2011 Dreams and Goals
I'm starting out about where I started out last year, and find myself planning the same resolutions and goals. That is discouraging. So - I'm going to start out with dreams and wishes instead...
For 2011 I wish...

Body For Life Explanation
BFL has 3 components - Strength, Cardio and Nutrition. It is designed as a 12 week program. They do have an official site bodyforlife.com, with a challenge program and a monetary prize. Personally, I bought the b... Read more
Well - if nothing else, this is the first year that my monthly reviews have made it past March! LOL.
Weight: Started the month at 150.6 and ended at 149.4. A few bounces up and down in there, so I'm basically maintaining. But- maintainin... Read more
A brief epiphany
Tried my first continuous run on Saturday - first in a long time anyway. Starting over always makes me frustrated, and run/walk makes me feel like a recovering invalid. It was a gorgeous fall day, crisp and cool but sunny and I was at my favori... Read more
October review - and a New November
Well, it's been an interesting month. After way too much procrastination and denial, I finally trotted off to the doctor. Two weeks of anti-inflammatories and no exercise, and a bunch of blood tests for arthritis, and a hip x-ray. A tentative ... Read more
Sad September review
September has been dominated by a gradually increasing leg injury issue. Somehow, I believe through my strength program, I've injured all the muscles around the major joints on my left side. Running aggravates this injury... Read more
'accidental' 5K Race
I'd signed up for thsi race (Linda Yalem 5K) a few weeks ago, before the ankle/leg issues became acute. Since I'd managed a couple 2-milers without making things worse I decided to go ahead and participate, pick up my shirt, etc., and just jog ... Read more
Another odd month - back on track the first few weeks, then messed up by travel again. Much as I loved the travel to the family reunion and to see DD at college, it certainly does mess up my workouts and especially my eating.
Starting weig... Read more
July 2010 - Getting back on track
The review for July shows me that I'm slowly getting back on track. Travelling the month of June certainly was wonderful, but it has taken me nearly a month to re-establish my routines. A challenge with Lori has helped a lot in terms of accoun... Read more
Emily Rose 5K

Emily Rose 5K - time 34:57
Went up early to register myself and DD for the Emily Rose race in ourlittle town. It's a memorial race, and the young girls died just last year, so there are still a lot of classmates who actuall... Read more
June in Review
Well, I know June isn't quite over yet, but it's been such a different month than usual that I'm going to post now.
June was taken up by my long-planned trip to Europe with my daughter Casey. She'd been studying in Greece for 10 weeks, and at... Read more
May in Review
May was sort of a 'holding steady' month. Ended up pretty much the same weight I started, which means I'll have to tacle weight loss seriously again when I get back from Europe.
Much of May was taken up with fine-tuning plans for the Europ... Read more
Greekfest 5K 5/21/2010
I'd commited to this race to stay in touch with some of the people I'd met at my winter running group. Turned out DH had conflict and was not able to join me after, which was disappointing. And, since I'd run the 10K only 6 days earlier I was ... Read more
Cleveland 10K - Fantastic
Weekend got off to a good start with dinner out on Friday night. Local restaurant - knew lots of people - ended up dancing to the entertainment and getting other people up to dance too.
Slept till the dogs woke us up, leisurely got ready a... Read more
