Hubby and I took first place in costume contest at today's dance. I don't have a pix of us in costume yet but mamy people took them so just be patient.... Read more
I Love Sunrises And ---
Tuesday, October 25, 2016      13 comments

I started really appreciating sunrises on my Galloway early morning runs. I've been noticing them more and more even when not running, although from my yard there are so many trees we usually get a rather abbreviated view. Often on my way to hel... Read more
I Am Not a Garbage Disposal!
Monday, October 24, 2016      15 comments

Loved Jeanknee's comment yesterday regarding fruit. If it spoils, it spoils. I am not a garbage disposal. I do hate to waste food, but it is twice as bad to eat something because if I don't, it will go to waste. If I throw it away, it goes to wa... Read more
Working on Day 9
Sunday, October 23, 2016      8 comments

Ate just a little too much for lunch (didn't mean to; estimating/measuring error with cottage cheese) so I will need to tighten up and be mentally tough for the rest of the day to keep my good eating streak alive: I'm working on day 9. I can do ... Read more
Free Again!
Saturday, October 22, 2016      19 comments

After 7 good eating days, I weighed in at Weight Watcher exactly 7 pounds below my weight a week ago. No, I didn't lose 7 pounds of fat, but I did good! So after 90 months of free weigh-ins, I had to pay last week -- more than 2 pounds over my g... Read more
Pep Talk
Friday, October 21, 2016      11 comments

I had a really good eating day again yesterday, so I'm now working on Day 7 of my good eating streak. The scale threw me for just a little while, when after 3 days of 133.2 it was up a pound and a half this morning for no reason that I know of e... Read more
Human Chow
Wednesday, October 19, 2016      17 comments

Why doesn't Purina make Human Chow? Wouldn't it be great to just have a bag of food that doesn't even need refrigeration that was nutritionally adequate? I wouldn't even have to think about what to eat most of the time. No cooking. Very little c... Read more
Doing Pretty Good
Tuesday, October 18, 2016      19 comments

Four good eating days in a row accomplished! I'm down over 7 pounds from Saturday morning and just 1.2 pounds over my current, relaxed goal. So thankful to feel back in control. This time I tried to get back in control with 3 different food plan... Read more
Thanks Again, SparkFriends
Monday, October 17, 2016      17 comments

Thanks for all the support and wisdom I received from SparkFriends yesterday. Your caring and understanding means so very much to me. I just don't get that message of acceptance from the people I see every day and it is crucial for my success an... Read more
Shock and Share
Sunday, October 16, 2016      22 comments

Part of me just wanted to hide and not blog and not share and just keep this part of my journey to myself. But then I decided it would help me, and maybe others, to know about my current struggles. Yesterday at Weight Watchers I had to pay for b... Read more
Atypical Bummer
Tuesday, October 11, 2016      18 comments

Bummer. Dr. Love recommends I take some time off of running to see if my back will go ahead and heal. I've had back problems many time over the past 6 years, but it has never lasted this long. I'm not to the "oh, well" attitude yet; I'm still in... Read more
Long Run
Saturday, October 08, 2016      17 comments

Another great sunrise run!! We made it 14.25 miles in 3 hours and 25 minutes. Our fastest mile was number 14, so for the most part we got gradually faster throughout the run, which runners like to call "negative splits." That is a good thing. Ga... Read more
Approaching

Good day dancing and good day eating today. Natalie did good at piano lesson and I did just fine driving in the rain, at least in the kind of rain we got this afternoon. I've got 3 pitchers of water in the kitchen, 3 large pans of water, an... Read more
Dealing
Wednesday, October 05, 2016      13 comments

I'm still dealing with a backache and disappointment. I went ahead and quit my new gym. My plan to really get fit backfired and created pain. It has now been 2 weeks and 2 days since the injury and I am just so very, very bummed. I've had backac... Read more
Challenging Run and Beck Reboot
Saturday, October 01, 2016      17 comments

Met my group at 6am for a "race rehearsal" sunrise group run. I was really hoping to run all 8 miles at 11 minute per mile race. That pace would give me a PR, personal record, for a half marathon. The group I ran with had targeted 11-11:15 minut... Read more
