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
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!

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

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.

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

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
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
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
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
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
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
