Running in the snow

Thursday, October 25, 2012      2 comments

All morning long I was trying to talk myself out of my run. I like to run outside. The dreadmill is so hard for me...not that I have one anyway. Last night it snowed. It was 34 degrees during my run...not so bad, but it was also a little windy. ... Read more

A lot of people have been approaching me and saying something like this: "You've lost 95 pounds!? What's your secret?" I usually start my response with something like this: "Okay, I'll tell you my secret. It's a big one...ready? It's called diet... Read more

I've been in a slump since I ran a 10K almost 3 weeks ago. I've been keeping up with my running, but my diet has been abysmal! We've had so many birthdays and family parties lately and I've talked myself into the idea that I "deserve a break." I... Read more

It's my birthday, I think I'll run a 10K.

Saturday, September 08, 2012      3 comments

That's how I chose to start my 29th birthday. I ran my first 10K race this morning! My goal was to run the entire race, which I did. I'm not terribly fast, but I think I did well. I finished the race in 1:07:30.9. My mom was going to run the 5K ... Read more

I walked/jogged my first 5K today. I finished in 39:44.6. I was thrilled with that time considering I was positive it would take me 54 minutes (I realized after the race that my stride length on my pedometer was not set correctly!) I'm proud of ... Read more

Ask me how 55 pounds lighter feels...

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      4 comments

The answer is AMAZING! Now, I know I still have a long way to go, but I have never felt better! I have more energy (even though I'm still up every 3-4 hours with my baby), and I definitely notice a difference when I slip up. If 55 pounds lighter... Read more

Wednesday, February 08, 2012      3 comments

That's right, I've lost 50 pounds! (Well, 49.8...) It's amazing the difference 50 pounds can make in the way you feel. I still have a long way to go, but I feel better now than I have in years. Imagining how much better I'll feel when I reach my... Read more
