Yeah, that would be me. I was so happy on Friday with my assessment, and so busy trying to get ready for vacation that I sort of stopped watching and tracking. Yeah, I knew it was a bad move but I DID IT ANYWAY! Well, this morning I g... Read more

Friday, April 27, 2012      13 comments

Pounds are coming off s-l-o-w-l-y and that can be discouraging and frustrating. But, as I always tell TC, nobody sees the number on the scale, they only see my body. So we had our monthly assessment this morning. I only lost 3 pounds BUT ... Read more

Thursday, April 19, 2012      14 comments

Does anyone know? Is Sparkpeople strapped for money? Isn't this like having a brewery sponsor an AA convention?? NOT liking this. I feel triggers are everywhere and Spark ought to be a safe haven. Just saying.... Read more
Hump Day Motivation!

I'm on my own today because TC is working at a city garden doing his master gardener thing. I went to the local park and walked 4 miles at a 14-minute-mile pace. Pretty good for an old lady! Now I'm home and will get on my treadmill later... Read more

This was a movie on Amazon Prime that I watched over the weekend, and then made TC watch with me. It was about a vegan who introduced three ordinary meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers to a vegan lifestyle. The three committed to the vegan... Read more

Hi everyone, Not much going on here, just keeping on "keeping on". I bounced up a bit from my astounding midweek 155, but I'm still keeping my ticker there because I'll get back soon enough. I weighed 155.5 this morning for my officia... Read more

Believing the Impossible

The Spandex Nazi is a talker. She runs her mouth pretty much all through class because she thinks it makes the time go faster. (Maybe for her!) Today while I was gasping for air, flinging my weights around, dripping sweat on the floor, tryin... Read more

My Inner Athlete: HALLO, Anybody In There?
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      10 comments

TC and I walked 12 miles today. It wasn't easy or pretty but it's done. While we were walking (endlessly, it always seems) I started musing: WHEN will this get easier? EVER? He and I have walked five half-marathons and one marathon and ... Read more

TC's hiking club does maintenance on a section of the Ozark Highland Trail twice a year. The only time I went on this hike was October 2005. I know the date because I went back on the club's website and checked the pictures. I was about 15 po... Read more
