Made it to my doctor's appointment this morning! YAY! Goal achieved. I've also followed through with my bar course and just need to register for another test. So far, so good. Now for the raw update: I don't think I'll ever be someone... Read more

First day raw

Monday, May 04, 2015      1 comments

Almost to the end of day one of my raw vegan spree : ) My choice for trying "raw foods only" for a week was to focus on eating fruits and veggies, not just pasta, breads, or other non-plant based carbs. I have to say, that I was really wor... Read more

Not giving up

Monday, December 08, 2014      9 comments

I've accepted that there are factors I haven't addressed in my life which make me less likely to stay on track and complete my goals on time. Case in point, P90x. I made it all the way to day 9 and then BOOM, cold, BOOM, off the wagon. ... Read more

Full disclosure, I took Friday off (I was supposed to do stretching) because I went to the gym, had a great run, but then started to feel sick, as though I had a cold Read more

Today, Day 6 of my 12 Day P90x intro journey, was kenpo. This was my favorite workout so far. It was fast paced but not as jarring as some kickboxing dvds I've done. I had to skip the "X" treme jumps...I'm not sure what you'd call them, but I go... Read more

My number one rule for depression

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      4 comments

Finished day 5 of P90x today (legs and back) and it wasn't as treacherous as yesterday. I modified less stuff but kept my reps lower way, way lower than everyone on the tape. The squats are very hard and I have to be careful because of my knees.... Read more

Day 4 (today) was yoga. I had a day where I was pulled in a million directions at work, I got kind of "down" about a few things. As much as I used to love yoga, I have been dreading this P90x workout. I made it through the disc. With breaks... Read more

Finished my 3rd P-90x with all the modifications today. Let me say that I seriously, seriously contemplated not doing it. I mean, I made my cup of decaf coffee, thought about finishing a movie I started last night. Then I remembered that I... Read more

Whew! I've been doing really well the last two weeks with exercising. My biggest update since July is that I started taking a med that made me balloon up to 130 lbs (I honestly stopped getting on the scale because I didn't want to see the number... Read more

You know when you're already stressed out and then something "big" happens--like, let's say you lose your debit card when you're out of cash and almost out of gas in an unfamiliar area--and all of a sudden, the day that you THOUGHT you were sail... Read more

Sunday, July 13, 2014      4 comments

I love 5ks 10ks halfs, etc., but I'm looking for some lower-cost options that will get me outdoors. Running races is addictive, but I think I may look for ONE marathon in winter 2014/2015 and have that be my race for the year. What else is out t... Read more

One of the challenges I've faced recently is coping with a number of significant changes (like multiple moves, both job and house, end of a l/t relationship, financial stress, etc), and it is REALLY hard to stay consistent with health and wellne... Read more
