Read your Labels

I just purchased some Calcium today. I did not have my bottle of Caltrate with me so I just purchased some from Whole Foods. Me being Leary of what I purchase I was not sure if the bottle I bought was good. Well, when I get home to check them out I find I had thrown my bottle of Caltrate in the trash. So, I went on-line to look up the ingredients. Well, I didn't do so bad. I did not realize that in Caltrate there is hydrogenated Soybean oil, Sucrose and get this Sodium Laural Sulfate. The crap stuff that you brush your teeth with and that's in Laundry Detergent. Why on earth is that mess in there. Oh, and don't forget your dyes, good ol FD&C Yellow #6. What ever that is. So, I'm good. Glad I purchased it there and I'd rather have some herbs in there I can read then some colors I don't need.

My Practice for today:
Cleans 10 x 3 @8kg
Swings 10 x 3 @12kg
Good Mornings 10 x 3 @12kg
5 minute of meditation

I know I'm losing weight

So follow me. This is a journey I did not plan on being on. I feel driven to learn about food and how it affects my body. I am glad that there are some doctors who do know what goes in matters in the long term for health. yes, they may be debating about the milk but they are certainly not debating about the vegetables and fruit. That I can buy. That I can hold on to. They are certainly believers of supplements. Not to replace food but because our food is not grown in the proper soil we need supplements. Just get the best ones and you don't need all of them. I can now say, I like losing weight. I hope my breast tissue also shrinks and still looks decent and not like someone from a third world country. I love that they also say, exercise. Doesn't matter what it is.. just move. Enjoy it and don't let excuses take you from it.

Never .. Stop... It's not good

To even drink that last shake at night after 12 AM. I never ever sleep. Here I awake again because I wanted to get that last meal in and end up not sleeping. So what is better, no sleep and get the nutrients or sleep and not get what I need? Either way does not sound good.. so, that means eat earlier or skip that meal if it means less sleep. So, now I'm up and I'll wash dishes, find someone to put a parental control on my QVC Channel. I am addicted to that thing and it's not going to allow me to reach my goal during this holiday season if I have it on. I' not buying anything for any adult. The kids get the goods and that will only be within allowance. (off track, there is this fine, handsome, young brother on this show right now:) lol. Why aren't they where I live.. back on track.. hum... okay... let's go wash some dishes. It's a gorgeous rainy day out and that means stay in the house but, I have to get a few vitamins and eggs so I get to go sloshing in the rain for a minute. Meditation day for sure.

Can I get an AMEN sista

Sista girl done lost smomeat. ya girl. It's going to some other body who doesn't care. It can't stay here nomo. I am at... drum roll please....... 156.3 Standing ovation for myself. Yes, I'm doing very well. Yes, I'm glad I'm doing this, Yes, I'm doing this and I'm going to do more. Now.. work on getting it TIGHT and I will be sanging.. lol I'll take toned. I'll take anything that does not make it so I can still grab it. I want it to pop out of my fingers. anyway, I'm on the journey as you can see and I'm going to keep following the yellow brick road. This journey does take courage, determination, belief in ones self, Perserverance, an obtainable goal, prayers and focus. Even though I've given the 16 pounds away, I still fat, just not as fat. I have to find a way to make it toned and my goal to doing that is Kettlebell consistancy.

PS: For my day off plan which was suppose to be just one meal I had an Italian Sub. It was hard to choose. Once I had waited for my Sunday to arrive for my meal off. It was good but the Goldfish did me in. Those I found very hard to put in my mouth. The sandwich wasn't as bad. But the hydrogenated stuff. LESSON: Bring other food for after out of plan meal. :)

I have a lot to focus on now. I feel that it must be time to really focus on my eating and my health and what makes me happy. I am doing a lot of reading as of late. It's interesting. Finding that it's up to ourselves to do what's right for our health. We have to research it all and then decide what's best for us. I just came across another article in Experience Life called Ultrametabolism. Well, from reading his other work it is the same as my nurse practitioner told me years ago and I did not adhere to. Now, it's practically screaming at me. Stay away from the middle aisles. I also hear it saying it could have affected my onset of high blood pressure. I didn't even cook like Southern people so I don't know how it really decided. I believe it was a combination of working at the hospital in the ER and the eat what I want mentality. So now, I have to change. I'm doing it. I'm doing and not on a doctors recommendation because they are just waiting for ya. Work is a bit of a hassle for me now and I have to get some clear vision on how I want my job to be. I am so distracted by other people and I know they don't give a damn about me or what I feel. We have already been down the humble pie avenue and I ate the whole thing. I'm not doing it again. So God please help me just do what I do best and keep stepping instead of trying to make me eat the pie again.

I was reading what was your inspiration for KB on Lisa Shaffer forum. While I was typing I realized it's me. It's within me. So, even though it was/is 10:15 at night. I dawned my gloves, wrist bands, sneakers and exercise top. Brought down my 25lb kb and went to work. Jade on the couch and I put on my Rocky. That's inspiration to me. This is what I did.
Short but sweet and a night not wasted.
Swings 4 x 10 @25
Swings 2 x 15 @25
Just had to do something and swings you can never get enough of.
See ya later. Queen.

Pissy Mood

Wonder how on earth can you just wake up from a good sleep, a sleep I had nothing to do with and be mad?? how does this happen. I went to bed last night I guess, bewildered because Jerry said to call him back. I called him back and he didn't answer the phone. Now that makes me wonder? Why ask someone to call and then not answer? So I went to bed confused. I also had work related same old crap with supervisor who does not supervise. I guess she got issues and doesn't have time to watch her chicken coop. When this happens, I say, I'm staying out of it. her mess and she can come and sweep maybe when the dust bunnies reach her door. By that time they are Jack Rabbits or something else much bigger then a bunny.

It's raw and rainy. I'm suppose to get Jade at 11 AM. I guess I won't be going outside today. Snuggle in and do some exercise. Not my favorite thing to do on a day off but I guess that's what I'm to do. Maybe I can whip up some soap or a lotion. Get my exercise notebook ready for entries.

I just have to say every forum I've been on there seems to be a problem. I should have learned more in DP school. They have boards that have no replies to messages read. No Private messages. No direction on where the home page is. There is one nice board but some women just suck. They just ask questions that I guess they could research their own answers but they feel that someone else knows more or better. The board does grab you in that you want to find out what are they talking about. Some boards have very rare traffic. So it's either feast or famine on what to join. I guess I may wonder,what the heck is a forum for when all the people are just people doing a form of exercise and know one knows it at all. No one knows kbs. They all assume stuff. They don't take a class, they don't ask the instructors, they just buy every single DVD out there an then think they know it all. I know these videos are extremely hard. Then you hear them say they did this for 45 minutes and that for 30 minutes with a 30 pound KB. Well how come the hell your ass is still fat!!!!! I say make a difference and then have something to talk about. My Bitch for the day. Now I need my allergy medicine to work, I'm stuffed up:(

Walk in the Park

Walked in the park 1/2 way around. Great, did my 1 minute jog also. It was a bit chilly but I was ready for the wind.
Ate well and doing great. Lisa's book came the other day but I've not had time to look at it all but that's what's great about books, you can look at it any time. Looking forward to my day of so I get to sit with baby Jade.:)

Baby it's Cold outside

Well, today was great. It was nice to sit back in my loung chair that was Daniells, lol and work on a 10 minute meditation. I put on some massage music and let the thoughts flow and the sun shine on my face. that was good after my kb practice. This is what i did today:
Warm up, joint mobility.
1 Arm Swings 10 x 3 @25
Hot Potatoe 20 x 3 @8kg
Sling Shot 20 x 2 @25 (which I just found out today, I was not doing correctly)
Dead Lift 10 x 3 @25
2 Arm Swings 10 x 3 @ 25
Seated Twist 10 x 3 @ 8kg (working my way up to being able to do this with legs off the ground)
1 arm lift press on floor 5/5 x 3 @8kg(I don't know what the name of this is but i was on my back and i just pressed one arm up to the ceiling like a chest press at a time using the 25)

I purchased some exercise gloves to help, I hope with callouses. Don't want to have old hard hands.

Sept 23, evening post

Yuck. weighed in tonight at 159.3.Not great not good but not over. I kinda didnt' feel like I had lost anything this week also. Strange. Next week I'm sure it will be different:) for the better.. Work went well. I went there with a good attitude and left feeling good. It worked. I planned on having a good night and it happened. Tomorrow, I get to swing again..

Moved again

Yup, I walked the whole park today. I even JOGGED for a minute. Can you believe that? Well, now I'm going to add jogging for 1 minute interval each day I walk. Ya, I'll just do one, one minute until I get that built up. It was pretty cool. Felt like I was Rocky.. lol.. food is fuel and I won't be fat again.

Monday, September 22, 2008

At home

There is always something to do at home. I would just love for everything to be done and i can sit back and go ahhhhh.. Well, since that only happens once a year for me, I'm going to try again and make it happen, at least twice.
Had to do laundry, go to post office, cook veggies, surf net, clean bathroom, and my goodness, just turned to see the plastic barbie dolls on Bally. eeekkkk. All full of plastic and fluff. Lol

Any way, I did work out today. It's okay with me, it all worked.
1 arm swings 10@25 x 3
Swings 10@25 x 3
1 arm Row 10@25 x 3
Sling Shot 10@25 x 3
Windmill 5@8kg X 3
40 Sec rests inbetween. that is inbetween each 10 not the whole thing and then rest. are you nuts!!!

Nice lemongrass scent, good music, comfy shoes and I was good to go.

Eating, went or is going well today. When I'm home, I have no choice to eat well. That is if I don't buy any not so good stuff.

Hope to meet up with Nia in October. That will be a treat.

Nice Sunday

yes, today is a great Sunday. I love it because it's my day to eat what I want and not feel guilty.
I'm not going to feel to bad as I've read so many sites on eating that no one does the whole program completely as it's written. They have their days where they do take a bite of desert and just go on. So, for me, ya you probably say that's all she needed to read, lol but ya, I had a Snickers bar today and for dinner I had Rotisserey Chicken and Broccoli and Coleslaw. Probably still not good but it was to me.

I read on the zone site that we grow into exercise. No one starts out being able to do an hour of an exercise. I'm not going to burn myself up any more because I can't do one either. they are meant to be challenging. I like how Lisa Shaffer does give you a few to do and then you get to choose if you do 2,3 or 4 sets. It will still, work your but. I'm happy with my kb's and I'll just swing to do my best when I do it.

Day off today. It's Sunday fun day.

Saturday, September 20, 2008


All I do is read, I read this web site, that book, this article. Read. So many differences of opinion. We all walk upright on two legs and as we all walk that's how many books on diet and eating and cooking. It's as big an industry as fitness. Crazy big. I'm so sick of all the different opinions. Really. How on earth can they all be right? I do know restrictive does not work. A lot of people go crazy, just sick of counting, blocking, measuring, preparing, searching for best price, thinking how you can't eat this with that.. it's just sickening. I say do it all, one day at a time.

I walked a little today. Just half of the park. I wanted to go to the store and get shoes for Church. Found a nice top to wear so I can be warm but not have to put a coat on. Looking forward to Church, that's for sure. I won't say anything else as I still need help on eating and it's a mighty powerful drug that we all consume.

Friday, September 19, 2008


Did it. Feel good, not great but pretty good. This is what I did. Made it up as I went along.

Swings x 10 @25 x 2
1 Arm Swings x 10 @18 x 2
Turkish Getup 2 @18

40 sec rest periods

Doesn't look like much does it? lol it's better then nothing and I persevered doing it in my SUN Room.

Used lemongrass mister.


Today I wanted this book by Lisa Shaffer. This is not the first day I wanted this book. Two people on the kettlebell forums suggested I get this book. Now I was thinking what good is a book going to do me? Well, with their suggestions and looking over the pictures and the explainations of the moves I really thought I should have this book to help me achieve the practice I want.

So, today, I ordered the book, not having the money in my bank account. I still charged the book and said, I need 18 dollars more because I had sold Pavel's From Russia With Tough Love book. That book brought me no interest. No pointers, I never finished it so I sold it to get money for this next book.

I just finish exercising and then I went and got the mail. Well, what was in the mailbox but money from my sister for my birthday of $125.!!!!! I got tears in my eyes because I did not know she would send so much and on top of it, I got the money to pay for the book I asked for.!!!!

So, what i did now was write that Check from the Universe and stuck it on my bulletin board. Bring on the Gratitude Universe. I am ready....

This is from The Secret.

Kettlebell day.

Well, I will have to get off my duff in 15 minutes and practice kettlebelling. Yea....

The Road to Success is not straight.

There is a curve called failure,
A loop called Confusion,
Speed tunnels called Friends,
Red lights called Enemies,
Caution lights called Family,
You will have flats called Jobs!!!!

But.. If you have a spare called DETERMINATION
An Engine called PERSEVERANCE
Insurance called FAITH
A driver called JESUS

This is what I wish for today.

Walk day

Again, I think I write this more than I write kb day. I love to walk, I do it so often and don't mind a bit. Later on today, Thursday is kb time. Lord has to help me get through it. I seem to fail on doing a complete workout. Today will be the day I do something that allows me to get winded but not bad enough to make me stop. I'm taking my rest periods as Mike Mahler said. That will work for me. He gives a lot way in his seminars. It was good to see his beginning ones were under $500. Unlike Anthony's asking for $1800. Man I'd rather go to Hawaii for that money or spend 2 weeks in Jamaica.
I got my book sold just as sure as I put it on Amazon. I sold From Russia With Tough Love. Now I'm halfway to getting Lisa Shaffer's book which will have better explanations in it for me. She at least also answers on her forum. I like that.

How is it going to be?

Weigh in 160.4 last night 10 PM. Grrrrrrr.
Carpet soaking wet in basement. Now I have to pay people to take it up. My own son even wants to get paid. I think there is something wrong with children now a days. I would never charged my mother for anything no matter what it was that I did. It's your mother.!!!! Bay State gas does not do anything about damages either. She just told me they don't even tell you when it's time to change the tank. They don't check it unless something is wrong. Well now, it's wrong.. it's broke. !!!!

This day really blows. Deb Chepelle called to say she wants me to talk with the lead charge person,and I really don't see the need. I won't even put her name in my blog.

Waiting for Corey and Bully to come and rip up the carpet. Jerry didn't call back. Ray went to work say's it would have to wait until after work on Thursday.

Two other guys want $200.. There is a lot to move and I just might do it. I just need it done and start to get dry and move on. I can't even get my workout in waiting for this to get done.

I could only do 5 windmills with the 25lb kb
I did Swings x 10 @25
1 arm rows x 10 @25
Front Squats x 8 @18
1 arm swings x 10 @18

Not much but better then nothing.

Hair cut and Dye day. Love the closer cut.

The Family That Prays

I went to see this movie last night after the flood in the basement. I really liked it.It was well done. Great actors and actresses. I didn't get to exercise as I would but I get exercise hauling those water soaked carpets out to the dumpster. I went for a walk today. Couldn't wait to do that. I swear,I know I'm hooked on walking. Wish it produced results like resistance training though. Any how, it's Tuesday and I go to work today. Keep your chin up Cheryl. ... Just keep your chin up. you will lose the weight.. I say this because I have to be put in the food den again and then isolate myself for the rest of the time.

Hot Water Burst

Well, You never ever ever know what will happen in a day. You really can't plan. I know and hear how people plan their days, but I tell you, your plan may not be Natures' plan. Today, this morning, my hot water tank burst!!!!! No warning. No clue, no nothing. Just BUMP. Like something hit the house, then, Ray was here changing the water filter at the time, we looked around, we saw nothing. Then he goes down stairs to check around and you know what he found???? 4 inches of water in the basement faster then I'm typing these words. Soaked carpet, soaked comic books, soaked stuff. I guess I got my workout from removing all of that mess. Then he bought a Shop Vac. Well, the carpet is still wet and it will all have to come up. :( Very sad on this account.

Good Sunday Morning

Another day to go to work and do nothing. Don't mind doing nothing but I curerently don't have any really intersting books to read. I have Like The Sugar but it's not really pulling me in yet. That's why I'm always surfing the net for information on Kettlebells. how do it, when to do it.. I have a specific goal to reach and I feel that what I'm doing might not get me there because, I don't know about these things. I guess KB practice fixes the whole body and maybe I should look at it like, this is so much better then free weights that it doesn't really matter what I do because my whole body is going to get fixed. Now that would be great to hear. That no matter what I do, it's all good. Can't spot reduce, don't have to worry about working biceps next to triceps and all the other stuff you do when you free weight train. I really do have to find something else that gets me going in my life. I'm kinda board with getting up, eating, exercise, get food ready for work, go to work, listen to people complain, do my job, eat, and come home, read the net, and go to sleep. Hum... what can I do so I won't be thinking so much about eating. I think more about that then any thing else, I think... gotta go.. the timer is beeping for me for.... guess what.....????? eggs:)

Yea, I made soap today. That makes me feel good.I love making soap. Wish I could find a sent to smell like a deep fruit. I can't think of the name now but not tutti fruity. That makes me sick. Too fruity.
I made Arctic Raspberry with Mango Kiwi. The raspberry is the strongest scent but the I didn't have a lot so, I sill think it will mellow down to a nice blend.

More Light

Well, I had a very good night at work ... except... I talked to a doctor. .. Now .. she left me feeling very unhappy about my eating plan. she said restrictive diets, don't work. She said she will go out and have a drink or two of wine and a piece of bread and a bite of desert. She looks great. She's the infectious disease doc at the hospital and it works. I've seen this lady go from plump to pancake and she did it a good way. She joined Weight Watchers. She got me to thinking, I've heard so much about how people do lose weight on this that at least my light is on about it. They do get to eat. They do get to eat pasta. I want to get this without being deprived. It is very subnormal to not eat as many things that I don't. I can't see why you can't find the foods you like and just replace them with a high fiber one and do it in 1/2 cup size or something. I know I'll get the I'm not the nutritionist .. so what can I do? Stay eating meat and vegetables the rest of my life and keep walking away from social events.???? It's not fun, it isolates me and I don't like it. I also don't like my breast shrinking to who knows what. I had nice perky girls and now they are hanging their heads in disgust. When I was younger they did not hang like water balloons. Now I have to think about getting a breast fixing up here or else, how is this mess going to look hot? How can I feel. hot with sagging flesh?

Off to go for my walk in this gloomy weather. Maybe I'll hear a good word. I'll be listening for it.

Went for a walk today. It was really good. I love walking. I swear if walking could get me in the shape I want, I walk all over..

Friday, September 12, 2008

Great Morning

I did Iron Core, the first part. Very good. Squats are not as they do but I go as far as I can and still move.
Breakfast was pretty good. Yup, I had an Ezekial Bread English Muffin and it's 100X better then the bread. At least it's moist.. but.. I found out why the bread was so awful. I was taking it from the freezer to the toaster. Not suppose to do that. Also, don't heat the Flax. I didn't but I'm writing it so I remember.. Don't heat the flax. My bucket o protein came today. Have to hide it so friends don't ask for me for that to.

GOAL to keep positive thoughts all day long. Yes, all-day-long. If a negative thought comes to my thoughts I am to switch it to a positive IMMEDIATELY. As Bonnie told me, I'M IN IT ... TO WIN IT.....

Thursday, September 11, 2008


Walk today. Not as far as I'd like because Myra was with me. I thought walking with people was good, well, it's not good for me. I don't like to talk and I don't like to be slowed down. I see now, I really enjoy my privacy in walking.

Tried to order Voices but I don't know if it went through. There were too many choices in the phone call.

Canceled Netflix. Look forward to a good stretch this evening. Had to go where I did not want to with my protein drink but I sure have to make this pay off. That is in terms of losing the next .... 10..... pounds.....

GOAL... exercise like I have. Eat like I have....Get to a 10 pound weight loss by October 13.. Then Celebrate!!!!!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Oh Yea. !!!

I'm shrinking again. Today I weighed in at 159.9. Now check that out. I was closing my eyes when I go ton that scale hoping it was under 161. I made it. I'm glad. I still feel fat, big but maybe when I lose the next 10 I'll really feel trim. I'm pretty okay with this though. When I thought I was doing it alone, it didn't happen. Now I'm so critical of everyone else eating yogurt and Cheetos and carrying Coke. I read some mind opening info today that Coke has 9-10 teaspoon of sugar in it. Now how the heck can you not give that up once you see something like that???? I don't even l don't even drink Coke. But dang. I did have one, once in a while but not every week. I was never a Coke drinker any how. Now that I see, it makes me sick they even make something like this. I made it through a work day again with my reading, The Sugar Shock. Great so far. Now that I even hear people say they at a granola bar or something similar is LOADED... did you hear me... LOADED with sugar. Read the labels... I'm not way perfect,.. I'm learning. I did do some Goddess again today. I really like the exercise with the 2 kettlebells but I don't have two the same size. Jerry did give me money for vitamins that I asked for but I'm using this on this investment. I know once I get all the needed equipment it will be less expensive to do. Just coming into kettlebells, ha. .. Man.. that's all I'm going to say. For me now, it's okay. I've come to what really makes me happy and it's something I can do and it's not boring and it's really good. I like it. I will have another walk day on Thursday. Looking forward to burning some sole. See ya.

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Walk Day

Love my walk days. Never ever complain about a walk day. I love love the GymBoss for allowing me to put some pep in my step. Myra went with me and it was good. She got sore legs and loved it.

Hard weekend

But it's over. Going through fire is not fun. Not fun at all. You burn and smoke and then there is nothing left but ashes. This weekend was my week to make it through a whole week of *clean8 eating. Well, I didn't make it and I'm not going to try to do it again. I think thinking about it made it not happen. So... nuff said. I had a piece of pita bread with my salad on Friday. Yes, I could have thrown it out. Yes, I could have given it away, but no. I ate it and liked it. I have no excuse. I'm just who I am and I did what I did. I know for sure, I"m doing a lot more then anyone I know, except maybe one person. So, i'm not going to beat myself up about it. I have other goals I have to make and those are just as important as me trying to eat healthy. I ate Chinese food today also. yup. I ate it!!! Do I feel bad. NO. Do I feel like I failed myself. NO!!! I know it was a meal and it's over. I'm done trying to be perfect and I was not ever perfect in anything I've done. I get B's but not A's. I feel like I'm being graded. In my class though, I still passed my course and I'm no less a massage therapist then the person that got the A's. Tonight, I will eat my regular meal, veggies and protein and Digestive Enzymes and be happy that I did not take a whole day in fire. Peace. One-Day-At-A-Time.

WORKOUT - Did Goddess Upper Body and it was good. I had to use a dumbbell for some exercises that she used two. Otherwise, I kinda like this one. I will do it again on my next KB practice day.

What the

Something Within

I don't know what it is that is drawing different I CAN messages to me. Mary told me about the book, movie, THE SECRET and today, I just finished viewing the video, CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD. It left me feeling teary,, that there is something for me to do that no one else can do but I don't know what it is. I ask the universe to show me, tell me, what is it that I can do? This may be strange to who ever is reading this but.. there is something this woman has to do before I leave this earth. I pray I live to do it and to tell about it when it happens.

Training, is so demanding on the body. I did some of ADs video. She makes it seem as easy as blowing bubbles. But.. you try doing it and you are you challenged like climbing a mountain. It feels so far beyond me that I can only imagine. I want to get to the top of this. How do I press on and reach goal of being able to get to the finish line. I have to remember, the DVD is meant to be challenging. It's okay that I don't do it all. I've been doing this since August 8, 2008 and today is September 6, 2008.. It's the beginning of the journey and I'll remember to go step by step. One day-at-a-time. By the Grace of God, I will do more on Sunday.

The Pinnacle

Did this workout today. Very good. I didn't get the figure 8 to hold but, that's something to practice. Made stuffed peppers today and some beef stew. Sweating through it all.

Bonnie says I can get to 140 by Christmas. That's a tall order for me. But I'll put that number in my head and see if I can't get this body to follow. I'm still enjoying Thanksgiving, work or at home.

New You're Happening

It's happening. Don't know how or where but, it's moving. I weight 163.2. Wait... that needs to be bold. Let me bold it. I don't want to have to go searching for that accomplishment. That's a WOW moment. Not expected. Didn't want to do it because really, I feel like I have the same fat, just smaller. Don't know how that's possible but... it's still flubby around the middle. I do feel good for one month down, or it will be one month Sept 5. Later on today is another walk day. Now I am going to kick it around that park again with the Gymboss and my iPod. The last time I did not have music and I met Jade in the park. Today, I hope it's gorgeous. I have to start looking for warm-up suits so I can continue to walk even in the brisk of the Fall.

Only If God Says Yes..

I have to put this in my heart a lot more. Corey had an awful scare on Saturday morning. I don't know what this incident means for his life but I will pray to find the way for him and his family. Thank God, for taking care of my son in a very cruel world.

I won Goddess from eBay yesterday. Did not expect that. Was having a good chat with Nia about working out and what how each instructor is. Well, again, this has to be part of what I'm looking for in terms of being good at KBing. I"m glad she's in my life,... this is not.... by... chance...

I did what I said for exercise today:
10 2 arm swings
10 1 arm swings
10 high pulls
all x 3

not bad.. felt like I could do more but i think what I should do or can do is shorten my rest period. I took 1 minute but for what I did that was too long. Next time do it with 30 seconds.

Glorious Day

It is such a glorious, beautiful morning, I have to go out and walk. Here in New England you don't get to many nice gorgeous days to walk. I'm going eek some walking in and then come home and do KB exercise. I am not looking forward to cold walks but I best get ready to walk by walking more. I'm sure it will do some good...

Energy: I feel that I have more energy in the morning then when the day wheres on. It's now 5:40 and I don't have energy to KB. I walked 1/2 the park today with the Gymboss set for 5/1 and it made me sweat. Those bursts of fast walking were working. I'm not doing any KB work today. But it did give me a practice to do on Tuesday. I'll do
1: 10 two arm swings
2: 10 one arm swings
3: 10 high pulls 3 x.
That's the goal for Tuesday. Lets see if I can make it happen
