I ran my first full marathon last October. It was definitely a tough one! I wasn't sure if I wanted to run another one. Then I heard how great the Ogden full marathon was and finally got the courage to sign up. I have been training for the l... Read more

Here I am in the middle of marathon training, running the winter race circuit and working on intuitive eating and I get quite a shock. The hubby and I decided we wanted to try for a third child back in 2012 when my baby turned 2. I went off Mi... Read more

I finished the book on Intuitive Eating by Tribole and Resch. I believe it has the information that I have been looking for to deal with my eating issues. I thought I would just have to accept that eating would always be a struggle for me, but... Read more

I have been struggling now for the past 3 years to get things under control with my health. I lost over 50 pounds using the Sparkpeople program back in 2011-2012. I don't know if I ever got the weight maintenance thing figured out after that. ... Read more

I ran my first marathon on October 10th this year. I used to say I would never run one of those. I started running half marathons with my first in 2013. Before that I was only running 5K's and 10K's. I really became a runner back in 2010 aft... Read more

I wore a new shirt today and I think it was just the fun colors or the cut that made me feel like I look good today. I haven't felt that way in several months. I really have not been loving how my body looks. I work so hard. I put in so man... Read more

I know, I never blog anymore. I want to, but I feel like I'm always busy between working my part-time lab job, managing a household and taking care of a husband and kids. Back in 2011 I got serious about using the tools on Sparkpeople. I was ... Read more

Half Marathon #2, kind of dissapointing...
Thursday, July 24, 2014      2 comments

If I could sum up this race it would be, "I came, I ran, I survived." My first half marathon exactly one year ago was finished in 1:47. I was proud of my time even though I didn't place. That course was almost all downhill though. This cours... Read more
