I'll let you in on a little secret. I have a time machine. It's called healthy eating and exercise. My 31st birthday is coming up next month, and while I am excited for a day with my family and an excuse to buy myself new workout clothes and s... Read more

Anyone who reads my blogs will know that my first 10-mile run was not the best experience. Nor was my first run in snow/ice/wind. Both runs had my rethinking my plan to run a half marathon in the spring, and I was even questioning whether I l... Read more

I love exercise. It is one of my favorite things, which is probably why I now feel that I MUST become a trainer. I love pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. Yesterday was definitely one of those days. I started out with Day 2 of the BodyRock... Read more

My first winter running outside has been a mild one so far. For a state that usually has snow by Halloween, we’ve been having some strange weather this year. Mild, rainy November led to a mild, almost warm December and the concern of not having ... Read more

So, I went a little over my calories yesterday. My husband's grandma sends us a yummy box of Omaha Steaks products every year for Christmas, and we have an indulgent, wonderful dinner. I've been planning for this dinner this year, and it's my ... Read more

My weight loss has been stalled. I bounce up and down with the same 5 lbs. I knew I needed to make changes, but I also was faced with "show week" - the last week before a play goes up - and that means major stress, lots of extras added into my s... Read more
Not Quite Broken

Yesterday I ran my first 10 mile run. It was raining, but I tried to ignore the squishy shoes. I did fine until around mile 7. I started to hurt in my knees, hips, back - everywhere really, and no matter what I tried to do to get my mind off the... Read more

November is over, and it is the end of the Stevia Challenge. This last week and a half has been a total bomb. Vacation threw me off of all of my plans. I went to bed late and slept too late (paying for that now that school is back). I started ni... Read more

The holidays are here. I've already started thinking about Christmas and doing some shopping, but I didn't really feel in the holiday spirit until today. We finally had our first snow storm of the year. Normally, we have snow by Halloween, which... Read more

Still doing pretty well. I've had a few minor slips, but I've been eating clean about 85% of the time, and that is a major improvement. Working out has been great. I already wrote about my week, so I won't repeat myself here, but I had some grea... Read more
