    Home safe and sound and gradually recovering. Daughter is doing OK. Finally found son-in-law will have surgery on his ankle. Was hoping we would find out while I was there but it is what it is. Daughter will handle it She is doing better each day. Was hard for her to see me leave...but she is ... Read more

  • Here We Go Again

    9/23/2014 11:24:52 AM, by EBTBALD4

    I sound like a broken record, but I am trying this again. I will admit that my heart isn't in it fully, but my goal for now is to be honest and at least admit the good, the bad, and the ugly of my eating habits. I feel that if I can be honest with myself with what I do eat, then I will be able to ... Read more

  • Heading home Wednesday

    9/21/2014 11:08:15 PM, by STALEYK

    What a blessing this time has been. I have enjoyed being with my daughter son in law and grandson! It has been time to relax, recharge and feel needed. It's been a good break after resigning from my job where I didn't feel valued. Have enjoyed these precious moments here in Florida but they can ... Read more

  • I dream of maintenance

    9/21/2014 1:53:35 PM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    There have been some great blogs about maintenance showcased recently. One person said that you will achieve maintenance when you reach your goal, because what you need to do to maintain your goal is how you got there. Convoluted perhaps, and it makes sense to me. This is one of the reasons I cho... Read more

  • Toe Troubles

    9/20/2014 1:46:50 PM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    Here's a picture of the offending toe. Doesn't look like much, and its been the bane of my exercise existence for years! Of course the more I walk, the more irritated it gets.... Read more

  • About that Ten Percent

    9/19/2014 12:44:14 PM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    I'm fixated on the ten percent thing. I'd never really thought about it before, but then, I'd never really read about running before either. I have a blister. Its a mother of a blister, and its keeping me from running or walking more than usual, and its all because of the 10 percent. I train... Read more

  • I finished my first 5K race

    9/13/2014 8:34:18 PM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    Hello Again, I finished the race today. I didn't run the whole thing, there was quite a bit of walking done, and that's okay. This was in Kona, Hawaii, and I didn't get out of the starting gate until almost 9 am. It was already in the 90s at that point, and there was no shade to be had anywh... Read more

    Daug hter battling mastitis second time. Went to dr and we decided to extend my time here to make sure she gets through this without another relapse. Hubby rescheduled flight home for sept 24... Read more

  • My Brain caught up with my stupidity

    9/6/2014 1:26:47 PM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    I realized this morning that when I did my last run I doubled my distance, from 1.5 miles to 3. I'm guessing that's why I didn't feel very well yesterday trying to do it again. Apparently I still think I'm 20-something. Isn't it Galloway that suggests that you improve your distance 10% at a t... Read more

  • I don't know where the time went

    9/5/2014 12:57:41 AM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    I realized yesterday that I only had 4 runs left before the race, and that I'm not going to be running the whole thing. I finished Week 8 Day 1 today, with a bit of a change. First, I warmed up with a 15 minute walk instead of just a 5 minute walk. Then, I added another 20 minute walk onto th... Read more

  • Tomorrow Starts Week 8

    9/4/2014 3:59:22 AM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    I'm excited to be starting Week 8 tomorrow! What I'm not excited about, is the distance I've been covering during my runs. C25K is telling me that I'm running 2.25 or 2.5 miles, and when I use a running ap with GPS, I've only covered a mile and a half. So, since I'm running a 5K a week from ... Read more

  • New Research Just Posted on Low Carb Diets

    9/2/2014 3:10:42 AM, by ARTISTSBRUSH

    02/health/low-carb-vs-low-
    fat-diet.html?smid=fb-share Definitely food for thought. I spend most of my time in the higher fat, low carb camp. It was hard to find numbers, and it was mentioned that they thought of a diet 40% fa... Read more
