Not 30k, but a 31k!
Sunday, May 28, 2017      13 comments

Yesterday was my 30k run. It was unsupported which not only meant no aid stations, but no time, no medals, no shirts, just running. I normally LOVE the bling, but I loved this run. I felt good for my "normal" amount of miles. When I hit ... Read more
My huband is motivating.
Monday, May 22, 2017      18 comments

I was planning on going for a run tonight, but after a pedicure with my mom and dinner with my husband I had dismissed the idea. Then my husband said something that motivated me. He told my daughters that I had planned on going on a run so I cou... Read more
Mental Health Day
Thursday, May 11, 2017      9 comments

Yesterday I took a mental health day from work. I got a little over 8 hours of sleep, a rarity for me! I usually get around six, no matter what time I go to bed. I did some things around the house, but by 10:30 AM I was bored. It was a clo... Read more
Changing it up.
Thursday, May 04, 2017      11 comments

Thank you for all the comments on my last blog. I have been trying to change it up, but will do so even more later this month. My friend puts on a bootcamp twice a week through the summer. He works at the local Y and really challenges mind and b... Read more
Coming to acceptance
Wednesday, May 03, 2017      27 comments

This journey is full of ups and downs. Funny how when we look at the scale it's actually "backwards." The up, higher numbers, isn't what we want and the downs, lower numbers, is the "good." I continue to struggle with those darn numbers. Down 5,... Read more
I missed my own anniversary.
Thursday, April 27, 2017      14 comments

I completely forgot about my maintenance anniversary! It still is somewhat hard for me to call myself a maintainer when I've gained some weight back. However, I am maintaining my healthy lifestyle of eating healthy and exercising daily. I'm runn... Read more
Numbers and words.
Friday, April 14, 2017      17 comments

Wow, I did not catch the mistake in my last blog. It ended up being 10 miles in 2 hours. Although, I do have a six hour run later in the year. We just run, or move, for six hours to see how far we get. I figure it will be a good way to gage my ... Read more
A long run and a leaky bladder.

I got your attention with that catchy title, didn't I? emoticon Tonight I did a "long" run by myself so I ran my p... Read more
Playing poker.
Tuesday, April 04, 2017      45 comments

I've never "really" played poker, but I do know a little about the game. I've come to the conclusion that life is a little like poker and right now I am holding too many deuces. It's time to throw them out and get a better hand! My deuces a... Read more
A new definition of maintenance.
Monday, March 20, 2017      46 comments

Maintenance is defined as the process of maintaining or preserving someone or something, or the state of being maintained. We often think of that as maintaining the weight we've lost. For many that is true, but for some of us that is very diffic... Read more
Ups and downs.
Sunday, March 19, 2017      12 comments

A couple of days ago I was at the lowest I've been in quite a while. Not my old goal weight, but still lower than I have been. I have not changed how I eat and I'm still moving, but today I'm up 5 lbs. This is when I get frustrated! I have ... Read more
Avoid Comparisons
Wednesday, March 15, 2017      43 comments

Another page from my devotional was Avoid Comparisons. This resonated with me due to the nature of our society. Everywhere we look we see young, thin, and beautiful women. Magazines, billboards, maybe at the gym, or in the car next to us. We for... Read more
New Beginnings.
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      14 comments

Yesterday's devotional was about new beginnings. It made me think that it really is true, that everyday is a new beginning. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is never promised, but today is a day of new beginnings. Every morning we have choice... Read more
Things are moving!
Friday, March 10, 2017      10 comments

I am heading out for a nice trail run before the expected snowstorm arrives. At least eight miles and maybe ten, if my running partner wants. I am moving the same amount, but I went back to a habit I had when I lost my weight in 2011. I sto... Read more
A lesson from my dog.
Thursday, March 09, 2017      34 comments

I love the way my dog looks at me. It dawned on me that we should take a lesson from our dogs, or other pets. Dog love us unconditionally. They don't care how we look, what the scale says, if we had a cheat day, etc. (However, they really l... Read more
