Good habits I'm working to adopt: 1. only eat sitting down, especially not when cooking nor cleaning up 2. limit eating in the car to situations where the alternative is not to eat a meal 3. quit overuse of artificial sweeteners (currently... Read more
Am I Overeating Every Day?
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      13 comments

Beck* suggests that you spread out your entire planned meal in front of you before you start eating. Then you look to see if you plan to eat too much of anything and adjust. She describes the need for "visual satisfaction" that is not achieved ... Read more
Thoughts and Prayers.....

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
