I ran with my sister last night and because my DH has a stomach virus (icky) and wasn't going with us, we went to the "hilly" trail. I usually can't run on Tuesdays because I have Girl Scouts with DD #3, but we didn't have a meeting last night.... Read more

I became a Lifetimer member at Weight Watchers the end of May. I've been at or below my goal since March. I share the same concerns about maintenance and keeping it off as a lot of people. I believe the percentage of people that "keep it off"... Read more

The last couple of weeks have been weather paradise in North Georgia. We broke a record this year with over 90 days of temperatures 90+. I know that's nothing compared to Texas, but this started in early May and we had a miserable summer. ... Read more
My Mom is Awesome!

My Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer back in December. Her first concern was for her 3 daughters and 5 granddaughters and their chances of getting breast cancer. My Mom had just turned 80, so the doctor told her that getting breast cancer s... Read more

We finally got rain in N. Georgia on Labor Day (from Tropical Storm Lee) and apparently some kind of cold front came in. We really needed the rain, but I feel so bad for the people that got hit with tornadoes & all the damage (1 county west of ... Read more
Back to Square One? Not Quite

As I mentioned, I'm trying to get my running "mojo" back. I decided to dust off my sheets from my running class that I completed back in June and try to build back up some endurance. The last couple of weeks I have been struggling big time to ... Read more
How did this happen?!

Somehow I've lost my run "mojo". The last time I ran the entire 3.1 miles (without coming to a "walk") was a week and a half ago. I ran on a Saturday morning and was able to run (but it was a major struggle!). Last week I had some challenges,... Read more

We had some family come in from PA over the weekend and my dad and I took my aunt & cousin to a State park yesterday. My aunt wanted to see the waterfall, so I told her we could walk the trail (which is very steep and has 125 steps to climb ju... Read more
Secret to my success - maintenance

I went to weigh in last night @ WW. I've been so busy in August that this is the first time I've been able to go. I reached my goal in March and made Lifetimer in May. With WW you have to weigh in at least once a month and can be 2 lbs. +/- y... Read more
Resentment + Exercise + Kids = Bad Mommy

One of the main reasons I finally reached my weight loss goal and am constantly working on my "stay fit" goal is my children. I have 3 girls (10, 13, 15) and I want to be fit for them and also be a good role model. My husband comes from a fami... Read more
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

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

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
