I really like this Sparkpeople article. I'm not typically the "psychology" type but I really believe that people can benefit greatly from positive self-talk and visualization. For example, when I start considering quitting my speed work se... Read more
I'm Engaged!
Thursday, February 14, 2008      2 comments

Went down to Puerto Vallarta with my boyfriend and drank way too many fruity drinks and did not run at all. However, I DID get engaged (to my wonderful, wonderful boyfriend and not Luis the pool boy). Yeah! It has been a bizarre month alr... Read more
8 Mile Run Results
Monday, January 21, 2008      3 comments

This last Saturday I had the opportunity to run in an 8 mile race. It was a beautiful day here in Fairbanks and I crossed the finish line in 1:14:05 - about 9:15min/mile. Not bad. The first four miles I was averaging 10:00min/mile, so I reall... Read more
Definitely Over Smoking

It is now Day 675. Wow. Coming up on 700 days and my two year anniversary (at the end of next month). For the new quitters that read this it is SO worth it. Truly. I was able to run 5+ miles over the holidays in Colorado at an elevation of over... Read more
Here's to a Great New Year!

I was very glad to get back to Alaska and step on the scale and see that I hadn't gained any weight over Christmas! Yeah! I kept up with running over the holidays pretty well too. I ran anywhere between 4 and 7 miles in Colorado a few times. ... Read more
Christmas Survival
Saturday, December 22, 2007      0 comments

I flew into Colorado a couple of days ago for the holidays. I also spent the week before I came down here moving. Talk about a goofy idea - moving in the middle of December in Alaska was not really a well thought out idea. Anyway, it was betw... Read more
Beautiful Hawaii
Tuesday, November 20, 2007      0 comments

Just got back from my first trip EVER to Hawaii. I was in Maui for 10 days for a business conference but I got in plenty of sight-seeing. I went up Haleakala on my birthday. It was beautiful! Later in the day I sat by the pool and drank frui... Read more
4 x 4
Monday, October 29, 2007      1 comments

I've developed a 4x4 pattern of eating that I'm finding fits into my lifestyle really well. The last couple of weeks or so I've noticed that I have the most energy and don't feel like overeating as much when I eat four meals a day, about four h... Read more
A for Effort
Friday, October 26, 2007      0 comments

I think I should at least get an A for effort today. I was craving chocolate and carbohydrates again today. A mid-morning snack - not usually something I indulge in. Anyway, I went over to the Student Union and got myself 2 Hershey Kisses, a ... Read more
Killed a Craving! Ha!
Thursday, October 25, 2007      3 comments

I've been craving chocolate all day. All day being from about 8:30 this morning until noon anyway. I kept thinking that I would go to the Student Union and get a chocolate bar. It has been a LONG time since I've bought a candy bar. Long time... Read more
Snow n' Snot
Wednesday, October 24, 2007      1 comments

It was snowing today. I'm slow as snot when I'm running in a few inches of fresh snow. However, the sidewalks are slicker than snot right after they've been scraped so I'm still slower than snot because I have to be careful. Today, I ran much... Read more

One of these days I'l have to take a picture of the view I got today. It's a sunshiney clear day in Fairbanks. It's also hovering in the single digits. It was about -2F when I got up this morning, but it was about +8F when I went running duri... Read more
Running in a Winter Wonderland
Friday, October 19, 2007      3 comments

It has been snowing all day today. Started last night and hasn't stopped. It's about 25 above zero right now, which is actually fairly warm. However, there has probably been a good 4 inches of snow in the last day. Anyway, I've been slow... Read more

I feel fat today. I don't most days. But today I do. Time to go running.... Read more
Mindful Eating Experiment
Sunday, October 07, 2007      0 comments

I'm going to try out the Mindful Eating plan that Coach Dean talks about in the third part of the "What is "Normal" Eating?" article series in the Nutrition resources. I don't recognize when I'm hungry and when I'm not. This leads to overeatin... Read more
