I finally got my 30 min. run in on Wednesday. I had a "tempo run" scheduled for Thursday, but when I got home from work, I just wasn't in to it. DD#2 was going to go with me, but she had Career Day and spent the whole day on her feet with Dad ... Read more
End of School Year!
I'm sure all parents can relate to this. Why do the school systems cram everything possible in at the end of the school year?! As soon as Spring Break is over, it's 2 months of chaos. First the CRCT's and it doesn't end until the last day of ... Read more
Don't Run After Eating Doritos!
I'm ashamed that I even typed that. Sad but true! Sunday was another day of eating crap! After a good week of eating right & exercise and a pretty good Friday & Saturday, I blew it on Sunday. My SP blog is my confessional!
The weekend s... Read more
Ready for the Weekend!
This has been a really long week. I've been so busy, you'd think time would fly, but not so much. My boss is out of the office today through next Thursday. He'll be at meetings, so he'll still be accessible, but when he's in the office, it's... Read more
The Piper was paid,
and it wasn't too bad. I blogged on Monday that after a busy weekend and unreported (or even remembered!) eating and a couple of weeks of staying away from the scale, I was concerned about weighing in and felt I might need to "pay the piper". ... Read more
It's Probably Time to "Pay the Piper" . . .
but I'm not quite ready yet! I noticed it's been almost 2 weeks since I've "officially" weighed. The last recorded weight wasn't too bad - 3 lbs. over goal and 5 lbs away from where I want to be. However, I'm really nervous about the results.... Read more
Full Plate!? **Biggest Loser Spoiler Alert**
DH and I were going over the calendar yesterday morning during a brief period of time when we were actually together. He's been working a lot of nights (not overnights - thank goodness) and he's also working some side jobs, so we kind of just p... Read more
Spring Break Update
Spring Break messed up my running training. I worked Monday & Tuesday last week and was off Wednesday - yesterday. Wednesday we went zip lining, which is a lot of fun. We did some walking and the zipping took a little effort. Lots of tucking... Read more
We had a great weekend. Beautiful weather and the start of Spring Break. Friday was an off day and I just hung out at the house after getting fish from the church. Saturday was the usual laundry/house cleaning. No softball since it's SB. I ... Read more
Year of Maintenance!?
I had joined the "At Goal and Maintaining" team mainly to check out how everyone else is "doing it". Maintenance is hard and I don't get any kind of "competitive rush" from maintaining. I've added a training program for my running that keeps m... Read more
I'm sitting here at my desk wondering why my elbow is sore. Who gets a sore elbow? After flexing my elbow a few times, I realize my right upper arm is a little sore too?! I forgot last night was a frisbee "fest". Yesterday was my cross-train... Read more
Decided to Start Over!
This was a less than stellar weekend for my intermediate 5K training. Saturday was supposed to be a 45 min. "hill" run and by the time I got done with "spring cleaning" (DH's idea to move furniture & clean floors), softball, pinewood derby, cut... Read more
Yesterday my training for my intermediate 5K program was a tempo run. The evening was beautiful, the rain had stopped, it was a little cooler (about 75) and some of the pollen was washed away. The scheduled training was to jog 10, run 10, jog ... Read more
Here we are with less than 2 weeks left in March, so I started thinking about my 2012 goals this morning while getting dressed. DH was already sleeping (2 more days of the overnight shift!), so I couldn't have the TV on in the bedroom and it wa... Read more
So I started an "Improve your 5K" intermediate program 2 weeks ago. I believe the key word in this training is "improve"?! That doesn't seem to be happening with me. I've mentioned before, I'm not sure what I expect, but getting slower isn't ... Read more
