My first "Run The Gates"

Sunday, June 07, 2009

Hello everyone,

I competed in a thing called "Run the gates". It is a five mile course with a bunch of hills set up in two sections of a town called Levittown in Pa. (Snowball gate and Forsythia Gate). It benefits four agencies that provide service to adults and children with disabilities. (4 for the future) I did a Wog (walk Jog walk).

It took me 1 hour and 33 minutes to do it. I think it took so long to do the five miles, because someone put a bunch of hills in the way LOL LOL.



About 4 1/2 miles into it I was all alone on the course and I started thinking OMG what have I gotten myself into. I rounded the final curve and I could hear the music playing from the finish line, then I saw one of the helpers out on the road and he said "you can do it", you're almost there.

As I was doing the Wog there were people sitting out on their lawns giving out water, spraying the runners with water or just cheering you on.

I am looking forward in doing it again next year, hopefully I can do it faster and have the company of my sister Dottie. Dottie was kind enough to stay with one of the young ladies and walk with her while I pushed myself to finish the course.

Until my next adventure

Weigh in Day! ! !

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Hello everyone,
Today was weigh in day and I lost 1.5 lbs. I am surprised due to all the little indulgents I did over the holiday weekend, I did manage to stay in my calorie range except for one day I went over about a 100 calories.

Today back on track with my work outs. I am going to the gym today and doing some of my missed weight training, and of course the ETD. When the weather gets nice I will be back out riding my bike or walking in the park.

On another surprising note I took clothes out of my closet and NONE of them fit. They are all too BIG ... Too BIG not too tight anymore WOOHOO.. So you know what that means I have to go shopping and I hate shopping.

Until the next weigh in

Wish me luck.

1.5 more pounds - GONE FOR GOOD!

Isn't it great fun to try on clothes and have them not fit because THEY'RE TOO BIG! Gotta love that!!!

Keep up the great work, Meliss!

Love,

What a Day ! !

Sunday, May 17, 2009

My spark sisters and I took on a challange this wekend to hike at a place called Bushkill Falls. It is a beautiful place that they call the Niagara of Pa.

Well sister Dottie said lets take the "The Red Trail". So we did. As we started down the "First set of stairs" I just stood ther and said OH MY GOD. To make a long story short many years a go I fractured my ankle, and I didn't feel like my ankle was strong enough to complete the trail.

Well you know what I did, I completed the Hike, the pedometer said over 3.5 miles and we did over 1267 steps. My ankle was fine it started hurting arount the last 30 steps.

It was well worth seeing how much stronger I have gotten throughout my journey and I am glad to have my spark girls with me.

Here are a few pictures......

This is me at the Brides Maids Falls


This is one of many sets of stairs we had to climb


This is spark sister Kathy and I in a tree


This is my crazy Sister this is why I love her


Me on the side of a Moutain


Until the next Challange.....

Spark on !!!

    Looks like a beautiful spot! Glad you made the hike! You must be so proud of yourself! Isn't it more enjoyable when we have a pretty place to walk? We did a similar thing this weekend and saw 2 deer about 20 ft away (see my blog for more info). Makes my heart leap when I think of the day of memories we created and never would have if not for trying to get healthy! YAH!

The scale has moved..

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Well I have not done any weight training and I'm dying here but guess what the scale moved.
The scale moved 3.8 lbs. So I am going to hold off on the weight training just a tad longer and see what happens.

Changed up my cardio, eating enough calories and drinking my water.

Wish me luck for the next weigh in!!!

Spark on

Melissa
