  • some good gains and some great losses

    8/26/2014 2:00:05 PM, by SOFT_VAL67

    So far today has been pretty good. Compared to yesterday. I called to ask, after 3 weeks if there were any reports back about my foot. I was spoken to in a very rude manner by the woman at the Neurologists office. This was my own fault, I had my reservations about going there but I gave in and ... Read more

  • My ridiculously long story of how I went from Hating Running to Tolerating running

    8/26/2014 1:01:17 PM, by LAURIE9404

    I started running in March of 2013. I was in decent shape but had put on about 25lbs from my lowest weight and was working out as hard as I once had. Life was a mess and the exercise and healthy eating was put to the side a bit. I have never liked running. I would avoid it in high school at all ... Read more

    8/26/2014 12:05:58 PM, by CONFUSEDBIRD

    Ever find yourself saying that? Oh I didn't exercise today, I will go tomorrow! I felt like I did that all last week. Or finding yourself depending on workout buddies and they fall thru so you stay home as well. Yesterday I got off work from a short day and I had a lot of energy. Went home (hot as ... Read more

    It has been hard getting back into my training routine following vacation and a concussion. I was pumping myself up to get rolling with it this week but on Sunday my throat started to hurt. Oh BOY. I immediately started to take some antibiotics that we had in the house. The medicine has helped preve... Read more

    I’ve posted to and alluded to this blog a couple of times on SP under different screen names (because this beastie part of myself has been so dominant in my life), but it’s worth posting today because this is THE blog to end all blogs for me – the litany of come-ons, rationalizations and excuses I’m...

    hi everyone--going to be a scorcher here--hot and humid. the hard part is the fact that we haven't had this kind of weather much this year, so we aren't used to it. of course the van decided it was time for the air conditioning to crap out--and we are planning to take the dogs and go on vacation ne...

    I thank God for another day to get it right. I had a great training weekend, honing my craft and learning about skin care and facial contouring. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and develop my skills and become "boss" at marketing my Mary Kay product. I have a lot to learn and ways to g... Read more

  • Not sure about the new format (blogging was made harder to me) and tomorrow!!!

    8/26/2014 12:10:49 AM, by GEOFROG

    I am not too sure about the new format on SP. I wish they would have left the blog thing on the points board where it was easier to find instead of moving it to the start page. Maybe if they put it in one of the big boxes like the other stuff would have been better. I have tomorrow off from work. ... Read more

    I learned some tips that you can't find online. Some of them I learned by accident or learned from other people. 1. When on your period, drink cranberry juice. Treat your period like a bladder infection. It helps shorten your period. Mine lasts about 3 or 4 days when I drink cranberry juice. So... Read more
