I told myself that since I was starting pregnancy overweight, I would NOT gain over 15-20 pounds. I started my pregnancy at about 233 or so, depending on which scale I used. My goal was to not surpass 250.
I surpassed 250 before I'd eve... Read more
Oh baby, baby!
Well...it's been a couple months since I posted (and I'm so sorry for not being a better blogger but more importantly for not being a better support on YOUR journeys). It has been a whirlwind of 2 months:

During the year of 2010, I lost 90 pounds and I have slowly but surely packed on 30 of those pounds. Enough is ENOUGH!
What's sad is that, while packing the 30 pounds back on, I've been working out just as hard as ever--it's just the emotio... Read more
I ran across this article online that talks about diet and exercise.
I've been exercising like crazy lately (running 3-5 miles AND doing Jillian Michaels 30-day-shred), but I've also been consuming more food because I've been using so much ene... Read more
Half Marathon in My Future???
After traveling to Montana and exploring Glacier, I told my husband on a walk one afternoon that since I was crossing off one of my bucket list items that I felt the need to add another item to my bucket list. I turned over a few ideas, but the... Read more
Back To Reality (Vacation Recap)
Last week, I traveled to Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming with my brother. The mountains, rivers, valleys - God's artwork - was so breath taking.

Life Goal - MET!

Anywho, I stopped and decided to make a list of short term, mid-... Read more
Spring is a wonderful time for outdoor fitness, and this morning I had a great 3 mile run on our local city trail. It was in the 60's with a light breeze - perfect running weather in my opinion!
If any of you have kept up wi... Read more
This past weekend I competed in the 5k that I've been training for. I finished at a time of 31:25, which is 10:08 per mile pace. I'm definitely happy with my time because it is a personal best, but I hope to just continue to improve that.

Losing and Gaining
I hate the scale. I really do. (At least when it's not showing me what I want to see.)
See the thing here lately is that I know I've been losing, because I've been losing inches. Enough so that people are beginning to make comments. Yet in... Read more
Progress is Progress
Yesterday I was elated when I jogged 5 miles without stopping! Granted, it was at about a 11:35 min/mile pace, but regardless, I did it--5 whole miles!
A few short months ago, I couldn't jog around our block without stopping...progress is pro... Read more

I've said it, now I have to do it!... Read more
Springing Into Better Fitness
Weather here in Texas has been FANTASTIC this past week. We've had wonderful days in the 70's and 80's which has been perfect outside workout weather. (I'm sure we'll be cursing the weather for getting warm so early in the year come July when w... Read more
And I didn't even stop to walk!
Monday I had the day off work. I headed to the park to get in my jog/walk, and I decided that I would just jog for as long as I could before stopping to walk. I expected to get in about a mile before I just felt like I was dying, and then I wo... Read more
