Another Beautiful Weekend

Another great weekend. This has been a very relaxing weekend. Maybe it is because I haven’t spent the weekend with my family in 2.5 months. It makes every minute that I have with them, that much more special. Although now I have “teenager’s stress”- I love it. Lately, I’ve been down memory’s lane thinking of the times that my boys held a conversation with me. Today it’s “Mom….can you take me to the mall?” But more time than not, it’s “_________”. You got it….. silence.

Running has become my drug of choice again!!!

In the last 2 weeks, I have been averaging 14 miles. It’s getting up there again. Since I’ve taken up running again, I have been more relaxed and under less stress.

I have come up with many solutions to current issues on long runs and I am really being to feel like myself again.

Upcoming Fitness Schedule:


Thanks to the new scale…Here is an update after 1 week:

Wgt: 167.6
fat: 20.1%
water: 53.3%
muscle mass: 36.7%
bone mass: 3.9%

I’m still analyzing the current results to make sure that I’m losing in the correct manner. Meaning not losing my muscle and losing more fat. Currently I have 61.6 lbs of fat!!
I’m loving this new scale!

Another Baby????

Look Great in 8 week 2!

I. Cardio: 4 days this week
II. Strength train: 4 days this week
III. Flex: 3 days this week
IV. Abs: 1 day this week
V Cheat day: 1 day this week

This week I was to start my back-yard BBQ experience, however, the weather did not comply with my wishes. But I still will COOK tonight and have my back-yard BBQ experience inside tonight.

For the last 20 odd years I have always wanted a BMW 325i convertible 1988 model. The beauty of having that car symbolizes to me that I can achieve any goal. That with time, my dreams will come to pass. And this week, another one of my dreams came true…

It isn’t a 325i. It’s a 318i. Even better, because it has back seats for joy rides with the Hubby and the kids!!!!

Keep running,

“Hi…I’m Skyy….
I have an issue….
I am a fitness freak who runs 25 miles a week..
who can do pushups until I turn blue…
who can crunch with the best of them….
but cannot do 38 full, military sit ups within two minutes.

but.. my husband loves me…
my kids love me…
i love me….
and most importantly…….
God loves me.

I’ll get back @ it.”


Hi…..I’m Skyy

I no longer have an issue.

I am a fitness freak who will run 25 miles each week

And do pushups until I turn blue..

I can crunch with the best of them…

And I can do 76 full, military sit-ups within two minutes.

Amazing what allowing my body to heal will do. No longer will my fitness level be considered an issue. Scoring 291 out of 300 only 13 months after having Anna seemed to validate what I had already knew…….@ 40 years old… some women need longer than 6 months to get back into shape before attempted full sit-ups. No longer will I allow others to influence what I believe about myself. I can’t change others, but I can change my outlook. I know those who wait in the shadows to kick me when I’m down. I know those who hang around to distract me from my goals. I will not be strayed. I will not be moved. I now walk forward…but glance around because I know that I have to watch my back. My friends have my interest in mind…..they don’t feed information to others about me…..I don’t need a fly on the wall hanging around me.

I will talk all day long…without saying what’s really on my mind. I won’t relay any deep dark secrets that may or may not be part of my past. So… there really is no need to hang around. You want to be a friend…..then be a friend. He didn’t say it… I knew it….why preach it? What’s the angle? Forget it…….

Shoo fly…..shoo…..

keep running…
keep loving..

New Scale

This has been a wonderful weekend. Not just because I have my sis here, but I am beginning to feel like myself again. Finally. Still on my exercise track and have decided that I will stay with it. I will continue to add long weekend runs because of how I feel after I finish a long run….refreshed, renewed, revived, alive.

Well….I rewarded myself with a new fitness scale. This one tells not only weight, but also body fat%, body water weight%, muscle mass %, and bone mass %. Not too shabby. My current results are upsetting…..but it gives me something to work towards.

Wgt: 176.2
fat: 21%
water: 53.4%
muscle mass: 36.7%
bone mass: 3.8%

So translation: 112.6 lbs of lean muscle mass
63.6 lbs of FAT

Way too high. But I have a valid starting point.
I also realize that what I put into my mouth is truly important. I must eat heart-friendly foods. I don’t want to get to the point that I am ill because of the foods that I’ve put into my mouth. I only have one body, one mind, one soul, and I need to take care of myself. I pretty much have the exercise thing down, now it’s time to focus on the nutrition. Nutrition for life, not for death….. I already know that I have a sugar addiction…so now I have to manage that addiction.

For my mind…..I still need to finish my transcription course and get on with it.
For my soul…… Well…. I must get back to church.

Keep running,
