So. It's really been a while since I posted a blog. But a lot has gone on. I have a few more Sparkfriends and I also have visits and Sparkmails occasionally from people sharing grief stories and grief journeys. It is so wonderful when people reach out and share. It's makes me feel less alone!
So what's been going on?
Well- things with the scale have not been great. Since I started training for and completing serious races, the scale has just been creeping up. And it's NOT all muscle, I know that. But I have some health issues and medications that are partly to blame. And I also like to eat. Sigh! But, I am fitter than I have ever been and know that I will need to keep with this lifestyle forever so who cares how long it takes to get to goal weight, whatever that is. And I have stalled the scales upward creep and making it creep down a little, so, progress, however small!
Meanwhile, after my 2 triathlons, I did a half marathon in April. Finished in just under two and a half hours, which was my goal. Woo-hoo! I have also done a few five milers and lots and lots of swimming and cycling and running. I know I should strength train more. Working on it!
I even got past the first dating experience as a widow. Only took me almost 4 years - LOL! Fun for a while but then got weird. Taking a break from that for now.
Lately I have been completely consumed with planning a Sweet 16 for my oldest that will happen this Saturday night. It's going to be fun and then it's going to be fun that it is done!
After that I get back to serious training as I am doing another half marathon in October.
Life is good!
Thanks to Sparkpeople for keeping me inspired!
