4 miles but only 2/3rds running. Time to garden. Time to pray
Do NOT like daylight savings time. However, since I'm off on Monday I am able to adjust a little slower. Headed out for my morning run despite the tail bone bruise. By the time I was a little over a mile from home I knew I needed to stop running... Read more

My knitting plans failed but instead I had long chats with a dear friend and then with my mama. So the evening was still a joy.

today's alternative to jogging
This morning I slept late (7:30) and then curled up in my favorite den chair to do my quiet time and go through a couple of cups of coffee. Short walk with the poochies and then I tackled housework for my exercise. Have I told you how much I DON... Read more
Monday after free Sunday
Yesterday was my second Sunday during Lent...........days I allow myself the sugar, chocolate, etc., and allow myself not to track my foods.
Last Sunday was one of being rather overboard. Yesterday was not. I think the difference was just h... Read more
raining, not running, growing up
Waking to the sound of rain is lovely, but this means another day without a run. Funny thing, although I enjoy this excuse, I really miss those miles. Spring is happening here, evidenced by minute pale greens and flowering trees and ducks and ge... Read more
how to start the day with a bad attitude
Today is my day off.
You should know what that means.
Everyone and their dog has something they want you to do. However, none told you until this morning when you already had your day planned.
That meant I couldn't go running bef... Read more
building a 100 brick man-want to join me?????
talked to a dear friend today about a challenge. The idea is to graph a picture of two men, both made out of 100 bricks. One is the Old self, One is the New self. Each day we color in a brick depending on whether or not we stayed true to healthy... Read more

Repeatedly she encouraged us to do what ... Read more
Feeling sugar free. Amazing
One choice I made for Lent was giving up sweets so nothing with sugar as a main ingredient. Yesterday was day 5 & it is hard to describe how well I feel. Maybe more alert, less tired. Would be interesting to know the chemistry behind this.

what I learned on the greenway
Daily the plan is to get out and go running or biking.
Sometimes I feel so put upon about the need for exercise.
Then I look at all the folks doing the same thing.
Most of them are thin or slim or just average weight.

Got the new First magazine yesterday. I'm such a sucker for those. Any way who was featured but our own Meg Galvin and several folks that had lost tremendous weight here. The focus is really on eating more prebiotic carbs and on Galvin but the ... Read more

So, after doing my big workout Friday I went into work Saturday morning. My throat was sore and before long I knew I was getting sick. At first I wanted to blame it on taking out that bush but knew it was more. Came on home (I have the most wo... Read more
