Watermelon Series Final

Saturday, August 20, 2011      12 comments

I ran race 4 of the Watermelon Series of 5Ks. I have now run five 5K races and this was my slowest by 2 seconds at 31:21. I started at the back of the pack and I didn't push it. I'm still recovering from a bear of a cold -- actually two of them ... Read more

Pleased and Honored

Friday, August 19, 2011      11 comments

My niece called yesterday and asked me to run a 5K with her. She's a really neat person, 24 years old, recently engaged to be married, graduated valedictorian of her high school and at the top of her university class, beautiful, funny, hard work... Read more

It's Not Nice to Laugh at the Doctor

Thursday, August 18, 2011      11 comments

I had comprehensive lab work and all my numbers are good. My high blood pressure and high cholestrol are gone and staying gone. Thanks, SparkPeople! Yeah, me!! I almost laughed, though, when my doctor said my weight has stabilized. I weighe... Read more

Joy and Celebration

Wednesday, August 17, 2011      11 comments

Hubby and I are celebrating our 32nd anniversary today. We are eating out tonight. I'll eat as healthy as I can and I will enjoy. I think of all the things I've accomplished in my life -- earning a degree with honors, raising a good kid, contrib... Read more

Congrats to the Slowest Loser

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      9 comments

I really enjoyed the Slowest Loser blogs and am delighted that he made his goal! It's great to have someone promoting slow weight loss. When you lose it slow, you aren't as hungry. You are better able to meet your nutritional needs than with a s... Read more

No Television Coverage Needed

Saturday, August 13, 2011      24 comments

I ran into a person I see from time to time through my work. When I first met her I weighed more than 200 pounds. She was very complimentary -- and maybe a little surprised -- that I have maintained my weight loss now for several years. She... Read more

SparkPeople Workout Music

Thursday, August 11, 2011      11 comments

I downloaded the Inspiration Mix from iTunes as featured in the DailySpark today. I'd already worked out today, so it will be tomorrow until I use it fully. But in previewing it, I'm impressed. I think I'm going to like it better than my free do... Read more

Portion Control Questions

Wednesday, August 10, 2011      12 comments

Portion control has been a major weapon in my weight war. I grew up thinking that a quarter of a huge watermelon was a portion, that a package of oreos serves two, and that a pint is a small serving of ice cream. Measuring cups and a postage-typ... Read more

Maybe I Shouldn't be Annoyed, But....

Tuesday, August 09, 2011      14 comments

My mom asked me for the third time today if I didn't think the reason I've had back to back colds for the last month is that I'm too thin. No, mom, I think I finally am staying at a healthy weight for the first time in my life. Perhaps I pushed ... Read more

Peanut Butter Tip and Questions

Monday, August 08, 2011      20 comments

If you microwave a tablespoon of peanut butter for 10 seconds it will spread much easier. Today I enjoyed a tablespoon of PB on a graham cracker and a relatively small amount just tasted heavenly to me! Although I like the all natural peanut but... Read more

No Matter How Bad I Screw Up.....

Sunday, August 07, 2011      14 comments

Yesterday I weighed in at Weight Watchers, my 30th monthly free lifetime weigh in. I spent 2010 about five pounds below my WW goal and now I've been at my personal goal weight range about 10 pounds below my WW goal for 2011. I thank both Weight ... Read more

Follow Up

Friday, August 05, 2011      12 comments

Follow Up to yesterday's blog: Pharmacist recommended triple antibiotic ointment until open sore are gone then switch to hydrocortisone for scaly skin. Seems to be working for me. (Incidentally, my CVS hydrocortisone cream has 10 warnings, but n... Read more

Who Knew? Pharmacist's Instructions

Thursday, August 04, 2011      12 comments

While I'm focused on getting over this cold I thought it would be a good time to treat the scaly skin patches on my hands. I asked the pharmacist and heard something that I didn't know. He said never use cortisone products on broken skin. He sai... Read more

Prepared for the Appetite From Hell

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      7 comments

I can't taste a thing. I could not even tell there were raisins in my oatmeal this morning. Right now my appetite is just neutral - I can eat, but I feel no urgency. So I plan to just make wise decisions. However, I know what to expect. L... Read more

Oh, No, No, No!

Tuesday, August 02, 2011      12 comments

Yesterday I enjoyed a run on the treadmill with 4 minute intervals up to 6.8 mph/1 minute walk at 4.5mph. Wow, I was almost back to speed and almost back from my cold/cough that kept me out of the Watermelon Series race #3. I then tried my new S... Read more
