Was that me?
Thursday, August 25, 2016     

It's been six years since my last blog. I reread what I wrote and have to say I'm surprised at who I've become. I ran, did spin, and lifted weights on y own for a a lot of years before joining a guy at the urging of my daughter. This gym is di... Read more
I'm being stalked
Thursday, December 23, 2010     

I am being stalked! By cookies! I "regifted" about 10,000 calories worth of homemade goodies to my husband' s coworkers. So many of the families I work with drop off a plate of cookies, baklava, banana bread and boxes of candy that I can't eve... Read more

So I wrapped up my cast and took a dip in the pool yesterday. With my driving leg in a cast, it's really easy to coop myself up in the house and sit in front of the tv. It's easy to succumb to the easy way out. I find it hard to do much as fa... Read more
At least I'm not Betty
Tuesday, August 03, 2010     

Sometimes in our struggles to lose weight, we focus on the goal...the exoteric aspects of working out and losing weight. I spent a few days in the hospital for pancreatitis and I have a new perspective on life. Not because I had a bout of seve... Read more
a fork in the road
Monday, August 02, 2010     

So I was blogging prior only for myself. Boring stuff for most readers. All about my leg and cast etc and no one on Spark cares (or should) what going on with a simple medical issue. From now on I will blog about my journey to better health a... Read more
another new cast
Sunday, August 01, 2010     

I saw my dr for something unrelated to my leg. I complained about the size and lack of compression I felt with the sloppy cast. Next thing I know, a team of 2 came a whipped up a new cast for me in about 5 minutes. It's 1/2 the size and is sn... Read more
temporary cast
Thursday, July 29, 2010     

I went to get my temporary cast changed yesterday. My new one is not only HUGE, but it weighs a ton! What a workout lugging this thing around. I will wait a few days to get my upper body muscles used to using the crutches then I will hit the ... Read more

Well, I really blew it. Fell down a slight hill and boom! Broke my leg. I've never broken a bone, and never felt the need to. What pain! Physically, I hurt. The actual break hurt like no other. I turned white according to my friends. T... Read more
still hurting
Monday, July 12, 2010     

I still hurt from my fall yesterday. Mostly the scrapes on my knee and hands, but my finger was jammed. It's swollen and hard to bend. I still went to the gym and ran almost 2 miles, but i think I failed to eat energy. No exc... Read more
I'm Official
Sunday, July 11, 2010     

I've been running for a little over a year now. I started when a friend asked if I wanted to run our local Race For the Cure on Memorial Day 2009. The 5K took me almost 45 minutes to "run" and it took a lot out of me. It lit a fire under me t... Read more
