Running is Not My Whole Life
Saturday, March 05, 2016      17 comments

Running is a great hobby, BUT it can't be my whole life. I need many other interesting activities, challenges, and social outlets. On days like today when my back is hurting and I am oh, so disappointed I can't run, it is much worse when I have ... Read more
Slow Down

No Comfort in Food
Wednesday, March 02, 2016      18 comments

I had hope my back would be fine by now, but no such luck. I am feeling so disappointed. I really wanted to run well at Senior Games on March 12th. I may still be able to run; we'll see. But once again my training, which was already going to be ... Read more
Beck and Busy Life
Tuesday, March 01, 2016      13 comments

Busy Life - Yesterday worked out fine. Gwen got her ballet lesson and it was observation day, so I got to watch. Other than her nosebleed that took a minute to get stopped, it was great! I got home in time to get in a run - 5 minute warm up, 2 m... Read more

Weight, Running, Hand, Beck
Sunday, February 28, 2016      12 comments

Weight - I do love a middle 2, but oh well, not today. Have not overeaten since I had 3 middle 2 days in a row, but a solid 132.00 today. May be sodium. May be fluctuation for unknown reason. Changed the batteries in my scale because it gave me ... Read more

Smokin'
Thursday, February 25, 2016      14 comments

Lots of fun at Senior Dance today: polka, cha-cha, electric slide, swing, slow dances, etc. Silly hubby told me I was "smokin' hot" when I think 66 year old "nice" is more what I am aiming for!! Anyway, doesn't hurt for him to say it. He heard i... Read more
Win Some, Lose Some
Wednesday, February 24, 2016      16 comments

Winning is good and losing is good when it is weight. And losing when it isn't weight can be good if we learn something valuable. And trying is good even when we don't achieve everything we set out to. And trying again is good. I've got a m... Read more

Not Every Moment of Maintenance is Difficult
Monday, February 22, 2016      17 comments

Last evening I didn't even want to eat more after supper. That is the first evening in the last 4 months that maintenance was easy for me from 7-9pm. Frustratingly, I don't know what happened. I struggled so hard the night before and succeeded. ... Read more

A Little Speed Work
Friday, February 19, 2016      12 comments

Yesterday it was almost 70 degrees when I had a little over 2 hours to myself while Gwen was in group speech therapy. I decided to try a little speed work. Senior Games 5K is March 12th and I am not stressing myself out for speed, but a little p... Read more
