Changes
Sunday, May 22, 2016      10 comments

The song Changes is appropriate for my life right now. I am trying to find those non scale victories. I am finding some. I decided not to join the next weight maintenance challenge. It is too frustrating and discouraging to look at the nu... Read more
Still battling.
Thursday, May 19, 2016      17 comments

I am still battling this hypothyroidism. I am trying not to get frustrated, but UGH! My weight is not "reducing," even though I am eating right and exercising. It is so frustrating! All I can do is keep trying. My levels aren't evaluated un... Read more
Finally!
Sunday, May 15, 2016      12 comments

Finally, I had a "good" run. What I consider a good run is when I am enjoying it and I'm just clipping along allowing my mind to think. It was a rough start, but I settled in. It was one of those runs that I could have gone further, but I wanted... Read more
Struggling and some good news.

I am still struggling with this thyroid issue. I am trying to get back to my goal weight and then, to the lower end of my weight range. It is so frustrating!!! I did get some good news. My doc found a lump in one of "the girls" and sent me... Read more

Second run!
Sunday, May 08, 2016      9 comments

It was so nice out and since I had to mail some letters, I took the dog and we ran/walked to the post office. There and back is a nice 4.35 miles. My dog, Halo, isn't in distance shape, but he loves the sprints. We make an odd running team, but ... Read more
Pity party is officially over.
Saturday, May 07, 2016      15 comments

I'll admit, I've taken full advantage of my news in the way of a pity party. I've eaten like crap every night. I was using my hypothyroid diagnosis as an excuse and the scale and my body shows it. The numbers are up, duh! I feel bloated and slug... Read more
Not the answer I wanted.

I made the annual trip to the doctor. However, mine was over 18 months ago. I make an appointment and a couple of weeks before it, I'd get a call saying the doctor was going on vacation at that time. I found out why I've been feeling so ti... Read more
Ugh, weather.
Saturday, April 30, 2016      10 comments

Our rainy weather is making it difficult to run. I am using my elliptical which is a good workout. It really makes me sweat and it causes a nice elevated heart rate. I am also focusing on my weight. I think running will be a bit easier if ... Read more
All we can do is try.

I went on my second run in the past three days. It was not easy! First note to self, don't eat pot roast and potatoes an hour before running. Second note to self, it is a good idea to be dropped off miles from home so you can run back. Nothing i... Read more
Selling ourselves short!
Sunday, April 17, 2016      19 comments

I have been in a slump lately. Lots of reasons, but all are causing frustration. The biggest is just not being where I was two years ago athletically and weight wise. At my age a couple of years can make a big difference. However, I have come to... Read more
I agree!

I, like most of you, don't like the use of supplements. It was a moment of weakness and frustration with things not going the way I want. I will NOT take a supplement and just go back to really watching my nutrition and try to increase my exerci... Read more
Less carbs and/or supplements?
Sunday, April 10, 2016      7 comments

I've read a lot and I've been talking to others and many say as we get older we should restrict carbs more. This is a way to offset the "natural weight gain" that comes with perimenopause. What is your opinions? A couple that I know are t... Read more
Sick and sparking.
Tuesday, April 05, 2016      16 comments

I never get sick, but I came home early yesterday. I feel like a truck hit me. It will be a struggle to get my 30 minutes of exercise in. I will prevail, though. I am staying within my weight range, but can't seem to get to the lower end.... Read more
