Week 2 of my re-committment has been great. I'm not doing... Read more
Ok, so I'm starting a new journey this time. I've been floating between the 155 and 160's since I first got down to 155. If I'm being honest with myself...the 155 and 150's didn't last more than a month. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't have ... Read more
Ok, so maybe I don't LOOK buff and fit - but I am at a healthy weight, I am extremely active, and I look better than I ever did in my 20s. Of course, I did spend my 20's having children, so I'm sure that has something to do with it.
It has... Read more
As of this week, I'm officially at my goal weight! It's seems strange. I have been following all my SP program ideas, just haven't had the time to log on with summer and all. I am so excited to start a maintenance journey. As I suspected, I ... Read more
My 3rd 20k went great! I beat my preveious personal record (PR) by 5 minutes. I averaged a 10 minute 17 second mile. So my total time was 2:07.45 minutes.
It was incredibly hot this time, and I'm always slower in the intense heat. So to... Read more
Ok, I have to police myself, because these last few days I have lost all control. I don't care what I eat or how much. I stopped counting calories last week, and it's been downhill. The self sabotage, or perhaps old habits, are rearing their ... Read more

Self sabotage...my dirty little secret. I'm hoping if I blog about it - I won't do it again. I seem to always get down to around 160, and then begin the sabatage.
Is it because I am too comfortable?
Is it because I am over confident in ... Read more

Today was my 3rd day of the 3rd week of training. I did 6 x 400's at a 5k pace. Well, I didn't really do it at a 5k pace - I did it at my wishful 5k pace. It went great and felt good. I ended up doing 7 or 8 so that I could finish close to 3... Read more
Hooray! Spring is here! Isn't it wonderful? We are in for a chilly week here in Iowa, but I'm not complaining.
I've started training for the 20k I'm going to do in June. I have been watching what I'm eating, but I'm having a few healt... Read more
Hi guys! I love the Joy Fit Club on the Today show. For those that missed it - or didn't know...there is a dirty dozen when it comes to produce. The 12 listed here are items you should buy ORGANIC because they have the most pesticides used on... Read more
I had a delicous sandwich at Starbucks a few mornings ago. It was the Veggie, Egg and Monterey Jack Artisan Breakfast Sandwich. I couldn't believe how delicious I thought it was since I'm not an egg sandwich lover.
So this morning, I had ... Read more
Well, despite the sickness of my family members, I did not get sick. Could it have been all the vegetables I've been eating? I don't know, either way, I'm greatful for the health I've had.
It's been a great week 1. I started the week at ... Read more
I weighed myself at the gym this morning and I'm down 2 1/2lbs. I think this is incredible because I feel stuffed every night. I'm following the plan and eating what I should and only add a carb or two on the days I exercise.
I do try to ... Read more
