Happy New Year!

I've made a resolution this year not to make a resolution. It's simple. I don't keep them anyway so why bother wasting my time. But I do have a plan. My plan is to be me. My plan is to take care of me. My plan is to learn to eat better and get m... Read more
Consistency is a good thing

I have now been exercising almost daily for 3 months. At first I didn't think I could continue. But now I get out of bed and head right to it. It's paying off in little ways. I have more energy AND my butt is getting smaller. ... Read more
Where did I go?

For some reason I have lost my way in my journey to weight loss, even avoiding Sparkpeople. But my wake call is here. One month ago I became a grandmother for the first time to the sweetest baby girl. Well, you know what happens on an e... Read more

I want to thank all of you who sent hugs my way. This weekend was very rough, with yesterday the worst. Our family was forced to say goodbye to the youngest member of our family. He was truly 'man's best friend'. It's strange seeing the vario... Read more

I've been through a lot of ups and downs at my age. One would think that I could get a grip on this but maybe I'm not ready. Trace has been in my families lives for more than 13 years now. He is the sweetest Sheltie one could have, full o... Read more
Just a little glitch?

It's Wednesday, July10, exactly one month away from my first 5K. Here I sit with my leg up and knee ice packed. I got back out on the trail yesterday and thought I wasn't pushing myself. But my knee revolted, went on strike, gave out. Headin... Read more
First Run or was it a Jaunt?

Seeing the looming August 10th deadline approaching faster than I thought, I went out for my first jog yesterday morning. Maybe I should call it a jaunt? My journey into realizing just how out of shape I am. I remember when I was in high scho... Read more
Great Day for a Ride!

I spent the day on the back of a motorcycle. Yes, motorcycle. Not a bicycle. It was a ME day! I've been nursing so many things wrong with me in the past month that I completely stopped exercising until I felt better. I think I'm there after... Read more
Push too hard and pay for it
Sunday, April 28, 2013 4 comments
My thinking was a little off about 2 weeks ago. I have this first ever 5k in my head and thought I would make up for a loss workout day. So I pushed myself a little harder on one particular day. What a big mistake. I am attributing that push... Read more

Had my follow up doctor's appointment yesterday and have been cleared from therapy and set to get on track. Worked out this morning with my 'old' routine but still watched how much I lifted and didn't risk the planks. My wrist yelled whooo! S... Read more
Missed that by a mile!

Well, in two days it will be April 1. My first goal missed by 10 pounds, unless they disappear in the next 2 days. I'm not feeling sorry for myself or making any excuses. I had a huge set back a couple of weeks ago with a fall on the ice and ... Read more
Oh Man...what have I done?

So no one has ever accused me of thinking before opening my mouth and oh did I so open it wide. I am on our local United Way board and each year we have a fun run/walk. I only started by saying to my coworker that I wanted to run it this y... Read more
