I'm not missing, I swear!

This year has been a rollercoaster ride. I pushed really hard to move up the ladder at my job, and got nowhere, so I moved on... to a better job, better pay, but more stress. I work longer hours some days, but nothing too outrageous. I've mainta... Read more

I'll admit to being a little on the cranky side this morning. Went to bed basically on time last night. About 8:30. Read for a little bit, and asleep by probably 9. But woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. That is so very... Read more

Goal setting with friends

Monday, January 27, 2014      0 comments

I find myself a part of a local group of women, which is very good for me. And this past weekend, six of us sat down together to ruminate on our 2013 goals and results, and to share our 2014 goals. I did not share all of my goals because we did ... Read more

When I started this journey a couple years ago, I used my blog to keep me accountable. And while I do work out with a friend pretty regularly now, I've not felt like I've been very consistent lately and I want to get back to that. I'm still at m... Read more

So this weekend, I went camping with a friend and we grilled a kazillion veggies between Friday evening and Sunday morning. Ok, maybe not a kazillion. But we had a LOT of vegetables. And some of them were veggies I had not really liked bef... Read more

So I'm traveling for work next week, and I want to make sure I stay as healthy as possible with food/exercise on my trip. I booked a hotel with a refrigerator in the room, which means I will be grocery shopping when I arrive so I have cont... Read more

New Triathlon PR!

Brick Training

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      2 comments

Saturday we did a brick - 13 mile bike, 3.1 mile run. There's a triathlon in August we were debating, but the setup is not great, and it's a long drive, which means we'd have to stay overnight and my budget is just too tight for some of this at ... Read more
