My husband and I are looking forward to a boat ride this evening so I hope the weather cooperates. Fri, 29 May 2015 07:53:01 EST Where was I yesterday? I didn't check in... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5935858 It's Thursday and I didn't blog yesterday I guess?? We are having a rainy evening in Alabama and I am home. Glad to be just sitting down. I got a walk in at lunch. I felt my eyes wanting to droop and close on the ride home. Blood sugar...I don't know could be I had not eaten since lunch. <BR> <BR> I see my doctor tomorrow and will talk to her about all this stuff and see what she thinks. Have a good evening everyone.

I have the morning off to update my resume for a one day a week of contract work. While I am very interested in this salaried day at a local children's center where they do counseling for abused children I will have to give something up for this income. So what to give up is the issue. I am praying about this and don't have a good answer. I just know I can't divide myself up more. <BR> <BR> What do I giv... Tue, 26 May 2015 07:40:33 EST Tomorrowland http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5934197 Yes, we went to the movie and saw Tomorrowland today. It was good with a nice message about choice. Feed positive or negative in life. It was rainy here today so Movie instead of boating on the river. I walked with my friend this morning as the clouds were rolling in and the breeze blowing 3.45 mile walk added to my training total for the month Happy, happy, happy. Kicked back and watching some recorded TV with the DH toning. enjoying the end of the day. <BR> <BR> I hope you each hav... Mon, 25 May 2015 20:58:22 EST Taking time to Praise God http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5933394 It's sunday and we are getting ready for church. As I go I am collecting clothing that a church family member can wear as she has lost her home to a fire this past week. I didn't know till yesterday so last minute I am gathering things I hope she can use. Feeling thankful for their lives and not to be going through this ourselves. Fire is scary to me. Have a great day where ever you are and give thanks! Sun, 24 May 2015 09:23:03 EST Fishing tournament...almost won the boat, almost... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5933192 My DH entered the fishing tournament so their boat was one of the many racing up and down the river today. 500 boats and 1000 contestants. Marks bass tournament on Logan Martin Lake. I awoke early despite his trying to not wake me. After a early walk with my running buddy I went to the grocery. I made Texas Caviar, a marinated cucumber salad and stuffed some eggs for our dinner tonight with some smoked pork (yes we are southern). I then went to watch the bass tournament weigh in. DH an... Sat, 23 May 2015 20:59:00 EST Hello and GOOD DAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5932659 I went and got my blood drawn this morning but when I got there they had no order. Thankfully they took my blood and then got the order (at least I hope so). I had to go back by the MD office and for the third time this week asked for the order. (I called the first two times). I got to walk 4 miles and a massage today. Doing the laundry now and hope to have a boat ride this evening. <BR> <BR> Hope each of you are having a great day. We are having pleasantly cool weather without rain. ...

Yesterday I ate a portion of chicken with some alfrado sauce and very little pasta and cantaloupe, then an hour later was crashing in the middle of a session. I reached for the peanut butter crackers and they helped. I however am loosing things all the time and can't find them. Presently a camera and mp3 player right now for at least 3 days I am searching with no success. This morning my watch and remote both places they never are and I had to search and f...

It is also the last two days of school here in Alabama so who remembers counseling??? Generally the day is full of no shows. Well I have paperwork and letters that need done and I will take advantage of this time. I am also taking my running clothes and a wash cloth/ towel in case I get the chance to run. Graduations started last night, some tonight, and then again on Thursday. <BR> <BR> I got my 10,000 steps and walke... Wed, 20 May 2015 08:00:57 EST Lab work scheduled http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930670 Lab work scheduled Friday (thyroid included) and appointment next week for primary doc to review and make adjustments. It's time to get all my prescriptions renewed and deal with the new pharmacy company and insurance since my husbands management company changed. We are not sure of the coverage but these things need done so I will be going to these appointments. I called the nutritionist and am waiting for a call back to schedule something there. Some of the weight gain was fluid and I ... Tue, 19 May 2015 09:02:31 EST Monday rush... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5929999 Monday rush this morning. Have to check in later! Have a great day everyone! Mon, 18 May 2015 07:54:06 EST gaining still???? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5929487 I ran an 8K with a walking before and after and had 7.18 miles for the day. So how do I gain 3 more lbs. since I last weighed? I ate 1362 calories yesterday so how am I gaining. This is now 8 lbs . I have run 19 miles in the past three days and not eaten over 1400 calories a day. What is going on...I have to stop this....fast. Am I going to have to stop running so much???? But I love running. Who runs and gains weight. I don't get it! <BR> <BR> Ok most of this is a positive report a... Sun, 17 May 2015 08:31:58 EST 8 K Done! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5929182 I completed the 8 K this morning in 1:05:56 time. It was overcast and that helped a lot. I have 18,000 steps and still have floors to vacuum. I am tired but stoked I got second in my age group again! one first and two seconds so far :)... <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/e8c95913-af86-4ad3-b819-4a42f99b5f92.jpg"> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/680da49c-77b3-437e-959d-d851ca7b5c7a.jpg"> <BR> <BR> So now if I can just find my camera???? Sat, 16 May 2015 15:19:53 EST Miles done for yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5928500 Well I heard from the Bariatric nutritionist and she gave me the name of one of her associates for me to call. I will do so today and set something in a couple of weeks after I have food diaries. Yesterday mornings schedule dissolved with cancellations so I took advantage of it. I got a pedicure and then when the rest of the cancellations came in I walked 1 mile in my flip flops to let the toes dry then came in put my running clothes on and ran 3. I walked additional mile and 1/2 after wo... Fri, 15 May 2015 08:17:26 EST Long day of the month today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5927915 I seem to be doing things out of order today but I am getting them done. Like I dressed putting on a white shirt before brushing my teeth??? I have it all done but I seem out of wack. <BR> <BR> OK I tracked my food yesterday and got my steps in including a walk at mid day. <BR> <BR> I had additional thoughts last evening that I might need my thyroid checked. My doses have not changed recently but weight gain, emotion swings (strong grief this week), and tired (I am running a lot which c... Thu, 14 May 2015 07:55:00 EST Gained 5 lbs? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5927351 For all of 2014 through the past two months I weighed 122 lbs. In the last two months I have gained and now weigh 127. I am running so much more is this why? Well I don't know. Today I begin tracking my food again. Last night I emailed the bariatric dietician about the date of the next support group and about a consultation. I will do at least two weeks of food diaries to take with me. I am not stressing over this but don't want to ignore this either. <BR> <BR> Right now I am at 63.... Wed, 13 May 2015 07:41:05 EST Today is a better day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5926793 I am doing better today. I just needed to grieve loss yesterday it seems. As the day went on I did better. I had tons of support and prayers and that helps thank you all for the kind words. Basically as I left for work I was fine. It's funny my first client was dealing with friendship loss and I wondered if this was not part of God's plan to remind me of this hurt and how to deal with it so I could in turn help her. I did get my Hello card for my friend and filled it out. I called and... Tue, 12 May 2015 08:09:34 EST Processing some grief today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5926180 This morning I am grieving and missing a friendship past. Someone I sewed and quilted with. We live not too far apart but with time and her retirement the distance seems insurmountable. I miss her. It seems our lives have gone in different directions. She had friends to do things with all week and then didn't feel the desire to go and do on the weekends. Her husband at the time was not retired and she appropriately so, committed her time on the weekend to him during his final years be... Mon, 11 May 2015 07:11:44 EST Mothers day run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925725 Happy Mothers Day! I have already accomplished a 5.63 run this morning and am dressed and ready to leave for church. We did not have Sunday school today because it's Mothers day but will have church service at 10:30. I am ready to worship. This afternoon we plan to put the boat into the water and take a little cruise. Looking forward to some fun today. <BR> <BR> Hope you have a Blessed Mothers day as well! Sun, 10 May 2015 10:34:26 EST When HGTV comes to town. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925485 I got a 3 mile run this morning. My hubby and I then went to visit a local out door craft show on a beautiful day. I found a pretty pottery honey pot for my recently bought local honey. We bought new floral displays for our parents grave sites and went by and placed them today. It had been a beautiful day. SURPRISE...We arrived home to what looked like a party we were not invited to on our Pier. So my husband goes down to investigate only to find HGTV. Yes, I said HGTV filming our nei... Sat, 9 May 2015 21:31:55 EST Power of positive toughts! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5925019 Yesterday I chose to stay positive despite the news I would behind on billing because T was sick (along with her whole family fighting the stomach virus). As it turns out C who has been working out beautifully doing filing and organizing things, caught on real fast to these billing invoices. God bless her she got them all done. I am blessed and giving thanks that she was able to pick up so fast. This means the invoices are turned in on time and T will not have to play catch up next week. ... Fri, 8 May 2015 21:15:13 EST New day still going :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924099 I had a good day, busy day yesterday. It had a frustrating beginning with AT&T but the installation man made things right. The third party AT&T company had basically lied and he cancelled the order for me. He was also frustrated with the AT&T people when he finally got through. So I started 15 minutes late and ran late all day, even after I caught up at noon, I ended up behind again. UGH..I am glad it was and otherwise good day. My billing person and her flock of children are home sick ... Thu, 7 May 2015 07:41:29 EST Good thing I am ahead... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5923530 The virus is running through my business billing persons family. Yes she got bit with it yesterday herself! NOT FUN. Seriously, she has 4 kids and thankfully a helpful nurse practitioner husband. Thankfully she also has support from family. I have checked and they are good but still, NOT FUN! <BR> <BR> For me it means I must get my billing invoices done without her, and work really full days today and tomorrow. UGH. Well the good news is I have faced this often in the past without ONE... Wed, 6 May 2015 08:07:08 EST Good Tuesday everyone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5922910 Woo Hoo I have 22 miles already this month and it's the 5 th. I will get some today but Wed and Thurs. might be hard to get 10,000 steps in. Having a good week and feeling good. Taco Salads last night for dinner were delicious and we will have the left overs tonight. It's a busy Tuesday but it should be a good day with time for a walk at noon. <BR> <BR> Have a good day everyone! Tue, 5 May 2015 08:30:49 EST Monday after the Race http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5922259 The campers are making their exodus from the area. They must be out of the campgrounds this morning. Their will be the longest line of pop up, trailers, fifth wheels, buses, and motor coaches leaving the track. I have seen some long lines at Alabama Football games but nothing like this before. <BR> <BR> I am on my way to work, but the school children in this county are all out of school. It is to keep the school buses out of the race traffic. I had a really good weekend and despite ru... Mon, 4 May 2015 08:09:42 EST Run and Nascar http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5921690 The river is so quiet today and peaceful compared to yesterday. I am enjoying "Bird on a Wire" with Goldie Hawn this morning. A classic while tying this and drinking my shake. I am planning to hit the back roads for a run this morning and then some yard work again today just a little. We plan to watch the race. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I did 6.40 miles and ran most of it. I missed my running buddy who was having a beautiful wedding day for her daughter. I don't know if she will run today he... Sun, 3 May 2015 08:33:35 EST Sleeping in was the plan...Fishing tournament interupted :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5921185 Move to the river, they said....It will be relaxing, they said.... Fishing tournament Alarm rang this morning... Vroooooooooooooooooom progressively louder until they pass by and fade again. Thought we were going to sleep in. Mind you this is not just once but at intervals one behind the other. This starts and continues on and off even now 30 minutes later still zooming by. The Vroooooooooooooom will be echoing over land from Talladega Super Speedway soon as well. The Saturday Race to... Sat, 2 May 2015 08:01:02 EST Workshop http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5920632 Going to go for a one day work shop and riding with work associates that are also friends. It should be a good day with nice weather. I might rather stay home for this weather than stay cooped up in a workshop but going in to BHM with rain is not fun, nor is parking and walking in around less familiar area's. Well there is the txt they are on the way and I am off to meet them. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Fri, 1 May 2015 08:03:09 EST Early start but Early finish ;) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5920078 Today I start at 8 am but am getting off at 5 pm. YES, I am glad. Particularly as I have an all day workshop on Friday so the end of today wont be totally exhausting. <BR> <BR> I am looking good on my monthly mileage and happy about that. I hope you are getting your steps in and doing well! <BR> <BR> Have a great day Thu, 30 Apr 2015 07:51:03 EST opps I missed posting yesterday :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5919851 Missed posting yesterday...don't know why I thought I did post? Today I was almost late for work. I jumped on to post but checked my schedule first only to discover I should have been at the Office at 8 not 9 as I was planning. So off to work I went. It was a good day and I got my 3.45 mile walk in. That means I am at 103.45 miles for this month! I still can add a few miles tomorrow to help my overall total. Wed, 29 Apr 2015 20:04:47 EST Off Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5918354 The office I work in on Mondays is a State office although I am not a state employee, I get to be off as they are closed. Today I will do some sewing and then some house chores. I will make a nice dinner since I am home after a walk and tanning. I am right now loving that sunbed and I have never been a tanning bed person. That heat is however very nice... <BR> <BR> Hope you have a great Monday! Mon, 27 Apr 2015 07:54:36 EST I got a medal! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5917824 Still happily shocked to have won a medal for my age class 55-59. THANKING GOD for his mercy and grace to have healed me and made me strong enough to run this race and for my very life. At one time I just didn't know this was in me. When God said to me it would be alright that he had this, I had no clue it included becoming a runner. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1118848047.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/2/l926634808.jpg... Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:19:58 EST Pouring rain passing so getting ready to run! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5917331 I have a 5 k today and thankfully the pouring rain, and I mean pouring since about 4 am has passed through the area. We may still have sprinkles but looks like no thunder or lightning. These folks run even in pouring weather if its not lightning. I am not sure I am that hard core but I will run today. I have my rain jacket and a change of clothes and am up getting ready to go. My dh is going with me today and I appreciate him for his support. Our orthopedic doctor is one of the sponsors... Sat, 25 Apr 2015 07:06:20 EST Feeling more balanced http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5916804 This week while it has still been extremely busy has felt so much better. My new office person has worked 3 weeks filing and organizing months of data for me, has already paid off. I am up to date on my paperwork as I am no longer shuffling papers to find what I need all the time. I pull a chart and my information is there. Instead of looking for stuff I am getting stuff done. Wow this feels great! On top of that the person who does my billing, who I pay well to do this, can get her job... Fri, 24 Apr 2015 07:45:59 EST Service Engine Soon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5916252 The light came on yesterday...ugh. I hate going to the dealer as this service usually cost's. Then there are the other things they find that need done.... Well we are set up for Friday. It's the fuels systems service time. <BR> <BR> Hm...should bodies come with Service engine soon lights and other indicators. I have learned over this journey that we do and I am trying to listen to my indicators sooner rather than later doing regular maintenance on me. That's why I still walked three mi... Thu, 23 Apr 2015 08:10:06 EST Summer Skirt weather http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5915640 I love wearing skirts in the summer to work. Not so much in the winter. My long underwear look a little funny...lol. I am cold and layer away all winter. So summer I pull out my skirts and yes still need a light sweater inside some air-conditioned restaurants and work location but love summer skirts! Today my outfit is a new white gauzy summer skirt and peach top with turquoise sandals. I will have to add my summer sweater. <BR> <BR> I have a full day today with a lunch webinar. I wil... Wed, 22 Apr 2015 08:33:03 EST RUN! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5915021 YMCA 5K practice was last night and I was totally the sweeper. Which means last, last, last. So last that I couldn't even see the person I was behind anymore. So after I got yelled at crossing the street by someone impatient because someone else stopped to let me pass, (I will make sure I have my pepper spray next time even when group running), I started discouraging myself over finishing. The devil was doing his job and I was feeling incapable. I thought about taking another route and just r... Tue, 21 Apr 2015 07:58:59 EST Practice day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5914386 I have a 5 k this weekend. Tonight we have a practice on that route and then a workshop following given by the Anniston Orthopedics office. They sponsor this run each year. The good news is it will be dry! Thank you very much :). <BR> <BR> Gotta get out of here today and get to work. <BR> <BR> Hope you have a great day! Mon, 20 Apr 2015 08:12:09 EST Steps and rest...Storms forcast tonight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5914074 I have 14,000 steps for the day and I am done. I have my jammies on and am in my chair. Yes some laundry I am still washing and dinner in the oven, but I am done. The storms are rolling in to our area so I am not going anywhere tonight. Battened down the hatches and ready for the rain. Here it comes...it is pouring rain. My husband got the dogs walked and in before it hit. Thank you. Wow it's pouring. Sun, 19 Apr 2015 17:53:48 EST Work out today :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5913324 Heading to the dump today and counting the loading and unloading of the truck as part of my work out, as in fact it will work me out. Lots of steps lifting and cross training there! <BR> <BR> I will still need steps and a training walk at some point. Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:22:16 EST Added 6 more miles http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5913028 I wonder if my difficulty with getting my miles this month is I have let it turn in to something I think I am doing rather than what God has planned for me. Today's miles were not as hard because of some thoughts I had during them. <BR> <BR> I don't think it hurts to have goals don't get me wrong but it seems the miles are harder to get when its become about me doing it and a competition. That's now what it has been until, well, Ive noticed it this month. It's become less about God's Gr... Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:42:06 EST 35 miles for month http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5912583 OK, maybe this sounds good but it's 1/2 way through the month and I should be at 50 miles for the month. Work, more hours, less time for me, more stress, less running, less spiritual runs, more hard runs just trying to get it done. Time to make some changes. I am accepting their is not likely a way I will meet 100 miles for the month so I am glad I have extra miles from the previous months. I will do my best but will need these miles to keep my average going into month four. Bummer <BR> ... Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:01:11 EST Yes, it did pass and thank you for positive thoughts and prayers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5911650 The message yesterday first thing was not serious and could have waited. This foster mom simply knows me from another venue and knows how to reach me. We have communicated through message about the other group. I have a child I work with in her home not my child (brain was not working clearly about how to say this yesterday). It was important and I want her to have support but not be on call 24 hours a day. I will talk to her but rather do it face to face. I have to have my off button t... Wed, 15 Apr 2015 08:13:36 EST Why I don't give out my number! Now they message me on facebook! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5911029 Ok, this morning I have been messaged already by a foster parent on FACEBOOK. She is a leader in an adoption group I do. Now she has one of my kids in her home...ugh. I have had several messages from her to call after hours and early morning about things since. I don't like it...I will have to handle it...I don't want to tick her off as she is also someone I have heard badmouth others...! I became stressed already this morning and it's two hours early for work stress and I really wasn't... Tue, 14 Apr 2015 08:32:14 EST Busy week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5910364 I am off and going early this morning. Thankfully this office closes at 4:30 pm forcing me to leave by 4 pm each day. I however have booked every hour even lunch! That is NOT GOOD. My week looks this way Monday thru Wed. Thursday I get lunch. Now that's not to say I don't eat. I take food that doesn't need heated. Eat a 1/2 sandwich at 12 before that session and 1/2 after. I eat the fruit mid afternoon and peanut butter crackers mid morning. But I don't get a break really nor do I g... Mon, 13 Apr 2015 08:17:15 EST Lily Grace Fish Fry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5909818 Lily Grace is my forever 3 year old great niece who died 3 years ago. It seems like yesterday this baby girl fell into a swimming pool and after 4 days in the hospital passed away. She saved the lives of 8 other people that day. Sadly one of them who got her kidney passed just this last month. I pray they joined one another in heaven. <BR> <BR> Today is the annual Lily Grace Fish Fry. There are many events that fund a scholarship in her name. The money is given to local high school st...
