What on earth is wrong with me?
I burst into tears this morning....because I couldn't find my mp3 player. After about 10 minutes of completely in-proportionate panic, I saw my sweatshirt and remembered that I had worn it Monday morning and stuck my music in the pocket.

It's been a good week.
The scale finally started moving down again, I was able to check off another full C25K day, and I only had one small piece of cake at my sister-in-law's bridal shower. There were three different flavors and in the past I would have HAD to try al... Read more

The scale has not been kind to me for over a week now. My clothes actually feel a bit tighter. My ankle hurts, my knee hurts, and my sinuses feel like they've been pumped full of cement.
My trainer had me do both a little bit of running and... Read more
NSV of the mental variety
I had my follow-up with the surgeon today re: pilonidal cyst. I don't need surgery now, although I may in the future. Hey, I'll call that a win!
As for the NSV....the surgeon's office is on the third floor. When you walk in the building the... Read more
Fitbit, Cysts, and Phlegm
Our family has been passing around the snots again, so I haven't been to the gym in a few days. It's amazing how much I miss it! ... Read more
Today we went to a birthday party. I did have a small piece of cake, and it was very very good. I had to estimate calories of course, but I believe I stayed within all my ranges!
Feeling good today, hope it keeps up! ... Read more
Not a good day.

Tomorrow is another day!... Read more
Getting it done...sorta
My kids are passing around a cold, so the oldest was home from school and they were driving me nuts. After DH got home what I really, really wanted to do was relax with a few white russians. What I did instead is go to the gym.
It wasn't t... Read more
Just not feeling it.
I'm having a slump. I was doing so well with exercising and eating healthfully....and now I have a pilonidal cyst. I see my doctor on Monday, and I'm hoping I won't need surgery. In the meantime I'm trying to convince myself to keep going.

C25K Day 2
I made it through 5 running intervals today!
I think I'm going to stick with that for a while. I w... Read more
The first time I met with my personal trainer I told him "I don't run."
Apparently the healthy living community is a very infectious group. Between reading about Sparkers who love to run and watching people at the gym eating up miles on th... Read more
As Einstein said, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Well, I must be insane, because here I am back on Spark. Again. I've lost count of how many times I've started again. Last time I was derailed by a... Read more
A day of rest
Today is a planned rest day. It's not like I'm totally inactive...I still have to run after the boys, do laundry, make dinner, etc. But on days when I plan to not do any formal exercise, I always feel so guilty. I hope I get over this, because I... Read more
I feel like it's working!
It's that lovely TOM, so the scale is not being nice to me. I FEEL a difference though...in my energy level, my clothes, etc. I just feel a little leaner and healthier. It's probably all in my head, but I'll take it! LOL
I've got to say, I ... Read more
