I'm noticing real changes in me. Not physical changes. These crazy lifestyle changes the sparkpeople are always carrying on about. The Big Enlightment came on Friday. I had a horrible, horrible day - the burst into unexpected tears kind of horri... Read more

What have I gotten myself into?
Monday, September 05, 2011      2 comments

I joined the Pimp My (P)ride challenge. It starts tomorrow, but I'm not sure exactly what that means. I know it means strength training. I know it means pushing myself. I know I can do that. I did it by reaching my goal of running 3.1 miles by L... Read more

My husband and I are on vacation. We're down the shore (NJ, if you don't know). Not that where we are is relevant. Long drives make my hip hurt. It really aggravates the ileosacral joint which is where all my back and hip troubles are. Bef... Read more

I haven't been on spark for a while. I've been tracking food for the most part, but I was sick and miserable for most of August so far. I just started feeling good again yesterday and went for a run. While I was in the shower, I noticed my big t... Read more

My moaning and groaning has been getting quieter. The number on the scale is finally moving downward. Again, I know I shouldn't complain because my clothes have been getting looser, I feel better, I look better, but dang it all, I want to weigh ... Read more
Fear on the Riverwalk
Saturday, July 16, 2011      1 comments

Last week on the Riverwalk, a young woman was raped at 9:30 in the morning. That's where I go running. My husband was adamant that I run with him or change my route. I changed my route. He's much faster than me and I'd feel bad that he was slowi... Read more

When I went to the doctor last Thursday, I confessed that my hip was bothering me for more than a year. It'd been getting worse lately. Instead of the occasional sharp twinge, I was dealing with a constant, low level ache. I know what it is. I'v... Read more
I Want Testosterone!
Saturday, June 25, 2011      1 comments

My husband and I have always been close in weight. When we married, I weighed 143 pounds and he weighed about 155. I've always had a rule, the husband must weigh more than the wife. Only recently has this rule been tested. He's been on the good ... Read more
