I can run a lot farther than I think I can
Thursday, May 31, 2012      4 comments

If I could just get a personal trainer to chase after me in a 5k, I think I could run it. School ended last week for most of our counties, and man, is it showing at the gym. Just about everyone has vanished from our classes... the two I ma... Read more
I just slew the "too full" monster
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      4 comments

When I get ahold of something I truly enjoy, it's not unusual for me to eat until I'm stuffed silly... especially if I have room in my calorie range for it. Thanks to a lack of my usual foods in the house, I didn't have much to eat before dinner... Read more
Beating the soda monster 14 day challenge... join me!
Tuesday, May 29, 2012      6 comments

In an attempt to get control of my biggest weakness, I am doing something I NEVER do. I'm going on a diet. It's a SODA diet. See, my biggest problem these days is soda. I'd gotten them down to one per day, but recently I haven'... Read more
So I failed Memorial Day weekend.
Monday, May 28, 2012      6 comments

Aside from my small victory yesterday, I've totally failed at this weekend. I spent the ENTIRE time at the computer (seriously, enough hours that I'm STIFF and sore from it) and got almost no exercise. I did walk a little yesterday, and there w... Read more
But I need a workout buddy!
Sunday, May 27, 2012      5 comments

You know, I hear this a lot. I used to be the queen of this. I wanted to work out, and I knew I always do better with a friend. A few years back, I did kickboxing for a year, and loved it... I had a friend talk me into it, and we kept each othe... Read more
Summer has begun!
Friday, May 25, 2012      1 comments

Today was the first day of summer; okay, maybe not the official season, but the school's summer vacation. My daughter's already gotten her first sunburn, because her father forgot to put sunblock on her before she went out to play in the pool. A... Read more
So very, tired, but a great day
Thursday, May 24, 2012      2 comments

I'm heading to bed an hour before my husband tonight, in an attempt to get some actual sleep. I'm so worn out today I've been in a haze. Even so, it's been good. I worked my butt off in the gym this morning, although I think I overtraine... Read more
New toy! And it makes NEAT THINGS!
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      4 comments

I got my spiral slicer in the mail today. And it's SO much fun. I made zucchini spagetti, and it was a hit. I loved it, and my 6 year old thought it was the coolest thing ever. Tomorrow, I'm slicing her some apples with it. I'm also goin... Read more
Couch to 5k... day one!
Tuesday, May 22, 2012      14 comments

So last night, I finally got to run in my new shoes. I loaded my NHS Choices Couch to 5k podcast (while forgetting how to use my pedometer app. Sigh.) and went out for a run at 10:30 last night. It felt SO good. It's amazing the differen... Read more
High and Happy
Monday, May 21, 2012      3 comments

I'm rolling with this weird high today. It's weird because I'm seriously exhausted. I woke up way too early, and slept very poorly last night, and was up a lot. Might have gotten 5 hours of sleep, total (and not all at once.) I have so much... Read more
So worn out
Saturday, May 19, 2012      6 comments

Coming down with a bit of a head cold; I think that's where my motivation was yesterday. I'm drinking some chamomile tea right now before bed. I'm also enjoying a great visit from my mom... she drives me a bit crazy, because she talks nonstop, a... Read more
Not a good fitness week.
Friday, May 18, 2012      7 comments

I'm trying to convince myself to get off my butt and get moving. It's been a bad week for fitness; Wednesday, I missed the most intense workout of the week, and my biggest calorie burner. (Laundry day.) Today, I was planning on getting on... Read more
New Shoes!
Thursday, May 17, 2012      7 comments

I'm so thrilled... my paycheck FINALLY came, so I was able to head to the running store and get my specially fitted shoes! I haven't been able to run in them yet, I'm still breaking them in, but I can't wait. I also picked up a new Sweaty... Read more
No gym... ick. BUT!
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      6 comments

Okay, so today I didn't go to the gym. I had a good excuse, though... I had no more workout pants that didn't smell like pee! (Light bladder leakage hell. Try HEAVY bladder leakage.) So, I skipped the gym in favor of laundry. This wound u... Read more
Teaching my kids to be healthy
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      6 comments

This is a discussion that's near and dear to my heart. For those of you who don't know, I have two girls, 4 and 6. I love them more than life itself, and they're why I'm here at all. I want them to have a healthy example. My heart breaks every t... Read more
