5k Tomorrow

Friday, September 21, 2012      4 comments

Some combination of walking and jogging will get me to the finish. This will be my first race ever. Even when I was able to run before ms stole so many things, I never ran a race. My 9 y.o. gs is also in this event. He will have a long wait ... Read more

One week to 5k

Saturday, September 15, 2012      2 comments

I had a down day today after a too-busy week that ended with dh needing some surgery yesterday. He's doing fine, but I am really dragging. So, gave myself a bit of time to regroup and will hit the trail and gym again tomorrow afternoon. I thi... Read more

Day 3 training for 5k

Wednesday, September 12, 2012      2 comments

A better night of sleep, a healthy breakfast and mid-morning snack, chugged some water... Laced up my running shoes and headed out the door and up the canyon. I jogged and walked for 90 minutes. ... Abit more than a 5k! Hooray. I will go back... Read more

Day 2 training for 5k

Tuesday, September 11, 2012      2 comments

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

Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

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!

Sunday, September 09, 2012      4 comments

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

Calorie Cycling

Thursday, September 06, 2012      3 comments

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

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

Wednesday, August 01, 2012      2 comments

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

Monday, July 30, 2012      3 comments

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

Monday, July 30, 2012      4 comments

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

Saturday, July 28, 2012      1 comments

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

Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

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
