s'funny Charleen - you and I are the same height, but I would not say we should be the same weight. Different bone structure, and so forth. I dislike it when someone says "oh, you're a woman and this is your height, so this is your necessary weight"....NOT! My bones are slender, and I have been 111 lbs (not now, certainly) but I don't think I'll ever get that weight again - I was, at 43, then lost too many jobs and got "down". Guess I'm either an emotional non-eater, or emotional eater. When I get "too" focused on something, I forget to eat. When I have nothing to do (like not having a job) I over-eat......
It's very important to eat when you're trying to lose weight so your body doesn't get the message "she's starving, so we'd better hold onto some of her fat to allow for the too-lean times". That's Literally what your body does. Some people eat like a bird, but don't lose weight just because of this.

Kathy - I agree with you about riding in traffic. It is fun to ride on back country bike trails, but NOT IN TRAFFIC. In an encounter with a car, the bicycle always loses. On weekends there is a bike club out of Raleigh that rides out here. It also scares me to pass them. Some times they stay strung out on the bike lane, but sometimes several will ride side by side (I guess to talk). I am always fussing at my husband to "slow down - they may fall over in front of you!". You folks actually have me thinking about riding again (at least up and down on our dirt road).

There are several Bike Clubs in Calgary, from beginner (10 km ride) to advanced (40-60 km ride) but I'm not ready for that until I'm much more proficient (ie: LEARN how.....). Maybe next year I can join the beginner group. Costs $5 to join the Community Association, then $10 to join the Bike Club associated with it. That way I'd be able to ride with someone.
My neighbour, and my husband, want to go riding with me when I learn. My neighbour grew up learning on a pedal brake, and now she has a bike with hand brakes and she's a little leary of them.
My DH took my bike out for a spin, and if I use the kid's bike we were given, I can ride with him.
Actually, the kid's bike is a good size for me, especially once I learn - I can raise the seat a bit.........

We have bikes but rarely get them out...and when we do it seems like my BUTT (of all things) hurts afterwards Rolling on the floor laughing

I like to walk and like some of the rest of you like to be able to set my own pace. My neighborhood is surrounded by hills regardless of what direction I go, so even if my pace is slow I still get cardio. My goal is to do at least 3 walks a week.

I am going to be burning a few extra calories the next 5 weeks. I am volunteering at a camp for kids to do a stretch and relax class for them once a week. They come to the class on a rotation so I get 24 kids per class and 4 rotations. Almost 100 kids!!! Today was my first day...WOW...that was an experience!

Maridell - of Course your gluts get the exercise! It's good that your backside is hurting, cuz that's ......... usually......... where it's needed most, for us "sitters at the computers" Rolling on the floor laughing
wow - 100 kids?!?! they must really be keeping you Hopping!!!

Calgary is in the foothills, so we have a lot of hills too - our home is 500 ft away from a steep hillside. Of course I should get out of the park we're in and Really climb.......... even biking down the path is steep at places.
Maybe the next time my neighbour & I go walking I should show her the steep side of the park - we usually go the route she takes her dog for a walk earlier in the day. We don't take the dog because that would be meandering, not walking Big Grin

I could go for a walk up and down hills. I live on a hilly curvy road but it is just not safe. so will walk in my area I mowed and I never get out to road. People drives fast down our road.
I finally added my day up and looks pretty fair. I still have a time navigating that Website but I got the meal part down pretty good. they want us to talk over there but I like this better.

Good Morning!! What a great day to be alive!
Started out by having my Cheerios and milk!
Did you know that coffee is good for a healthy diet? (I always use the word Healthy, cuz EVERYONE is on a diet, All the time - good, bad, or indifferent, it's still a diet - and I Really dislike that word..........diet! It's the one "less than positive" thing I'll say on here - Lose The Word DIET! Big Grin )

Good Start to a Wonderful Day!!!

We Can Do This!! Thumbs up Hurray!

yup, yup, yup
I'm "thinking" about getting rid of the sugar I put in........ apparently it's one of the best ways to get rid of the tummy.
It may be one of my only "guilty pleasures" after all, I don't expect to be perfect, but I will exercise more to counter it......
