Completed the Pre today with my personal best time! Just me and about 1000 close friends. Next year? Who knows maybe I'll set a new personal record.

Only 5 days to go

Monday, September 15, 2014

In five days I will be doing the 10K Prefontaine run here in Coos Bay. I've worked hard and I know I will finish. I just hope to beat the 1 hour 49 minutes I achieved before at the Butterfly 10K. The big difference is the Pre has a lot of steep hills including "Heartbreak Hill" which is in the middle of the course.

My stats this week were disappointing but not surprising.
Average calories were over 1400 per day and average steps 9000. I need to pick it up if I want to lose weight. Stayed the same as last week at 177.6.

Going to do a photography talk this morning with a local woman's group. I haven't done anything like this since I left work in December so I am looking forward to it but a little nervous as well.

Have a great week everyone! emoticon From Oregon

Over the top happy

Monday, September 08, 2014

Well yes, I am so glad I have a place like SparkPeople to go and post my wins and losses. I am down another 1/2 pound which is a win for me. I have been walking a lot and also doing some much needed gardening. My calorie intake is OK but could be more consistent.

Stats for this week are:
Steps: Average 9720
Calories: Average 1440

I am ready to move my steps up to 10,000 a day. My calories are pretty much what they need to be to keep me losing weight but not getting into problems with my diabetes.

Thanks again for all of your support!

Great week!

Monday, September 01, 2014

Oh boy was this week good. I realize in order to lose weight I have to do 2 things. Exercise and watch my calorie intake. I averaged about 8005 steps, 3.04 miles and 1379 (give or take a few) and the result? I lost one more pound. Now this is after eating cake last night. My diabetes is under control and I have now reduced my meds by half! Good news. Maybe by December I'll be off the meds altogether. Anyway, thanks for your continuing support.

Hugs to all!

    I am trying to focus on baby steps and not worry about the long term goals.

Thankful for lost key!

Monday, August 25, 2014

I met my goals this week; avg 9597 steps per week, avg 1501 calories per week, total 26.5 miles walking. The end result is I lost another pound!

I read that we should be thankful when things don't go right and I decided to try it. It is easy to be thankful for friends, family, and home but Saturday we lost the last key to our Xterra. Hmmm thankful? Well, yes indeedy. You see there was a time this would have been a crushing financial burden but now it is an inconvenience. I'm not happy about it but I am thankful that I know longer have to worry that something like a lost key would mean no food for my family or being late on my bills. I am truly blessed.

    Grateful or not, it will be nice when the key decides to return to you.
