Yesterday, I had the most miserable afternoon. It took me almost two hours to get home from work...traffic was a nightmare. Then, when I get home I walk into an absolute mess, thanks to my two year old yellow lab named Duke. Lately, we're trying... Read more

I was so nervous last Saturday! I think I was more nervous than when I ran the 10k last month. I realized that it was because I didn't want to let myself down. It was my second 5K ever...and I didn't want to be let down if I didn't beat my pr... Read more

I'm runniing a 5k race tomorrow and I'm SO NOT READY. I think that's why I'm getting so nervous for it. I was scheduled to run last night, but ended up going out to eat dinner with my family after work. And tonight something else has come ... Read more
My Race Experience
Monday, March 30, 2009      1 comments

I ran the entire 10K and I have never felt more proud of myself! And to think...as of last July, I could not even run a mile without dying. I must say, this is my biggest accomplishment. I finished in 1:13:01. I was worried about the wea... Read more

Okay...I officially did it. I signed up for a 10K race. I signed up to jog/walk just in case. I figured the only way I was going to get my butt moving again is to sign up for a race. We shall see, I guess.... I guess it's time to start ... Read more
Hello 140's!!
Tuesday, January 27, 2009      0 comments

When I started this journey, I never thought I would be able to come as far as I have. I thought...sure, I can probably get to 160 - but that's probably as far as I could get. Over the past week, I'm proud to say that I'm officially in the 140... Read more

I just haven't been exercising like I should be and like I want to. I just keep giving myself these horrible excuses. I don't mind runnng in the cold...but I really don't feel comfortable running in the dark by myself. When I get up in the mo... Read more

I'm running a turkey trot on Thanksgiving and I have so many mixed feelings on it. I'm SO nervous! But at the same time...I feel that I'm ready and am anxious to get it over with. Yesterday I went out and did a short run and a long walk... Read more
I've Gained
Monday, November 03, 2008      3 comments

For the first time since June, I've gained on my weekly weigh-in. I'm pretty disapointed, and inside I know that I need to work harder this week. To be honest, I haven't been excercising to my potential and I haven't been eating very healthy (... Read more

Woohoo! 150's!! I can't remember the last time I saw that number on the scale! I'm totally excited! And this was all after a two week vacation. We did tons of great hiking and some of it was pretty strenuous. I have to be honest and say th... Read more

I don't know what it is, but this past week or two I've been so out of it! Since I've started Sparkpeople, I have wanted to exercise 5-6 times per week, but these past couple of weeks I'm lucky if I get 3 days of exercise per week. And that's ... Read more

So when I got home from work on Monday, I had a package waiting for me. When I opened it...I noticed it was from my Dad. He sent me a Garmin Forerunner 201 GPS wrist device for running!! I'm so excited to start using it and to learn all of th... Read more
