FL recap (photo intensive!)

Here's a view from the "key" (island) -- well, very small key -- where I ran a couple of times in the rain. The second time in a pretty good thunderstorm. There were ... Read more
BRRRRR. Seriously?

It is snowing. I kid you not. 80s yesterday; 30s today. But that happened occasionally in TX & it's not supposed to stay this cold. It's actually coming down pretty good, altho hubby said he couldn't see it at work. We met up for lunch toda... Read more
Mission accomplished

Had a nice run along the water yesterday. I haven't been tracking mileage or pace, but I guestimated 4 miles & it looks like I was right (DH checked it out on google maps later while he was trying to figure out how far we'd walked). There w... Read more
Were you tired during the change?
Monday, October 24, 2011      3 comments

I'm guessing that's what's going on . . . TOM was 2 weeks late this month & that has never happened before, altho it's been unpredictable for a while now. For months I've been tired. Not overwhelmingly tired & since there's no other sympto... Read more
Some marathon tales

We've made our way down to the southernmost tip of the US (that's Key West) & I'm actually blogging poolside. Looks like it will be a much nicer day than initially forecast - much appreciated since most of the weather in miami really sucked. ... Read more
Shouldn't HE be saying that?

Yesterday was one of the more formal dinners & I wore a form fitting dress. And my husband's boss's wife (got that?) told me I looked hot in it! We've met a few times at these sorts of things & toured a bit together when we were in Prague, but n... Read more
Faith & thank God for wool socks

Despite the truly miserable weather today, I decided to head out on a run. I wanted to check out some other parks & an outdoor shopping area. Well, I never found where I was supposed to turn & I didn't like the looks of the neighborhood & decide... Read more
There's always something to like

I wanted to be slimmer before I went on vacation. Well, I want lots of things in life, but they don't always happen. No matter how hard you try. I already assume I'll gain at least a couple of pounds - I don't slack off on exercise & I try to ea... Read more
This time I chose the rain
Monday, October 17, 2011      8 comments

When I asked the concierge about nearby running trails, he loomed at me like I had 3 heads. Either he thought I couldn't possibly be a runner, or no one runs in the rain, or he's just really bad at his job. He did eventually cone up with a sugge... Read more
Why is SHE so hard on herself?

I bet you have them: the spark buddies who are at goal & look like they have it made - they look great. they seem to be able to eat in ways you can't & still maintain that "perfect" body. But they don't seem happy; they're still picking their bo... Read more
A 2 breakfast day
Friday, October 14, 2011      5 comments

Already had my oatmeal; planning pancakes as second breakfast cause I didn't get them before my long run yesterday - mostly because I didn't initially plan a long run yesterday. It's been a busy week & I really wasn't quite sure where I was... Read more
An almost aha moment
Thursday, October 13, 2011      7 comments

So yesterday for lunch I had a home made black bean burger. First time I had it I tried to used romaine lettuce instead of bread, but the leaves weren't big enough & frankly it didn't work too well. Yesterday I just plopped it down on the p... Read more
Weight loss is like falling leaves
Wednesday, October 12, 2011      7 comments

2 in one week! I was sitting here this morning, thinking how pretty the changing leaves looked. Just as we look so good when we lose weight; and even more important, how good we FEEL when we lose weight. But it's work that has to be ke... Read more
Hurts so good
Monday, October 10, 2011      7 comments

Yup, my back is really feeling yesterday's workout - in a good way. It's a good sore; the sore that lets you know you've worked your body. I suspect it was actually the swimming. It's been 4 months since I swam. I wasn't swimming hard, usin... Read more
Has she ever heard of turbo fire?

I went to the rec center I'm thinking of joining (seriously, it's not just a gym, it's sort of a family center). Man, I feel so good . . . it's been a really long time since I swam. Not since Vegas. I tried out a class. Now, I must say I d... Read more
