W2D4 of 11 Weeks to AWESOME!
So yesterday yoga almost didn't happen!
No one came to the yoga class. But I was ready and I really wanted to do yoga. AND I had my ipod in my purse - so I went back, grabbed it, and did my yoga podcast!
I also did 2 sets of wall p... Read more
Meh. (9 Days down 68 days to go! Or I'm on week 2/11)
I like week 2/11 :)

It's tough not being able to run or do certain things right now -- it's frustrating. My limited options are not super attract... Read more
Back to Work!
Not loving it.
But anyway -- the work week must start, snow be darned. :) At least it's sensible to not close work today, I was just hoping everyone would be insensible.
While I do feel the weight I saw on the scale last M... Read more

One Day Down - 77 to go!
Yep, that's right - to make my goal more imagineable, tangible, reachable seeming, I just figured out how many days until the goal day I put on the calendar. 77 days is NOT a massively long time. I might re-evaluate my plan between now and the... Read more
Ready to BUCKLE DOWN!
So ever since mid 2009 I've been carrying around some extra weight.
I have remained at a similar weight since then, still within the healthy weight range for my height, and I still am today, but I am not comfortable at this weight.
I ... Read more
First Workout post marathon -DONE
I had to hold myself back from the competitiveness - I went to a spin class and in classes I tend to push ALL OUT. Well, I pushed, within reason. I don't want to aggravate whatever's going on w/ my achilles, so I had to be mindful of that the... Read more

I'm feeling a little better - stressors are still there but they don't seem as bad??? I guess that's... Read more
It seems that this week life stress, work stress, and taper madness have all collided to try to make me completely insane.
I am praying as well as trying to be proactive on my end to relieve some stress - like yoga today at lunc... Read more
