Wednesday, January 14, 2015      1 comments

I'm checking out my Spark Page and notice all of the accomplishments and all of the pictures are old. As much as I enjoy seeing them, they are no longer accurate and I need to update my profile picture. My current picture is of me after comple... Read more

I've been back on the site for 3 weeks trying to get used to tracking things again and using all of the great support to get back in a routine. What I'm finding is that it's easy to make better food choices. In these 3 weeks I've nearly elimin... Read more
Gone Too Long

Wednesday, February 23, 2011      3 comments

So I went in Monday afternoon for the MRI and it went quite well. It was easily done and was out in less than 30 minutes. I got the results back today and it was negative for a meniscus tear which is good. Problem is.....what is causing the p... Read more

So the drama has come to an end. Although I'm late in posting this blog, it took until Wednesday this week before I was notified that my MRI would be on Monday afternoon. At least it is on the holiday and I don't have to take off work for it. ... Read more

So as I mentioned, I took the doctor's advice and asked to have them schedule an MRI just to see what is going on with my knee. I called them Wed to move forward with this. No response. I called Friday morning to see if I was supposed to call... Read more
Broken body??
Thursday, February 10, 2011      5 comments

It's been a terrible couple of weeks for me. Woke up one morning out of the blue and couldn't extend or bend my knee without severe pain and had lots of swelling. No warning or anything. I hadn't done anything that would have tweaked it to gi... Read more
Predicted 5 Miler
Saturday, January 22, 2011      5 comments

After much positive feedback from all you guys, I rolled out of bed this morning and headed to the 5 miler. The race is a cool concept where all participants predict their finishing time before the start. Watches/timers are not permitted durin... Read more
Lost Running Shape
Friday, January 21, 2011      6 comments

It's not a surprise to me but I am just not in good running shape anymore. I didn't think I could take off 4 months and be able to just get back out and run multiple miles. I've tried and tried to get runs in on the treadmill but it is just no... Read more

Spiraling Miserably
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      4 comments

I'm a pretty positive person. I was able to focus on myself and make decisions to improve my way of life. I accomplished the feat of running a 1/2 marathon this year. Then.....it stopped. I played it off as needing a break but in essence, I ... Read more
78 days......
Monday, November 22, 2010      4 comments

It was 78 days ago that I crossed that finish line in my first 1/2 marathon. Today, I ran again for the first time. I think tonight's run felt as tough as the 1/2 did. I've been very inactive the last 2 1/2 months and really needed to just ge... Read more
