Sunday, July 07, 2013      9 comments

Blah... that's how I feel most of the time this week. My the muscles in my legs and glutes hurt constantly, even when lying down, and the death of my son-in-law's father has hit me harder than I expected. I was really fond of that man.... Read more

Friday, June 28, 2013      8 comments

There is a Mennonite community not too far from my home where I love to go whenever I can. Secretly, I wish I could live there, away from a lot of people, the internet, radios, and television. The Mennonites only get news of what is happening in... Read more

I'm such a loser! Thanks to the LORD! HE is making me stronger. This is more of a note to self than anything else. I need to remember this, but at the same time, I want to give Him public praise for helping me to overcome things I neve... Read more

Exhausted, but some good things are going on, too.

Tuesday, June 25, 2013      3 comments

I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my body. Today I went out for my walk/run and I felt depleted from the very beginning. I made the entire 3.4 miles, with some running, but I was very slow...about 20 min/mile...and I had to stop alo... Read more

Yipee! It's working!

Monday, June 24, 2013      9 comments

I have been jogging (which I like to call running) in intervals during my walks each day and keeping a log of my mileage, time, and pace. This morning I discovered that I improved my minutes per mile over last Wednesday by nearly 2 minutes!... Read more

taking a moment to reflect

Sunday, June 23, 2013      4 comments

I have gotten off track since I went out of town for my grandson's birth. Why? I need to take time to reflect on how I got here, why I came to SparkPeople in the first place, and what it is that I say to myself that makes it "ok" to ac... Read more

Sunday, June 23, 2013      11 comments

Yesterday I had to go to Walmart to pick up something. On the way out of the store, as I was walking to my car, I suddenly just wanted to run to my car, but since I'm pretty sure I look really bad when I run, I held myself back and just walke... Read more

I've got to figure out a better way

Wednesday, June 19, 2013      4 comments

The sun made me sick again today. I went out for my walk/run about 6:50 this morning. The rest of the day has been spent in bed with chills, body aches, burning eyes, and extreme fatigue. I think it is time to take the walk to the gym and... Read more

I'm home and beginning again

Wednesday, June 19, 2013      6 comments

Hey, hey, hey!!! I'm back and when I got on the scale this morning, I weighed 202.8. I guess the strange deal with the scale was that it said I had lost weight a couple of weeks ago when I actually hadn't. I don't know...but, I'm back from the... Read more
