Happy feet … walking

I decided to take today off and have a four-day weekend. I accomplished a lot today. I had a dentist appointment this morning. Then the car had scheduled maintenance. And I started the daunting task of de-cluttering the spare room/office/dumping room. I took the car in a little after 9. The dealership offers courtesy shuttle […]


If only I were a runner

My intention today was to get up this morning and head to the gym. I woke up about 7:15, which is rather late for me. (The gym didn’t open until 8 a.m. today.)  I still felt tired and went into the spare room and turned on the TV to Lifetime Movie Network. At some point […]


Tap & Track review

I have started reviewing some apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch. My Tap & Track review recently published. Check it out.


Self-taught spin class

Today there were no classes at the gym, which was a bummer. I would have been able to make the noon spin class and gladly taken it. I still went to the gym today. I got on a spin bike, put in my ear buds and set the iPod on shuffle. If a song came […]


Washing your hands regularly keeps you healthy

Since I have had this awful cold (Yup, still have it) … I have been much more aware about how I cough (into the crook of my elbow), how often I wash my hands and even how often I use hand sanitizer at my work desk. Before getting sick I was a frequent hand washer. […]


Weight loss

So since last Tuesday I have been counting my calories. I didn’t talk about it before on this blog because I feel like when I do I do well for like two days and it is down hill from there. But I weighed myself this morning and I lost 2 pounds since last Tuesday. My fingers […]


Design your own spin class

Last month when I was in Phoenix visiting friends Erica and I were talking about spin. Erica loves spin. But her schedule has made it difficult for her to make classes. I believe there is a gym at her work building. I suggested she design her own spin class, which I have done before. I […]


Self-designed spin class

So the gym was open today, but all classes were canceled. I arrived a little after 9 and decided to ride the bike instead of the elliptical. I put in my ear buds, cranked up the music and pretty much designed my own spin class. I climbed a lot of hills, did some endurance, sprints […]


Thanksgiving morning walk

I had to pick up a few things at the grocery today. So I decided to walk. It was a nice, quiet walk. Just listening to my iPhone. The gym is closed today. And I figure when we get home this evening from my dad and Hilda’s I am not gonna feel like working out […]


Counting calories helps with weight loss

I recently bought the Tap & Track app for my iPhone. So for the past week I have been tracking calories I consume and calories I “earn” with exercise. The idea is similar to what I was doing with Weight Watchers. I just decided to try something new. Plus I always have my phone with […]
