"I did it. I did it. I did it." I ran my first 5k. No stellar time - it took over 50 minutes. Yes, there were people that walked faster than I ran, but I didn't let that deter me. I just kept going. I thought about switching to walki... Read more
Like Mike
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      6 comments

So I go through mental dramas of my own and then somewhere here or on Biggest Loser will have the same issue. For example, Mike was having issues with how far he has to go. I keep doing that too. It doesn't matter that I have lost the w... Read more
Should I feel guilty?

I think I've finally have my head back in the game. The end of the week I did much better and the scale is moving down again slowly - yeah. This is all good considering my first 5k is coming up quickly. I'm still hoping I can run the whole t... Read more
Need to get my head in the game!
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      3 comments

So on May 1st, I made a list of goals for the month, most of which I have already blown. I seriously need to get my head in the game because right now it isn't going well. A horrible headache last night and the medicine I took to overcome it d... Read more
It's May! It's May! The Lovely Month of May!

I am so glad that April is over and May is here, even if it was a scorcher of a day. 91 degrees. April used to be one of my favorite months but lost that favored status as family members began to die during that month. 4/5/03 - my MIL passes... Read more
Occasionally I need to remind myself . . .

Sometimes I get wrapped up in how far I have to go in my fitness and weight loss journey and in life myself. Occasionally I need to remind myself how far i've come. This morning as I heard S wake up after sleeping all night in his bed by... Read more

The hot bath, aspirin, and rest worked. Only a few minor aches and pains this morning - yeah. I was able to walk fine today and even succeeded in remembering to do and actually do my strength training. In other good news, I won the ANDYW ... Read more

My exercising may be out of commission for a few days. I hope not. I'm hoping that I can take some aspiring and feel better in the morning, but right now, I ache. The boys and I were playing in the backyard. I thought it would be fun to run... Read more

Today was good and bad all at once - what else is new?
Saturday, April 17, 2010      4 comments

I love my sons, but they were both in rare form today. L has been for a couple of days. Completely driving me the very short trip to insanity. I still love him to death, but if I didn't know better, I'd swear he got into red 40 or something. ... Read more
"You shouldn't be running" "Oh yes, I should"
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      4 comments

We all can tell by looking at my sparkpage that I still have a way to go as I get healthy. I am aware of that and accept that. What I don't understand is why people think they should tell me that I shouldn't be running - that walking is fin... Read more

I should be catching up with my teams and I will try to do that tomorrow. I just wanted to write a little bit and try to get to sleep at a semi decent hour. I attempted to walk/run this morning. The walking was fine, the running was h... Read more
Back to Normalcy
Sunday, April 11, 2010      2 comments

This week my plan is to get back to normal or my semblance of it anyway. Not being normal getting completely back to normal would be pretty near impossible. However, the last week and a half have been totally outside the realm of normalcy (eve... Read more

I can't believe that in a few minutes it will be a week since I was writing the blog about the treadmill and the phone rang and life became different especially for my brother. Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers. He is doing much be... Read more
Thank you everyone just for being there

I haven't had and I still don't have the time to respond to the outpouring of thoughts, prayers, etc, extended to me, my brother, and our family. It is amazing the love that I feel from a bunch of people I only know as screen names, but our clo... Read more
