Finally back a bike and working towards some pretty big goals. That being said I've logged 57.7 miles in May! That is 4 weeks in the gym and getting in as many days as we can. Already working on the miles for June and I have started really seein... Read more

Or rather - feeling less fear because I know I can do it now! We've had 3 weeks in the gym and I've been able to get on the bike for as much as 45 minutes and ride. Also we have finally put in new batteries on our bike computers and got to get o... Read more

I signed up to ride in the Bike MS: Ride to the River! I've not been on my bike since January 2010 and yet I decided that this goal had to be met. I'm riding for my cousin, my friends, and ultimately for myself. I HAVE to train to be able to do ... Read more
Mileage total for 2015
Wednesday, February 03, 2016      5 comments

My 'goal' was 1000 miles in 2015. My actual was 592.66 miles. That seems like a big deficit. It really isn't though. I started in 2013 trying to get to 1000 miles in the year. I barely made it to 100 miles in 2013 due to health issues. In 2014 I... Read more

Feeling down

Life currently has me feeling down. I've tried to get myself motivated but it just isn't working. I was thinking hard about this last night. I know the questions that will be asked of me by those I need to approach on this. How was I able to do ... Read more
THAT number :(
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      5 comments

I saw a number on the scale I had hoped I would never see again. Lack of motivation and drive brought that number back to me. What is that number? 164. I know for a lot of people that number is one they look forward to seeing but for me it is no... Read more
Finishing out 2014 better than 2013!
Thursday, January 01, 2015      2 comments

In 2013 I joined a 1000 miles in 1 year challenge and barely ended the year with 100 miles. I joined again in 2014 and even with health challenges and surgery/recovery I beat my previous miles! I finished off the year with 472.3 miles! Yes I kno... Read more

After 6 weeks of nothing post surgery and a week following that just trying to get myself back into the right mental state today I finally made it out to do my first post surgery walk. 1.9 miles is not a lot for someone used to doing 5k distance... Read more
A little down but not out!
Thursday, August 21, 2014      2 comments

So my hysterectomy has been scheduled for October 2, which is months after we had hoped it would be set for and completed. This means several things, but the biggest is that I will not, now, be able to participate in the 1/2 marathon I signed up... Read more

Last night my daughter and I went out for a little girl time. It was fun and I was proud of her and how I actually looked. I'm glad that we did it because you never know what life will bring. In the words of my grandmother, 'Live your life to th... Read more

Challenging myself
Wednesday, November 20, 2013      3 comments

It has been a long time since I really challenged myself. Right now I'm so busy doing craft stuff that I haven't really challenged myself physically. Since I am part of a challenge for San Antonio Spark I figured I needed to rise up to meet that... Read more
