What bad words am I allowed to use on here?
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      6 comments

Okay, I want to say bad words, but I guess I have to keep it civil. I am P^$*& and disappointed in myself and I don't even know what to do. Here's what set me off: I took a *$&%^# Three Minute Step test to assess my cardiovascular fit... Read more
Signed up for Peachtree RR - what a trip!
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      3 comments

Apparently RUNNING the race is nothing compared to REGISTERING for it! It took me an hour and a half to complete the online registration due to some server issues they were having. At one point I almost gave up and said, "Forget it, I don'... Read more
Missed my goal by a minute
Saturday, March 07, 2009      1 comments

Actually, I missed my goal by 1 min and 4 secs. 61:03 was my 10K time. While that is the best 10K out of my last four races, it still didn't meet my goal. It is SO frustrating! All I'm hoping is that I get a good Peachtree number o... Read more

Although I often meet my goals, there are times when I don't even come close. This is one of those times (well two of those times if you count the weight loss goals I've never met!) Anyway, after my Half Marathon, my new goal was to get ba... Read more

Nothing makes you feel old like becoming a grandmother! But it is worth it. My grandson was born yesterday at 10:00am weighing 9 lbs. (Big babies run in our family!) Next time I'm out running and some 20 year old zips by me, I'll be th... Read more

1200 calorie progress
Thursday, January 29, 2009      3 comments

Okay I've done 1200-1300 calories this week. I am HUNGRY! Yesterday was the worst. I was at the lower range - right at 1200 calories. Now I follow all the "rules". I eat breakfast. I eat something every 3-4 hours. I eat lots of whole ... Read more
Dieting sucks!
Tuesday, January 27, 2009      1 comments

I decided the only way to get off these 20 lbs is to go back on the 1200 calories/day. It worked when I did it before, which is not to say its easy! And the ONLY WAY I can do it is to write down everything I eat. I hate doing that. I hate do... Read more

Back again - one year later
Friday, November 28, 2008      1 comments

It was almost exactly a year ago that I joined here (Nov 2007). I have been gone for several months while I have focused on Half Marathon training. The activity on this site really dropped off in the summer as well, so I took some time away. ... Read more
