I'd rather be a lunatic!
Thursday, April 10, 2014      10 comments

I just found out I'm officially a " 1/2 lunatic!" I didn't know that if you run two half marathons in a month you have earned the label of 1/2 lunatic. I wonder what a runner is called when they run two HM in two days? Onekidsmom? I will wear... Read more
My longest run of the year.
Wednesday, April 09, 2014      8 comments

I picked a beautiful day to run! I went to the barn to help my friend with her horse. I was riding it and lucky for me she brought an extra pair of jeans because I wore my running shorts. After we were done, I started out in Ponca Hills. ... Read more

We are all on Spark for a similar reason, to get healthier. However, each of our journeys to health is different. Some of us want to lose a lot of weight, some a little, some want to run a 5K, some a marathon, some of us want to get off meds, ... Read more
Busy, but making time for me.

It's crazy busy this time of the year. All of the kids are in spring sports. The oldest, in college, has spring soccer. The younger daughter, a junior, plays varsity soccer, for fun, as her high school team isn't very good. The oldest boy, fre... Read more
When did you start to like running?
Monday, March 31, 2014      12 comments

I remember I tried running a couple of years ago and I HATED it. I think it was because I wasn't in any type of shape and I had weight to lose. After I finished Insanity, I was looking for a way to keep my body in the shape that I had achieved... Read more

I sat next to our Kepi as he crossed over to the bridge. He went peacefully. He hadn't been eating on-and-off for some time. We tried raw hamburger, cooked chicken, cheese, peanut butter, bread, really good canned dog food, etc. He was g... Read more
Back in range!
Friday, March 28, 2014      10 comments

I am back in my goal range! It has changed several times on this journey, but it's the one that was set before I was running a lot. When I run I lose another 4-5 lbs or so, but I think I will just keep this range. When I moved it down, ... Read more
Ready for the weekend!

Our dog, Kepi, is hanging in there although we can tell he isn't feeling the best. We are spoiling him with table scraps and "really good" dog food. He's not eating much and we haven't seen him drink. The oldest is home from college and was fe... Read more
News isn't what we wanted.
Wednesday, March 26, 2014      11 comments

We got the news that we really didn't want. Our dog does have Addison's. We've been discussing what we'd do if it came to that diagnosis. I should first briefly describe what we'd have to do to take care of him. First, we'd have to run a... Read more
A turn for the better!

I did great on my eating today! I met my goals of water, fruits and veggies! I walked 45 minutes, did three sets of 25 push-ups, stretched, and I ran 4.55 miles! It felt good to be back on track. It was a turn for the better! Another po... Read more

I'm frustrated with our doggy situation and I'm frustrated with myself. We are back to square one with Kepi. The vets did a preliminary test to check for Addison's Disease. We should get the results back in a couple of days. They also ran a ... Read more
Five guys and a dog
Saturday, March 22, 2014      12 comments

The hubby, oldest son and I ate at Five Guys. I haven't eaten a burger out for since I don't know when. I got a little on and shared fries, but of course, when I logged the food....it shouldn't surprise me anymore and I guess it really doesn't... Read more
Emergency vet and Addison's Disease?
Friday, March 21, 2014      11 comments

Our younger dog, age 2, has always been a picky eater. He went to the vet on March 3rd for an ear infection. He healed and seemed to be getting back to his old self. Then, he stopped eating entirely. He wouldn't even eat people food. I ... Read more
My oldest "baby" is 19.
Wednesday, March 19, 2014      10 comments

Today is a milestone for my daughter. She turned 19 today. She no longer needs a parent's notification for any part of her life. (She will still tell us, but she no longer needs permission.) It's strange realizing that now she is a full f... Read more
