Housework: Help or Hindrance?
Sunday, July 03, 2011      9 comments

There was a time, several years and decades of pounds ago, when it was hard for me to keep my house clean. I was slow and tired. The effort just took a great deal out of me. I hated cleaning and I hated the mess and I hated the dirt. And I'd nev... Read more
Still Getting Better
Saturday, July 02, 2011      10 comments

I'm not getting older, I'm getting better! Actually, I am getting older, but that is okay, because I am still getting fitter. Today I ran a 5K, 3.1 miles, on the treadmill at the well air conditioned YMCA in 27 minutes and 58 seconds. Tha... Read more
Thought Required
Friday, July 01, 2011      11 comments

I didn't set up any special goals for June like I do some months, but I still accomplished quite a few good things: 1. All my morning weigh ins were in my maintenance range. The overwhelming majority of the time I ate wisely. I tracked all ... Read more
Strength Training Done Easy
Thursday, June 30, 2011      6 comments

I ran a 5K on June 4th, the first of the 4 in the Watermelon Series. Soon after I thought to myself that I didn't have a race for three weeks, so it was time to take on the strength training. I was feeling so strong and athletic. Well, a co... Read more
Thanks, SparkFriends
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      8 comments

I really appreciate the responses I got to my blog yesterday when I told about feeling fat despite the fact that I had not gained weight. SparkFriend (LEGALLYBLONDE, for one) suggested using clothing -- like goal weight jeans -- as a test. Sound... Read more
Self-Centered Obsession or Maybe Delusion
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      19 comments

I woke up feeling really fat and flabby today. Don't really know why. I hadn't weighed since Friday, partly because I thought my weight was up and didn't want to see it. But today I thought I should face it. I weighed 126.2, right in my target r... Read more
I'm Helping

My daughter has a stress fracture near her heel and feels it on the bottom of her foot. She is in a cast, but should be able to go back to work in two weeks. Carrying the baby is hard for her. Keeping up with the four year old is also a challeng... Read more
Watermelon Series 5K, 2nd Race, Finish Photo
Sunday, June 26, 2011      12 comments

Here's me in my purple running shorts, finishing the race. You can see I'm smiling. I truly enjoyed this race. I don't have the quad and hamstring tightness I had aft... Read more
Results Already
Saturday, June 25, 2011      15 comments

Well, the 2011 Watermelon 5K Series, race two, is in the book. I felt good the entire race; much better than last race. I started out running to Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah just because I wanted to. It reminded me to smile, enjoy it, and not let my heart b... Read more
Celebrating Fitness
Friday, June 24, 2011      9 comments

I got an e-mail telling me that the Watermelon Series awards will be based on gun time, not net time (chip time). Evidentally, there was some problem with some of the chips so that not everyone got a time. On the web site only net times are list... Read more
Getting Ready and Unexpected Challenge
Thursday, June 23, 2011      13 comments

I am getting ready for my 5K on Saturday. I've chosen my clothes, washed my running socks, trimmed my toe nails, checked my glasses, etc. I ran Tuesday and took a long walk today. Plan a short elliptical session tomorrow. I still have just a tou... Read more
Overreacting and Undereating
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      12 comments

This morning I was down 3.8 pounds from my weigh in yesterday. After overeating a little bit 2 days in a row, I really cut back. It worked. Only, it would have been healthier to have eaten at least 1200 calories (29 Weight Watcher pointsplus) ye... Read more
Missing Annie
Sunday, June 19, 2011      16 comments

WalkingAnnie was one of the wisest and most inspiring SparkFriends I ever had. She researched issues related to weight and fitness, especially appropriate for us who are making changes after years of poor eating habits. Her blogs were full of he... Read more
Good Workout Today
Saturday, June 18, 2011      7 comments

Enjoyed a warm up walk with my SparkTeam this morning at a local air conditioned mall. Then I ran two miles without problem. When I'm running I don't even think about my lower back, although it is still bothering me if I turn or bend suddenly. T... Read more
Now I Know
Thursday, June 16, 2011      17 comments

It's a mild injury. Now I know. I am still hopeful that I'll be able to runthe 5K on June 25th. I'm not going to get in all my training runs so my time may not be as good as it might have been. In the big picture, though, I don't think this lit... Read more
