As we were doing school today, I had to sit and giggle when I realized something that I never noticed before. My children all have a different name that they call me. My Rebekah calls me Madre. My Christopher calls me Ma (one syllable is... Read more

As I mentioned before in my last blog, I really haven't done any form of work-out in over a week. Tonight I was back at it. I was able to run/walk 5 miles in 57 minutes and I SOOOOOO needed it. I feel SOOOOOO much BETTER now. It truly is ama... Read more

I finally got the opportunity to use the track at the park where my oldest dear daughter has softball practice. I walked two miles with my two other daughters on their bikes, and my youngest two boys "running" to keep up with me! It was 80 and... Read more

I DID IT! I completed it in 31.37 minutes. Not my best time, but for some reason I felt kind of sluggish at first. However, I did the rest of my run for a total of five miles and did much better with a finishing time of 55.15 minutes. I actu... Read more

Yes, Camelot is our new lab/border collie mix puppy. He's ten weeks old and EXTREMELY well behaved. I've always had dogs/puppies growing up, but I've never had one behave this well so young. He has white on all for paws, his belly, chin and o... Read more

Today on the way to my sons' dentist appointments, we had the radio on (always set to K-Love!.) They were sharing a testimony of a woman that had lost173 pounds and Curves had waived a fee of some sort because she had lost so much. She had cal... Read more

The "off" feeling I've had for about a week, that is. I've been praying about it and really couldn't explain it, but whatever "IT" was is gone and I'm back to my energized, non-stop busyness! Woo-Hoo! And I LOVE IT! Thank you, LORD!... Read more

For those faithful Spark friends that have been following my attempt at being a's something I've learned. Though I accomplished a goal of running a 5K in under 30 minutes, my body was telling me that I was pushing things too hard... Read more
Mixing it up
Thursday, March 31, 2011      12 comments

I'm sorry, but ever since I started with SparkPeople four years ago, I can never seem to stick to a specific workout routine. I have to mix it up or I get bored. Even with training for this 5K, on my off days I add inclines and do sprints. On... Read more

Where to start....okay, I didn't run on Saturday due to a wedding that I attended/helped with. Sunday, I wound up taking a two hour nap in the afternoon, so that killed my time then. So I did run yesterday. ... Read more
