Glad I Did It All
I'm sitting here tired, but feeling good. I ran 4.5 miles with my Galloway group (run 1 minute, walk 1 minute intervals) this morning and then went to the Y. I did 12 strength training exercises, 4 primarily core, 4 upper body and 4 lower body. ... Read more
I just read a blogger who states she only blogs when she has something significant to say. It was a great blog. I'm glad she posted it. But I like to post even very mundane events and thoughts.
Why do I want to blog the mundane? Could it be... Read more
Pix of Jersey and NYC
I finally got brave enough to step on the scale today and did not gain from my trip. Hooray for me!!
My stepdaughter took lots of pictures. The ones she's posted to FaceBook do not have me in them, but you can still see a lot of the places ... Read more
Keeping It Going
The trip was great. Wicked was a wonderful choice of Broadway play for our group that included 11 people, ages 12 to 71. It was a delightful production. We rode trains and subways from the Jersey shore to NYC with very little problem, which sur... Read more
Maybe I'll Blog about My Trip Tomorrow....
A friend made a comment a couple weeks ago, but I find myself still thinking about it. When I told her that every finisher gets a medal at the Women's Half Marathon I'm running on Nov 18th, she didn't think that was good. She thought medals shou... Read more
Adventures in Cooking and Cycling
Last eve I attended an Adventures in Cooking party. I honestly don't know if this is something nationwide or just something the group named locally, but everyone was suppose to bring an unusual dish and make something they'd never made before.

Training on Schedule
"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
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
Thanks, SparkFriends, for all the support and great advice I got on my blog yesterday and several very helpful SparkMail contacts. You rock!! I am back on track, recommitted, and feeling strong. I would love to never overeat again, but I know I ... Read more
Just when I thought....
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
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
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
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
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
