Clean Socks and Fetching Crockpots!
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
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
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....
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
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?"

Restarts and TV and 5Ks, Oh my!
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
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!
Have I told you lately that Yoda is FRAKKING AWESOME??
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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!
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
