Goals, Community, and Rock Climbing

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      0 comments

See that? That's something I never thought I'd see. It's July 15 -- a little over half way through the year -- and I've almost doubled my yearly fit... Read more

Food as Medicine

Friday, June 06, 2014      0 comments

Holy crow, medical care in our country is expensive! It's the first thing that comes to mind when I hear complaints about how healthy food is more expensive than the cheaper alternatives. Healthcare spending was $2.6 trillion in 2010 and i... Read more

It's Been a While!

Friday, April 18, 2014      1 comments

I'm not sure if any of my old pals are around anymore, but life has undergone a lot of changes lately. They've been really great changes! But alas, it did mean that I haven't been putting fitness as a priority. So, living in a new state wi... Read more

A Hobbit's Walk to Mordor

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      0 comments

Yesterday I started the Hobbit Walk Challenge (
/2012/07/23/walking/ ) . The idea is to track your miles in walking/running/elliptical-ing and get to Mt. Doom and back. Before you think this is a walk in... Read more

Down a Size

Wednesday, June 05, 2013      0 comments

I'm doing much better since my last post. I've identified the problem and am working toward a better place. Thank you all for your support! In lighter news, I had a last-minute event I needed to dress up a bit for and in a hurry. Not havin... Read more

Still Trudging Along

Monday, March 25, 2013      3 comments

I'm still here! Sometimes it feels like that's my tagline to life, especially in this last year or so. I've been struggling with a deep, unshakable depression that I keep telling myself is situational, but I think that once you start keepi... Read more

Thoughts on Naysayers

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      1 comments

I have a big detractor in my working out. She tends to demean my every effort, encourage me to eat badly, and sneers at my mere mentioning of working out. If she asks me what I'm doing later, I have to substitute "run some errands" for "work out... Read more

Rollercoaster of Frustration: It Will Get Better

Tuesday, June 26, 2012      0 comments

I almost wish I had enough energy to eloquently express in words the frustrated, exhausted sigh I gave when I opened this blank blog post. I'm up a whole ten pounds since my last post. The causes are the usual suspects -- I didn't make tim... Read more

Disappointment and Goal Reevaluation

Monday, April 09, 2012      2 comments

Things have been ridiculously busy lately, but my lack of blog posts doesn't mean I've been slacking on my health efforts. My weight hasn't changed. Well, to be fair I got some pretty bad news mid-February. You see, I was working toward being "m... Read more

Holy crow, guys. I'm down another two pounds. I'm only counting it as one until I keep the other one off for a week (it keeps me from getting my hopes up :P) but I'm psyched. I haven't seen 164 in almost ten years and seeing it on the scale was ... Read more

Small Successes

Monday, December 19, 2011      0 comments

I've struggled with my slow progress for several months now, letting myself get discouraged and falling back into bad habits. While my weight wasn't going up (thank goodness), I wasn't losing anything. I know that some people lose weight more sl... Read more

The good news is that I've been running often enough that my heart and lungs no longer feel like they're going to explode when I hit that third mile. My regular training has had a very real and noticeable effect on my cardiovascular health, and ... Read more

I have a whole rack of pants in my closet. Like many women, I have the "I'll fit into these some day" pants and the "these make my butt look awesome but are uncomfortable to sit in" pants, and many, many in between. My work schedule has be... Read more

Goals, Changes, and Being Present

Monday, November 07, 2011      0 comments

We've got 54 days until January 1, 2012. I'm thrilled. It seems like I go through the same frustrations every New Year's Eve. I reiterate my determination to lose weight and get in shape, angry with myself for not working hard and sticking... Read more

Back on the Bandwagon

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      2 comments

It's been a while since I've regularly kept up with my blogging. Things have been pretty busy around here, but I'm back! Yesterday I ran for an hour, and it felt amazing. I finally got around to buying fitness headphones that are sweatproof... Read more
