I had a protein bar for lunch - oh yes she did!
First, thank you for all your kind comments on yesterday's blog. I'm trying to get back to everyone individually, but if you don't hear from me it's probably a senior moment.
I think I look good in the bikini - sucking that stomach into the... Read more
Photo shoot -- need my peeps' input
Altho the photos are so bad not sure if you'll be able to give me an opinion. Was feeling very tired & out of sorts & decided to do some retail therapy after grocery shopping & a trip to the library.
I bought some of these thinner hangers ... Read more
Hits & misses
Wanted to share some of the food I'm enjoying lately - and one bomb.
First, there's the banana soft serve - thus is not new, but it might be new to you. Peel a very ripe banana & then freeze it 24 hrs. Put it in a powerful blender, add a sp... Read more
More running thoughts
Friday I read a blog I really wanted to comment on, but yesterday's blog got so long I decided to wait a day. Someone had made a comment that if you couldn't run a HM in under 2 1/2 hrs you should stick to shorter races until you're faster - or ... Read more
I need a new gear! (10k race report - long)
So, remember last week when I signed up for a group run at the location of today's race, but parked in the wrong lot & went the wrong way & never met up with the group?
Today was almost a repeat! Parked in the wrong lot in what I thought wa... Read more
It isn't all about the dress
I am a girly-girl. Always have been. Yet I don't get the hoopla about "the" wedding - didn't about Diana's, either. I haven't seen the news or the dress yet, tho obviously I will before day's end.
And I didn't grow up planning my wedding. I... Read more
Nut, what nut?
Nope, I haven't fallen into a can of nuts. I'll get to the point after sharing the funny dog story that sparked this blog.
When we lived in TX we had 2 oak trees - one in the front, a live oak, and a red oak we foolishly planted in the back... Read more
A sensory feast
That was my run just 2 short hours ago. You'd never know it to look at the grayness otside now! Maybe today will be a repeat of yesterday - cloudy in the morning, clearing up into the most gorgeous afternoon.
It rained overnight, but nothin... Read more
The devil didn't win yesterday, but neither did the angel. I'd call it a draw. I did not have dessert for dinner (instead I had breakfast for dinner), but I also didn't have any veggies yesterday. Nada, zero, zilch.
Extremely unusual for me... Read more
Who will I listen to?
I'm having one of those angel vs devil days. Thinking about a brownie for dinner cause Passover is over and I need something other than brown rice & matzo.
Then my head tells me I have a race this weekend, that I'm an athlete (snort!) and I... Read more
The solo group run
I already ran more than I'd planned to this week, but when someone posted a group run at the area I'll be racing at next week - where I've never been - even tho they posted for 6 miles & I know they're faster runners than me - I signed up.

Tuning into my body
It really amazes me sometimes that I can feel the difference in a couple of pounds on my body - even see the difference. I think this is one tool you miss when you weigh yourself every day - the scale can become a crutch, just as music can becom... Read more
Freebies & a discount
I didn't really have much to say today, but wanted to share some recent freebies I got. Now, keep in mind that these people WILL try to sell you something health-related & if you're weak over thatvkind of stuff like I am, you might want to stay ... Read more
That's me, listening to my body. Today ST was on the menu, only I've been working out pretty hard & I knew that after last night's speed session at the track, my legs were tired (not to mention running 3 days in a row which I normally don't do) ... Read more
Thinking outside the box
That's what you have to do during Passover. That's what you have to do to change your habits. Do, or die - sometimes literally. They don't necessarily have to be big changes - in fact, small swaps are easier to maintain & can be building blocks.... Read more
