Mileage total for 2015

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      5 comments

My 'goal' was 1000 miles in 2015. My actual was 592.66 miles. That seems like a big deficit. It really isn't though. I started in 2013 trying to get to 1000 miles in the year. I barely made it to 100 miles in 2013 due to health issues. In 2014 I... Read more

2 years in the making, many hours in preparation, much pain, much sorrow, and finally much joy! On Sunday, December 6, 2015 - I completed the San Antonio Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon in 3:59:23. I'm no race horse but I proved that slow and steady ca... Read more

Feeling down

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      1 comments

Life currently has me feeling down. I've tried to get myself motivated but it just isn't working. I was thinking hard about this last night. I know the questions that will be asked of me by those I need to approach on this. How was I able to do ... Read more

THAT number :(

Wednesday, March 18, 2015      5 comments

I saw a number on the scale I had hoped I would never see again. Lack of motivation and drive brought that number back to me. What is that number? 164. I know for a lot of people that number is one they look forward to seeing but for me it is no... Read more

Finishing out 2014 better than 2013!

Thursday, January 01, 2015      2 comments

In 2013 I joined a 1000 miles in 1 year challenge and barely ended the year with 100 miles. I joined again in 2014 and even with health challenges and surgery/recovery I beat my previous miles! I finished off the year with 472.3 miles! Yes I kno... Read more

Back in action!

Sunday, November 23, 2014      1 comments

After 6 weeks of nothing post surgery and a week following that just trying to get myself back into the right mental state today I finally made it out to do my first post surgery walk. 1.9 miles is not a lot for someone used to doing 5k distance... Read more

A little down but not out!

Thursday, August 21, 2014      2 comments

So my hysterectomy has been scheduled for October 2, which is months after we had hoped it would be set for and completed. This means several things, but the biggest is that I will not, now, be able to participate in the 1/2 marathon I signed up... Read more

A little date with my 21 year-old daughter

Sunday, July 20, 2014      1 comments

Last night my daughter and I went out for a little girl time. It was fun and I was proud of her and how I actually looked. I'm glad that we did it because you never know what life will bring. In the words of my grandmother, 'Live your life to th... Read more

Upcoming procedures

Thursday, July 10, 2014      2 comments

My health hasn't been the most wonderful thing of late and now we are looking at surgery to fix the issues. On this coming Tuesday, 7/15, I'll be undergoing a hysteroscopy and D&C to biopsy my uterine lining to see if the suspicion of adenomyosi... Read more

Challenging myself

Wednesday, November 20, 2013      3 comments

It has been a long time since I really challenged myself. Right now I'm so busy doing craft stuff that I haven't really challenged myself physically. Since I am part of a challenge for San Antonio Spark I figured I needed to rise up to meet that... Read more

Right now my crafting is taking the place of my exercise. I know I need to work on that big time because I need my exercise as well. For now, though, I have a ton of items to make and have ready for the big show I'm in on December 7th so everyth... Read more

First 5k since 2009

Saturday, September 28, 2013      0 comments

Today I participated in my first 5k other than Walk MS since 2009. The funny thing is the last one I did in November 2009 was the Break the Silence 5k for ovarian cancer and today I did the same event - Break the Silence 5k. Today I was not alon... Read more

Barium = weight loss?

Saturday, September 21, 2013      2 comments

So it seems that barium and my body react very interestingly. I have been cleaned out, literally, for over 36 hours, not the normal reaction it would seem. In this process I've dropped from 157 on Tuesday (which was up 2 pounds from a week or so... Read more

10 pounds

Wednesday, September 18, 2013      2 comments

Who would have thought 10 pounds would mean that much? Yesterday I went to visit with our general practice clinic due to some kidney pain and continued abdominal pain (since June 5, 2012 even post surgery to 'fix' it) and when I was weighed I wa... Read more

So many firsts!

Sunday, August 18, 2013      0 comments

In the last 7 days we have had so many firsts! A week ago we had a huge fundraiser for Sophia's upcoming and previous medical procedures which was a great success. That day she got to ride on the huge fire rescue truck (a first for not only her ... Read more
