The big push adrenaline has worn off.
I did the morning thing today, and am TIRED.
I am still trying to avoid caffeine in the afternoon, but I am lagging something horrible today.
Tonight I am supposed to meet a friend at a small holida... Read more

About an hour later, another coworker brought in chips, salsa, fried chicken and cake. CAKE!

Here I go again...
So, in light of leftover Halloween candy and some junk food from this weekend - I am trying the Spark meal plan.
So far, its a little weird. I am endeavoring to try this for a full week - and see how I feel.
As of now, having a grapef... Read more
It's a New Day!
I did it. I woke up about 40 minutes before my normal alarm time and worked out.
I did not hit the snooze button, I did not dawdle.
I set my workout clothes out the night before, next to the toothbrush. ;-)
I logged on to Fitness Blend... Read more

Hi all! Been focusing on eating well and getting some movement. This week has been not as good - with visiting my Mom In Law last weekend, I started off behind - house needing cleaned, laundry needing doing, and meetings most days!

This time for real
So i have been bad at logging in. I have been working out - now am more focusing on healthy food, in a way I can keep at. Lower carb, but not NO carb. (read: sandwiches are not the norm, nor is cereal or toast for breakfast - many dinners are... Read more
Back to slow
About a year and half (maybe more) I herniated a disc in my lower back. I recouped (after a LONG bed rest) and a bit of medicine, I was back to normal (plus some lbs).
I started back on my program, and slowly started working back toward my... Read more
Run program - week 3 progress
Well, I will hand this to Galloway - you have to pay attention!
I have gotten lost in the seconds breakdown a few times, either running or walking longer then prescribed.
All in all, it seems good - I upped my speed on the long hauls, but pe... Read more
New running program
Just looked into Run Disney – and they Galloway method – which I am planning to start as a new 10K process. I am hoping this will be a good choice, since my new phone does not like the old app I was using.
Anyone tried this already?

Down and out
Whew! Just getting back into it - after some tripping (and not getting to Spark) then my laptop died (still dead, using PC at work), then two and half weeks of pneumonia - I am back. I gained some pounds back (grr) and am hitting the gym again... Read more
Poll - of sorts
I was at the gym last night - getting some weight training in - and was circling, and being circled, by a group - 4 men and a woman - who seemed to be helping/training each other on the machines near me.
Now, I ensure to clean my face and t... Read more
Back in the game
I am back in it!
Last Tuesday I was able to mostly run the group run trail with my group at work - I did it twice - for about 4 miles. (Woo!)
Then Thursday I ran my training - on an incline program (that's new)
And this weekend Hubby ... Read more
So hip is not as bad now - a bit sore, more like a torn muscle I guess.
Ankle is better, perhaps a bit weak, but working without pain.
New pain - both upper thighs - front only - are sore and hurt to use. This is causing problems as I tr... Read more
