I've been off my workout routine for over a year! I'm working out here and there, but nothing routine like we used to do. 2015 May, ran a 1/2 marathon and got wicked Plantar Faciitis.. and had to cut out the running all together (after much tria... Read more

What I'm doing, how I'm doing...
Thursday, October 20, 2016      2 comments

Just a quick check in.. thought I would post about how I'm doing. I've been really enjoying crossfit 3 times a week, but I have found it is difficult to squeeze in that third workout. So I'll probably only go twice a week. I'm starting my sec... Read more

Okay, I'm trying to come up with some mini-rewards for weight loss goals. I'm thinking of setting small increments of 4-5 lbs depending on where that puts the scale. So far, I've come up with a couple of things I've been 'wanting' bu... Read more

I've been getting back into the routine of the 4-5 day a week workout. Although I have started back with weekend morning runs (short distances until I get into the swing of things), I did miss last weekend due to early morning soccer games for t... Read more

So, I bought a groupon for a crossfit near by..not the closest one to my house, but not bad either. Yesterday was my first time.. and it was good. I was very nervous, it is a small place, lots of folks working out, I showed up early to sign a... Read more
Time for a change!

The kids started school today! And although I'm sorry to see the end of carefree summer (for them, I still have to work), getting back to a routine is good. I started back to a weekend run/walk routine. I start off walking, then warm up in... Read more

Thursday, July 28, 2016      0 comments

Okay, adding in more veggies for the win! And a fruit or two. I usually have 1 fruit a day and veggies at every meal, however, I'm trying to make at least half the plate veggies not just for me, but the whole family! I'm about to leave on ... Read more

I enjoyed a nice 2 week vacation back home in TX with my kids, visiting with my mom and sisters (not to mention the BIG family reunion with the cousins and aunts with 4 days on the lake at cabins and shared meals) I've gained weight, back t... Read more

Well, I biked to work 3 days a week for the month of May. I had work travel for the first two weeks of June and went for morning walks with my co-worker who is a speedy little walker, so I had to actually 'try'. Got home June 10 and was busy ... Read more
What it's like to bike to work for commute

When we bought our house 13 years ago, one of the added bonuses was it was close to the Burke Gilman trail along Lake Washington. Over the years as I signed up for race events (especially sprint triathlons) I've used the trail for training... Read more

Two things: Went for a run outside yesterday for the first time in a long time. I had done a "walk/run" a couple of weeks before one evening during my daughters dance class. It had felt good, but on this Tuesday I just didn't have the energ... Read more

Hi there, I've been working SO hard on keeping the carbs to under 100 grams a day. I caved the other night and had a whole wheat toast and hot chocolate milk. I just needed a few more calories and a 'treat'. Then yesterday my husband made a p... Read more
Eating in range and focusing on protein

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I spent last week really focusing on low carb (around 100 grams) and high protein (aroudn 120-130 grams) as a way to see if my body would respond. I think mid week the scale was looking better.. ma... Read more

That doesn't mean I will stop trying. Logging my food, logging my exercise. Making changes to diet: getting protein up towards 100 grams keeping carbs around 150. Getting in fiber at 35 gms a day. Fresh fruits and veggies 5... Read more
