Saw "Mrs Henderson Presents" this week. I love anything with Dame Judy in it, I think. This morning I didn't awake until the local church bells rang at 8 a.m. One thing I will NOT miss about my departed, beloved doggie is her habit in the past couple of years (since she became sick) of waking me up every few hours. So I gulped a glass of OJ and hit the gym for my first class of the week. 3/4 mile walk. Beautiful weather. Great people, great workout. Made me feel like a new person.

I did 1 1/2 hours in the water class today. It felt wonderful. Our pool water is almost warm enough - should be ok later this week.

I had a rest day today, my first in ages. I should be trying to get in one or two rest days a week. It seems so funny now -- when I started this 18 months ago I was struggling to get off my butt, now I'm struggling to sit on it!!! I fell victim to over training a few months ago, so I need to get a balance.

Off to the gym in the morning for an hour of tough cardio!

Today was an off-day, which means no weights. 60 minutes of cardio; 40 minutes on the recumbant bicycle and 20 minutes on the elliptical trainer. Unfortunately, the movie choices were horrible, two chick flicks (Pride & Predjudice and Notting Hill) and Harry Pothead, so I ended up watching the last half hour of one ER rerun and the beginning half hour of another.

I do weights two or three times a week, formal cardio five days a week, and then try and rest the other days, but end up doing yoga or swimming or something on those days.

So today is a cardio day. It's 6.10 am, I'll go and get the bus, then leave the gym at 8.15, get a tram and then another and go to work!

And you guys wonder why you never see me anymore??? LOL

Did all my toning exercises this morning. I'm going to go for my 2 mile walk in an hour or so.

I was a bad girl and didn't do any exercising this winter but I'm back on track now. I was shocked when I went to the doctor a little over a month ago to discover that I'd gained weight. I guess I knew it because my clothes weren't fitting me as well but until its in your face then you tend to ignore it. Well I decided then and there that I was losing the extra weight. I went back exactly a month later and was 5 pounds lighter....that was last week. My goal is to lose a total of 14 pounds so I've probably got 6 or 7 to go.

I've been watching what I eat and drinking lots and lots of water. I've cut out pop completely. I only drink alcohol occasionally and thats not very often. My breakfast and lunches consist of Special K cereal with berries & skim milk or Tuna Salad and Cottage Cheese w/ Fruit. Snacks are fruit. For supper I try to eat light and cut back on my portions. And like I said I drink tons of water now. My skin turgor was horrible before because of my lack of drinking it but now my skin springs back. Honestly, I feel soooooo much better.

I'm going to read through this message board and get ideas for healthy lunches and dinners for after I get all the weight off that I want to maintain it. I can only eat tuna for so long.....
