Should Running and I Break Up?
Tuesday, September 22, 2009      4 comments

I cannot decide how I feel about running. I have never felt so fickle towards anything as I feel towards running. One day I love it, the next day I hate it. I loved it for almost the whole month of August, and then all of a sudden, the pleasure ... Read more

Last week's weight: 187.4 This week's weight: 187.0 Total loss for the month: 2.8 pounds The results are a bit underwhelming, to be sure, but I'll take a loss over a gain any day. Still, I'm only .2 pounds off track of my goal to lose 4... Read more
Missing: Endurance
Tuesday, September 15, 2009      3 comments

One thing I realized yesterday when I attempted to run was that my endurance disappears quickly. I only ran once last week for about 40 minutes, and the week before that I only ran for about 90 minutes total. (And yes, my goal was 120 minutes ... Read more
Owning Up to Mistakes
Monday, September 14, 2009      4 comments

The blog was kind of quiet last week, and to be honest, it is because I didn't want to have to admit to everyone that I was not doing well with my healthy lifestyle. To recap: I ate out 4 times, I only exercised twice, and I basically was apathe... Read more

I hope those of you who had a long weekend enjoyed it. We certainly enjoyed ours. It was nice and relaxing, and even though our viewing of The Time Traveler's Wife was interrupted by technical difficulties that resulted in us missing the last 25... Read more
Yoga Makes Me Ill
Thursday, September 03, 2009      6 comments

Yoga is one of those kinds of exercise that I have always admired when other people do it but have never been brave enough to try it myself. I just told myself there was no way my body was going to be able to contort itself in all the different ... Read more

Without further ado, my goals for September. 1. Run a minimum of 120 minutes a week, with at least one run covering 8 miles. I want to keep increasing my distance, and I hope to be up to 8 miles or more by the end of the month. I think I ca... Read more

First, the bad news... August starting weight: 188.4 August ending weight: 189.8 GAIN of 1.4 pounds Sigh. I'm not really surprised by this, just disappointed in myself once again. I have essentially maintained my weight for the e... Read more
The Happy Plate
Tuesday, August 18, 2009      5 comments

When I was a kid and I finished everything on my plate, my mom or dad would say, "Oh, good job, you made a happy plate!" I always thought it was a fun little saying, so imagine my surprise when I'm in college and jokingly applaud someone for ma... Read more
The Importance of Accountability
Thursday, August 13, 2009      4 comments

This morning I did NOT want to run. When the alarm went off at 7:30, I promptly shut it off and stayed in bed, relishing the soft sheets and cold air. Then hubby, dear sweet hubby, came in and pulled off aforementioned soft sheets and made me ... Read more

I am struggling. I decided to weigh myself Sunday morning, and I was at 1902. In a little over one week I have gained 1.8 pounds, which is all of the weight I lost in July, plus a little extra. My eating has been terrible. I haven't struggl... Read more

Tomorrow's the end of the month. Where in the world did July go?? I'm not gonna lie, I am not looking forward to tomorrow. Wanna know why? End of the month weigh-in. I took a peek at the scale yesterday, and it was not exciting news. I am afraid... Read more
Couch to 5k: Hope for the Novice Runner
Wednesday, July 29, 2009      8 comments

I have had a few people recently ask me what training plan I used to run a 5k, and I realized I hadn't actually devoted a post to this, so here you go. Forgive me if this is duplicate information for some of you, but I wanted to share it in case... Read more
