Found a Race!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      2 comments

Woot! Signed up for a Thanksgiving morning 8K in my town. Husband is going to do it with me. It's only the second year for this race. Previously, the Turkey Trot in our area was a week before Thanksgiving, which was really handy for me because w... Read more

I Have Gained!

Tuesday, October 21, 2014      1 comments

Yup. Very close to the weight I was when I started Weight Watchers oh those many years ago. I can't decide whether to be dismayed by my scale number or impressed by how well I can run at this weight. I am impressed. But I want the weight of... Read more

Turned off my electronics last night 9 hours before my wake up time. My husband remarked how I woke up with a smile! Getting more sleep is helping. Today I walked 3.11 miles outside on hills and did 30 minutes yoga. The walk was wonder... Read more

Cinco de Mayo

Monday, May 05, 2014      1 comments

I met my goal last night of turning off electronics 9 hours before my wake up time and doing my bedtime routine. FitBit says I slept for 7:35 hours. I did feel better when I woke up this morning (with no alarm!). Also met my goal yesterda... Read more

Successes and misses this week! Let's start with misses. Goal: Fruit 7 days. Close one. Ate fruit 6 days. Goal: Track EVERYTHING 7 days. I tracked everything 4 days. I did track all days, but 3 days I didn't track it all. Succe... Read more

You Play, You Pay

Saturday, May 03, 2014      1 comments

Whew! I had a wonderful time Thursday night going out with my hubby to dinner, to see a movie, and then a music show that we happened to hear while walking back to the car. But I paid for it yesterday! The reason people my age don't g... Read more

Missed Some Goals Yesterday

Friday, May 02, 2014      0 comments

Last night my husband and I planned to go see a movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was excellent. He invited me to dinner beforehand, and I went. And didn't track! And went over calories for sure. Plus I forgot to eat a fruit. ... Read more

I Really Like This Book

Thursday, May 01, 2014      1 comments

I'm not into the quick fix ads and magazine articles about "bikini bootcamp". It's all over the place. But I do like this certain book, despite it's advertising claim. "Bikini Bootcamp: Two Weeks to the Ultimate Beach Body" by Melissa Perl... Read more

Yesterday I Was Angry

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday I was angry. My husband's leg was broken in 9 places last year in a martial arts clinic. It took 7 months before he could walk again. During that time, NONE of his instructors asked him about what happened, or offered any help. He... Read more

Energy Plan

Tuesday, April 29, 2014      1 comments

I'm working with the book, "100 Days of Weight Loss" by Linda Spangle. I went back to an earlier blog I wrote while I was making progress. Glad I did! I had figured out then that a good antidote to my usual afternoon bout of sleepiness is t... Read more

New Book I'm Reading

Monday, April 28, 2014      4 comments

"The Elemental Cleanse" by Pamela Quinn. It's only 99 cents on Kindle today. I just started reading it today. I believe it's about getting your entire life in balance, not "cleanse" as in juice fasting or that stuff. It looks like it's abou... Read more

Back To It

Sunday, April 27, 2014      2 comments

My weigh in after being in Hawaii for two weeks and then being sick and laid flat out for two weeks is not good. Plus there was an Easter visit from my parents and I wasn't tracking then, either. Back to it! :) The bummer is that I saw... Read more

I'm Fine Just The Way I Am

Tuesday, April 22, 2014      6 comments

Someone was visiting me this week. This person regained a little weight recently and evidently is focused on everyone else's weight too. All my life, this person has been critical of people with extra weight. It looked to me like she was ob... Read more

Mission 46: Happy List

Thursday, March 13, 2014      1 comments

An aside comment to start: Bathing suit season is almost here. It's even closer for me because I'm going to Hawaii! I found a swim skort that is the best piece of swim wear I've ever owned. It has plenty of coverage but isn't dorky. The fabric i... Read more

Making a Lifestyle, not a Deadline

Tuesday, March 11, 2014      1 comments

Lately I have been switching my focus from a deadline of weight loss to a lifestyle of sustainable habits. For now, that includes a daily walk instead of a run. For one, I still have nagging injuries from winter running and last year's mar... Read more
