Holy #@!$, two events in one weekend!
I know I haven't been very active on here. I have been tracking my fitness, because I do have a goal-the Rock & Roll Half Marathon in Vegas this Decemeber. I've already registered & reserved the hotel & flight, so I will do it regardless-it's ju... Read more
Time to dig out the next size, yee-haw!
I'm getting psyched. I've lost about 17 pounds, about 5 inches around my waist & another 3-4 around my hips. I'm pear-shaped, and lately my size 20 pants & size 18 tops were getting tight-especially the pants! And now, my 20's are loose-time t... Read more
Yep, can't go it alone

What a day
On this incredible day for our nation, it seems trivial for me to talk about how proud I am that I finally made it to the gym today. But, we all have goals to reach & mountains to conquer, & I am incredibly lucky & fortunate that my biggest sour... Read more
Wagon-hopping with Bob & Joelle
Over & over again I do it-on the wagon, off the wagon-basically, I need to stop this wagon-hopping! For me, it's not being "off the wagon" in reference to booze or drugs, it's the wagon of healthy eating & exercise. I have had more Monday star... Read more
