I spoke too soon!
Friday, March 16, 2012      0 comments

Way too soon! Yesterday morning I blogged that I wasn't sore from hitting infield practice for 45 mins. at DD#2's softball practice. Boy was I wrong! Around noon I started feeling stiff and a little sore and by the time I left work @ 4:00 p.m... Read more
Not sore!
Thursday, March 15, 2012      0 comments

Yesterday was DD#2's softball practice. The coach still doesn't have a clue (bless his heart!), but the girls looked pretty good. I ended up hitting to the infield for over 45 mins. It's not quite the same thing as hitting a pitch and you don... Read more
What Happened to Spring!
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      0 comments

I had my 30 min. easy run yesterday. I had to go straight from work, which I don't usually like to do because I like to leave my purse @ home (purse stolen from park while running back in October). I had a Girl Scout meeting @ 6:30, so I neede... Read more

I just completed Day 7 of my Intermediate 5K program yesterday (30 min. cross training - I did a 35 min. upper body & ab DVD). There's a 5K on Saturday that benefits a local teenager that was injured in a car wreck last summer and he's in a wh... Read more

Daylight savings time is messing me up. We made sure we set our clocks forward before going to bed Saturday night because we have to teach religious ed @ 8:45 a.m. We were there on time, but some of the teachers were late and everyone was drag... Read more
Improving my 5K
Friday, March 09, 2012      1 comments

I started my intermediate 5K training on Sunday. I hiked on Sunday, ran 30 mins. on Monday & 30 mins. on Tuesday. Yesterday was an "easy" 40 min. run. There's really nothing easy about running for 40 mins., but it actually felt pretty good. ... Read more
Race Results (Not!)

I blew off my 5K on Saturday! We had tornado warnings all through the night on Friday (spent a couple of hours in the basement) and when my DH came in from work @ 5:30 a.m., it was still pouring. They said the race would go on rain or shine, b... Read more
New Back to Maintenance Goal
Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

I decided to change the date for my "get back to maintenance" goal (somehow this sounds better than my weight loss goal). Originally I wanted to loose my 6+ lbs. by 3/31. Well since I'm not doing so well and it's already 3/2, that might be a l... Read more
5K Tomorrow!
Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

My 2nd 5k of the year is tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to this one because it starts at the park I usually run. They haven't posted a race route and I'm a little curious because I know it starts at the large pavilion and then ends at on... Read more
Health Risk Assessment
Thursday, March 01, 2012      0 comments

My husband's work has a program for their health coverage that if you (and spouse) take a health assessment, you get $25 off your monthly health care cost (per person). Last year you just had to go online and take the assessment, this year you ... Read more
Weekends are my downfall!
Monday, February 27, 2012      2 comments

I did great last week with my food tracking in my quest to get back to maintenance. And then along came the weekend! Weekends are my downfall. I think it's because I'm not doing my normal routine and I just "let myself go"! Friday's eati... Read more
All Signed Up!
Friday, February 24, 2012      0 comments

I signed up for my 2nd race of the year yesterday. It was the last day to sign up before the cost went up, so that motivated me! The race is on 3/3 - that's only a week away! This is a race I really want to do because the course is the park/gr... Read more
Maintenance Update
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      0 comments

I had a lot of good suggestions yesterday from maintenance experts. A common suggestion is to go back to what works. I've been contemplating going back to WW for the weigh-ins for the accountability, but I decided the first step is to get back... Read more
Maintenance Woes!
Tuesday, February 21, 2012      2 comments

I lost 46 lbs. last year and managed to keep it off for over 8 months. I lost my weight through Weight Watchers. I like their program and found the structure and the weekly weigh-in to work for me. I enjoyed my meetings and have to admit I li... Read more

I have 3 daughters - 16, 13 & 11. Each girl has their own personality and it makes for a very lively household! We're very blessed that they're healthy, happy and actually pretty darned smart! The oldest is very artistic and is looking ... Read more
