Spring Forward

Monday, March 12, 2012      1 comments

Daylight savings time is messing me up. We made sure we set our clocks forward before going to bed Saturday night because we have to teach religious ed @ 8:45 a.m. We were there on time, but some of the teachers were late and everyone was drag... Read more

Improving my 5K

Friday, March 09, 2012      1 comments

I started my intermediate 5K training on Sunday. I hiked on Sunday, ran 30 mins. on Monday & 30 mins. on Tuesday. Yesterday was an "easy" 40 min. run. There's really nothing easy about running for 40 mins., but it actually felt pretty good. ... Read more

Race Results (Not!)

Monday, March 05, 2012      0 comments

I blew off my 5K on Saturday! We had tornado warnings all through the night on Friday (spent a couple of hours in the basement) and when my DH came in from work @ 5:30 a.m., it was still pouring. They said the race would go on rain or shine, b... Read more

New Back to Maintenance Goal

Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

I decided to change the date for my "get back to maintenance" goal (somehow this sounds better than my weight loss goal). Originally I wanted to loose my 6+ lbs. by 3/31. Well since I'm not doing so well and it's already 3/2, that might be a l... Read more

5K Tomorrow!

Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

My 2nd 5k of the year is tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to this one because it starts at the park I usually run. They haven't posted a race route and I'm a little curious because I know it starts at the large pavilion and then ends at on... Read more

Health Risk Assessment

Thursday, March 01, 2012      0 comments

My husband's work has a program for their health coverage that if you (and spouse) take a health assessment, you get $25 off your monthly health care cost (per person). Last year you just had to go online and take the assessment, this year you ... Read more

Weekends are my downfall!

Monday, February 27, 2012      2 comments

I did great last week with my food tracking in my quest to get back to maintenance. And then along came the weekend! Weekends are my downfall. I think it's because I'm not doing my normal routine and I just "let myself go"! Friday's eati... Read more

All Signed Up!

Friday, February 24, 2012      0 comments

I signed up for my 2nd race of the year yesterday. It was the last day to sign up before the cost went up, so that motivated me! The race is on 3/3 - that's only a week away! This is a race I really want to do because the course is the park/gr... Read more

Maintenance Update

Wednesday, February 22, 2012      0 comments

I had a lot of good suggestions yesterday from maintenance experts. A common suggestion is to go back to what works. I've been contemplating going back to WW for the weigh-ins for the accountability, but I decided the first step is to get back... Read more

Maintenance Woes!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012      2 comments

I lost 46 lbs. last year and managed to keep it off for over 8 months. I lost my weight through Weight Watchers. I like their program and found the structure and the weekly weigh-in to work for me. I enjoyed my meetings and have to admit I li... Read more

Motivating Teenagers!

Thursday, February 16, 2012      0 comments

I have 3 daughters - 16, 13 & 11. Each girl has their own personality and it makes for a very lively household! We're very blessed that they're healthy, happy and actually pretty darned smart! The oldest is very artistic and is looking ... Read more

Age is a Number!

Wednesday, February 15, 2012      0 comments

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


Wednesday, February 08, 2012      1 comments

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

Monday, February 06, 2012      0 comments

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
