Tuesday, July 17, 2012      5 comments

I have come to the realization that I need new shoes for working out. The pair I have had since last summer are literally falling apart. That is no good! Now comes the hard part- what brand, style, color, etc? Buying shoes is a tad d... Read more

Focus on Wellness

Tuesday, July 10, 2012      2 comments

I had a breakdown last week. Not the "I am so stressed, life sucks" type of breakdown, but the type where you realize that you CANNOT do anymore, you cannot add one more thing to your plate or that crack is going to cause a deafening shatter. ... Read more

So, here I am yet again. Sometimes I think I like the drama of failing! I seem to let myself do it way too often. BUT. I am back, and I will do my best yet again. I hope these blogs begin to resonate wtih me...they are somewhat therapeutic... Read more

Vit. D deficiency + PCOS

Monday, January 02, 2012      2 comments

I had my labs run last week again since I have PCOS. I hadn't really had any symptoms of PCOS since 2010, so in February 2011, I took myself off of Metformin. I felt I did well, and was able to lose a little bit of weight. When I met with my ... Read more

This blog is not in a negative tone..I just need to put that out there since some of what I may say may come off a bit negative. Well, I fell off the train. COMPLETELY> for approximately three weeks. The three weeks prior to that I was ver... Read more

The Skeleton on the Stair-stepper...

Monday, November 14, 2011      4 comments

I noticed something yesterday at the gym that made me a bit sad. I noticed a woman who was merely a skeleton working out like a maniac on one of the stair stepping machines. She could not have been more than 85 pounds. Her arms were barely cover... Read more

Day 1 (AKA day 145)

Monday, October 24, 2011      4 comments

Wow- it's hard to believe that I am technically on day 145. I decided to start fresh though, so today is day one for a lot of reasons. Mainly: *I needed a sense of renewal *Life has thrown some insane curve balls as far as eating "right" ... Read more

I think I am starting to get to the point where I finally accept the fact that I need to be HAPPY to get in three workouts a week. For awhile there I would beat myself up, get down and ultimately mess with my head. That is a vicious cycle. ... Read more

Weather changes

Friday, October 07, 2011      7 comments

With the change of seasons comes a change in my appetite. I feel like a need to eat more and more carbs to pack on the weight for winter. Obviously, not what I WANT to do! I am trying to lose padding from the last 15 winters still, I don't need ... Read more

Crying while running.....

Thursday, September 22, 2011      26 comments

Oh what a night. Last night I started my jog at the local track, completely pumped up and ready to go. I had a personal goal to add another 1/2 mile to my distance so I can eventually try to go faster...anyways I had it all worked out in my head... Read more

The Blog I NEVER wanted to write...

Monday, September 12, 2011      27 comments

Here I am. Struggling. Life has gotten a bit chaotic in the last three weeks or so. I have found myself making poor choices, missing workouts, and feeling miserable afterwards. This is not who I *thought* I had become. I thought that I had risen... Read more

Thursday, September 01, 2011      4 comments

August was a good month for me. My weight didn't do anything magical- but I did gain a sense of control. I joined the the August challenge (go team Palm Beach!!) to do thirty one days of exercise. At first I was thinking it may be a little... Read more

I recently expressed my concern for the jump in running in week five of C25K. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to run the 20 minutes straight at the end of that week.... Well! I am onto week seven now. Just did week seven, day one actu... Read more

When you want 1/2 pound loss you get almost three! LOL...I knew that reverse psychology would work with my scale. emoticonRead more

I did it!! (insert happy dance)

Sunday, August 21, 2011      6 comments

I have embarked on the C25k training in hopes that it will make me love running. I grew up hating to run. I dreaded gym class "laps" and the day we had to run the "mile"...I never did great and I think I worked myself up too much to be successfu... Read more
