Marianne Williamson encourages us to make an altar...here's mine. I LOVE it!
Looking forward to feeling better, being healthier and accepting my gluten/casein/soy free lifestyle. Looking forward.
I don't like roller coasters...never did. Not even as a kid. So why I ride the yo-yo weight loss roller coaster is beyond me. It is time to get off. It is time to stop "rewarding" myself with food. What kind of a reward is that? Certainly not healthy. Certainly NOT in my best interest. What kind of a friend would I be if I rewarded someone with POISON? Yet I do it to myself all the time.
Time to begin practicing self-care. Time to take the healthy dreams/ideas I have and make them DAILY habits. Going to bed at a decent hour, planning meals and having my clothes ready are not lofty, undoable goals. Exercising, taking my vitamins and drinking water are things I need to do for ME! They are healthy habits that need to be engrained and I need to begin NOW. Not tomorrow, not next week...NOW! Care to join me? It'll be Fun!

I'm 52, married (for the 2nd time) and live in NJ. I work as a school administrator in a large, suburban school district. I have been avoiding my goals and dreams and living a little life. I am ready to get back on track physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
Today is going to be a GREAT day!
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Show me Lord, what I need to change. Please prune my dead works.
Thanks for stoping by my blog and your comment.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

I am following a program I got for my Ipod touch, called Run Coach Pro. It gives you a schedule according to when your event is, and you can put in ho many days you want to run. It tailors the schedule to you. I am running 4 days a week. MTW I am running between 45 minutes and an hour, and Saturday is my long run. Each Saturday it goes up 10 minutes. I am at 90 minutes tomorrow. The highest Saturday is 2 hrs and 10 minutes, a few weeks before the event, and then it starts to go back down. Right now I am running about a 12 minute mile on average. I don't foresee it getting any better anytime soon, lol. My plan for the NJ half is just to finish. I don't care about my time. I am running Rock n Roll in Phillie in Sept. and I hope to beat my NJ time then~

Hi, thanks for stopping by, feel free to PM me anytime!
I turn 39 in April and want to do a half before I turn 40, and if all goes well, a marathon the year I turn 40.
I have a training plan I found online that starts in February, but I got an app for my ipod touch that starts next week, easing me in, so I am going to follow that. Right now I am just trying to run 3 or 4 days a week, for 30-60 minutes at a time, just to keep moving. I did a bunch of 5Ks in the fall and my times are ok, kinda, lol, so I am hoping this training goes well!
Keep in touch!
