My sister has asked me to run a Half-marathon with her come October, and I started my training today. It's perfect running weather out! And I was just the right amount of tired when i finished that I'm not discouraged about doing it again on W... Read more
Blergh, Pt Infinity
Just ate a bowl of popcorn with butter, green onions and shredded pepperjack which was totally delicious, but way too much food and now I think I need to go lie down.... Read more
The powers of exercise.
Stayed up way too late last night, and got a parking ticket this morning.
I need to do laundry and groceries but I'm soooo tired.
Sitting on the couch reading comics, feeling crappy about the day.
Finally did my workout.

My SPAT says I ran an 8-minute mile. What? WHAT?? I'm going to take that with a grain of salt....but it sure does make me feel like Wonder Woman!
Today, I went to the new Whole Foods in downtown MPLS, and you guys, THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE THE... Read more
Day 9 Check in!
It's been nine days, and so far, I've been successful with my plan to cut out ice cream and potato chips. There's been a few rough, stressful days where that was LITERALLY ALL I WANTED IN THE WORLD but I pushed past and came... Read more

Long Time, No Blog!
Here's what's new with me:
1. I'm really obsessed with the fact that you can make a blog entry right from the start page now.
2. I've had the "Skinny Jeans Workout" pinned in my browser for about a month now, and ma... Read more
Back at it!
2.10 miles in 20 minutes! AHHHH! So happy with that run, and a great start to the week as well! I managed to get a strength workout in, AND a load of laundry AND a healthy lunch.
On the flip side of things, I have to get my accumulator... Read more
Try, Try again!
Oooof. I got back into my running shoes today after inadvertently taking two weeks off. It was.....not pretty. 2.62 miles in MAYBE 32 minutes? Can you guess why I don't know for sure? Yes, it IS because my phone died again!
I am g... Read more
GOD, MY PHONE IS THE WORST.
Well, I think? MAYBE? I ran 3 miles in 30 minutes today, but I think it was honestly closer to 31, maybe even 32, because my phone died about 15 minutes in. So, of course I kept moving, and since I do HIIT when I run, I was approximating my fas... Read more
HEY YOU GUYS!
So, I've been tracking my mileage....not correctly.....these past two weeks. I forgot to include my 3-minute warm-up jog into my time, so all my times have been 30 minutes, not 27. So, 2.7 miles/30 minutes. But considering my goal is to do 3... Read more
I was scheduled to go for a run yesterday.
I stayed home and had popcorn and beer for supper instead.
I feel discouraged.
I'm trying to tell myself that we can't all be Superwoman all the time.... Read more
Running is so great, you guys.
I feel fracking amazing right now. Sweat is currently pooling in many places and I stink to high heaven, but man, what a great run! My second run in a row where I hit 2.7 miles/27 minutes. I felt so strong when I started running, like I coul... Read more
Exercise: I still can't spell it.
Nope, I still cannot spell that word correctly on the first try.
But I did strength workout today! Even though I very much did not want to!
I did it! And now I feel great! And am stuck in a permanent state of exclaiming!
I HO... Read more
