The only one who can tell you YOU CAN'T is you...

Here lately, I am trying to find balance in my life. Balance between work, working out, my daughter, my relationship, hobbies... everything.

Right now, I am a single mom first and foremost. I love my daughter and strive to give her everything she needs. I am working hard to move my way up that corporate ladder in my career.

Here lately, I am trying to find balance in my life. Balance between work, working out, my daughter, my relationship, hobbies... everything.

Right now, I am a single mom first and foremost. I love my daughter and strive to give her everything she needs. I am working hard to move my way up that corporate ladder in my career. I work a smal part time job for extra fun money. I love to run. I love to laugh and be silly and try not to take life too seriously. When I can be a complete goof and relaxed, it is my preferred persona... and its not too often you wont see me with a smile on my face.

Health and fitness is about enjoying life... I love to eat, so I am constantly finding new healthy places to eat and new recipes to make. I find activities that I enjoy doing... running mainly, but somedays, walking about the mall until my legs hurt can be just as beneficial, or playing on the Wii, or taking a yoga class.

So that sums it up. I havent been active on SP like I want to, but in the 7 years I have been on this site, I always come back. I love to share my life journey and to hear/see your life journey as you experience and share your struggles and successes.

Hey girl! I'm still around! Not using Spark too much other than to track fitness minutes on the app and for the occasional wheel spin emoticon I've been using MyFitnessPal, Pinterest for recipes and P90X...yet also seeing some unflattering pics of myself so trying to kick it into a higher gear. I miss chatting with you too! How's it going?? Hope you're having a good summer! emoticon emoticon

Still using your Fuelband? I'm hoping to find more active group members to keep me motivated. Congrats on your success so far!! emoticon

A trip to the mountains... now that sounds emoticon .

I was thinking about the Streetlight 5k, too, but I struggle with how to eat for an evening race. My hubby and I do one every year because it falls within days of our anniversary (yes, we celebrate by running a race...weird, right?) and only once have I felt like I didn't have a rock in my stomach. emoticon

As of right now, we're thinking of doing the Empowering Lifestyles 5k ( pretty sure it's on the 14th) and for August, we are doing the Rock 'N Run 5k at the Music Factory in Charlotte. Hubby has done it a couple of times and he really likes it (even though it is one of the few races he hasn't gotten an award at- tough field of runners). In the past, it's been chip-timed so I'm looking forward to an accurately timed, fairly flat course. emoticon Might be a good choice for your sub-30 minute 5k. emoticon

If we're not in touch before your vacation, have a great trip. And if you ever want to get together for a easy run (I'm not as fast as you), just let me know.
emoticon

Peace & Blessings, Candy

How's the training going? I have decided to do another 1/2 marathon this fall. I am back up to 5 miles and will just keep adding miles each week. Still kicking myself for not staying in training mode! I am not fond of outdoor winter running, kills my training every year. Have a good week! emoticon
