Well, accentuating the positive-- had a great workout at the gym. Did some cardio, then a very good weight session.....then Keith and I took Bandit for a walk....we're stalking all the neighborhoods where we'd love to move. This one tonight is #1 on the list-- wow. Beautiful walk.

Eliminating the negative.... I think 80% of my calories this day was derived from some sort of sugary crap. Not my best eating.

Happy that I got a good workout in-- it's something, anyway. We've gone Saturday, Monday and today-- I'm happy to be back at it.

Scale showed me a bit of kindness the other day-- I don't watch it much. As Jeanne said, I get obsessed with the numbers....that's what got me in this mess. I get on once in a while.... Never changes much...but it had inched up....and it has inched back. I'll take it for now.

Lori-- just heart -- that's all. I have no words of wisdom. Just wanted to heart you-- ha.

Later.

Richie,

You're so lucky to be close enough to your family that you can help out with child care. One of my great hopes (and theirs too) is that my son will find a job close to us and they'll be able to move back to our area (it will be closer for her parents as well) before or soon after they get their family started. You sound like a great MIL to a daughter-in-law. Any advice?

I must have been insane when I signed up for this tri! Oh the things we do when we think they will motivate us. Too bad it didn't!

Tom leaves the 22nd. I sure hope I pull my **** together after that. I did eat good for the past 2 days. Right now, that's saying something. I haven't seen under 160 for 2 months to the best of my calculating. I got close on my birthday, 1/2 pound away. I'm determined to get back in my 150's before this time next week. Gotta start somewhere. Right?


Lori,

Recently I told a friend about my Tri goal - to just not embarrass myself and he chuckled and said something about a "low bar." Well, he's a nice guy but no, it wasn't a low bar for me - it was the only bar I knew I could handle.

You don't have anything to prove to anybody, including yourself. Treat this Tri like a fun run - you're just doing it to see how it goes. With all that you have on your plate, I say your goal should be to just show up! Forget about time, forget about where you place, heck, forget about even finishing! Just do what you enjoy and to hell (am I allowed to use that word?) with the rest of it. I'm already impressed that you've decided to do it. I would have written off the entrance fee as a bad investment and let it go. So, YEAH for LORI!

As usual, I post in threes.

It's Thursday - the Do-Over worked, sort of. I'm at 144 - up a half pound from last week so everything's ok. Looking back, I've been bouncing around in 143 - 144.5 for the past seven weeks. Anybody see a pattern there?laugh Last year I bounced around 146 - 149 for 8 months. So, this may be another 8 months of bouncing - until next summer that is.

But the sun is shining, the sky is blue, I can go for a bike ride AND a swim today, the blues have fled for the time being. We're supposed to have mixed sun and clouds for the next week. YEAH!

Wishing you all a great second half of the week,

Jeanne

P.S. Marla - good job on the workout!

Happy Thursday! It is Thursday, right? Looking forward to getting this week done. Next week I have a short week at work. Woo Hoo!

Yesterday was a "if it's not tied down, I'll eat it" kind of day. I was also freezing all day. Today I'm battling a bit of a runny nose, so I'm guessing that may have something to do with yesterday. The girls are also getting pretty tender. Which really just pi$$es me off because it seems like just two weeks ago I was dealing with the same issue. Gets pretty old having one week of 4 that I feel good, not bloated, not tender, etc.

I have not been doing well on my October goals. Not well at all. Embarassing really. I want to be 5 lbs down but I'm not acting like I want to be 5 lbs down. So how badly do I really want it? Million dollar question.

I did sign up for the Harvest Hop/Spooky Spring 5K next Saturday the 20th. Kind of laughable given the distances Shuntae, Kaylynne, Jeanne, Donna and Lori have run and will be running. It's an evening race (not sure if I mentioned it or not) and the route will be lighted with luminaries and we're supposed to watch for spooky things while we're running, wogging, walking, etc. I hope the weather cooperates. It'll be fun for the entire family if it does. Free weiner roast, games for the kids, etc.

Guess that means I'd better get my rear in gear and get some running, wogging, walking down at noon today.

Have a great day friends! heart

huh Laughable?? noway What the??....young lady, Imma whup you Image not displayedif I ever hear you denigrate yourself like that again.....angry

As I have (finally) learned, I shall forever extol.....we can't all run the half marathons, the whole marathons, the triathlons. Not because we're not physically able-- I know I can. I know you can. But our lives aren't conducive. Your kids are still small, and you're working a full-time job....mine are small, and I'm home schooling. These are not, at least in my opinion, lifestyles that work terribly well with the commitment and training necessary for greater distance running.

Running a 5k is great fun, is great exercise and always goes to benefit some cause-- win/win/win.

Miss Jeanne....please remind this young lady....it's not what you do....it's that you find something you can do that fits into your life. (paraphrasing....but I got the general gist....yes??)

So, Miss Kati-- you stand tall and proud for signing up for that 5k.....y'hear???angry angry

Yes ma'am.

I'm just ashamed that I constantly get to a point and then quit. (I was going to say stop, but really, I quit.) I did the C25K this spring. Did my 5K at the end and then quit. I remember "planning" to continue with the 10K training. Well, I quit on that too.

Jeanne, isn't this what you mean when you talk about not setting goals? (I'm a horrible paraphraser and I have a horrible memory which is part of the reason why I'm a terrible paraphraser...but anyhow...).

Maybe I should just set my goals as to 1) Wake up each morning.

I'm going to get behind Marla in the line to smack you if you talk like that again. You know why I do this stuff? Because my life allows it at this point. I don't have small children to take care of after work, nor am I home schooling. When/if we do start a family, things will change, and my life will change with it.

Do what you can with what you have. heart

Absolutely, positively! You have to find the exercise routine that fits into your life. If you try to bend your life to fit your exercise, you won't keep doing the exercise - life responsibilities always win hands down.

Kati - laughing only, ONLY, with joy!! I love the idea of an evening run. If it's not fun, it's not done.

Here's the updated list:

This weekend: Lori and a Tri, Kati and a 5k

Next weekend: Donna and a 10 miler.

heart heart to all,
Jeanne

I don't want to be a downer but I've had times in my life when that WAS my goal. And then I progressed to: get out of bed.

I bet your kids are being fed, I bet they're clean and wearing clean clothes. Mine were always too but it was a real struggle some days. I know.

And, yeah, I'm not a big believer in goals beyond today's. And keep them so low that they're achievable. Even if it's just: walk to the mailbox or around the block or whatever. Even if you ran a 5k yesterday or last spring or three years ago. It doesn't matter. ONLY today matters. Because tomorrow, you're going to need to know that you met a goal today. Just keep on moving forward - one day at a time.

Yay, Kati!!!!!!!!!!!

Proud of you, young lady!

Pleasant day today-- Aaron put his rubber bands back on last night, as he promised....woke up this morning and the tooth mid-line was left of center again.... It started out right of center, which is why doctor wanted the wires. Mid-line is so named, obviously, because it is supposed to be IN THE MIDDLE.

After two days of wires, I could see the mid-line was left of center, and the pain was incredible....so we went back to her. As I told you, she said, "Okay, let's do rubber bands...." Which is still pulling the bite left of center.

I'm with Aaron-- bag the bands. We'll go back Monday, and see her again..... Stay away from hard food....and we'll see how it goes.

Tonight is movie night....Keith is going to a viewing of an old friend, over an hour away, after work.... High school buddy's little brother, or something like that..... So I'm putting a movie on with the kids. I don't expect him home until late.

West and wewaxation.... hehehehe

Hello all!

First off: Kati!! Who cares what milage anyone else is doing? Are you moving? Ok! Great! I love that you ended up a hot, sweaty mess today.

Lori: The ladies have said it well. You have been such a leader and inspiration to each of us. You are going through some major life changes: full-time work, preparing for Tom to deploy again. Cut yourself some slack. Just take the pressure off and go have some fun...yeah, while doing a tri wink

Marla: My heart still goes out to Aaron. This recovery process is not an easy one, for sure.

Jill: How is Andrea doing?

Jeannine: How are you? Migraine staying at bay?

Richie: So good to hear from you smile



Well, I'm having a hard time getting back into the workout routine. Monday was a rest day....HELLO! Tuesday turned into one also. Wednesday Shawn and I took Quinn on a nice brisk walk. Tonight I did P90X Shoulders and Arms. i need to come up with a plan. I do best with a specific program or goal.

Today was a crazy day. A low front is coming in; crazy storms and possible tornadoes are predicted for this weekend. I truly believe you can tell that by student behavior. Based on the past couple of days, I'm predicting an F5! grumble sad huh I was grumpy by the time I got off work. I was downright pissed off when I found out the laptop cord got caught in Quinn's leg and he pulled the laptop on the ground. It is trashed; completely unfixable. explode explode explode I must confess some very unladylike language crossed my mind.

The best thing I did was go work out. I left my stress on the basement floor and came upstairs back to my regular self.

Running a marathon did interesting things with the scale. I had followed my clean eating program really well in the weeks leading up to the marathon. The scale was slowing moving down. Friday and Saturday were serious carb loading. Whole grain and white carbs. More calories than I normally consume. I didn't weigh myself Saturday morning or Sunday morning. Saturday I just didn't think of it. Sunday I knew the number on the scale would upset me and mess with my mind. Not what I needed before running 26.2. Just for kicks I got on my brother's scale after we got home. Not sure how accurate his scale is. (Mine is usually close to my doctor's.) Anyway, I was 5 pounds down from what I was Friday morning at home. Sunday we ate at a fast food restaurant. I had a cheeseburger and 1/3 serving of fries and a malt. I was expecting the sodium to pop the scale back up. Monday I was still 3 pounds down from Friday. Tuesday I was UP 2 pounds from last Friday. Didn't get on the scale yesterday. (If I don't look, the number doesn't count, right?) This morning I was up 1 pound from last Friday.

My eating hasn't been as "tight" or strict as in the weeks leading up the Sunday. But, I'm not out of control either. I'm still getting back into a workout routine. So, I'm not stressing about the number on the scale...too much.....

I have papers to check, but it is after 10 PM. I need to get to bed. Tomorrow promises to be fairly crazy also. Smokey the Bear is making a visit and we are practicing following directions and making little acorn cookies. And then I'll be computer shopping after school.

Easygoing kinda day today-- nice for a change. Took the kids to the library....did "mish-mosh" for dinner....also known as, "Eat whatever you can find...kitchen's closed." leftovers....ham sandwiches....canned soups.... Nice.

Watched the movie with the kids....managed to stay awake for the bulk of it.

9am doctor's appointment for Aaron in the morrow-- another hemoglobin check. He's expecting it to be better...he did a bit of jogging today while at the girls' soccer game....retrieving wayward soccer balls, et cetera. He came home very enthused that he was neither short of breath, nor dizzy..... Good sign.

He's been working out downstairs, too-- push-ups, some weights.... I told him how proud I am of him. He's handled this incredibly well. My boy just might be growing up after all.... You couldn't expect any more of a grown man.....really proud.

Heading to bed....love to all.

This is one of the best things about exercise, imho. It's a great mood regulator.

I've been wondering about what you were doing since the marathon. I agree that a plan after a big race (or any event) is a good idea. I worked at visualizing what I was going to do after the Tri and after the Wedding. Just the first day, mind you, as I'm not big on longer plans than that. It sounds like you're on your way again. Keep us advised!

This gives me such a warm, happy feeling inside. You worried about him so much before his illness, worried about his life during it and now you're seeing an improvement. What could be better? (Ok, maybe better might be not having a life-threatening illness but you know what I mean.)

Hi everybody! I have been swamped again, as usual, so I have to start transcribing here very soon if I want to have any hope of meeting today's deadlines.

Swamped, but not skipping workouts, and I'm sticking to my plan regarding eating. I'm pleased with that.

Kaylynne, Andrea is staying remarkably upbeat. Thanks for asking. She goes in today to volunteer for the first time since she was let go and to pick up her final paycheck. I would think that would be hard, but she is really excited about going back in. When I think about where she was a year ago, I feel really positive about the direction she is heading.

heart you all. Now I really must get to work.

Happy Friday!!!

Jill, good news re: Andrea. I hope she has a good time today.

Kaylynne, sorry about the laptop. I'm pretty sure our computer died this week at home. I say "pretty sure" because I'm not very techy and I really haven't tried anything since Tuesday evening when it sort of "died". Totally ticks me off. No worries about the unladylike language. Sometimes inappropriate stuff actually comes out of my mouth and is not just in my head. Oops. ohwell

The plan for now it head to the gym. My legs are sore. Getting better as the day goes on. I don't think I have the extra time to get dressed, do a 5K, get lunch and back to work today. But, I'll do what I can for as long as I can do it, which is better than sitting on my arse not doing anything.
