FabFit October Marathon Challenge-ROCKTOBER !!

Thursday, October 06, 2011

This month my FabFit team is doing a marathon challenge. We are challenged to do 26.2 miles either on foot with walking or running or on the elliptical. Some of us are aiming for 100 miles. Anything over 26.2 can be on a bike also.

As our leader states, to do a marathon seems like a huge goal, but to break it down mile by mile, it is a doable goal to get one done in one month. Just like we lose one pound at a time to get to our ultimate goal. We CAN do this!

I am looking forward to logging 100 miles and am going to try my best to do it all on foot. As of 10-5-11, I have just over 20 miles in!!

I have some awesome spark friends that live in my area and we meet on a regular basis. Wednesday evenings we meet at a local school track and Saturday mornings, we meet at a different school track for walks/runs. This past week, we have met on other days to walk together and get our mileage in.

RUN2MYDREAMS and LEAH57 and my regular partners. They are rocking the miles right along with me and I treasure our friendship and time together. We are a determined group of gals! Occasionally, we have other friends join us and hope to continue to add more to our walking group. Anyone in the area is welcome, whether you are on the FabFit team or not :-)

Here's LEAH57 and I after one of our track walks:


Here's RUN2MYDREAMS and I after a 4 mile walk (no, we didn't buy any of the candy in the pic!):


And here we are as a group:


We are all signing up for various races too, the next one all of us are doing together is the Hot Chocolate 5K in DC on December 3rd, but we have Pumpkin races and Turkey trots and others in between.

We are going to ROCKTOBER! (thanks for that awesome word TIFFYFANNY!)

Visiting Mom and Nanny in rehab

Sunday, September 25, 2011

I drove to Mom's this weekend (Nanfacemire1), to help celebrate her birthday and to visit my Nanny who fell and broke her pelvis last weekend. She's in rehab now.

We went to see her twice each day (fortunately she is only minutes from Moms). Yesterday we had prints made of a lot of pictures and Mom made her a frame with family pictures to hang on her rehab rooms wall. She also made her an album of family pictures to have there to look at. Next time we are going to decorate her room with Halloween things. When she lived alone, she always decorated a lot for each holiday.

This is her rehab center. It was really nice. The rooms are nice, they have a large dining area for people who want to meet and socialize with others, an aviary, areas outside to sit. Every staff member was really nice, which helps too.



Some of the birds in the aviary





Flowers she got:


And here she is eating her dinner last night. I love her smile



Have a great birthday tomorrow, Mom! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    So glad you got to go spend time and celebrate your Mom's birthday with her. Your nanny looks so young, and lovely! It helps us so much to know that our loved ones are well taken care of, and happy wherever they are.

Please support Mom

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Mom (Nanfacemire1) is at the hospital with my Grandma now. Just last week we posted a beautiful picture of our five generations and some of Levi's birth and Brandon's wedding the week before.

Nanny's confusion has been getting worse and today she fell and has apparently broken her hip. She has been admitted and they are waiting for the ortho to come. X-ray was inconclusive, but then CT scan showed a fracture.

Please send some prayers and/or positive thoughts our way and especially to Mom. This has been very hard on her trying her best to do what's right and take care of her Mom.

    I hope by the time you read this that they have figured out the best approach with your grandmother. My dad, who passed away from dementia last week, broke his hip 4 years ago. He had a lot of problems with his dementia and the meds they gave him related to the surgery, but he did actually recover pretty quickly once the meds were out of his system. Had he broken his hip within the past six months or so, I'm not sure we would have treated it since I don't think he had another recovery in him....he was pretty frail. I don't know how thing are with your grandmother, but decisions like that can be tough. My heart goes out to all of you.
