Thursday, July 08, 2010      14 comments

OK, There it is, out in the open. I don't know why it surprises me that I can gain weight so easily. I think we all know by now that sugar in the enabler for fat. Last year I was doing really well and lost a total of 30 pounds. I felt wonderful... Read more

When I first started this journey, I had no idea that I would still be with it almost two years later. I usually get tired of things much more quickly than that, but as part of my weight loss plan, I vowed to get my body moving. I started walk... Read more
What A Beautiful Day For A Race!
Sunday, May 30, 2010      11 comments

It turned out to be one of those perfect days, so even getting up at 4:30 didn't dampen my spirits. We didn't have to leave until 6:00, but I couldn't sleep any longer. I was so excited, you would have thought it was my first race. Well, it wa... Read more
You Would Have Thought I Had Won At The Olympics!
Sunday, May 09, 2010      20 comments

OK, So it wasn't the Olympics, but you couldn't have proved it by my excitement. My time was 36:14 so, it wasn't my fastest race, but it was the one that got me a second place medal in my age group. For not being a morning person, I have ... Read more
What The Heck????
Sunday, May 02, 2010      13 comments

I hover from 157 to 161 and I haven't made any progress in months. It even bothered me so much that I dropped out of some challenges because I felt I was bringing the team totals down. What the heck is that all about? I think I am motivated an... Read more

Do I Like Racing Or What?
Sunday, April 04, 2010      15 comments

Do I like racing or what? I was up at 4:30 and that is hugh for someone that likes to sleep in on the weekends. Fortunately, the weather was really in our favor. No rain and te... Read more
An Unusual Obstacle!
Friday, March 26, 2010      21 comments

I have read several racing blogs about cold weather and hugh inclines, but I just had an unusual story I had to tell. I live in a golf community with lots of little lakes and walking paths cutting through the beautiful trees. The sun was out a... Read more
One Of These Days, I'm Going To Get It Right!
Sunday, March 21, 2010      15 comments

You would think after a year and a half I would know what I am doing, but I'm still riding that roller-coaster. I wouldn't be telling the truth if I said I don't know why, yet that is what I always say. When I weighed this morning, I has horri... Read more
What A Thrill Just To Be There!
Sunday, March 14, 2010      30 comments

The Race For The Cure event on March 13, 2010, was one of the best experiences of my life. Our team from Lake Fairways, with Rose Aubut as captain, entered the race. Rose is a fantastic person and a 31 year cancer survivor. It was because of ... Read more

Unbelievable!
Sunday, February 28, 2010      17 comments

I think my net loss for the month was only 1 pound. I went up and down a couple of times before I settled in to my routine. I'm happy with a net loss, but what is unbelievable to me are my measurements. I lost a total of 7 inches. I was amazed!... Read more
