Number 7 Here I Come
Friday, June 11, 2010      6 comments

Finished Day 3. Week 6 is over and done. Day 3 wasn't due until tomorrow, but my schedule tomorrow is going to be full and I felt pretty good today. I felt a bit sluggish during the first 5 minutes of the 25 minute run, but after that it sort of... Read more
Whew! Glad That Is Over
Monday, June 07, 2010      5 comments

Week 6 Day 1 done, BUT, that was the hardest session I have had since day 1. The first 5 minute run was a little rough just to get started. I thought the second 8 minute run would never end. The sides of my lower leg were aching. Not shins o... Read more
Need More Consistency
Thursday, June 03, 2010      9 comments

Week 5 Day 2 after not running for seven days. I figured I would have to repeat Day 1, but no, I did just fine. I really have to work on being more consistent and not skipping that many days between runs. I’m still slow, but I’m doing it!!... Read more

It is just after noon and I have already had a fabulous day. I had my three month thyroid blood work check up this morning and all the numbers were good. My thyroid is now within “normal” range so she didn’t want to change the dosage. My chol... Read more

2010 has been a good year already. I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in late February and started on medication. From the beginning, I started to feel better and have more energy. At the end of April, I began the Couch to 5K running program... Read more
Pushing Limits
Friday, May 21, 2010      3 comments

Today was another day of pushing the limits. That makes twice in the last few weeks and I need to do it more often. It is good for me to push my limits and my insecurities. Makes me stronger. Today a friend drove me in his pick up to p... Read more
A Great Mistake
Monday, May 17, 2010      9 comments

I made a mistake. A great mistake. I hopped on the treadmill and put the iPod ear plugs in and chose Robert Ullrey’s podcast. Everything was going okay and I made it through the first three minute run with no problem. I can do this. The nex... Read more

5/15/10 Week 2 Day 2 finished. ((((Looked back in my calendar and it must have been Day 3)))) Not as difficult at day 1 and my breathing and form were pretty good, but I was ready to stop when it was over. I am hoping that day 3 wil... Read more
Run on/Phone Off
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      7 comments

Just finished Week 2 Day 1! It was easy and I was even dancing on the treadmill between runs! Felt really good. To the person who said that the podcasts really help, a big thank you. They do. They keep you up beat and it helps to run to the... Read more

I was frustrated this morning. I got on the treadmill for my C to 5K practice and had two phone calls within 12 minutes. When the second call came, I finally quit. Only got in three of the run sessions. Now I need to figure out when, how to get ... Read more
Vitamin D & Bone Density
Thursday, March 25, 2010      5 comments

After some research, it seems that my increased bone density may have been caused by the increase in Vitamin D all last year. For most of last year, doctors were trying to determine the cause of my skin problems (hives & dermatitis) . At firs... Read more

Laundry is going. Housekeeper is due soon. I need coffee. I need to move today. Exercise and photograph combined. Might make getting out in the cold, grey easier. Maybe not. We'll see.... Read more
Cautiously Optimistic
Monday, March 15, 2010      5 comments

I seem to be sleeping better and longer and feeling more energy. Perhaps the thyroid medicine, the lower carb/higher protein and fat and the extra exercise really will help me lost these unwanted pounds and feel more normal.... Read more
