I raced in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
Sunday, October 16, 2011      3 comments

I *did* it. I set a goal, and I made it. I've been doing the October Trick or TReat Trot training program, and Saturday was my race! I wanted to do a real 5k for my first time, and lo and behold, my city's annual Race for the Cure popped u... Read more
I have been so bad lately.
Friday, October 07, 2011      2 comments

I've gained a pound, haven't been tracking my calories, and haven't been drinking nearly enough water. I've been so busy, it's been almost impossible to get to the gym; I'm still managing at least 2-3 days a week, but nowhere near the 5+ I want... Read more
What I fed my kid today

This is all by request, mind you. Pickle Salad (Italian dressing) Guacamole (Made it tonight.) Whole grain chips Blueberries Pepperoni I asked her what she wanted tonight, and word for word, that was what she asked for. I am ... Read more

Yesterday, I had a writer's conference, and I had nothing clean to wear, so I started digging around in my drawer. I spotted my favorite cargo pants; pants I haven't been able to wear in months because my butt got to big. I stared at them... Read more
"Be inefficient."
Tuesday, September 27, 2011      1 comments

I don't know if I ever told her this, (something I plan to remedy after I post) but my aunt once said something that has stuck with me through the years, until settling in my chest as I'm starting this whole fitness thing. "Be inefficient,... Read more
Chi running - the adventure begins!
Tuesday, September 27, 2011      0 comments

I got my copy of Chi Running today. I have pretty much finished my 5k walking program (it's in the ramp-down week, but I don't actually walk until next weekend, so I'm repeating week 4.) I'm starting to read today, and depending how quickl... Read more
Amazing how no exercise leaves you feeling ick.

I didn't exercise at all this weekend; it's been a steady stream of soloing at parenting, trips to the ER (husband has been very, very sick lately) and just plain being unmotivated. I got to the gym this morning feeling unenergetic, and no... Read more

Today's been a pretty good day. I didn't want to get up this morning... it felt SO good in bed. I kept hitting that snooze button. It's one of my fast break goals, but I haven't managed to do it yet. Meh. I'm not a morning person. ;) Went... Read more
What I fed my kid today
Thursday, September 22, 2011      0 comments

Today was a leftover day; we'd gotten a cheeseburger at a local BBQ restaurant, and she didn't finish it, but wanted to take it to school. Plenty of protein to give her late-day energy! So to accent it, I added a handful of cherry tomatoes... Read more
Better day today

I went over my calorie goals today, but you know something? I'm okay with that! It wasn't by much (about 350 calories), and given my intake shortage the last few days, I think it's actually a good thing. I made my ab class, and walked 2.7... Read more
So disappointed
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      2 comments

After a long, stressful, sleepless night, we slept in this morning, didn't take my daughter to school (she'll take a personal day, I suppose) so I didn't hit the gym this morning. I was looking forward to tonight, though, because I was goi... Read more

I think I'm going to start a new series in my blog. I'm going to call it: "what I fed my kid today." Creative, right? As part of my daughter's sensory disorder and general taste preferences, I'm working with her occupational therapis... Read more
I would rather forget this whole weekend.
Monday, September 19, 2011      4 comments

As much as I would like to, though, I can't. It started out well enough. I went to a writer's meeting Saturday morning, took my family to the Ocmulgee Indian Festival that evening, and slept in Sunday. It all went downhill from there. I ha... Read more
Nighttime at the gym
Saturday, September 17, 2011      0 comments

So I didn't get to do my morning workout this morning; I occasionally clean houses with a friend, and had to be at the client's house at 8. Then, we got a call from a second client who wanted an unscheduled full-house clean. I'm not complaining.... Read more
Overdid it a little... or a lot!
Tuesday, September 13, 2011      2 comments

I kinda overdid it today, but in a good way. It started out slow; I was tired and sluggish this morning. I dragged out of bed (late) and went to the gym. I walked for about 20 minutes, then got on the stationary bike. That was my first m... Read more
