Wow, it's been over a year since I posted anything! While I wish I could say so much has changed and I've made incredible progress in my absence, truth is I slacked off quite a bit, especially during the holidays. In fact I'm still struggling to... Read more
I'm always hesitant to make resolutions. Most of the time they just end in epic fails. I went back and forth on whether I should make any or just not bother. Ultimately I decided why not? If I fail, I fail. So long as I'm not dwelling on the fai... Read more
New year, new day
New Year's Eve and Day were fairly quiet at my house, just family and a few board games. It was very low key, just the way I like it. It was the first New Year's in a long time that I didn't cry and/or feel miserable and depressed. I was happy a... Read more
October wasn't the best for making progress. I had a few goals in mind, but I never got around to posting them and never really held myself accountable. That's going to change this month, and so far so good, even if it is only November 1st. One ... Read more
Just a little update
How is it that October is almost gone?! This whole year has just flown by and now it's already time for the holidays. Wow... Normally I'd feel like I've wasted so much time with 2011 passing by so fast, but I feel like I've done anything but was... Read more
I've been feeling so out-of-sorts lately. Nothing in particular is wrong, but I can't sleep, I'm anxious, and in such a funk. It's probably just the not-so-changing seasons. I love fall and winter, but after one day of fall-like weather, it's li... Read more
Failure to plan...
...is a plan to fail. But what happens when your plan seems to be the problem? This week was the first time I had planned my runs -- EVER. Like really, really planned down to the mileage and type. Before I was just concerned with building up to ... Read more
A Little Update
I've been meaning to write this blog post for a while now, but it seems like I keep forgetting. It's hard to believe that it's been nearly FIVE months since the last one! I wish I knew where the time went so I could take some of it back. ;)

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.... Read more
BLC Challenge Update
I swear, these past few days have just flown by! Needless to say blogging hasn't been on my list of priorities nor trying to get a perfect score on this challenge unfortunately. It's been a miracle I've gotten at least 5 points a day, lol, well ... Read more
BLC Challenge #2, Day 2
Just a quick update before I'm off to bed. It's been a long and busy day full of errands and a trip to the vet. Needless to say, my eating was a mess. I was over by about 450 calories for the day. Hopefully some of the running around offset a li... Read more
Non-Scale Victories & BLC Challenge #2 Day 1
After the horrible day eating-wise yesterday, I needed something good to reaffirm that I'm on the right track...and I got it!
I know the scale isn't the only measurement of my success. Muscle does way more than fat, after all. It is the onl... Read more
I had planned an entirely different topic to blog about, but considering the day I've had, it has since changed. You see, when it comes to enabling, I'm my own worst enemy. I've even rationalized my binges by telling myself that so long as I'm l... Read more
Highs and lows
I had such high hopes for this day. I had my meals all planned out. I even ran a quick mile when today was my rest day. But as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. As I've found out since moving back home with four other peo... Read more
Another week down...
Feels like it's been such a long time since my last blog! Thankfully there haven't been any new wildfires in the area, and the one north of here is at 75% contained. Unfortunately those north and east of here haven't been so lucky. It's going to... Read more
