W5/D3 of C2-5K - done!

Wednesday, March 10, 2010      4 comments

Today was the *dreaded* 20-minute run. I felt like it was easier than the start of the week (series of 5-min runs one day, 8-min runs the other). Running is always hard at the start - I've always said that the first 3 minutes are the hardest par... Read more

Half-marathon in October

Saturday, March 06, 2010      6 comments

For years and years I have wanted to run a 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles). The most I've run has been a 10-mile race. I was so slow (I'm not kidding myself, I'll be slow in the 1/2, too) that my husband re-ran the race to find me bc I was taking so l... Read more

February 2010 wrap-up

Friday, March 05, 2010      4 comments

Well, Feb was not as fun/exciting/successful as January. Weight? The same as Feb. 1. The good is that I have not gained, the bad is that I have not lost. Running? When I wrote the January wrap-up, I was on wk 4 of c2-5k. Now, 4-5 weeks late... Read more

Life is getting in the way of life

Saturday, February 27, 2010      5 comments

I'm getting ready to move to a different state. My husband is currently in our new location, so I am taking care of our son by myself and trying to pack up a house I've lived in for 5 years. Unfortunately, that leaves less time for me. I have fo... Read more

Vacation time...

Tuesday, February 09, 2010      2 comments

Tomorrow, I will leave for 5 days. I'm looking forward to this trip, but am worried about having to eat in restaurants, not being motivated to run, and generally getting "off track." Fortunately, I will have access to an amazing brand spanking n... Read more

January 2010 wrap-up

Sunday, January 31, 2010      6 comments

I got an account on SP back in July 2009. I won't say I "started" back then, since I didn't do much with it. In September, I started. I was super motivated. Then, I got pregnant. At the end of November, I lost the baby. Between September and Nov... Read more

Meal plans?

Saturday, January 30, 2010      1 comments

I've never followed the SP meal plans. My husband is currently working out of town for a few months, so I'm thinking this might be a good time to try using them. I'm curious if most people on here do use them...? Generally, I plan my dinne... Read more

Can you find happiness in a bed that is made?

Sunday, January 24, 2010      5 comments

Last week, the news had a segment on how to be happy. When the interview was just ending, the reporter asked, "What is the single best tip you have for being happy?" The woman said (although she admitted it did not work for her) that she intervi... Read more

Week recap!

Saturday, January 23, 2010      3 comments

So, I am done with the hospital stay! Whoo hoo! For the last day, I had to wait around until noon for them to remove the electrodes. They used acetone and oil. I seriously had dreds when they were done. Yuck. The tech gave me a handful of ... Read more

Day 4 - last full day

Friday, January 22, 2010      4 comments

I'm writing this the morning of Day 5. I get to go home at noon today and cannot wait. I've been in hospitals a few times and I've never been this excited to leave. I'm upset that they have not gotten good data - at least, not that I am aw... Read more

My uneventful Day 3

Thursday, January 21, 2010      4 comments

With this observation, I would like my days to be more eventful. They refer to seizures as "events" and, ideally, I need to have at least 2 events that are big enough for the doctors to learn from. That's not happening. I've had enough little on... Read more

Day 2

Wednesday, January 20, 2010      4 comments

Day 2 was rough. I won't lie. I was bored out of my skin. Then, I started getting a migraine around 10pm. They refused to give me medication for it (thinking that the migraine might bring on a seizure). Because I had not had a seizure yet,... Read more

Recap of Day 1

Tuesday, January 19, 2010      2 comments

I survived yesterday - the first day of my hospital stay. It's just as boring as I expected. Even though I brought some clothes from home, I couldn't wear any of them bc of the wires. So, I have a fashionable 2-gown thing going on and slipper so... Read more

My week ahead

Sunday, January 17, 2010      2 comments

Tomorrow, I will go into the hospital for 5 days. I'm not sick, I'm not having surgery - I'm just being "observed." I have a form of epilepsy (caused by a brain tumor), so the doctors will take me off of my medication and watch for my seizures. ... Read more

C25K - week 2 complete ... and, other good stuff.

Friday, January 15, 2010      2 comments

I finished week 2 of c2-5k, finally. I actually finished it yesterday, but wanted to re-run day 3 (yesterday wasn't a stellar day on the treadmill). I'm excited to move on to week 3. Today was also a great day in other respects: * My... Read more
