Ahhh, a grey rainy late spring day. The garden is on autopilot - I pulled one or two weeds but that was just to prove I was necessary. I was going to do a 12 mile ride this morning but it was raining in sheets so I let myself put it off ... Read more
New Jeans!
Thursday, June 03, 2010      7 comments

Back in December my clothes were so tight that they left wounds. I had large raw spots on my hips where my jeans were cutting into me. I would get home and want nothing but to take my clothes off to don something looser. It got so bad that I ... Read more

I am still not all that confident in my goal setting abilities. I want to challenge myself but I don't want to set myself up for certain failure. So I am assuming goal-setting is like pretty much everything else in life - I will get better wit... Read more

I went swimming today with my friend Marlene. She showed me a new little-used public access to a local little lake. To get to it there is a lovely little walk in the woods to a small little beach opening up to a lovely little sand-bottom swimm... Read more

I have biked the Little Chicago Loop three days in a row! Today I actually rode it by myself. Oddly, I have never rode my bike that far all by my self... normally I would ride it with my husband or friend Alice, I never realized how biking is... Read more

Over the last 7 days things have been weird... I went away for three days last week had to trust my own portioning without my food scale. I think I overcompensated because I ended up eating far too few calories those days out of fear of ... Read more
Silly yoga posture of the day...

Today's silly yoga: Super Hero Poses! My favorite: place feet three feet apart, fists on hips, head turned to the right lookin- steely eyed into the distance while expanding your pride-filled chest with oxygen. Then curl your arms, contr... Read more
Chores as a Workout - still in search of my inner jock.

So, a couple months ago, when I first started to track my exercise, I saw such things as "gardening" and "housework" and thought: 'pschaw... counting those as exercise is just cheating, why undermine my efforts by inflating my daily cardio m... Read more

Woosh it's a warm one today! I know it happens but it is hard to acclimate when we go from 3 inches of snow to 93 degrees in less than three weeks! Went out walking through woods and wetlands this morning. We walked 4 miles with a break i... Read more

Lets face it, exercising is really out of character for me. My ideal day is sitting in the garden knitting socks under a tree. I tend to be very good at sit down things - mathematics, knitting, and listening to old people tell me about the goo... Read more

Not sure what is up... other than I have eaten really oddly the last few days and was wooed by my husband into going out to dinner for Italian last night. Now my tummy is all messed up. Not food poisoning or anything, just all messed up. ... Read more

I'm back! Did you miss me? This week I went off to a two-night environmental ethics and leadership workshop. It was a honor to be nominated and I had a marvelous time. This, though, was the first time in my spark-venture that I had ... Read more

I won't labor the point... which is not easy because I really feel like spray painting this onto every train car that pulls through central Wisconsin today. I weighed myself this morning... 199.8 I have now lost 30 pounds since Decemb... Read more
