Just can't seem to get back on track
Tuesday, February 15, 2011      4 comments

I don't know why, but I just can't seem to get back on track for more than a couple days. I'm really frustrated because I know why I shouldn't be eating candy and sweets, but I can't seem to stop myself. I know why I should be eating all my frui... Read more
half way there

I have gotten all my workouts in this past week. I am still having trouble with my eating. I think I need to try something new to get back on track. I think what I will try is watching what I'm eating, but not capping the calories. I have been ... Read more
Setting the stage for success ... admitting the mistakes and moving forward
Monday, January 10, 2011      0 comments

I alluded to this a little in my quick post yesterday, but I basically fell off the wagon recently. The bad thing is that it was a decision I made on my own, I decided that I was going to take a week off from not eating refined carbs. Not a meal... Read more

I have been MIA from Spark, but I have definitely stayed on the wagon. I interviewed for a new job the day before Thanksgiving and they offered me the job the same day. I needed to start quickly, so I was only able to give my job 1 weeks notice.... Read more
Learning from choices
Monday, November 29, 2010      0 comments

I am a firm believer in learning from my mistakes. I definately am not 100% perfect, but I try. The mistake I made on Thanksgiving was trying to fit in to my family's tradition instead of making my own. I didn't bring one healthy thing that I co... Read more
This is why I stopped eating sugar and other refined carbs

I feel like crap emotionally today. I am so frustrated and fed up with everything, for no reason really. I ate several sweets on Thanksgiving, and I am paying the price. I enjoyed them for a little while, but now I am crabby and just in a bad mo... Read more

I ran the Solano Turkey Trot this morning in 37:41! That's my best time yet. I've run 2 other 5k's and the times were always more than 40 minutes. I am so excited to be below. I wasn't sure how well I would do when I started out because I ... Read more
Refining my goals
Monday, November 22, 2010      1 comments

I have been giving a lot of thought to some of the comments on my blog post about Thanksgiving. They led me to think about my goals and what they mean to me. When I started this, I made a decision that this needs to be a life long road not just ... Read more
Weight loss seems to be stalling . . . but it's okay.
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      3 comments

So I started this journey about 4 weeks ago, and I really did it for my overall health (mental and physical). I feel like I need to remind myself because the last week or two in my mind I have mostly been concerned with weight loss. I have lost... Read more
To cheat or not to cheat. . .
Tuesday, November 16, 2010      5 comments

So I've been thinking about Thanksgiving almost since the first day I started my new diet. The past 3 - 4 weeks I had decided and was certain that under no circumstances was I going to cheat on my diet just because it was Thanksgiving. After all... Read more
Ran 2.5 miles non-stop!
Saturday, November 13, 2010      2 comments

I think the title says it all. I got up this morning and ran 2.5 miles non-stop. It was freakin cold, but it felt good. I think I'll wear gloves next time though. I did it in 32 minutes. I think I could've gone a little faster if it was a b... Read more
PMS I hate you
Friday, November 12, 2010      0 comments

Well, I think the title says it all. I haven't been in the best mood the last few days. I know it's not what I've eaten, because I have eaten so well. I do think that I may need to increase my calories in the morning, so I'll work on that starti... Read more
Feelin Great!
Wednesday, November 10, 2010      1 comments

I feel really great today. Yesterday I was feeling a little down, but I'm pretty sure it was due to PMS. I'm glad that's over with. I have been running at lunch 3 days a week for about 25 - 30 minutes. Yesterday I calculated the distance o... Read more
The good, the bad and the ugly.
Wednesday, November 03, 2010      5 comments

The good. I have been running 3 - 4 days a week the past 3 weeks and it's going great! I went from running 3 minutes/walking 1 minute for 30 minutes last week, to this week running 20 minutes (and even 40, and 45 once) straight without walk... Read more
