Hard to believe I have hit the 20 pound mark. After not losing for 2 years this feels great!!! I had hit a little bit of a plateau for a while. Had some health issues and an injury that slowed me down for about a month, but I am back at it. ... Read more

So the shingles are finally gone, but then I got a sinus infection. I was supposed to do a 14 mile trail challenge last Sunday, but opted instead for the shorter 7 miles due to my sinus infection. I am so glad I did, because the weather was co... Read more

Wow, I think I enjoy doing a 13 mile trail race more than a road race. On Sunday I finished the Pittsburgh 1/2 marathon, barely, after running a 5K the day before. It was really rough. I think mostly because I have not been able to do much th... Read more

Despite having shingles, I started the Hyner Challenge. I had gone back and forth at least 20 times before the race deciding if I was even going to start. I knew there was no way I could do the whole 17 miles. But I towed the line like everyo... Read more

As of this morning I am not down 14 pounds. This program has really been working for me. I did a 12 mile trail race on Saturday and knocked 26 mins off my best time. Would have been more, but my knee really slowed me down the last 2 miles. I... Read more

So now I am wondering if all along I had a slight gluten intolerance that has been stopping my weight loss. Since going on the Paleo diet on Monday, I have lost 8 pounds already and I have so much more energy. I have not felt the afternoon slu... Read more

Sticking to my diet yesterday was actually easy. I did not feel like snacking at all. I got up early this morning and did my first Boot Camp workout. It was only 30 minutes, but tough. I really hope this works. Not sure yet if I will be abl... Read more
