It's summer in Florida this week. We're in the 80's, we've even had some high 80's, but the humidity is pretty good. The azaleas came out: I co... Read more

Gradually
Wednesday, February 14, 2018      11 comments

No repercussions from my running test yesterday, so guess I'll go forward with the return to running plan, very gradually easing back into running. DD was really helpful today. She stopped by and offered to take us grocery shopping since ou... Read more
Running Baby Steps
Tuesday, February 13, 2018      10 comments

I hesitate to report my recent activity. I wouldn't really call it running, I'd call it testing if I'm ready to start running. First I jogged up and down my carpeted hallway in my running shoes and that felt good. So I got out the "Return to Run... Read more
Maintenance Issues
Monday, February 12, 2018      9 comments

The car is in the shop and I've got my daughter's SUV so I can get the kids from school and to the Y for their gymnastics today. She's adjusting her work hours Tuesday-Thursday so we won't need her car. We'll probably miss Senior Dance this week... Read more
Better Day

Thanks, SparkFriends, for all your wise and supportive words yesterday. It was a big help to get me back on track with my thinking and my eating. Hubby was good yesterday, too. He wanted to go out to eat; our sink was stopped up and he wor... Read more
Working on Motivation
Saturday, February 10, 2018      15 comments

I am feeling the need to get re-motivated! Didn't like the number on the scale today, and if truth be told, some of my clothes are telling me that I'm at the top of my weight range or maybe a tick above. Why again? Whenever I'm not very, very ca... Read more
Mardi Gras Dance

We really enjoyed Senior Dance today with the Mardi Gras theme. My energy is back and I danced almost every dance with enthusiasm! The photogra... Read more
Advantage: Function
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      14 comments

Every day I go over my reasons for doing the work to maintain my 80 pound weight loss. I often read the words off my index card as Beck (Judith Beck, PhD) recommends to keep motivation high. Sometimes I say or think each one. Health is top reaso... Read more
Thinking About Habits
Monday, February 05, 2018      17 comments

It's been 37 days since I ran. And it may be a week or two more until my lung pain is totally gone and I try, starting very slowly, to run again. I first ran as an adult in January of 2011 at age 61. I have been very consistent running 3 times a... Read more
EPCOT Outing and Update
Saturday, February 03, 2018      16 comments

Enjoyed a half day at EPCOT. I got in 22,000 steps and feel okay. I sat a little more than usual and probably wasn't as fast or as energetic as I was before my illness, but I was able to keep up with the family. I can now raise my arms abov... Read more
Breathing Deeply
Wednesday, January 24, 2018      22 comments

Looks like the bronchitis has now evolved into pleurisy. Ouch! I still can't run. Sitting down, getting up, laying down, standing up, deep breaths, stretching all hurt. The really sore spot is in my ribs on the left side. I'm to sleep with left ... Read more
Still Lousy
Sunday, January 21, 2018      19 comments

I'm still feeling lousy. Haven't run since December 30th, 2017. Even trying to walk just sets me up for a coughing fit and pain in my front, back, chest, lungs?? Sitting up, laying down, moving hurts. My head hasn't quit hurting for over 2 weeks... Read more
