Running with my old running buddies

Monday, June 03, 2013      10 comments

Yesterday, I ran with my old running buddies. I haven't run with them in over twelve years. Truthfully, I'm not ready to run with them. I'm much slower than they are and can't even go a fraction of the distance that they do. I showed up at th... Read more

A long overdue blog entry

Monday, May 27, 2013      4 comments

Good golly, so much to say...where to begin? I'll start at the most recent - I ran in a 5K race on Saturday! It was a really big deal and I did great and had a lot of fun! My two oldest children entered in the kids fun run and my eldest w... Read more

Progress and Re-framing

Saturday, April 06, 2013      5 comments

Admittedly, I'm supposed to be working on our taxes right now. This blog entry is providing a much needed procrastination/distraction from them. (grin) I had a great run this morning. On Saturday mornings, I get a full hour to run whilst... Read more

Changing Behavior

Thursday, April 04, 2013      3 comments

First, thank you to my SparkFriends who have checked in on me. I appreciate your thoughts and actions more than you realize. I've had this incredible bout of fatigue. It's bone-sucking, brain-numbing and completely debilitating. I know... Read more

I did it!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      8 comments

It's true: after more than a week away, I FINALLY got back to the gym. I ran 3 miles on the treadmill (5 MPH pace) and worked up a nice sweat. And I felt absolutely great when I was done. On my walk back to my office from the gym, I wa... Read more

I'm still here

Sunday, March 24, 2013      6 comments

We read about it all the time here on SparkPeople - that we're able to fit fitness into our days. Ten minutes here, ten minutes there - it all adds up. And they are words said and written by people who either don't have children and full time ... Read more

What a difference a week makes!

Sunday, March 17, 2013      4 comments

Wow, what a difference a week makes! Last week I was very demoralized because I couldn't control my eating. This week, I added fish to my lunch and dinner and am trying to drink a lot more water. One or two days, I even got close to that 8 cu... Read more

Demoralized

Sunday, March 10, 2013      9 comments

I'm demoralized. I know I'm exercising well. I also know that I eat well 2/3 of the day. This week, though, I've come home at night and I've eaten over 1,000 calories each night. And I just can't seem to stop myself. Sometimes, I'm not even... Read more

My First 5K (in a VERY long time)

Sunday, March 03, 2013      2 comments

A few days ago, I got an email. The email was sent to a running group - one that I used to run with prior to marriage and children. I still subscribe to their news - even though I haven't run with them in over 10 years. Anyway, this email ann... Read more

End of the Spark Streak

Friday, March 01, 2013      3 comments

Well, that didn't last long. I did great yesterday until I started my work out. Seriously, I planned my food for the day. I brought my breakfast, snack, and lunch to work with me. I made dinner for the children and didn't eat any of it. R... Read more

Spark Streaks

Thursday, February 28, 2013      2 comments

In my last blog entry, I talked about how thrilled I was to be finally losing weight. And illness hit and then family travel. Then catching up from being sick and traveling left me with no time to exercise or plan my menus. So....two pounds cre... Read more

Even more to say

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      4 comments

Gosh, it's been way to long since I've posted. I just don't have the time. But I have so much to say! Thankfully, the scale started moving. Finally! I'm so thrilled! I've been working so hard, watching my nutrition and doing my work-outs wit... Read more

So much to say

Saturday, January 26, 2013      4 comments

Gosh, there is so much to say. I almost don't know where to begin. Let's talk about goals this week. My goals are to: 1. Exercise at least 30 minutes, five times per week. I'm on track to meet this goal. 2. 4-8 PM: eat protein... Read more

An emotional day

Wednesday, January 23, 2013      1 comments

Today has been an incredibly emotional day. In addition to it being crazy busy at work, and having a coworker and dear friend fighting for her life going through chemo and radiation while trying to work full time (out of necessity), one of the ... Read more

Martin Luther King Day

Monday, January 21, 2013      2 comments

Today is the day we formally remember Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy. And what a legacy it is. Each year, I take the opportunity to read his story to my children and I'm in awe of what he did. Moreover, he knew he was putting his life on th... Read more
