Tuesday, November 02, 2010      7 comments

Hi everyone, NO Vandal and I don't get together to synchronize our blogs! After the half-marathon I was soooo busy trying to catch up with work and home stuff. I always do my "weekly cooking" on the weekend, so missing that put ... Read more
Low Calorie Day
Monday, October 25, 2010      4 comments

I'm going to start blogging at night. Rather than setting forth my intentions at the beginning of the day I want to actually report what I HAVE done. Today TC and I took a slow 2.5 mile walk and I discovered 'm still sore in a few places. ... Read more
Back from the Half Marathon
Sunday, October 24, 2010      6 comments

You know I was nervous! I had shoe issues, sock issues, and hadn't done quite enough training or lost enough weight. But WE DID IT! TC and I walked the half marathon in 3 hours, 25 minutes which was a 15:20 mile. WE are very happy with t... Read more
Back Next Week
Wednesday, October 20, 2010      6 comments

I've been really busy this week and haven't been focused on my weight loss AT ALL. This will probably be my last blog until Sunday or Monday. I am planning to get my priorities in order and get refocused on the weight loss then. Right now ... Read more
Doing OK

My foot is fine and we walked 12 miles yesterday. I changed back to my old worn-out shoes and they were fine. I don't have time to get a new pair in time for the half marathon on Saturday so TC has offered to carry a spare set of shoes in... Read more
Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the supportive comments yesterday. I think "gym class" may have scarred more of us than we admit!! Zumba was absolutely fine as everyone predicted. I hung out in the back and just gave it my all. Go left? I'... Read more
Keepin' On and other ramblings.

I got on the scale this morning and am only up 0.5 pounds. Yay me. I'm still trying to figure out the shoe-sock-laces issue for the half marathon in NINE DAYS. I envy people without foot problems. The last time I walked a half it probabl... Read more

Thrilling Thursday!

Really normal day today, so I'm thrilled about that. Only one late class. TC and I are going to a local COE park tonight for a long weekend of camping. There are bike trails, walking trails, AND it's close to town so we can go to the Arkansas... Read more
Weary Wednesday
Wednesday, October 06, 2010      6 comments

Well, I totally underestimated my "busyness" factor for yesterday. I had a meeting I had totally forgotten about until I got an email reminder so I ended up going into work 2 hours earlier than planned. Then I had all those midterm tests to gr... Read more
Terrific Tuesday!

Hey everyone! I'm sooo excited about today because things will begin to get back to normal, whatever that is. I have one more midterm to give today (and then three to grade). I'm giving blood at noon. But that's it for today's obligations! ... Read more
And we're off!

I always feel that way on Monday morning. It's like the starting gun goes off and I don't have time to breathe until Friday afternoon! Today is another 12-hour day but then things will start to slow down. I hate to admit that after... Read more
Super Sunday
Sunday, October 03, 2010      8 comments

TC and I walked 10.5 miles this morning as part of our training for the half marathon! My feet are sore but why wouldn't they be? We averaged a 17-minute mile. We'll never win any races but at our age we're just happy to be able to part... Read more
Perfect Saturday!

TC's hiking club had its first hike of the season today; they always do the Rim Walk on Mount Nebo. It's 3.4 miles, and afterwards a picnic. The weather was perfect today -- low 80's blazingly bright sun, low humidity. Finally! After 100... Read more

I'm determined to blog every day in Vandal's absence...I'll blog in the mornings and check in on everyone in the evening. Today is a normal day with nothing extra beyond my classes. YAY! I'm hoping I can catch up on a few things that need... Read more
