Saturday, December 31, 2011      2 comments

There are so many blogs and articles about NY resolutions, tricks to change bad habits and new things to try. But the one thing I'm focusing on isnt new at all, its what I needed to focus on for the last 3 years since I started gaining back a b... Read more

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      1 comments

Thank you to "4A Healthy BMI" for her blog "Making up for lost time". Here is a crucial part of what she said today: "I'm just so grateful to no longer be living in my own personal coffin of flesh at a BMI over 50, with mobility issues alr... Read more

Spring is the right time for running...

Monday, May 02, 2011      3 comments

Wow, its weird how amazing a run in the cool, breezy Spring can feel. I've lived all over the world and run in several different types of "springs" but somehow you appreciate it more in the South, particularly here in NW Florida! Its so nice t... Read more

Feeling so much MUCHER...

Saturday, March 20, 2010      3 comments

I've been reading some of Geneen Roth's works lately, mainly because I read an article in Good Housekeeping by her that stopped me in my well-worn weight loss tracks. I've been dutifully following my SP path, just like I've done with other grou... Read more

Found weekend...

Monday, February 22, 2010      2 comments

Joy...its all around you!

Friday, February 05, 2010      3 comments

Today I swear I was on a roll. The "thinking about stuff" is subsiding and the "doing stuff" is actually kicking in. I'm feeling feelings. My head is so right. Still, I was beginning my 4 mile run and actually wondering how I was going to ge... Read more

Inspiration is all around...

Wednesday, January 20, 2010      1 comments

I've had inspiration from the most unexpected sources - 1. A group run with the local running group last night, 5K, fast and had the hardest time keeping up or going fast. It inspired me to get back to fast - get on the treadmill to see ... Read more

...Stayed neither by snow nor rain nor darkness from my course...

Monday, January 11, 2010      1 comments

It is said that as many days as there are in the whole journey, so many are the men and horses that stand along the road, each horse and man at the interval of a day’s journey; and these are stayed neither by snow nor rain nor heat nor darknes... Read more

Back on Track

Thursday, December 03, 2009      3 comments

Ash Wednesday: Lent a time to Reflect

Wednesday, February 25, 2009      0 comments

I feel hunger pains today, with my modified eating of fasting and abstinence, and this is something that gets my attention. This is the intended effect, as a Catholic to help me remember what this time is all about. How meaningful for me to be... Read more

Me and Tiger Woods...back after 8 months off

Tuesday, February 24, 2009      0 comments

It seems too funny to me to be comparing myself to one of the world's most amazing athletes but when I heard Tiger interviewed today about his comeback, I thought about how its also been 8 months since I moved to Virginia from the safe little co... Read more

Tuesday, October 21, 2008      0 comments

I've decided to start a new "Smile File" for myself in lieu of the recommended "Gratitude Journals". I always had trouble sitting down and writing out 5 things I was grateful for, even though I was always grateful for lots of things. Therefore... Read more
