Progress Report!

It’s been a while since I’ve given an update post on my physical health, so guess what?  Today is your unlucky LUCKY day!  Actually, I’ve been waiting to post about my health until I’ve had something good to report.  Recovery can be so incredibly slow, sometimes it feels like you’re not making any progress at […]

Scattered Thoughts for Today

Yesterday was my first post-op appointment since my hysterectomy on June 5th.  I am happy to report that I am finally beginning to feel an improvement – as in, the debilitating fatigue is beginning to disappear.  I can actually feel like progress is being made, and because of this I am totally fine with the […]

Who Do I Think I am, Anyway?

Sometime in late August I took the dogs for a walk around our local county park this weekend.  We walked the same trails that we used to run back in early Spring.  We walked along the river, across the wooden bridge that crosses the water and up the steep hill, where I paused for a […]

Comfort Zone Challenge: Yoga!

For as long as I can remember, I’ve never been good in exercise classes.  In grade school when teams were being chosen for kickball, I was one of those kids who was always picked last (and you thought that was just made-up movie stuff, didn’t you?)  It’s true.  I sucked at sports.  I was such […]

My month-long hula-hooping experiment

Well, it has been almost a month since I started my hula-hooping experiment.  I have been hooping faithfully for 20 minutes a day since January 7th, take away 4 days for not feeling well.  When I posted my two-week progress post I mentioned that I would be giving an update on my measurements.  I can […]

Two weeks on the Hula-Hoop

As promised, I am here with an update on my hula-hooping experiences.  I am going it alone as of right now since Karen (my unofficial hula-hoop partner) over at Waisting Time  is recovering from surgery and is out of commission until further notice.  Get well soon, Karen! As some of you know, I received and […]

Chest Strap Included.

A hodge-podge of thoughts today.  First up, I finally broke down and bought a heart rate monitor a month or so ago.  I did NOT want one with a chest strap – no way.  I didn’t care how reliable they were; I dug in my heels.  A pain to strap on.  Uncomfortable.  Wet the strap […]

Monday Musings: Readers, help me get my groove on!

I have about as much grace while exercising as an elephant in high heels.  You know this if you read my little rant about exercise DVDs.  I’ve been trying to get more creative by doing the retro walking that I posted about a couple of weeks ago but I still needed something else to get […]

My scandalous love affair. With a sheep.

Still reading?  Good! No, I haven’t changed the name to Pervert Wednesday.  Let’s talk socks! What……?  Did you really think you’d have stuck around this long if my title was labeled: ‘Socks Are Good’?  To make this potentially boring post more bearable to read, I’m going to distract you periodically with photos of cute little […]

Lessons from a golden

My husband and I have found the joys of senior dog ownership. When we acquired Mandy she had been at a rescue facility for several months. I don’t think she’d ever been on a leash in her life and she had been so neglected it took months to medically prepare her for adoption. Arthritis, blown-out […]
