The Dream...and the Reality
Sunday, July 15, 2012      15 comments

The Reality: Yesterday TC said we were going to jog the whole 3.1 miles this morning. I said maybe, maybe not. We took the truck and mapped out exactly 3.1 miles. The Dream: Last night I had a dream. I was in a 5K race on ou... Read more

Had a lovely day yesterday; got to the lake about 3 hours away. Set up our trailer and had a nice evening. This morning we walked 3.5 miles and were ready to go site-see; TC asked: "Do you know where my wallet is?" Yeah, not so much. I ... Read more

I am down two pounds! Yay me!! That means I am at my lowest weight in...a decade? Don't even know it's been so long. In the past I felt 140-145 was a good, sustainable weight for me. I can't believe I'm less than TEN POUNDS from that! It f... Read more
Starting with the truth
Friday, July 06, 2012      14 comments

I loved that quote from Steve Siebold that I pasted into my blog yesterday. I HAVE decided that I must achieve "world class results and live my vision." So I have to start with the truth. I know exactly where I am (154.5 pounds) ... Read more

Dear Mentally Tough, "If you decide that you must achieve world class results and live your vision, start with the truth. Determine exactly where you are, where you're going and why you wish to go there. Next, make a decision to never quit... Read more

Monday, July 02, 2012      18 comments

It's a little gizmo, but after the big clunky armband, that's a good thing! Here's a picture of it. It's only about 2 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide. When you ... Read more
I did it! Jogged over a mile!
Sunday, July 01, 2012      25 comments

I'm still trying to process the power of my self imposed limits. If it were up to me, I would be following that 5K training guide to a "T", which would mean walking 3 minutes, jogging 2, repeat 5 times. But since the instructor at the fitness ... Read more
