Some Nights (Sprint 2/Day 3)
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

Some nights are hard. Last night was a little bit. Started to have sugar cravings after the kids went to bed. The kind of cravings that would usually have me searching the house for something. No point in searching though, since there was no... Read more
Scars (Sprint 2/Day 2)
Tuesday, October 09, 2012      1 comments

Today was a pretty good day. I managed to get out for a run, and did almost 5K in 40 minutes. There was about 5 minutes or so of walking in there, so I'm pretty pleased with that pace. Unfortunately my back hurts now. I worked from home ... Read more

Starting a new sprint today, with a few modifications. I've upped my weekly calorie intake to the middle of my range (instead of the lower end). I've also upped my exercise minutes and calories slightly. Tomorrow I'll start posting the new ch... Read more
Thankful (Sprint 1/Day 7)
Sunday, October 07, 2012      2 comments

Today is the last day of the sprint, which means it's time to reflect on what went well this week, and what I could improve for next time. What went well: - Blogging every day was a great help. Even if it was only a quick check in, it... Read more
Last Friday Night (Sprint 1/Day 6)
Saturday, October 06, 2012      0 comments

Last night turned out be a night of overindulgence. Much food and wine was consumed. That's okay though, because I kind of planned it that way. Today I have a mess to clean up, groceries to buy and a run to do later on. Better get moving. I... Read more

Friday, October 05, 2012      2 comments

Today is a day to celebrate. For one thing, it's Friday, which is enough reason all by itself. On top of all that, for those of us in Canada, it's the Friday before a long weekend -- Thanksgiving for us. And for me personally, there are a cou... Read more
Time in a Bottle (Sprint 1/Day 4)
Thursday, October 04, 2012      1 comments

Today's challenge has been time. It's been one of those days where I've been running from one thing to the next and just haven't had time to write a blog, or do much of anything but run from one thing to the next. Taking the time to check in n... Read more
Hurts So Good (Sprint 1/Day3)
Wednesday, October 03, 2012      1 comments

Went for a run this morning. It was a good one. Now my legs hurt. A good hurt. Only 10 days left until my 100K relay, so I will be looking to get in probably 3 or 4 more training runs before then. I hope we have good weather for it. We've ... Read more
Sweet Child O'Mine (Sprint 1/Day 2)
Tuesday, October 02, 2012      9 comments

Yesterday I thought that my potential obstacle could be finding time to exercise. As it turned out, we were done dinner, dishes and homework by 7:30, so my 10 year old son and I headed out for a walk in the dark. It turns out that my sweet lit... Read more

The title of every episode of the TV show True Blood is a song title. At the end of the show, they play the song. I like this idea. I hope I can be creative enough to find song titles that a relevant to the blogs I'm writing (today's was easy... Read more

I've been thinking a lot about control lately. Probably because I finished reading those 50 Shades books. I came to an important realization the other day. I've always been one of those people who tries to make everyone happy. I think partly... Read more
Forget About It
Thursday, September 13, 2012      6 comments

I've been really conscious in the last little while of how much of my mental energy is occupied with obsessing about weight, what I'm eating, whether I'm exercising enough. There are a lot of things I could be thinking about, and I'm pretty sur... Read more
Tell Me Why
Thursday, September 06, 2012      8 comments

I just finished reading 50 Shades of Grey. I have no idea why, but for some reason, reading this book has me evaluating, yet again, why it is I want to lose weight. Maybe it's because I'm jealous of all the super hot, perfect people in the boo... Read more
