Stand up for yourself

A couple of weeks ago I had gone to the doctor and fought with him about what was wrong with me. He wanted to blow me off that it was "just menopause" and I didn't accept his diagnosis. I'm so glad I did! On Saturday after over a year my... Read more

Last week things just kept piling up, when the hot water tank burst I called it quits and texted my husband. "I need to go sit on the rock." "You're going by yourself?!" "Yes." "Really?" "I put my big girl panties on." The "ro... Read more

When I restarted after gaining back 38 pounds I knew that it would be hard, I knew my body would not take the news that we were going to drop the fat cells again well. We've had this argument before, my fat cells get together, build a wall to... Read more
The gift of "no"

As I looked out the window into the misting rain today I said no one more time. I had said no to being with grandkids, no to a dinner hike, no to a lunch date, no to a day in the park. I now said no to the rain, I was giving the day to me. ... Read more

Last week my weight shot up 10 pounds in 3 days. I could tell by the way my body was acting this was not just water gain and headed off to the doctor. I ended up seeing one that I am not a fan of. I always say someone has to graduate at the b... Read more
Hiking, eating, celebrating and ugh...gardening

When I was little I thought when you grew up you liked gardening. Each year when I put my gardening gloves on I think back to this and two things come to mind. 1 - I'm obviously not old enough yet. 2 - My love for pretty gardens ou... Read more

This was the last weekend before farmers market season starts for me so my husband and I spent the weekend going on dates and saying no to any requests to look after grandchildren and such. I think my daughters sensed a disturbance in the for... Read more
Some days you gotta give up your run

This morning I got dressed for a run, there's a break in the rain and I wanted to take advantage of it then my doorbell rang. My daughter and granddaughters were there wanting to play and so we compromised and went for a walk around the lake.... Read more

Sometimes nighttime Tami is an idiot. She makes plans for morning Tami, she is bubbly and wants to conquer the world. Not because I'm a night person, quite the opposite. I think nighttime Tami is overtired and babbles. She planned an... Read more
Now where did I put that spark.
Wednesday, March 21, 2018      13 comments

For months I've been trying to find that "spark" to me back to where I was. I signed up for a dream race in Ireland, a destination half marathon. It's a great motivation, but not a spark. I had to admit that I had gone from a size 12 to a 16 ... Read more
This is the month of running PR

Today was so beautiful I couldn't stay focused on anything but to get out to the lake and go for a run. The entrance was still snowed in but it was fun to run though it and makes you really get those knees up. By the time I got to the l... Read more

Yesterday afternoon my husband and I headed up the trails beside our house. It's one of our favourites but over the winter the storms had ravaged the are and most of the trails were impassable. Many of them have been cleaned up but there are ... Read more
It has HOW many calories?
Monday, March 12, 2018      9 comments

A recent trip to Ikea included lunch and we tried the vegetable medallions. Pretty good and we decided to pick some up. I picked up the package. 260 calories for 2?! What the heck?! I just ate 260 calories in broccoli? They were good, but not... Read more

The weather was perfect for today's race. There was a light frost that quickly gave way to the sun and off we went. I ran the 7 mile race, my husband ran the 5K. His was an out and back, mine was once around the lake. I was a little worried abou... Read more
