Is "Not Terrible" a Good Thing??

Saturday, September 01, 2012      18 comments

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

Wise Choices

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

Today it was 20 miles for me by bike!! There were 5 of us -- 3 Weight Watchers and 2 husbands. (Husbands not pictured.) Wish my hubby would have been there, too, but glad I... Read more

New Personal Distance Record

Saturday, August 25, 2012      23 comments

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

Kitchen Challenge

Wednesday, August 22, 2012      14 comments

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

I'm Baaaack!!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      18 comments

I'm back and back at it. The visit to see my mom in the assisted living facility wasn't easy, but I'm very glad I went. Also glad to report the scale showed no change, despite days of undereating and days of overeating -- guess it all balanced o... Read more

I Will Catch Up!

Saturday, August 11, 2012      19 comments

Oh, I didn't even want to blog about it. Can't believe I did it. But yes, I did. Thursday morning I knocked a casserole dish full of chili off the second shelf of the refrig around bleary-eyed 6:30am. It hit my right foot and shattered between m... Read more

Flexibility Needed

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      16 comments

Just got back from the Y. Met DSIL there and gave him the kids before my workout. I will be glad when Gwen is well enough to go back to the nursery, since morning workouts are my favorites. But at least Gwen doesn't feel bad; she just has a run... Read more

Inspired and Cheering

Monday, August 06, 2012      11 comments

Inspired by Aquagirl and her dedicated homemaking efforts detailed in great blogs, I tackled a chore I'd been putting off for a long, long time. Let's just say that 5 year old Natalie now knows what a dust bunny is and can attest that there are ... Read more

Blue Sky Day

Sunday, August 05, 2012      12 comments

I rode with the cycling group this morning a little over 14 miles. I'm spoiled as group leader Cindy usually posts the picture she takes immediately, but I don't see it today on FaceBook. There may be some technical glitch. There were 5 of us to... Read more

Motivating Run

The Award Junkie in me just loved this picture and needed to share it: I "ran" 3.1 miles this morning starting at 5am. I think it took us 52 minutes. Our group was a 6... Read more

Happy Surprise

Friday, August 03, 2012      22 comments

Hubby came home from the doctor. He had lost 12 pounds in last six months. I said that I was sorry I hadn't noticed, and he said not to worry, he had absolutely no idea he'd lost any weight. So here I've been ranting (mostly here on SP) that he ... Read more

Here's another picture of Tuesday's yoga class. I'm in teal (aqua?) toward the far wall. For the Polk County Team, the location is the Unity Chapel across the street from the small Publix on 540A not far from my home. Classes are on Tuesday and ... Read more

Here's the picture that got my attention: I had planned a gentle walk for my exercise Tuesday, but my Living, Losing, and Loving It group was going to yoga. Can't say ... Read more
