Thursday, October 30, 2008      3 comments

Okay, drum roll please.... My pushup count for tonight (the interim pushup test for the 100 pushup challenge) was 41! When I quit, I collapsed on the floor, didn't move for minutes. My heart was racing at serious aerobic levels ... Read more

This morning I headed out for my planned 10K run. My overall time was 1:15:41. But I survived! The first 9/10ths of a mile was straight up hill. That sucked! And the first 3 miles was almost all up and down hills. I also discovered in ... Read more

I realized it has been a while since I mentioned my stepmother in a blog. I believe where we left off was that she had been diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer which has an average 10 month life expectancy. Quick history for those of you... Read more
Race For The Cure - 5K
Sunday, October 19, 2008      2 comments

I realized last night while giving Beth a bath that the date was 10/18. A thought sparked in the back of my head, "Wait... isn't the date of the Race For The Cure the 19th?" So I checked my calendar and realized that I came very close to missi... Read more
Conflicted feelings, surprising progress, great milestone

This is going to be a weird and rambling entry in my blog. That last sentence initially included a "probably", but I struck it. The rambling and reflection is not going to be helped by the fact that I currently have Pink Floyd's "Wish You Wer... Read more

Yup, a second blog entry from me today. But this topic is shorter and just doesn't belong in a One Hundred Pushups Challenge entry. I forgot to mention the results of the Dr's appt for my daughter before we went on vacation. She defin... Read more

Last Saturday I took my kids across the country to my sister's horse farm in Virginia. We flew non-stop from LAX to Dulles; just me and the kids. I'd bought some small toys and books for the plane to pull out whenever they started to go stir c... Read more
Progress! And a little perspective on time (Photo too!)
Wednesday, October 01, 2008      6 comments

[This photo can also be found in my photo gallery] I mentioned in a previous blog entry that I'd been being pretty good and was a bit frustrated that I continued to see 166.x on the scale every morning for a few weeks straight. I discovere... Read more
Thinking about half marathon, and update on abs!
Sunday, September 28, 2008      0 comments

I weighed in for my official weigh-in yesterday. 166.8. It's a little eerie. I've seen 166.x every single morning for 3 weeks. Normally I'll bounce around in a 3 lb range when I stay the same. This time I'm dead on the 166.x every single ti... Read more

I've just joined one of the challenges on SparkPeople. I've done challenges in the past when I was on eDiets years ago and lost a lot of weight. I'm hoping the 12-week challenge of the "BLC-8 BIGGEST LOSER 12 Week Challenge" will get me back i... Read more
