I decided that this year is going to be the year for accountability. I am going to track each meal as well as my water intake and take responsibility for what is going on inside of me. And after talking about waking up at 5:00am to be at the gym... Read more
Insanity - Day 1 Fit Test
So, my mom bought me the insanity workout series for Christmas. I am hoping that by the end of the 60 days I can finally have the body that I had in high school. I really need to get rid of the food belly. Anyways, here are the stats from my fir... Read more
Half Marathon season is almost here!
Well, after an unplanned five week hiatus, I have finally started running again...just in time to prepare for the three half-marathons that I am planning on doing this fall. I think that I was using the gym being so far from my new job and the w... Read more
Back to Work!
Yet again I am back on Sparkpeople. I was doing so well with exercise and eating well...I even won the Biggest Loser Challenge at my work! I had a pretty consistent routine going, but I didn't like the job that I was at so instead of focusing on... Read more
I Need Running Tips!
Today was just not my day to run. I am proud to say that I have been running pretty consistently, which is important. This week I have run on Sunday, Monday, and this evening, except that on Sunday and Monday I ran with my husband around our dev... Read more
I Ran 5 Miles!
I can't believe it, but I just ran 5 miles today! I have been okay at three miles, and have been tired, but felt like I could do more, so today for my 'long' run, I decided to go for 5 miles instead of the planned 4 that I was going to do. I'm s... Read more
Tarheel 10 Miler and New Running Goals
Last Saturday my husband and I ran the Fleet Feet 4 Miler, which was part of the Tarheel 10 Miler at the University of North Carolina (GO HEELS!). I had originally signed up to run the 10 miler, but kind of forgot/was too busy to train, so I end... Read more
I just weighed myself in this morning, and if my morning measurements are accurate, I now weigh 142.8! I am SO close to be in the 140 range and I am so excited, because that means that I will be in the 130's soon--a number I haven't seen in YEAR... Read more
Went Down a Pants Size!
Yesterday was a very exciting day. For the past couple of weeks, I have a pair of jeans that I pretty much wear everyday during the week (I just started a job working with young two's, so I can't wear nice clothes to work - it's not appropriate!... Read more
Well, today is Easter and I am happy to say that I haven't eaten any easter candy! Sadly, that's about all I can be proud of. Last week was a wash for exercising since my husband left to go to PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) on Wednesday night, so I wan... Read more
Today is the last day that I am no longer working part-time. I caved and applied for a job at a preschool working with the toddlers because there are very few 'true' Administrative Assistant jobs around here that are offering full-time hours. I ... Read more
Ran a 5k Today!
Today I probably should have did the Jillian Michael's workout (I still might), but instead I decided to run at the YMCA. I joined a couple of weeks ago, and only have gone once, so I went there instead. Originally I was only going to run 2 mil... Read more
Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred: Level 1, Day 2
Today I completed day 2 of the level 1 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I am absolutely committed to completing this challenge, even if it isn't 30 days in a row like it maybe should be (I didn't do it yesterday because my abs hurt!). The 20 m... Read more
I finally feel like something has 'clicked' in this journey to get rid of this unnecessary extra poundage I have put on. While I wouldn't consider myself 'fat', I would definitely consider myself out of shape. I think because I'm petite the extr... Read more
A New Beginning
It's hard to believe that I have been back to this site for almost a week now. I quite honestly forgot about it and seemed to always be on Facebook. In the midst of Lent, I decided to delete my account, and have since focused any free computer t... Read more
