Walking with Heartburn?
Friday, January 20, 2017      2 comments

I have discovered, thru trial and error, that I absolutely can not eat anything before walking. I usually walk in the wee early hours of morning before my breakfast anyway but there are days (unfortunately today was one) that I am so hungry tha... Read more

Currently our house is just a shell with a roof and most of the windows. Five windows were not included in the original shipment and we keep waiting for them to show up. Last week we met with the HVAC guy to decide where the heating and cold a... Read more
Finally feeling better

It has been 3-1/2 weeks of sickness for me. Last night was the first night in weeks that I haven't had to take a Musinex to help me sleep without coughing all night. It was a blessing that is for sure. Today I didn't take one before school ei... Read more

Going to try to recreate the long blog I finished typing and then lost. That has happened to me numerous times here on SP and I don't know how or why. I just spent way more time than I should have trying to find it but it appears to be truly l... Read more

The shingles are on the new house! It is beautiful too which is a weird thing to say for shingles. This little pause in the winter has really helped get the house back on track. Still waiting on the windows for the front of the house but all ... Read more

RunTheEdge has popped up on my facebook two years in a row. Last year I really looked hard at it but decided that I didn't want to spend the money since I was coming off an 8,000,000 step year. This year, fraught with illness and foot maladies... Read more

My sweet little Max, his photo is my meme, has been such a trouper this week. He usually doesn't sleep with us in cool weather only in hot. Don't know why that's just how he is. But this week he has been pasted to me. Not down by my feet in hi... Read more
Sick again

I have been battling a cold for the past three days and, no, I didn't win. Did nothing but sleep Tuesday and Wednesday. Yesterday I got the least amount of steps I have ever gotten - slightly over 1,000 - just from walking from my bed to the re... Read more
Christmas Lights Tour

Christmas dinner with my sisters and families yesterday evening. And yes, another carb heavy meal. Luckily this sister has a much smaller house and I was able to locate those celery sticks myself and gorge. I had a tiny square of ham since ou... Read more
The Wonders of the Headlamp

Today started out at 20 degress at 6AM. Wonderful to my eyes to see a 2 digit number finally. I was feeling lazy so I wore my PJ's out, who could tell in the dark? Put on my sweater, heavy coat, reflector vest, earphones, headlamp, hiking boo... Read more
Cold Weather
Sunday, December 18, 2016      5 comments

This cold snap is killing my walking regime. I haven't been able to walk long outside the past 3 days because it makes my chest hurt when I breath. If I keep my nose and mouth covered it subsides so I guess that would be the answer but I reall... Read more

So with the new cold wave going thru I had to get out the biggest, bulkiest coat I own. It is warm and that is really all that matters on super cold days. Over that I wear my reflector vest since I walk in the wee early hours before light shin... Read more
First Snow Day!
Monday, December 12, 2016      4 comments

Heck of a snow storm last night. No school today. DH and I attempted a walk down the road but were met with snowcovered, impassable sidewalks. At least we got down to the next apartment complex (there are many located in our area) and just w... Read more
The Beginning of Snow (ick)
Thursday, December 08, 2016      3 comments

The first of many snowstorms started my day off today. Cold winds, icy roads, not much actual snow but the weatherman keeps threatening us with "lake effect" which usually dumps more than I prefer on us. I actually don't mind snow or cold but ... Read more
Another week begins
Monday, December 05, 2016      5 comments

Ever since we moved into the apartment complex where we currently live I have lost a pound a week, once even two pounds. But last week - nothing. Didn't gain either, so that was good, but I'm a bit disappointed in that I didn't lose. I had so... Read more
