141/160KM completed, 4 weeks left in 12 week challenge. Cabin fever hit and I NEEDED a trail run. My favourite was not usable, too much ice and dangerous so I headed out to the lake. I had to park further away and it added an extra kilo... Read more
Thyroid and celebrating
Wednesday, February 27, 2019      10 comments

Yesterday I met with the specialist about how to take care of my thyroid. Hands down the nicest doctor I've ever met! She was so funny and took the time to explain everything, show me the results and her concerns to what's going on. She's perple... Read more

My SIL sent me this video and it made me laugh. It's a hike that I've done, it definitely wasn't easy but to see a pro-athlete struggle with it and makes me stand tall and celebrate all that I've accomplished while losing weight. htt... Read more

I'm really happy on the thyroid medication with a couple of exceptions. The huge lump in my throat is going down, I no longer look like I swallowed a bullfrog. After a few days of dizziness that's passed and I'm feeling upbeat and normal again. ... Read more

Last night the twins spent the night. They love coming over but I've noticed when it comes to bedtime a new ritual begins. Paisley normally starts first about 10 minutes after bedtime, softly whimpering for mommy. I remember getting homesick ... Read more

I lost a friend this week. He was a healthy, active 48 year old and died of a heart attack. Leaving behind a wife of 21 years and two teenage boys. I'm struggling with this. Since it happened my husband kept asking if I was going to go check... Read more
Running with the passion of a three year old

This week I had the fun of going out in the pouring rain for puddle jumping and running. The nice thing about going out in the freezing cold, raining days is the lakes are completely empty. You're cold, wet...so cold, but you get the trails t... Read more

Looking for something different to do today I suggested to my daughter we host (and yes, I was smart enough to offer up her house) an impromptu potluck dinner tonight for the family. One condition, you have to bring something that is made from i... Read more

Today is granddaughter day. They come early and we get to spend a few hours together. We build forts, dance around in our sparkly shoes and make plans for our next trip to Disneyland. I love these days. The twins are 3.5 now and so funny! ... Read more

In my challenge to run 160KM by March 31st I'm very happy with my progress. I've hit the quarter mark and reached 41KM in the first 13 days. With the running I've noticed that my joints aren't as stiff, my mood is better, I'm handling s... Read more

I've joined a running challenge, 160KM between January 1 - March 31. The timing was perfect for me, I'm in my down season and have lots of time to get out and run. In the first five days I've put in 20KM. I've run in pouring rain (that just m... Read more
When menopause hits

We hear about the hot flashes, nigh sweats, mood swings and other such fun things but one thing I do not recall be warned about was that grandchildren were going to make you a emotional ruin. Yesterday would be a good example of this. I had b... Read more

It was bound to happen, an ad on Facebook actually caught my attention enough for me to click on the link. I checked it out and decided to make the purchase. And that is the story of how I joined a virtual race to run 100 miles between Januar... Read more

The worst time of day for me and wanting to snack is right in the middle of the afternoon. That is the time when I have to watch for mindless snacking, wanting to devour the pantry. You know, just a light snack. One great thing about trackers... Read more

Yesterday I had my three oldest grandkids coming over to spend the night. Then my youngest daughter called to ask if the twins could come over for a couple of hours. Umm...yes? I quickly did the math, I was going to be greatly outnumber... Read more
