  • Failure Cannot be an Option!!

    I was going to say "is not an option" but I need the best mantra for me and cannot is better than is not -- in my opinion.  My brother came over yesterday, we don't see each other often and I was thrilled to see he has kept his weight off and he is l...

    It can be amazing, intimidating, and even maddening to watch those seemingly fearless people who stride through life so supremely confident and bold. Taking risks. Laughing at danger. Giants among mere mortals, they forge ahead without doubt or worry...

  • Mowing and Geometry

    I mowed today.  I love to mow!  It is a very relaxing activity for me.  I enjoy the solitude and spending time outdoors. There are certain things one must do while mowing.  Well, really only one.  That is to make certain that all of your passes in th...

  • All Creatures Great And Small (and Disgusting)...

               Sons may be gifts from God, but boys are also gross little buggers.  Nothing fascinates them more than things pertaining to slime, blood and guts, boogers, bodily functions, and rude noises such as flatulence and armpit concertos.  Then th...

  • Life on Purpose - Thoughts on Day 1034

    Some days I don't really know about life. I have taken a few hits in the last couple of years. Four of five days ago I made it to my third anniversary of the day I suffered congestive heart failure. It's a big deal. You know it took a year to complet...

  • Reassessment

    I've decided to give my body a bit of a break and go to maintenance calories for a few weeks. A few reasons. I've lost just on 60kg and in the last few months my weight loss has really slowed down to a crawl - I feel like it's one step forward and tw...

  • Kite Weather

    Whew!  I about got blow away on my run this morning! I did get a little bit of a later start this morning due to being on the phone a little bit longer than usual.  I talk too much!  But, finally, I was off.  I ended up running a little bit over a 10...

  • Pride

    That's right, pride. I am so used to having none. Recently though, I find that I am very proud of myself. Wanna know why?1. As of yesterday, I passed my lowest weight in the last two years. Yep, I am now lighter than I've been in 2 years (at least).2...

  • Becoming A Creature Of Habit

    I need to do that. That's the plan anyway. My stomach is telling me..."YOU NEED STRUCTURE!"I wish I could say "lesson learned", but my track record on that front isn't the greatest.  My food diary today...well, actually, yesterday, as it is 2:15 am.....

  • Inquisitive Little Old Lady

    Today’s run was AWESOME!!! I ran the route I described to you yesterday.  It turned out to be 16 miles.  I was averaging 11:30 on the North side of the Frontage Road but my pace fell off on the bridge and the South side of the Frontage Road ramp.  Th...

  • Four Toenails Later…

    My goodness! Last Wednesday I ran the North side of the Frontage Road for the first time.  I had a great run!  Due to the fact that I was unfamiliar with the traffic pattern on that road, I ran on the white line the entire 12+ miles.  That is no big ...

    Putting this in my blog because, while i'm an attention whore, i'm not so bad that i'll take up valuable room in the forums (we know that the people wanting to know if they're hot or not need that space way more than i do!)...Also - warning - picture...

    As I took my little son Declan for a walk around our pasture and the surrounding woods this weekend, something stood out to me.  He always seems to be fascinated with the small stream we have running through the woods, winding its path down and aroun...

  • Если мучительно хочется конфетку, есть отличная замена - фитнес-батончик

    Как-то, раз, отовариваясь в соседнем магазине "Дикси", я обратил внимание на баточик ID Fitness. На вид обычная шоколадка, при чем здесь фитнес? Полюбопытствовал, купил, съел, прочел состав и заинтересовался. Оказалось, батончик этот содержит сбалан...

    Last night the cast of Laverne and Shirley invaded my dreams. WTH??? Remember them, from the same era as Happy Days? First, let me just say that I have not watched an episode of Laverne and Shirley since...well, forever ago, like in the 1970's! Why t...

    EXCUSE ME??? That was my first thought after reading the first email in my inbox this morning. It was 5:45 am and I was not thrilled to be awake, microwaving a heat pack for another round with my, as of late, rather chronic headaches. Okay, truth be ...
