I can bend over farther. I can walk with much less pain and less limp. Still not time yet for me to walk for exercise; definitely can't run now. My pecs and arm muscles are sore because I've been using my arms in an unaccustomed way to lower and... Read more
Getting Better

It's clear to me now that I should not have run Sunday. I thought I was okay and that I was listening to my body well enough. Turns out I was wrong. My injury on 5/17 (stepped wrong going to bathroom in middle of night and twisted my hip) was mu... Read more

New running experience: granddaughter playfully jumping in puddles as we ran in the drizzle. Yes, she got my shoes and ankles wet. I smiled anyway. Why not? We went farther today, over 2.5 miles. Longest run for her in months. Counting down... Read more

Minor challenges: insect bite on lip, one night of little sleep, twisted/tweaked right hip - can't run today, scale up .6 pounds from yesterday, new haircut looks stupid and days and days of rainy weather isn't helping, either dear 11 year ... Read more

Just got back from a walk to the grocery store, about 2 miles round trip. I walk by residential areas, fields with cattle and horses, and a field with palm trees for sale in the big square route. Although I have often wished there were more side... Read more

Making an Entrance
Thursday, May 10, 2018      18 comments

One of the reasons I want to maintain my almost 80 pound weight loss is appearance -- you know, all those vanity reasons. Like fitting into cute clothes. Being able to smile at myself in the mirror. Getting compliments. Feeling confident as I wa... Read more
I Know What I Want
Wednesday, May 09, 2018      14 comments

Last 2 days have been much better, just mild hunger. I've stuck to the plan and I've even seen some downward movement on the scale. I reminded myself of my teen years when one of my mantras was, "Hunger is my friend. It eats my fat!" A dear... Read more
Not Worth It!
Monday, May 07, 2018      15 comments

Yesterday I stuck to my food plan. Finally. Very glad I did. However, I was very hungry, especially at night laying in bed, not able to sleep. But I didn't get up to eat. And this morning when I woke up on this plan I was to wait an hour for bre... Read more
Super Grandkids!
Saturday, May 05, 2018      16 comments

Last evening it was my great pleasure to hear my two granddaughters play piano. It was Gwen's first recital and Natalie's 7th. They both did super, not perfect, but truly super. I take them to piano lessons every week and I supervise at least ha... Read more
Trees are Good After All
Friday, May 04, 2018      13 comments

In my last blog I wrote about trees, specifically the danger of dead limbs overhead. Or for that matter, fallen limbs on the road/trail/path is an issue for those of us who run in the dark, too. I have one friend who ended up in the ER after tr... Read more
Running Concerns
Wednesday, May 02, 2018      11 comments

Enjoyed another 3 mile run-walk this morning starting at 59 degrees. Felt great! Want to write about another running hazard. Not traffic, although that definitely is a concern for major incident. Not falling, although that is my most likel... Read more
Really
Tuesday, May 01, 2018      17 comments

First I wrote a great blog, of course it was, well-written and compelling (LOL). But when I posted, it disappeared (for real). I thought, oh, well, and changed my status, using one of the pictures that had been in the blog. But it was sid... Read more
