I am the co-leader for DD#3's Girl Scout troop (she is 11) and last night we had a Valentine Party. As I've mentioned in the past, I am 51 and had my 3 daughters in my mid-late 30's. My main reason for finally loosing my "baby" weight and get... Read more
First Race of the Year
Monday, February 13, 2012      1 comments

I had the flu last week and was not able to run at all until a short run on Friday before my race on Saturday. I decided to do the hill that was part of the course on Saturday. I felt o.k., just a little out of breath early. N. Ga. has b... Read more

Well I realized why my run was so crappy on Sunday. I couldn't figure out how I could do so well on Friday and not even be able to finish on Sunday and then be so sore. Turns out I caught some kind of flu. By Sunday night I was wrapped in a b... Read more
Weekend Update

I had a really good run on Friday, probably my best on the hilly course. It was a great evening, about 60 degrees and breezy. My sister ran with me. She did the C25K program with me, but has not kept up as much with her running. She did pret... Read more
Fit at 51!

My day got a little messed up yesterday. My goal was to run right after work and make stir fry. Simple right?! Anyway, DD#2 had to stay after school to turn in her basketball uniform and had to be picked up @ 5:30. I figured I could start th... Read more
Wonky Scale!
Thursday, February 02, 2012      2 comments

I've been playing a game with my scale until it reads the weight I want! I know we all have scale stories, but I got on the scale Monday and weighed and didn't like what I saw. Went to the bathroom (I had to, I promise) and weighed again. The... Read more

I decided to sign up for a 5K on 2/11 - The Great Valentine's Race (the shirt looks cute!). My goal is to improve my race time to under 36 min. by June (the anniversary of the end of my C25K and my first race). I've been increasing my runs to ... Read more
Positive January so Far!

Monday I took a day off after my 5+ mile run on Sunday (it was still raining) and squeezed in a run before DD#3's Girl Scout meeting yesterday. We finally had sunshine yesterday and I didn't want to miss my opportunity since it's going to be ra... Read more
I Ran for Over an Hour Without Stopping!
Monday, January 23, 2012      0 comments

So, I mentioned on Friday that DH wanted to run the entire "leg" of the greenway instead of stopping and turning around to get in about 3+ miles. I was contemplating either running/walking it with him or riding bikes with my girls. I was prett... Read more
Run (and walk) 6.5 miles?!
Friday, January 20, 2012      2 comments

First of all, I had a good run on Wednesday. It was still a little cold (about 40 &windy), but I warmed up pretty quickly. I've pretty much been through all 4 seasons with my running. I started in early April last year with my C25K and kept r... Read more
The Scale is Going the Wrong Way!
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      0 comments

I had great success with the scale last week on my journey back to my goal. I lost 1.2 lbs. of the 6 I needed to loose. This week, not so much. Not only did I gain back the 1.2 lbs., but 2 additional ones. I won't bore you with TMI on TOM (l... Read more
Am I Really Getting Slower?!
Monday, January 16, 2012      1 comments

One of my goals this year is to improve my 5K time in a race. I started the C25K program last April and finished in June. I ran my first 5K in 2011 on 6/4 @ 37:37. My best race time for 2011 was 36:28. My last race in 2011 was 38:31, it was ... Read more
Do You Really Want My Opinion?

My oldest sister (I'm the youngest of 3) is thinking about joining WW with a friend. BTW, she's been talking about it for 6+ months and there's always been an excuse. She's a little taller than me and has never really had a weight problem (tha... Read more
Back on Track!
Tuesday, January 10, 2012      0 comments

Today was my "official" weekly weigh in and I lost 1.2 lbs. I'll take it! Considering I only need to loose 4.8 lbs. to get back to where I want to be (2 lbs. below WW goal), that's huge. All I've done this past week is get my eating back in c... Read more
