Training on Schedule

Saturday, July 14, 2012      15 comments

"Ran" 6 miles with my Galloway group this morning. It was a very slow run, with run one minute, walk one minute intervals. We are suppose to go the pace of the slowest runner in the group and Galloway writes that you cannot go too slow on long r... Read more

Full Life

Granddaughter, 5 year old, called at 7am asking me to drive her to day camp today at the Y. So even though I didn't plan to go today, I did. Enjoyed a 40 minute elliptical workout, plus 5 minute cool down, and then a picnic snack with the 21 m... Read more

Just when I thought....

Wednesday, July 11, 2012      14 comments

Just when I thought my only food issue was nourishing an athlete's body and training for my half marathon, an old eating pattern reared its ugly head. Guess I was just too cocky. Last night I ate like the 200+ pound person I used to be. Well, th... Read more

New Bike Group w/Pix

Sunday, July 08, 2012      14 comments

Here I am in pink with my new Sunday morning cycling group. It meets so close to my house I can ride there. I rode 12 miles this morning, including 10 with the group. Great... Read more

Moving It: Run, Car, Bike, Progress

Saturday, July 07, 2012      12 comments

Run: Did my 5 mile Galloway group run this morning starting at 6am. It felt good and I really wanted to keep running, but I know I'm not ready and could risk injury. I'll be content to build up slowly. I can hardly wait to break my personal dist... Read more

Getting Closer

Friday, July 06, 2012      11 comments

I've been doing about as well as I ever have following a food plan. Yesterday I had 2 deviations from my plan. 1. I planned according to Weight Watcher's PointsPlus. When I entered it into SP after supper and before my second snack I found ... Read more

The Big Bang

Thursday, July 05, 2012      17 comments

Nope, not the TV show. My microwave. I put a yellow squash (summer squash, crookneck squash - whatever you call them) in to cook to go with my brown rice and kidney beans and red/green bell peppers. I'd done it at least 10 times before without i... Read more

Improving My Eating Habits

Wednesday, July 04, 2012      12 comments

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.....

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
