I ran a marathon!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015      5 comments

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'm not exactly where I want to be in the weight/size category but I am strong!

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'm still addicted to racing!

Sunday, June 14, 2015      1 comments

Last month I survived my 5th half marathon. It wasn't my best run but it's still good to look back and say that I survived. (See previous blog.) I have awful races and awesome races and I keep wanting to compete. I think I just like the envir... Read more

Half Marathon #5

Sunday, May 17, 2015      3 comments

Last month I ran half marathon #4 and loved the race. The weather was gorgeous and it was a flat course with the last two miles in the Lagoon amusement park here in Utah. I finished in 1:49 and was fairly happy with that time. I just ran the ... 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

I'm lacing up my running shoes again...

Monday, August 11, 2014      4 comments

I just signed up for my third half marathon. A couple years ago I never thought I could run that distance but I really wanted to. I did my first half marathon last year. I did my second one exactly a year later. I'm feeling so motivated that... 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

Decisions... I wish I could make up my mind!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014      4 comments

I have had a lot of struggles lately. I have even felt some depression creeping in. I'm struggling to find some hope and just hold onto it. I'm lucky my DH puts up with me when I'm such a crazy hormonal mess. The biggest thing really draggin... Read more

What a frustrating year it has been for me!

Wednesday, December 18, 2013      4 comments

I haven't posted a blog on here in a while. I think it's because I have been down a lot and didn't want to drag anyone down with me. I know there have been lots of positive things to reflect on this year. I know I am very blessed for my life ... Read more

I literally just signed up for my very first half marathon. I'm so excited and scared! I only have a month to train. I have already researched some training plans though I and I think I can do this. I think I will tame the competitive beast... Read more

Weekend recap

Monday, June 03, 2013      1 comments

I have been so weak with my eating on weekends and I want to get better! I'm afraid I failed myself again this weekend. I'm starting to develop some bad eating habits that are so hard to break. Since I started this journey, I have always had ... Read more

Free from the scale

Thursday, May 16, 2013      4 comments

I used to be a scale addict. I would weigh myself first thing every single morning. It was usually exciting though. This was back when I was slowly and steadily losing at least 0.5 pounds a week or more. A year ago I ran straight into a plat... Read more

It's a new month...

Thursday, May 02, 2013      2 comments

A new month means it's time to stop slacking and get things right. I'm determined to pick myself up and fight for this healthy lifestyle that I have been working so hard on. Exercise is not a problem at all, unless I'm exercising too much. So... Read more
