Avoiding Candy
Friday, May 06, 2011      3 comments

I haven't been active on Sparkpeople for over a year. I have not entered a blog entry since 2009. It's hard to believe, but time has definitely gotten away from me. In 2010 I started a new business where I sell handcrafted jewelry and station... Read more

Imagine my surprise when I stood on the scale this weekend and saw 149.5 registering like a well known fact. I'm getting in the fighting weight I was when I was in my mid twenties. It's pretty surreal. My father told me I had two choice... Read more

Thursday, May 21, 2009      2 comments

Today I did a body test on my Wii Fit. It's "recommended" to be done everyday, but knowing how neurotic I could be, I do the body test about once a week. Let's face it, the daily weigh ins could vacillate due to any number of things. Anyway, ... Read more

For the past few months I felt like I was living a charmed runners life. My knees were holding up nicely, the weather was perfect, and my runs were wonderful. Today I finished a great run. After sitting on the couch for the duration of a movi... Read more

The Pain of Clothes Shopping
Sunday, January 25, 2009      1 comments

Yesterday I was looking at the clearance racks for workout clothes. I like to buy my workout gear out of season because it is cheaper. Anyway, for years I did not take great pains in updating my workout wear. I was happy with the t-shirt and ... Read more

Mentally I'm dragging. I'm maintaining my workouts, but I feel so lethargic. I wish I could blame the winter weather, but we're having record highs. The days have been beautiful. After every session, I feel great and successful. I'm feeling... Read more
Waiting For the Sun
Thursday, January 08, 2009      3 comments

Although it is a title of a Doors song, it is my daily mantra. The hard part about winter is the late rising of the sun. I usually run in the morning a 6am before the household gets up. For two weeks I was able to run and use my wonderful Chr... Read more

I have been having a hard time getting my daily water allowance. I start the day doing pretty well, then it goes downhill fast. I'm lucky if I get 6 glasses of water down. Boy do I feel the effects of lack of water, but I can't get myself mot... Read more
