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

Mother's Day Indulgence

Monday, May 14, 2012      1 comments

So this weekend was a major splurge. I tracked my food, at least the entrees and such, but I fell far short of being accurate. I don't know how much I actually ate Sunday, but it was a lot. ;) I don't mind at all. Mother's Day is a special day f... Read more

Welcome our newest family member!

Sunday, May 13, 2012      15 comments

Ever since Mozart died, there's been this fuzzy, kitty-shaped hole in our lives. I know it doesn't seem like it's been very long, but I've had several kitties in my life all the time for the last 15 years. We have Noodles, my other baby ... Read more

Eating out is what does me in!

Friday, May 11, 2012      5 comments

So I've figured out what my biggest saboteur is. Eating out! Now this will come as no surprise to anyone, of course; American restaurants are notorious for enormous portions. Today we went to Texas Cattle Company, and I got o... Read more

Starving today

Thursday, May 10, 2012      5 comments

Man, my hunger is off the CHAIN today. I've been snacking all day. Fortunately, I've had cravings for very healthy things (I had a salad that was off the CHAIN good, and I ate it like it was the last food on earth.) I haven't done anything... Read more
