1001
Sunday, June 26, 2016      10 comments

Today my log in streak is 1001 days. I have never committed to something that long, but this is a good streak for me. I am still struggling with trying to get the 5 lbs. off that my body seems set on keeping. I eat within my calorie range ... Read more
Boot Camp Almost Kicked My Butt
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      8 comments

I went to boot camp with my younger, 19 year old, daughter tonight. It was somewhere in the mid 90's and humid. I was doing pretty good until the last rotation. Then, "it" hit me! That feeling that I drank way too much water. The light head... Read more
I got busy!

Summer school started and my class is basically the same as the one I had in the fall. A more challenging group, but good kids. I was able to run once. Same time per mile, shorter distance, but it felt much more difficult. Some runs are lik... Read more
A change of plans.

First, I have to share that I ran 8 miles!! I averaged 11 minute miles. I will take it! Secondly, I have spoke to many people today and continued to research hypothyroidism. After doing such, I don't think I'll be able to manage my condition on ... Read more
Going natural
Monday, May 30, 2016      8 comments

I have been reading about hypothyroidism. I've read that taking meds will cause your thyroid to stop and basically shutdown. I've also been reading about what to eat and what not to eat. So I may be crazy, but I'm going to stop taking my meds an... Read more

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

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
