The scale is going the wrong way . . .
I gained a lb. and I must say I'm a little disappointed :(
Except for Saturday & Sunday, I stayed within my PP daily target and didn't even come close to using up all of my earned activity points. I use my activity points first and try not... Read more
No exercise this weekend and oh yeah,
I didn't track either! It was kind of a strange weekend. I thought I would get in plenty of exercise because the weather was so nice.
I took DD#1 to work and DD#3 to church on Friday evening. DH took DD#2 to Walmart to get some stuff for... Read more
Quite the Walk!
Even though I hurt DD#1's feelings the other day about "putting on a few pounds", apparently she agreed that she needs to exercise. She told DH she wanted to run on Thursday (mainly because it was such a beautiful day). As I mentioned before, ... Read more
Gained 1/2 lb - could it be Karma?!
For hurting my daughter's feelings about "putting on a few pounds" or could be the peanut butter eggs?! Or maybe it's just a slight fluctuation with the scale. I did go over my daily points on Sunday, but "earned" enough activity points for th... Read more
I hurt my daughter's feelings this morning!
I have 3 daughters (17, 14 & 12) and one of the many things I worry about is their self esteem and body image, but at the same time want them to be aware of healthy eating habits, exercise, etc. It's a fine line, especially with teenage girls.

I was doing so good this weekend, until . .
DH brought out the Reece's peanut butter eggs! They are my absolute "downfall"! I can pass up a regular peanut butter cup (although I do love them!), but there's something about the egg!
Anyway, I had a really good week so far with exerci... Read more
A little, little loss . . .
is better than gaining! I lost .2 lbs. this week. I figured these last 6 lbs. would come off slow and I'm ok with that. As I mentioned in a previous blog, 2 years ago loosing the last 5 lbs. to get to my Weight Watchers goal took over 8 weeks... Read more
Weekend of no exercise . . .
unless you count cleaning, driving and shopping!
I had plans to run on Friday with DD#2 after dropping DD#1 off at work. She wasn't in the "mood" and I had to get DD#3 fed and ready for her cookie booth that night. DH came home in time to... Read more
Although I'm pretty pleased with the results on the scale lately, there are a couple of NSV worth mentioning. Actually 3!
First of all, I ran 2 miles straight in about 24 mins. on Wednesday. I didn't have my stopwatch, so I'm not sure o... Read more
2 years ago (again!)
I lost a pound this week! I was hoping for a little more since I had a .8 gain last week, but I'll take it!
I was looking at my Weight Watcher trackers from 2 years ago (when I lost over 40 lbs.) and I noticed that in February of 2011 I... Read more
The results are in . . .
and I came in 263rd out of 452 people at the 5K on Sunday. 12th out of 26 in my age group. Not stellar, but that's ok. DD#2 came in 94th out of 452 people and 2nd in her age group! A guy in her grade came in 3rd overall!
I really enjo... Read more
First 5K of the Year
I've been trying to get back to "5K form" since Spring of last year. I started a program last Spring to increase my 5K speed. It was a really hard program and by the time the heat of Summer came along, I was king of "over it". I continued to ... Read more
I just got an e-mail that the 5K I'm supposed to run tomorrow morning has been postponed until 2 pm on Sunday. The race location is at a local park and partially on a greenway that is mostly wetlands. Apparently the county closed the greenway ... Read more
Didn't run yesterday . .
DD#2 had a lot of homework and I had to take DD#3 to Girls Scouts and DD#1 to work to pick something up she left there Wednesday night that she needed for homework. By the time I got home, DH was home, but he was too tired to run. We had a lon... Read more
Gained a little :(
I gained .8 - I'm a little disappointed, but I did have a long weekend and some bad choices. I'm back at it with the tracking, so no worries!
Since I signed up for my first 5K race since May of last year, I decided yesterday to try running... Read more
