Graduation in Hawaii - with pics

Monday, May 30, 2011

This is a special place come graduation day. Lots of love, flowers and festivities to go around at a Hawaii graduation. My husband is the headmaster of a college prep school and this is by far my favorite day of the entire school year.


they wear white and go barefoot on graduation day

these two are wonderful young men

By the end of the day, all you can see are their eyes!

My husband the headmaster, and I. This poor guy has had a long year. He's exhausted!

Our annual Craft Fair and "those" pants

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Today was the annual craft fair for my husband's school. Every year, the saturday before Mother's Day, people come from all over the state and even from the mainland to attend this event. We raise a lot of money for financial aid on this day.

Last year I saw some photos that were taken on Craft Fair day and I was horrified at how big I looked. And I looked 10 years older. It was awful. I vowed to be much much smaller this year.

Then on March 15 I wrote a blog about "those" pants that we all have and desire to wear once again. I set a date to be able to get into them by today, May 7. I didn't plan to actually wear them, just be able to pull them up and button them. So this morning I put them on, buttoned them, wore them around the house for awhile to see if they just might be comfortable and decided to wear them - all day! I'm so excited about this I can hardly see straight.


That's Joe and I. I was proud of him today. He's the headmaster of this school and it's amazing to me the job he has there and how well he does it.

Something else about the day, people were coming up to me all day long to compliment my weight loss. That made my heart feel so good I wanted to cry. Everyone was noticing!! That's the motivation I needed to not ever gain this weight back. Maintenance, here I come!

Just feeling a lot of gratitude today

Thursday, April 28, 2011

I'm home from my last day of clinicals for my Nurse Assistant class. We've been working at a nursing facility in town. My heart aches for these people. So many of them had vibrant, fully functional lives until age and illness made them dependent on others for the most basic of care. My empathy for them is intense. Many of them are my mom's age and some of them are even just a few years older than I. It truly made me appreciate my health and renews my resolve to take care of myself to the best of my ability through the years.

But this experience has also made me very grateful for SparkPeople. My weight has fluctuated most of my life. Something about being a part of this community has brought me to a place I've not seen in years. I'm only a couple of pounds from my goal weight. Truth be told, if I never lost another pound I'd be just fine. I feel better than I've felt in years. I'm wearing clothes that I buried in the back of my closet with only a glimmer of hope I'd ever wear them again. And people are noticing. Everyone's noticing! But most important, the "kids" I attend college with are getting inspired! They're snacking on bell peppers and proudly telling me about it! They're asking me for my thoughts on health and nutrition! This makes me think of ways to give back. To spread the Spark.

I decided to buy copies of "The Spark" to have on hand. As I see an opportunity, I'm going to give a copy to anyone who seems really interested in knowing about this community and getting on track to a healthier life.

But mostly, I just want to express my gratitude to SparkPeople, its founder, the wonderful people on staff, and the community as a whole.

    That is so generous of you to want to share what you have learned with others..way to spread the spark. Did you know spark people has business cards too? I ordered a tee shirt once and they mailed me a stack of them, very handy to pass out to future sparkers.

I understand about the patients. I used to work at a skilled nursing facility many years ago as assistant administrator. So sad to see all the lives touched by illness and also the neglect at times by family members to love and support them.

So I presume a new chapter opens now in your nurse training? What is next? I wish you all the best in your endeavor to embark on such a caring journey to help others.

I decided yes on the Maui HM and new running skirt pic

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I had to go to Lahaina today. So, while I was there I checked out the half marathon course. It starts in Kaanapali at Whaler's Village, goes through Lahaina and out to the highway where it turns around at the park and heads back to Whaler's. A nice flat course! It starts at 5:30 in the morning - my usual workout time - so the weather will be nice and cool. The full marathon starts in Kahului and has a pretty hilly route through the Pali before it gets to Lahaina and the finish line.

So now I have 4 plus months to train. I found a training schedule from marathonrookie.com and it looks good. 10 weeks total so I've got plenty of time to do the schedule and make any adjustments as needed. This will be my very first HM!! If all goes well I'll be doing the Shoreline half in Long Beach in October and then the Surf City in Huntington Beach on superbowl sunday in February 2012.

I bought a running skirt but not exactly sure I'm going to like it. This one started creeping up in the legs and caused some chafing. I had a recommendation for a different manufacturer so I'll give that a try before I discount running skirts altogether.

The race is September 18, anyone care to join me??

    I'm doing Long Beach too! Yay!! I know another Sparker who is coming to Maui to do the Half, maybe you could share training tips with each other... her Spark name is Ment2Be, just tell her you got to her page through me... great gal, started her first HM a year ago January and has been racing regularly ever since.

As for running skirts, I love them but have tried so many to find the one with the least "creep factor". Right now it's an old one from SkirtSports... they used to make them with a silicone bead inside the shorts leg that kept them from creeping but they don't have that anymore. The other thing to look for is slightly longer shorts - that seems to help them stay down. I hope you find one you like!

I bought two of Target's running skirts last year, but I put one on last night and realized they are a bit too big - funny because I actually bought a little girls one from Target recently and forgot about it. Hopefully that one fits. It seems you have to get the fit just right on those or you get the riding up.

I'm strongly considering the Maui half marathon

Friday, April 01, 2011

When I set my goals around my 50th birthday, one of them was to do a half marathon sometime during this next year. My first choice is the Surf City Marathon on superbowl sunday next February. I may still be able to do it but if my school schedule is intense I would have to pass. So, I'm thinking of doing the Maui half marathon in september. It's convenient for me, I can actually train on the course (not the safest place to run but I could do it early in the morning), and I can use it as my first HM and then do one on the mainland.

I'm a California girl in my heart. I grew up in Orange County. For me, it's still home. And I still have family and friends there who I go visit often. I wanted to run my first half marathon in California but at the same time I don't want to miss out on fulfilling this goal. So as it stands right now I'm probably going to do the Maui half but I'll keep my eyes open for a half in Southern California that fits in with one of my visits home.

I, too, have the kooky idea to do a HM for my 50th, which is next Feb. Only now I've agreed to meet 2 of my spark buddies for the LV HM this Dec!

I do run on roads fairly frequently, but I still love my treadmill.

    Cool! I think it's a wonderful goal! You can start training for it now and you'll be ready by September. If something else comes along what's to keep you from changing your mind? Or better yet, what's to keep you from doing TWO HM??

You can do anything you want, lady -- so go do it!! WOO HOO!

And thanks for commenting on my status - I was so excited when I realized I had done 18 minutes. I pushed myself to finish the last 2, but I wanted to be able to say I ran 20 minutes! The most EVER! I did have to find some good music though, some of the songs on my MP3 just didn't cut it -- ya gotta have good music to keep going!

Well, almost bedtime for me -- you have a good night and I'll talk to you tomorrow emoticon emoticon
