It is in the teens here with a wicked wind chill. I was a little later than I wanted to be for work this morning, so I had to park much further out in the boonies. I decided to run a part of the distance to the building. That didn't last... Read more

I weighed in this morning for a Biggest Loser contest at work. My weight was 250. Thankfully I weighed myself after my shower this morning and I was 244.4 naked. It is not as horrible as 250, but it is still plenty horrible. GAH!... Read more

I've had a good week. I have stayed in my calories most of the week and did three days of strength training. Summer decided to show up, so I didn't get outside to run and the kids decided I didn't need to sleep all week. So I am a littl... Read more

Yesterday, after everyone was up from their afternoon naps and had been feed and outfits changed, we dashed out to the park. I had about 40 minutes of light left. There is a paved track so I left my husband with the three kiddos at the playgro... Read more
