sleep is wonderful!
So, after napping yesterday, I still went to sleep at 9:30 and slept like a log. When I got up this morning dh recommended I take another day "off" and just walk the poochies instead of running. Well, I know he means well so I agreed even though... Read more
slam, bam, into the wall
After such an active day yesterday, I ended up not being able to sleep. Didn't help that I had a very technical project at work that took hours today. I sat there chugging through the intricate tedium with tears in my eyes and nose running. Pret... Read more
what I learned from pecan pie
Yesterday came home from work and dh had made steak, mushrooms, new potatoes, salad, french bread and pecan pie.........well, the pie was made by Mrs. Smith, but he did cook it. I had just a couple of bites of the steak, enjoyed the rest of the ... Read more
running slower clock ticking beautiful sight!
I ended up biking over 20 miles yesterday. Last night I thought my legs were just going to cramp right off my body. Took some calcium, magnesium and zinc and a couple of ibuprophen before bed and slept just fine.
This morning, however, was ... Read more
new day...........down 1.5
I'm changing my weight tracker today. I've had basically the same one since beginning February a year ago. Now I will set it to lose 20 by February 14th. When (NOT IF) I finally make it there, I will no longer be considered overweight. Admittedl... Read more
If this is the best it is going to get...
Just read a high lighted blog from another member about climbing monkey bars. It made me think about something one of my dd s said the other day. If this is the best it is going to get, am I willing to accept that joyfully or will I choose bitte... Read more
Am I better? So sick of this.
So, here I am griping again. I jogged over 4 plus walked another with MIL. DH had told me he thought the scales were off (they are doctor scales). Sure enough, they needed adjusting with the screw driver to zero out. Dang, another 1/2 pound adde... Read more
must say I'm frustrated. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just looked at my reports of my BMR vs calorie intake and I have been totally consistently under for a month and the scales aren't moving. Right now I'm so frustrated. I biked over 11 miles yesterday, as hard as I could, cut 11 minutes off my ... Read more
Still out here camping. Biked for an hour yesterday plus almost two hours of sailing. I have tracked all my intake as best I could. Just thinking, as long as I go under my burned calories by 500 per day I will lose a pound a week. The only way t... Read more
So, here I am at the end of the day, or at least at 6:21, and I still have 400 calories to eat. Hmm. How many more servings of green beans is that? Or, maybe, one more taco will do the trick. This is just weird. I love counting my calories when ... Read more
where will I be tomorrow??
Today had its battles. I ran my 4, worked until 6, and then went out with friends.....I was so hungry and had been counting my foods all day. The restaurant, Chow, is known for its fresh ground meats, fresh cut sweet potato fries, fresh salads, ... Read more
jogging walking thinking praying
did my 4 miles and then walked 40 min with mil....a slow 1.2. Realize that I start out looking down at the path and then slowly start lifting my eyes to the trees as I get warmed up. Just funny to realize that. I've always heard that real runner... Read more
down 2! woo hoo!
Yes, I have lost these 2 pounds before. It would probably be funny/sad if I could remember how many times.
The difference has been, for me, the morning prayers and committing to 2 things. One being that I will write it all down..........al... Read more
DH to oncologist today
Today was oncology day. Leukemia is never a happy word. However, if one has to have it, the chronic kind is preferable. Now he is down to visits every 6 months. The drill is the same. Draw the blood, look at it, spin it, evaluate it, send it off... Read more
Holy Day blog
Up early to help set up at church. I love the worship and holiness of hearing the Word and having community with believers. The biggest part that fills my soul is the community with the Lord.
No exercise yet. Waiting to see if dh wants to g... Read more
