Change and relationships

Now, I've never been in the situation of h... Read more
Interesting Quote About the Joy of Biking/Eating
I haven't had a lot of time for Sparkpeople this weekend and my eating has been atrocious, but I thought I'd jot out a quick blog to share something I read.
I was given the book, "It's All About the Bike" by Robert Penn. It's a good book a... Read more
The Results Are In!
The results were posted from the 5k I did on Saturday. (I have to start with a disclaimer, though. They had to change the route at the last minute due to the Riverwalk being flooded. This made the route actually 2.9 miles long. Not quite a fu... Read more
Running a 5k.....CHECK!
I did it! I ran my first organized 5k...without walking! That was my goal and I did it! My unofficial time was about 28:30. I'll find out the real time on Monday.
It was the First Things First Santa Stroll in Chattanooga. A group of us... Read more
Kitty didn't make it
Unfortunately, our little kitty didn't make it. We took her to the vet today and saw that she had a large cancerous tumor under her tongue. We had to make the decision to put her down. It was hard, but it was the right thing to do.

It was a fun time visiting everyone in Wisconsin, but it wasn't the healthiest trip. I didn't bring my bike, but if I had, there probably wouldn't have been too much riding. It was cold and dreary most of the days we were there.

Trying something new
Well, there was a time that I stayed in my little box. It was safe there and I knew exactly what to expect. People would suggest things and my first reaction was, "I could never do that!" I'd like to tell you that that box was broken down and... Read more
2nd Annual Bike, Binge and Burn
First of all, I have had a great week of eating healthy and logging my food. It paid off and the scale went down. I had a fun weekend, and yes, I ate a lot of yummy things, but I'm still down from last week. Yeah me!
Now, for the fun... ... Read more
Remember the old sitcoms that had someone trying to choose between good and evil and they had an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other? I swear if I looked in the mirror, I would see them whispering in my ears! However....I think I've... Read more
I need a spark!
I've been kind of quiet lately. I guess I'm in a funk.
Fall is a hard time for me. I'm a Spring/Summer person and tend to get a little depressed in the fall. My move from Wisconsin to Tennessee helped a little, but it's still there.

First of all...Holy Rain, Batman!! I sat and watched it continuously rain yesterday. It was... Read more
Bike Tour, Birthday Century and Stuff (lots of pictures)
Well, it's been a while since I posted a blog. Part of the reason is that, unfortunately, eating right has not been the priority it should be. Why? Don't know. What I do know is that I run into this every year at this time. I'm not too worr... Read more
