Re-Committing myself

Monday, November 28, 2011      2 comments

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

My Summer at a Healthy Weight

Tuesday, July 26, 2011      3 comments

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

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

Pulling Myself Over!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011      4 comments

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

Learning about myself

Wednesday, April 20, 2011      7 comments

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

Training for the Dam to Dam

Wednesday, March 30, 2011      2 comments

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

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

Friday, December 17, 2010      3 comments

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

Wednesday, December 15, 2010      3 comments

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
