Started back with SPARKPEOPLE mid – January. Since then, I have been able to stick to my plan, for the most part. I have made some significant changes to my lifestyle, mostly in my eating habits. Gone are the once (or more) a day soft drinks,... Read more

I rejoined Sparkpeople once again a week ago. So far I am down 3 lbs, and that is by simply holding myself accountable but tracking everything that pass my lips. I have been down this road before. This time will be different though. This tim... Read more

The end of another year. 2011 has come and gone. Looking at the year that was, it didn't exactly go as planned. I seemed to be on a hamster wheel regarding my health, never making any progress, and that was frustrating me. And the rollercoast... Read more

Beginning of September things were going great! I was on pace with my personal 60 mile challenge to be done by the 20th of the month, and I was going to see how much further I could go. Then the unthinkable happened - an injury. As a result I... Read more
Sidelined again
Sunday, September 18, 2011      1 comments

Last week I was sidelined yet again. I guess, if you look at the silver-lining it was done "for the health of it" - ie: during a workout. I sustained an Achille's Tendon injury while running on the treadmill, and while it is not a severe injur... Read more

Yesterday I expressed concern about completing the training session I had scheduled for today. The task, at the time seemed daunting, at best. Today I put off heading to the gym as long as I could, but I did go, knowing I would attempt to do t... Read more

And frankly, it is not pretty. Usually my posts are pretty upbeat and positive. Same can't be said about this one, sadly. The conclusion I've come to is I am not cut out to be a runner. I took a look at my training schedule, and I have m... Read more

My 60 miles for August goal
Monday, August 29, 2011      0 comments

Here I sit, August 29, and for the last week, I have been unable to do anything in regards to physical fitness. Perhaps last weekend I was a little over confident in reaching my goal, predicting that I would be able to reach it by last Saturday... Read more
Frustrating week
Thursday, August 25, 2011      1 comments

After a month a steady positive progress, and no health setbacks, things kind of fell apart this week. On Monday at work, I was having difficulties with my hands, which led to extreme frustation. Later on, I had a short lived, but typical epis... Read more
Measuring Progress
Friday, August 19, 2011      0 comments

Measuring progress is such an important motivational tool on a journey such as the one I am on. I believe it was a factor that made me stop in previous attempts - I didn't find meaningful ways to measure my progress. This time round though, I ... Read more

I've always wanted to be a runner. When I was younger, I was part of the track team in school running sprint distances, and as an adult, I have tried to start running, but to no avail. Afterall, how hard can it be, was my attitude? I learned ... Read more
