Two down and more to go!
Thursday, January 02, 2014      11 comments

I have registered for two 1/2 marathons, so far. On 4-27, my oldest daughter and I will join my cousin and second cousins to run the Oklahoma Memorial Marathon. We are doing the half, but my cousin is walking the full marathon. (She no longer... Read more

I am one pound over my goal weight for the first time since I began my journey. (With the exception of my one day "experiment.") I'm ok with that. I will get back down a few pounds to where I'm most comfortable. I was able to register for... Read more
Out with the old and in with the new, but I'm keeping some of the old.

The saying is out with the old and in with the new. However, there are many "old" things that I'm keeping! I'm keeping Spark People and my Spark Friends! You all have added so much to my journey. It's comforting and refreshing knowing... Read more
I am tired!

Today I am tired! I feel like I ran a half marathon. You wouldn't think lying on a table getting a tattoo would be tiring, but it is. It took a little over an hour to place the tattoo on my back. Then, I was "under the gun" for close t... Read more
I ran!

Yesterday I bought new shoes! Yay! I took in my old pair and the man helping me said I definitely needed a new pair. He said that running shoes last around 500 miles and since I bought mine last spring, I figured I had to be close. I head... Read more
The aftermath of a Christmas experiment.
Thursday, December 26, 2013      10 comments

I didn't intend to create an "experiment," initially. However, when the sights and smells of the holiday food started drifting through the house, I decided to partake in an experiment. Now I know that you can't eat with abandonment everyday wi... Read more

Tis the season to wish EVERYONE, no matter what your religion or beliefs are, a very joyous and healthy end of the year. Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa, a Wonderful Winter Solstice, and I hope Hanukkah was a Happy one! Many blessings to A... Read more
Choices, choices, choices!
Monday, December 23, 2013      7 comments

This time of the year seems to present more choices! We have the normal choices of what to wear, what time to get up for work, what kind of coffee to order at Starbucks, or do I go through Scooters today. (This is me only when I have gift card... Read more
Naughty and nice, that's me!

I'm sure I've made the Spark Santa naughty list after yesterday! I was doing great with resisting all the holiday "goodies" until then. (I absolutely believe that sugars and such make one crave it more.) In all regards yesterday would be cons... Read more
I ran and I ran through it!!

I couldn't stand it anymore! Yesterday it got into the upper 40's to low 50's here. Most of the snow melted off and it just felt warm. Ok, well in comparison to what the temperature had been. I still don't have new running shoes, so I bo... Read more
I have to be me.

My oldest is going though a tough time. She is the one recovering from and eating disorder and since her soccer season has ended she's gained weight, according to her. She just had her thyroid checked, but it's in the acceptable range. She asks... Read more
Still sparking!

I have come to conclusion that I need all new shoes. This happened about two years ago, too. I have new walking shoes, Sketchers GoWalk. They are really comfy, but not made for midwest winters so I have to wear my old walking shoes or my boo... Read more
Brrr, bitterly cold!
Saturday, December 07, 2013      11 comments

It has been bitterly cold outside this week. I have walked the dogs nightly, but skipped one night and cut another nightly walk short. I bought some new shoes for everyday. They are Sketchers GoWalk. So far so good. They are really co... Read more
Frustrated!! I still can't run.
Tuesday, December 03, 2013      14 comments

I still can't run more than 1/2 a block. I do think a lot of it is that I need new shoes. I bought mine last spring and I'm sure I have "enough miles" on them. I walked the dogs in my New Balance "walking shoes" and was ok, not great, but tole... Read more
I was told I may have an eating disorder.
Sunday, December 01, 2013      22 comments

My oldest, who is recovering from an eating disorder, told me she thinks I may have one. Her reasoning is that I log all my food and exercise. I explained that this keeps me accountable and helps me make sure I'm getting enough protein and car... Read more
