Well, I survived my first 5K. It was not an auspicious beginning since they couldn't find my bib when I went to the registration table. I got another one with a new chip, but somehow, my results don't show - it's almost as if I didn't run the ra... Read more
Fear and Loathing of the Swimsuit
Sunday, May 13, 2012      3 comments

My husband and I are taking a motorcycle trip next weekend and will be staying at a hotel with a pool. For most of the family trips that we have taken the past few years, I have avoided pools and in doing so, avoided having to wear a swimsuit. ... Read more

Reading Wolfkitty's blog about Adventure Goals for 2012, reminded me that I really need to get some of my goals out on paper. 1. Walk the Nike Women's Half Virtual Marathon - Done! 2. Walk/Run 1000 miles in 2012 Challenge (Nike+ Site)... Read more
Spring in My Step
Sunday, March 25, 2012      1 comments

Well, it is Spring although you might not know it from the rain and cool temps we have had the past few days. The various aches and conditions have also not made me personally feel very spring-y. I have a wedding to attend in a few weeks, so I... Read more
Status Check

It has been over a month since my last blog post. I haven't lost any more weight - really the last few pounds tend to come and go. It is time to get off of this plateau and make some forward progress! Work has been stressful and has taken a... Read more
Getting by

It's been a bit of a struggle this past week with an IBS flare up. I felt awful during my weekend runs and had to walk more than I could run. Poor DH goofed and used a dried bean mix for dinner on Saturday that had wheat in it. I felt so bad on... Read more
Road Trip

Tomorrow I am heading off to Winter CHA in Anaheim. Travelling is always difficult with dietary restrictions and even more so on this particular trip. We are so busy at the convention center that meal times are never regular and the food availab... Read more
First Fitness Goal for 2012

I walked the Nike Women's Half Marathon today with two friends. I had no doubts that I could do it when I signed up in December, but I did not count that I would be having regular pain in the arch of my left foot that would have affected my work... Read more

just like my closet after the big purge this weekend. I did pick up a few pairs of pants for work and some jeans, but other than that, I truly don't have much to wear. I have no skirts or suits, so I hope that I do not have dress for any meetin... Read more
Allez (or Back to the Piste)!

Okay, I did it. I went fencing last night for the first time in fifteen years! I was able to wear all of my old kit and did not split anything. Nor did I fall despite the fact that my old competition shoes no longer have enough traction and were... Read more
What to Wear
Thursday, December 08, 2011      1 comments

I never thought that losing a few pounds would make such a difference in how my clothes fit. All of my slacks for work are noticeably baggy and I don't really have the time (or money) to shop right now. I am going to have to stop by Ross or som... Read more

I am doing my best to stick with my program despite all of the distractions and temptations of the holidays. I have gotten through my first party of the season! I made a pumpkin roasted red pepper hummus dip and brought crackers that I knew I co... Read more
Some Good, Some Not So Good

We went camping last week over the long Thanksgiving Day weekend. I was able to change up a few recipes to make them GF and CF for me. I didn't gorge on the food, but I was not able to do as much exercise (other than hiking and walking) as I wou... Read more
Date Night
Saturday, November 19, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday was a challenge. I am in midst of another flareup and I felt terrible. Of course we had tickets to a concert and had planned to go out to dinner before the show. Eating out is always a challenge and it is even more so when I am having ... Read more
Lose an inch...

and gain some more self-respect! I do not often weigh myself and I have only taken my measurements once since I started on SP. I put on my GS leader outfit for a ceremony yesterday and realized that it looked a bit too big on me. I took out the ... Read more
