Feeling a little disappointed today. I have been working really hard training for this 5K coming up and I had to go and injure myself, so I'm disappointed that I may not be able to run the one that I have wanted to. At the same time though I'm... Read more
Why I do what I do.
Most of my life was filled with activity as a fat person. It's hard to do the things you enjoy when you are overweight. I hated myself for it. I knew it was my fault, but changing seemed to be too much of a mountain to climb.
I finally deci... Read more
Oh what a beautiful morning, Oh what a beautiful day..... and I can't remember the rest of the song, but it sure is beautiful out today. We have had a lot of rain lately and it is just nice to see some sunshine for a change. All of the dreary ... Read more
Went for it!
Yesterday I was so ready for my 5k. Was getting all geared up for it and when the time came, I thought I was going to fall flat. I just kept going and kept telling myself that if I run for just one more minute, that I could do it.
Needless t... Read more

I have never really been a person who had a great amount of self-esteem, but I find that the more I do and the more I accomplish the better I feel. Not in a cocky or prideful way, but just in my heart. I am experiencing so much joy right now t... Read more
One of those days!!!
This is a great day!!! I love days like this. You know the kind, where when things go wrong and they don't seem to affect you. That even though it may be raining outside, it is sunny in your heart!!! The kind of day where you feel like you c... Read more
Read a blog today about the soccer mom trap. Even though I am not a soccer mom, my life is still quite busy. Between farming and homeschooling two teenagers, it is hard to find time for exercise. I find myself falling asleep in the chair at 7... Read more
I just love hurdles, those things that try to stand in your way of accomplishing your goals.
The business of life, those chores that never seem to go away.
I have learned that I have to set my mind on exercise. Sometimes I even have to exer... Read more
Glad I Did!!!!
I did not want to do my run tonight. I had been working all day farming and was tired, but I put on one of my favorite songs and quickly got in the mood!! When God uses a song to speak to you it is just amazing. Got 3 miles in today and it is... Read more
It really amazes me what the body that God gave us is capable of doing. Our mind's try to play tricks on us, but when we have our "game face" on and our minds are geared toward a goal, we can accomplish much. We fight through any sign of defea... Read more
Feeling the push
Today is an awesome day. At this moment, I feel as though I could run a marathon.
Today will be the day that I push myself harder and harder with the mindset of making it. I can picture the road ahead and can visualize the finish line. I ... Read more
The Journey Ahead
Sometimes I want to give up and give in, because the road seems too tough or too long. I can be an impatient person and want my goals to be accomplished yesterday!!!
If training were easy it wouldn't be worth it. Anything that is worthwhile ... Read more
Seizing the day.
Today is one of those days, where even though I may not feel much like doing anything (emotionally) that is, another part of me wants to take the opportunity to seize the day!!!
I am going to go with the latter and work on improvement to reach... Read more
I have never made a blog entry before, so we will see how this goes!!!
Anyway, today is such a beautiful day, the son is shining and the temperature warm. I feel somewhat tired today, but am looking forward to going for a run later to help ... Read more
