Thursday, September 15, 2011      10 comments

Today I got something in the mail I have been wanting since April of 2008. I finally received my major medical insurance card and policy. I had been denied repeatedly for ridiculous and spurious reasons after my husband was laid off and I lost i... Read more
The Time Has Come
Wednesday, September 14, 2011      6 comments

Tonight I threw away a pair of beyond worn out, completely tattered, totally used up, absolutely spent Reeboks. Despite the fact that they were in shreds with absolutely no remaining value, I felt a bit nostalgic. At one time they were white lea... Read more

I saw a fellow today that I used to see often when I first joined the YMCA. Now that I'm running I don't take near as many exercise classes, so I hadn't seen him for a while. Right off I could tell he had lost a significant amount of weight, com... Read more

I set a new personal record today for distance. I went 10 miles. I did it on the treadmill at 1% incline with no holding on. After warm up, I ran 4 minutes and then walked 1 minute for 10 miles. I ran at 6mph and walked at 4.5mph. I don't feel t... Read more

I finally got the pictures from the Sept 3rd. I posted this one yesterday on my SparkPage, although it is so little you can hardly see me. I like the finish from the side, because you can see I'm still running! ... Read more

I keep a list of the advantages of living at goal weight. Those of you who have followed the Beck Diet Solution know exactly what I'm writing about. I have the advantages written out on 3x5 cards, sitting on my treadmill, so I see them daily and... Read more

I ran over 8 miles this morning in 80 minutes. Felt good. Hurried home and cleaned up for morning through lunch meeting. I didn't add the salad dressing, but there was already some on the romaine salad. I set the croutons aside. I did my b... Read more

Some little indulgences really add a lot to life!! One of mine is having a variety of shampoo and matching fragrance conditioners to choose from each day. I enjoy soothing lavendar lots of days, but sometimes prefer an energizing citrus. I have ... Read more

As promised in my status message today, I went to the YMCA and not only checked out, but participated in, the Zumbathon. For two hours, with only a few second's break here and there, we Zumba'ed. We had 150 dancers/exercisers in the gym along wi... Read more

I ran the Faster with FitNiche 5K in 28 minutes and 32 seconds, I think. It might have been 33 or 34 seconds. It will be posted online tomorrow, so I'll know for sure. This time the finish line pictures are for sale; in my past races they were f... Read more

Today after my run at the gym I used a foam roller for the first time on my quads, hamstrings, and calves. I had watched a SP video on how to use it to prevent or reduce soreness. I think it helped. I'm extra excited about my 5K on Saturday... Read more

This morning we had a shower of sparks coming out of our kitchen light/ceiling fan fixture. I ended up spending the time I intended to use for exercise holding flashlights and tools for hubby. Right now the fixture is not back together -- it is ... Read more

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

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
