Yesterday I rejoined Weight Watchers. After more than 7 years as a free lifetime member (only had to pay once when I was over my WW goal weight of 139 -- but I've been as low as 122.8) I had skipped my WW meetings and weigh ins the last 3 months... Read more

4 good eating days in a row! The scale is looking much better, 131.4 this morning. There were a few days I just couldn't bring myself to stand on the scale. After one good eating day I felt much better (bloating/sodium weight going) and weighed ... Read more

I did make 28,000 steps yesterday between my run and Disney adventure. However, even with the calories burned, I went over my calorie range. Darn! I intend to do much better today. For several weeks I'd gotten in the habit of NOT eating after su... Read more

Sunday at 1pm I was ready to give up running forever. I was nauseated. My calves and hamstrings were suffering from cramps and spasms. But more than the physical issues, I was just so disappointed that I did not run the Space Coast Relay faster ... Read more
OK, Time to Get on to Other Goals

I re-read yesterday's blog and am somewhat embarrassed I'm so whiny. (Wa Wa Wa) Quite a while back I accepted that in 5K races it is highly unlikely I will PR (achieve a personal record). My 27:33 race in April of 2014 I suspect will always be m... Read more

My niece did really well yesterday, finishing her third full marathon in six weeks. She has gotten faster each time = 3 PRs in 6 weeks. I am just so proud of her. She even stopped to take a picture with a springer spaniel. She owns 2 of them; th... Read more

Brief report about the Space Coast Marathon Relay: The pass from my relay partner went smoothly, although he was 10 minutes behind his predicted time. I enjoyed the first 9 miles, and was on pace for a PR. In mile 11 my muscles started tightenin... Read more

Forgot to Take Pictures

I should have taken some pictures! Friday morning hubby and I went to a neighboring town for our first round dance lesson. I loved it! The man served as the cuer; in square dance it is a "caller" telling you what steps to do; in round danc... Read more
