I am so sore this morning, but I've come to a place of contentment in my life. I've learned that there are things that happen that are beyond my control and instead of "stewing over it," I've learned to let it go. (Break into song here.) Read more

A short run

Friday, April 17, 2015      10 comments

I went on a short run to try out my "modified" orthotics. I only went 2.63 miles at about 10 1/2 minute miles, but it felt good. The right one still feels a little off, but that is also my "bad leg" so it may just need some time. The feet ... Read more

After a sugar binge.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015      13 comments

I totally agree with the article that I posted earlier. I've had a couple of "sugar binge" days. Yes, it's that time of the month, but that shouldn't be an excuse. I have caved to the sugar monster and now I have to "detox." My detox is s... Read more

Sugar and our brain.

al-health_n_6904778.html Here is a link to a great article that explains how sugar affects our brains. This may explain why so many of us have a hard time eating jus... Read more

Modified doesn't mean easier.

My chiropractor is sending back my orthotics so they can be adjusted. My right leg has been complaining a lot. I think it may be the sciatic nerve. He says I was off when I was adjusted. This morning I did a modified plank and modified sid... Read more

Rainbow Bridge

Wednesday, April 08, 2015      26 comments

Tonight I took our little Mia to the vet and now she is at the Rainbow Bridge. It was time and there was nothing we could do to make her comfortable. She had put herself in a dog kennel and that told me that she was ready to go. She is no... Read more

An excuse

Tuesday, April 07, 2015      10 comments

I used the bad news of yesterday to do some emotional eating. Yes, too much of just crap. I am determined to do better today. Mia had a great night. Friends stopped by to see her, she ate ham and potatoes and got lots of loving. We have ... Read more

Some sad news.

My oldest daughter got a puppy for her tenth birthday. She is now 20 and her dog is now 10. We found out today that little Mia has cancer. It is throughout her entire urinary tract. We've had a couple of friends visit her to say their goo... Read more

Counting blessings.

Sunday, April 05, 2015      12 comments

I am counting blessings on this Easter day! I am putting Sparkpeople and all of my sparkfriends on the list. I am very content with who I am, what I am doing and where my life is going. I am blessed beyond belief and I want to thank all of you ... Read more

Wow, super sore!

Saturday, April 04, 2015      12 comments

Maybe it wasn't such a great idea not to use my orthotics yesterday. I am super sore almost to the bones. My right hamstring is super tight and I get a pain in my leg, especially when driving. The pain goes down my leg and kind of wraps around m... Read more

Going with the flow.

Friday, April 03, 2015      11 comments

One of my fellow sparkfriends, Kaligirl, mentioned going with the flow. That is exactly how I feel. Between work, the kids activities and trying to get ready for the marathon relay I am going with the flow. It feels Read more

A new sore.

Thursday, April 02, 2015      13 comments

I went on a 6 1/2 mile run on Wednesday and man am I sore! I need to take my right orthotic back as it keeps giving me a blister when I run. My right leg is so sore and I think it may be because of the orthotic, too. Both of my hamstrings ... Read more

Loving my sparkfriends

Tuesday, March 31, 2015      10 comments

I am loving my sparkfriends. Of course I always do, but recent comments have made me realize just how blessed I am. I am blessed not only to have found Spark, but to have met so many wonderful and supportive people on-line. I never would h... Read more

No more fast runs, no more long runs, just runs.

Sunday, March 29, 2015      15 comments

It's been a busy week and weekend. I was getting ready for my Mom's surprise 70th birthday party that we had yesterday. Lots of cleaning, shopping and cooking. It was a success!! She had no clue! We had around 50 people. It was a great turnout a... Read more

The longest run of the year, so far.

Tuesday, March 24, 2015      13 comments

I went out last night and ran 4.26 miles. It was a slow run with an average of 10.30 minute miles, but I was running! I still am surprised how nonchalant I am about the time. I am VERY competitive, especially with myself. However, I know if I w... Read more
