As Good As Gold

No, I didn't take the gold medal in the 1500 meter Senior Games walk. But I finished it, sore feet and all, in 11:16, just 16 seconds behind my time of last year. I took the bronze medal. And I'm just as proud of it as I was of my gold medal las... Read more

Up: Today is gorgeous. Blue sky. Singing birds. Cool breeze and warm sun. Not too much dew -- must be lower humidity than earlier this week. Gwen played at the playground this morning and asked me to read her the posted rules. There were... Read more

Better Off
Sunday, March 08, 2015      23 comments

My weight today is right where I want it. Really I'm doing pretty good. However, I've not kept all my promises to myself. I've set goals for streaks (like doing Beck's Success Skill Sheets daily) and then not followed through. I've decided to ta... Read more

Too Much
Thursday, March 05, 2015      19 comments

At some point I suspect when a person has a problem or limitation they quit blogging and complaining about it and just accept that that is the way things are. I'm not ready to declare my psoriasis -- feet and hands --will always be a problem. I ... Read more

My Beck quote of the day: "You deserve credit for taking the time to prepare meals; eating all of your food slowly, while sitting down and enjoying every bite; sticking to your plan precisely; and filling in your Food Plan Chart." It's eas... Read more

I ran over 3 miles today! Counting the warm up and cool down that was primarily walking, I went a total of 4.33 miles. It was an almost pain-free run. Hooray!! I did the 5K after warm up in right at 31 minutes. That's way off my PR of 27:33, or ... Read more
