Life in the Maintenance Lane
I was writing this brilliant blog (LOL) about how I found my inner jock, when it disappeared in front of me. Oh, well. So much has happened, I'll just stick to my usual updates of my life in the maintenance lane:
* First, I have water!! The... Read more
Surprised and Not Surprised
Just 6 days of really good eating at the bottom of my maintenance calorie range and I registered a loss of 5.6 pounds at Weight Watchers today. I went from last Saturday weighing the most I'd weighed in 2.5 years to today being my lowest weigh-i... Read more
Keeping Up Energy Or Making Excuses??
Another good healthy eating day yesterday, hitting all the nutritional goals I track (calories, carbs, fat, protein, sodium, fiber, calcium).
Despite the fact that I am just eating at the bottom of my maintenance calorie range, it didn't t... Read more

Quick Updates for Close SparkFriends
* Went 4.5 miles on TM today, running 3.1 miles of it. If the TM was calibrated correctly I ran my fastest 5K ever, 27:30. For my age group, to qualify for the national senior games 5K you have to run 27:21 or under. Who knows? I just might ach... Read more

The first time I lost 60 pounds it took me 9 months to lose it and 3 months to gain it back. I was 16 years old and I doubt if I even maintained my loss for a week.
On December 1, 2008, when I started my current effort to control my weight... Read more

Is "Not Terrible" a Good Thing??
I ran with my Galloway group this morning, a casual run-walk-run of 4 miles. We sat around and drank coffee for a while, drippping sweat in the shade on this muggy, muggy morning.
Then I was feeling like more, so I went to the YMCA, jumped ... Read more
Enjoyed a good treadmill run at the YMCA today. Training for my half marathon in 11 weeks and 3 days is right on track. I dropped Natalie off at kindergarten on the way. Gwen (23 months) is healthy and has no problem with the Y nursery. Althoug... Read more

New Personal Distance Record
This morning I finished a Galloway group run-walk-run, completing 10.2 miles. My previous longest was 9 miles. Three times I'd gotten to nine miles and either got sick or had a minor injury and had to back off. Not this time. I ended up feeling ... Read more
The plan was -- ahumm, ahumm -- for me to go visit my mom in South Dakota and come back to a remodeled kitchen. Well, to tell you the truth, I strongly suspected it would not be finished and, boy, was I right.
Right now there are no bottom... Read more
