GETTING RID OF SHIN SPLINTS...
Friday, May 29, 2009      7 comments

I had trouble with my run on monday - horrible shin splints. On wednesday I just did two things a little differently - I walked slowly on the treadmill for 5 minutes, then got off and stretched for a good five or so. My shins hardly hurt at all,... Read more
FINALLY!!!
Thursday, May 28, 2009      11 comments

I hate to admit that I have faults... except when it comes to weight loss. Strange. I am into full disclosure when it comes to weight loss. Maybe it's because I have had so many people tell me that they understand where I am coming from or that ... Read more
ARE THINGS BETTER?
Wednesday, May 27, 2009      13 comments

I don't really know if things are better today. After I wrote the blog yesterday I tried texting my hubby - 7 times. He never answered. I tried calling both his personal cell and his work cell. I left messages on both - saying that we needed to ... Read more
EMOTIONAL EATING...
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      8 comments

I refuse to do it. I won't slip back into emotional eating. I had a horrible day. Started off okay. Had some pain at the gym but worked through it and didn't do any running. Found out somethings about our finances that were NOT good new... Read more
PURE HELL...
Monday, May 25, 2009      10 comments

What was pure hell? My run (walk/run to be specific). I started out so well 4 or 5 weeks ago. I had slight aching in my knees for a couple days and then over that weekend they disappeared and didn't come back. Every once in a while I get knee ac... Read more
MAKING A CHANGE...
Saturday, May 23, 2009      7 comments

Well, based on my non-loss on my weigh-in day (yesterday) and the comments I got from my loyal and knowlegdable Spark Friends, I have decided to make a change in my diet. (BTW - I know I say this all the time, but I think this will officially be... Read more
I LOVE BEING AVERAGELY MEDIOCRE...
Friday, May 22, 2009      7 comments

Okay, no I don't!!! Good title to reel people in though! lol. I kind of have two topics to talk about today. I'll try to keep it short, but I am really not good at that! This week I ate like I have been for the past few weeks. Eating well, ... Read more
I WAS A FRAUD...
Wednesday, May 20, 2009      12 comments

Yeah. I can admit it. I am a fraud. Wait - Correction - I WAS a fraud... for many years. I am a "no holds barred, tell it like it is" kind of girl. So, it's hard to admit that I was lying to myself and others for most of my life. What was ... Read more
CRIED ON THE TREADMILL... AGAIN...
Monday, May 18, 2009      12 comments

Had another emotional day at the gym, but this time I think it's just because I am an emotional girl at heart and this is an emotional process. This makes sense, right? This last weekend I sat down and took out my little gym notebook and f... Read more
MY 5k GOALS...
Saturday, May 16, 2009      6 comments

I have a little notebook that I planned out my 5K in. How long it should take for each .25 mile and the times so that I could just glance at it before I start and know what time I need to work toward. My goal is to finish it in 46:30 or ... Read more
MY BUTT... AND EXTREME EXERCISE...
Saturday, May 16, 2009      8 comments

I looked in the mirror yesterday while wearing these cute little rainbow striped underwear and I thought that my butt looked firmer and smaller. I have a shelf butt... you know, the kind that is squared off on the top by my hips and totally flat... Read more
AFRAID OF 35...
Friday, May 15, 2009      9 comments

I bet you thought I was talking about age 35.... I am not. I am talking about 35 pounds. 35 pounds LOST, that is. I am just a couple pounds away from my 35 pound mark now. It's nerve wracking for me... Seven years ago I got the flu and ende... Read more
MY PERSONAL AMPUTATION...
Thursday, May 14, 2009      11 comments

For those who haven't read my previous blog, my kitty had her tail amputated (there's about 3 inches left) because of... let's call it a dumb mistake. Anyway, she's home now, but I think she's depressed. It's understandable. We are doing what we... Read more
AMPUTATION...
Tuesday, May 12, 2009      13 comments

Last week my kids told me that our cat, Niobe (pronounced Ny-o-bee) had something wrong with her tail. I checked it out... about four inches of it was totally stiff and missing all the hair from the underside. It was obvious she had been licking... Read more
THE MYTH ABOUT LOOSE SKIN...
Sunday, May 10, 2009      46 comments

I'm in a stamping group that I go to once a month on a Saturday morning. There's one woman, Debbie, who has lost over 100 pounds. She had gastric bypass two years ago or so. She has some hanging skin from what I can see (a bit around her face) a... Read more
