I hit a huge speedbump last week.
Something happened in my personal life that sent everything crashing. There were a few days that I didn't eat at all, and a few days that I ran to the point of exhaustion.
One thing I can say, is that... Read more

This week is so busy, I am teaching a kids class all week, and my running schedule is off. I managed a run last night, but today has to be a rest day, as there is just no time. It is probably good to rest though, as I hurt my foot last night!... Read more

A surprise, albeit, a nice one.
My daughter's senior prom was Saturday. My husband and I have been planning for years that when she had her senior prom, we would also get dressed up in formal attire, and go out for dinner.
I was planning on wearing a bridesmaid dress fro... Read more
See you at the end of May!
I am taking a hiatus.
Not from eating right, or exercising, but from extra clicking.
I have finished my coursework for my PhD, and start my Comprehensive Exams tomorrow. I will have 28 days to complete this rigorous task. Because I w... Read more
TGIS (Thank goodness it's spring!)
The weather here this week has been beautiful! I am so happy. I was really done with winter.

I did 2.75 miles in 31 minutes today. I a... Read more

Have a great week, all!

First race of the year on the books.
I've vowed to run at least 13 races this year.
The first one, Love the run you're with was yesterday. 1 down. 12 to go!
Actually, I'd love it if I did more than 13. I've made a list of races I want to do, and it's 18 long. So I'm think... Read more
13 resolutions for 2013

1. Run at least 13 races
2. Drop at least 13 pounds (on NYE I weighed 165)
3. Do at least 13 set... Read more
I'm a runner!
Great run this morning. 1 mile walk, 3.5 run (42 minutes). Plus, since I went out an hour later than normal, I actually saw someone else on the trail. This totally threw off my pace for the first bit because he was behind me, and my dogs were go... Read more
Shhhh- Don't tell that pound I noticed it left. It might think I missed it and come back.
I weighed 180 at the beginning of the summer. 180. That's the most I've ever weighed. Including when I was pregnant, and at nine months, topped the scales at 170.

It's not getting easier, but...
I've never been a runner. Really- I'd rather take my chances with the zombies.
But I decided to take on this challenge a couple of months ago of running a 5k. Partly because I love being outside and doing things with my dogs (I've been walki... Read more
