Wow, its been about 3 months since I last wrote in this blog. Not much has been going on, weight wise... I've pretty much stayed the same.. BUT I've finally bitten the bullet and made an appointment with a nutritionist/dietician. My insu... Read more

And I've been... I don't know how to say it.. lost, I guess. I stopped going to Weight Watchers because my weight was doing the old see-saw -- up 1 lb, down 1/2, down 1, up 1... basically I've been the same weight for the past couple of mon... Read more
Being a good example

I think I blogged earlier in the year about encouraging my daughter by keeping track of the miles she's walked (or sometimes walk/run) with me since the beginning of the year. Well looking at her log, I realized she was about 1 walk to scho... Read more

The next big race I have is the Marine Corps Historic Half marathon. I did that one last year with a garmin that died at mile 3 (my own fault for not making sure it was charged)...and in my worst finish time ever for a half at 3:21:07. ... Read more
April 27, 2014 Columbia Irongirl Half Marathon
Tuesday, April 29, 2014      5 comments

This was my first year doing this race. And I wished, going into it that I'd felt better about my training. But really... well.. it hadn't been the best. Thanks to Mother Nature and her hormonal mood swings. Ah well... The race wa... Read more
2014 Racing
Thursday, February 20, 2014      3 comments

I don't do a lot of races. Mostly its because as funny as it sounds, I like the longer distances. I joke it takes me a mile or two to truly get in the grove and in a 5K that's almost finished! So I "like" 8Ks, 10K and half marathons. The... Read more

I'm following weight watchers and this past week and the week before last I tracked (honestly and completely vs my old half-a$$ed tracking)...and have kept up a streak on my active link of 100% or better. Weigh in days are Tuesdays (usually... Read more
A big NSV for me

It actually happened on 1-22-14... and I'm sorry I didn't write about it then, but I can honestly say I'm very very proud of myself for it. Here's what I wrote that evening in an email to my weight watchers leader: ***** So... Read more

I came up with this idea for my daughter who is 7 (she'll turn 8 in March). But then the longer I thought on it, the more I could see it would work for anyone: kids to us bigger kids! lol My daughter is active to begin with, ao I'm lucky... Read more
2014 goals
Thursday, January 02, 2014      3 comments

I don't make resolutions...because they always get broken. But I do like setting goals. Even if I don't hit them all, they give me something to aim for. So here are my goals so far for 2014: 1. To end 2014 weighing less than I began... Read more
Walking and talking
Saturday, December 07, 2013      1 comments

Okay, not just walking, but I have to admit I've done a lot more walking than running this past week. First off, I'm taking part in a facebook challenge group for December... where each participant set a specific, attainable goal for the mo... Read more
So where have I been? (probably rambling update)
Friday, November 29, 2013      3 comments

I've been... here.. around.. mostly lurking. The last entry I wrote prior to this one was on 8-8-13.. the day after I was attacked by the coward. To be honest I was more ticked than frightened when I wrote that account... the fear didn't ... Read more
THIS might be my new scariest

Couple minutes of my life... Last night at about 6pm I was running solo and was just past the turn around for my 3 mi run when I heard someone running behind me breathing heavy... I kept thinking "whoever that is, they gotta be faster than ... Read more
Update on Sadie

Meant to write this earlier... she's fine now. When hubby took her to the vet her third eyelid on the eye she was squinting was scratched. (I never knew birds had a third eyelid!!) We had to give her drops in her eye and an oral medication..... Read more

The scariest being quite a few years back when I thought I had lost track of Thomas in the park. But this.. last night... was an easy second. I have a pet parrot... Sadie, a caique. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ca
