The Week so Far
Wednesday, February 15, 2017      13 comments

Well, last week was not a good week for half marathon training. Can we say no running? Work was crazy - two nights in a row of being on the phone until 8 pm - not planned! I usually run in the evening or I would have tried to switch it out and w... Read more
Monday Again!
Monday, February 06, 2017      13 comments

Well, the weekend flew by as usual! Did a great job sticking to my half marathon training schedule with a total of 14 miles running. All of them on the track at the gym. Did pretty well with eating and the scale is trending down slowly. I feel b... Read more
Weekend Flew By!
Monday, January 30, 2017      7 comments

Starting week 6 of my Half Marathon training! That means week 6 of being back on track with SP. I'm still feeling good. I'm not perfect, but that is not what this is about, is it? Nutrition: Did great during the week and most of the weeke... Read more
F.I.T. Class
Tuesday, January 24, 2017      15 comments

Well, this week starts week 5 of my half marathon training, hard to believe! That also means it is week 5 since I recommitted to SP. I've had good days and bad days, but mostly good. I'm happy with the progress I'm making. What's going well... Read more
First Outside Run of 2017
Thursday, January 19, 2017      10 comments

So, I'm not a big fan of running outside when it's freezing. I've been running on the treadmill or the indoor track at my new gym. I've missed the great outdoors - but not enough to brave the cold temperatures or the icy roads. My times running ... Read more
Long Weekend!
Tuesday, January 17, 2017      10 comments

It sure was nice to have a 3 day weekend! But here I am back to work with a lot of work to get done in 4 days. Oh well. I went to weigh in on Tuesday and the scale was beeping and gave an error message. I changed the batteries and hoped tha... Read more
Halfway Through January??
Friday, January 13, 2017      7 comments

I truly do not know where the time goes. I was out of town this week for a couple of days. My first business travel of the year. I packed my workout clothes and worked out twice! This is week 3 of my half marathon training schedule and I'm doin... Read more
New Year

Into the first week of 2017 and into week 2 of my half marathon training schedule! I think both are off to a good start! I found the training schedule on day 2 of the schedule. A running buddy of mine told me it was on the running store web site... Read more
Sparkversary
Tuesday, December 27, 2016      10 comments

Well, today is my Sparkversary. I would like to say I'm at goal or maintaining, but that is not the case. I was doing well, or within 10 lbs of my lowest until my Dad got really sick and then passed away in August. I really just got of track and... Read more
Beautiful Weekend!
Monday, November 14, 2016      9 comments

My running group is still running on Saturday mornings. I did not go a week ago. I could have, no real reason I didn't go, except I'm slower than them now. Not a lot slower, but I really just can't keep the pace. I lag behind. When my Dad was si... Read more
Getting Back on Track!
Tuesday, November 08, 2016      17 comments

So, this week I decided enough was enough. I know I've said it before. But my weight has been creeping up and I really don't want to go back. My clothes are getting tighter and it's not a good feeling. I've slacked off on my cardio workouts - I ... Read more
Half Marathon Done!

Packet pick-up was Saturday, so I walked the 1.7 miles each way to go get my packet for the Half Marathon for Sunday. I spent Saturday afternoon with my Mom and the evening relaxing at home. Before I went to bed, I found out the awesome news tha... Read more
Crazy Friday
Monday, October 17, 2016      10 comments

So, I'm on a conference call Friday and my cell phone rings. It is my mother-in-law, who never calls me on my cell phone. She is hard of hearing and has trouble hearing me on my cell phone. I ignore the call and she leaves a voice mail. After my... Read more
Fall is in the Air
Wednesday, October 12, 2016      12 comments

Well it has been a while since I've blogged. Thought I would catch up. Not too much happening. I've had trouble getting back on track. Work has been busy and I've been traveling and I've let that be an excuse. My half marathon training has suffe... Read more
End of Summer Update
Tuesday, September 06, 2016      17 comments

Well, it has been an eventful couple of weeks. When I last updated, my Dad was in the hospital. I have not been checking in too much as his hospital stay was pretty time consuming. My sisters and I took turns staying with him and I had a busines... Read more
