I couldn’t take watching the news this morning with the scenes from Oklahoma. So sad. I started to go for the usual run around the hood but I found this girl laying eggs in our lawn. I ran back in the house to grab my phone and take a picture. She dug two holes. I don’t know if she gave up on the first one or if she’s laying two batches of eggs. I’m already worrying...
May goals day 20
Since the 13th I have run only 9 more miles. That brings my total up to just a hair over 20. I wish I could include yardwork as I did a ton of it this weekend. No carb / low carb eating is still going well. I made a cake yesterday with cream cheese frosting. I did lick the spoon but I didn’t have a slice so I call that a win. It’s the first sugar I’ve had since April 28....
I feel like I have gained and lost the same 6-7 pounds over and over again for the last three years. And I can get right down to 150 pounds but can’t get into and stay in the 140’s. This morning (yeah, I bought another scale, I just can’t quit it) I was down to 150.5. I ran 2 miles this morning and my hip is still a bit sore. But I’ll take it for now.
May goals day 13. 1. Running - I have only 11 miles vs the goal of 50. I better get it in gear pretty soon. I’ve had to work late most nights but I think that is over with for a while. So back at it tomorrow. 2. No carb/low carb and no sugar - This is going really well. The only carbs I have had this month are 1 slice of bread (hot dog at a cookout and I just couldn’t) and 4...

Our yard has little baby turtles! So cute. I took a picture but you can’t even see it. The camera on my phone is not so good. If I can find one when I get home I’ll try again and post it. The little guy is adorable. 3.25 mile run yesterday brings me to just over 9 towards my goal for 50 miles in May. No carb/low carb eating is on track. I ran on the treadmill last night just...
May goals: Ran 3.25 treadmill miles yesterday. I still haven’t picked up a weight. Not sure why I find it a little intimidating. But the low carb eating is on track and I feel better for it. Now if only Mr. Eugene what put the Cheezits away. Game of Thrones tonight! And then back to the coal mine tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend.

You dress like shit these days. - no but I might convince myself to wear a dress tomorrow. And on a Friday no less Have a great night

jazzie-onamission: The Belgian organization for ALS (the disease my dad died from) is getting €1 per like their Facebook page gets. The maximum amount they will recieve is €20.000. It’s my dad’s birthday today. The message has been online since April 23rd and they only have 300 likes, even though the page… Here’s your chance to help fight ALS. All you have to do is click on...
Finally setting some goals for myself for May. Run 50 miles low/no carb eating - and NO sugar start weight program from “New Rules of Lifting” buy some clothes, you bum. You dress like shit these days. Carry on.
I am soooo hungry. Seriously, I am in pain. Just got called into a meeting that STARTS at 5:00. I hope your day is going better than mine!
I have a nagging injury for the last 2 weeks but it is finally staring to feel better. It’s at the top of my leg, inner thigh. Mr. Eugene keeps asking my how my groin is. So this morning I asked him how HIS groin is. “Lonely.” Ah, Mr. Eugene, I would have been disappointed if you’d said anything else.
Almost got the peel off without breaking it. It’s been a life long goal
Things are getting back to normal…tumblr ate my posts…cut off in traffic by a terrible driver. Heading into Boston for RedSox game. Feeling relief, sadness and gratitude.
Police have Bomber #2 in custody. Huge sense of relief and an end to a stressful week. There is a long recovery but now we can start.
Westcoastrunner: UNFINISHED BUSINESS 10K →
westcoastrunner: Many folks, including myself & @rookcanrun, did not get to finish what we started on marathon Monday! Rook (Bob) was much closer to finishing (.80) from the finish line than I was (6.1 miles). With that said, Bob and I have decided to finish what we started that day. Bob is willing to come… Do it! I hope to be there, too.
nhlbruins: Watch as all 17,565+ at TD Garden belt out the national anthem prior to the Bruins/Sabres game. Boston Strong. Just want to leave this here for the future if I ever need it. You need not watch it, but it’s beautiful.
nhlbruins: We are Boston. We are Strong. Watch the video that played prior to tonight’s Bruins game in support of those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy.
I bought this on the way home last night. I don’t need the nutrition plan so much as I need the techniques and moves. I need to get stronger. And just running isn’t going to get me there. I think the lack of strength is why every couple of months I develop some kind of nagging injury. If I was in better condition that probably wouldn’t happen.
It’s always nice to have something to believe in. If we can get people’s minds...– Forward Brad Marchand, on the Bruins hoping to provide even the smallest solace from Monday’s tragic events in Boston (via nhlbruins) How can anyone call him “The Little Ball of Hate”. He’s a teddy Bruin.
If you ran yesterday
I hope you can find a moment to be proud of your accomplishment. You trained so hard, put in the miles, endured the pain. We are so proud of you. Don’t let whoever did this take that away

thereluctantrunner: Read More I went to college in Boston and lived and worked in the city for a long time. I now live a few miles outside the city and work at the edge of the Concord-Lexington Battlegrounds where Patriots Day was commemorated on Monday. Patriots then. Patriots now.
mr-lindsey: From Twitter: Boston EMS/police/fire saying they need ppl on social media to let ppl stuck in bars & restaurants to know a street sweep is happening
Still no concrete news here in Boston but some news websites are down. Are any of you hearing of serious injuries. Because I am and it’s scaring the hell out of me.
Tough to get information but a friend has been evacuated from her building. She can’t get to her car so she’s hanging around. There are some injuries. And I heard that the race has been suspended.
Just got a call from Mr. Eugene. Pipe bombs reported near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Hope all you runners are safe today. If i hear more I will post.
An unscheduled night off is just what I need. My leg hurts. And I have the house to myself for a while so ice cream and Thursday comedies it is.
I think I’m going through an awkward phase: finding the first grey hairs and some pimples during shark week. My general practioner mentioned that I should have something done about a small bone spur because “You’re young. Take care of it now.” My gynecologist told me I’m not getting any younger. I’m so confused. My feet are young and my ovaries are...
Another run in the books. This was my 4th one this week. Wha? They’ve been good ones so far but tonight was just so so. Still I will take it because getting it in on a Friday night bodes well for the weekend. Happy weekend y’all!
My better half
I was going to let myself off the hook and not run tonight. But Mr. Eugene was ready to go when I got home so hells yeah I went. So glad I did. Um. It’s snowing again. He wanted to go to the gym and no problem. I’m with you. I stopped listening to music and downloaded a few pod casts. What a difference. Twice I got so in the zone I forgot I was running. So unreal. At one...
I ate desserts yesterday like it was my job.
