now with less thigh chafe!
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      11 comments

I just started noticing that my thighs don’t rub together anymore when I’m walking fast! I haven’t lost any weight lately but this is a sign that the extra exercise is doing something good! ... Read more
cyber athletics -- Wii Fit Plus!
Monday, April 05, 2010      7 comments

I got Wii Fit Plus! It's so much better than Wii Fit because it has more games, it estimates how many calories are burned during different games, and you can do sets either set up by the Wii or by me. So much user-control! The points and au... Read more
Glad Påsk, as they say in Sweden!

Happy Easter everybody! The weather has been so nice all weekend here. Broke out my bike for the first time this year yesterday, so off I go on two wheels again. I only had one bite of Easter chocolate, and it was just perfect. I can feel my ... Read more
yoga by candlelight
Monday, March 29, 2010      6 comments

Yoga is my new love! I've been doing it on WiiFit, then I went to a free class by candlelight on Saturday night during Earth Hour. It was lovely, and a much harder workout than doing it on WiiFit. So tomorrow I'm going to a beginner class becaus... Read more

Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy, as John Denver sang! We’ve had several warm, sunny days here in Toronto, it’s so nice! Nice to be more relaxed outside instead of rushing to get back inside. I’m back to my long walks home from wo... Read more
place to myself again
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      2 comments

Woo hoo! I had a houseguest for just over 2 weeks, and she's out today! It was nice to have her, but my place is so small that it cramped my style. She was living on the sofa bed in my living room, so I couldn’t really use Wii Fit or do the str... Read more

Lenten challenges
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      9 comments

Today is the first day of Lent. I’m not an active Catholic anymore, but I still enjoy the challenge of Lent. Giving up something or doing something that is a bit of a sacrifice or challenge. Last year I gave up diet pepsi, and added exercise eve... Read more
Pancake Tuesday
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      6 comments

mmmm pancakes for supper! I like mine with maple syrup and whatever fruit I have around. Tonight I guess it'll be bananas and raisins. Maybe walnuts too, to make sure I get a bit of protein. And they'll be made in wonky heart shapes. It's easie... Read more

Tonight I'm going to a pub to watch the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics with a gaggle of knitters and we're going to cast on our Knitting Olympics projects. The idea is we have to finish our projects before the end of the Vancouver Games, ... Read more
being nice to people who annoy
Thursday, February 11, 2010      10 comments

A couple people in my circle annoy me and I want to be calmer around them. They're nice, caring people, but they ask with too many questions and give negative comments about things that don't really matter. I feel pestered! How do you dea... Read more
Whole Foods
Wednesday, February 10, 2010      11 comments

I love that store! But I need to go in with a plan, or I'll over-spend, and save my spontaneous food shopping for a less fancy grocer. Last night I got some good-lookin' veggies and tempeh burgers. Do you have Whole Foods in your town? Th... Read more
