Hot Running
Thursday, May 04, 2017      19 comments

I ran in 90 degree heat today around 2pm. I was out a total of 40 minutes, 5 minutes walking warm up, then 35 minutes of :30/:30 run/walk. I cooled down (very literally) in my house, appreciating the A/C. I probably should have gotten up an... Read more

We have a local SparkTeam dinner this eve. Exciting! My weight is good and I'm feeling great. I'm excited that Natalie, 10 year old granddaughter, wants to run the Mayfaire 5K on May 13th. She plans to run with Martin who is going to run :1... Read more
An Indulgence That's Not Necessarily Unhealthy
Tuesday, May 02, 2017      16 comments

For quite a few years the only dressing I used on my salads was oil, usually EVOO, and vinegar. One of the changes I made after first counting sodium when I started on SP was giving up bottled salad dressing. When I felt like I was in a rut I we... Read more
Love the Sunrise!

My nephew and I are going to run again this morning near my home. I'm ready and he'll be here any moment. Snapped a few photos of the sunrise this morning. There were years I rarely saw the sunrise. No more. What a great way to start the day! ... Read more
Pretty Lellow Flowers

Yesterday after school 6 year old Gwen walked up to me and said, "yellow". She said it perfectly. We both smiled. "I can say yellow now." Both of us nod and smile. Maybe a half hour later when we were taking a walk she asked me what the nam... Read more
Long Term Challenges
Monday, April 24, 2017      40 comments

Maintaining a large weight loss is challenging. I would bet if you are reading this blog, that is not news to you. Most Sparkers have read about it, if not experienced it themselves. Watermellen recently blogged about how after a little foo... Read more
Running Easy

Yesterday I had a follow up PT appointment aimed at breaking my pattern of getting my back and piriformis healed up and then straining them again when I'm trying to strengthen them. The physical therapist could see, and I could too, progress sin... Read more
Silly Me!! Or Not So Much??
Tuesday, April 18, 2017      49 comments

Today I feel so much better than yesterday. Partly I feel better because the scale is 1.8 pounds below yesterday morning. I feel pretty good at 126.2, just .2 over my current target range of 122 (which I haven't yet achieved; 122.8 is adult... Read more
Struggling
Monday, April 17, 2017      20 comments

Slenderella61 is upset with herself, but refusing to be discouraged. I will not give up. I want to maintain the lower weight (122-126) but am still plagued by thoughts that it might be a weight I just can't realistically maintain. Scale was 128 ... Read more

Enjoyed the YMCA Spring Extravaganza with the kids yesterday. Gwen told me that this is NOT the Easter bunny. She knows because this is a PERSON who was her instructor at Jellyfish camp last summer: ... Read more
Not Critical
Sunday, April 16, 2017      11 comments

I wrote a blog and deleted it before anyone read it. It was about excuses. The blog was too critical. When it comes to excuses, I am trying to rid myself, but going to be more tolerant of others'. Ran-walked-ran 5.8 miles with nephew this b... Read more
Fun Walk
Wednesday, April 12, 2017      15 comments

I bought a new MP3 player the other day, a very inexpensive, very light clip-on model. My old MP3 player still works, but I dropped it on the treadmill several years ago and some of the functions don't work. It has a lot of good music on it and ... Read more

Here are some pictures of Panther Point Trail posted by people I ran with yesterday. I just love running in the beauty of nature. 9 miles of trail are done. The county has put lime and shells, almost as hard as cement, in the low spots, and buil... Read more
