Stick to it
Stick to it - I haven't been very good at that for the last year. Among other excuses I could give, the biggest and most important is that my new, wonderful job has provided me with a generous amount of extra donuts, sandwiches, and cookies that... Read more
A run in the rain
We ran in the rain last night. Felt great! I was soaked by the time I was done, but I proved to myself that I could finish that C25K workout. I don't want to get to week 7 again, and get "too busy."
AND, I did some strength training, but n... Read more
The body is a strange thing.

Just went for an hour long walk/jog with Casey. It was good, but my hands are all swollen and puffy? I've noticed I get this a lot when I work out. Not sure why.
Does this happen to anyone else?... Read more

Just a couple hours

Had a plan, but I just went overboard on lunch. Hoping I can pull it together and skimp a little on dinner to even things out.

Okay, I have given ENOUGH excuses!
I have to stop these little spurts and stick with this or I will gain back everything I lost. That terrifies me.
It amazes me how much 10-15 lbs make a difference in the way I feel. I have been so do... Read more
Today, there was a blood drive in memory of my brother's friend. He was a local police officer who died in the line of duty not long after Matt died. I am happy to have the flexibility in my job to be able to take time in the middle of my day to... Read more
Zumba, Strength Training, and Inches
Yesterday, I went to Zumba. I dragged a co-worker along with me. I loved every minute of it. I'm not sure she did, but that doesn't matter.
When I got home, I grabbed some more water, and did some strength training! THIS is the real accomp... Read more
