Think I Guessed Right
Monday, August 29, 2011      8 comments

When I woke up my quads were still sore. They were sore Saturday when I ran the 6 miles and sore all day Sunday. So I wasn't sure if I should run or not today. I would say it really wasn't pain and definitely was in the muscle. So I decided to t... Read more
Social Running

I was trying to write out my status this afternoon to share my morning experience when I hit something and my status appeared before I was finished. Grandkids were needing me at the time so I decided to just let it be, flawed as it was. But in ... Read more
Not Pulling Together
Thursday, August 25, 2011      8 comments

Sometimes Kahlua, our just turned year old Shepherd-lab mix, walks on the leash just like she learned in obedience training. And then sometimes she doesn't. There are times I think I did not burn the calories indicated by the time and mileage be... Read more

Above is my hero, Rhonda Fosser. She turned 60 in May of this year. In the most recent 5K I ran, her chip time was 23:02. She is a phenom! She won the Grandmaster Female tr... Read more
Just a Fluctuation
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday I reported that I had weighed more than at any morning weigh in 2011. I weighed over my target range of 124-129.9. I ate plenty of healthy food yesterday, eating around the top of my calorie range. Yet I was down 3.2 pounds and back in... Read more
Getting It Back
Monday, August 22, 2011      9 comments

My chip time for the 5K on Saturday was 30:47; my personal best is 28:46. You might think I'd find this discouraging, but not so. I actually feel excited that I ran that well so easily. I took lots of walk breaks and was hardly even breathing ha... Read more

Here's my finish line picture from yesterday's 5K. I hope to do at least 2 minutes faster in my next race on September 3rd. We'll see. ... Read more
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

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

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

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

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
