A funny thing happened on the way to my 5k
Monday, May 23, 2011      10 comments

No, I wasn't racing this weekend. Yesterday was the WW walk-it challenge. There were several group walks - you were supposed to walk 5k. I had every intention of joining a group walk initially, but none of my closer buddies from my group were go... Read more
Happy with my food choices
Sunday, May 22, 2011      8 comments

I have had several occasions to make the wrong choice lately, & I am happy to report that I'm happy with my choices. When I got home friday night I was physically & emotionally drained. I'd planned a salad for dinner, but that takes effort.... Read more

So as I'm considering my eating habits & an overhaul if sorts - AGAIN - guess what arrives in my inbox? www.romanfitnesssystems.

One person's crap is another person's good food
Friday, May 20, 2011      11 comments

Lots of thoughts swirling around, it's just been a busy errand-filled week - always that way before we go away. So one of those thoughts was about being food police. It's such an easy trap to fall into. I read people's blogs, and sometimes ... Read more
Running blog with pics -- no dresses!!!
Tuesday, May 17, 2011      11 comments

When I saw these at DSW online, I just had to have them. Fila Skele-toes. They're a cheaper version of Vibrams, only there's only 4 "toes" -- the little toe & the one next ... Read more
My core mission (and just a couple of photos)
Monday, May 16, 2011      16 comments

Yup, I am working hard on tightening that core. If I'm going out in public in a bikini, I want be all that I can be. BTW, did you hear about the survey saying you shouldn't wear a bikini after 47? And all sorts of other nonsense. So here's ... Read more

This morning I was getting a salad ready for later in the day. Part of that salad was some mint. Much to my surprise, the boys came running, meowing. Then it struck me: catnip is part of the mint family, after all. I'm pretty sure I've used... Read more
DH survived the garage sale
Saturday, May 14, 2011      7 comments

But just barely. Actually, he wasn't too bad until it started to rain at 1:30 - the sale was set to end at 3 & even tho it turned out to be a passing shower, we called it quits at that point. We made a whopping $116 & I told DH you could look at... Read more
What's your truth? My 5 truths
Thursday, May 12, 2011      12 comments

I was really hoping to do a running blog today, but I actually need to run first to write about what I want to write about - and unfortunately I've been sidelined by whatever crud I have right now. I'd hoped to get out for an early morning ... Read more
Accepting ourselves, take II
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      11 comments

Nit too long ago one of my spark buddies blogged about how her husband was enjoying her newfound interest in fashion now that she's at her GW - and how she was sure he'd enjoy seeing her in a bikini, not that that was going to happen. We ar... Read more
Need more input & not *just* clothes this time
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      11 comments

Yes, somehow I ended up at Marshalls yet again. But here's a funny story (tho not so funny at the time!). I tried on a halter dress that looked like it was going to be really cute -- it had these diamond cutouts on the sides with sparkly stuff o... Read more
Stacking the odds in my favor
Monday, May 09, 2011      16 comments

Friday night I got the sad news that my aunt had died. She's my last aunt. She is survived by her husband, my last uncle, but I doubt for long. She was about 90 & I knew she was very ill with pneumonia, so it was not a shock. Sadly my paren... Read more
Trying new things
Saturday, May 07, 2011      8 comments

I'm an adventurous eater - I'll try most anything. So lately I've been trying new things. DH liked the chickpea granola bars & didn't mind the chocolate quinoa protein bars from nomeatathlete.com . I think the quinoa bars a... Read more
Accepting yourself
Friday, May 06, 2011      8 comments

One of my buds made the comment on how she envied my curves, since she's not a curvy girl. It took me a really, really long time to embrace those curves myself. I didn't develop early & I'm not busty, so I didn't get unwanted attention from... Read more
Classic case of overestimating, I guess
Thursday, May 05, 2011      6 comments

Why do people sometimes gain weight while training for a marathon? There are many reasons, but a common one is overestimating how many calories you're burning. Today was not a good WI, which frankly sort of took me by surprise, but even tho... Read more
