I was talking myself out of going! But I went. Lynette and Luke were going too, so I went. I am glad I did. Yes, I had to walk and catch my breath more but I still finished 5.18 miles in 1 hour 18 minutes with a 15:06 mile split. I am glad I went! Got my 12,000 steps so the rest of the day is doing what I want! That's out of the way!!!!! <BR> <BR> Massage this afternoon, Walmart, maybe some clothes... Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:39:56 EST Wheezing and coughing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803190 This basically became so on Sunday after the ball game Saturday. Being out in the elements on the beautiful football Saturday just infused me with ALABAMA allergies that could at one time! I have had a bit of a rollercoaster of symptoms since. <BR> <BR> I did go outside and walk on a 70 ish breezy day that was to beautiful to pass up. I had no symptoms at the time but maybe I am paying for it this morning? I don't want to stop walking outside ? I hope this is nothing else developing, I ... Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:05:47 EST Dreams http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802609 I dreamed a lot last night....hm A lot was about church. I was given a message that sometimes there is more. This message came from a client who is a pastors wife and somewhat prophetic in a dream last night. I almost felt there was something more she needed to tell about her past...something more. Then I went on to dream about out church service that was just a little bit different (our church motto) because there was an ajoining room (which there is not in our church) where this man ... Wed, 22 Oct 2014 07:31:02 EST Lost Blog? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802355 OK I have points for posting today and I did try to post twice this morning but there is no blog here this afternoon? Well I don't know... <BR> <BR> So if you have commented on a blog from earlier today I just can't see it. I had a great day and got 12,000 steps. Time for dinner and relaxation :) Tue, 21 Oct 2014 19:52:51 EST It's a beautiful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801322 It's beautiful fall weather in ALABAMA. It's been warm longer and enough rain that grasses and weeds are crazy pollen. After being out this weekend the body is full of allergens. Dosing with appropriate allergy meds and nose spray. I think this is why my last few runs have been harder. I have the cough that goes along with all this. I am taking care of myself and will head to the doctor if needed but right now it seems to clearly just be a spike in allergies. (No I have not been out o... Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:09:53 EST It's my birthday and I'll run if I want to.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801009 It was a tougher run today and cool weather. The DH went with me and my friend L. She also had a hard run but we did 5 miles walking a lot more than either of us wished. I had a date with my sewing machine after the run and Lunch. It went well and the Tshirt with transfer for my costume and sequin running skirt to wear with it are done! I worked on my trunk R treat plan today while watching NASCAR. DH is disappointed Jr didn't make it in the chase. Jeff did ! He would have rather Je... Sun, 19 Oct 2014 17:52:19 EST Up and dressed to run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800215 We are heading out for a run. Yes my DH is going with me. The man kept up with me yesterday running. I was run/walking in intervals for him but he kept up. Today he tells me he is just walking as his ankle hurts some. That's ok with me. We are off to the Honda Trail nearby early. <BR> <BR> We will get back and get ready to leave for ALABAMA football by 2:30 pm! We will be a T-town for the game with Texas A+M. The ride home will be tough because of race traffic arriving between Birm... Sat, 18 Oct 2014 07:31:02 EST Running, ALABAMA Football, NASCAR and confession! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799720 And the influx of people begins making Lincoln the largest population in the state by Race Day, due to NASCAR racing at the Talladega International Speedway. Folks have been coming in campers since Sunday. It's exciting but inconvenient. We have learned to shop and do all necessities ahead of time. We have a football game that takes us from the area but, returning home Saturday evening when Race fans are also arriving. We may plan a back route for as much of it as we can. Although, aft... Fri, 17 Oct 2014 08:38:22 EST Winter Quilt Warm :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799103 I was cold yesterday morning but not this morning. I slept so good with the warmer winter quilt on the bed. It's still cool here this morning but it just makes a difference when you don't get out of bed already chilled. Yesterday was a tough work day with fewer steps than planned. I didn't get that lunch time walk and ended up working through lunch while I ate may sandwich. The headache I had lessoned but never quite went away till after I got home. This morning is feeling like a new we... Thu, 16 Oct 2014 07:34:23 EST Seems dark and cold suddenly http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798530 It seems this week to be dark early and cold since the rain, Monday. This morning my poor husband could not move for me being plastered against him to get warm. So the winter quilt went on the bed this morning and I am sitting under a small electric warming blanket while typing this morning. No it's not really cold enough for the heat but I find I just don't have the insulating fat I once had! Yes, it is a different kind of problem to have :) <BR> <BR> Yesterday, it was dark by the time ... Wed, 15 Oct 2014 07:47:21 EST 5 mile practice run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797913 Ok this was a tough run. why is that some days??? It was a hard 5mile but done! <BR> <BR> Got a lot done and ended the day with picking up dinner at olive garden. <BR> <BR> I was happily tired last evening. <BR> <BR> Ok new day, lets get going!! <BR> <BR> Tue, 14 Oct 2014 08:30:25 EST Really nice Sunday Walk/Run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797267 We had a great Worship service and got home in time to change for Coldwater Mountain trail !! My husband went with ME and we walked it together. That's him in the middle in Grey and Black shorts. I am to beside him. No the other man didn't run in his bare feet, he had finished before most and taken his shoes off :). My girl friend ran too that's her in the dark grey shirt. It was fun. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/0/l1067697202.jpg"> <BR> ...

I would have been there probably 6 hours alone. I had to take time to train her to do it first....but it was worth it! So afterward a nice chick fil la salad, walmart for the costume T shirt, Sams for almond milk and Halloween candy (40.00 and I don't know if it's enough...ugh) to go with the glow bracelets and rub on Jesus tattoos. Afterward a nice 1.5 mile run at Oxford lake and then home. I met my steps for the day, got i... Sun, 12 Oct 2014 08:12:47 EST craft fair, fabric, fun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796201 The weather was great for the craft fair yesterday. I got a ceramic flower frog for the top of mason jar. I will have to take a picture but it's to help a few flowers stand up in the wide mouth jar as it lays on top of the jar. The booth was run by a counselor associate out of Tuscaloosa so that was fun to run into her too. My friend Carole and I did the craft show then went fabric shopping. I got a royal blue sequin fabric for my super hero skirt. Today I will get the T shirt for the t...

I am in the red in the middle. Yes, that is me before I lost weight and started my journey. Fit Bit keeps me honest and accountable and has become a daily reminder to give thanks. You can ask anytime and I can tell you my steps right then, but they don't begin to ref... Wed, 8 Oct 2014 08:27:25 EST Planning the Tunk or Treat Theme http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5793855 I hit Dollar General and got some plastic table cloths and streamers. I have a plan to use foam board or a cardboard shield if there is one left over from VBS last year and my Emblem to stand up in the hatchback of the van with a table cloth some how suspended behind it. I am thinking spring loaded curtain rod maybe. I have to find some of those battery lights for like the closet.

I am glad I am not running a race this morning. Today is a rest and hydrate day. Now I will still be busy but am not running. We are going to wash dogs and build pvc raised dog beds.

We had about 15 people run and there was also about 10 bike riders on the trail. It was fun however, L the woman in the center, fell. She hit hard. I didn't see it but she looked like she would hurt from the size of the dirt stains on her. She hit her thigh, hand, and side of the face. OUCHHHHH.....! She didn't run Sunday with us as we planned as she felt too stoved (stiff, sore. possibly Middle South origin) up. She planned a good...

We had a good run at Coldwater and then I had fun teaching two teen agers to make pillow cases. They were great fun. Our devotion used the Totally tubular pattern to teach that God gives us a pattern for life just as we have a pattern to follow to sew this project. There were only four of us two teens and my sewing pal. I taught her how to do muslin foundation piecing cra...

He walked I ran. It was cool and the sun felt good for once when we came into it. I saw the chiropractor and got a good adjustment. I then had a massage, got groceries, went to home depot (got the pvc pipe to make raised dog beds for winter), Sams Club and dinner with hubby's sister and her daughter.

So I am giving thanks in this today! I managed to get my 10,000 steps in yesterday which was a great surprise. Generally Wednesday and Thursdays are the days that I have trouble doing this. So I always consider 10,000 on those days a BONUS! <BR> <BR> Hope you have a great day!

We will walk at minimum of 3 miles during it. I know I can run 6 slow on flat land ( I did at the beach). I want the medal! Everyone who finishes will get a medal. I am not going to earn one for speed, so I will have to go for distance. :) I am feeling ready and dreamed about running it to the song "Roar" as I awakened this morning. I can do this! <BR> <BR> Today is the firs... Tue, 23 Sep 2014 07:41:43 EST Happy Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784554 Awoke feeling good. Sitting right now posting and smiling. I feel good. This past week has been hard and well the news yesterday my sister in law had a fire and never called us upsetting. I talked with my husband about calling his sisters at least weekly. We don't just run into each other like we used to. <BR> <BR> LIFE IS GOOD! Mon, 22 Sep 2014 07:41:50 EST Fire http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784295 I have always been fearful of fire. When I was a child I remember the fire safety class as elementary school. I promptly came home and told my dad who helped me know what our home safety plan was. What window I would climb out, what tree to climb on to. Where he would be to help me. From the time I was a child I made my bed because I feared my feet tangling in the covers and not letting me escape in case of fire. Even today my bed is made every day first thing in the morning. If not (w... Sun, 21 Sep 2014 20:50:18 EST Second run with Brooks Ravenna http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783332 The second run went really good. No sore ankle. Four miles instead of 5 because of time. I enjoyed the first chiropractic visit with the new chiropractor. My rib is better today. <BR> <BR> So why am I up????? I don't know. I will have time to sleep on the ride to Tuscaloosa for the football game. Headed for a 2:30 game. We are planning to run and then leave for the game. Watching TV right now and checking in! <BR> <BR> have a great day everyone. Sat, 20 Sep 2014 05:38:39 EST Today I run :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5782783 I got new shoes last week before we had to deal with so much loss and have used them for one run. New shoes new biomechanics. So the jury is out on if they are great. When I put them on I didn't want to take them off. When I ran my left anckel felt it. Today will be test run two at 5 miles. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/2/l527111627.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I did not use my new shoes on the cold water mountain trail run as I didn't want to risk mud and having troubl...

I did get my 10,000 steps in,unlike yesterday that only achieved 3,000 steps. My rib hurts where I think I have a rib out of place. I see a new chiropractor tomorrow as mine is retiring. Hopefully he will straighten my spine back out :). <BR> <BR> Today was not a bad day despite the length of it. I hope you all had a great day!

He wanted a celebration of praise and worship music and that's what we will do. I made arrangements to leave work and 12 pm and will be back by 3 pm for evenings sessions. Lunch on the road so I am packing a sandwich I can eat while driving with a snack on the way back to work before 3 pm. After work is the visitation for EMMA at her church in Munford Alabama.

I am so sad for this family and our church family who says goodbye to him. I know he sat in the Heavenly presence of God at the moment he left this world but the grieving here of his passing has only begun. My friends please remember the Clayton family in your prayers today. Their father lost his battle with stage 4 colon cancer last night but gained his angel wings in Heaven. <BR> <BR>...

She has been very considerate using wipes to wide phones and key board etc. just in case. Well thank you Tina because this week when she went to the Doc they said she had a virus. I hope not to get it!!! I don't know its the new virus that is sending a scare through the US but well I don't want it. She is feverish and staying home. <BR> <BR> It turns out my doctor has a new appointment scheduling company who is not over schedul... Wed, 10 Sep 2014 07:34:54 EST Annual check up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5776358 I am going in for the annual check up and flu shot today .... maybe. <BR> <BR> I only have a certain amount of time so I either get in and out of I have to leave and go to work and reschedule. I will not be held hostage for 3 hours ever again. I really like this doctor but since she moved a year ago its been terrible. I just may be going back to the center where she used to work and trying a new doc. The reason I left this clinic (because I love the other doc who is still there but I st... Tue, 9 Sep 2014 07:44:20 EST Good moring! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5775699 Well I feel bright eyed and bushy tailed for a Monday morning having got to bed early and got plenty of sleep. After stretching yesterday I laid on the bed for another stretch and as I moved my leg in a wide slow ark the lower back near the sacrum popped and the relief was immediate. I guess that is the pressure spot creating the sciatica issue. Seems better so we shall see if this has some lasting effect as the week progresses of is just temporary. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to a great Mo... Mon, 8 Sep 2014 08:44:26 EST Holy Spirit present today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5775300 Wow what a great worship service with prayer and praise song. It was a great service. We had got up early and went and already had our workout in. I ran 5 miles with Lynette and Luke walked his running some down hills. I did my personal best at 15.14 for the mile splits for this 5 mile run. <BR> <BR> Today I am having some Sciatica pain. My hubby did a little stretching on the bed for it and it seems to have helped some. I have been having it at the end of the day for a couple weeks. ... Sun, 7 Sep 2014 17:48:22 EST Sweat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5774778 I did not sweat that much when I ran my 5 miles as I did today in Tuscaloosa Alabama. Oh my Gosh it was hot. I came out of the stands for a break from the heat and sweating in the first and the second quarter. I actually had a old fashioned fan but didn't wear a hat and should have. When I came back up to the stands the second time, my husband was wilted and I have never seen him wilted before. We made it a bit longer and then the ballgame was such a blow out we headed out. The ramps an... Sat, 6 Sep 2014 20:51:21 EST Great Friday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5774177 Well yesterdays step count was around 4,600. On heavy client days I end up with far fewer steps. In addition my office person needs me to do things during lunch so she can continue to bill in the afternoon. I just have to do the best I can. Today however was great...and it's not even done yet :). <BR> <BR> Today I have 17,000 steps. I went and got my nails done first thing, then met my hubby at the local park and ran 5 miles, next a massage, and home for a shower. I have been grocery ... Fri, 5 Sep 2014 19:36:45 EST
