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

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

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

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

Fit at 51!

Friday, February 03, 2012      0 comments

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

Race in February and 1 out of 3!

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!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      0 comments

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
