Don't Forget The Sunscreen!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012      2 comments

I've been working out at the gym lately, so I completely forgot to apply sunscreen before I went out to run today. We have a very cool rail to trail system in our town. All of the old train tracks have been converted into a running, biking trail... Read more

32 in 32

Tuesday, April 10, 2012      4 comments

Today is my 32nd birthday. I decided not to hang around the house and whine about getting older. Instead, I went to the gym and had an active "date" with my husband. While I was there, I started thinking about the 32 things I'd like to do this y... Read more

Goal Check In

Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

Well, I'm back to check in about the smaller goals I set in March. 1.) Drink 8 cups of water every day. (I had a really good run of drinking 8 cups a day for about two weeks, but I fell off the water wagon. I don't know why but I find it r... Read more

March 2012 Goals

Friday, March 02, 2012      1 comments

Every month I'm going to check in and make several smaller goals to try to make improvements on a slow basis instead of trying to cram everything in all at once. I tend to be a perfectionist, and then I get burnt out. Smaller goals should be mor... Read more

Breathing = Important!

Thursday, February 23, 2012      0 comments

I finally found something I'm totally awesome at... Getting sick! LOL I managed to get bronchitis AND pneumonia at the same time. That's how you figure out that breathing is really important... when you can't do it. I'm mad because I totall... Read more

Joining Up

Friday, February 17, 2012      5 comments

So, I finally joined a gym. I decided that I need to add some weight training in with my cardio after I read an article about burning more calories if you have more muscle. That's all it took! My husband was looking for a new gym closer to our h... Read more

I'm Back!

Wednesday, February 15, 2012      0 comments

My fat cells should be terrified. After a two week bout with a serious cold that almost turned into pneumonia, I'm back on track. I'm pretty proud of myself because even though I wasn't able to exercise due to awful coughing fits, I stayed on my... Read more

Running In The Rain

Thursday, February 02, 2012      5 comments

Today was a busy day. The girls had their usual 3 therapy appointments and I spent all day driving and waiting. It stormed yesterday so I was a day late on my running schedule, and I was itching to go home so I could run. When I dropped the girl... Read more

A Letter To My Body

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      2 comments

Dear Body, I've spent years ignoring you and stuffing myself with food to heal the hurts in my heart and my head. Ten years later, the pain is still there and now I have additional physical and emotional pain to deal with from my weight gai... Read more

The Cure

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      5 comments

After I did my first Couch to 5k run on Sunday I was exhausted, and sore for two days. I took Motrin, hot baths, and iced my hips where the pain was centered. This morning I woke up dreading today's run. I was still mildly sore and more than sli... Read more

Run Girl, Run!

Sunday, January 22, 2012      10 comments

I've always envied the blonde girls with the perky ponytails who run around the walking track instead of huffing and puffing along before giving up. Seriously, I sounded like the "Little Engine That Could". And at the end instead of "I thought I... Read more

Big Fat Nothing!

Friday, January 20, 2012      6 comments

I put this update on one of the forums I frequent here but wanted to put a little update on my blog as well. I weighed in today and lost... NOTHING. I was bummed. Then my husband wanted to take us out for ice cream but I resisted! I'm tryin... Read more
