Thoughts and Prayers.....

Monday, July 02, 2012      16 comments

One of my dear SparkFriends posted a blog. He bravely faced and told his SparkFriends of his tragic health news. These things are never easy. Yet, I have some experience in being with someone in person, of sharing grief and sharing unfairness an... Read more

Fun for All

Thursday, June 28, 2012      12 comments

Well, I was right. No shiner. Gwen, my 21 month DGD, has a horizontal red inch under her eye, but no other signs of the fall in the gym nursery yesterday. Today the kids wanted to go back to the Y, so we did. I got in a good strength workou... Read more

Workout Interrupted

Wednesday, June 27, 2012      15 comments

I looked up from my treadmill at the Y and saw a nursery worker in front of me. My heart definitely skipped a beat that had nothing to do with my run-induced heart rate. She assured me that Gwen (21 months old) was not badly hurt, but that she'd... Read more

Short Run & Beck Notes

Monday, June 25, 2012      10 comments

Run-walk-run: 4 miles in 50 minutes and 7 seconds today. Felt good! Very healthy eating day; met nutritional goals. Beck: Could improve meal pre-planning --more specifics than "veggie" or "fruit." Hard to claim no unplanned eating when the ... Read more

Pun Was Not on Purpose

Sunday, June 24, 2012      12 comments

I re-read the ending of my blog from yesterday, "I think this approach of building up slower will benefit me in the long run." I was talking about the Galloway group method of training for a half marathon. No, I didn't mean it as a pun, BUT... Read more

First Official Galloway Group Run

Saturday, June 23, 2012      11 comments

I was in plenty of time, before 6am. The pacegroup leaders were having a meeting when I arrived, so I got in a little walking warm up. My pace group co-leader, Mary, came to meet me 10 minutes later and to introduce me to Patty. Mary explained t... Read more

Do You Like the New Fitness Tracker?

Friday, June 22, 2012      21 comments

I think I'll like the new SparkPeople fitness tracker once I learn the proper names of all my strength training exercises and get my favorites and groups set up. The one thing I don't see is how to search when looking to update a strength traini... Read more

Can't Wait!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      10 comments

I got my e-mail assignment to a Galloway training pace group. There are a few people in Galloway training who I know well, including one I've known for 20 years, but none of them are in my group. I have met one co-leader of my group several time... Read more

Interim Goal Achieved

Saturday, June 16, 2012      14 comments

I ran with the local Galloway group for the first time since I joined the group. I walk-ran-walked over with a slow group the mile and a half to the site for the "Miracle Mile" pace test. I didn't want to tire myself out. I ran my mile with 2 sh... Read more

Thinking Like a Thin Person?

Friday, June 15, 2012      12 comments

Another good night! That's 4 in a row of 8 hours or more!! Can't remember last time I had such good sleep. I'm doing the Beck book (The Beck Diet Solution) again and this time I bought the workbook, too. There is so much good stuff in that ... Read more

Three Good Nights in a Row

Thursday, June 14, 2012      6 comments

Here's a streak I'd love to keep going: achieving 8 hours of sleep per night. I actually have my streak tracker set for 7 hours per night but rarely make a whole week. Well, this week I've started going to bed an hour earlier because I'll be doi... Read more

Another Trick for Keeping Kids Active in Sunny Summer

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      7 comments

We have a swing set that the kids love in the often nice weather of Florida winter. In the summer, though, it is only in the shade in early morning. There is just too much sun most of the day. I had tried to put up a tarp for shade and wind blew... Read more

More of Jeff Galloway

Tuesday, June 12, 2012      8 comments

I never heard of Jeff Galloway until a year ago when I started reading books about running. So, even though my Galloway Team members don't need it, I should have explained who Jeff Galloway is before I wrote my 2 previous blogs about him. He is ... Read more

Running in Balance

Monday, June 11, 2012      8 comments

One of the many things I heard Jeff Galloway say in his presentation yesterday is that running helps to get the hunger-satisfaction response in balance. What I got out of it is that running can make you hungry, that is, hungry to replace the cal... Read more

Wish I'd had a camera. Several people did take their picture with him. He was positively inspirational. No disappointment nor letdown here.He was far more than I expected in so many ways. So personable. So encouraging. So inspirational. I got th... Read more
