ICECUB & LIVEDAILY - Thanks, the Botox has been helpful so far, although I've had a few annoying side effects from it like neck pain/soreness and this awful dry mouth, which thankfully has gone away. My daughter Lola and I did the Shamrock 8k this past Saturday and we both did really well! I actually PR'd (personal record) and I was so shocked because I hadn't really trained and during the race, I wasn't even focused on my pace or finishing time. I just wanted to finish and not push myself too hard and injure myself. It definitely made me realize how much I enjoy running and doing races and what a positive impact it has on my life. I sometimes forget that when I stray away for awhile. My daughter wants to go for the half marathon next year. The 8k was the longest race distance she's completed. So we're going to try to really be consistent and hardcore with our training for the next year.

Heather

Hi everyone! We had a bit of snow on Monday. I woke up Monday morning, and it looked like Mother Nature had shaken confectioner's sugar over everything! Today the sun is shining bright, although it is chilly. Tomorrow it's supposed to be a little bit warmer. We had a queen size headboard and footboard we were trying to sell, and we think we have a buyer for it. That way it will be out of the garage! One more thing to get out so the car can go in! I've been letting my hair grow, but now I'm thinking of getting it cut short again, like in my profile picture. I just don't know what to do.

emoticon Hi there!

I had a busy, busy weekend doing a flea market. The weather was warm-ish, short sleeve weather. This morning though, I woke up with just my nose peeking out of the covers because it was COLD in my room! It was 43 degrees, and rainy and raw. What a change a day makes!! I'm wearing long pants and a sweatshirt!

I made spinach and ricotta mini frittatas yesterday, and they turned out so good! You make them using a muffin pan!

Hope everyone had a good day today!

Every time I lay down to go to sleep, I start coughing. It's my own fault. I was cleaning out the garage today, and all that dust aggravated my asthma. I've taken my meds, but I'm still coughing. And I'm tired and whiney. Next time, I'll wear a mask. It was pretty here today too. It got up to 61!

Heather - I hope the botox helps you! The weather for the next week is supposed to be warmer, so enjoy getting outside while you can!

Gail - the recipe I use for chicken vegetable soup is in the SP index. It came out really good, and now we have soup in the frig and the freezer!

I have a flea market that I'm doing Friday and Saturday this week. Since it's 2 days in a row, and I don't know how I'll feel afterwards, I'm trying to psych myself into getting up early to ride my bike first thing in the morning, and I'm also going to do it every day a little bit longer Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Here's to a good week!!

I honestly can't wait for it to get warmer. I'm not a cold weather person at all and I miss going walking. Of course, I'm going to definitely have to do more walking starting this week. We are picking up our new puppy and she's very active and hyper so I'll have to do a lot of running and walking with her to tire her out so she won't be bouncing off the walls in the house! My 12 (almost 13 year old) daughter and I have an 8k in 2 weeks, the Shamrock 8k in Virginia Beach. So we're excited about that.

Oh, and I just got my first round of Botox injections for my chronic migraine disorder on Thursday, so hopefully I won't be getting the dibilitating migraines that keep me in bed half the time as much.

It's 38 right now. A little warmer than yesterday, but still chilly! The recipe for the casserole I made yesterday was delicious! I want to play with it a bit and see if I can add vegetables to it to make it a little healthier, but it was tasty! Today I plan on making chicken and vegetable soup. It will make the house smell good!

Doing well with my bike riding this week. Are you walking? We got snow this morning - about 2 inches. The front yard is already melted, except in the shaded areas. Roads were clear though. I tried a new recipe for salmon and potato cakes, and they came out really well. I like SP's recipe for Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken, and I love that recipe for Mississippi Roast. I've never tried doing a meatloaf in a slow cooker, though.

Those are great goals Gail!! With the weather getting better in the spring, it will be easier for you to get outside to walk. I have the luxury now to do more home cooking, and I really enjoy it. Plus, you know what you're cooking with, and you can watch how much/little salt you put in, and other ingredients. Yes, SP has some really, really good recipes!!

emoticon Happy March everyone!
Recently I posted the following on my daily update:

People who wrote down their goals were 42% more likely to achieve them than the ones who didn't. Telling a friend increases this rate to 78%.

Part of that is when you actually write down your goals, you then have to make plans to work on in order to achieve them. They become more solid, instead of just wishful thinking. The second part of that, telling a friend, helps to make you more accountable.

In February, I posted a blog about my goals, and I achieved them!! So, I'm doing it again for March! In the month of March I want to earn 2,500 Fitness Minutes, earn at least 1 Gold medal, and earn at least 100 Spark Points per day during the month of March.

What are your goals and plans for the month of March??
