Wow. It is Friday. A few days ago I was thinking that Friday couldn't come soon enough for my comfort (and, shockingly, it had very little to do with needing a break from work) and how miserable I was about this week's LTGL theme, this bloody bl... Read more

Honesty and delete buttons

Thursday, March 07, 2013      12 comments

This blogging thing is hard. I hate (hate, hate, hate) feeling vulnerable, and spread open for others to judge. Yet, I can't make myself write anything that isn't honest and (on some level) meaningful. Which makes me procrastinate doing th... Read more

Thoughts on habits, rewards and obstacles.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013      15 comments

Habits. Seems so easy. Should be so easy. Just pick one and then do it. Right? Wrong. Some days it feels like the commitment needs to be renewed on a minute-to-minute basis. Who knew it could take so much energy? That it c... Read more

Another 5 % challenge has started and I am struggling to come up with attainable goals. I am slowly recovering from my back injury. My physical therapist is pleased with my progress. I wish I was, as well. Considering my limitations,... Read more

Week 1 - done

Monday, September 17, 2012      11 comments

I thought I'd keep track of my progress (or lack thereof, but let's not think about that yet) in weekly updates. I am not sure I can see improvements in any aspects after this week. I have had a couple really bad days, pain-wise, mostly be... Read more

On starting over (or fighting my way back to health)

Monday, September 10, 2012      16 comments

Starting over. Those two words are so loaded with all sorts of meanings. Some good, some less so. For me, I think I need some distance from the past. Doesn't mean I will leave behind the knowledge and experience I've gleaned from the ... Read more

Chalean extreme - Day 1

Monday, November 14, 2011      11 comments

I feel like it should say "Take 2" in the title. 'Cause that is essentially what this is. This will be my second attempt at Chalean Extreme and for a few different reasons I expect it to go better this time around. I tried the program in A... Read more

Ups and downs

Monday, September 19, 2011      19 comments

Welcoming the FALL! The year so far has been full of ups and downs. Most recently a series of downs, but the only way is forward, so that is what I am going to do. Pick myself up, dust myself off and MOVE. I gained some of the ... Read more

A Practice Ride Before Sunday's Race

Tuesday, May 10, 2011      15 comments

I can't believe that I am 5 days away from my very first bike race. I am NOT a cyclist! Well, not yet. Am I ready for the race? Not really. Will I go ahead with it? HELL YES! 60 kilometers. 37 miles. That is 25 kilometers longe... Read more

Taking on "The Swedish Classic"

Wednesday, April 20, 2011      10 comments

I have been thinking a lot about what I want to achieve fitness-wise. I still want to run a marathon this year, just can't pick one, because the ones I want to do don't fit into my schedule. Darn life getting in the way... Read more

Progress Photo.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      17 comments

I realized today that I need to retire these jeans. I have been wearing them with a belt pulled tighter and tighter and now it just looks silly. I found a photo from August 2010 where I wear the same jeans, so I put on the same top and tri... Read more

Insanity Fit Test #2

Monday, March 14, 2011      12 comments

I haven't been as diligent with my Insanity workouts as I could have wished, but I am sticking with it and that's the main thing! I am running 4 times a week and that is still my priority. So, today was Fit Test #2 and I had some concerns ... Read more
