A day of changes.

It's been a GREAT day! I changed up my running routine today! My younger daughter and I did a poker run to benefit the trails at the local public lake. She rode her horse as part of the trail ride and I ran it. It was between 7 and 8 miles aroun... Read more
My daughter revamped me!

My oldest daughter, the one getting her BS in Exercise Science and minoring in Coaching and Nutrition, revamped me. Well not exactly me, but my eating and exercise. She looked at my past week nutrition log and told me that I need to eat mor... Read more
An excuse TO exercise!
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      11 comments

It's so easy to make an excuse not to exercise. (Especially in the beginning of this journey before the fitness bug bites!) I'm too tired. It's too late. It's too early. It's too hot. It's to cold. I don't want to wash my hair. I don't want to s... Read more
Crazy is as crazy does!

I had a negative crazy right after my last post. I jumped off that same wagon I wrote about. It's really amazing how one can gain 5 lbs. overnight, but it takes a week or so to get it back off. Not really fair if you ask me! ... Read more
There is only one "real" finish line.
Saturday, July 11, 2015      18 comments

Recently, I've realized that there is really only one "real" finish line on this journey. There is never a time when one can simply "let it all go." If we do, we may end up back at the starting line and sometimes worse off than before. So w... Read more
Do you change the goal?
Thursday, July 09, 2015      7 comments

I have consistently been in my range of being between 140 -145 lbs. for most of the summer. I had one day of over, but it was down the next. It seems like I almost get to that 140 lbs. and then it goes back up a pound or two. Obviously, my... Read more
Playing the number game.

My husband had the day off. I'm a teacher and he works retail so we rarely have the same days off so it was nice. He wanted me to try a burger joint in one of our favorite older neighborhoods. The restaurant has been there "forever," I'd just n... Read more
Wow, I feel honored to be MOD.

I have to fess up. When I saw the congrats on my wall about being MOD, I had no idea what it was. I tried looking it up on one of those sites that explain texting abbreviations! ... Read more
A sermon and a reflection.
Sunday, July 05, 2015      12 comments

I was a greeter at church this morning. The pastor is new and had a very powerful sermon on morality. She is retired Army and her husband is still enlisted. Her sermon was about how the moral aspect of the Bible is sometimes "changed" to ... Read more
Happy Independence Day!
Saturday, July 04, 2015      8 comments

As we celebrate this 4th of July/Independence Day, may we be grateful for all of the freedoms that we have. Freedom of religion (which is the discussion I referred to yesterday), freedom of speech, freedom of expression, etc. Today may we enjoy... Read more
A good disagreement!
Friday, July 03, 2015      6 comments

Facebook, love it or hate it, but it does bring about some "good stuff" and in my case a "good disagreement." I won't get into any particulars here, as it is pretty controversial, but the conversation has been quite surprising. I really like how... Read more
I deleted sparkfriends :(
Thursday, July 02, 2015      11 comments

I noticed that quite a few sparkfriends have left. I decided to go through and delete the ones that are no longer here. I deleted 13! It could have been 14, but I know this lady pretty well and I hope she comes back. My deleting made me thi... Read more
Is there really such a thing as a day off?
Wednesday, July 01, 2015      10 comments

I've decided to take it easy today. I've been either running or doing boot camp daily. My day off still includes at least a 40 minute walk with the dog. He needs it and it's good for me. Is there really such a thing as a day off? I have a ... Read more
I love summer Mondays!
Monday, June 29, 2015      10 comments

Today is my first day of not working on a Monday! The summer has gotten much shorter over my teaching career and I'll be back in the classroom in around 5 weeks. I started my day out right and went for a little over 6 mile run. It took me ... Read more
Carb overload
Sunday, June 28, 2015      10 comments

I went out for breakfast with the hubby. It was really brunch time so I figured the calories would be for two meals. I had a pancake, plain, two basted eggs and hash browns. It was very yummy! I felt fine with my choices, but boy could I ... Read more
