Running, Running, Running...
(to the tune of "Rollin', rollin', rollin'... keep those doggies rollin'... RAWHIDE!")
I spent so much time refining my running plan this morning that I almost didn't have time to run! HA! I'm just so excited to feel good again and be able ... Read more
"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
That verse was playing in my head this morning, like a song. That happens to me with music all the time. That never happens to me with Bible verses. I'm not a scripture-quoting kind of gal. In fact, I had to google it to find o... Read more
I Feel GREAT!
I'm having the best day! Lying on a beach, sipping a margarita? Nope. Enjoying some romance with my true love? Nuh-uh. I've been cleaning the house all day!!!! Getting things in order feels SO GOOD!
It's our first truly GORGEOUS day of spr... Read more
A "What Is This World Coming To" Rant
I was just poking around the internet, reading some celebrity gossip. I don't know what compelled me to read the comments. WHY am I compelled to read the comments? More importantly, WHY are people so mean?
First I read something about Denni... Read more
Done Being Sick?
Do I dare say it? I *think* I feel better. It's been on-again off-again for a couple weeks, which has messed up my running, let me tell you. Today, I do believe, I feel well rested, with a "normal" tummy............ and very puffy eyes, but who ... Read more
Sick of Being Sick
It's been about two weeks now of feeling mildly sick to my stomach with waves of extreme tiredness. I wonder if I have some kind of virus or if it's a food sensitivity... Whatever it is, I'm sick of it. I think I'm over it, and it's back. I felt... Read more
If I can contribute just one thing to world peace today, it is this:
Do not honk at people for following traffic law!
This has happened to me twice lately. People are in such a blasted hurry to get where they're going that they don't g... Read more
Hi…. Hello…. Bonjour… I haven’t had much to say for a while. I think about blogging every now and then and am just so not sure what to say that I think WHY BOTHER?! Sometimes I have something deep and profound (or so I think) but I stop myself b... Read more
Running and OCD Eating
I haven’t felt much like blogging lately… I’m in “hunker down” mode, trying to rekindle my motivation, figure out what’s eating me, get back on track in all areas of my life. Gee, that doesn’t sound overly ambitious or anything!
So far, my... Read more
New Day, New Beginning, New Commitment
My last rant was a real downer, and that's not who I want to be. That's not how I see myself or how I've been over the last year. Whatever is at the root of this funk... It's time to "Snap out of it!" (Where is Cher when you need her?)
The ... Read more
Today I am realizing that I've been down and out for about a week, mildly crabby....... Did you ever read Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus? Well, I did, and the author describes this thing where women, when upset, tend to dredge up every... Read more
The Importance of Staying Busy
I've always had a hard time with food when I'm on vacation, or even weekends, for that matter. It hit me yesterday that when I'm slacking off (some people call this relaxing?), I feel like I can do whatever I want, which must send a signal into ... Read more
Post-Christmas Renewed Motivation
Man, oh man! The weeks leading up to Christmas were so chaotic and stressful, both the Christmas preparations and deadlines at work. I pretty much quit exercising but did okay food-wise UNTIL Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Good Lord, it felt j... Read more
5K Training Run
My goal today was to shave 30 seconds off last week's 5K time, and I did it! Ok, 29 seconds, but that's close enough for me ... Read more
I am kicking myself (does that count as a cardio workout?). According to my plan, I was supposed to run yesterday. Things got busy, and I decided running today instead would be fine. In the grand scheme of things, it really didn't matter if I ra... Read more
