The devil's in the discipline
In the past, some people have said to me, "You're so disciplined!"
I took this to mean, "You make time to run." I never really thought I was disciplined, per se, because I was only doing what I wanted to do. If that meant I ran at 5am or in ... Read more
It has been a long time since I've blogged.
I would love to say, "things are so different now!" or "so much has happened!" but that's not really the case.
I've been trying different strategies with my eating, and really have been getting ... Read more
I finally went to the doctor about my leg.
She said my exam was normal, what did I want her to do?
I said, well, it hurts -- so obviously there's something wrong. What's wrong, and how do we heal it?
She kept telling me she didn't know wh... Read more
I have had many things I wanted to write about, but I always forget them.
First, I noticed my weight was way down in the past couple days. It's the three-week cycle (not sure how that works, since all cycles I know about are FOUR-week deal... Read more
I completely let that injury wreck me.
I have been depressed and have been taking it out on my body. I need to treat it with more respect, even if it did betray me with this injury. I need to be able to adapt to things like this, and deal... Read more
Doesn't it always happen when you're 4.5 miles from home?
I have been trying to be really in tune with my body this summer, since I've been working out so much more. I knew an injury would derail me, physically AND emotionally. So why Why... Read more
"I'll get it together, I promise!"
I love the GEICO commercial with the Pillsbury Dough Boy. I don't know if it's because I fly a lot, but it just cracks me up every time.
His last respon... Read more
So frustrated with the scale!
Oh, I hate that beast! It's so unreliable I want to quit using it altogether, but it's really difficult for me to be objective about how I'm doing without some concrete, objective tool.
I have been working out like a madwoman for a few wee... Read more
So many thoughts...
...so little access to a computer. I can't type while I'm running or driving or even riding the bus! And then I forget what I was going to blog about.
I had a bit of a binge last night. I came home after a somewhat unsatisf... Read more
The spark isn't out, it just moved
I have always really enjoyed coming to work. Even on days when I say, "I don't want to go to work!" I am secretly enjoying what I do. But lately I am just not feeling it. I don't know if there's too much going on, or if my focus has shifted..... Read more
I met up with my marathon-training friends this morning for a run. I'm feeling like the shizzle right now because A) I ran 10 miles and have a good runner's high going on; and B) A friend asked if I had lost weight, because I looked "thinner in... Read more
Random thoughts on the trail...
Many times when I'm running alone, I don't listen to music. I just like the sounds of running, like my squeaky orthotic inserts, the wind in the grass/trees/etc., and my breathing. I also like to try to connect with other people on the trail, ... Read more
It's going so SLOWLY
It's true, I haven't totally gotten a handle on my eating. But I've been working out so well, and it just seems like the scale isn't budging. I sort of felt leaner, until I took some photos of myself, which looked exactly like the photos I too... Read more
Um, the biscotti owned me a little.
Found a great new mountain bike trail today -- very well marked and planned out so the easy-intermediate-difficult loops are easy to distinguish (before you get on them). I had a great ride, even though I was pretty tired from SIX STRAIGHT DAYS... Read more
The biscotti don't own me!
I love to cook and bake.
I made some biscotti this weekend, and brought most of them to my office today for a meeting. I tried some of them last night (quality control, of course!) and they are amazing. Obviously I'm quite pleased with mysel... Read more
