Deb

I am here to recharge myself again with my running, my healthy eating and just hope to make a few new friends along the way.

I ran a marathon 2 1/2 years ago and it was the most wonderful and life changing thing I have ever done. I didn't finish how I wanted, so I am hoping to change that and possibly this year.

I have much to do and change in my habits to get ready for that. Starting with my daily exercise. And my mantra is "I will not give up".

Hope you've had a good time - sluggishness will pass I'm sure. Look forward to hearing about your adventures. it's a 3-day holiday weekend here - dunno about the US - and unfortunately I'm overly busy but hope to talk soon and catch up.

A quick thank you for your message, Debra. Your support is invaluable in this situation - none of it is easy, of course, especially keeping the grands on an even keel, so kind and positive thoughts mean a lot. Your holiday sounds like it will be wonderful - enjoy every moment! Have my fingers crossed that your health problems won't interfere. BIG emoticon my dear and thanks again.

Thanks for the goodie and kind message, Debra. Sorry to hear about the bad luck on the meds front - SO annoying for you -DO hope you're able to give them up soon. As you say - if we get behind each other we'll get to where we want to be one way or another. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just popping in to say I very much hope you feel better today - all sorts of things going round here in the UK making people feel bad in one way or another - or maybe it's more than a passing bug - DO hope not.
Also want to say thanks for visiting my blog - you're right that I should stick to what gives me pleasure although that challenge was good for a week so I may do a week at a time here and there as a boost - without declaring myself accountable apart from to myself!!
Take care of yourself, Debra and let me know how you're feeling when you can.
Sending healing emoticon
