Recognition Part II

Monday, August 22, 2011      0 comments

I blogged last week about recognition (or being recognized while running on the trail and being complimented) being a motivator for me. Well I decided to get up Saturday morning to run (I'll spare you further whining about the heat & humid... Read more

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Wednesday, August 17, 2011      1 comments

We got Netflix back in June and since we don't have cable, I've been "catching up" on some shows that are on cable. I seem to have an obsession with weight loss shows. I watched the first season of Heavy & Ruby and last night I watched Fat, Si... Read more

I've been struggling with my running since mid-July. I know I've complained about the heat and humidity and trying to find a good time to run (excuses I know). My last 5K on 7/30 was less than stellar, but I finished and I wasn't last (far fro... Read more

Vacation, Birthday & 3rd 5K

Monday, August 08, 2011      2 comments

I just returned from vacation on Saturday. A week at Myrtle Beach! I mentioned in my last blog how I was looking forward to running on the beach. Well, I didn't exactly run, but I did walk a lot every day. We stayed at a resort that was real... Read more

Worried about 5K

Friday, July 29, 2011      4 comments

I'm a little concerned about my 5K tomorrow. I haven't been running this week. Only one day. I did bike a few times with my daughters, but they were short trips. As I'm sure everyone is experiencing - it's hot & humid!!! It's really hard to... Read more

I conquered

the dreaded "second time around hill"!!! Which comes back around after about mile 2 in my 3.1 mile run. In the past, I would have to walk up that hill. The past 3 times, I've trudged up the hill without stopping. I'm not sure if I would actual... Read more

Oh the humidity!

Monday, July 11, 2011      5 comments

North Georgia has been experiencing major heat & humidity. Yes, it's July and it's always hot in July, but we've been having 90+ since late May. I started a running program back in April when it was a nice, pleasant (70+/-), even at 6:00 p.m. ... Read more

I went to a fundraising meeting at our church for our Middle & High School youth programs. We have a fall festival in October and the new MS youth minister wants to make it bigger & better. The new priest doesn't want the Haunted Barn which re... Read more

Second 5K

Well we completed our second 5K on Saturday. This was a small race with only about 185 people and some of those did the 10K. I improved my time by over a minute! I completed it in 36:29! My sister finished in 33+ - she was #1 in our division... Read more

Why Isn't this Getting Easier?

Wednesday, June 15, 2011      0 comments

My sister and I asked ourselves that question last night after we ran our 3.1 miles. Keep in mind, it was my best time ever! We ran our route a little differently and I reached my nemesis the "second time around hill" a little later in the run... Read more

Another 5K

Friday, June 10, 2011      3 comments

My 15 yr. old DD was not happy with her time at our 5K on 6/4 (the first for both of us). She said she "choked". So, we registered for one on 6/18, so now I have my motivation at least for a couple more weeks! Been going to the park where we ... Read more

After 9 weeks of "training" with a C25K program at our local park, Saturday was race day! I finished my first 5K in 37:37. I was pretty pleased with the time. Running the past couple of weeks has been very hard. North Ga. is in the middle of... Read more

Lifetime & A Mile!

Last night I made Lifetime @ Weight Watchers. I maintained my goal for 6 weeks and am now considered a Lifetime member. I actually stayed 1 lb. below my goal, so I was happy about that after my out-of-town/Mother's Day food fest! 6 weeks of m... Read more

Out of Town & Mother's Day

Monday, May 09, 2011      0 comments

Wednesday is my 6th week of maintenance with WW. I was hoping that I would be within my goal and will become a Lifetimer. I'm still hoping, but a little concerned. I was out of town last Wed - Fri. at a training seminar for work. I made some... Read more

Maintenance & C25K Part III

Thursday, April 28, 2011      0 comments

I just weighed in last night for my 4th week of maintenance with WW. I stayed the same and am still 1 lb. below my goal weight, so I'm good. 2 more weeks and I'll be a Lifetimer! I must admit, it was a little disappointing to not loose, even ... Read more
