Pleasant surprises

It was Curriculum Day. That's when we have meetings all day. I hate the sitting, but it is nice to see teachers from buildings all across the city and to catch up on "news." One teacher asked me if I was still losing weight. I replied th... Read more
A good run!
Thursday, August 08, 2013      6 comments

I got home from Meet the Teacher night and my younger daughter wanted to go for a run. So I did. I ran 3.42 miles in 30 minutes. Yes, I was pushing myself and I had the cramps to prove it. I haven't run at a fast pace for a while and even th... Read more
24 hours seems like a lot longer and I'm tired.

The last 24 hours seems like it's been "forever." We moved our oldest into her dorm yesterday and I didn't cry until we were on our drive home. ... Read more
The support is unbelievable!

The support that I receive on this site is unbelievable! No matter if it's running, maintenance, eating, family, pets, my tattoo gets messed up ... Read more
A nice run, but not long enough.

The girls were going to their high school to practice soccer and I went along to run. I really don't like running in circles so I decided on the way to the school that I would just run home. My girls thought the neighborhood was too "bad," but... Read more
Better, but......

I feel fine! I've ran almost 5 miles the last two runs. My times have been slower, but I've really been working on my pacing. There is NO way I can run as fast, if I want to do a 1/2 marathon. (Did I just say that?) ... Read more
I feel "odd."

Yesteday I ate breakfast around 7:00 AM and then attended in-services until 11:30 AM. I ran an errand, picked up my so for his orthopedist appointment and finally ate again at 2:00 PM. My stomach was so empty that I had a little pain at the to... Read more
My mom drives me crazy!

My mom doesn't understand me. (I sound like a teenager, don't I?) emoticon She sometimes says things not realiz... Read more
I am "normal."
Tuesday, July 30, 2013      11 comments

First, let me say I HATE the word "normal" and that's why it's always in quotes when I type it. I told one sparker that "normal" is as individual as fingerprints and I truly believe that. I am a special education teacher and "normal" takes on a... Read more
Dumb things x 2!
Sunday, July 28, 2013      14 comments

I've done two dumb things in the last 24 hours. The first was, I walked down our hallway to check and see if all the kids were home since it was 2:00 AM and the oldest had gone out earlier. She was home, but as I walked down the hall I ran sma... Read more
Home and home style!

We are home! It was such a nice trip and it was emoticon seeing all of my family and my husband's family. My aun... Read more
Ate at a buffet.
Friday, July 26, 2013      14 comments

We got to the hotel tonight and the only restaurant that was around was the Chinese buffet next door. So we went. My oldest almost had a meltdown thinking about it, but she did well. She ate smart and kept herself in check emotionally, too. ... Read more
I can't (and won't) eat that many calories.
Thursday, July 25, 2013      10 comments

I went ahead and changed my nutrition tracker. It's now the "new way" and is connected with my fitness. Today I ran, did some strength training, stretched, and did lots of walking. The new nutrition tracker raised my calories for the day 600 c... Read more
Over six miles
Wednesday, July 24, 2013      10 comments

There is a hill from one town to the next that is 4 miles. This morning I walked, ran and sprinted my way to the top and back down. It was a total of over 6.5 miles. My IT band felt better after I sprinted than when I walked/ran. Crazy! ... Read more
I hate vanity sizing!
Tuesday, July 23, 2013      12 comments

I know "the industry" really likes vanity sizing. People can fit their butts into 4's when realistically they are bigger than a 4. I really don't care about my size any longer, but it took a long time to get to this place. I know my oldest g... Read more
