Private yoga...and it wasn't awkward!
I went to yoga tonight (my apartment complex has been having free weekly yoga sessions) and nooooobody else was there. It was just me and the instructor. I was afraid it was going to be super awkward as just a one-on-one situation, but it was a... Read more
An active holiday weekend!
You know, it occurs to me that I didn't take a single rest day this weekend, and I had sort of thought I would. It just didn't happen because I kept wanting to be active. :)
First, there was the 10k Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. Then I sugge... Read more
Turkey Trot Results!!
I didn't get a chance to check my email over the holiday until just now, but apparently my race results were emailed to me an hour and a half after I finished the race. (Somebody's organized and/or super automated!)
"For y... Read more
Just got back from my first ever 10k and Turkey Trot!! Had a fabulous time. The husband near about died (he's not so used to running as me) but I finished in about 52-ish minutes, I think, and I wasn't pushing much. So that's pretty good!

Stuffing is for poultry, not people!
That's going to be my mantra tomorrow.
I have problems with my eyes being bigger than my stomach, and I don't want to eat until I hurt like I've done in the past at family gatherings or buffet-style meals. I go in telling myself I'll just ... Read more
You get out what you put in
The Zumba gods must have smiled upon me last night to make up for the totally awkward Zumba sesssion I had last week - my two buddies BOTH showed up, and we had a really great time! Both of them were high energy, particularly the one who bailed ... Read more
Creepy Cracker Jacks
Do we REALLY need caffeinated Cracker Jacks?
I don't eat Cracker Jacks anyway, because they're junk and they've neve... Read more
I am super excited about my new running stuff!
It's getting colder these days, and it's REALLY cold in the mornings before work - and sometimes I go running before work! I've only got one really warm jacket/fleece-type thing and it has no p... Read more
The most awkward Zumba "class" I've ever done
I "teach" a Zumba "class" twice a week in the community building of my apartment complex. It's really more of a Zumba club. I'm not certified or anything, and it's not a paid gig - we just get together to work out. There's only 3 other women who... Read more
Look at me, not pushing through pain to (over)exercise !
Yesterday, I went running before work, so I got in lots of good cardio first thing. But of course, I can't stand sitting still for the rest of the day any more, so I took my usual morning walking break, took another walk on my lunch break...and ... Read more
Kicking technology's wimpy butt
For the second time now in the last couple weeks, I've gone running before work when the temperature was around 28 degrees. It's cold and uncomfortable and my fingers and feet go a little numb for a while (I definitely need some better gloves fo... Read more
Another of my favorite non-scale victories
Maybe it's the Thanksgiving spirit, but I'm feeling especially celebratory lately, I guess, because here's another NSV that I love!
Background: My husband and I moved to WV 4 years ago. Shortly after moving in, while I was still at my peak ... Read more
Thisclose to not Zumba-ing tonight...
But I did it anyway!
Seriously, I was dressed in my workout gear. I was at the community building. I had the furniture already moved. I had the pump-up music going. I knew nobody was coming, and I'd already done 30 minutes on the elliptical... Read more
I don't waste food.
It's partly out of an environmental/conservation of resources sort of standpoint. I print double-sided in draft mode. I bring home cardboard from work to recycle. I write grocery lists on the backs of old receipts or oth... Read more
Halving it so I can have it! :)
I love cooking and baking and playing with new recipes. I don't create recipes or anything, but I love trying oddball-sounding things like chocolate beet cake or plantain lasagna or chocolate chip cookie pie with bean puree instead of flour...an... Read more
