Saturday, February 05, 2011      3 comments

I'm almost done with this challenge and I'm finding that the daily walking is on the verge of becoming a habit. Hooray! I also noticed that I finished January with just under 1000 fitness minutes. That got me thinking, can I reach 1000 fitn... Read more

God is good to me. Really good. - I'm working from home this week ... that means I'm not travelling in this yucky weather. And my neighbor has already been here to plow me out from yesterday's "lake effect" snowfall. I think I got 4-6", base... Read more

It was cold when I left the house this morning. My car said it was 4F, but that's +4, not -4. There's a difference. I was wrapped up tight with a scarf across my face, my hood up, insulated gloves on my hands, and good winter shoes on my feet. ... Read more

I've been doing the 10-minute daily exercise challenge for a week now, and I haven't missed a day. I've been walking at least 15 minutes a day on the days I do ST and 30+ minutes on the other days. I'm determined to build a habit of daily eserci... Read more

Today is MLK day and a bank holiday. That means that I got a holiday at the end of my weekend. It's been a great day. I started by turning off the alarm clock and warning my kids not to call before 7. I actually slept until shortly after 8... Read more

I didn't look at the thermometer before heading outside this morning. The sun was shining. It wasn't windy. The snow had been plowed on Saturday. And it really didn't feel too bad. The truck started right up - nothing special there. So as I he... Read more

You may have figured out by now that my day job is in the education field - but not in a school setting. I teach adults in their work place how to take advantage of their employer-sponsored retirement plans. I enjoy the travel and I enjoy the op... Read more

I got up early this morning and drove through a couple of inches of newly fallen snow to have breakfast with a friend. Our traditional breakfast place is in Fish Creek - about an hour north of me. When I got up, I discovered the snow (it wasn't... Read more

I have to remind myself of that periodically. I CAN do this! I CAN make good choices. I CAN get my walking done, even when I don't feel like it. I CAN eat healthy. Two small victories today. - I've had a butternut squash waiting to be used ... Read more
