Bring It On!!

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      13 comments

Today's my 63rd birthday. You might think I'd be worried about getting older. But I'm a runner. I'm thinking more about two years from now. I move up an age group and am I going to be competitive then!! LOL That might be the year I need to enter... Read more

Yesterday I started 3 different blogs and erased them all. I wrote about vigorous exercise moderating my appetite and that my sister finally got her arm out of the cast. I wrote about my 20 month old granddaughter, Gwen, taking much bigger bites... Read more

But It's Made with Real Fruit

Okay. Today is a day to give my hubby some slack and celebrate his 71st birthday. I've got a cake baking in the oven and the eggs are boiled and peeled, just waiting to be deviled. I've got a sincere and nice card and a small gift, including an ... Read more

I'll Be Ready

Saturday, June 02, 2012      11 comments

I did an 80 minutes treadmill workout today with 31 one-minute running intervals. It felt great. My total mileage was 6.2 miles, precisely a 10K. That is 16 minutes slower than I straight ran a 10K in February. But that is fine following a six w... Read more

I've Gone and Done It Now!!

Thursday, May 31, 2012      11 comments

I just registered for the Women's Half Marathon (WHM) in St. Petersburg on November 18, 2012. I have just committed to train for almost six months and to run (or run-walk-run, more likely) 13.1 miles. In January I declared my intention to run a... Read more

After almost 6 weeks of a break from running, I am now officially back training. But this time is really special. I plan to run a half marathon, that is, 13.1 miles. My longest race to date is a 10k, 6.2 miles, and the longest training run of my... Read more

Not a Human Garbage Can

Good day at SeaWorld. Lots of walking. I even walked an hour pushing the stroller while Gwen slept. I had grilled chicken caesar salad. They gave me a half cup of dressing on the side, but I used less than a tablespoon and it was plenty. I pick... Read more

In Control of the Trend

Sunday, May 27, 2012      10 comments

Looking back over the years, any time I avoided stepping on the scale, I was gaining weight. So I know I need to weigh regularly. But I should not be too concerned about any one regular weigh in, definitely not let it ruin my day. I need to look... Read more

But I Really Wanted the WHOLE Potato

Friday, May 25, 2012      11 comments

Usually when I bake potatoes for hubby and family, I have a half or a third or sometimes even a quarter of the potato. But this time I just really wanted the whole huge potato all for myself. So I looked up "potato" in the SP nutrition tracker.... Read more

No Excuses

Monday, May 21, 2012      9 comments

Ooops! I did it again. Got a minor injury messing a little with my big plans for strength training. Saturday as I did my Walk-Away-the-Pounds kind of moves while watching TV I tripped over my aerobic step. I couldn't quite catch myself, so I dir... Read more

Not Making That Mistake Again

Sunday, May 20, 2012      7 comments

What allowed me to succeed this time when I had battled obesity unsuccessfully for more than 5 decades? One mistake I made over and over was eating too little. I'd go on extremely calorie restricted programs. The liquid protein diet that made me... Read more

Home Challenge

I'm going to do my best strength training session at home ever today. With no car to drive to the gym, I'm taking on home ST as a challenge (with the help of SP workouts, of course). I'm going to do my ST first, as that is my focus this month, b... Read more
