New approach (because the old one clearly wasn't working!)
I'm trying something new, because what worked for me before, isn't working now. As a busy, working mom, I am just not finding the time to take care of myself and exercise. (My daughter just turned two, and I am currently above my peak pregnancy ... Read more
Time to get my butt in gear
(Pic is of Fiona at 6weeks)
I am exactly the same weight today as I was 2 weeks postpartum. That is freeking depressing. Its been 8 weeks! Where is my breastfeeding we... Read more
Hello Baby, Goodbye Baby Weight
Happy to announce the birth of my beautiful baby girl: Fiona Elizabeth. 7lbs, 15oz and 21.5". She arrived via unscheduled c-section on December 23, 2010, after two days of indu... Read more
She didn't recognize me! lol
So I ran into a neighbor today, just as I was finishing my run. I don't see her very often. I've probably talked her 4 times since moving to New Jersey (which was in 2006). She was out walking her dog and just happened to be standing next to ... Read more
Back to jogging, finally.
I finally made it back out onto the trail this morning, for a short walk / jog (25 minutes, 1.5 miles). I haven't been outside yet this spring, and my last time on the treadmill was March. I decided to ease into it, especially since I don't kn... Read more
Rants about the Family's Sugar obsession...
So I just got back from my Dad's 75th birthday party (flew up to Toronto to celebrate). Lots of food, buffet style, ... Read more
I've been slipping, and I'm declaring war on it!
Ok, so things have been a bit crazy and I've not been as focussed on the diet and exercise as I once was. I've just been doing induction for the past week, and I'm already down 1.4 pounds. WooHOO! This is a good start :-) I wanna be in the 16... Read more
2 more days of travel... and then...
I've been travelling pretty consistently since November 13th. I have 2 more nights to go, and then I will FINALLY be home for several months. The damage so far has been a few pounds ( I'm at 176 right now). Although I can't say I've been bad ... Read more
I'm on a Spark Streak, and I didn't even know it!
So I just discovered something and I am WAAYY psyched about it. I've exercised/been active in some way at least once a week for the past 12 weeks. Exercise has become a way of life, and I didn't even realize it! How awesome is that!?!?!?

First 5K :-) I DID IT!
My first 5K time: 36:29
Which is actually my best time yet.
So I woke up at 3 am with butterflies and very sore knees. I think I was running in my sleep. Consulted the hubby who assured me that I could take one acetominophen without a... Read more
Freeking out. First 5k TOMORROW!
I've made a last minute decision to run my very first 5K tomorrow! AHHHHH!!! I'm trying to make sure I haven't forgotten anything.
I convinced myself that I could actually do this by running 4 miles (6.4k) yesterday. I'd been eyeing this ... Read more
me? a runner?
I loved my response to a question on the C25K team, that I decided to post it as a blog.
The question was: Do you LOVE running?
My answer was:
I used to HATE running. Hated how out of shape it made me feel, how slow I felt, how awkwa... Read more
Ran 5K today (not a real race, just did the distance)
For the first time ever, I ran 5K without any major stops. A little slow down here and there to adjust the Ipod, but no real walking for anything more than 10-15 secs.
I did it in 37 min, 36 sec.
When my ipod / nike device told me co... Read more
Running continues and is going well
I still marvel that I've begun to run and enjoy it. I never thought of myself as a runner, and even had the nickname of Turtle Theresa in grade school because I was such a slow runner. Today when I finished my run, (using the Nike + Ipod devic... Read more
