Newest, Newest Short Story

Had another baby boy 4 weeks ago. I miss my running and working out. Hopefully the exercise and diet will help me get back to my pre-pregnancy weight....

I am determined to find time for my workouts at least 4 x a week....

Newest Short Story:

Had a baby boy 6 weeks ago and am now ready to get back to my running and better eating...not much time between FT work and baby but will try to figure it out...

Old stuff:

In the last 5 years or so I have lost 80 pounds and have managed to keep it all off. I am now at a plateau and need some help...

July 07-That was me a month or so ago...now I have been diagnosed with epilepsy. I am now battling with my medication to keep my energy up so I can function. I am determined to keep running, my goals will just have to change!

UPDATE 10/07- Finally found a medication that allows me to function again. My mind is clearer and I am not sleeping all of the time. Now I can really focus on my exercise and food.

UPDATE 1/08- Going back to work 3/3/08...can't wait!

Member Since: 6/8/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,493

My Goals:
I am determined to keep up with my running and will restart a strength program. It is also important that I eat for energy, since my medication takes so much of it from me.

October 07- I have begun a 12 week 10k training program. FINISHED 1/5/08

2008 Goals:
Half Marathon
January 08-started HM training program. FINISHED 4/6/08

My Program:
Running 4 days a week, often with my puppy.

Strength training 2 days a week. (Still working on this!!!)

Clean up my food, but I won't deny myself anything. It's all about portion control.

Personal Information:
The past...My job as a paramedic makes it tough to maintain a regular workout program and healthy diet.

Now...I am home for the next 6 months (which has turned in to 7 so far) , unable to work or drive. This sucks. I thought I would have all the time in the world to run and lift weights...well I never thought that I wouldn't have the energy :(

Future...Back to work. But when??? (March 3, 2008!!! Woo Hoo!!!)

Other Information:
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

- Bill Cosby, comedian

    Congrats on your new baby, Karyn!

    I am back on SP and I thought I would stop by to say "hi" and see how you are doing, Sparkie Friend! emoticon

    Karyn - It's been ages since we've seen you post on the Spark in the Dark. Just stopping by to check on you and your favorite running partner, Bruno. Hope things are OK.

    Hi Buddy!

    How was your race today? I've been thinking of you. I hope all went well babes.

    Thanks for your thoughts in regards to my race. I've just blogged about it and I am happy to have completed it. I took a watch but I forgot to track my time. hee hee. Running isn't just about time though, is it. I'll get my offical time tomorrow. I think it must be between 2 hours 10-20 minutes. Fingers crossed anyway!

    Take care my friend.

    Love and hugs Helen xxx

    Bruno is adorable! My Bailey is a great hiking partner, but not too good on a leash. We live way out in the woods but this summer I want to start taking her on long walks in town (I'd love to run but my joints won't let me) so I guess we'll need to start practicing good leash manners. Hugs, Joni

    Karyn - Good luck at the martian hm. You will do great. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. I am doing the same race. I am using it as a training run. I am only running 10 miles and walking the last 3 with a friend and a fellow sparker. I love the event. I have done something there since 04.
