April 22, 2010      6 comments

I went to the Pool again Tuesday for my second class of Arthritis stretching and strengthening. I really like this class. It is laid back to say the least. There were more people this time, and some use a walker to get to the edge of the pool... Read more
Workout in the Pool Today

This morning I went to the Arthritis Water Exercise Class at my Community Pool, and I'm so glad I did. It's not aerobics, but focuses on flexibility and strength instead. Nothing was too hard for me, and the water was very warm. I will defini... Read more

Today was my two Drs. Appointments. They are regular 6 month check-ups for Rheumatoid Arthritis and my heart problem. I wanted both of those Drs. To agree I could do the bridge walk. They are nowhere near each other, so this was an all ... Read more
Starting a new week
Monday, April 12, 2010      4 comments

Today was a good eating day. I stayed in my ranges and I think I'm back on track. Of course, that means that my fitness side isn't going as well. I did a total of 42 minutes today. Only 12 of that was walking and I just did some WATP ins... Read more

After two days of eating over my calorie range, today I am just at the bottom of the range. My exercise this week is 407 minutes, and I was disappointed it wasn't higher. What a change that is. I did strength training and walked every d... Read more
Me and Portion Sizes
Friday, April 09, 2010      10 comments

Here is one of my first experiences with Spark People two and a half years ago. I read an article about how to eyeball your portion sizes. It said to use a tennis ball as your model for a starch. At that time I was cooking on the weekends... Read more
Earthquake for Easter
Monday, April 05, 2010      7 comments

This was the biggest earthquake near San Diego since I’ve lived here (15 years). It was very exciting. The movement was a rolling back and forth action. It reminded me of being on a boat. I was chopping veggies in the kitchen, and I actually... Read more

Today I’m updating my resolutions for 2010. I’ve been looking at reports and thinking about my progress, so here goes: 1. 5+ cups of water every day. I'm inching towards this goal as slow as I possibly can! One thing I did was star... Read more
Still thinking about my fitness progress
Thursday, April 01, 2010      5 comments

Today I looked at my strength training report again, and I have not missed a day of strength training in almost 5 weeks. That means doing 2 or more moves each day, alternating body parts. I have also gone above 21 different moves per week in t... Read more
