Feeling Blessed
Wednesday, March 22, 2017      29 comments

You know, I don't feel old. I don't feel old at all. I run and jump and dance and play with the grandkids. I can go all day; yesterday at Disney I racked up over 20 miles. No problem! I remember being so tired in my 40's, with a challengin... Read more
Square Dance Workshop Report
Monday, March 20, 2017      9 comments

After the first square dance I was embarrassed and ready to leave. No kidding! But the most wonderful thing happened. The nicest man and his wife came over and offered to dance with us. I danced with the husband and Gary danced with the wife and... Read more
Nephew, Square Dance, and Running
Sunday, March 19, 2017      14 comments

This morning nephew and I did a little over 5 miles. We jogged a bit, but mostly walked. I was letting him set the pace and he had a pain in his leg that didn't affect him when walking, but limited our running. He said he just has to get the ext... Read more
Adapting for Maintenance and a Laugh
Friday, March 17, 2017      20 comments

Daylight savings time means I leave my house with just a few sunrays peeking over the tops of trees and houses and the sky brightens pink, golden, purple as I drive east to get the grandkids. And sometimes, like this morning, I get to say good m... Read more
Once Again Smiling at the Scale!
Thursday, March 16, 2017      44 comments

My almost 8 years of maintenance have had their ups and downs, but I'm pretty happy with where I am right now. In fact I hit the lowest weight I've weighed in a year and a half, 125.6. I like this weight a great deal. I feel good. I feel strong.... Read more
Planning with the Whole Alphabet
Tuesday, March 14, 2017      20 comments

I'm still a little sore from my races on Saturday, and I didn't expect to be. But it is okay. I don't practice that power walking very often and the muscles it taxed (glutes, piriformis) are ones that need to be strengthened. So, more power walk... Read more

My 80 year old friend, Fritz, was amazing. He ran the 5k in 29:47 and took the gold at Senior Games. He couldn't stay for the award ceremony, so he got his medal with picture on stand (which hasn't been posted yet) before everyone else and then ... Read more

With my new Vivosmart HR, I report data to Garmin Connect. Garmin Connect has assigned me to two challenges and I signed up for one in the Official SparkPeople Garmin Team. My first weeks have gone well. I had over 181,000 steps last week, putti... Read more

Doing great! I did eat one small piece of fried fish at the fish fry. I took a spoonful of tomato slaw, very interesting. I skipped the desserts, the baked beans, the hush puppies. I was pleased. My husband was not embarrassed by my eating or la... Read more

I ran with the absolute most enthusiastic new runner I have ever met this morning and another runner who would have taken that title if it wasn't for the first one! We finished the Promise 5K in under an hour, running the hilly course in :10/:30... Read more
Savoring A Dear Compliment
Friday, March 03, 2017      42 comments

Compliments can be truly motivating. One of my SP friend suggested that I write down compliments about my weight loss to re-read for motivation after the compliments diminish and everyone just thinks of me as a normal weight person. I have some ... Read more
