I really appreciate all the support you all have given me! I am very excited for this year and I only hope that I can successfully complete all the runs I have signed up for. Time is really irrelevant, but it is fun when a run goes better than ... Read more
Blarney Stone 5K

I had a blast at the Blarney Stone 5K. It was held down by the river front so it was WINDY and the temp kept getting colder while we waited for the start. I ran with my friend. Her husband invested in a gym and now they are 1/2 owners. I regi... Read more
Day off, check.

Yesterday's day off wasn't as hard as I thought. We ended up going thrifting with the neighbor's eight year old granddaughter. Long story, but the short story is the mom isn't being a parent. We went to three stores and spent a lot of time wa... Read more
Does anyone else have a tough time taking a day off?

Today is my "rest day," but I have a really, REALLY hard time resting. I want to get out and do something even though I know my body needs the rest. Tomorrow is our horse feeding/stall cleaning day so I'll get a workout tomorrow. Monday ... Read more
A beautiful day makes for a kind of boring blog.

It's been a beautiful day! I ran for 4.55 miles this morning. It was a rough time, at first, but I got into a rhythm and felt great when I was finished. Laundry, dishes and a trip to the grocery store for a "normal day." I then went to ... Read more
Jillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels is a pretty down to earth person! Her big advice was "eat less and move more." Basically, what we all know. She spent some time about what is in our food and what we should be eating and what we should be staying away from. ... Read more
Going to hear Jillian Michaels.

We got the oldest tickets to hear Jillian Michaels speak. She had asked me right away if I'd go with her. So tonight is the night! I think we'll head downtown early and grab something to eat. We can walk around the old part of the city ... Read more

I used the word bodacious in one of the word games in one of my Sparkgroups. It means excellent, admirable, or attractive. I think that describes all of us on Spark. We may not feel attractive, at first. We may not feel like we are excel... Read more
I ran, with a bra on!
Monday, March 10, 2014      11 comments

It was a beautiful warm day today. I tried wearing a "regular" bra and decided that it didn't rub my new ink. So I put on the sports bra, tied those running shoes and out the door I went. I ran 7.65 miles in 76 minutes. I was very happ... Read more

I was logging food today and talking out loud to myself about how many calories Fritos were. She answered with the correct amount. I asked her how she knew that. Her reply was, "I know how many calories are in a lot of food because when I USED... Read more

My artist said that my back is basically finished. However, he wanted me to come back in three weeks to look it over and do any needed touch-ups. I'm really happy with it. My oldest said it looks like a painting and that if she had it on her ... Read more
Not used to seeing the arrow on the "plus" side.
Friday, March 07, 2014      11 comments

I logged my weight for the week and of course, it's not good. I'm not used to seeing the little tracker arrow on the "plus" side of my goal weight. I know why it is and I'll change what I can. (I got a surprise yesterday. My system is so off... Read more
Fat Tuesday makes for heavy weight Wednesday!
Wednesday, March 05, 2014      6 comments

I'll admit it, I did it! I participated in Fat Tuesday. I used this day as an excuse to eat poorly, eat too much and to not put my health first. I saw the results today. Yes, Fat Tuesday makes for a heavy weight Wednesday. I am looking t... Read more

We got new snow yesterday, only a light dusting, but enough to scoop. More is predicted...uh, I am so ready for warmer weather. If I hear anyone complaining about the heat this summer, I seriously will have to restrain myself from hitting them... Read more
No Excuses!
Friday, February 28, 2014      11 comments

Premenopause or not, exercising enough or not, eating right or not. No matter what I'm not making excuses and I will just have to watch everything a bit closer. I'll have to make sure that I'm logging every bite I put in my mouth. (We al... Read more
