5k! I DID IT!

Saturday, February 18, 2012      13 comments

I finally did it. I jogged my first 5k ever! I'm so proud of myself. I have been doing the Rookie Run 5k Your Way program of Spark People. That was such a help to have a plan each week on what I needed to do. I wasn't so sure how I'... Read more

Dang blasted cold!

Friday, February 17, 2012      1 comments

Couldn't breath last night so I remembered a Spark friend talked about a Neti pot (which I have). So I got up and prepared it. Thought it would flush stuff out. Well it only helps if your nasal cavities are totally swollen shut. Gack, gag! ... Read more

Keeping it going

Thursday, February 16, 2012      4 comments

I came home yesterday and told the family to fend for themselves. I was going to bed for a couple of hours. I got up just before the alarm I'd set was to go off, got my bag & went to the gym. DH wasn't going out. He was still suffering fr... Read more

Sinus pain

The "man cold" has struck at my home. I'm starting to feel some effects. My sinuses are killing me but I can't slow down. The world will end if I do. emoticonRead more

Great checkup

Dental checkup was good. It's a good thing I'm not running outside. I'd blind motorists with my dazzling smile. emoticonRead more

The race

Monday, February 13, 2012      1 comments

This morning as I was coming into work I saw the start/finish sign up for the Winterman races. They'll be taking place on Feb. 19. Yeah, I don't think I'll be running outside in February for my first race. Read more

Week 8

Sunday, February 12, 2012      1 comments

Started week 8 of the Rookie Run 5k Your Way program today. Walked/ran 4.45 km in 40 minutes. That first big hill of the rolling hill program on the treadmill is still killer. I have to slow my speed down. But I want to continue to stead... Read more

Bee-a-u-tea-full DAY!

Saturday, February 11, 2012      1 comments

Went out early to ride and then headed to the gym to finish off W7D3 of the Rookie Run 5k program. Felt really good and jogged the last nine minutes straight instead of doing the last walking break. Went teeny bit faster too and made 3.85 ... Read more

Arrows in my quiver

Friday, February 10, 2012      2 comments

When I boarded at a busy barn I couldn't always do what I wanted with my horse. Sometimes it was very busy so I had to have a plan A, plan B, plan C. Sometimes my horse got up on the wrong side of the pasture or was feeling super frisky so... Read more

Thought of ranting but I don't have anything to rant about. emoticon... Read more

Week 7, Day 2 - Yoda

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      2 comments

Gotta get working on supper the second I whip off the boots & coat when I get home tonight. I want to leave early for the gym to get enough time for my walk/jog of the Rookie Run 5k Your Way program. Yoga is at 7 and I don't like being rushed ... Read more

Week 7 - Rookie Run 5k Your Way

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      2 comments

I did day 1 of week 7 last night! Whew! I'd say "no sweat" but there was sweat. I don't know if there was less because I seemed to be under the fan at the gym & I turned on the fan for the treadmill too. I felt like I was floating a few ... Read more

Chocolate hoarder

Monday, February 06, 2012      3 comments

My Hersey Dark Chocolate Mint kisses have been untouched since I took 9 on Christmas Day and the 1 my DH admitted to taking before I whisked them off to the office. 210 calories for 9! So I'm hoarding them. Extreme rationing. Then there... Read more

Apple butter?

Sunday, February 05, 2012      0 comments

It's true.... 3 grocery stores and no one sells apple butter. Is it an American thing? Can you buy it or will I have to make it? Saw some recipes and I don't know. I'd like to buy a small jar to try it. So I'll eat the Bosc pear wit... Read more

Went overboard at dinner. Antijitos, Four cheese spinach dip & bread, buffalo chicken sandwich, pickle & two Coronas. Ouf! Way, way over everything. I'll be sated for a while. Read more
