Feeling bad.
Friday, August 01, 2014      22 comments

Yesterday my Aussie pup got stepped on by a horse. It wasn't our horse, but her larger paddock mate. He was screaming and wouldn't put any weight on it. It had a "dent" and I thought it may be broken, but I decided to give him a night and see ... Read more
Perceptions
Thursday, July 31, 2014      9 comments

I went on a short run this morning. It was slow and easy. I'm a little sore after my cross training workout with my daughter. A good sore, but still sore. While I was running, I started thinking about how others perceive me and how I per... Read more
Personal student loans.
Wednesday, July 30, 2014      7 comments

My oldest is returning to college in a couple of weeks. Last year she made it through without any loans. She has a soccer scholarship that helps with costs. However, this year she did have to take out a Stafford Student Loan this year. T... Read more
My daughter kicked my butt.
Wednesday, July 30, 2014      13 comments

I ran 9.5 miles last night. It was a beautiful night for a "long" run. Long in my book, anyway. Tonight I went with my daughter to "the stairs." Here she put me through her college cross fit conditioning workout. Thirty minutes of high he... Read more
Which numbers are better?

My body is driving me crazy. I am running three days a week and normally, I'd lose about five pounds. I haven't lost a single one! I've looked over the list of symptoms for perimenopause and I have many of them. Here's my "struggle." ... Read more
Great "conversation."
Saturday, July 26, 2014      8 comments

I knew that we'd have some great conversation about the catcalls. I guess I find them annoying because I'm either in the zone or trying to get in the zone. When someone honks or yells at me, it distracts me and I "lose my momentum." Onc... Read more
Are catcalls good or bad?
Friday, July 25, 2014      13 comments

I was watching GMA this morning. They had a woman on there that talked about catcalls. She would approach them and tell them that their behavior made her uncomfortable and that it wasn't appreciated. (More or less.) She also hands out business ... Read more
Keep spreading the spark!

Today I went for a nice easy 7.65 mile run. It was humid, but not too hot. I did lots of sweating anyway, but it wasn't bad. After that the day became frustrating. Insurance companies, people that were rude, college student loans, family ... Read more
Aging younger.
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      16 comments

Last night a friend of mine told me that I was "aging younger." What she meant by that is, as I get older I actually look and act younger. Part of this is due to Spark and being committed to getting healthy and staying healthy. The other ... Read more
The day after.
Monday, July 21, 2014      11 comments

The day after my 1/2 marathon I feel pretty good. I did my "normal" Sunday routine which may have helped. I did some work at the barn for an hour or so and took the dog ... Read more
The Canal Run and my numbers!
Sunday, July 20, 2014      18 comments

I ran the Canal Run in Hancock, MI yesterday. It was a beautiful run with trees, the canal, a wide variety of houses, and a nice overcast sky. A lot of cool things to look at during the run. Most of the run was a nice gentle downhill g... Read more
Tomorrow is my race.
Friday, July 18, 2014      17 comments

Today was a pretty low key day. A walk with the dog, mindful eating without obsessing about calories, and a little last minute Yooper food. Tomorrow is my next HM. We drove the route and it is beautiful! It should be a nice run with lo... Read more
At the top?
Thursday, July 17, 2014      13 comments

I have reached level 20 on SparkPeople. I think this will help curb some of my obsession with sparkpoints. I can still accumulate them, but now that I've reached the top level, I "can relax" a bit. Do we ever truly reach the top? Some wou... Read more
Fun times!
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      10 comments

I am enjoying getting to eat some good food while on vacation. Pasties, a food that the copper miners ate, Mackinac Island Fudge ice cream, goulash, breakfast sandwiches, walking tacos, etc. All eaten within moderation! I'm getting in lot... Read more
Good numbers!
Tuesday, July 15, 2014      14 comments

The increase in calories has been offset by the fitness minutes! I'm right in a "happy place" with my weight. I'm still in the maintenance challenge and very happy with where I'm at on the scale! I'll keep doing what I'm doing and I should b... Read more
