W5/D3 of C2-5K - done!
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
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
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
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
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
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
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?
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
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
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
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 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
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
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.
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
