Self-Centered Obsession or Maybe Delusion
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      19 comments

I woke up feeling really fat and flabby today. Don't really know why. I hadn't weighed since Friday, partly because I thought my weight was up and didn't want to see it. But today I thought I should face it. I weighed 126.2, right in my target r... Read more

My daughter has a stress fracture near her heel and feels it on the bottom of her foot. She is in a cast, but should be able to go back to work in two weeks. Carrying the baby is hard for her. Keeping up with the four year old is also a challeng... Read more

Here's me in my purple running shorts, finishing the race. You can see I'm smiling. I truly enjoyed this race. I don't have the quad and hamstring tightness I had afte... Read more
Results Already

Well, the 2011 Watermelon 5K Series, race two, is in the book. I felt good the entire race; much better than last race. I started out running to Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah just because I wanted to. It reminded me to smile, enjoy it, and not let my heart b... Read more
Celebrating Fitness

I got an e-mail telling me that the Watermelon Series awards will be based on gun time, not net time (chip time). Evidentally, there was some problem with some of the chips so that not everyone got a time. On the web site only net times are list... Read more
Getting Ready and Unexpected Challenge
Thursday, June 23, 2011      13 comments

I am getting ready for my 5K on Saturday. I've chosen my clothes, washed my running socks, trimmed my toe nails, checked my glasses, etc. I ran Tuesday and took a long walk today. Plan a short elliptical session tomorrow. I still have just a tou... Read more
Overreacting and Undereating
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      12 comments

This morning I was down 3.8 pounds from my weigh in yesterday. After overeating a little bit 2 days in a row, I really cut back. It worked. Only, it would have been healthier to have eaten at least 1200 calories (29 Weight Watcher pointsplus) ye... Read more
Missing Annie

WalkingAnnie was one of the wisest and most inspiring SparkFriends I ever had. She researched issues related to weight and fitness, especially appropriate for us who are making changes after years of poor eating habits. Her blogs were full of he... Read more
Good Workout Today
Saturday, June 18, 2011      7 comments

Enjoyed a warm up walk with my SparkTeam this morning at a local air conditioned mall. Then I ran two miles without problem. When I'm running I don't even think about my lower back, although it is still bothering me if I turn or bend suddenly. T... Read more
Now I Know
Thursday, June 16, 2011      17 comments

It's a mild injury. Now I know. I am still hopeful that I'll be able to runthe 5K on June 25th. I'm not going to get in all my training runs so my time may not be as good as it might have been. In the big picture, though, I don't think this lit... Read more
Wish I Knew
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      12 comments

Sure wish I knew whether it is muscle soreness and nothing to worry about, or whether I strained something in my lower back and ought to rest. I'm backing off of strength training of core and legs for now. I did a treadmill workout today, but on... Read more
I'm An Athlete

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
