Savoring the Moments

Monday, April 22, 2013

We truly did have a great time at Epcot on Saturday. Here's pictures of the grandkids having fun in Imagination, playing music by jumping on light squares:







Those are the times to remember and savor! I have a lot of mundane tasks and housekeeping chores to do today, but just remembering these special times keeps a smile on my face! I also recommit again to eating as healthy as I can which includes a 100% tracking!!

    Your grands are precious. It sure is nice to watch them having fun, especially on something they don't normally see/use.

    It truly is the Magic Kingdom for kids!! I was eternally grateful Mom sacrificed extra to make the one day we spent there special. It was a very long road trip and she made sure we saw as much as possible along the way -it was the highlight of my childhood growing up. We saw lots, from the red wood forest to the grand canyon. She was a single parent working 3 jobs to raise us, don't know how she did it.

Disney World Fun

Sunday, April 21, 2013

We had lots of fun at Disney World yesterday! Here's some evidence of recent good times:





I carried around a lot of healthy food and water yesterday all day, and still ended up going significantly over my calorie range by bedtime. Oh, well. I don't have to be perfect!

I missed my Saturday long run, so got up this morning and ran 8.66 miles. Felt good. I love the group long runs, but on the other hand, getting to set exactly the pace I want is a treat, too!

Have a great day, healthy and happy, everyone!!

Refusing to Feel Old Today

Thursday, April 18, 2013

When my daughter told me she found 5 grey hairs, it was like I went into denial. I've been grey for quite some time and quit coloring 8 years ago. I've accepted that I'm a grey-headed older woman. I love being a grandmother; I don't mind looking like one. But my little girl? How could she have grey hairs?? This just cannot be. Oh, I know. I was 32 years old when I had my one and only child so I could easily have a child 10 years older. I definitely am old enough to have a grey-headed kid. So why do I feel like I'm in shock?

And then there was the great event yesterday. It is with great joy that I tell you my husband became a great grandfather yesterday. His married 19 year old granddaughter gave birth to a beautiful little boy, Rylan. Why don't I feel as much joy telling you that I am now a step great grandmother? Cannot be. But let me let you ooo and awe and coo:

He is just darling. We'll be going to Tennessee to meet him the first of July.

One of my SparkFriends wrote recently (you know who you are ONEKIDSMOM) that I'm not getting older, I'm getting faster. Truth of the matter is that I am getting older, but I am getting faster, too. Today's challenging workout was half mile repeats at 7.1 mph/8.5 minutes per mile. Coach told me to do 4 to 6 of them depending how I felt. I did all 6!! I look at some of my running buddies who are my age. Running doesn't stop aging, but it does add life to the years!!

So this old lady, with a greying daughter, and a new great grandchild, is delighted to be living life fully and fit! We can't outrun the years, but we can just keep running with a smile ear to ear!!

    Wow! What a sweetie! Congratulations on the great grandkid!!
You look fabulous to me! I am so glad you don't color your hair. You have earned every one of those grey hairs and wear them proudly! I had my first grey hair at age 24. Its not so noticible on me because of the multitude of colors that makes up my red from very light strawberry blonde to the darker ones, but it is considerably lighter then it used to be -think carrot top :P I won't mind going all white because it will finally allow me to wear all colors instead of avoiding the clashing ones.
Keep on being the fantastic fit running Queen that you are! Bet very few grandkids can say they have a granny that can run a marathon!!

I'm quite bummed about this Achilles Heel pain I've been having. I was really running fast for awhile, then this happened and now I'm lucky to run a 9.5 minute mile. Most day it's more like a 10.5-11 minute mile. But I keep moving.

Freedom

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Good bike ride this morning. I don't know my exact mileage as I turned around to join some friends for part of the ride. It was at least 16 miles; probably 19. We've been having 90 degree weather, but this morning it was just right for a ride. I was hardly even sweaty when I got home.

Yesterday I weighed 126.2 and this morning it was 125.4, giving me a .6 cushion below my "happy weight" of 126. It feels really great to be truly trying to maintain now! About 51 of my 63 years I've been wanting to lose weight. Even though I plan to eat no differently unless my weight drops below 124, I have a good feeling of freedom to be the me that I am!! Does that make sense??

    Absolutely. Being at the weight you really desire means you have finally figured out how to get it there and keep it focused on staying there. You already know how to maintain successfully. Losing the last little bit of tiny weight you want to is always a struggle, but once you are finally there, you know what to do to keep it there. Do remember it will always fluctuate, its not going to be a straight line graph. As long as it hovers around your happy weight with no noticeable ups or downs, you have done it!
Enjoy!

    You are amazing! I'm in awe! You are truly maintaining, you are living this amazingly active, fit lifestyle, and you model the fact that true transformation is possible! Bravo Marsha!! You are such an inspiration to me. And during those 51 years you became an expert in what to do which is why it's working now!!!

    You deserve every success! You've worked hard and it's nice to know, even at age 63, you've finally got it figured out!!!! Better late than never, right? It's like those 51 years were a dress rehearsal for where you are now. I love your joie de vivre!!

    It does! I'm still working on finding out how much more to eat so I don't KEEP losing. I keep having to add calories, and my brain isn't comfortable with that yet.

I love having that cushion so that a normal bounce in weight doesn't bring on "crisis management mode."
