Hello SparkFriends, I know that I've been MIA lately, but I am just determined to provide an update on what's been going on with me...and take a look through a bunch of Spark Pages today to see what's been happening with all of you. I hope... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Tuesday, June 15, 2010      10 comments

Okay, so over the weekend, I met the goal that I had originally scheduled for THANKSGIVING 2010! - ran 6.2 miles (10K) on the treadmill. True, it took me 90 minutes to do it (I used to routinely run a 10K in under 55 minutes, back in the da... Read more

Been a long time since I ate a bug!

Sunday, June 06, 2010      10 comments

It's been so long since I spent a lot of time running outdoors that I completely forgot about the first rule of summer running in the South: You can breathe through your mouth...but keep your front teeth together. Ottherwise, at some point you... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Sunday, May 30, 2010      6 comments

Well, I haven't posted about this in a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd write something down. My goal for May was to, by month end, run 5.5 miles without stopping or walking. I did this on May 22nd, so I met my goal. However, this past w... Read more

Have any of you dog owners ever seen that FreeCreditScore.com commercial?

Friday, May 21, 2010      13 comments

Well, my two dogs fit that commercial perfectly. Juliet: Me: "Bad 509!" Juliet: grrrrr....grrrrr (scampers away quickly and continues destructo-dog behavior with whatever item of mine she happens to have in her mouth at the time) ... Read more

50 lbs Lost - Woohoo!

Thursday, May 20, 2010      23 comments

Well, today I 'officially' reached 50 lbs lost since I began my journey on November 12, 2009. So it took me almost exactly 6 months. I still have about 35 lbs to go...and at the rate I have been losing lately (only .4 down this week, for e... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Sunday, May 16, 2010      6 comments

Well, bumped up the mileage again this week - ran 5 miles yesterday, with another quarter of a mile walking cool down at the end. But I don't think I could have run another 1.2 miles though - I was pretty tired at the end of the run. Maybe... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Saturday, May 08, 2010      6 comments

Today I ran 4.8 miles and could have run over 5 with ease. So I am definitely on track for 6.2 by July 4. Still slow, but I don't care. My time is not important. I just want to finish without walking, and I think I will be able to do tha... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Monday, May 03, 2010      6 comments

Well, today I ran 4.3 miles, and felt good at the end, could have fun further, etc. On track for my May objective of a 5.5 mile long run, I think. Still slow, but a bit faster pace than my 4 mile run last Sunday, so can't complain. Tomor... Read more

Peachtree Roadrace Training Update

Monday, April 26, 2010      7 comments

Well, the good news is that I am ahead of schedule in terms of distance - I can now comfortably run 4 miles without stopping or walking - for the past 2 days I have run that distance and could easily have gone further. My goal was to get to 4 m... Read more

Fitness DVD Don't Buy - 10 Min Solution Kettlebell Workout

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      9 comments

I bought this DVD about 6 weeks ago, before I was laid off, but decided to do it only today. What a disappointment! Mostly because...wait for it...... The instructor doesn't even USE A *&%^) KETTLEBELL. Read more

Worrying when I see my SparkFriends list shrink

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      9 comments

Have any of you ever noticed when your friends list shrinks by one, and you then proceed to sort of worry about this person who has apparently left....wondering if they are okay? It might be stupid. I mean, we are all big kids, right? And... Read more

Okay...so I'm staggeringly bad at blogging.

Saturday, April 17, 2010      13 comments

Wow, I wish I could get myself organized and 'together'. It's like ever since I've been out of work, it feels like I'm even more busy than before, but instead of the days having a normal rhythm, they are all out of sync and disorganized...... Read more

So all of a sudden, it's April....

Sunday, April 04, 2010      11 comments

Greetings, SparkFriends! Sorry I have not been around much these past few weeks. But as many of you know, I was given notice I was being laid off on March 1...and March 31 was my last day. The last few weeks have been very busy, passing o... Read more

This week on LOST (completely unrelated to healthy lifestyle issues)

Thursday, March 25, 2010      8 comments

Okay...so how many of my fellow Losties just LOVED this week's episode? Richard has always been one of my favorite characters (I love characters shrouded in mystery, and he certainly had alot of THAT!) and so I was hoping for alot from this... Read more
