Wake Up Wednesday
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      7 comments

This was the first day we had to get up early to get Boo to morning swim practice. I will say we were not late. Nope, not at all. Boo was threatened that he would only have dry toast if he did not get his tanned butt movin'. Since he act... Read more
I'll Call It a Draw

Well I did finish day 4 of c25k. Barely. I got a cramp and kept it with me the whole time. Spent 15 minutes just stretching it out of my calf and achilles after just to get it comfortable again. But hey...I did do it. BaDaBing! Whateve... Read more
Necessary Evils
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      3 comments

Like the shutter of a lens a storm has cast its hues over the landscape, tonalities of silver and gray deepening with each rumble of thunder. Oppression. That’s what I’m feeling at the moment. Trapped. The rain, while much needed, is kee... Read more
Inspiration on the fly

On Friday morning, I went with Boo to his Summer Quest courses. It was their last day and parents were invited to come and observe. Had a great time there. Watched the kids crush aluminum cans using heat and cold water. Listened to them spou... Read more
Ranting for points...come on down!
Thursday, June 23, 2011      7 comments

This one is for me. Mostly to document how I'm feelin on this journey on this particular day. Just trying to ferret out what it is that makes me hit that "Quit" button. Yesterday's walk was a b*$@tch. I didn't want to go. I had a house ... Read more
Day 1c25K Done
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      5 comments

Day 1 C25K is toast! I don't even recall whether I did the Spark to 5K or cool runnings. (It was still taped to the slide out thingie on my treadmill so *shrugs*) Here are the thoughts on the 8 cycles during the workout. Warmup: Bet... Read more
Starting C25K again...all systems go.
Tuesday, June 21, 2011      5 comments

Today is the day I'd marked on my calendar to start C25K. I think I'm ready. I've eased into walking and built up some miles. I'm praying over the last pair of trainers I've purchased. I'm not liking them as much as previous pair as far ... Read more
Weekend round up.
Monday, June 20, 2011      4 comments

This weekend was a good one. A stepping stone. I got my exercise in. I'm only planning on doing one day on the weekends until the dual swim meets are over. I did that, and did it despite the heat. I am feeling sore from the hills but that's... Read more
It's Been A Week.
Friday, June 17, 2011      1 comments

Friday! Bliss! It's been a week. I'm not going to say it was awful or horrible because it wasn't. It also was not stellar or fantabulous, but that's okay. Let's review: ... Read more
There's a frog in my blog! Yeah...kind of
Thursday, June 16, 2011      5 comments

So yesterday, I told y'all I wasn't feeling it. Circumstances have not improved much AT ALL. However...I am handling it in as healthy a manner as I can. Last night did not get my walk in. Had to go to Barnes and Noble because I realized ... Read more
No change today...bleh
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      4 comments

No changes on the scale but all things considered I wasn't truly expecting any. I woke this morning ... not feelin' it. I did not walk. It is dreadfully hot. But I did get my butt out of bed anyway and drink water and keep the dog compan... Read more
The Flying Dutchman
Tuesday, June 14, 2011      6 comments

Interesting title, yes? Well, it will make sense, sort of, by the end. Yesterday, I get a call from my child that he is home from Summer Quest (school focusing on math and science) and that he would like to go to the pool. First, I am at ... Read more
Worst pain ever?
Tuesday, June 07, 2011      9 comments

So I've been told that having a kidney stone is the worst pain you'll ever feel. I can honestly tell you that now I know for sure whether or not that's true. Last Tuesday, all was well, typical day...nothing of note. Woke up at 1 am Wedne... Read more
I really wanna chase that Cheerio.
Thursday, May 26, 2011      9 comments

I can tell my body is starting to crave fuel. Real food. Food that gets you through the workout and on to the next. I just had my mid-morning snack. Cheerios. Good stuff. I'm nomnomnom-in' along and Oooops! gets away and rolls un... Read more
Weekend Roundup
Monday, May 23, 2011      5 comments

It was a good and tiring weekend. The graduation we were supposed to travel to literally got rained out. They called us ahead of time and said they were limiting visitors so hubby and I were voted off the island early. His poor mother went ah... Read more
