Vacation, Birthday & 3rd 5K
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
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
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!
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 opened my big mouth & I ran the entire time!
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
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?
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
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
I finished my first 5K on Saturday!!!
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
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
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
Maintenance & C25K Part II
3 weeks of maintenance with WW has been interesting. The first 2 weeks, I lost another 2lbs. At weigh in last night, I gained 1 lb. This still leave me below my goal weight - so I'm o.k. with it. I don't, however, want to go over my goal we... Read more
Maintenance & C25K
I reached my goal on 3/31. The first week of maintenance I lost .8 lbs. WI is tonight, so we'll see. With WW, you're supposed to add 5 P+ for maintenance. I was a little hesitant to do that right away, so I've been slowly adding them in. Wh... Read more
I Did It!
Finally! I reached my Goal! After 6+ months, I reached my Weight Watchers goal! I lost 40.6 lbs. I get a little surprised even now that I actually had to loose that much just to get comfortably within my healthy range.
I now have 6 w... Read more
