I had two realizations lately. 1) I ran another 10 mile run and felt great at the 11- 12 minute mile range. I have come to accept the slower time because my body doesn't complain and I just feel really good at the end of my runs. Maybe it's als... Read more
I put me in the equation.

We all have good intentions. We plan on working out in the morning, but then we're too tired to get out of bed. We will work out after work, but it gets dark so early. It's too chilly; we have too much work to finish; the kids need help with the... Read more
I'm moving and so is the scale!
Sunday, October 09, 2016      11 comments

I ran almost 6 miles yesterday. My average was 10:50 minut miles with a couple closer to the 10 minute mile range. I was pretty happy with that. It felt good and my joints weren't complaining. I'm also seeing some results on the scale. I a... Read more
I did it! Twice!

I am happy to say I did it, twice. I got two runs in tonight. I went out by myself and went 3.7 miles at a pretty good pace, for me, 11:22 minute miles. I can always feel it when I go faster now a days. Then, I went out with my daugh... Read more
Finding time to run.
Sunday, October 02, 2016      5 comments

It's been a busy week and weekend. I was hoping to get a run in, but no such luck. I hate running in the dark anymore. Between the cars not paying attention and just feeling a bit vulnerable as I get older, I'd rather it be light out. That... Read more
700 days
Tuesday, September 27, 2016      9 comments

Today is the 700th day that I did 30 minutes, or more, of exercise. As a teacher, it isn't difficult since I am up and down hallways and at recess everyday. Don't get me wrong I like my streak and intend to keep it going. However, I need to sta... Read more

Blog challenge: Who/What do I miss.
Tuesday, September 20, 2016      14 comments

ONEKIDSMOM presented a blog challenge and it made me think. Of course, the first I thought of missing were the "whos." My grandparents would have loved my kids, but they both were gone before I was even married. My dad is one I miss immensely. H... Read more
Another year on this earth.

Today is the 49th year that I've been on this earth. I am getting to an age when I can look back and reflect on this journey called life. The past really doesn't matter. Rather we come from rich or poor, tall or short, college educated or... Read more
My first race post hypothyroidism.
Saturday, September 10, 2016      16 comments

This morning I ran the 10 mile Peak to Peak run. I ran with a friend that almost bailed on me. She said she wasn't prepared and I really didn't feel prepared, either, so I told her we could be unprepared together. It was a slower pace than I am... Read more
Numbers and iodine.
Friday, September 09, 2016      6 comments

The numbers on the scale have finally started getting smaller. I still have a ways to go, but I find this very motivating. Today is 9/9 and at 9:09, new changes are supposed to happen. I hope so and I'm ready for it! Maybe I'll lose 9.09 lbs!! ... Read more
I have to prove it to myself.

At the beginning of this school year, I caved in and bought some bigger pants. I hated to do it, but it was really necessary. I also bought one pair of bigger running shorts. I bought a size medium so that I will be more comfortable running on S... Read more

Last night a fellow teacher and hypothyroid and I went to a seminar about our "condition." It had a lot of good information, a few pieces that I didn't know being so new to this. However, at the end out came the forms to sign-up for a consultati... Read more
A good day.

It was a typical Sunday, except that I went on a run. I ended up at the bike trails and found out that I love trail running. I've done it before, but they were "races" and it was with friends. Today it was just me. I could hear the birds s... Read more
