Tuesday, July 01, 2014      26 comments

I promised I'd let you know how the Lakeland Runner's Club track workout went. The fellow in charge is so very positive and encouraging. He is just great. (And he does it totally for free, just because he wants people to run.) There were people ... Read more

Here I am at the finish line of Saturday's race. Sarah, our Galloway Program Director, asked me to make sure I smiled at the finish and I must say I did. Looks kinda goofy, though, especially compared to the young 'uns in the foreground looking ... Read more

Friday, June 27, 2014      24 comments

My new SparkFriend, Sandicane, has reframed "maintenance" as "relentless determination." I just love that phrase. She has captured it totally! Kudus to Sandi! I'm taking hubby to the doctor this morning (he's not to drive yet) and then I'll... Read more
No Goal Posts, But I'm Just Saying---
Wednesday, June 25, 2014      18 comments

A motivational speaker I once heard said that when you don't set a goal it is like playing football with no goal posts. You'd never know when you have accomplished what you set out to achieve. I used to count my binge-free eating days. I pa... Read more
