the dreaded "second time around hill"!!! Which comes back around after about mile 2 in my 3.1 mile run. In the past, I would have to walk up that hill. The past 3 times, I've trudged up the hill without stopping. I'm not sure if I would actual... Read more
Oh the humidity!

North Georgia has been experiencing major heat & humidity. Yes, it's July and it's always hot in July, but we've been having 90+ since late May. I started a running program back in April when it was a nice, pleasant (70+/-), even at 6:00 p.m. ... Read more

Well we completed our second 5K on Saturday. This was a small race with only about 185 people and some of those did the 10K. I improved my time by over a minute! I completed it in 36:29! My sister finished in 33+ - she was #1 in our division... Read more
Why Isn't this Getting Easier?

My sister and I asked ourselves that question last night after we ran our 3.1 miles. Keep in mind, it was my best time ever! We ran our route a little differently and I reached my nemesis the "second time around hill" a little later in the run... Read more
Another 5K

My 15 yr. old DD was not happy with her time at our 5K on 6/4 (the first for both of us). She said she "choked". So, we registered for one on 6/18, so now I have my motivation at least for a couple more weeks! Been going to the park where we ... Read more

After 9 weeks of "training" with a C25K program at our local park, Saturday was race day! I finished my first 5K in 37:37. I was pretty pleased with the time. Running the past couple of weeks has been very hard. North Ga. is in the middle of... Read more
Lifetime & A Mile!

Last night I made Lifetime @ Weight Watchers. I maintained my goal for 6 weeks and am now considered a Lifetime member. I actually stayed 1 lb. below my goal, so I was happy about that after my out-of-town/Mother's Day food fest! 6 weeks of m... Read more

Wednesday is my 6th week of maintenance with WW. I was hoping that I would be within my goal and will become a Lifetimer. I'm still hoping, but a little concerned. I was out of town last Wed - Fri. at a training seminar for work. I made some... Read more

I just weighed in last night for my 4th week of maintenance with WW. I stayed the same and am still 1 lb. below my goal weight, so I'm good. 2 more weeks and I'll be a Lifetimer! I must admit, it was a little disappointing to not loose, even ... Read more

3 weeks of maintenance with WW has been interesting. The first 2 weeks, I lost another 2lbs. At weigh in last night, I gained 1 lb. This still leave me below my goal weight - so I'm o.k. with it. I don't, however, want to go over my goal we... Read more

I reached my goal on 3/31. The first week of maintenance I lost .8 lbs. WI is tonight, so we'll see. With WW, you're supposed to add 5 P+ for maintenance. I was a little hesitant to do that right away, so I've been slowly adding them in. Wh... Read more

Finally! I reached my Goal! After 6+ months, I reached my Weight Watchers goal! I lost 40.6 lbs. I get a little surprised even now that I actually had to loose that much just to get comfortably within my healthy range. I now have 6 w... Read more

I had a great WI last week and lost 2 lbs. Finally! I'm 1.6 lbs. away from goal. These last 5+ lbs. have really enjoyed their time with me, but it's time to see them go. I have my WI tonight and of course I'm stressing!! I'm very happy with... Read more

I had my WI last night @ WW. I went down .8. What's a girl gotta do to loose a pound! The past 5 weeks I've only lost 1.8 lbs. I'm still 3.6 lbs. away from goal. I've been thinking of all kinds of ways to get there (and most of them are not... Read more
