Slenderella61 is upset with herself, but refusing to be discouraged. I will not give up. I want to maintain the lower weight (122-126) but am still plagued by thoughts that it might be a weight I just can't realistically maintain. Scale was 128 ... Read more

Enjoyed the YMCA Spring Extravaganza with the kids yesterday. Gwen told me that this is NOT the Easter bunny. She knows because this is a PERSON who was her instructor at Jellyfish camp last summer: ... Read more

I wrote a blog and deleted it before anyone read it. It was about excuses. The blog was too critical. When it comes to excuses, I am trying to rid myself, but going to be more tolerant of others'. Ran-walked-ran 5.8 miles with nephew this b... Read more

I bought a new MP3 player the other day, a very inexpensive, very light clip-on model. My old MP3 player still works, but I dropped it on the treadmill several years ago and some of the functions don't work. It has a lot of good music on it and ... Read more

Here are some pictures of Panther Point Trail posted by people I ran with yesterday. I just love running in the beauty of nature. 9 miles of trail are done. The county has put lime and shells, almost as hard as cement, in the low spots, and buil... Read more

Four mile run-walk this morning at :45 run/:30 walk. It was 79 degrees and a "realfeel" rating of 87 degrees. TV said it is near record high temp for the date and "uncomfortable" humidity, but not "oppressive." I sat out water to drink I could g... Read more

What a wonderful balance to being "over-Disneyed". Yesterday we spent the day at Colt Creek State Park, 16 miles north of Lakeland in the Green Swamp. The event was incredible! So many fun and educational things for the kids to do and for us adu... Read more
