Just 10 hours away from the start of the Avon Walk. It will be an early rise tomorrow. Need to be at the starting line by 5:45am. 6:15 start time for the first 26.1 miles. Got all kinds of nervous energy going on.
Checked in this evening and had an early dinner. I am just about tucked in for an early night.
More to come.

Today! There is no better time. There is no other place. It all begins today. (Well, I already started my new way of life a few days ago when I 1st found this blog. Let me tell you about myself and then we can catch up on the here and now and my future.
HI. My name is Dee. I am 50 ----wow! It seems so weird to write that. I am 50 years old. Anyway. So I am 50. I have pretty much had weight issues my entire life unless it was some stressful time when the stress was too much then I…Continue
I got to my lowest weight whilst training for a 50k then for some reason I put on 8lbs and cant get it off. My race is in 2 weeks. I still was not at goal weight but I was close to a milestone like 2lbs close! I feel depressed and ashamed and now I can't wait till my race is over so I can try a different type of training to see if I can shock my body into losing again. I have like 40-50lbs to goal I have lost about 87. I hate the process I hate how long it takes I hate not being where I want…Continue
Ok, today I will be the lucky recipient of a colonoscopy. I know this is probably a very strange comment but I don't mind this procedure. My stomach is empty, I have HAD to not eat ... how come we can do a colonoscopy prep, not eat for 32 hours, and manage but we can't resist that temptation for the bagel or donut at work or that 'sliver' of pie for dessert? Why, when we have to resist and eat NOTHING we can do it?
I am looking at…Continue
Today I started my 'diet' again. I will be 55 in a little less than two weeks and realized that this will likely be my last chance to get it right. Yo yo dieting has been my modus operandi. I always said I know how to lose weight, I just don't know how to keep it off. I have had 5-6 iterations of this throughout my life - losing weight, vowing to never let myself get uncomfortable weight-wise again...only to succumb to the temptations out there and give in. The reasons are many and I…Continue
Thanks to my awesome husband I was able to get away for 4 glorious days with my girlfriends while he stayed home and held down the fort with the little guy. It was the perfect long weekend getaway. We went to a cute little town about 2 hours away and rented out a cabin. We stayed up late giggling, telling stories, and watching girly movies. We slept in without being woken up by crying kids or nagging alarm clocks. We lazily got ready, had breakfast at the cabin, and moved on our own…Continue
Wow! Three years ago today I was in the kitchen listening to the radio (after a night of too much wine and food) and heard a program that said if you drink you shouldn't be drinking every day. That was a big slap across the head! Yikes. I had wine almost every day and I was too fat (222 pounds at 5'8") and I was 61 1/2 and not getting any younger. That day I committed to stop drinking during the week (hey! there is only so much a girl can do) and to pay attention to my tracking AND to…Continue
I realize I can not exercise a bad diet away. I have continued with my exercise. My husband got me to get the bike out of the basement and on the bike trail this summer. We rode 12 miles 5-6 days a week. I did not lose weight. I did get my thyroid tested and it was normal. Hmm. I did have several other tests done too. An EKG showed I have a very slow beating heart. Dr felt it was due to all the exercise I do. A terrible & painful cough was thought to be asthma, but a breathing test…Continue
In just 6 days, I will venture on my second 39.3 mile walk to benefit Breast Cancer. The closer it gets, the more excited I get. Last week, I can honestly say that I was almost dreading it. Knowing how exhausted and fatigued my body would be. How my feet will hurt for almost a week. .... but then I think about it. Those little aches and pains are absolutely nothing compared to what someone with the disease has to face.
With that. I walked 5 miles last night and plan my last…Continue
