"Successful people always keep moving. They may make mistakes, but they never quit!"

I live in Washington State - the wrong place because I love Sunshine.

Been married for 29 years to same guy. Our son is a skateboarder in Long Beach, CA. I am a Survivor of Bone Cancer. I love Beer & anything Beach or Tropical. Hoping one day to live in AZ. I am on Sparks every morning to log my day & workouts & catch up with Spark friends.

We all stray from our goals for many reasons, and a biggie is that we get too busy.

YOU are important. YOU need to schedule time to exercise, even if it is only 10 minutes a day.

WW is a great resource. Love the support. Great facetime with others who struggle too. I love the hand-holding, and the gentle reminders, and the time with the scale. Keeps you honest.

Don't be hard on yourself, just be!

Good luck with getting back on track.

Are you getting out a chiWalking? I just ChiRan my second race, and 10K. No big improvement in time, but the recovery is so much easier. I was SSSOOOO proud of my DD, 9 years old. She ran the 5K in 35:12. Summer is in full swing, but we have not been to the pool yet.

Sorry I haven't been Sparking much lately. At least we are FB friends and I get to keep up with all your fun. I started WW again June 1st. Basically, I'm eating low carb and counting points. No big deal. My goal this month is five workouts with Chalene or Shaun T and 26.2 miles a week on the treadmill. So far...so good. Only week one though. I just want to feel super confident in September when we go to Jamaica again. I say this every year, but this year I mean it!

Sorry about your elbow, but glad it wasn't something awful. Take long walks and eat clean. You'll be fine until it heals. emoticon

I hope the blog was worth waiting for. I was posting a "collage" picture to the page to see how it would show up (not too small), then I deleted the blog. It was in a blink of an eye. I did not anticipate everyone getting an email....

Thanks for commenting on my race report. I am starting to get comfortable with races now. They are fun. June 7 with be my first anniversary of my first race! So I am repeating the Rotary Run, only this time I will do the 10K, not the 5K.

You should sign up for a 5k at least 3 months out, then just start training. Last summer I was doing a run-walk-run training program that helped me go from couch to 5k. If you have been walking, you could do this too. I had walked for 2 years prior to running. Now walking is a form of cross training.

Hopefully, I will get to the ChiTeam tomorrow. If not, next week. DS graduates this weekend, so we are busy with family gatherings and celebrations.

Ciao.

Yummo on the s'mores! A little guilt keeps us more honest than not:)

I put in a long recovery run today, only 5 miles, but it was slow and 60 mins. Then I got out into the garden for about 3 hours. I am good and tired for my DH date tonight.

Happy Holidays and remembrance.

Thanks for checking in.
