It's okay to forget to be here!!

Tuesday, May 03, 2016      1 comments

Well, I didn't really forget to be here. I was on vacation. Yep, wonderful vacation. I had a plan, a plan to keep up my workouts, even if only every other day. But, you what they say about the best laid plans. Ha ha. My hubby got sick first, and... Read more

Creating Habits

Sunday, April 17, 2016      2 comments

Well, as my SP friends on here know, I have been sorta addicted to doing challenges. I started with the 28 day boot camp challenge. I really only did that because I had started it some time ago and never finished, so I felt compelled to finally ... Read more

What I did and didn't do

Sunday, April 10, 2016      1 comments

I usually blog about progress from my last week, but really, there hasn't been any. Everything is the same which I expected with not doing any cardio at all. So, thought I would write about what I have done and not done in my quest here for the ... Read more

Being a tortoise isn't a bad thing!

Sunday, April 03, 2016      5 comments

Well, being a tortoise isn't bad. I would rather be that than the hare. Why? Because slow and steady wins the race. And that is my attitude when I run races. I start off slow and keep steady so I can finish strong. And that is exactly how my wei... Read more

A low week ending on a high note!

Sunday, March 27, 2016      3 comments

Well, been a low week for me. Just in a funk that I couldn't shake like in the past. Mostly low because I felt after so long I should have been making better strides in my weight loss. I continued on with my efforts, doing my daily challenge exe... Read more

Yesterday I would have blogged as I have been but I was in a depression about my inability to lose weight. Back in January I had my husband take two photos of me, front and side view so I could look at them, stay motivated and then compare down ... Read more

Have patience it pays off.

Sunday, March 13, 2016      3 comments

Well, today was my log in day and the end of my 28-day boot camp and though I got frustrated at times and depressed at the weekly sight of my scale not moving, today I am happy to say it finally did!! I lost 2 pounds. May not seem like much to m... Read more

Frustrated but determined!!

Sunday, March 06, 2016      6 comments

Today was my weigh in and I am frustrated that I gained back the only pound I have lost since the first of the year. But, I am determined to get this weight off and lose inches. I did lose some inches last week and this week I stayed steady so I... Read more

Progress comes in many forms

Sunday, February 28, 2016      3 comments

I was afraid to get on the scale. And as I feared, no weight loss. But, I know that you can lose one week, not another, and then lose the following week. I don't give up on that. My progress though came not in weight loss, but the loss of inches... Read more

First week success!!

Sunday, February 21, 2016      2 comments

Well, my first week back at Sparkpeople and I have success. I am following the 28-Day Bootcamp and I did well. I lost 1 pound this week. Yay! I feel more energized even after just one week. We had 60 degree weather yesterday and I decided to go ... Read more

Been so long

Monday, February 15, 2016      3 comments

My last blog entry was in 2013 when I ran the Hartford Marathon. I blogged through my training then on race day. It was an experience I will never forget. And, it is one I would love to repeat. I have gained weight due to a medical condit... Read more

Marathon Day!!!

Monday, October 14, 2013      3 comments

Well, been a month almost since my last entry. Was a hard month with my training lacking and the fact that I couldn't seem to master a 20 mile run before the race. This fact worried me considerably. I got lots of encouragement from family and fr... Read more

Marathon Training - Week 20

Sunday, September 15, 2013      1 comments

I feel like I was beat up today. I had a horrible night sleep and my hip acting up so my 20 mile run today was more like 14 miles. Ugh. I was not a happy camper about that. The entire run felt just bad from the word go! I kept pushing in hopes t... Read more

Marathon Training- Weeks 18 & 19

Wednesday, September 11, 2013      1 comments

I was very much looking forward to my 20 mile run. I am not sure how I have been able to keep up with these increases since my training hasn't actually been text book. Or, followed too closely to the plan. But, I somehow have been able to. I thi... Read more

Marathon Training - Weeks 16 &17

Sunday, August 25, 2013      2 comments

I hate set backs. Ugh. After my last long run, getting my training in through the week was challenging. Then, Saturday hit and my back began to spasm. I was in so much pain just walking. So, I didn't do the shorter run scheduled for last Sunday ... Read more
