2016 so far

...has already had quite a few ups and downs. The Ups My dad's store moved to a new location and it is pretty amazing. Nicer and newer with better parking and facilities. It's been a stressful time for him but I think things are finally settling down and falling into place. Hubs had some big/positive... Continue Reading →

feet frustration

The best laid plans... I seem to fail a lot. And this time it's not even because I'm being lazy or procrastinating or anything like that. Its because I can barely walk in the mornings and throughout the day after sitting for a while, and although the foot pain eases, I can't go more than... Continue Reading →

miscellany

Sick. I really wish someone would bring me some warm gooey chocolate chip cookies today. I'm home sick with a fever, cough, etc etc and I say screw the chicken noodle soup, cookies are where its at. Anyway, mutter mutter growl. At least I should be over it in plenty of time to enjoy the... Continue Reading →

breathe momma breathe

Being a parent is THE most stressful thing. And I have it easy. One kid. No major health issues. Normal behavior. Easy peasy. Yet still THE most stressful thing. I must be a complete wuss or something. Kiddo had a tummy bug a couple of weekends ago. She recovered in a couple of days but... Continue Reading →

moving…

...my body that is. And brain too, I suppose. Feeling good lately with better food choices and consistent work outs at the gym and walking/jogging outside. The weather is supposed to be icky this week so I've tried to take advantage of the good stuff while I can and have been getting my walks done... Continue Reading →

the ‘rents and a walk

Besides the race this weekend, my parents spent Friday-Sunday with us and it was a great visit. Kiddo probably bugged them to death but I don't think they minded too much. She had Papa on bicycles and swings and various playground equipment, Grandma read her stories and watched some questionable dance moves, plus a trip... Continue Reading →

Yesterday’s workout

Because you care. I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I'm scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I'm delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know. Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and... Continue Reading →

dud of a run

So, we entered Pathetic Town on the run today. It didn't start off well, nor did it end well either. I had downloaded my intervals onto the Garmin, got dressed, grabbed my gear, got to the greenway and realized that I'd forgotten....the Garmin. No biggie, I have Runkeeper on my phone. Yay for backup plans.... Continue Reading →

body betrayed

I've rested my foot for the past three days. Two of those days I rested completely and cross-trained on the other one. Today it was time to get back out there. I walked the dog first and got in a 1.4 mile warm up. Then ran/walked 3.4 more miles. It wasn't pretty. I got through... Continue Reading →

bodies break

So far so good on the 1/2 training. Mostly. I was pumped to run outside last night but by the time I was free to do so, it was pouring rain and lightning. I will run in the rain no problem, but lightning is another bear. So to the gym I went and got in... Continue Reading →

1:21 am heartburn

I have a kickin' case of heartburn and can't sleep. I woke up feeling like my tongue and throat were swelling up. Weird right? So I googled side effects of my new meds and fought back the urge to call 911. Seriously people, don't try to self diagnose via the internet because it will scare... Continue Reading →

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor's best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur... Continue Reading →
