I remained active and kept off the weight I lost. I even tried out for a local rowing team, but after getting a new, full-time job, we prepared to move to a new city. Two weeks after the move, the company announced its closure. People were either leaving or being laid off left and right. I worked several part-time jobs while taking on the full-re...

I tried to match us as close as possible. The kids had a blast yet I can do without another dye run. It was not fun or boring just not my speed. <BR> <img src=""> <BR> This morning I ran a 10k on the Potomac River and it was deliriously gorgeous. I had on the perfect brand new running shoe by New Balance. The hoodie was by New Balance and c... Sun, 3 Nov 2013 16:36:49 EST Closing Date!!! Hello Lovely Spark People, <BR> <BR> As you know I am leaving Spark. I find myself coming on once a week, if that, and my want to stay around until December 31 is seeming more not a reality. It bothers me that I cannot lend the support that I use to and it is counteractive to be in a community but are not able to participate. <BR> <BR> Long story short, I am going to take baby steps. So... <BR> <BR> Step 1: I will be taking my page offline after this weekend. I realize that many of you an... Thu, 31 Oct 2013 21:11:17 EST 1 Week Til November... Just finished looking at some sites to join a rowing team. Rowing is going to be my next adventure! My <em>365</em> is in two weeks and I am pretty excited. The day before, the kids and I are doing the Run or Dye <em>364</em> they are going to lose it with so much excitement...I cannot wait. <BR> <BR> I bought some new running shoes today and cannot be any happier. I am finally cleared to get back to working out again feet and hand wise. This was a great setback but I am now going to ge... Mon, 21 Oct 2013 00:01:26 EST Evolving... With sadness, I have to admit that my time with Spark is coming to a close. So much has happened these last 6-8 weeks that I am really trying to calm down from the storm. As life happens, you begin to realize the most important places, people and things in your life. This does not discount Spark and all that I have received in this lovely and supportive is just time to move on! <BR> <BR> I know what to do and not, what to eat (for me) and not, when, etc. so this also prompted ... Thu, 17 Oct 2013 22:48:14 EST PF Update The podiatrist said my Plantar Fasciitis (PF) was acute! I am so thankful. He cleared me to run again and said to get a cross training running shoe, specifically New Balance. He also said to buy two pair. Uh...cross trainers are EXPENSIVE so I am not sure if I can afford this habit lol <BR> <BR> He told me NO more flats which sucks. I stand when I instruct so who got time to wear a wedged heel? Not this I am not trying to ignore the doc but...wedges for 4-6hrs ain't go cut it. I wi... Tue, 24 Sep 2013 17:54:21 EST Been a While The last time I blogged was over a week ago. This month has been a September from hell. I will spare the details and just focus on the fact I am still alive. My colleague likes to send out quotes for the day. Two resonated with me or have since the recent laundry list of drama. <BR> <BR> "I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once."-Jennifer Yane <BR> <BR> I swear this was or is my life “Problems are in your life so that you can discover potentials that yo...
