I feel very stuck right now. I've been looking for a new job for a while. My current job is very unstable. Each month the company is losing money instead of making a profit. We laid off 50% of our people last fall. There is talk that unless some... Read more

Eat for Fuel

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      2 comments

A lot of us here have bad relationships with food. We eat it to comfort ourselves when we're feeling down. We eat it to fill a hole that we cannot fill. At least that is how I was when I would over eat. Then I switched to trying to lose weight a... Read more

Monday, February 16, 2015      5 comments

I was looking at the calendar today and I realized that my first race this year is only 3 weeks away. My goal had been to do it under 40 minutes. I've been good about going to the gym 2-3 times a week and have been doing intervals on the treadmi... Read more

Mentally Stable? Who me? Yes me!

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      4 comments

Disclaimer - This is a long personal post. Back in late 2009 I was very depressed and in an unhappy marriage. After a lot of pushing from my friends and family I started seeing a therapist in October of that year. In March she moved away a... Read more

Week off from the gym

Monday, February 09, 2015      0 comments

I took last week off from the gym. It was and wasn't intentional. I didn't purposely decide to skip the gym but I was so busy with other things that I was not able to go. What did I do that was so time consuming that I couldn't fit an hour ... Read more

An eventful weekend

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      1 comments

I had quite the eventful weekend this weekend! Friday I went out to a bar/club with a new female friend. It was our first time out together (we usually see each other at a mutual friends parties) and it was fun. I don't go to bar/clubs very... Read more

NonScale Victory = Heart Health!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      1 comments

Today I had a nonscale victory. I always wear a heart monitor when I run on the treadmill because I sometimes have chest pain. Usually I cannot run for more than a minute so I do a lot of intervals which are good for me anyway. Today I was ... Read more

Stronger than yesterday!

Monday, January 26, 2015      0 comments

I am really happy that my husband has joined the gym with me because it has kept me consistent with hitting up the gym at least once in a weekend plus the times I go during the week by myself. Yesterday we went and I took it easy on the tre... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts 5 5k's in 2015? Maybe!

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      36 comments

I've never been a big runner. When I was in school and we had to do the mile run for the fitness test I took as long as humanly possible to do it. I want to say I took the entire class to walk the thing but in reality it was probably 20-30 minut... Read more

The last time I worked out was almost a week ago. It was Wednesday last night. I was on such a good roll and had logged 7 miles all ready that week and had so many plans to continue. Then Wednesday night I got hit with a TERRIBLE stomach virus. ... Read more

Sore but it feels good

Wednesday, January 07, 2015      2 comments

I'm quite sore today which is a little odd because I took yesterday as a rest day. I worked out hard on Sunday (cardio/leg day) and also on Monday (cardio/chest/shoulder/triceps

Wake Up Call

Wednesday, December 31, 2014      1 comments

The scale has been bouncing between 165 and 166 the past couple of weeks. This is very disheartening considering it was around 155-158 when I got married back in October. I always told myself I wouldn't be the person who got married and gained a... Read more
