Where does the time go?

I can't believe my oldest daughter will be 6 next week! It seems like yesterday that I was suffering through endless fertility treatments. She was born while my husband was deployed, so I was all alone with her while being thousands of miles f... Read more

I haven't disappeared...just been busy. Still doing the gym thing. I'm up to 1.5 miles in about 15:40. My goal is to get to 2 miles in 20. I can do it. I've hit some milestones that were big for me (besides the running): 1.... Read more

Beat my time. 9:48 mile. Wanna get it down a little more and start going longer and longer...then cut more time. 6 weeks ago, I couldn't run a 15 minute mile. That's a hell of an improvement. I'm pretty proud. ... Read more

I seem to get stuck. Lose 3 pounds. Stick there for 2 weeks. Lose 4 more. Stick there for a week. I'm down almost 10 pounds. Getting stronger. Getting more toned. I've been putting off doing leg workouts because I hate them so much. Squ... Read more

I think I got way too used to cooler temperatures in WA. The heat and humidity of NC is killing me. It drains me of all energy and motivation. Bring on the fall! I'm so glad it's the weekend. I could use some sleep!... Read more

I'm one of the least coordinated and flexible people I know. Always have been. It definitely makes yoga more of a struggle. The P90X yoga is no joke. I feel like I got punched in my obliques. I'm going to try to do it once a week to help wi... Read more

The past couple weeks have been a struggle with getting to the gym. I've definitely slacked and only gone 3 times a week. Between sick kids and helping my husband learn Mandarin, I've been too tired to go. And the fact that I'm getting bored ... Read more
Rough weeks

The past 2 weeks have been rough. Both kids have been sick. My youngest got a cold which ended up in an ear infection. Then, my oldest got a stomach bug that, thankfully, lasted only 24 hours. 2 days later, my youngest had the bug. To top i... Read more

I don't know if I came down with something or what. I was like a zombie for a day or 2...then Thursday night, I was shivering like it was 40 degrees in the house. By Friday morning, I felt ok. Had family come in from NYC, so didn't go to the g... Read more

Eating right and exercising 4-5 times a week. In almost 3 weeks, 4 pounds. Not a great start in my eyes. My husband says he can tell, and luckily, he's not one to beat around the bush. I do think, however, that he thinks I should push myself... Read more
Still going

I still don't "enjoy" working out; however, I know it must be done--for weight loss, for health, and for my general well-being. I have a lot of stress in my life right now, and this is really the only way I have to blow off steam. Betwee... Read more
So sore

I joined a gym. It's right around the corner from my house. Of course, the only time I have available to go is after my kids go to bed at 8pm. I've been doing the "Ranger" workout. It's for soldiers who are preparing for Ranger school. Lots... Read more
