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
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
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
I signed up for this but haven't actually downloaded it yet: www.shapeshifterbodyrede sign.com/launchpad_joel/ . It's a bodyweight program - as in ST that doesn't require anything other than your own weight. Plus supposedly som... Read more
. . . 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
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
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
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
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
& 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
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.

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
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
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
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
