Baby, it's cold out there!

Monday, January 16, 2012      14 comments

You know you're officially a runner - or a crazy person - when you spend almost 2 hrs running outside with the temp just barely out of the single digits - not factoring in wind chill. Yup, that's how I spent my afternoon yesterday. 11F (-4 ... Read more

Doing things because I want to . . .

Sunday, January 15, 2012      9 comments

. . . not because I have to. After I showered yesterday afternoon, I spent the rest of the day in my pjs. It's been a very long week & I was really tired - even without the long run. This morning I was remembering. Remembering what lif... Read more

Bend it like Beckam

Saturday, January 14, 2012      6 comments

So here I sit on the couch, freshly showered, but nary a mile ran. Sometimes the best laid plans & all that jazz. Checked out the website this morning - no cancellations. Got all ready & up to the bike path. No one else there . . . then the... Read more

Plan B

Friday, January 13, 2012      8 comments

Many of my goals for this yr are coming along nicely. The house is definitely cleaner than it's been in a while & hopefully I'm building some new habits there that will stick. The spending thing . . . there have been successes & failures. I... Read more

Practice makes perfect

Thursday, January 12, 2012      7 comments

If that first step is the hardest, then practice makes perfect. Well, really good, anyway, because there really is no such thing as perfect & I'm trying to let go of the perfectionist tendencies. I did not make my usual WW meeting this morn... Read more

The first step is the hardest . . .

Wednesday, January 11, 2012      12 comments

. . . except maybe with boot camp! One of the classes I attend at the rec center does a boot camp at the beginning of the month: they set up about 15 stations, each one having a different kind of exercise - both cardio & ST - and you have 1... Read more

2012 word: fulfillment

Monday, January 09, 2012      9 comments

Do you have a word for this year? Your mantra, so to speak? Mine just came to me in a flash: fulfillment: 1. Satisfaction or happiness as a result of fully developing one's abilities or character 2. The achievement of something de... Read more

Why can't every day be new year's?

Sunday, January 08, 2012      4 comments

I must admit to loving new year's: that sense of hope, of potential change - everything old is new again, right? I added some new healthy habits last year: Morning wipe down of the kitchen Almost-daily short yoga practice 2 days m... Read more

Nice to be running with a group again

Saturday, January 07, 2012      7 comments

One of the problems of being a slow runner is finding other runners who are as slow as you. Don't get me wrong - I like to be pushed sometimes. Left to my own devices I most definitely don't push myself too hard. But for long runs, I need ... Read more

Maybe I should become a yoga instructor . . .

Friday, January 06, 2012      6 comments

I had my fitness assessment today. Mostly good, some just ok - sort of as I expected. The test itself was so much easier than I expected it to be. So they started off with my weight - no surprises there, since I'd just weighed in the day be... Read more

Just a little success will do ya

Thursday, January 05, 2012      8 comments

The whole weight loss thing has been moving in the right direction the last few weeks - I know, finally, at the hardest time of the year! It only takes a few weeks of success to help kickstart yout motivation. Not that I wasn't motivated be... Read more

Weight loss is like an infinity scarf

Wednesday, January 04, 2012      7 comments

And for those who don't know, an infinity scarf is one of those circular scarves that has no beginning and no end. I was going to title this blog the long & winding road . . . talk about how this is a journey with no end . . . and then it o... Read more

Just a quickie . . .

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      6 comments

. . . which is ironic, as I'm getting slower! They finally got the results up for Sunday's race (3 1/2 miles) in 40:40 - which is almost exactly 2 minutes slower than last year. I know that doesn't sound lime much, but it's actually a fair... Read more

Time for healthy eating

Monday, January 02, 2012      6 comments

We're fond of saying it's time to get back on track. But that's diet-speak. In a healthy lifestyle you're never really off track; you're making poor choices. And yes, I made some poor choices over the weekend. They were dumb poor choices, t... Read more

Racing into the new year:

Sunday, January 01, 2012      4 comments

The good: *Warmest run in forever, about 45F at race time *I was racing on new year's day - a great way to start off the year *Nothing hurts The bad: *I got there half an hr early & there was no parking in the closest lo... Read more
