A strange month - but feeling just a little bit more in control. Alas, the random acts of housekeeping died out after a week, and the house is now in desperate need of an overhaul. Calorie stats: Week ending 4/3 - average 1770 W... Read more

March Review A strange month. For the first 20 days everything was on track, and I was down almost 3 pounds (love how the scale gives you feedback when things are going well.) Starting March 20, though, things changed. Went to pi... Read more

My dubious and excited SIL appeared at the doorstep at 6am. She'd driven almost an hour to get there, and was ready to go. I gave her coffee and a banana, and went off to try for the second time to pry DD out of bed. By 6:30 we were ready to ... Read more

Lift like a man, look like a goddess. I've just completed the New Rules of Lifting for Women program. It took about 9 months. At my age, I found I needed at least 2 days off between workouts rather than the 1 that was recommended, so it t... Read more

Now, who could resist a 5K with a name like that? It was close to our summer place, and I figured it would be small and I might improve my time over my last 5K - maybe even place in my age group if it was small enough. However.... It was ... Read more

The Ides of June - thoughts on starting over
Tuesday, June 16, 2009      5 comments

Well, late on the monthly check-up and have to say haven't been doing that great. Food, especially, has been out of control, and everytime I get the running going again the ankle acts up. I was feeling very tired and futile about 'starting ove... Read more
