I put together a little tea party for my sweet gd, Ziva. We had such fun. She is 2 3/4 now and so much fun. Usually we play lots of games, go to aquarium, children's museum, park, zoo, etc. This was such a fun little departure. I have a swe... Read more
I did it! ... 5k
Monday, September 24, 2012      6 comments

Though I found out later that the course was actually a bit short, I am still thrilled to have completed the event. I jogged about 80% of the race. I probably could have walked it in about the same time, but was so happy to have been able to j... Read more

Some combination of walking and jogging will get me to the finish. This will be my first race ever. Even when I was able to run before ms stole so many things, I never ran a race. My 9 y.o. gs is also in this event. He will have a long wait ... Read more

Hit all my nutrient ranges. Walked/jogged 40 minutes on treadmill for a little over 2 miles. Won't win any trophies with this, but not having been able to run for about 25 years made this special. Before ms messed with my body and mind I love... Read more
5K or Bust!

I registered with my 9 year old grandon for my first 5K in many years. He just beat out all the kids in his class in the mile a couple of days ago. He ran an amazing 6:45. Reminds me so much of his mom. She ran, and won, her first 5k at his... Read more

Today's adventure with my two gandsons was 36 holes of miniature golf. I hadn't played in years and it was their first time at 7 and 9. It was a hot, hot day, but we really had a lot of fun. This whole summer has been filled with adventures w... Read more

Monday, July 30, 2012      3 comments

I get so discouraged when I read about those amazing Sparks losing lots of weight in some pretty amazingly 'speedy' ways. My own progress has been really slow. However, when I look back I see there has actually been progress. I can exercise l... Read more

It was too hot to exercise outdoors yesterday so I hit the gym, did some weights and finally succeeded in going an hour on the elliptical. Now, I hope to replicate that often and set it for a more challenging setting. We'll see how it goes ove... Read more
