Good Runs and Bad Runs and Needing to Go

Sunday, July 03, 2011      7 comments

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      38 comments

Monday, June 27, 2011 My stomach was turning all day. In part because it was still messed up from Friday's fiasco/sudden illness. But more in part because I had 20 minutes of straight running ahead of me. Around 4pm, I started surfin... Read more

Adventures in Running From a FitFat Girl

Saturday, June 25, 2011      24 comments

A Difficult Week

Wednesday, June 15, 2011      16 comments

So week 1 of my restart had its good moments and its bad moments. As of today I am 323 pounds...still. Which means I lost nothing, but also that I gained nothing this week. So how'd this all work out for me? The Good: 1) I finished wee... Read more

Monday, June 13, 2011      19 comments

First of all, right out the gate I must say - I was PROUD of myself this weekend. Friday morning I got up earlier than my alarm (around 7:30am). I started my day with some coffee, 1/2 a bagel, and some Spark before heading out for my run a... Read more
