Shortly after my last blog entry in August of 2013 I got an upper respiratory infection that lasted two months. This set back along with getting a very sedentary job has put all the weight back on I worked so hard to lose. So I am again starting... Read more

I ran 4 miles today. Two miles where a 7% grade a 1000 foot climb in the 2 miles. Granted I wasn't going fast, but I still count it as running. LOL. Running down was like resting. So I should have any trouble with a flat 4 miler race in October.... Read more

Running 2 miles

It seems I have broken my plateaus and got moving again. I will meet my first goal of 162 by my birthday in July if I can maintain my current weight loss rate. It seems bumping my calories up to about 1600 has got me moving. My previous calorie ... Read more

Creek sounds just a mile and a half to go. This walk through unplowed roads for 12 miles was a challenge for me. I have to say the last 2 miles were very difficult. Glad I did it because it shows me how far I have come. Setting difficult goals m... Read more
