Little Disappointment, Lot of Encouragement

Friday, May 20, 2011      13 comments

I met with the Wellness Coach at the YMCA for the first time since December. Today I was three pounds below what I weighed at our last appointment. I was a little disappointed that my body fat percentage (26.8%) did not change significantly tho... Read more

Applause! Applause!

I have often described myself as an award junkie. I've been known to go to almost ridiculous lengths to achieve some pathetic certificate or trifling ribbon. But today I received some sincere and significant recognition that felt positively wond... Read more

Where There's a Will There's a Way

Today as I was packing up to go to the gym, I realized something. I've gotten much better at packing up to go to the gym! My gym has lockers, but they are day use only, so you have to take everything each time. I carry my walking/running s... Read more

Weight Watchers is sponsoring a 5K this Saturday at 6:30pm at Lake Hollingsworth. The Lakeland Runner's Club is loaning its timing clock. As I previously reported (and reported and reported) I ran a 5K on May 7th. I have 4 more 5Ks scheduled, th... Read more

You know, I should not have even let those "Old Lady Skinny" comments get to me as much as they did. It was like I knew intellectually that the mean comment was just not relevant for me, but it still bothered me, even though I was trying hard to... Read more

Old Lady Skinny !?!!

Sunday, May 15, 2011      20 comments

I was told today by an online acquaintance that I am "old lady skinny." There may be a grain of truth in her comment. It might be actually easier for me now to eat normally than when I had the challenge of monthly hormonal fluctuations. She went... Read more

The Belt Buckle Bash

Saturday, May 14, 2011      9 comments

Last evening hubby and I attended United Way's Belt Buckle Bash. We took a hayride all around a horse ranch, listened to good (not usually my kind of music, but I was in the mood) country music, had a very good BBQ dinner in a big auction barn,... Read more

Great Local Team

Friday, May 13, 2011      9 comments

Last evening my hubby and I had a great time with our local SparkTeam, eating at a local restaurant. There were eight of us and we've all known each other for a year or so and are very comfortable. We had good conversation and many laughs. I fee... Read more

I got my award today. I expected a medal I could wear around my neck something like the one I got at the Senior Games. I thought it might be a mini-trophy, maybe a plaque, or a perhaps a certificate. I was wrong. It is a colorful painted drinkin... Read more

You Haven't Seen the Last of My Race Yet!!

These "turn around" pictures were just posted a couple hours ago on the Lakeland Runner's Club web site. Here's me on the yellow line at the half way mark: Here's me just... Read more

Thanks, SparkFriends, for celebrating with me. You really added to my sense of accomplishment and joy. You are the greatest! I don't have near as many race tips to blog about this time as I did after my first race, but I do have a four tip... Read more

Not Quite the Way I Remembered It

Sunday, May 08, 2011      8 comments

Okay, the race clock says 31:13 as I'm about to cross the finish line and 31:15 after I'm well across it, not 31:09 as I remembered. Read more

The Mayfaire 5K was my second race. I think I did good. First of all, I finished. That's good. I was far from last. That's good. I got the hydration right (wasn't dehydrated, but didn't need bio-break). That's good. My new MP3 earbuds that curl ... Read more
