Suck it up, buttercup
That's what I did. I did my tempo run even tho I really didn't want to move at all. Maybe it's the fact that summer has returned. The run was on tbe treadmill because it's 86 outside & we're going out tonight & I had my meeting this morning so I... Read more
Second verse, same as the first
That's sort of how I feel about this week. For different reasons.
Last week I got a horrible attack of the hungries for a few days. I thought it was because TOM would be starting, but I'm still waiting on that. Maybe this is the month I fin... Read more
New grocery store find & ramblings
I found this cool hot cereal from Earnest Eats, who make my fav oatmeal bars (just don't get the chocolate ones!): Mayan Superfood. It has quinoa, puffed amaranth, oats (I think), pumpkin seeds, other seeds, & cocoa. Of course I topped it with s... Read more
Long term goal: better at 60
That just popped into my head as I looked at myself in the mirror after stepping out of the shower this morning.
In some ways I look better now than when I graduated HS. I am definitely slimmer & much more toned, I eat a thousand times bett... Read more
Sushi saved the day
Yup, I ate about double the amount of sushi I normally eat last night (all you can eat sushi place); remember, I ran 10 miles that morning. I also had a very small, but rich, chocolate tart waiting for me at home.
Instead of cutting it in h... Read more
Second report card & LSD report
I must say, it is definitely satisfying to know I've run 10 miles, consumed 6 glasses of liquid already, didn't get lost - and it's only 9 am! And I have a sushi dinner waiting for me tonight.
Because I've been having some vague knee twinge... Read more
What do we deserve, take II
My buddy SKFEREBEE had a great comment to make on my blog about deserving it:
"We don't "deserve" treats. We want them. We deserve to be happy and healthy"
So true! And yet . . .
This is actually a topic I've given a lot of thoug... Read more
On some GSFs, that is. Well, food anyway.
Tried out the Vitapizzas yesterday. Yes, I had one for lunch & one for dinner. And realized afterwards that all that sodium - about 490 each - probably wasn't the best idea the day before WI. I got ... Read more
Treat yourself right
Aside from portion sizes, this is probably what I struggle with the most: IDI (I deserve it) syndrome, because I've worked so hard.
So let's do a post mortem: last week I ran 8 miles, which potentially burned 800 calories. During my run I h... Read more
Throwing in the towel
Not the blog i'd planned to write today, but I'll bet I caught your attention.
Of course I'm not throwing in the towel on my healthy lifestyle; I just threw in the towel on not using my extra activity points this week. Normally I do better ... Read more
Naked: Why did I wait so long?
Grrr. I really hate writing blogs twice. I wanted to share the link for the new vista pizzas with you. No I haven't tried them yet but I'm going to give it a try. It actually works out to less than what I pay for the American flatbread pizza:

Nope, didn't take a tumble; just feeling so wiped out.
Had a great 8 mile run yesterday. I totally ignored the pace on my garmin, ran mostly by myself -- and still hit the pace i was aiming for. I felt really strong & even got a second wind... Read more
The right to bare arms: wedding photos
Here I am at the wedding this past weekend. Hey, it was only about 11:30 pm when we got around to taking these photos.
A kind couple offered to take our photo; of cour... Read more
The lesser of 2 evils
Speaking of smart choices . . . there I was last night, after a day of good eating & a really nice meal (grilled steak, corn on the cob, roasted baby bok choy & summer squash . . . yum!) . . . still hungry.
We did, indeed, get a goody bag. ... Read more
Do you make smart choices?
I think that's what it boils down to -- making smart choices more often than not. We're going to make dumb choices sometimes -- we're human; and boy did I show that today! So how am I doing today?
SC1( smart choice #1): walked the dogs
