I'm not going to whine. God knows too many people are far more worthy of doing that right now. I'm not going to make excuses. Nothing is really stopping me from being the best I can be. Nothing, that is, but me.

However, in all truth, I cannot focus on my body right now. My mind and heart are too preoccupied. I know that long walks would help me with my thoughts, but I'll admit that I'm a bit nervous about spending extra time outside in the rainy weather with radiation, fresh from Japan, in the atmosphere.

Now is not about me. Not today, anyway.

Peace out.

Just Do It

Wow. I was all fired up just 11 days ago and what did I do with that? I walked. Yeah, that's something, but hey ... reality check. Bless those little Sketchers, though. The walking is much less painful than it was. I guess that jerky doctor had some good in him.

I haven't been a complete sloth. I've been walking and that's a baby step. Now that I've read my fellow bloggers' updates, I'm inspired to move it up a notch, again. I just love those people. They have the same issues I do, yet they handle them so well. How can an old broad be on this planet for so long and not "get it"? Diana has started over almost as often as I have, yet she just gets back into the groove without looking back. I love her idea about doing a Fitness Ridge week at home. Brilliant. Shelli set goals that were doable, yet found herself going beyond what she really thought she could do. Wow.

Walking week is over. BodyMedia is getting strapped back on ... well, as soon as I get off FaceBook, that is.

I'm Wrong :) Yea!

Thank God for fellow bloggers. So, I thought I was the only one who could pump and sweat for a week at the ridge and lose one whole pound. Shelli showed me I was wrong. REALLY wrong. She had a similar experience and, I dare say, worked a whole lot harder than I did.  I've been sniffling for the 2 months since being home (usually in a seated position) and she has gone to the gym. She has lost a total of 21.5 pounds. And I .... well, didn't.

I'm fired up!
