Today Was Not A Really Good Day For Me!
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      8 comments

First of all, I woke up with a splitting headache and I haven't had one of those in ages. I just didn't feel like doing anything and that made me miserable. Second, our house was infested with bees and we had to call guys in bee suits to come ... Read more
Eat More, Lose Weight...hmmmm!

For about a month now, I have not lost any weight and although I wasn't gaining, it was getting a little frustrating. I have been religiously entering everything I eat into the SP Nutrition Tracker and for about the last three weeks, it has been... Read more
I'm So Excited!

I have been working with my BF on his diet because he is a big guy and way overweight. He is also what they call prediabetic, so I am concerned about his health too. I did some reading and found a lot of information in Prevention Magazine about... Read more
Taking Charge Of My Life!
Sunday, March 08, 2009      8 comments

This morning, when I got out of bed, I really didn't feel like going for a run or even doing my aerobics. I was feeling like I had no energy and just wanted to sit on the couch. So, I logged into my computer to check my mail. It really is the s... Read more
Flattered By A Machine!
Friday, March 06, 2009      8 comments

Yes, that is correct, I was flattered by a machine! I went to a health fair and had my blood pressure and cholesterol checked in the process. There were lots of booths demonstrating all kinds of health equipment. One of the displays was a tread... Read more

As some of you know, I started tracking my miles walked on July 9, 2008. I have since joined the Spark Virtual Walking/Jogging/Cycling the USA team. They started out from Virginia. So, I track my miles from the day I started, but on my own Atlas... Read more
I Believe In Miracles!
Monday, March 02, 2009      9 comments

It's a miracle. There is no other word for it. I have been with my guy for almost thirteen years. He was a little over 300 pounds when I met him and is still right in that area. He had a lot of muscle when he played football and now, well, that... Read more

This Race Was Not For The Faint Of Heart!
Monday, February 23, 2009      15 comments

I learned a very good lesson today. Not all races are really "fun walk and run" races even if they are advertised that way. The race had an early start(7:30)which meant we drove there in the dark for an hour and fifteen minutes. I'm not really a... Read more

Thursday, February 19, 2009      10 comments

I have to tell ya, I was really taken by surprise when I was asked to Co-Lead the C25K Running For Beginners Team. After the shock, of coarse I accepted. That was right up there with getting presents for Christmas. I had all the normal though... Read more
Yikes, Five Days Away!
Tuesday, February 17, 2009      6 comments

OK, I have to admit, I am going into overdrive on feeling nervous about my upcoming race. First of all, it starts at 7:30 in the morning. I am a night person! Second, I'll have to leave the house at 5:30 AM! Did I tell you, I am a night person? ... Read more
I'm Not Going To Waste My Time!
Friday, February 13, 2009      7 comments

Let me tell you a little story. Several years ago, I belonged to a weight loss center. When I would come in to get weighed, the counselor always asked how I was and I ALWAYS answered, "I don't know, let's see what the scale says." Isn't that s... Read more
January Miles - Saving for Comparison
Monday, February 09, 2009      4 comments

Every time I update my miles walked on my page, I haven't been saving them. I post them on my map but, this is going to be easier to make a month-to-month comparison. This year, I am going to try to do better every month. Being competitive, eve... Read more
