I have been MIA for...far too long. I've gotten back on the running train. Eating better after booting my ex from my house and making all-around better choices. I want to race, I want to be healthy again.
I've said it before, I know how... Read more
Ragnar was amazing, as I expected it to be! I walked more than I would have liked. Trying to move too much of me is definitely slowing me down.
I also realized (as it got quite hot in upstate this week and I decided to buy a new suit) tha... Read more
Still here and plugging along. Time management is definitely something I need to work on. Can't we just add a couple hours to each day and a day to the weekend? That's not asking too much, right?
This weekend is Ragnar Cape Cod. It's go... Read more
I'm slowly feeling better, though still not 100%. I'm guessing that racing 2 weekends in a row wasn't ideal. I did finally get some cardio in tonight though, and my toning vids for today and yesterday. Planning to get up and run a couple shak... Read more
OOF! I am sore today! I felt pretty good yesterday, so I was a bit surprised at how tight my calves were this morning. I even put on my compression sleeves to try and help. Hoping that and some rolling will do the trick. No time for recovery... Read more
I haven't gone anywhere, I promise. Last week was quite busy and I'm still not feeling 100%. I actually took last week off from working out, but I plan to get right back at it this week. I've also decided not to log my food on the weekends. ... Read more
So, my relay race yesterday was A-Maze-Ing!! As always, I have a great team that runs well together and gets along nicely. We had a few hurdles to overcome, but ran well and still finished in about 12 hours. It was an awfully early start, but... Read more
It is going to be a tough weekend food wise. Already today I can't really track dinner. I went out with friends to a local tapas style restaurant...lots of different things, just a few bites of each; everybody shares. The food is just amazing... Read more
So, I lost a friend today, or at least a person I called a friend. We disagreed on something political, he didn't like the way I shared my opinion and rather rudely called me out, denied me from replying and then messaged my boyfriend to inform... Read more
So, I have goals...I keep track of them and post daily if I made them or not. But, what is my plan? You have to have a plan. My plan, to take control of my life back and be the real me includes putting myself first. Going to bed at a timely ... Read more
Trivia Tuesday! One of my favorite nights of the week...I typically have a pretty laid back evening and then go play trivia with friends at a local eatery after the mini-me is in bed. No drinks this week though, still not feeling 100%. Boo! ... Read more
I wasn't going to post tonight, it's late and my computer is downstairs; but then I realized I could do it from the Sparkpeople app. Yay!! I really like seeing my goals and what I accomplished each day. Helps the motivation.
I got to watch part... Read more
3 weeks I've been at this now. I'm starting to see little changes, it's easier to get my water in, smoother food tracking, higher mileage (20 this past week! YAY!). All little steps that lead to big change.
Today was a picture perfect d... Read more
Good day today! Got to sleep in, enjoy coffee in the sun on my deck, had a lovely run and a yummy dinner. I got in both yesterday's and today's toning vids and tomorrow is long run day. It was really nice to just have a day with no obligation... Read more

So very tired today. An absolutely crazy day at work and a couple hours out with friends makes for one tired Julie. I will do today's arm workout tomorrow, along with tomorrow's core and my run. Plenty of time and not a ton of plans. And bet... Read more
