Make no mistake, running is hard. I have to work to keep moving, sometimes it's more work than others. But no matter what, I feel better when I'm done, every single time. There is something about getting out and feeling my body moving.... Read more

Still fighting the lack of motivation...

That week in Florida was a month ago and I'm still fighting the I-don-wannas... but I am using logic and education to overcome them as best I can. For the most part, my eating has been very much on track... but I have been fighting to get my ex... Read more

I spent the last week at an Army training that was truly "death by powerpoint"... 8 hours per day for 5 days sitting on hard plastic chairs watching powerpoint presentations. We also had homework assignments, some very long and brutal... so tha... Read more

This has been a hard week, mostly in terms of energy and motivation... it just kind of wasn't. In many ways, I felt like I was just plodding through the week... but I have managed to get through 2 of my toughest Jillian DVDs without a great dea... Read more

For years we had a big 4th of July bash... but a few years ago it just got too big... 40-50 people in our small house was just overwhelming. So this year, we are just having a few friends over and prolly won't even shoot off any fireworks. And ... Read more

Sometimes this crazy old house seems like a long lost friend... Today was my first full day home after my 2 great weeks of annual Army training in southern MO. I guess it seems odd to call my Army duty a break, but it really was... just ki... Read more

For the most part I have been not taking rides while I have been here... and it's okay. The gym and the PX are both a mile away, a mere 15-20 minute walk. It gets me how many people think I'm nuts and consider them to be a long way away. Tonigh... Read more

Name a song from a band you hate... this one makes me smile simply because it doesn't specify whether you have to like the song or not... How about this... I am not sure if I like the band Placebo or not... but I do know that I hate (with t... Read more

Name a song from your favorite band... wow, this one is tough. I have several bands that could be considered faves... I think ABBA has to be my all-time #1 group. Now, which song to pick... that is hardly fair... and no, my favorite song from ... Read more
