Hubby went to costume party this morn. I helped him dress, threading the beard through the beads with a wire. Hope he has lots of fun. Maybe he'll even win! I have G... Read more

Well, it's been great, but it is time to come down off of the cloud 9 of success story and popular blog and get back to the routine. Routine. Such an interesting word. Today I've been thinking about the routine and routines and the things I do r... Read more

When ONEKIDSMOM, Barb, was a featured SparkPeople success story, she didn't put it in her status or put a link to it in her blog. She wrote a profound blog about heros and she-ros and about how even successful maintainers are human, having and ... Read more
New Personal Distance Record!
Saturday, October 26, 2013      39 comments

I ran 15.05 miles this morning, my longest run to date. My previous record was 14.3 in November 2012. It felt good. I don't think it challenged my cardio even once, but I felt it in my glutes. I ran the fastest mile by myself, the last one; my g... Read more
So Lucky!!
Friday, October 25, 2013      28 comments

If you read my status this morning, you know we had a narrow escape. It could have been really bad, but it wasn't. Hubby asked me to hold the ladder for him. He had asked a couple days ago, but I had to wait for a time he wanted to do it and I d... Read more

I long ago got rid of my 2X clothes, and my 1Xs, 18s, 16s, 14s, 12s, 10s, 8s, and even some of the bigger 6s. I found myself no longer wearing big scarfs, earrings, and pins, but using smaller accessories, so I got rid of the big ones, too. I re... Read more
Still Working On It
Wednesday, October 23, 2013      14 comments

Yesterday I didn't do a very good job of communicating. Yes, of course, if I stay within my calorie range more often I'll do better. What I was trying to say is that the lifestyle I have lived the last four years results in me weighing just... Read more
Weighty Analysis
Tuesday, October 22, 2013      19 comments

Between October 7 and October 13 I weighed in 5 times averaging -- drum roll -- 126.04. For that week, I actually weighed just .04 pounds over my personal goal. Close enough! The next week I had a little slip and with four weigh ins, averag... Read more
What is that Soy Doing in My Tuna?
Monday, October 21, 2013      17 comments

I eat tuna almost every week. Lots of protein. Low fat. Very convenient. Lasts in the can for years. Albacore has more mercury and heavy metals than the chunk light, so I savor the albacore as a special treat. Yum. Don't even have to have mayo a... Read more
Chronic Inspiration
Sunday, October 20, 2013      13 comments

I found out something today that really surprises me. I had always thought that marathon runners are the picture of health. I run with a woman, not every week but from time to time, who has been a runner for more than 40 years. She is very pleas... Read more
Not Perfect
Friday, October 18, 2013      17 comments

Yesterday I did a five mile TM run at my half marathon target pace for 2:30 finish, using a run:walk ratio of 3:1. It was a comfortable run and I felt like I could go on and on. I didn't use any incline, though, and to be prepared for the inaugu... Read more
More Comments About Synching Nutrition and Fitness Trackers
Thursday, October 17, 2013      13 comments

As I wrote yesterday, about 3 weeks ago I synched my nutrition and fitness tracker so that my exercise affects my calorie range on a daily basis. After I did that, I found the tracker was giving me too many calories. So I went back in and change... Read more

Twenty days ago I reset my SP nutrition tracker to respond to my tracked fitness on a daily basis. Prior to that, from September 2009 until September of 2013, the weekly anticipated fitness activities for the week were used to calculate my calo... Read more
