The real reason I went out on Friday
Okay, so on Wednesday night last week, I decided to skip the gym and go shopping instead. I wanted to try on new fall clothes and look at boots. I was also curious about something, because not one, but two different women's magazines stated that... Read more
Much too much
This weekend could be considered a weight loss fail of monumental proportions, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I had a great weekend.
On Friday, I found out that a band I like was playing a "Halfway to St. Pat's" party at a l... Read more
This week has not been particularly good. It's certainly been productive, work-wise, but I've just been feeling so ridiculously blah this week.
On Tuesday, I almost had som... Read more
Oops! Yay! Ouch!
Sometimes it seems like my whole life is just one long string of exclamations.
So, you know how the WTF challenge entry card has a couple of lines about "I will" and "I will not?" Yesterday, I posted that between that moment and Su... Read more
I may be slow, but I get there!
So, checking the results of yesterday's 5K, they clocked me at 41:59 and a 13:33 mile. The next person to cross the finish line was the first place finisher in the women's 65-69 group. So I beat a first place finisher, that's something, right? ... Read more
My head is swelling- but my body is shrinking, so that's okay
I have received an astounding number of compliments this week. First and foremost, I've gotten an unbelievable lift from Spark teammates and friends through blog comments, wall posts and fun goodies. I think it probably goes without saying that ... Read more
ABC's of Jenna
I've seen this in a couple of places, most recently FOXXYROXXYD's blog. Posting a meme just seems like a very "Friday blog post" thing to do.
A - Age: 39 (I initially wrote 40. Weird.)
B - Bed size: Queen
C - Chore you hate: All of the... Read more
This ended up in a totally different place than I'd planned
I don't know if it came across in yesterday's blog post, but I really have an outstanding relationship with my parents. I was beyond lucky to be born to those two and I know it. My parents- indeed, my whole family- have always been supportive of... Read more
Productive (with a side of "My parents are the good kind of crazy")
I think this was the best long weekend I've had since... well, since ever. It was certainly the best Labor Day weekend I've had. I spent the weekend at my parents' house in Northern Michigan. They actually live 250 miles from my house, so I only... Read more
Are Wii having fun yet?
So, last night I didn't get home until close to dusk. I had been keeping an eye on the temperature on that loooong drive home and resolved that if it dropped to 85F or below, I would head to the park. Naturally, it did drop just as I got home, b... Read more
So, this is pretty frustrating. It's a run day. It's 93F out right now. My community center is closed this week for their annual maintenance shutdown. (Confidential to KONKLES, AD and SD: the Summit in Canton, it's weird that Canton and Livonia ... Read more
Turning Fall into a Leap
I've been doing a lot of thinking about motivation and future plans, as well as how far I've come so far. Lately, I seem to be sticking to my goals more consistently and it's paying off. I can see that and feel it, too. I'm more fit, more confid... Read more
I need to run off for golf, but I need to vent. There's a poster in the Princess Half thread on the DIS boards who is absolutely infuriating. A couple of weeks ago, she pissed off a lot of people by saying that the advice an experience running c... Read more
