Time to reset
I am back to reset my goals. My life has become very different since I was last here. My family and I have relocated to Georgia; a place where we have no friends or family. My husband finished his bachelors degree and I finished my Masters De... Read more
Where have I been?
Well, my weight is back up again...highest I have seen it in several months. I stopped exercising, stopped Zumba, stopped running, and stopped watching what I eat. Why? WORK! My inconsistant schedule makes it really have for me to fit in sch... Read more
Slow and Steady
As I begin another busy quarter of school, I want to re-evaluate my lifestyle. My weight has stayed steady at 2 lbs lighter than I started, and that is the best news I've got right now. Life in general has put a halt on my running sessions and... Read more
A Quick Check-In
I know I said I would blog once I hit a five pound loss, but quite the opposite has happened: I am back up to my starting weight :(
I guess I have a lot I could blame it on: lack of time to prepare healthy meals, stress, unexpected happen... Read more
Eye on the Prize
So, I took some time in my private log to envision my future self. Lately, I've been feeling like most of the things I am doing in my life right now are so small and meaningless. But when I began to visualize myself three years from now, I rea... Read more
I'm Back...yet again...
So today, I ran on the treadmill for the first time in over a month. I took it pretty easy today. I used the C25K program and did Week 5 day 1. The run sessions were really slow. As I was running, I could feel how heavy my body is again. I ... Read more
Lost my streak...getting back on track
I'm not sure what it is exactly, but I have done a terrible job managing my healthy lifestyle. I haven't ran in almost a week. My eating habits have been all over the place. I have even gone an entire day without ANYTHING to drink. I have de... Read more
Race #4: The Hunger Walk and 5K
One year ago, I wrote a blog regarding my first race. This was it...The Hunger Walk and 5K, a race in Cincinnati that raises money for food for the Freestore Foodbank. Today, I knew what to expect: Big crowds, lots of walkers, plenty of water... Read more
It finally happened....I fell!
Ever since I can remember, I have been a klutz. I've got scars of all sorts all over my body, most of which I obtained while losing my balance during some activity. I suffered a chip bone fracture on my lower right leg chasing boys on the play... Read more
My 28 day challenge!
In 28 days, I will be on a nice vacation with my family. For the past few weeks, I have been up and down with the same 3 pounds: I would be heaviest on Monday, lose 3 lbs by Thursday, and gain all 3 lbs back by Monday. What a terribly vicious... Read more
Feel good about yourself...Run a mile with your kids!
After watching all the races over the weekend, my 7 year old son was so sure the he could run an entire marathon and win first place. I asked him "So, you think you can run 26 miles, huh?" He said "Yes, that's easy. And I'm fast!". So today,... Read more
My 3rd 5K race
Today, I completed the 5K for the Flying Pig here in Cincinnati. I must say that although there were a lot of people for this race, they didn't go all out like the other races I participated in. I have come to the conclusion that they save all... Read more
'Twas the night before the race...
So, tomorrow will be my 3rd 5K race, and I couldn't be more excited. While looking back at the blogs for my first two races, it amazes me how far I have come. This will be the first race that I am confident that I will run the entire race with... Read more
It's time to just say NO!
I'm not really sure where I'm going with this blog today, but I just felt driven to write. I am still encompassed by this feeling of being overwhelmed. I feel like I am doing a little bit of everything on my plate, but the plate is still full... Read more
Pushing the reset button
Life has been absolutely crazy lately. Between working, planning meals, volunteering, taking the kids to karate class and other events, and trying to keep up the house, fitting in exercise has been quite challenging. I am just 16 days away fr... Read more
