It's Summer! Flowers, warmth and happiness!

Friday, July 25, 2014      3 comments

It seems to me that people who weigh a "normal" weight say they go up and down maybe 5 or 10 pounds. I wish I could say that about myself, but I go up and down about 20-25 pounds at a time. That doesn't seem normal? I guess I must eat really ... Read more

Just Weird Stuff

Monday, June 30, 2014      2 comments

Nursing slight knee pain, I think caused by lack of stability so I wore my Brooks instead of Saucony's and my feet definitely felt more stable. I'm sitting here now with an ice pack around my knee, and will apply heat tonight before bed. I am in... Read more

I Want To Run!!!

Friday, April 25, 2014      2 comments

I am SO READY to start running again! The temperature in Chicago has warmed up and it is so, so nice to be outside, but for now all I can do is walk the dog. Perhaps I (and my dog as well) should be thankful for even that! Two weeks after... Read more

Tuesday, March 25, 2014      4 comments

The weirdest thing happened to me and I hope I can help someone else. For the past 4-5 days I've been having stomach aches that won't go away. I can't even imagine how many Motrin I took, but I do know how many laxatives. 14. And 3 gas x. ... Read more

Here We Go! : )

Tuesday, March 11, 2014      4 comments

Try, try again. I think never giving up is the key, everyone slides once in awhile. Besides, who wants to hang out with someone who is perfect all the time? : ) I certainly don't. I would want to accidentally close her head in my trunk. (I a... Read more

Try again, once more.

Saturday, February 01, 2014      3 comments

It has been snowy and icy outside for what seems like months and I haven't been running. I but the bullet and ran a short distance on the dreadmill this morning and couldn't decide if it was so awful because I haven't been running or it was just... Read more

All Out Thanksgiving!

Tuesday, December 03, 2013      4 comments

How did everyone do over Thanksgiving? Me? Not so well. Two Thanksgiving meals, but at least one was completely prepared by me and I used several Spark People recipes that turned out to be very good! I didn't dare tell my husband that he was... Read more

A New Food Challenge I Had!

Friday, November 15, 2013      3 comments

I had a completely new food challenge last night that I hadn't encountered in the past. When I go to a restaurant, I can choose my meal and ask for this on the side or substitutions. Meals with friends or extended family, you can kind of choo... Read more

Divulging Something Private

Monday, November 11, 2013      5 comments

I've decided to share something here that I never tell people "in real life". Only my husband and my doctors know. I have Bipolar 2 disorder, and for anyone who is not familiar with what that means, I mostly get very depressed and every great,... Read more

Start Again - I Will Never Give Up! : )

Thursday, November 07, 2013      7 comments

Started program AGAIN! Maybe the idea is to never give up. I went for almost two years and only "backslid" for a day at a time. What was the difference in motivation and willpower that time compared to these last 10-15 pounds? Ugh! I ca... Read more

Insight into my Habits - My Bad Ones

Monday, September 30, 2013      1 comments

I ate terribly for three days. I didn't binge, just made very poor food choices. I felt so awful and terrible about it, so I tried something new for a change. This time, instead of waiting a week to weigh, I went ahead and weighed myself so I... Read more

Running Now A Bit Challenging

Thursday, September 26, 2013      5 comments

Since it's now colder in the early mornings in Chicago, I've run into a problem, but it's not what you think. I ran when it was 53 degrees in a tank top and shorts before the sun came up on Saturday and haven't run since (I plan to this morning... Read more

After Consideration, A Goal Met. : )

Sunday, September 01, 2013      4 comments

I've been doing endurance and speed training to finish a 10k in less than 60 minutes which will end in November. I had decided today I would see how I had improved in a 5 k. I'm so torn! My first 5k in September 2011 was finished a bit ov... Read more

Thyroid Problem? Never Saw That Coming

Friday, August 30, 2013      8 comments

I've been feeling pretty awful for awhile - overwhelming fatigue, achy like I have the flu but I know I don't, just all of these strange symptoms so I went to the doctor today. He's pretty convinced I have a thyroid problem but I must get a blo... Read more
