Day 2 training for 5k
Today I felt a cold coming on ... Dh has sinus infection so suspect I caught a bug from him. So, I was really dragging. I got out for a walk which gave me much more energy. I will be back at my walk/jog tomorrow. Little by little we can do g... Read more
Day 1 on way to 5k
Hit all my nutrient ranges. Walked/jogged 40 minutes on treadmill for a little over 2 miles. Won't win any trophies with this, but not having been able to run for about 25 years made this special. Before ms messed with my body and mind I love... Read more
5K or Bust!
I registered with my 9 year old grandon for my first 5K in many years. He just beat out all the kids in his class in the mile a couple of days ago. He ran an amazing 6:45. Reminds me so much of his mom. She ran, and won, her first 5k at his... Read more
Tomorrow I will begin calorie cycling. I've not done this before so am eager to see if this body will be fooled by it. Sounds like others have found success with this. Not sure how long I ought to cycle...? hope everyone has a great weekend!... Read more
Junk food days...
Just returned from nine day road trip with son's family which includes a very stubborn, yet overwhelmingly adorable, 15 month old daughter and an often times nearly impossible almost 4 year old daughter. Then we combined a total of 9 hikes, an ... Read more
Summer is flying and so am I
Today's adventure with my two gandsons was 36 holes of miniature golf. I hadn't played in years and it was their first time at 7 and 9. It was a hot, hot day, but we really had a lot of fun. This whole summer has been filled with adventures w... Read more
Slow, but steady
I get so discouraged when I read about those amazing Sparks losing lots of weight in some pretty amazingly 'speedy' ways. My own progress has been really slow. However, when I look back I see there has actually been progress. I can exercise l... Read more
Elliptical success and challenge
It was too hot to exercise outdoors yesterday so I hit the gym, did some weights and finally succeeded in going an hour on the elliptical. Now, I hope to replicate that often and set it for a more challenging setting. We'll see how it goes ove... Read more
A new interim goal
Dr. Fuhrman helped me budge a little from a long standing plateau. But, then I've been stuck again since I quit that little challenge. In three weeks our son's family will be with us and we will do a road trip as a part of their visit. While ... Read more
A few changes to fall off the plateau
So, for 4 days I've now been following (pretty well) the 90/10% "crash" diet recently featured on Dr. Oz show. To eat only about 150 calories of fats, meats and dairy, plus no sugar is a definite challenge. However, focussing on fruits, veggi... Read more
90/10 Eating Plan Trial
I'm trying something new to me...Dr. Joel Fuhrman's 90/10 plan recently featured by Dr. Oz. The testimonies ... Read more
Between now and July 4!
I've been on a bit of a weight plateau recently and am ready to find my way to another stair step on my way down this journey. ... Read more
Lots of steps, a little progress
I've managed t keep up pretty well on my walking and other exercise lately. Yesterday I worked on hula hoop for awhile and did a bunch of squats while watching a health program. Then I walked out the door to handle some errands in the area. I... Read more
Walk, walk and walk again...
Yesterday, I logged nearly 15,000 steps at our air show. I was pleasantly surprised I could do that since I had walked quite a bit the day before, too. So, I was even more gratified when I walked with my dh today. I never walk so many days in... Read more
