Mid-March Update
Wednesday, March 15, 2017      2 comments

So the scale has held steady at the top end of my goal weight range for the last couple of weeks - 130 pounds. This is OK with me because I started measuring again, and I've seen those heading south even though my weight has maintained. What I w... Read more
Mid-February Update
Tuesday, February 14, 2017      0 comments

So far, so good!! So after 3 weeks of steady gain (total of 4 pounds), I had a 4 pound weight loss (perhaps it really was a combo of muscle, swelling, and hormones), because I most definitely was not eating enough to gain anything (I had a consi... Read more
Just a little update

So tracking my goals has really pushed me to also monitor calories and exercise, which in general is helping me, I think. My scale says otherwise right now. I've been steadily gaining about 1 pound a week for the last 3 weeks now that I'm ... Read more

A slow re-start to running
Tuesday, December 06, 2016      1 comments

So I was given the go-ahead to run a half mile. I know. 5 minutes of running. Wheee? It actually took us 6 minutes and 8 seconds. It was a very slow half mile. But on a good note I was not in any worse pain the next morning than I have been all ... Read more
FINALLY!!!
Wednesday, November 23, 2016      2 comments

The PT gave me permission to try a short (1/2 mile) run!!! I am still having foot pain, but it's getting much better, and I have a plan of attack to continue working on healing. Maybe running will aggravate it, but maybe not. I am super excited ... Read more

I am STILL not back to myself. I called the doctor's office this morning because I'm still struggling to eat, and she said that it's totally normal for an adult to take 3-6 weeks before they're really back to normal with what they're able to swa... Read more
