Not the answer I wanted.

I made the annual trip to the doctor. However, mine was over 18 months ago. I make an appointment and a couple of weeks before it, I'd get a call saying the doctor was going on vacation at that time. I found out why I've been feeling so ti... Read more

Ugh, weather.

Our rainy weather is making it difficult to run. I am using my elliptical which is a good workout. It really makes me sweat and it causes a nice elevated heart rate. I am also focusing on my weight. I think running will be a bit easier if ... Read more

All we can do is try.

I went on my second run in the past three days. It was not easy! First note to self, don't eat pot roast and potatoes an hour before running. Second note to self, it is a good idea to be dropped off miles from home so you can run back. Nothing i... Read more

Selling ourselves short!

I have been in a slump lately. Lots of reasons, but all are causing frustration. The biggest is just not being where I was two years ago athletically and weight wise. At my age a couple of years can make a big difference. However, I have come to... Read more

I agree!

I, like most of you, don't like the use of supplements. It was a moment of weakness and frustration with things not going the way I want. I will NOT take a supplement and just go back to really watching my nutrition and try to increase my exerci... Read more

Less carbs and/or supplements?

Sunday, April 10, 2016      7 comments

I've read a lot and I've been talking to others and many say as we get older we should restrict carbs more. This is a way to offset the "natural weight gain" that comes with perimenopause. What is your opinions? A couple that I know are t... Read more

Sick and sparking.

I never get sick, but I came home early yesterday. I feel like a truck hit me. It will be a struggle to get my 30 minutes of exercise in. I will prevail, though. I am staying within my weight range, but can't seem to get to the lower end.... Read more

Today my daughter is 21 years old. It seems like just yesterday she was a little girl. I blinked and she became a young woman. She'll be graduating from college in 2 months. That is a full year early. I am so proud of her. Not only did she get a... Read more

Incorporate it!

Many people will tell you that they just can't find the time to work out. I used to be one of those people. When people ask me how I fit it all in, I tell them it's simple...I incorporate it! What I mean, is that I find ways to put exercise... Read more

Today was day 501 of exercising 30 minutes, or more. I love this streak and I plan to keep it up! Even on days when it's a "rest day" I still walk at least 40 minutes a day. I never imagined that I'd be one of those "exercise freaks." I us... Read more

Fighting the 5.

Thanks, once again, for all the comments on yesterdays blog!! They really help! Since I stopped running competitively, I have struggled with 5 pounds. It comes off, I eat one late meal, eat out or at the top of my calorie range and it's rig... Read more

When do you throw in the towel and just accept?

Many of you know I was an avid runner for about a year. I did 12 races in 12 months, dealt with some injuries, got over them and started running again, but in a less competitive way. I run for the enjoyment. Lately when I run I notice that ... Read more

It's been a crazy time. A long story short. Our "new" house has water leaking into the basement. The home inspector didn't see it and the insurance company said it was preexisting, so won't cover the cost to repair. So we have the carpet folded ... Read more
