When reality hits
So after I got done patting myself on the back for knocking 8 minutes off of yesterdays bike ride time............I realized we do have a scale. I thought we lost it during the move. But alas, it is sitting in the bathroom. So all excited and pu... Read more

I've said it before and I'll say it again............maybe this time it will stick in my mind. Exercise is the very best mood enhancer in the world! This is my Friday, by this time on Saturday evenings I am often dead to the world.........having... Read more
Woweee, a 30 minute brisk walk last night lead to SORE legs today!! That is pretty weak! But, stronger than being passed out early on the couch. So, I take it as a win/lose. I lost a lot of strength during my 3+ months off from exercising, but I... Read more
Year at a glance

You people rock!
I took exactly a week off. Last Monday I was on track, and not again until today was I anywhere near the track. And honestly, I don't feel as bad as I would have when I first started on SP, and I think this is a good thing. When life happens I t... Read more
Well, Tim left today to do his job training in Arizona for the Western regional driving job. I was a royal wreck this morning. Crying, crying, crying. You know it's going to be a long day when you wake up crying. I cried all through church. And ... Read more
Big. Proud. Girl.
Well, I'm still big. Yes, I'm also still beautiful, and right here, right now, I'm pretty darn proud. I have been through so much since I started here in September last year. It's been some tough and rough roads in my personal life. But I seem t... Read more

My funny walk
Today my husband didn't feel like doing the 5K that I was itching to do, so he set out walking in one direction, and I went on my 5K path. When I finished my 5K, we met, face to face on the same road! So funny!!! He walked 2 miles in the time I ... Read more

Lovin my freggies
I was raised a vegetarian, and I naturally love fruits and veggies. But I've allowed myself to "forget" to eat as many as I should over these last few years. So recently I've been adding them to everything, and it feels great. They are the perfe... Read more
