Good safety reminder

Wednesday, October 02, 2013      4 comments

The news last night reported a woman that was missing in our area. She had gone out for a walk in the afternoon and never came back. Scary stuff! All night long I couldn't help but wonder what had happened to her and if she was ok. This morning... Read more

Every fall my hubby & I take a long weekend and see the changing colors in the mountains. This years trip proved to be a challenge! If you've been watching the news, then you know that Colorado has seen its share of rain and flooding. Altho... Read more

Taking it for granted

Saturday, June 01, 2013      4 comments

We had an opportunity to stay with some friends from Joplin, MO at their time share in Breckenridge last week. It was a great time of getting to know each other better, seeing the beautiful sights, fishing, shopping and playing games. We really ... Read more

The Side Effects

Wednesday, March 20, 2013      3 comments

This is more for a journal/reminder for me than a blog. It probably won't be too interesting to anyone else. I just wanted to document how I felt during the time the ENT put me on Prednisone. The drug didn't do a thing for me...that I noticed an... Read more

What happened to my normal?!

Wednesday, March 13, 2013      6 comments

I've always been healthy and thankful for the fact that I rarely even get a cold, let alone have to go to the doctor other than an annual visit. The last year or so I've really been working to get in shape, lose weight and eat better to m... Read more

That first mile...

Monday, December 24, 2012      6 comments

I still have a hard time saying I'm a runner. Partly because I don't feel like one. In my head I still have those scoffing thoughts that say..."HA! I'm not a REAL runner!" I don't look like those sleek runners I pass on the trails. ... Read more

Hi, my name is Lois and I'm a chocoholic!

I've failed...I sit here eating this stupid "fun size" Halloween candy and can't stop. "Fun size?" For who?! I'm not having fun! I was hoping I had more self control with this stuff...but once I start, I can't stop. I think I have to get stri... Read more

My Focus

Friday, September 28, 2012      3 comments

It's quiet at the office today so I thought I'd play some music while I work. Years ago I made a mixed CD with various worship and meditative songs. Life can get stressful and chaotic and it's easy to get caught up in worry about the futur... Read more

My DH & I were able to get away this weekend and spent the weekend in Rifle, CO. We've stayed here before and found it's a good central location for lots of activities. Yesterday we took the hike up to Hanging Lake which is just outside of Glenw... Read more

My Everyday, Ordinary Life

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      4 comments

This morning was one of those times when the words hit me right where I am. Thought I'd share them with my SP friends. :) Romans 12:1-2 "So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sle... Read more

It's SO Worth It!

Monday, August 06, 2012      7 comments

This weekend I went to the thrift store to try to find some more clothes that actually fit me. It's not a bad thing when you're down to 3 pair of pants/jeans! The others in my closet were falling off! :) Usually clothes shopping puts me in... Read more

Aimless running

Friday, July 27, 2012      6 comments

I'm trying not to be discouraged with my running, but I keep thinking I should be doing better by now. I don't know how long it takes a person to get used to running, but it feels like I'm not progressing enough. I'm 49 years old, too, so I don'... Read more

Remember where you came from

Monday, May 21, 2012      4 comments

Looking back at my previous blog entries from when I first started the Couch to 5k program, it's encouraging to see the progress I've made. Since mid February I went from running a few minutes at a time, to running for 30 minutes. When I get di... Read more
