Taking advantage

Thursday, February 11, 2016      22 comments

There is something particularly satisfying about getting outdoors to run on what turns out to be the best day of the week to do so. Turns out it was a much better substitute run than the originally planned one would have been. The Universe... Read more

But then we didn't run...

Wednesday, February 10, 2016      24 comments

I packed the bag to run at noon, and was greeted as I brewed my first mug of coffee at the office by my running buddy who said, "I'm letting you down already". Apparently she'd read the same forecast as I about the high winds & low temps and wa... Read more

I miss my higher weight

Knew that would get you in here! emoticon Seriously, there is ONE time of year / type of weather that makes me ... Read more

I still love Mondays

Monday, February 08, 2016      29 comments

I especially love Mondays when I have 1) Got enough sleep over the weekend, 2) Been active, and 3) Invested in preparing for the week ahead. All three of those were true of this weekend. Add to "the old guy" getting his Super Bowl win that... Read more

Souper-bowl Sunday

Sunday, February 07, 2016      23 comments

Yep, I chopped up my veggies and made my big pot of soup, having polished off the split pea soup last week. Beets, parsnips, turnips, green beans and cauliflower are part of my "whatever's left in the 'fridge" soup this week. Quite a tasty sup... Read more

Bonus blog - the trail shoes

Saturday, February 06, 2016      28 comments

Since someone asked: here are the shoes I run in on snow / ice. I also use them when shoveling snow or for off-road running, all seasons. They are trail shoes. Note the soles with rubber spikes on them... kind of like mud/snow tires, only fo... Read more

Seven miles on ice

Saturday, February 06, 2016      28 comments

We are up to seven miles on the so-called "long" runs. With the snow storm that blew through here in the lower 30's temps, there has been melting and re-freezing. The Thursday Red Dress Dash saw a few very ugly blocks where the downtown proper... Read more

Despite how I got there...

I did stop myself from resenting being a part of the Red Dress Dash. I had a good time. Even the boss was a good sport and showed up in his red dress: Read more

Binging while writing blog, trashing the blog

Thursday, February 04, 2016      34 comments

That's exactly the order of events yesterday. I declared it an "extra" snow day, or rather "slick roads" day yesterday. And that's a danger zone for me... especially as the sun came out, the wind wasn't too bad, and my walks were already clear... Read more

Snow Day

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      31 comments

It really is quite pretty. As long as I'm inside, safe and warm. The power flickering wasn't all that fun... but it *did* come right back. This time. It's still coming down. The TV news folks are now saying 5 to 10 inches... but you know ho... Read more

Deep Dark Fears or no, life goes on!

Monday, February 01, 2016      23 comments

"Do it anyway". Short for lack of time: * The bag is packed. Eat what's in it, that's why you packed it. * Remember to go to recess. * Remember to breathe and prioritize. * Be kind to yourself as you would be to your best f... Read more

So what about those deep dark fears?

Sunday, January 31, 2016      31 comments

We lay a lot of story on top of the deep dark fears, but they lurk, and sometimes they blind-side us. Whenever I find myself "back in the food" you can bet it's not JUST because somebody brought donuts to work! The sugar-filled crap or the sal... Read more

How to climb out of the hole

Friday, January 29, 2016      44 comments

Simple, right? One hand-hold at a time! Yesterday I packed the bag. I didn't eat what was in it. I indulged in some off-plan eating. But I did make ONE good decision, part way through my afternoon recess... I didn't buy MORE. I let mys... Read more

Baby steps and CREDIT

Thursday, January 28, 2016      32 comments

Often I find that I use illness as an excuse to "fall off the wagon", i.e. to indulge in some comfort eating. "I feel lousy anyway, I might as well see if this old friend of a food will make me feel a *little* better, even temporarily." An... Read more

Self-pity Sunday

Sunday, January 24, 2016      36 comments

Went through about three boxes of *these* today... ah-choo! Yesterday morning at 7 I ran 6 miles with the group in about 20F with a 10 mph he... Read more
