A doggone good day

Tuesday, July 20, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday was a pretty doggone good day. I finished a lot of projects at work and fixed a couple of particularly perplexing problems. After work, I headed to the gym for a run/walk. My pace wasn't quite as good as it was on Saturday, but I ran/w... Read more

Grr! Cranky animal with a sore paw

Sunday, July 18, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday, I stopped at Running Fit, the store where I bought my Sauconys back in January. I don't think I've run anywehere close to even 100 miles in them, so I'm not in the market for new shoes. Plus, they are generally really great. The arch ... Read more

Delayed, derailed, determined, delivered!

Friday, July 16, 2010      3 comments

At the beginning of the week, I blogged about having a renewed sense of purpose about my diet and training and that I was entering a four week reset period. Some of the features of this period would be pre-conditioning for half-marathon run/walk... Read more

Where's my Wite-out?

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      3 comments

Ahoy mateys, there be sarcasm ahead... Boy, I sure am glad I wrote my new half-marathon training plan into my calendar in red ink! Because it's so clearly do-able for me at this point. Except it's not. Not right at this moment, anyway.... Read more

Yesterday was the last day of the worst of my life

Monday, July 12, 2010      6 comments

I have decreed it and it will be so. I've had enough of all that nonsense. I'm done allowing myself to slack off on diet and exercise. There will be no more of this "I don't really have time to strength train, so I'll just go home after my ... Read more

So...

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      0 comments

It's been kind of a busy and hectic summer so far. Work has got me really bogged down and social activities have got me running all over the place and not exactly taking good care of myself. Add to that a general lack of motivation, and it leads... Read more

Clearing the cobwebs

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      2 comments

I don't know what the heck has been up with me lately. Sure, I've been busy, but I feel like that has distracted me from my goals and I don't like it. I ran last Monday. It was a good run. I feel like I finally conquered week four on C25K. That'... Read more

Epilogue to my "Inspiration" post

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      4 comments

In my last post, I mentioned the incredible experience I had with Relay for Life on Saturday and Sunday. Well, as of this morning, Relay for Life of Canton, MI has raised over $248, 062 for the American Cancer Society! I am so proud of my town! ... Read more

Mmmm... brunch!

Monday, May 17, 2010      4 comments

I forgot to mention in yesterday's epic weekend blog post that I also had a fabulous brunch on Saturday that made me the envy of all I described it to. In fact, it was so good on Saturday, I made pretty much the same dish on Sunday, too! It was ... Read more

Inspiration from all sides

Sunday, May 16, 2010      4 comments

Friday was the end of a week that started out not-so-great and ended up pretty bad. I had an upset stomach on Thursday and stayed home from work. It was pouring rain throughout the night and morning, and I woke the second time to the sound of dr... Read more

Sleep, perchance to dream... of more sleep

Tuesday, May 11, 2010      2 comments

I don't usually post two blog posts in one day, but one of this week's action steps is really worrying me. It says "get regular sleep this week, 8 hours per night and get up without snooze." I know all the benefits of a good night's sleep. I kno... Read more

Dullsville

Tuesday, May 11, 2010      2 comments

I'm having a harder time recovering from my weekend at Mom and Dad's house than I thought I would. Between the horribly uncomfortable bed and the orgy of bake sale goodies, I'm achy, tired and draggy. The rainy, cold weather isn't really helping... Read more

Home again, home again, jiggety jig!

Monday, May 10, 2010      2 comments

I don't suppose it's a coincidence that the line immediately preceding that one ends "fat pig." Hmmm. I spent the weekend up at my parents' house for Mother's Day and as is so often the case, I didn't stick to a single good habit while I wa... Read more

C25K - better!

Thursday, May 06, 2010      4 comments

I tried week four's program again last night. This time I walked five minutes before ever starting the podcast. Kind of pre-warm-up warm-up! Then I stretched a lot more thoroughly than I usually do. I printed some stretching exercises from the C... Read more

Yoda was wrong- sometimes "try" is a perfectly valid choice

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      4 comments

Despite my inability to finish full week 3 intervals on my first outdoor run, I decided to move on to week 4, anyway. The idea of running for five minutes straight is kind of daunting, but here's the thing: that old cliche of "you'll never know ... Read more
