I'll Be Ready
Saturday, June 02, 2012      11 comments

I did an 80 minutes treadmill workout today with 31 one-minute running intervals. It felt great. My total mileage was 6.2 miles, precisely a 10K. That is 16 minutes slower than I straight ran a 10K in February. But that is fine following a six w... Read more
I've Gone and Done It Now!!
Thursday, May 31, 2012      11 comments

I just registered for the Women's Half Marathon (WHM) in St. Petersburg on November 18, 2012. I have just committed to train for almost six months and to run (or run-walk-run, more likely) 13.1 miles. In January I declared my intention to run a... Read more

After almost 6 weeks of a break from running, I am now officially back training. But this time is really special. I plan to run a half marathon, that is, 13.1 miles. My longest race to date is a 10k, 6.2 miles, and the longest training run of my... Read more
Not a Human Garbage Can

Good day at SeaWorld. Lots of walking. I even walked an hour pushing the stroller while Gwen slept. I had grilled chicken caesar salad. They gave me a half cup of dressing on the side, but I used less than a tablespoon and it was plenty. I pick... Read more
In Control of the Trend
Sunday, May 27, 2012      10 comments

Looking back over the years, any time I avoided stepping on the scale, I was gaining weight. So I know I need to weigh regularly. But I should not be too concerned about any one regular weigh in, definitely not let it ruin my day. I need to look... Read more
But I Really Wanted the WHOLE Potato
Friday, May 25, 2012      11 comments

Usually when I bake potatoes for hubby and family, I have a half or a third or sometimes even a quarter of the potato. But this time I just really wanted the whole huge potato all for myself. So I looked up "potato" in the SP nutrition tracker.... Read more
Gym for the Next 10 Days
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      7 comments

I get my car back tomorrow at least for 10 days. DD & DSIL get a rental as the other party today accepted responsibility for the wreck. I'm going to really enjoy going to the gym for a few days. My hubby wants us, retired people who don't drive ... Read more

Lots of good healing going on here: * Hubby's healing well and has been released by the doctor just 9 days after appendectory! * Son in law's forehead is healing well, too. Really have to look to see where the stitches were. * Sister expe... Read more
No Excuses
Monday, May 21, 2012      9 comments

Ooops! I did it again. Got a minor injury messing a little with my big plans for strength training. Saturday as I did my Walk-Away-the-Pounds kind of moves while watching TV I tripped over my aerobic step. I couldn't quite catch myself, so I dir... Read more
Not Making That Mistake Again
Sunday, May 20, 2012      7 comments

What allowed me to succeed this time when I had battled obesity unsuccessfully for more than 5 decades? One mistake I made over and over was eating too little. I'd go on extremely calorie restricted programs. The liquid protein diet that made me... Read more
Home Challenge
Saturday, May 19, 2012      6 comments

I'm going to do my best strength training session at home ever today. With no car to drive to the gym, I'm taking on home ST as a challenge (with the help of SP workouts, of course). I'm going to do my ST first, as that is my focus this month, b... Read more
Trick for Preschoolers' Active Play
Friday, May 18, 2012      8 comments

Natalie and I have played and played and played with bubbles. I thought we knew everything there is to know about bubbles. But I just find out something that makes it even more fun and active. Wet your hand and you can catch a bubble right in yo... Read more
Reason One SparkPeople Helped Me Through Strength Training
Thursday, May 17, 2012      11 comments

Today I'm a little sore from my SparkPeople Intermediate Runner's Workout I started almost two weeks ago. Guess I must have gone lower on those walking lunges or deeper on the squats. It's hard to decide if that soreness feels good or not; defin... Read more
Now Everything is Fine Again
Sunday, May 13, 2012      14 comments

Just when I thought everything was just about back to normal following my son-in-law's car wreck, my husband had to have an emergency appendectomy. I actually was dressed and leaving to go to the gym for my Saturday workout, which is usually my ... Read more
Everything is Fine
Friday, May 11, 2012      10 comments

So glad my son-in-law will be okay. Since his car wreck on Wednesday, he can't drive and doesn't have a car to drive anyway. Now he can be alone, but yesterday and the day before he wasn't suppose to, so I got to see a lot of him. I've spent mo... Read more
