Going for another 5K

Last weekend versus this weekend
Last weekend I had a ball! I saw John Maxwell, volunteered at my church's Harvest Fest, went to financial seminar, and went to my third ever Christian (non-gospel) concert, all while completing my homework.

I'm doing a 5K Saturday!
Yep, the title says it all. I'm participating in my first ever 5K walk/run. The only time I ever ran that far was in AIT (advanced training in the Army) when one of my friends helped me out with my run and had me run 3 miles. This is 3.2 miles. ... Read more
More to Love?
A couple of weeks ago I came across this show called More to Love. It is Bachelor version of the show for plus-size people. (Oh, and the other difference is that they pass out rings instead of roses.) So. really out of curiosity, I decided to w... Read more
Ok, so the answer to my weight loss concerns are obvious...
Talk about irony. Whoa! Ok, I really overused that word.

Irony Part 3: Communicating with others

Irony Part 2: Other people's so called advice
When it comes to advice, I have learned who to trust and depend on. Of course b/c of my faith, it mainly from God and His Word, but much of also comes from people. My mom has been the one always in my corner to help me, and has given me advice e... Read more

Making exercise a habit
Exercise (which was mainly running and a few floor exercises; one year of HS basketball) was a on and off thing for me growing up until I joined the Army in 2006. I had to walk wherever I went growing up, until the Army, I was usually only 10-1... Read more
What I am learning about exercise and me...
When I was growing up, there were a few times that my mom pushed me to get outside and run every day (I would skip weekends). It never was the most exciting for me at first, but after a while I got the hang of it. Sometimes, I even initiated goi... Read more
Am I suppose to be worried??
That is a rhetorical question, but when the general manager at the newspaper I work at putted off into the conference room at work tonight before he left, I mentally laughed at the idea...at first.

Motivation from friends and family
You know, actually, having lived in Texas for two years, I have some friends; but they don't know me as well as my people back home. None of them know that I gained weight. And not many of them I am close to, so I don't know if they would even n... Read more
