Clean Socks and Fetching Crockpots!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      12 comments

Yoda is a RockStar. Seriously. Have I mentioned that lately? If I haven't, know that he is and that when I'm training with him, I feel like I can do anything. Sure, sometimes he makes me cry but that's part of the fun! Anyway, original... Read more

My 7th 5K

Monday, September 17, 2012      9 comments

Wind is blowing through your hair as you hit your stride. Your legs feel great and you feel like you're free and can run forever. You smile as you pass each mile marker until you hit the end of the 5K and yet you still feel as if you could run s... Read more

Friends, The Past, and the Start of My Weight Issues

Friday, September 14, 2012      7 comments

Sometimes I look at my life and I think "What a loser". If life right now were high school, I'd identify with the misfits - the people who get made fun of and who eat lunch alone. I don't know how many of you watch Glee, but this is what go... Read more

Yoda Read Yesterday's Blog....

Thursday, September 13, 2012      12 comments

Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to tell my new goals to Yoda. Things got crazy busy at work and I didn't have time to type them up, so at the last minute I printed off my blog so that he could read the last part with my goals. On the... Read more

I'm Joining the Rebel Alliance

Wednesday, September 12, 2012      13 comments

Why haven't you been here since last Thursday?" There I was, minding my own business, and here comes Yoda with accusations of me not working out. Of course, his accusations were right. "How about we pretend that you didn't notice?" ... Read more

Restarts and TV and 5Ks, Oh my!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012      10 comments

So much for starting up again yesterday! I actually don't feel badly about putting it off for another day. My dad called just as I was leaving work and needed help painting so I changed into painting clothes instead of workout clothes and I... Read more

Restart.....Again....

Monday, September 10, 2012      8 comments

Well, this past week wasn't great. It was fine until Thursday. It wasn't perfect and I was struggling, but I was getting by. Then on Thursday morning I met with Yoda. I spent the whole training hour at his desk crying. Yup. I was that ... Read more

Yoda Challenges Me - And I Welcome That!

Friday, August 31, 2012      7 comments

Have I told you lately that Yoda is FRAKKING AWESOME?? Seriously. I love training with him. If I could afford it, I would do it every day. Somehow he makes working out fun and challenging and easy and tough and exciting and sweaty an... Read more

Updates, Zumba, and Things That Happened Two Weeks Ago

Thursday, August 30, 2012      12 comments

Zumba last night was FANTABULOUS. Seriously. I felt like I was dragging a bit when it started but instead of being grumpy about it, I kicked it up a notch. I brought my legs higher and reached my arms further. I took bigger steps and I jumped wi... Read more

Self-Talks, Motivation, and Being the Weird Girl at the Gym

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      14 comments

I sat around my apartment after work yesterday having "the talk" with myself. You know the one - "Self, it's time to go to the gym!" "Ugh. Not again. Didn't I just do that yesterday?" "We do it EVERY day." "Well, let's not d... Read more

Me + Smile = Good

Tuesday, August 28, 2012      11 comments

I'm not going to pretend that things are great when I am, in fact, struggling. That being said, Yoda can still make me laugh. No matter how upset I am or what's bothering me, that guy seems to always know just what to say to get me out of m... Read more

Habits

Monday, August 27, 2012      8 comments

I've typed, deleted, re-typed, deleted, typed again, and deleted different blogs. It's hard to write when I'm feeling so emotional about things. I try to stay positive, but sometimes that's a lot harder than it looks. So, I'm going to ... Read more

Struggles

Friday, August 24, 2012      17 comments

First of all, thank you for all the birthday wishes. I haven't had a chance to read them all yet, but I will. Also, for those of you who have been worried about me and checked on me, I also thank you. This is going to be one of my most cryp... Read more

Gym Fail!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012      11 comments

More accurately, it was a Me Fail! I can't blame the gym. I planned on going to Zumba last night and then doing my weights workout. Didn't happen. When I got to Zumba, I had just eaten dinner so I was feeling kinda bloated and yuc... Read more

5K Fail, but Weekend Win!

Monday, August 13, 2012      13 comments

My 5K wasn't that great. I thought I'd pick up some time, but I really didn't. I think it's because I didn't sleep very well or eat very well before, but I dunno. I'm running another one in 3 weeks and another one 2 weeks after that. Hopefully m... Read more
