Today is my son's birthday. He turned 23 and I've spent the day thinking of many great memories of him. Must be an age thing (me not him).
So, I had a friend tell me they missed my blogs. She is thinking that it is because it is summer and everybody is doing so much in the summer. That is not the case at all. By the time I get done entering in on my trackers and visiting the threads I am on and my friend's blogs, it is late and time for me to go home or I really need to do more at work. I have prioritized what I want to accomplish here at SP and blogs everyday isn't very high. Being involved in my teams and reading friends blogs are very high on my list.

I am not sure what I'm doing wrong other than not moving enough and eating too much. Still no budging the scale except the wrong way.
Last night, I went on the treadmill and decided at the spur of the moment to run a 5k, what the heck... I'm already at 2.2 so what's another 1.1 mile right?
Mostly because I've been inconsistently training for one and secondly I wanted to see my time. I was slower than my last race but I didn't have anyone watching me and I didn't have anyone with me to help me go faster.
I know, theoretically that one hour of exercise should get me losing but doing that hour is the hard part. I found that I am creeping up on the weight too. (not reflected in ticker.... I've left that unless it goes up ten pounds)Silly but psychologically I don't want to.
Well...other than that (haha) I'm doing just wonderful..... just fine

    Feeds are better 'n' blogs.

    Strange that a food word is used to describe the event stream.

    You are doing just fine, my old friend! You continue to inspire everyone. I too have been slacking so to speak. For some reason, I am having a hard time with the heat and humidity this year.

    And I have just come to realize, I AM IN A RUT! Apparently, when I am in a rut, I beat myself up about everything. Not enough exercise, chili cheese fries, you name it, it has slapped me in the face.

    Good for you taking on a 5K. That is a rut buster! And you know there are a ton of people out there cheering you on! The new attitude will bring you success! I have not doubt!

    Happy birthday to your son! You both look wonderful!

    Anne, happy belated bday to your son. Now I want to tell you something. When I joined this team and SP back in mid-March, I used to visit you (your page that is..lol) as it was always inspiring me to read your blogs and your messages on our board. I'm not exactly sure why but every time I was dragging my feet and needed to re-focus rather than giving up, I'd visit you. I've also nominated you couple of times because it helped me so much.
    So I'm very glad to have read your blog and to inspire you. I believe in you. I know you can do this. If your body needs more time to 'slack off' then give it more time without sigh or fighting it. Then when your body and your mind are in agreement, only then re-focus and re-set your goals if necessary and get back on track. You'll be more successful than struggling it.
