Good Time to Run!!
Saturday, May 28, 2016      12 comments

Tried not to stress at all, but somehow when I know I'm going to be timed, I find relaxing to be a challenge. And several of my runner friends, including my 80 year old friend who was trying to break 13 minutes (and did) and my 72 year old frien... Read more
Refuse to Stress Over Running
Friday, May 27, 2016      10 comments

Tomorrow our Galloway group meets at 5:50am for a 6am run. We'll warm up running to the track and then do a "Magic Mile", a one mile time test that the program director uses to form the pace groups. I'm trying not to stress about it. My run... Read more

Time passes. I've heard older people over and over say that the older you get, the faster it passes. Perhaps I'm experiencing that now. Gwen has a loose tooth. She keeps wiggling it, the one on the bottom front left. The tooth fairy will be... Read more
Significant, Perhaps

Nothing profound to say today. I actually did not step on the scale this morning because I just felt bloated.I'm sure I'm up a little. Didn't eat perfect yesterday, but not bad. I'm certainly not going to feel bad about it. Overall, I'm doing gr... Read more
Memorial to the Capris

Not that I haven't been wearing some tank tops and shorts these last few weeks, but now it is time to settle into my May-November clothes. So I reorganized my closet yesterday, putting all the long sleeves in the back and most of my long pants. ... Read more
Worth It at Typhoon Lagoon
Sunday, May 22, 2016      17 comments

Typhoon Lagoon is a great water park at Disney World. We were there 4 hours which was just perfect. No one got sun burnt and I'm betting all 6 of us who went slept well last night. It did wear us out! First my daughter gave me a Tennessee ... Read more

Safe Walk and Run

Thanks, everyone, for the comments on my blog. Jeanknee is correct. The bird we saw yesterday was an osprey. In my running group this morning was a person who had served as a guide at the Circle Bar B Reserve, knew his stuff, and confirmed from ... Read more
Happy Trails to You!
Friday, May 20, 2016      20 comments

Thoroughly enjoyed a slow and thoughtful 90 minute walk with my friend this morning at Circle Bar B nature Reserve. We saw dozens of gators, so many birds: limpkin, egrets (several types), herons (blue/white/great/not so great), falcon (we think... Read more
Senior Prom Account
Thursday, May 19, 2016      11 comments

The Senior Prom was great! This picture, not so much, but at least you can see we went. We may get a better picture later; this was one a friend took, not the official one. The theme was "Under the Stars" despite the fact that it was held my fav... Read more
Fun To Try
Wednesday, May 18, 2016      15 comments

Tomorrow is Senior Prom at Senior Dance. I just can't help but smile! Some of you may know that not having a prom date when I was in high school was one of the really hurtful parts of being an overweight teen. Yes, I've met people here on SP who... Read more
Nailed the Physical
Tuesday, May 17, 2016      24 comments

Back in 2008, I weighed around 180 pounds. I had kept off around 32 pounds from my 1999 diet, but I had been gaining for years. At that time my cholesterol was high, my blood pressure was high, and my knees hurt especially when I walked stairs. ... Read more

On FaceBook I got some nice comments on my new profile picture. You'll recognize it as it is the same as my wallpaper on SP now: My friend, Don... Read more
No More Fooling Myself
Sunday, May 15, 2016      18 comments

In order to do better weekly Beck Checks, I am going to try a daily check list. Might be too much forever, but maybe for a few weeks to get me into the habit. Just like I'm adding a question about my level of pre-planning food, which is one area... Read more
