The first day of "my summer!"
Saturday, June 27, 2015      6 comments

The first day of "my summer" began with not eating raw. I ate in order to go for a run. It was a little over 4 miles, but that was far enough considering the heat and humidity. I came home and got ready for a therapy dog visit at our coffe... Read more
Trying something new!

I have had the "Creeping Scale Syndrome" for the past weeks. I cannot get to the lower end of my weight range and I recently am out of a challenge because of 4 ounces. Well, I am fed up and I'm trying something new. My oldest is getting her... Read more
Supporting others

Yesterday was a day of supporting others. Really not a big deal! First, Halo and I walked in the Pride Parade. I walked in support of my sister, my uncle and an aunt. Then, I went to my daughter's horse show. I used to ride my horse in thi... Read more
I don't understand!
Thursday, June 18, 2015      6 comments

I really don't understand people and this world today! Too many deaths based on an "ism." I wrote about "isms" in a previous blog, but it seems like I need to revisit the subject. The "isms" include sexism, ageism, ableism, racism, classism... Read more
Boot camp
Tuesday, June 16, 2015      9 comments

I went to boot camp tonight. It was HOT! The leaders took that into consideration with little running. The series consisted of ... 1) squats with a weighted sand bag 2) carrying a log 3) doing lunges, crawls, etc for 20 feet 4) rowing w... Read more
A glorious run!

Last night I ran and it was glorious! I ran after 9:00 PM so the humidity was lower and there was a slight breeze. I ran a little over 4 miles and it was wonderful! I really wanted to go farther, but my mind kept all of my sparkfriends' comments... Read more
Trying to go more "natural."

This morning I took Halo on a 50 minute walk. We went a little over 2.5 miles. It was cloudy, but very humid. He was spent and seemed happy to be back home. I am trying something new. I wore a pair of flat summer shoes for my walk. The HIT ... Read more
HIT workout
Friday, June 12, 2015      9 comments

It rained, again, yesterday so boot camp was cancelled. Instead we meet at the Y and do a HIT workout. HIT is high intensity training. I was sweating buckets! Stairs, burpees, barbells, kettlebells, ladder, steps, abs, free weights, jumpin... Read more
I left a team, watched a team and ran.

I just left a sparkteam. I made sure that the other leader was also on one of my other teams. The one that invited me just disappeared. She deleted her sparkpage. It makes me sad. ... Read more
Clarification on the isms
Sunday, June 07, 2015      12 comments

After rereading yesterday's blog I realized I had combined two isms. Sizeism and body imageism. Sizeism is what many are judged on. People look at others that may be bigger and decide what that person is like. If you are big, then you must eat t... Read more

Today I spent the day at the local university at a Social Justice training. It was interesting and thought provoking. We discussed the "isms." You know them as sexism, ageism, ableism, racism, classism, ethnocentrism, and heterosexism. One of t... Read more
Happy National Running Day!
Thursday, June 04, 2015      9 comments

According to Facebook today is National Running Day. So I ran, of course. I ran a little over 5 miles and it was slow, 11 minute miles. It's ok because I ran! I'm going to try some new ideas on how to stop the scale progression upward. Eli... Read more
Moving on!
Tuesday, June 02, 2015      8 comments

First, I didn't make it to boot camp tonight. I finally was home the same time as the hubby so we had a nice "chat." No raised voices, no arguing, just each side bringing up their points and expressing their feelings. Just to clarify, I do ... Read more
Trying my patience!
Sunday, May 31, 2015      15 comments

I ran home from church today. It was a little over 5 miles, but took me an hour to do it. I just felt a little off, but I kept going! I reminded myself that my goal is to just run, which I did. It did try my patience a bit. The other thing... Read more
Two runs in one day!
Saturday, May 30, 2015      8 comments

Yesterday I ended up running with my oldest daughter and her friend. It was far, but around a 5k. I was pretty happy with myself. I ran twice, walked the dog, did my stretching and an ab workout. AND I passed up free ice cream! The scale was pre... Read more
