I'm a two handed pre-runner
Saturday, July 31, 2010      4 comments

A half-marathon in late November caught my eye. And as I'm seeing slow gains in fitness (the scale is still whack), I resumed running training, with 30 seconds jog, 30 seconds walk progressing to 45 seconds jog and 20 seconds recovery -- looking... Read more
How I learned to be patient

My 5th calendar of tracking weight starts next month. For years, in August, I weighed the same thing. This August is different --- but not much different than June, or April of this year. While there is progress, I'm just not normal. I tracked... Read more

I came back from France and I work a pair of pants to work -- and put a second pin in the waist band -- and I can't wear them anymore!! I remember a time when I couldn't wear t... Read more

off I go

I chose to do 36 minutes of one of my toughest workouts. I knew it would be deep muscle as well as cardio burn. I need to have the muscles worked in order to sit well on the plane. I'm trying to be mindful of sodium on the plane. If I can't sto... Read more
half way

My husband asked me how my doctor's appointment went. I use that scale as my official weigh in. According to the Doc's scale, I've reduced 2 pounds in 2 months. My husband said that I look better than what the scale is showing (I feel the joy ri... Read more
Now this is getting fun!

I've changed my diet and found a lower calorie way to eat midday and stay satisfied. This is my 4th day, and something is happening. There is a difference in how I feel -- I don't know how to describe that but it's nothing like that overstuffed ... Read more
community journal
Saturday, June 05, 2010      2 comments

I started a community journal --hoping for fantastic results. The results aren't stellar, but I'm starting to reduce again, and that feels good. I used the community journal to be a little more verbose than on the blogs. I was trying to bl... Read more
ogres have layers
Thursday, May 27, 2010      3 comments

I would post a Shrek picture here, but I'm not that savvy and frankly, I'm having time management issues anyway ---- which leads to one of the layers: I have waisted time lately which has uncovered a layer. Yesterday I briefly saw a guy who... Read more
I feel thick
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      3 comments

ugh. I found it hard to get out and walk while in Wisconsin. My aunt's funeral went well and it was good to be there. I was a pallbearer for the first time. It was an honor albeit privately emotional. I had a couple of champion moments wit... Read more
taking a break -- out of respect
Monday, April 26, 2010      4 comments

I know some rules for mourning, but I haven't had to apply them to SP. I'm not going to take a break from exercise or from working on my dietary choices. My Aunt died and I don't know if I'm traveling for the funeral yet -- but a week or so away... Read more

New rules
Sunday, April 11, 2010      2 comments

I go to the doc, and really, I haven't budged in weight enough over the past two months. It's just to check on the thyroid meds. I have to work harder, and left to my own devices, I don't always take the best care. New rule: Only veggies an... Read more
Juxtapositions
Monday, April 05, 2010      2 comments

My weight flexes up -- and I'm still bouncing around between the 168 and 170ish, but I wore a suit yesterday -- size 16 on the tag and the skirt was slack -- it sat a couple of inches below my waist. I'm close to the halfway mark -- I'd be ... Read more
