Update on Call me selfish
Thursday, August 30, 2012      5 comments

I've learned a bit more about the situation I blogged about the other day and I misjudged the situation. His wife may be doing the bulk of the bedside stuff but the dad is doing a ton of supportive stuff. I still don't know what he found so se... Read more

I really enjoyed my parents' visit but we did a lot of splurge-y eating and drinking. My mom brought 2 pies, we had birthday cake, and my parents took us out to dinner last night... including drinks and desert. I passed on pie one night and sh... Read more

I skipped the gym today. Partially it was because I didn't think it was right to make my parents supervise my daughter's birthday sleepover but partially it was because I just did not feel like it. I could have gone when the sleepover ended at... Read more

Got 3 miles in. I am getting comfortable running faster. Torn between working on speed and distance. Today I went for speed. Even with ramping up for 10' (and maybe I could do that more quickly), I finished 3 miles in under 30'. I spent mos... Read more

Someone I know through the online community berated unhealthy parents of hospitalized children as selfish yesterday. I used to be one of those parents - overweight, inactive, eating crappy food - dealing with repeated hospitalizations and a day... Read more
Craving routine
Monday, August 27, 2012      4 comments

As much as I love downtime and travel and visiting with family, I am ready for the routine imposed by school. I wish the kids had little enough homework to REALLY be done before dinner but homework aside I love how our days 'roll' during the sc... Read more

I'm taking another run through The Female Body Breakthrough workouts (unless I manage to find a small group strength training situation). This is the same set of workouts I did from September through January last fall/winter so I didn't expect ... Read more

Running and stuff.
Thursday, August 23, 2012      2 comments

I've gotten 3 runs in since I last updated. My achilles seems fine. I never deal with shin splints. But now my hips are bothering me the day after I run (and sometimes the day after that). I have no clue what's going on there. Looking onlin... Read more
Heavy Lifting
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      4 comments

I still haven't made a plan for what I want to do fitness wise when school starts but I have made a few decisions - 1. I don't want to do the Boot Camp Challenge. I watched some promo videos on YouTube and it looks like the very kind of e... Read more
Emotional Eating - How Do YOU Stop It?
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      5 comments

Do you deal with emotional eating? If so, how do you deal with it? Emotional eating was a contributor to my obesity. I have two issues. I overeat to a small extent over multiple days when stressed and I binge when extremely stressed. I'v... Read more

We're home from vacation. It was a stressful week for reasons I won't go into. Suffice it to say, I am VERY glad that DH and I had our cruise vacation because it gave me confidence that the issues were outside of 'us'. This trip is stressful ... Read more
Why do they do this?

We spent the night at my IL's traveling to PEI (where they will join us for 4 nights). We told them we'd eat dinner before we arrived and take care of breakfast in the morning. They've done nothing but fill my kids with garbage since we arrive... Read more
