Levee Loop recap and a lot of thinking

Sunday, June 07, 2009      2 comments

Well the trail run yesterday was really really nice. It was a wonderful running day and the trail was actually pretty dry, considering we got a ton of rain here last week. The off-road running was so nice on my feet. I may have to use that tr... Read more

Reward for six more weeks

Friday, June 05, 2009      3 comments

I am not good at rewarding myself; I usually feel as if taking time for myself is selfish and that I should be doing something other than taking time for me. My first big reward is a new iPod shuffle; tomorrow I'm heading down to the Apple stor... Read more

I may have to buy a bigger reward than I thought!

Not because I am doing extraordinarily well (even thought I'm doing pretty darn good, if I do say so myself), but because my computer is on the fritz. The printer is not getting recognized when we try to use it, and the shift button on the left... Read more

A June 2nd Short One

Tuesday, June 02, 2009      1 comments

Don't have too much to report today. I am going to sign off soon and start working on my June goals. Grab my calendar, look at my schedule, and start going. I am having two moles removed on June 17th (Ugh... but better safe than sorry) so I'l... Read more

Rewarding myself

Monday, June 01, 2009      2 comments

Just now I went back to one of the "Action Steps" for this diet stage I'm in. It was to reward myself for 12 weeks of hard work (it's been over 12 weeks now). I realized that I still haven't *really* rewarded myself for this. Sure, I bought s... Read more

I am officially nuts.

Yesterday morning I ran a 5K and last night I did a 2 mile walk in Philly for Crohn's research. This morning I woke up at 6:00 and decided to do another 5K near my mom's house. I knew it wasn't going to be for speed, but more for a workout. T... Read more

Heritage Run 5K recap

Saturday, May 30, 2009      3 comments

Well I had two goals for today. 1) to finish in a better time today than my last 5K 2) to not finish last (yeah, a superficial goal, but it kept me moving.) I met both goals. Wahoo! My time today was 31:57 - beat my last time by 22 sec... Read more

Swimming blind

Thursday, May 28, 2009      3 comments

Last night I took a nap after dinner, before the gym (it's a weird nap time, but it happens often). I slept in my contacts (bad idea) so I took them out to go to the gym. I was going swimming, so it didn't really matter if I could see or not. ... Read more

A quickie for Tuesday

Tuesday, May 26, 2009      1 comments

Don't have too much to say tonight... went to the gym and did a great upper body workout and some core stuff, and did an easy run. Drank all my water today and then some. Scrambled egg whites with hot sauce and and an English muffin for break... Read more

Tortoise and Hare 5K Day

Monday, May 25, 2009      4 comments

My time today was 32:19. Not bad, but I was really hoping to beat my last time of 31:35. Today's course was hilly and it was HOT. Four of us ran today, not all together (we have very different times). Sometimes it's frustrating to run "with"... Read more

Saturday stuff

Saturday, May 23, 2009      1 comments

Well it's been a stressful couple of days. Here are some good things. We have three cars, so even though my car is at the shop, I was able to go grocery shopping and get some stuff done today. My mechanic is absolutely wonderful, and I c... Read more

And the saga continues...

Friday, May 22, 2009      1 comments

Well there is good news and bad news. The bad news is that I still do not have a car. the good news is that my wonderful mechanic figured out what was wrong and is going to fix it tomorrow. The bad news is that my water pump and timing belt n... Read more

TGI (almost) F

Thursday, May 21, 2009      1 comments

So yesterday I wrote in my blog about my car problem. Today my car is down at my very trustworthy mechanic, and my very negative review is sent to Midas. After I present them with the write-up about what was wrong with my car (i.e. what they s... Read more

OM freakin G

Wednesday, May 20, 2009      1 comments

Today has been one of those days. I took my car in to get an oil change, 80K checkup, and inspection. After making it very clear this morning that those THREE things needed to be done, I didn't get the 80K checkup stuff taken care of. I found... Read more

Well, it's Tuesday.

Today I got an e-mail from Sparkpeople about going to Stage 4. I didn't go on. I am staying in stage 3 and really going to re-evaluate my goals and re-visit them as well. I must get back to thinking about my long-term goals and not settle for... Read more
