First off, I'm contemplating a race this Sunday. I'm only contemplating right now because: 1. TOM. Actually, it's started a bit early, which makes me lean towards doing it because it shouldn't be bad by Sunday. Thankfully mine don't last lo... Read more
A healthy lifestyle = freedom
Thursday, June 09, 2011      9 comments

How often have you embarked on a healthy lifestyle only to regret everything you couldn't have? Because let's face it, even tho I'm a firm believer in everything in moderation, I also realize that I'm just never going to be able to eat the way I... Read more
Mostly venting & grocery store find

I'll start with the GSF: amy's now has light & lean frozen dinners! I never eat frozen dinners any more, even amy's, but you know I had to buy a couple. My store had a couple of mexican & one pasta dinner. The sodium was below 600 mg, so not gre... Read more

He calls it high maintenance . . .
Tuesday, June 07, 2011      4 comments

. . . I call it maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I'm at the airport, waiting for our flight home. I only ate breakfast out once the entire time we were away - this morning. I brought all my breakfasts with me. Nothing can wreck your waistli... Read more
Hoping calorie cycling works!
Saturday, June 04, 2011      8 comments

So I feel I've been eating pretty healthy, but yesterday, despite my best efforts, kind of went overboard. We went to a buffet for lunch: I heaped my plate with a salad of romaine, red onions, cucumbers & chickpeas. Added some steamed broccoli &... Read more
How long is your longest run for HM?
Friday, June 03, 2011      9 comments

So I read the report I mentioned in yesterday's blog, 15 HM mistakes to avoid. And the author suggests that your longest run shouldn't be longer than 10 miles - so you have so e excitement to look forward to. Galloway is of the camp that yo... Read more
Only half the story

Yup, now I've gone & done it. Longest race to date is 10k, no idea whether I'll love or hate a HM & I'm signed up for 2 - signed up for the Livestrong Austin HM this morning & got the discounted price for being one of the first 1000 people to si... Read more
You don't know how far you can go unless you run
Wednesday, June 01, 2011      8 comments

That's a line from the movie secretariat which immediately stuck in my head. Of course it applies to most anything in life, not just running - like, oh, say, living a healthy lifestyle. As frustrating as my plateau has been, I still often c... Read more
Sometimes you just need some NSVs
Sunday, May 29, 2011      10 comments

& some ramblings. So my NSVs (non-scale victories) this week: 1. Altho I haven't been able to hit my core mission as much as I wanted to, due to running around for/with the cats, today my water belt sat below my waist - AND stayed ther... Read more
How do you PB2?
Saturday, May 28, 2011      8 comments

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of PB2. then again if you're not a PB addict and/foodie like me, maybe you haven't. Essentially it's powdered peanut butter that you reconstitute with water - with almost no fat. ... Read more
I can't get no satisfaction
Friday, May 27, 2011      8 comments

Ok, so yesterday I didn't plan out my meals and guess what? Yeah, I didn't eat the greatest. Not horrible, and probably subconsciously rebelling cause the scale didn't tell me what I wanted to hear - even tho it wan't that bad. I had celery... Read more
Kirstie proves 60 IS the new 40!
Thursday, May 26, 2011      11 comments

Seriously, if you watch DWTS (and if you don't know that acronym you don't), Kirstie Alley was amazing. I don't really think she deserved to win, but I wanted her too anyway. Ok, ok, I really wanted Ralph Macchio to win, ya got me. She got ... Read more
Lovely day for an LSR & Oops! She did it again
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      10 comments

No, no more dresses. Well, not today, anyway. And no new chocolates - yet. Today was spring. Yup, pretty much our one day of spring. Weather-wise the winter was super crappy & spring has followed in its footsteps - altho you really can't co... Read more
A kitchen mishap & a surprisingly good salad
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      8 comments

If you haven't had your daily chuckle yet today, I am happy to provide it. This morning I was making some raw cookies (not raw dough, raw as in a raw diet - mostly nuts - good for you in moderation). I use sea salt in my kitchen, simp... Read more
