Its a relief?
Thursday, December 08, 2016      6 comments

Went to the OB/GYN yesterday and had my sonogram and got the results of my blood test. No abnormalities in the sonogram, blood count is normal, thyroid is normal, so nothing abnormal to indicate why my cycles have gotten so close together. So... Read more
Making the most of my time

It was my turn to drive my sons carpool for his basketball practice last night, which meant sitting for an hour while the team practiced and then driving back. Well I planned ahead and success. Last week I asked my son to notice if the track l... Read more
All those cookies
Monday, December 05, 2016      4 comments

My boys have a lot of teachers and we always want to give them a little gift at the holidays so several years ago I started giving them small packages of homemade cookies. Then my girlfriend asked to help bake with me and our cookie day was bor... Read more
Back at it

After a few days of digesting the unknown and deciding I need to move forward, I got back to cardio and weights today and have been on point for the last three days with my eating. I think it speaks volume to how much I have learned other mecha... Read more

Today was the final weigh in for the fall 5% challenge. I lost a total of 6 pounds over the eight weeks for a 3.3% loss. While it is not 5% I am not going to hang my head, I am going to celebrate six more pounds that are gone. I have lost a t... Read more
Turkey trots
Friday, November 18, 2016      4 comments

Several years ago I pushed to start a new tradition in my family. Instead of a huge breakfast on Thanksgiving, which was the tradition in my moms family, we would have a regular breakfast and then do a turkey trot as a family. Now I can't say ... Read more
The holidays
Thursday, November 17, 2016      6 comments

Read an interesting article in the paper today that had 11 tips to help avoid weight gain this holiday season. Some of them I already employ, like eating before you go to an event so you are not as hungry, drink lots of water and squeeze in exe... Read more
Finishing up strong
Wednesday, November 16, 2016      4 comments

Back in September, I saw a blurb on the Sparkpeople front page about challenges, including the 5% challenge. After reading about the challenge I thought this is right up my alley and signed up. Being a runner, I thought the Runners, Walkers an... Read more
Rest day but not a habit
Tuesday, November 15, 2016      4 comments

Well yesterday I did the elliptical and lifted and I felt good. So making a conscious decision to take a rest but then getting right back to it seems to have worked. Yeah for me for listening to my body this time. Now lets see how my run feel... Read more
Knowing my limits
Monday, November 14, 2016      3 comments

I have been on this merry go round before. Hopefully this time I am finally learning a little more about my behavior. I have been working at my weight loss for 16 weeks. And the last two weeks I hit my first plateau. So inevitably I start... Read more
day 7
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      2 comments

Well tried to run last night and I am not sure if I am ready to say it was a success, but I did make it five minutes without pain. Leg is a little sore this morning, but it feels more like muscle than the pain. Eating was good, had a wonderfu... Read more
Day 6- doing OK
Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

Had a good weekend eating wise, but could not resist the ice cream. Need to work on that. Had a great time enjoying a baseball game with my boys and only needed a hot dog and some fries to satisfy me. Had a good workout on Saturday on the e... Read more
Day 1 again
Thursday, September 06, 2012      1 comments

Well the last blog entry I made in April certainly turned out to be more than a bump in the road, rather a mountain I had to tackle and still have not conquered yet. Two stress fractures, a non healing union, physical therapy and a bone stimula... Read more

A bump in the road
Monday, April 09, 2012      0 comments

I am calling it a bump cause I really don't want it to derail me. I have an appointment with the orthopedist on Wednesday and I am pretty sure he is going to tell me I have a stress fracture in my left leg. I am trying so hard to not let this g... Read more
