My Body - The Running Machine!

Thursday, February 04, 2016      4 comments

Last night I set out for a run. It was the day after my first official (not training class) at my new Crossfit gym. Needless to say - my body was sore from the night before. With my 1/2 marathon date at only 1-1/2 months away - I know I have to ... Read more

Yesterday I lied

Wednesday, January 13, 2016      7 comments

Today I tell the truth. I have not been doing as well as I can with controlling myself. I have been logging in, doing some runs, tracking most food - going through the motions. But we all know that if you aren't dedicated, if you aren't hon... Read more

Another 5k!

Wednesday, December 30, 2015      8 comments

What a meanie I am - not coming back to my five to tens of blog fans to let them know how my first 5k went! The answer is - It was wonderful! I got the opportunity to run in one of the most beautiful (and hill filled!) areas of Cincinnati.... Read more

Getting Picked Last for Dodgeball

Wednesday, December 16, 2015      7 comments

As an adult I think we've all had those moments. We're standing there, home owners, parents, managers, amazing human beings and a single moment can make us feel like we're small children again - and we're being picked last for the dodgebal... Read more

Why I run!

Thursday, December 03, 2015      7 comments

My best friend cornered me. That's really the only way to put it. We've both been living a healthier lifestyle this year (both with the ups and downs that any person sees when completely adjusting our lives). We've had struggles and successes, c... Read more


Wednesday, November 18, 2015      5 comments

Over the summer I was a part of a SparkPeople Challenge on Facebook that I really enjoyed and really got me involved with other members. I honestly couldn't tell you what challenge it was - but it was on Facebook and it really gave me a wonderfu... Read more

Today I Weighed In

Thursday, November 12, 2015      7 comments

Today I weighed in for the first time since August. I knew I haven't been treating my body right. I knew my clothes felt much tighter. BUT I also knew that weight loss is a lifelong journey. Change does not come in a day. Everyone... Read more

Three Steps to November

Wednesday, November 04, 2015      3 comments

Back to basics. Another beginning. There are so many titles that this Blog could have had. I've written them in the past. But it all seemed so simple, it all seemed like everything I've said before. So the long and the short of it... Read more

July Goals

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      3 comments

So I was inspired by my SparkFriend PickleFish7 to set up goals at the beginning of every month. I've always had goals. Goals for each day, goals for the summer, goals for my overall weight loss - but I feel like monthly streaks, challenges and ... Read more

Why I love 30!

Thursday, June 25, 2015      4 comments

Here I sit a month before my 31st birthday. And I have to say I have absolutely LOVED being 30. Most women probably think me mad. We stare at the # 30 and think "OH MY GOD!" And I was in that boat. But - oh the amazing things that I have do... Read more

Pretentious isn't a word you call a friend...

Thursday, June 18, 2015      6 comments

To my friend at work. Yes, I'm sorry you assumed I would go to lunch with you yesterday. I would have been more than happy to join the group. But you've watched me bike to work each day, bring in packed lunches and breakfasts - and make healthy ... Read more

I'll see your Advocare Bar and raise you some breakfast tacos!

Tuesday, June 09, 2015      9 comments

We've all been guilty of it in our lives. You, me and that friend next to you. We've all somehow plunged in to the rabbit hole, lost our minds and thought that money was the way to improve our health and wellness. Rather than taking the time to ... Read more

To Judge the Face of Courage

Wednesday, June 03, 2015      1 comments

I need a place to vent. My internal screaming has started to leak on to my Facebook page and for the sake of my acquaintances I've elected to bring it here instead. How dare you judge the face of courage? How do you decide who is brave? Who... Read more

Oh The Skinny Fat!

Thursday, May 28, 2015      7 comments

For today's weekly weigh in - I gained a pound. Let's be honest: it wasn't water weight, it wasn't new muscle. It was the ice cream on Memorial D... Read more
