Not long ago I blogged about how we are all mammals -- that dogs do what they get rewarded for, and we do too.
Today I'm taking the opposite stance.
Yesterday, my cats caught and killed a chipmunk. They had just eaten their breakfast. ... Read more
So my emotional stress didn't lead me to overeat yesterday, but I was hungry earlier than DH wanted to eat. Tried munching on some cherry tomatoes, which didn't do the trick. Managed to hold out to dinner.
Only problem was that I was still ... Read more
Warning: long rant ahead.
Today started off well. Got up early for my run (ok, woke up way too early actually & couldn't fall back asleep, but whatever), walked the dogs, did some raking (just raked a couple of days ago -- you'd never know ... Read more
So today I ran/walked about 5 1/4 miles. It's the farthest I've ever run. I chose to do it on my treadmill, as I can control how fast I go and actually know how far I've run. I'm sure a Garmin is in my future, but for now, that's what I've got. ... Read more
Tomorrow is my "long" run. Normally I schedule it for Mondays -- I'm not doing super-dooper long runs so they don't have to be on the weekends. In fact, my "long" run is going to be 4 1/2 or 5 miles depending on my mood & how I'm feeling & there... Read more
I am comfortable in my own little world. I mostly am able to maintain my weight. Except that's not really what I want to do. Sure, in the end, I want to be able to maintain my weight, but right now, I know there's more work to do.
"If you d... Read more
I've had a million thoughts & blogs swirling around in my head yesterday, even started one yesterday but then just ran out of time. Well, I suppose if I hadn't watched the previous day's taped Oprah I might've had the time. Anyway.
I spent ... Read more
It's amazing that my tongue isn't black & blue. DH is on a business trip, and as always, he's telling me how much walking he's doing. I know that he really does underestimate how far things are, so this time, when I sort of hinted at that, he ac... Read more
In a world of vanity sizing run amok, running shorts don't lie. I bought a couple of new pairs a month or so ago. I think they were a XL (ok, turns out they were a large, on further inspection).
Now, recently I was somewhere trying on some... Read more
While DH is away on a business trip, I'm playing. Well, sort of. Of course, at the moment DH is in Austin, visiting with friends, eating out, and visiting our old haunts. While I am feeding myself and taking care of the animals.
Today I de... Read more
That is my upcoming race, in about a month. I figure I'd throw the fundraising page out there since they so kindly provide you with one:
If I've donated to you, ABSOLUTE... Read more
. . . but here goes.
My buddy Kate has her blogs about running -- which, come to think of it, so does my buddy Donna. I, apparently, now have my blogs about the search for the perfect swimsuit. I'm sure it's one most women can relate to.

Yup, I have one. I've read many articles on running injuries, and this one doesn't seem to come, so I can't figure it out and therefore can't figure out what to do. And yes, I don't actually have a doctor here yet. I'm not real big on doctors, b... Read more
That was my comment today on somebody's blog. Our lives aren't perfect. Sometimes things just don't go according to plan. It's up to us how we react to what life throws at us.
How many times after eating something that wasn't so healthy hav... Read more
