rainy, not running
Another rainy morning. Got all dressed and then looked out the back door. Still took the dogs and umbrella and coffee for a casual walk. Later went back down to the trail and picked almost a gallon on muscadines. I've made jam once and when I ga... Read more
day 2 and feeling better.........thanks for the kind words
Running was actually much easier this morning. I was just thrilled that I made it through yesterday. So far so good for today. One dd just got back from London and brought me an entire bag of Crunchies. They are the small ones..........80 calori... Read more
if I can just make it one day............discouraged, but hopeful
I am truly dragging here. Not to whine, but I'm back where I was 6 months again, again, again. This morning was another resolve, to just make it one day with logging in, counting what I put in my mouth, even if I go over.
The promise helps.... Read more
just finished a super busy weekend at work. Church was a sweet, calm, enriching blessing. Love that.
Knee is healing. All I can figure is that I sprained it edging the sidewalk (the old fashioned way with a shovel) last Monday. It was so s... Read more
almost too hot
got out this morning at 6:30 and it was already 81. The dogs and I did our run complete with iced coffee. Got back and was truly wiped. I'm thinking, as much as I love jogging with java, maybe I need to jog with rehydration drink and save the ca... Read more
making this day count
some times it seems like just putting it in words on a screen will help me focus. I've lost my focus again, again, again. I guess the good thing is that I still get up, get moving, run, work, etc. To track to track to track. My MPT has been stuf... Read more
made a new receipe today---bulgar and garden veggies
Got my morning run in. Down to 2 dogs today........that makes it a bit easier.
Was going to cook up some steel cut oats and then spotted the bulgar wheat. Hmmm, I said to myself. Put it on with some water and let it boil and then turned o... Read more
There are times like this that I'm some where beyond tired. I have a huge day ahead tomorrow and then much more for the next two. In this, our busiest season, I need to reflect on the gratitude for having a good job, working with amazing staff, ... Read more
running in the heat
I've traded my morning hot for iced coffee on the run. Still, I'm thinking I need more fluids. Don't really have a way to carry more although I could stick a bottle of water in my jogging shorts pocket. I also wonder if there is a way to know h... Read more
glad to be home...........love routine
I don't think of myself as a routine person. Still, I realize that even though I truly love vacationing with friends, I like either being home or camping with dh. This weekend we headed to the beach for a long weekend with dear long time friends... Read more
mpt day 7 ???? and prayer and thanksgiving
today is day 7. Yesterday was hard, especially since I was out of my routine,............not enough sleep, no exercise, plus I made yeast rolls and cinnamon roll at request of dd and her bf. Of course, I offered to do this.
Today I made up ... Read more
mpt day six
kind of amazes me now that I have determined to do this. Don't feel burdened or bothered. Good thing.
Being healthy is a gift we can give, at least in part, to ourselves. I'm giving me this gift one day at a time. Part of gifting is regular c... Read more

most powerful tool
Last post I was whining about counting and Kriszta replied that tracking was the most powerful tool and the best friend. As I ran yesterday morning that thought really solidified in my mind A tool doesn't work unless it is used. It is like a swo... Read more
oh, to count..............
realizing, like I didn't already know, that the only way I have ever lost and/ or maintained weight loss has been to count what is going into my body. I rebel against doing this with every fiber...
