Had a great sunrise run this morning with 2 guys and 7 women in my group and about 10 more groups, each one going their own pace. One fellow runner posted some good pictures to FaceBook. I saw them. I was in a couple. Now I can't find them. Oh, ... Read more
Sustainable? Time Will Tell

Today the scale says 124.0. That is 88 pounds below my all time high in 1999; 53 pounds below my December 2008 weight when I started my current healthy lifestyle effort. I've been this weight before a couple times. I've always felt excited an... Read more

Natalie and I are still savoring our 5K experience yesterday. I went her speed for the first 3.05 miles (run 25 seconds/walk 30 seconds), but the last .05 we sprinted and she loved, loved, loved out-sprinting me at the end. Good for Natalie!! ... Read more

Natalie and I arrived before 6am for the 7am 5k. We already have our race numbers and would not have had to be here so soon. Oh well. We got a great pa... Read more
Sunsets

Another lovely sunset walk this evening. I did 50 minutes of elliptical and 10 flights of stairs at the Y today, but did not have in my 20,000 steps. So I chose a sunset walk and loved every minute of it. ... Read more

A different playground today. DD had to be at work at 11am, so I enjoyed the social hour and one hour of Senior Dance, but now I am on playground duty.... Read more

Just a Rainy Day Blog
Monday, July 31, 2017      17 comments

I was thankful for the dry treadmill while the tropical storm dumped a tremendous amount of rain in my neighborhood. The roads looked like rivers, but luckily they drained quickly, and I was able to drive to the Y and back without incident. I go... Read more
More Sunset, Sunrise Walks
Thursday, July 27, 2017      19 comments

I've really been enjoying my walks and runs at sunset and sunrise. I love the trees in our neighborhood, too, but they do make it much more challenging to see the sky. Also, I can no longer see the sunrise from the street in front of my home due... Read more
Not Exactly in Black and White
Monday, July 24, 2017      22 comments

It could not be clearer if it were in black and white. When I weigh (orange dots) every day I am doing much better than on days I don't weigh (blue dots). Of course, I want to weigh when I think I'm going down and not so much on days I suspect I... Read more
Shouldn't Laugh at This One
Friday, July 21, 2017      20 comments

As I sat down, 10 year old Natalie bumped my elbow hard, not on purpose, but carelessly. My drink spilled down the front of my shirt. Natalie almost laughed. "Natalie, what do you say?" I said. "You've got something all over your shir... Read more
