New shoes--check. New socks--check. New time to get out of the house before it gets too crazy hot--check. Still unable to push through 5.4 miles--check. What is going on? Thing is, my body CAN take this sort of punishment. I've walked ... Read more

One step forward, two steps back

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      2 comments

Also known as self-sabotage. I have done this before. I lose some weight and/or inches, I feel better about myself, I start slacking. I know deep down that I simply cannot do this anymore, yet I still continue this behavior. It's taking me... Read more

Neglecting myself? Never again!

Sunday, July 18, 2010      2 comments

I've been allowed to stray from my goals of fitness and weight loss by sweetened food and ultra-hot temperatures outside. I've been eating too much sugary stuff (calorie-rich and nutrient-poor) and not exercising. Which is bad all around, since ... Read more

Ups and downs in training

Saturday, June 19, 2010      1 comments

Well, it's been three weeks since I last posted. That was to tout my ability to hike seven miles. Well, that same weekend (Memorial Day, for those keeping score), literally when we were leaving to get in the car to drive home, I wrenched my back... Read more

Wow, all that half marathon training was good for something.

Visiting with Jeremy's family over Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday, Jeremy, his brother, and I went for a hike. Did I mention that they live outside of Asheville, NC? Where there are lots of MOUNTAINS? (This is significant...we live in Raleigh, ... Read more

Change in plans

Sunday, May 16, 2010      0 comments

Well, Jeremy and I drove the course for the City of Oaks Half Marathon and decided we didn't want to do it after all. So we switched gears, and decided on another race for the fall--the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon, on October 24. We also decided ... Read more

Starting the next phase of the journey

Saturday, May 08, 2010      0 comments

You know the journey: the one that's a million steps, but it starts with the first? That's where I am. :P Today is nearly three weeks since the Flying Pirate. And I've been a slug for most of that three weeks, and it's aggravating me. My o... Read more

Back to logging my food

Sunday, April 25, 2010      0 comments

Now that the half marathon and vacation are over, it's time to get back to logging my food again. This is the part about weight loss I hate, but I realized at the beginning of the year when I was that I was successful in losing weight when I was... Read more

A bit late in posting my official chip time....

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      4 comments

I finished the Flying Pirate Half Marathon on Sunday and was all set to come back to the computer and post my time, but a friend unexpectedly passed away Sunday afternoon, so I'm just now getting back online to make my post-event post. So, ... Read more

Less than two days till the half!

It's finally here! We're leaving tomorrow for the Outer Banks, and the race is at 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. So excited...even though I'm walking it, it's still 13.1 miles of walking. It's definitely an endurance event! :P I have absolutely... Read more

Personal best!

This was the first time my BF and I got up at a decent hour (i.e. early) to walk...we had planned to do so when we did our dry run, but since that didn't happen, the goal is for the next two weekends to get up early enough in the day--before it ... Read more

Two weeks to go...

I've been having some medical issues the last week and a half that have kept me from walking. First, I changed BP meds, and I had some serious adverse reactions to it...took almost a week to get switched back to my original med, and then I had s... Read more

It seems that my body is conspiring against me. Perhaps it's because I pushed it further than it's been in at least a that I walked three times during the week in addition to the weekend walks. Whatever it doesn't like, it won't tell ... Read more

Yay for Daylight Saving Time!

I'm stupidly excited that DST is finally I have no excuse not to walk after work. :P Went to my doctor this week--she thinks the fatigue I've been having has been due to the BP med I've been on, and not due to what I was eating.... Read more

I can see the finish line!

Well, not quite...but we made it up to 11.04 miles today! We're actually getting a bit worse time-wise...we think it's because we're not getting adequate recovery time in between these long walks. We've been at it pretty much every single weeken... Read more
