It was a quiet one for me.

I am ready to run. Will be making it a long one to start the year in the early evening.

Happy New Year all!
Bobby and I did our 5k (well..I just walked..it started to snow and ice towards the end) with other sparkers. I am tired now but all snuggly in my jammies and hoping I can stay awake until 12.

Happy New Year's Eve all! I just took a quick little nap and now passing a few hours before heading out for a NYE party. Regardless of my back/butt pain I've decided I'm going to attempt a run tomorrow. I can't make it much worse, I figure. Tomorrow will also be a day spent in the kitchen getting all my healthy foods in order so I can kick of Wednesday with the right start and meet some goals in what is sure to be a great 2013!!

Cheers! emoticon

Well I came home and did some time on the exercise bike and a bit of ST. I know I will eat too much junk tonight but at least I got some exercise in. All my fat jeans are too small.

Good morning all!

Headed out in a little bit to pick up New Years Day food. My family is coming up - I volunteered to host the annual pork and sauerkraut feast. I hope you all have a wonderful New Years! Looks like lots of us are ringing it in with a run.

So my out of control eating has lead to weight gain. I put on my "fat" jeans this morning and they were too small. Sigh!!!! No scale confirmation of this but I am back to where I started this whole journey three years ago. Sigh!!! But baby steps. I did walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes and I did manage to not eat an afternoon snack. So I will just keep at the the baby steps.

Good luck to everyone who is racing for New Years. I have to work a half day tomorrow then we will go to a friend's house in the evening.

Sounds like a fun NYE Cari. Paul & I are doing the Resolution Run 5k then going out with our running group for dinner and a movie. It's going to be the first NYE that I'll be out AND without kids in about 4 years. The last one was just after Glen & I broke up in 2008. Yay us!

Anne - I am doing the PeepsFest 5K and a giant Peep (the marshmallow thing) is getting dropped at 5:15. I am thrilled - I can celebrate New Years early and head back to my jammies. I am so lame on New Years...

So, it no longer hurts to take a deep breath but now, my sinuses hurt. Yuck. Yesterday, while I was at work, it started snowing. Not an unusual event in NH in the winter.... Anyway, after work, there was only about 3-4 inches of fresh snow. Not a big deal until I got to the big hill. Let's say that DH has 4-wheel drive and I don't. Left my car in a parking lot overnight and DH brought me home. Only took 2.5 hours to make a 10 mile trip. Dinner was almost at 10 last night. Sheesh. Anyway, today, LOTS of wind and blowing snow. Still feeling kinda yucky so I did not exercise, again.
Happy running Rooks. and nice to see new, "old" faces here:)

Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Carrie, so happy you are enjoying the snow! Have fun at your 5k.

Anne, take a break already, will ya!! I'm looking forward to your text. Are you doing the New Years 5k or did you decide to bag it?

I'm feeling much more upbeat today. I know there is a light at the end of this tunnel. At least there is a glimmer in horizon :)

I ran 6.3 miles today and it was MUCH better then my 10 on Friday. I only have 1.4 miles to go to reach 100 miles this month. I'm just over the 900 mile mark for the year too.
It's a far cry from my 1200+ miles last year but I'm good with it.

Have a great Sunday!!

Morning all!
Carrie-I am with you. I have a 5k tomorrow also. Bobby and I (along with LynnAnn and Frances and JoPagh) do this cool race every year. It is a German new years eve celebration so the race then food and fun with fireworks at the end. All is over by 8 ish (German new year is at 6 ish our time) so then you can go home and celebrate by going to other parties if you like. Bobby and I however, just crash at home..we are old :) Anyway, with the bronchial issues I have been having I will be walking a good portion if not all of this 5k.
Suezette-you know I have been praying for you! Hang in there girl. I will text you sometime.

So I am wheezing like crazy this morning. Probably all the dust from taking the decorations down coupled with the infection. *sigh* Tired of all this!
Lots of snow here from the last week. Not sure of the totals but Bobby has used the snow blower multiple times!
Have a great day runners!

Good morning all!

I am actually dressed in my gym clothes. It's been over a week. I'm signed up for a 5K tomorrow afternoon, and I have a feeling a lot of it is going to be walking.

We got quite a bit of snow and it looks beautiful! Have a super day.

I haven't made my New Years Goals yet either. I haven't had much heart to think about much lately. Oh, I'm still running 3-4 times a week and I'm very close to 100 miles this month.
But eating is out of control. It's mostly emotional/stress eating. LUCKILY, I have yet to gain any weight.

Only a few people know, but I have been having a lingering medical problem.
I had a biopsy done on Friday. I was also put on a much stronger medicine.
Wednesday I have an ultrasound appt. By Friday I should have the results of everything.
I really need some answers. The not knowing is the worst!

In the next couple days, I will sit down and write my goals.
This way, when the doc gives me the GOOD NEWS (yes, I am staying positive!!), I will be ready to hit the ground running !!

Happy New Year My SparkFriends!!

Renee!!! Hi girl! I am so with you with getting back on track. I need to take a few pounds off and get back to eating less junk. Let's do this!

We are all ready to make 2013 the best..right Rookies!?

I un-decorated the house (inside) today. This bronchitis/pneumonia has kicked my butt and all I seem to do is sleep (and work). But today I decided to accomplish something so I put lots of stuff away. I am wiped out now but enjoying my glass of wine.

Have a great evening all!

I'm back on SP, so I thought I'd jump in & start pestering some of you both here & on Facebook! It snowed 4+ more inches last night, so I decided to start working on my 2013 fitness & nutrition goals as I'm waiting for the roads to be plowed. I can't wait for 2012 to be over & am looking forward to a fresh start in the new year.

I am with you on being done with 2012. The last quarter of it my world kind of caved in when I finally realized our true finacial situation. But I am positive 2013 will bring in some great changes. Getting back to exercising is my first goal. My second goal is to learn a new quilting technique. Possibilities people they are out there. LOL!!!

Been MIA again. We certainly had a white Christmas here. About 3' of the white stuff and it keeps coming. Hopefully we'll get a reprieve over the next week.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm ready to put 2012 behind me. Working through Sciatica issue right now. I keep telling myself I'll be healed by next Wednesday and ready to run and actually get out and enjoy this snow.

Cheers!

Sheesh. I am working tomorrow and then off for another 3 days. I am excited to just have time to lounge!
Any clif notes?

Hi! I think my headache is from too much sugar...these cookies have.got.to.go! Thanks to me...they're going quickly.
We got a bunch of snow today-thankfully, I got in a 4 mile run beforehand. :) I also picked up the family Christmas gift: a Nordictrack exercise bike!! some of the boys have been asking for one so they'd better use it! And I plan on using it occasionally, as well. I'm not one to excercise inside, but sometimes, it's necessary.
Still feeling great-the baby is growing as told by the size of my belly. SIL told me I finally look pregnant! LOL! 24 weeks along~only 4 months (or less) to go!!!! Can't wait to meet the little one.
This weekend will be busy with Jacob's hockey tournament about an hour away...still don't know if I'll get a hotel room for one night...hate spending the $ but it will save some travelling. Hubby will be home with other kids and high school hockey.
That's it , I guess. OH-what's ya'll's opinion (if any) of the Ninja blender and Nutribullet? Are they the same thing, essentially? I got the Ninja for Christmas but see the NB is awesome,too . Haven't used this Ninja yet and could get some $ back ...just feel like this one he got me is overkill(it's the one with the dough kneader,etc)

Good morning all!

I hope you all had a beautiful holiday with your friends and family. I am finally feeling like part of the land of the living, so hubs and I are going out grocery shopping today. His parents are coming up on Friday morning - supposed to come today, but we're supposed to get some snow (yay!) so Friday it is. Gives me some extra time to relax and clean up from Christmas.

Hey all,

I hope you all have an AMAZING Christmas!!!

I took Don to the hospital yesterday morning...he will be staying there for as long as it takes...pnemonioa is the diagnosis;...his fever is stupid bad....he can't get anymore chemo until we beat this one down.

Anyhow, I am PRAYING that my kidlets are ok tomorrow...they are sleeping with me (if I can get to sleep), so in 5 minutes i will move my bootie to the bedroom:)

Hugs and love - have a wonderful sleep!!!

Trish

Christmas with my family is done. So glad I only see my one brother once a year. A few hours in his company is all I can take. But as we were leaving town we saw a bald eagle fly up out of a field with something in his talons. Plus there was still another one sitting in the field. It was very cool and I wish we could have stopped to look at them but stopping on the freeway is not encouraged. LOL!!!!

Good afternoon. Quilting project almost done. I and everyone else in the state today was at the grocery store. Check out clerk was so nice even though I had to pay with gift card, cash and check card and there was a huge line. I am so happy for the gift card I was given. Would have been pretty tricky buying everything with out it. Tried to nap this afternoon and couldn't. No football or any other sporting event to be found on tv. LOL!!!

Trish, I think about you a lot! Big hugs!

I ran 20 miles yesterday. The weather was nice and cool with really low humidity and dew point!! Even the 18mph winds didn't seem to bother me even though they slowed me down. It was a great run!

Congratulations to Liz on her first 10K, and to Rich for his 1000+ miles in 2012.

I am feeling a tad overwhelmed, by my lack of uninvolvement here with our team lately. I took on more responsibility at work in June, and it is kicking my butt. I just am not feeling the love to be on the computer as much as I used to, once I get home at night.

We are staying home for Christmas this year (well, home as in my hubby's parents, but we aren't travelling). Hope everyone is almost ready for their holidays, however you celebrate.

And welcome to the brave new world! The days are getting longer now (in the northern hemisphere), so that's always a good turning point for me!

Hey everyone! Me back again for a check in:);) Don isn't doing well this week, he has manged to get a virus from us - so it is a game of STAY AWAY FROM THE GERMS in our house:)

We had the Christmas concerts this week....many of you know that I play piano for the choir at the kidets school....I got to listen to the concert 4 times this week:) For WHATEVER reason, I couldn't manage to make the first 4 bars of the first song work....DANG....seriously, I play them SOOO MANY TIMES!!! The last concert was great....it all clicked...both kidlets performances were amazing!

Gotta go back to Joshy for a wee bit. He is having a really tough time with Don... He needed to do a project for school that was a "how to" one. The kidlets can do anything that is giving directions...the output was an oral presentation.

I gave Monkey the idea that he could do a "minecraft" craft - not sure how many of you know what that is, but most kidlets here LOVE It.

He managed to cut 81 1X1 cubes of wood, glue them together in a specific design, paint them in the correct manner, and present them to his class today.

His teacher (she taught Miss as well), was super impressed - I told Josh that I didn't think that she had, in all her years of teaching, seen a project this involved...

His class gave him a standing ovation - Mommy is so proud!!!

Hugs to you all:)

Trish

Rich, I did Goofy last year. Plus I did the full the year before. Disney races are expensive so not sure when I will do Marathon Weekend again. I still would like to do the Princess and Wine and Dine at some point.

I really wish I'd get email updates from this dumb site. I get the occasional blog notice..but none from this thread. :(
Looks like eveyrone is doing well!! All is well here outside I'm starting to flip out with so much to do and not time to do it. Still need to bake cookies,goodies,etc. And figure out and find gifts for a few hard to buy for people and pick up DD from college tomorrow and clean the house and buy some food for the big family shindig on Monday...
I ran yesterday-just 3 miles and it was ROUGH! I was so tired from kids waking me up and then my body won't let me go back to sleep. I've been running regularly and loving it. have cut way back on sugar and junk and I think I've lost weight. that's okay! I know I'm growing a baby but I'm eating lots of healthy fats and veggies and proteins. Just cutting out the extra cwap. I've had one sick girl for 3 days...fever only. Hope she' s well enough to go to Grandma's today b/c I HAVE to get some errands done!
Sorry-my usual book posting. :( Hugs to ya'll!!!!

Good evening. Volunteered to make two quick quilts for work before Xmas Eve. Because I can't read a calender. LOL!!! I thought I had more time then I do. Number 1 is easy and is on the table being pinned together. Could have it done by tomorrow. #2 for an older girl who likes goth. Bit puzzled but hopefully something will click.

Hi. I am tired of the rain and fog. I like running when its cold and when it rains. However, I hate running in the cold rain! The fog makes it too dangerous to run on the roads and there are no trails near by. So, I baked goodies for a bake sale at work. Maybe tomorrow....... or the next day.
Rich, woot woot! You will easily make 1000 miles:)



Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Was on the treadmill while I watched the Vikings game yesterday. Even ran a quarter of a mile. It didn't go to badly even if it was slow. I was happy with how much stamina I have remaining. Just have to keep working at it.

Hey Liz well done and a big woohoo - great feeling to finish your first 10k

I am counting down today plus 3 and its Vacation time for me. Not a lot happening but 2 weeks of no work will make me a happy happy camper.
