Three dogs and extra walks.
Thursday, December 29, 2016      13 comments

I am pet sitting for a mini Schnauzer for the next five days. He's been here before, but it's a first since we got our little Cairn Terrier mix. The best thing is I get extra walks in keeping them a little on the tired side. A tired dog is a goo... Read more
My Supportive Family!

My kids all went in together and got me a Fitbit Charge 2. So far I am loving it. I'm still playing with all the features, but I love the step counter and how it keeps track of workouts, even when I forget to set it. I'm just going to let it "go... Read more
Double Workout Day
Monday, December 26, 2016      12 comments

I ran 4.35 miles this morning and then, hit the gym with the girls. We did the stair stepper to warm-up and then hit the weight room. My Fitbit said over 18,000 steps today. Tomorrow will be a nice long walk with both dogs. I need to be carefu... Read more
Fitbit Charge 2

I got a Fitbit Charge 2 for Christmas. My oldest helped to set it up and now I'm wearing it. I wasn't going to wear it today, since I knew my day would be "off," but my kids told me that's not what it's about. My oldest showed a little concern a... Read more

This morning I did a little over 7.25 miles on a trail run. It was a beautiful, frosty morning and I took my dog, Halo, with me. Normally he's good for 3 miles sometimes 4, but he did just fine with the longer distance. I think he likes trail ru... Read more
Sore and double postings.
Friday, December 23, 2016      8 comments

I bragged the day after the gym that I wasn't that sore. The delayed onset soreness hit me hard today! I was supposed to do a "Donut Run" this morning, but icy road conditions caused its cancellation. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical instead. ... Read more
My first trip to the gym.

My girls took me to the gym to workout. Ten minutes on the stair stepper, 65% to 80%, as a warm up. Then 45 minutes of circuit weight training using free weights and steps. I'll admit I am feeling it already, especially in my legs. I am al... Read more

Changing plans.

Well my girls didn't go to the gym on Saturday, thus I didn't go. It was a day of cleaning and staying inside. However, I did use my elliptical on Sunday. Wow! I still get surprised how different exercise works different muscles and makes a body... Read more
Cancelled!
Saturday, December 17, 2016      14 comments

The weather report for today was ice, wind, blowing snow, wind chills, along with dropping temperatures. As a result, my coffee run was cancelled. I jokingly said on Facebook that if runners are crazy enough to run in the winter, you know runner... Read more
Brrrrrrr!

It is COLD! Not just cold, but bitter cold! I have a "coffee run" this Saturday when the high of the day will be 14. I'm not sure how far the distance is for this one, but it's at 9:00 AM so it will be super cold! Lots of layering should help, b... Read more
Feeling better!

There are a few things I need to clear the air about. First, I really have no problem with my age. I just have always been told I don't look as old as I am, so the comment kind of surprised me. I wasn't upset about it, it just made me think. For... Read more
Steps forward and steps backward. Is this dancing?
Friday, December 09, 2016      9 comments

I've done very well with my nutrition and exercise this week. I'm trying to make my last meal of the night lighter and earlier so that I have at least 10 hours without eating, but preferably 12 hours. I've walked around an hour each day, ... Read more
UGH!

I have been running every weekend and at least once during the week. I'm staying in my calorie range and eating clean. If we do go out, I try to get a salad with grilled chicken and no dressing. I figure that way my body doesn't rebel against th... Read more
Doing well.

I've been reading a lot of how to eat and when to eat. I've decided that I'm throwing it all to the wind and going back to what I used to do. I will log what I eat and stop eating at 8:00 P.M. I will spend less time on the computer and more ti... Read more
