  • 300 miles

    1/15/2018 7:59:37 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Wow, I was just looking at one of the trophies I got here on Spark... 300 life time miles! I never thought to count miles before. For as long as I am on here already I only counted time and intensity up until about three month ago when I started the 5 K challenge. No wonder I need new shoes alread... Read more

  • Down 5#

    1/12/2018 12:21:44 AM, by CANYON_GAL

    I forgot to mention that when I went to the clinic, I got weighed in at 183#. I quickly kicked my shoes off before stepping on their scales but kept clothes on...unlike how I weigh myself at home. But hey, I wore clothes on the scale and still lost weight. My supervisor at work offered my ... Read more

    It's like April fools day and the weather is thumping it's nose at us. It went from 48 degrees about 7.30 am to snow flurries and heavy grey sky by 10.30 and the wind was wicked cold. Now at mid afternoon it's back up to 45 degrees (feels like 38 in the wind) and the sky is as clear and blue as any... Read more

  • I hate being sick: Ear Infection and flu

    1/10/2018 12:25:46 PM, by CANYON_GAL

    My roommate went to the clinic first and was diagnosed with bronchitis. I have had a cough for a few days and finally went down to Flagstaff over the weekend to buy a bunch of items to get rid of it. I already had Ibuprofen and Halls cough drops so I didn't need to buy more of those. Well it t... Read more

    What a weird week.. It's 6.15 am and we have 51 degrees outside. Just a week ago we had 11degrees. How on earth can we get all this up and down in just one week.

    1/6/2018 9:24:01 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    January is about a week old now and so far so good. I gained a little bit at the beginning of the week, however I lost it already and a little more. The walking daily really helps. As I have arthritis it is essential to move for me. With the extend of damage in my hips, knees and ankles there is no... Read more

  • hair

    1/3/2018 9:49:03 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    My hubby has this beautiful long hair. It almost reaches the middle of his back. But, he is finely tired of the maintenance it takes for him to keep it growing. The reason he started rowing his hair is to give to wigs for kids or something along that line. He has made some inquiries with the local ... Read more

  • Starting Over

    1/1/2018 12:57:18 PM, by DONNAMM1225

    This has been a difficult year emotionally and health-wise. I am having back and hip problems that make it difficult to do anything - walk, sit, bend, lift, etc. My husband has had some health issues of his own. To top it off, we lost a 3-year-old grandson in an accidental drowning. Now that 2017 is... Read more

    This morning I wrapped a few of my "special" cookies in tissue paper and took them to the local bank when I cashed my check. It was silly and fun and the girls there enjoyed it. But no sooner had I come home and the phone rang... my daughter calling from the city (about 25 minutes away) and la... Read more

    12/18/2017 6:00:03 PM, by TXCURIOUS

    Over the past few days and if I think about it since the beginning of the month... I find myself walking more and more often 4 miles on my morning walk. Today I hit pretty much four miles on the step and did it in 80 minutes. That seems to be my stride... 3 mph. I think that is not bad. So for the... Read more
