My “parole officer” brought me back to reality this morning. In the last 10 days I gained nearly 3 pounds. That’s not a lot compared to the fluctuations I’ve read about here on SP, but for me it’s significant. Since reaching maintenance... Read more

Unless acted on by an outside force, a body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. At least that’s what I remember from my HS/College Physics classes. My body was in motion just about every day until ... Read more

When “something going around” finally gets around to you

How ironic to be given SP “consistency awards” on the very day I became INconsistent. All winter as so many around me were dropping from the flu or some respiratory problem, I marched ahead hardly missing a beat as I dodged those with hacki... Read more
There’s a hole in my new tights! Stupid dog owner!

It was a little dog, a leashed dog. So far so good. I was running along the sidewalk in town as a woman in her bathrobe came towards me walking her dog. I moved into the street so they could have the whole sidewalk to themselves. The friend... Read more

Where you were. - Who you were with - How you felt afterwards. My first TIME was on Thanksgiving Day in Northern VA. I was there alone, but surrounded by 1000 people and my TIME was 30:51. Yes, I’m referring to my first 5K 25 year... Read more
My very own “wardrobe malfunction” - SP related

A race that anyone can win. Your speed doesn’t matter
Monday, February 25, 2013 25 comments
This is not a deceptive title hiding some deep philosophy. I don’t mean the “race of life” or racing to a “new you.” This is a real road race - a 4 mile race where you “predict your finishing time” on your registration form. Awards are gi... Read more

Really Bobby? How do you know we’re rich? “Because we have everything we need and don’t need” Obviously we weren’t really rich, but in my son’s world with limited perspective, everything was going really well. Rich means more th... Read more
When you can ditch the scale and when it can be risky
Saturday, February 23, 2013 23 comments
Since I’m the type of person who tries to see both sides of an issue, this topic fascinates me. As I’ve written before, I weigh daily, every morning. It’s just like brushing my teeth. It’s no big deal. Yet, I understand the frust... Read more
