Growing Confidence

Monday, May 23, 2011      14 comments

I've been at a healthy BMI (under 25) for 26 months now. I decreased my official Weight Watcher goal from 155 to 148 to 139. I've now been 139 or under for 19 months. For 2010 I set a personal goal to stay under135 and did it. For 2011 I sat my... Read more

Important May Goal Achieved; Procrastination Overcome

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

Saturday, May 21, 2011      10 comments

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

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

Thanks Again

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

Kahlua had her first obedience class last eve. I am proud to report that she and I took a long walk this morning and 95% of the time she was not pulling on the leash! Can't believe she's making such progress so quickly.... 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!!

Tuesday, May 10, 2011      7 comments

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
