Come on girl, you know you can do it!

Despite my weigh ins, tracking, blogs, and exercise attempts, I'm still bobbing around like a cork on the ocean. Some days I've lost weight, some days my weight is up. I haven't made the progress I had hoped, and that may be due to the lack of my buy-in to the task at hand.

I'm reading a lot about cognitive therapy, affirming my commitment 2 times daily, logging nutrition, and setting fitness goals that are challenging but that I KNOW I can achieve.

I love the community of Spark People. Together we can accomplish so much more than we can as individuals. I have been a member for quite a while, and I am thankful for the relationships with people who are real life inspirations to me - DAILY!

So, I'm going to keep it simple - stay focused, eat healthy, forgive myself for screwing up and for making myself feel like a failure...and I will persist. This is not a sprint, but a marathon. By December (2012) I hope I will have restored my credibility and my normal sized waistline.

Run a half marathon in March 2013.

Lose some of this FLUBBER so I can be slim and fast(er) anyway!

Faster, not Fatter!!


.....dare I shoot for a full marathon by age 60???

My Program:
My past 3 years have been a series of achievements and starting over. Multiple operations to "fix" one from 2008 were not serious but stopped my activity for months. I want to run a half marathon in the Spring of 2013, so that means that I have to start NOW building muscle and working on functional movement.

Hi Ellen! How is your week going? Hope you are having safe travels. I hope your daughter is feeling good right now. I am feeling MUCH better. I had my 2nd treatment this week....and it didn't go so good. Last week's treatment was great. This week, it really aggravated the IC and I have been hurting ever since. BUT.....not as bad and the other symptoms have eased as well. A little relief is welcome. ALOT of relief is the goal. Working on it...
We need to catch up! How is your foot feeling?
Talk soon!

Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with blessings!
