Ran, Danced, and Started Flying
Thursday, August 01, 2013      17 comments

Ran in my neighborhood this morning and then had to shower really fast and hustle to be ready for the senior dance. Should have gotten up earlier; should have gone to bed earlier. Oh, well. Got it accomplished and, other than forgetting my earri... Read more
This Much? Really??

Today's SparkCoach challenge is to find a way to represent your weight loss, whether it is in sticks of butter, pounds of laundry, or weights in the gym room. It made me realize that I have a great representation right now that won't last long, ... Read more
Wouldn't It Be Great?
Monday, July 29, 2013      18 comments

Wouldn't it be great if all the health and fitness experts and quasi-experts and wannabe experts agreed? Wouldn't it be great if the advertising and packaging of food promoted healthy eating and every exercise plan safely built muscle, flexibili... Read more

Can't just leave you hanging as I've been writing about my class reunion for days. Yes, I enjoyed the multi-class reunion a lot last eve. There were over 600 people there, 27 were from my class, and 12 were good friends of mine years ago. It was... Read more
Recovery Concerns or Not
Saturday, July 27, 2013      22 comments

On Thursday I had an energy surge and ran faster than I had planned to for about 4 miles, without walk breaks, on the YMCA treadmill. SparkFriends were encouraging, but reminded me to allow for recovery. I was not aware of any recovery issues 10... Read more

Tomorrow evening I'll be going to a high school reunion for those who graduated from my high school from 1956-1972. Should be fun. I've been to reunions before, but only for the class of 1967. I expect to see people I haven't seen in decades; fi... Read more

Energy Surge
Thursday, July 25, 2013      17 comments

Today's run just felt so good. Don't know what was different. I haven't had any where I felt bad, just some where I was glad to get to the walking interval each time, but never unhappy to reach the run interval. But today I just listened to my b... Read more

I saw a fellow today as I took a walk break from volunteer work with my former agency. I hadn't seen him for about 3 years. After hello, he commented that I am keeping my weight off and looking good! That was my first "keeping the weight off" c... Read more

This morning I got up and ran 6 miles (well, run-walk-run) with my half marathon training group while my niece and nephew ran the 3rd of the Watermelon 5K series. They both finished, which was the point. After my run I met them for breakfast. D... Read more

Today my hubby and I enjoyed another senior dance. The city recreation department lets the group use the facility for free and the singer/musician/DJ works for tips. It's a lot of fun. They always have good coffee that I enjoy and cookies that I... Read more
Weigh to Go!
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      18 comments

As I hinted in my SP status this morning I weighed 129.6, down 1.4 pounds from yesterday. So I'm now just .6 of a pound over what I weighed when we left on vacation 3 weeks ago and just 3.6 over the weight I would like to maintain. As one ... Read more
No Cartwheels, But Not Worried
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      20 comments

I've gone nearly 3 weeks without tracking, most of it time I visited family in Tennessee and South Dakota. I made many good food choices, but there were times my healthy options were limited, without making a fuss anyway. Most of the time I did ... Read more
