I have to get up early and leave at 8am (that's early for me!) to go to Detroit to see my friend defend his dissertation (we're carpooling and taking back a bunch of stuff to BB&B to defray the cost a bit, and Lynne, if you're not busy - I'll be... Read more
Ok, I have lots of pics of the Color Run, courtesy of JAYNINNE and my friend and past running trainer Mike, who was also there (never saw him though - there were SO many people!).
Before the race:

This morning was the Color Run! I ran with my very first (and last) running partner JAYNINNE, and we had a blast. It was SO FULL OF PEOPLE. I mean, thousands and thousands. I mean, a long line of porta-johns, and it was still a 20 minute wai... Read more
I woke up to rain this morning, and I'm not one of those people that likes running in the rain , so I decided to put it off a day. It turns out tomorrow morning will be cool and sunny, and a great day to do a long run on the Kiwanis Trail. I w... Read more
Today I went to see the orthopedic doctor, who saw me for my back in January and then again in February. I told him about how my hip had hurt from January - June, sometimes worse than others, and then I took the mattress topper off my bed and i... Read more
I don't know what happened to my sweet little boy, but since he turned 3, he has become EVIL. Oh man, he is getting naughty. Defiant, ignores us, hits and throws things, etc. I guess we missed the Terrible Two's but we're making up for lost t... Read more
What a long break from blogging! I was on vacation, and I didn't want to sit and blog. Some days, I didn't even open up the computer. There was too much fun, exploring, swimming, and drinking to do!
We went to SEVEN brew pubs while we we... Read more
So much has been going on! Saturday we packed, got the house picked up, instructed the cat-sitter and garden-sitter what to do, and drove up to Metro-Detroit. I got my bangs trimmed and extensions moved further back, and then went to my mom's ... Read more
I haven't been as good about blogging as I was before... I have been busy and not really in the mood to talk, I guess.
So, we had another birthday party for Avery on the 4th, with my mom, stepdad, aunt and uncle. My mom took Avery with he... Read more
Well, I finally faced the music this morning, and got on the scale in the first time in 5 days. And... ugh, I gained weight. Of course. But I'm not surprised... I've been eating well over my calorie range over the past several days.
This... Read more
I've been soooo busy! Aaaahhhh!!!

I think I'm going to start my period in a couple days, so I wasn't too upset when the scale went up. I was upset that it took me back to "obese" from "overweight." I also hate that awful noise the Wii Fit makes. When I pick my Mii from the li... Read more
Tomorrow is going to be 101 degrees. Ugggghhhhhh...
This morning I woke up and went for an early run. I ran 3 miles - my old run downhill, and then uphill again. Halfway through the run, there is a steep uphill climb that still is treac... Read more
I had this great plan that I was going to stay within my calorie range and drink 5+ cups of plain water... but instead I ate like 350 over my limit, and didn't make my water goal either.
Tomorrow will be better!
Yesterday I bought some... Read more
