10 things I learned from my first HM

Wednesday, December 07, 2011      18 comments

1. Consistency is key Not to long ago I read that there's some formula you multiply your weekly mileage by to see where you'll hit the wall - and that had me worried, because I don't think I ever ran more than 20 miles, and many weeks, whil... Read more

Kara Goucher said I should . . .

Fair warning: if describing food makes you wan't to eat, you might want to skip this blog. My husband & I always seem at odds when it comes to food in Vegas. He wants cheap eats - not so easy to find anymore, but not impossible. I want good... Read more

A great time at HM, but so frickin cold!

Monday, December 05, 2011      18 comments

I slept fine sat night, the night before the big race - other than waking up at 4 am, but that isn't really terribly unusual for me these days. I don't get nervous. I know there are many, many things that can go wrong - but I've done my training... Read more

Another day @ expo & met more spark buddies

Saturday, December 03, 2011      9 comments

Last night we went out to dinner with NATPLUMMER & her husband - I think we were all a bit tired, they with their long drive & us with the jet lag & running around. NATPLUMMER is so sweet tho - she brought me peanut butter chocolate brownies bec... Read more

RnR Las Vegas expo experience

Friday, December 02, 2011      9 comments

First, let me say what a crazy place Vegas can be. NOT a good town if you don't like crowds, altho DH doesn't but he still limes it. He went off to gamble yesterday, I was going to watch a movie, do some shopping, then we'd meet up at todai, a s... Read more

Why do we do this to ourselves?

Thursday, December 01, 2011      6 comments

Run, that is. Because it seems inevitable that at some point you WILL end up injured, no matter how careful you are. My knee started to bother me Tuesday - really don't know just started out of the blue. It's not actually painful, bu... Read more

My body gallery

Tuesday, November 29, 2011      10 comments

Have you heard of this? Way cool! You plug in your height & weight & then it shows you photos of women the same height & weight. I know yesterday's blog was semi-Debbie-downer - I blame it on he gray days... Read more

Hard at first, easier at end (photos)

Monday, November 28, 2011      5 comments

What do I see when I look at this photo? A person that's still stuck. She looks good, but of course I narrow in on the flaws. This is me at the wedding: And with DH: ... Read more

Habits are so easy to form

Sunday, November 27, 2011      6 comments

Both good - and bad. It has quickly become my habit to have pancakes for breakfast - or lunch, even, if I'm running later in the day - on long run days. I top them with PB2 & use slept flour, so they're at least semi-healthy. But my long run doe... Read more

Still amazes me how the scale can change feelings

Friday, November 25, 2011      11 comments

I feel like I'm in a really good place with food. I'm happy with the choices I've made at the wedding & yesterday. What I'm not happy with is the results. Which is ironic, because my size six jeans still fit. My clothes aren't fitting snug... Read more

Remember you're worth it

Thursday, November 24, 2011      8 comments

Remember I shared with you recently that it's not about what you deserve, but about what you're worth? It's so easy to tell yourself that you deserve to eat whatever you want today. You deserve to take the day off & relax. But what are... Read more

A good time was had by most

Sunday, November 20, 2011      9 comments

Friday we drove down to stay with my husband's cousin & his family. We meant to take them out for sushi, and we did eat sushi, only they paid for it. Saturday we got together with his uncle & aunt briefly. Then we took the cousins out for lunch.... Read more

Thru rain, thru thunder, thru snow . . .

Friday, November 18, 2011      8 comments

Oh yeah baby, not only was it breezy & cold this morning, but it was snowing as well off & on. Ok, just who have I become? I must say, if I had other opportunities to run this weekend, I definitely would have waited til later in the day. Or... Read more

I don't understand but major NSV

Thursday, November 17, 2011      13 comments

As I mentioned, my jeans, which were still really snug a week ago, were fitting pretty loosely. So I decided I no longer needed to wear my loose jeans, it was time to go back to more form fitting jeans to keep me honest. When I pulled on a ... Read more

Why a good week can be bad

Wednesday, November 16, 2011      7 comments

I may sing a different tune tomorrow, but for right now I'll say it: it's been a good, albeit very busy, week. I feel as tho I'm peaking, physically, at the right time. I sure hope that's true! My jeans, which have been fitting snugly for a... Read more
