My husband is a night person rather than morning so we finished our day yesterday and instead of going to bed we drove. He would have felt worse after just a couple hours sleep so off we came towards home. We arrived home around 1 am. I slept until 8 am. The car has been unloaded and it's time for laundry. We h... Sun, 29 Nov 2015 12:17:41 EST Wonderful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6038939 It's a gorgeous Saturday in Tennessee and once we do a little outlet shopping we are heading back to the cabin for the grilling and ALABAMA/AUBURN ball game. This evening we are going to ride the Ferris wheel and bumper cars. <BR> <BR> Its been a great day. Sat, 28 Nov 2015 09:15:13 EST Black Friday RUN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6038487 I had a nice run this morning <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/f1fb1a77-4bc2-43f4-bdaf-773661ccb087.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/5ebb3840-85a4-44e7-b03e-3b3432a2b0c2.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/bf3988f1-0292-4b55-a998-a9c581e571b3.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Now out to breakfast, Aquarium, and Shopping :) <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! <BR> Fri, 27 Nov 2015 07:53:13 EST Enjoying the family http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6038294 We have spent the day at Cades Cove and Gatlinburg today and it was great fun. I did snack a bite here and bite there of things I shouldn't but didn't taste enough to make me sick... I did turn away and walk away from fudge and things I knew would make me sick. <BR> <BR> Fun day, 3 mile run this morning, ride and walk around town. Great day. Thu, 26 Nov 2015 19:07:23 EST Pigeon Forge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6037907 Well it was a longer trip than I remembered but we arrived safely and have had a nice day with family. Due to travel my steps were short with only 6400 by this evening. My niece in law walked with me to get 2 more miles and the rest of my steps for the day. It was dark and around 8 when we walked but I had my safety vest and blinkers for us to wear. I enjoyed the walk and now gearing down for bed. Our meal plan is spaghetti at the cabin as we had Thanksgiving Dinner last Saturday. Wed, 25 Nov 2015 22:02:02 EST Counting down on final day :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6037059 I have been so busy lately at work and with trying to train for this 1/2 marathon that my brain has hurt on weekends. I started the new job on Tuesdays first of October and been working before and on Fridays to see the final two kids I have in the other county... It's been a bit exhausting. I plan to enjoy my trip, run, rest, and fun... This means sleeping I am not an all night kinda girl. Travel is only about three hours each way so we wont spend all our time on the road. Leaving early... Tue, 24 Nov 2015 07:30:22 EST One to go...then off 5 days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6036866 One more day and I am off for 5. We are heading off with my sister in law and two of her Three adult Children. Two of her Sons/Wives/Kids (6 total kids, 5 boys one girl all under 8 years old). They are good kids but we are not used to the noise... Good thing we will have our own room to escape too, lol. I am taking some crafts to make with the kids at some point. <BR> <BR> No run today but have 12,000 steps from running around and getting last minute chores done and last purchases. Mon, 23 Nov 2015 20:06:00 EST Missed yesterday :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6036347 All is well! We had a fantastic early Thanksgiving dinner after my 11mile long run. I walked much more than I wanted but met the time frame we had set. Today my Quads are tender but my 2 mile walk today loosened me back up. <BR> <BR> Feeling good like I am getting some of my reserve energy back... Hope so! <BR> <BR> Have a great evening everyone! Sun, 22 Nov 2015 20:58:12 EST Night all! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6035441 Running shoes on at 6 am and three miles done before the busy day began. I have been on the go since then until about 5 minutes ago and it's 9:11 pm. Full busy day. I just finished mixing up the hashbrown casserole and the grape salad for to our family Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I am to be up early for an 11 mile run and my husband will put the casserole in for me if I am not home in time. I should have plenty of time to get my long run in and then get ready for the dinner. All the p... Fri, 20 Nov 2015 22:22:57 EST Good Thursday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6034607 It's Thursday and usually the longest day of the week...Today its not! Whoo HOO. I do start early but am done by 4 and, have a break at 1 pm (attached to 12 pm lunch!) OK I do have notes to do so I will walk at lunch but hunker down and get some notes done at 1 pm. I would rather play but I will be done early today :). I can work that hour! <BR> <BR> So good Thursday everyone. Hope you have a great day! Thu, 19 Nov 2015 07:37:17 EST Rainy day and the dogs are hyper http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6034412 No snuggle hugs today. The dogs are ripin and roaring in a playful mood. They clearly have hunkered down all day today because of the rain as they are in full play mode since coming in this evening. We love our pets. <BR> <BR> 7,000 steps today because of the pouring rain Wed, 18 Nov 2015 20:23:49 EST Reserve energy on the rise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6033532 OK, I am recovering more reserve energy. Last evening I was not as whipped. I did 3 mile walk when I got home from work. Today I have to work a little later and I am the only one in the new office today. That means handle phone messages and folks that walk in the door along with counseling. A bit of juggling with a full day of counseling... I will figure this out :) Tue, 17 Nov 2015 07:56:12 EST Fill yourself up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6032916 <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/ffbf80fd-db6c-4b2e-a846-321b40cedf16.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Feeling better today but my reserves are low and I will take care of me this week :) Mon, 16 Nov 2015 08:03:28 EST Steps done and crafting begun :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6032758 I was still muscle tired this morning so no run today. I kept the little warriors (1-5 year old nursery) today and there were 6. It went well but I really was not feeling it this morning. Some prayer before beginning to get my attitude right as it's not their fault I wore myself out running Friday. That done we had a nice time. After church my husband drove to Sams so I could get my bulk purchases for thanksgiving done. I appreciate him driving while I played facebook and messaged with ... Sun, 15 Nov 2015 21:20:38 EST Recovery and rest day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6031941 This morning I got a lot done around the house. Straightening up where stuff got dumped from such a busy week. Folded the last of the laundry and cleaned the kitchen after pre cooking some of the ingredients for the Jambalaya later today and making pickling juice. We use the pickling juice to replace that swigged in the middle of the night for leg cramps when they happen... The Jambalaya is for game time today which is an away game and we will watch from home. I am actually relieved as ... Sat, 14 Nov 2015 09:41:12 EST Tonight I am tired in a good way http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6031705 10 mile run this morning, grocery shopping, massage (ahaaah), seen a client, business calls, laundry, cooked dinner, laundry, went back out with hubby to Home Depot, laundry, and now I am sitting down finally. It was a great busy day. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is planned for fun and rest. Springville craft festival in am, then football in the afternoon. Yes laundry but other than that I will rest! Fri, 13 Nov 2015 20:40:24 EST Long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6030829 Today is a long day so I don't have much time. I did build it two breaks to try and walk today and eat! Shooting for my 10,000 steps <BR> <BR> Yesterday I had only 4063 steps... I was tired and didn't even run or walk for that matter 2 miles for the day! Well no matter it became my my REST day. I need a rest day now and then! <BR> <BR> Today is a new day lets go feed Fit Bit! Thu, 12 Nov 2015 07:43:50 EST Vetrans Day ...

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 07:57:10 EST Tight shoulders http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6029706 I am doing well but having tight neck and shoulders. It's time to see my Chiropractor. I will need to call and set something up today. Also my husband wants me to see the orthopedic doctor as he thinks I might need a MRI...ugh <BR> <BR> 5 miles yesterday walked more than I wanted too! Tue, 10 Nov 2015 08:14:44 EST Happy Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6029136 It's raining but I am feeling good this Monday morning with a plan already to run 5 miles after work with my running buddy. We will run the 5 miles as well today it is not a recovery day. My notes are up to date so I am not starting the week behind. They just need printed but are all done, woo hoo! Despite the very busy weekend that started with a 10.5 run and working the extra hours I am feeling good this morning. I did have the grumpy's and I feel like it's from overdoing. My brain ju... Mon, 9 Nov 2015 08:21:56 EST Grumpy day ended well http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6028582 After I blogged I rested. Yes rested, just maybe I needed rest, oh ya and more Tylenol. We went out to eat and watched Arizona beat Ole Miss, Woo Hoo. Then got ready and went to the ALABAMA game with 101,000 other rain gear clad people who didn't let threat of showers keep them away. Luke hooked me up last year with rain gear that I have used several times. It was really handy I mean really handy for the game. It didn't end too bad...WE BEAT LSU! A very good team, Thank you. <BR> <... Sun, 8 Nov 2015 08:26:36 EST Grumpy...was that one of the 7 Drawfs? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6028293 Well that's me today. I am not presently having vertigo, but my brain hurts today. I have taken Tylenol, I have walked 2.5 miles to try and reduce stress, and slept 9 hours last night having rested well. I am better at the moment but my head hurts. I have been having some concentration issues and struggles with the hubby while on phone trying to handle a much higher cell phone bill than expected, then rebates when the online system would not work. It's just to hard sometimes to listen to... Sat, 7 Nov 2015 15:56:38 EST The last mile was hard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6027868 I ran 10 miles before the rain hit here today in earnest. It did sprinkle by mile 7 but that felt good and by that distance it could have poured and I would have kept running to reach the goal of 10 miles. Fortunately it didn't and I did reach my goal distance. The last mile was hard. I started to walk some. I caught my breath and finished the run. <BR> <BR> I am tired in a good way. I am not cramping although I feel my left calve. All is good. Fri, 6 Nov 2015 18:07:48 EST Rocks off ... Dizzy spells, whats up with that? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6027066 During the night I did my usual visit to the bathroom and when I laid back in bed my head swam. Then this morning same thing when I rolled over to turn off the alarm. I never had this problem except when I laid in ICU for two weeks. Afterward I had to see an ENT to rebalance the rocks in my ears. It was scary do this exercise if it doesn't help surgery! So I diligently did the exercises and it worked. So this morning I started them again and let me tell you it is not pleasant deliberate... Thu, 5 Nov 2015 08:00:08 EST Wonderful Wednesday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6026468 Ok, its already starting well. I had a cancellation late yesterday evening and was able to email a Thursday appointment and shift them to that time. This one move will help so much on Thursday. I will get a lunch hour. That makes such a difference. I only eat small amounts (5 mini meals each day), so the food is not as much of an issue as time to breathe and take a walk. My work comes with stress of others problems, which means dealing with it in some way beside food. Walking and runni...

Wed, 4 Nov 2015 07:46:27 EST Happy Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6025836 Yesterday, Monday, began with me being locked out of my office with no key. I am afforded an office free at a local Department of Human Resources. Last Monday I arrived to find it had also become a storage room. I literally had to move stuff out to work. Well it's all organized up against one wall which looks like cardboard box wall paper....lol. It's free and the office is under construction being remodeled. Stuff is stored everywhere as the first third of the space were closed off and... Tue, 3 Nov 2015 07:17:27 EST Good Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6025214 It's still raining here and it would be nice to just stay home and have a lazy day, but alas...I must work to make a living. So I'm up and ready to go. Missed running yesterday because my running buddy asked to go in the afternoon (I could have gone in the morning when it was not raining) and it rained. No I don't melt and Yes I can get wet and run in the rain. I however a smart girl and 57 years old. I don't have to go out and get cold and wet and possibly sick. So instead opted for th... Mon, 2 Nov 2015 08:16:43 EST I did it! 1200 miles in 2015 Everything else this year is BONUS MILES http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6024907 I am stoked with my October Mileage completed and tallied for the year .... I am now unofficially a member of the Anniston Runners Club 1200 mile club!!! Whoo Hoo. The official stuff happens at the Annual Dinner in January. <BR> <BR> As of October 31, 2015 I had 1241 training miles logged! <BR> <BR> Who would have ever thought it. I will tell you this it is by God's grace alone. Having to recover from the Liver Hemorrhage and the open abdominal surgery would not have happened in my po... Sun, 1 Nov 2015 19:19:44 EST Still walking after first 9 mile run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6024381 I am happy to have survived the first 9 mile run in my training schedule yesterday. I did three miles today with my puppy. She went for the first time that distance and did great. She is so sweet. She had a great time and so did I. <BR> <BR> We had trunk R treat at the church tonight and yes it rained. I however stormed last year and just sprinkled this year. We had fun just the same. Sat, 31 Oct 2015 21:28:35 EST 9 mile training run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6023827 I finished my 9 mile training run in 2 hours and 30 minutes...whew. My day began with me running late afterward as I started my run 30 minutes later than I planned. I managed to get to my first location only 15 minutes late and 10 for the second. I had some time built in so made it to the third on time. I however didn't get lunch. That was the time built in. I instead had a healthy balance cheese and nut snack mid morning and a P3 before my 2:30 appointment. All in all a good day. Ton... Fri, 30 Oct 2015 17:57:41 EST Today is not a long day :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6023012 I plan to run with a work associate after work today so should get my steps in. I chose to take a rest day last evening because I just was not feeling those additional 4,000 steps. I didn't get to walk during the day and I went down and walked about 500 steps on the treadmill but just wasn't feeling well at that point. I had about 6,000 steps for the day total. I think part of the problem was some broccoli salad I ate. I think I had some dumping syndrome reaction and I just felt yucky. ... Thu, 29 Oct 2015 07:24:39 EST Time change.....ugh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6022443 I woke up early and just got up. I have been crashing too early in the evening then staying up too late because of napping in the chair. I guess my body is beginning to acclimate to the upcoming change. The 10:00 news said go to bed early and start getting up early. Funny but I would never have heard this if I had not napped in my chair and stayed up late. OH time change let it be over and my body acclimated quickly. <BR> <BR> I walked on the treadmill and got my steps in. I didn't ru... Wed, 28 Oct 2015 07:35:11 EST FIT BIT log? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6021930 I am wondering why fit bit said I had 5.2 miles on the devise but recorded 4.89 on the log? I was very disappointed that my devise told me I had completed a 5 mile run but when I checked the log after sync it did not reflect it! What's up I wonder. May have to contact fit bit to discover the problem. <BR> <BR> Despite that I ran 5 miles yesterday. I really took the time to stretch afterward and feel fully recovered today. Tue, 27 Oct 2015 08:21:13 EST The rain has hit Alabama from Patricia http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6021318 Prayers for those who have been effected by this storm and thanks for only rain that will not be flooding in our area. I don't especially like lugging my work gear (rolling Computer/file briefcase, second supply/toy bag and lunch) in and out of the building in the rain. This morning however I will give thanks for just rain and not flooding or hurricane and give thanks! <BR> <BR> My calves are much better but still a little tight. I am carrying my running clothes (also have to be lugged ... Mon, 26 Oct 2015 07:55:35 EST NASCAR SUNDAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6021059 I won tickets to this NASCAR race and we went today. It was a great race but anticlimactic finish. I wanted to see Jeff race for this win at his last race in Talladega. It was not so much the win but the finish. DH is disappointed that Dale did not get the win and make the chase. This is the first time we have attended since 2004. It was fun and I enjoyed my door prize immensely but don't have to do this next year either. We nearly fainted (figuratively not really) with the Tennessee A... Sun, 25 Oct 2015 18:55:26 EST Alabama Football and Talladega SuperSpeedway NASCAR http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6020293 Its Nascar weekend in our area and Tennessee/Alabama football game. Traffic will be a mess so I am logging on while I have the chance. It's time to get out on the road so I will check in later. <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Sat, 24 Oct 2015 09:13:25 EST 8 mile run! Woo Hoo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6020037 8 miles 2:09! For me this is great. No it's not fast but it is getting it done. Training for that 13.1 in December. I am thrilled with my progress I ran the entire 8 miles except brief steps when drinking or stopping for the bathroom. I kept going and I didn't stop and rest! OK I can do this! I am doing this and getting it done. The ankle seems healed. I didn't have and twinges today and no pain (well no more than my other foot and ankle...lol. <BR> <BR> Nice day! Fri, 23 Oct 2015 20:21:19 EST Some days are busy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6019201 I guess Wednesday was one of them as I didn't have time to sign in... <BR> <BR> I did get my walk in and 10,000 steps. It was a good day just busy. <BR> <BR> Hope to have a great day today! Thu, 22 Oct 2015 08:02:21 EST Independent Contractor http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6018052 I have always been an independent contractor and worked for myself. Paid all the bills, bought my own supplies ect... Last week was the first time since 1989 I worked somewhere that someone else did it all. I was responsible for counseling and notes only. I left early because we were done. It was a strange sensation. Today I am going back and well it still feels strange. I don't have to lug computer, internet, files, supplies... They are all in my car because I do still travel and work ... Tue, 20 Oct 2015 08:34:34 EST Good Monday Birthday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6017798 It was a busy day that promised no lunch or break till 4 pm. I had a no show at 11:00 am which gave me time to eat and walk. It was a beautiful day for a walk! Today is my birthday and well I actually forgot until I looked at the calendar. Then all the face book wishes started dinging on my phone all day. It was quit nice to get those messages today. <BR> <BR> The surprise at work is the office I use in Talladega was basically turned in to storage as they prepare to remodel the buildi... Mon, 19 Oct 2015 20:06:40 EST Notes caught up :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6017206 I got behind with being away most of one week and playing catch up the next. So tonight I caught all the typing of notes up. I always write notes in notebook but have to type in a specific format for payment (and getting paid for my work is important!) So anyhow, I got it all caught up tonight. I start this week caught up and am relieved. <BR> <BR> I only have 7,000 steps tonight and my back and head hurt. Yep, I took Tylenol and now am going to stretch after finishing this blog. It's 8... Sun, 18 Oct 2015 21:32:18 EST Today's run and other things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6016776 Janney Furnace 5K time was 39:09 not a PR but I was happy with it. It was the first time since first of September I have mostly run a 3 mile run. I must run more than I walk in the upcoming weeks since my running buddy is well and my own ankle is recovered. We bought new LG phones and while I like it the transition has not been as seamless as I had hoped. Tomorrow will be a better time to focus on it when I am less tired. This evening we WON Alabama beat Texas A&M! We had to go to a we... Sun, 18 Oct 2015 00:02:32 EST Annual follow up with Nurirional bloodwork http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6016196 I have to wait to get the results but the doctors visit and review went well. He was pleased with the 23 BMI and with my running. It was a beautiful day and instead of doing house work (although I did let the washer and dryer do their thing), and went outside and helped my husband in the yard instead. We had to work on the fenced in area as out Doxie keeps getting out of the fence because the puppy is digging holes for her under the fence. Yes the Boxer is shoving rocks out of the way, bl... Fri, 16 Oct 2015 19:49:17 EST Thursday is jam packed but not extra long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6015322 Today I start on the go early and book it till 4 pm when I might be done for the day (originally it would not have been till 6 pm). The only problem with this is I don't have an actual lunch time. I will have to eat between clients some how. This will work out. I don't like doing this to myself as I don't get a mid day walk which is also a stress reliever in my job. Getting off early makes up for much of that :) <BR> <BR> I did not get my 10,000 steps for yesterday. I went down and wal... Thu, 15 Oct 2015 07:29:50 EST Tuesday went well day one :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6015136 I had four session on my first day at work at the Child Advocacy Center. It went well. We left early because I finished early...Strange sensation to me to leave early like that. Today was busy catching up after being in a workshop all week last week. I felt a little fried at the end of the day. No walk time during the day playing catch up. I walked on the treadmill this evening but didn't get my 10,000 steps. <BR> <BR> I did earn my Nile badge for walking 4,132 lifetime miles since J... Wed, 14 Oct 2015 21:14:13 EST First day new Tuesday Job http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6014211 I am not sure but I think I could be alone today....The person that hired me is off on vacation. Perhaps the office person will be there. I think that's the plan. I don't know if I have any sessions on schedule. I suspect I will spend the time orienting, organizing the office, and looking at previous paperwork (report framework) for when I do see someone.
