This morning was the Boulder Prix 5k, a qualifier for the Bolder Boulder 10k on Memorial Day. I already have my registration fo... Read more
Rainy Day Blues
I'm feeling somewhat bummed about the rain today. Usually I love rain. But today I was loving the sunshine. I was excited to run after I got off work. I had the perfect plan: Get off work at 5, get home by 5:30 and walk the dogs, run from 5:45 t... Read more

Two days of 6am bootcamp done.
It's not as hard as I thought it would be to get up and get moving for class. Granted, I've actually been going to bed at a semi-reasonable hour the last few nights, which I'm sure helps.

Boot Camp or Bust
I've been whining about missing my boot camp class a lot lately. I'm just not as good about working out when I don't have a designated group activity. Especially when it comes to strength training. All I've been doing is running, which is great ... Read more

Tomorrow is Easter, and while I don't celebrate... Read more

Fizzy Soda and Other Tricks of the Trade
Figures that after I talk about how I've been overeating, need to get on track with eating less and eating better, I get sick. Food poisoning I'm pretty sure.

Less is More
With week 5 coming to a start tomorrow for the 5% challenge I'm feeling both inspired and frustrated.

Motivation. Status:: Need More
I have not been doing great with my challenge goal so far. I don't know if it may be because my initial weigh-in was on my scale, and the following two on the Wii-Fit, or if I'm really just doing a terrible job. Which is likely. I've only sort o... Read more
Wagon, oh wagon, why can't I keep up with you consistently? I feel like I got off the wagon to hunt deer, couldn't carry back all 430lbs I caught, and have been dragging behind desperately trying to catch up ever since.
It's been the last ... Read more

It is not easy to build new habits. I'm sure everyone knows that. It's a lot harder to plan even when you say you're going to, especially when life is busy, work is busy, things get frustrating, etc.
