While standing in line today, I debated between a hot passion tea ( which is my FAVORITE) or a coffee calorie bomb that tastes amazing. Guess what? I chose the tea, not just because it was my favorite, but because it has teeny tiny calories, tastes delicious, and does not overtake my calorie range f... Fri, 16 Aug 2013 13:00:43 EST Strawberry Shortcake...Coffee? Yes, Ma'am!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5434287 I do not know how many of you are from the East coast and get to enjoy the pleasure of Dunkin' Donuts, but here on the West coast it has never happened. I shop at Target often because I love it so very much. The other day I was grabbing my usual box of Tazo Passion Tea and seen that Dunkin'Donuts had bagged coffee of Strawberry Shortcake flavored coffee. What?! How is this possible? <BR> <em>271</em> <em>106</em> <em>106</em> <em>287</em> <em>287</em> <em>287</em> <BR> <... Fri, 26 Jul 2013 13:10:18 EST The Painful Hammie and Motivational Boost http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5416888 I hurt so bad...and it does not feel good. My hamstring is killing me and it hurt to even walk on the treadmill. I planned on tacking five miles onto my running this week today, but did not feel like increasing my pain. I walked for two miles and then rowed for fifteen minuets. I felt defeated, but that feeling only caused me to reassess myself, my fitness, and my nutrition. I do not stretch regularly, I have not been fueling my body properly, and I have not been in the zone lately with my ru... Wed, 10 Jul 2013 15:17:00 EST Pounding The Trails http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5411942 " This is so tough! I run decent on the treadmill, why can't I run the same way on my own on the trail?" This was exactly what I was thinking on my first run out of the gym tonight. I felt as though I could not even make it a single mile and my legs just wanted to ooze to the ground. As I watched other runners on the trail, I noticed one common thread between them all: They were pacing themselves and making their run just that..their run. For some reason I think that I need to be running a ce... Fri, 5 Jul 2013 23:06:21 EST Half Marathon Training http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5387175 So, I am in week three of my marathon training. It has been going so well that I decided to sign up for the half marathon option instead of the 5k. Talk about a big leap of faith!! The race is not until December, so I figure I have plenty of time to train properly. I know I am not going to sweep the competition or anything, but I do know that I will feel fantastic just because I am able to accomplish something that I never thought I will never be able to do. I always viewed runners as insane.... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 17:09:37 EST Starting Anew..Inside and Out! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5362372 Yay!! I am finally graduating with my bachelors degree this weekend. It has been a long and stressful journey but I made it! Know what I also made? The scale go up almost 40 pounds during my undergrad. Yup...it is time to reset myself and get back to my happy weight! Now that things are winding down, I can focus on me and re-establish my good habits. I will be taking class still for graduate studies, but only part time. Another perk? I can still keep my on campus job since I am taking classes... Mon, 20 May 2013 14:06:31 EST Walnut Taco Salad RAVE!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5213263 Okay..so after educating myself on the benefits of a plant based diet, I have been adding way more meatless meals into my diet. I have used tofu, which is pretty good and I am also transitioning to soymilk and yogurts. I guess you can say I am going vegavegan lol. I bought some non dairy cheese that I still need to try. I was kind of iffy about the whole " It melts and stretches" statement. I would hope it melts and stretches if its cheese or supposed to be cheese lol!! This is a personal dec... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 15:41:57 EST Biking Diaries: Week 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5206690 I recently bought a bike that I have been eyeing for a very long time. Its nothing fancy though soon I will invest in a better bike. Its a cheapy Huffy from Walmart that a bought myself for Christmas. I have not been on a bike in years! Its so much fun, but its like my body is working against me. My nose runs like crazy everytime I work out, which is annoying especially when I go for a run ( which I am also a beginner ). Who wants snot flying out of their nose everytime they try to breathe?!... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 12:47:52 EST Relationships, Weight Loss, and Life Itslef http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5156091 So, I have not been on the blogging circuit since last year, but I need to vent, give thanks, and ask for advice to whoever may come across and read this blog of mine. I am struggleing in ending a relationship I have been in for 3 years. He is a great guy, but I am just over it. I am unhappy and feel unsatisfied. I have talked to him about it, but nothing ever changes. I feel like the relationship has run its course for me. I have changed as a person and realized the differences between us ( ... Tue, 4 Dec 2012 14:59:23 EST 3000 Steps On My Mini Stepper http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4594400 I finally did more than 1500 steps on my mini stepper today! I know 3,000 is still a small number but its huge to me since i never reached that number before. I feel accomplished today and cant wait for another accomplishment tomorrow:) Mon, 21 Nov 2011 19:30:12 EST My first 5k:) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4557923 Last Sunday I did my first 5k!! It was only a 5k walk but it was very encouraging and made me want to get back on track to do the run next year. Until then I will up my fitness to meet my goals and even do more 5k's and even runs until then. It was such a motivating day and I will take that with me through this entire Spark journey/ Fri, 28 Oct 2011 20:30:11 EST
