Picking myself back up....
- and dusting myself off.
I did 5 miles today, and WOO HOO it felt great! This is a HUGE thing for me, because I haven't done 5 miles since last year in the fall.
The winters where I live hit me pretty hard and this last one was among... Read more
I Did An 8K!
After waking up at 4:00 AM, I was not sure it was going to be feasible. I was really tired, and very nervous. My first race, and I did not have a clue what to expect.
When I arrived, the first thing I noticed was that everybody was so ski... Read more
Update - Long Overdue
October 16 is the big day, and its fast approaching. I have been training for this 8k, and I am getting quite nervous!
Up until a few weeks ago, I thought I could do it in my sleep. Then I hit a wall - and the wall pushed back. I had to ... Read more
I turned down Johnny Depp
It was intense. Gently caressing the tops of my shoulders and my neck, I could feel his body heat, he was so close to me. He wanted me badly. Effortlessly I said, "No. I am married." as I walked away and left him there.
That was my drea... Read more
I wish I had eloquent words and witty lines to write a super read like other blogs, but its just not me. I want to tell a thrilling tale of how I wrestled with highway 303 and won, with the wind at my back and the morning sunrise on my shoulder... Read more
Bad Run Today.
I had a hard time completing my normal run today. I don't know what is or what I should do, but this week seems to be exceptionally bad. I look forward to my run days, but when they are happening they seem to be less and less fun and increasin... Read more
100 extra calories...
I have been doing really good with my eating habits lately. Staying on track, not putting anything extra in my mouth, tracking everything. Up until a couple days ago I wasn't doing any of this. I was eating whatever, and NOT tracking. My tho... Read more
Today I did something I was NEVER able to do before...
A year ago, if someone told me I could run for twenty minutes, I would have rolled on the floor laughing. When I was 15, we had to do a mile in gym. I was mortified! I couldn't even get past three houses without passing out! I walked the who... Read more
update on me
So most of my SP friends know I have been good at the disappearing act lately. But slowly I am trying to get back into things here.
After hitting an impenetrable plateau in April, I had gotten really frustrated and tried to "double time"... Read more
One BIG Step Back, and a baby step forward?
Most of you know, I have disappeared from SP for about a month. My computer crashed, and I was trying really hard to stick with things, but soon after, it all fell apart, and even when the computer was fixed, I didn't get back at it.
I hav... Read more
T-Tapp and My Thoughts
For those of you wondering about trying T-Tapp, here is my experience with it so far:
It is an extremely hard workout. Now you are probably wondering what does extremely hard mean to me? Well, I would have to say it would be a touch more ... Read more
Today I did 5 miles at home in front of my computer! It's a record for me. No, I didn't run them, it was a really fast walk, which is what I prefer. Running and jogging are really hard on me, all my flab bounces up and down and feels like its... Read more
I didn't reach my goal today, but that's OK
Today was the deadline, 50 lbs by my birthday, for my birthday. I did NOT make it. I am a little bummed, because it would have been a cool birthday treat, but that's alright.
I made it to 46 pounds lost. I should be really happy, because... Read more
Back from a weekend away...
This Easter, the kids and I went away to the states for a weekend of shopping, and playing in the pool. I had an amazing time, spent WAY too much money, and the kids practically became fish for the weekend.
I took a break from my T-Tapp wo... Read more
Day 13, and only one more to go
So today is day 13 of my T-Tapp workout bootcamp. I have to confess, that it is still really hard, and I have not had any inches lost.
A big part of why I decided to try T-Tapp, is that I had become quite discouraged there was no visible s... Read more
