I'm Not Fat!
I went on a run and walk tonight just to relieve stress and get in some extra steps. While I was on my run, I had the thought, "I'm not fat". What was weird about thinking this was that I didn't immediately have 3 other thoughts attacking that o... Read more
The Run and Lindora
I just realized that I hadn't updated after I ran my 10K mud run. It went really well. My friend who I signed up with didn't train as much as I had, so I ended up walking more than I would have otherwise because I didn't want to ditch her. We ha... Read more
I was on my run last night and just happened to start thinking about how God knows what we need better than we do. I thought I needed a weight machine- He gave me dumbbells. I thought I needed to take fancy classes at a gym (requiring a gym memb... Read more
As of the first of the year, my husband and I (along with my dad and a couple of our friends) are signed up to run the Camp Pendleton 10K Mud Run this June. In light of that, I have really stepped up my running routine. Saturday, I even managed ... Read more
My husband and I started a new exercise program and have been doing level 1 of Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred for about 2 weeks now (5 days a week). Yay! - that I've lost 5 lbs since starting, but Boo!- that I've GAINED an inch and a half on my ... Read more
Quote of the Day
Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged.

Yay for Weigh-in day!
I haven't weighed in in about a month. I keep stepping on the scale and it shows little change, so I assumed nothing's really happening. My clothes feel about the same, but when I actually took my measurements today I discovered that I have lost... Read more
Went for another morning run today. I got dressed thinking to myself I would just walk, just to get some exercise before the kids get up. After I stretched, I opened the door and my neighbor was just leaving for work. Now, I'm not usually a show... Read more
Well, I had a goal for myself to try running in the morning. It seems to be easier than running after dinner and leaving my hubby to put both kids to bed (although he is perfectly capable and doesn't complain about it, I just feel bad making him... Read more
A bit off track
Well, this past weekend was a busy one. We started it off with poker night at a friend's house. I only had one piece of pizza, but I did eat a few snacks along with 2 cups of coffee. I didn't beat myself up too much, but it still wasn't the best... Read more
1/2 mile running!
Well, I forced myself to go running tonight after dinner. I'm glad I did, but it's really REALLY hard to find motivation to go then. I do much better in the afternoon but can't go then because I'd be trying to run a mile with a double stroller. ... Read more
Walking up a storm
Well, since I found out about the baby, I have stopped taking my medication for my cough until I can talk to the doctor to figure out what's safe. That means no inhaler, which means no running for the time being. I have been walking TONS though.... Read more
Well, expecting baby #2 is exciting. I have my first doctor's appt. in a couple weeks. So far, so good. I feel fine. It's still sinking in. Wow. Life will be busy! Hopefully I can keep running for awhile, as I've started to really like it, and s... Read more
My last mile came the night after my friend's bachelorette party. Halfway through, I was telling God that I would never poison my body with that much alcohol again as long as he got me through the mile. He did. So I'm going to respect my body a ... Read more
