How Do You Find a Good Doctor?
Monday, December 03, 2012      17 comments

I got a call from my doctor's office. She is no longer accepting my health insurance. I was encouraged to change insurance providers, but as much trouble as I had getting insurance I think it makes more sense to change doctors. My current doctor... Read more
Celebrating Four Years of Effort
Sunday, December 02, 2012      31 comments

Four years ago yesterday I rejoined Weight Watchers and started on my current streak of healthy living. Oh, there have been times I have slipped. Oh, yeah. Often I've gone over my calorie range, but what I am celebrating is that I haven't quit t... Read more
Finish Celebrating & the New Pace Group
Saturday, December 01, 2012      17 comments

Love my new pace group!! I ran 10 miles with them this morning at a pace I really enjoyed, just a little bit challenging. They are also very welcoming and supportive. There were 5 of us in the group this morning, although 3 of them ran 3.7 miles... Read more
Nephew Getting Fitter!
Friday, November 30, 2012      17 comments

My nephew was in the hospital with ketoacidosis due to diabetes just over a month ago. He's 27 years old and didn't even know he was diabetic before the life-threatening incident. Since he got out of the hospital, he's become a vegan. He i... Read more
I've Been Promoted
Wednesday, November 28, 2012      24 comments

I contacted my Galloway program director and asked how fast a "miracle mile" I need to run to move up a pace group. I told him I'd run a 9:06 mile on the TM on Monday and asked if that would do it, feeling confident I could replicate that time o... Read more
The Excuse
Tuesday, November 27, 2012      19 comments

My hubby says that the reason he wasn't home yesterday for me to go get Natalie from school on time as usual is that he could not find the car in the store parking lot. The reason he couldn't find the car he says is that he didn't recognize it. ... Read more
Unexpected Functional Fitness Test

Natalie is released from Kindergarten at 3:05pm on school days and I'm to pick her up by 3:20. Well, hubby had the car and at 3 was no where around. I woke up Gwen from her nap, put her in the rickety old double stroller (the good one was in the... Read more
I Am a Runner
Sunday, November 25, 2012      30 comments

Still reveling in the accomplishment of my first half marathon. Believe it or not, but the pace group I trained with usually finish a half in 2:52-3 hours. So despite the fact that Barb could have gone faster, I'm getting a lot of congratulation... Read more

After the Half Marathon
Saturday, November 24, 2012      18 comments

Again, thanks to Barb (ONEKIDSMOM), Monty (MIRAGE727), and Darren (DSSECRETS) for a great and fun half marathon. Couldn't have done it without you -- at least not as fast and not as fun! Then it was to the beach for a week of family fun: ... Read more

Confident Running
Thursday, November 15, 2012      26 comments

I just finished my last training run before my first HM, the St Pete Women's Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov 18th. Although it wasn't a particularly fast workout nor particularly long one, it did help build confidence. I woke up not feeling quite ... Read more
It's SAD
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      19 comments

Did you know that the acronym for the Standard American Diet is SAD?? It does make me sad that there is so little good food readily available at local restaurants, in friend's homes, and events in our area. My son-in-law is only 31 years o... Read more

Just checked the latest on the weather for my first half marathon and the predicted weather has gone down a couple degrees. We are now expected to have a low of 57 degrees and high of 67 degrees on Sunday the 18th. The wind is predicted to be 9 ... Read more
Not the Way I Intended to Spend Today
Monday, November 12, 2012      19 comments

You won't believe this. It's true. Somehow after changing plans repeatedly, my hubby went to his alma mater's football game. I didn't want to drive him again to the airport, so he parked the car at the airport. He flew out of Tampa. So far ... Read more
