I'm An Athlete

Friday, June 10, 2011      13 comments

I only signed up for Facebook to get SparkPoints, but was happy that it reconnected me to quite a few old friends. I posted the picture of me finishing the first 2011 Watermelon Series 5K. A person who has known me for over 40 years, and undoubt... Read more

Wait For Me!!

Wednesday, June 08, 2011      16 comments

Why do I run? Well, I can't outrun Father Time, but it sure is fun to try! And the truth is, sometimes it is fun, and sometimes it isn't. And sometimes it makes me feel amazingly young and sometimes it doesn't. Guess the competitive side o... Read more

Thoughts Count

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      8 comments

I'm going to work on coming up with some positive statements, affirmations, mantras, or songs to help me start my runs on a more positive note. In my last race, the whole first mile I must admit, I was thinking very negatively. The thought that ... Read more

Don't Skip a Week

Monday, June 06, 2011      11 comments

I'm really sore today. Right now I feel my neck and shoulders every time I move, so I don't think it was the run. My glutes and quads are sore, too. It must have been my strength training workout yesterday. I had skipped a couple ST sessions th... Read more

Hey, I found out that the woman who passed me yesterday near the end of the 5K race was last year's winner for our age group. That made me extra glad I then passed her, beating her by 6 hundredths of a second. This race our chip time was the off... Read more

Smile Naked

Monday, May 30, 2011      13 comments

One thing came up at my Weight Watcher's meeting this week and keeps going through my head. It was said that losing weight makes you look better in clothes, but exercise makes you look better naked! Hey, there may be something to that. Makes me... Read more

Applies to Me this Week

Saturday, May 28, 2011      10 comments

My heart rate monitor (HRM) acted funny earlier this week and it kind of scared me. Also, I have a head cold and didn't feel great. So this is the first week in months I am not over the 1800 calories I committed to burn each week. Today I... Read more

I left the Community Team last week. I don't think that is a negative thing. For a while I was just feeling so great about losing weight that on the positive side, spreading the message was very top of my mind. And on the not so positive, fears ... Read more

Sunday, May 22, 2011      9 comments

Well, I finally figured out how to use my heart rate monitor. I just did a 10 minute warm up, 30 minute run, and then I planned to do a 10 minute cool down. But it was so much fun watching my heart rate drop that I ended up doing 5 extra really ... Read more

Good Week

I just weighed in at Weight Watchers at 126.6 fully clothed and after light breakfast. I ate out several times this last week and did not deprive myself, so I feel pretty good about my weigh in today. I did my 3 runs and 3 cross training s... Read more

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
