Life is a marathon
This was said to me today during a discussion on running/working out. We also discussed that the final part of a race is the most difficult part. The last .2 of a marathon or .1 of a 5K. So true.
Every day, every mile, we need to give ou... Read more

Yay for Presidents!
Today was a great day off! I got in a run this morning, as well as my toning video for the 28 day bootcamp. Then I got my sister's dogs so that she could go have a baby! Yay!! (Still waiting as of 10pm BTW). Had a great day with a very good... Read more
Saturday: Goals mostly met. I ended up cutting my run a little short (did 6.5 miles instead of 8) because I was running late to help a friend move. But...I certainly got in a workout doing that. I also got a lot of stuff done at home and a fe... Read more
Long weekend, here I come!
This week has felt so long. It's been awhile since I've worked a full week, let alone 2. :) I'm not complaining, but it seems to have taken a lot out of me. Planning to be in bed by 10 tonight, then a long run on the treadmill tomorrow and h... Read more
2000+ boxes of Girl Scout Cookies
That's what my troop of 16 Daisies sold. And what we had to pick up today. And take into the church where we meet. And sort. And carry back out to cars. I figure I spent a solid 30-45 minutes just moving boxes. Yay for impromptu cardio!!

Tonight I came home and spent a little of ... Read more

I Have GOT to start getting to bed earlier. I wanted to be in bed by 10 tonight and it just didn't happen...that's my goal for now, until I am doing it consistently again. Sleep is so important and I've been short for a couple weeks now. Not ... Read more
Busy weekend, new week
Alexis had another competition this weekend, this one was 2 hours away though; so it took most of the day to get there, compete and get home. On the plus side, I did my planned run, 70 minutes on the treadmill. I won't say I enjoy using the ma... Read more
I'm glad it's Friday. I haven't worked a full week in awhile and while it wasn't very stressful, it still took a lot out of me physically. I ended up not doing my second round of cardio tonight, but I did complete my toning video for bootcamp ... Read more
Bustin' it out
Today was a great cardio day. I started with a 30 minute run... 20 minutes of intervals (8.5-6.5 minutes/mile), 1 mile of jog (10 m/m) and then a 5 minute cooldown walk (15 m/m). It felt awesome to get some sprints in and I'm finally feeling l... Read more

Probably no need to blog tonight. I got in my workouts (plus 10 minutes), ate well today and got in all my water. I got some errands run and some chores done at home. Mostly, I just want to post my goals for tomorrow so that I'm accountable.

After barely sleeping last night, I still managed to get up and get in a 30 minute run this morning. I had a pretty good day at school. I like the teachers that I get to work with and we get along well. I just need to buy myself a box of K-cu... Read more
