Fiance and I got a lot done this weekend - picked our venue (we have a meeting on Wed to book it), got a few gifts, picked out rings to be ordered later), and went on a few walks while brainstorming. It was a good weekend! 1. 10000+ steps p... Read more

Monday, July 21, 2014      3 comments

Went out for my 13.1 Trainer run again for the first time in 4 weeks. It was tough, but I felt AMAZING after it was done. I'm really looking forward to getting back on track with it - I forgot how accomplished I feel after doing those! 1. 1... Read more

Friday, July 18, 2014      5 comments

This round of BLC, I stepped outside my comfort zone and into a new team. I had been with the foxes (previously cougars) for many many rounds, and I was a little apprehensive about switching teams, but I had gotten too comfortable. It was time t... Read more

We had a box of mac n cheese lying around and decided to make a quick dinner out of it last night. We made some alterations that made it delicious, healthier, and super filling! We've done it in the past with the Kraft stuff, but this time we ha... Read more
Day 7. My happy moment of the day
Tuesday, July 15, 2014      6 comments

I had a great five minute happy moment this morning. Jason Mraz's new CD is out (released today), and while I haven't bought it yet, I was able to listen to it on Spotify. That combined with a freshly made black french-press coffee (cinnamon haz... Read more
Day 6. Weekend victories
Monday, July 14, 2014      7 comments

Spent the weekend back at home with our parents again, except this time we had a little bit more control. I was able to meet my stepping goals both days, and while I did not keep track of what I ate, I made smart choices which paid off in the en... Read more
Day 3. Another Restart
Friday, July 11, 2014      7 comments

Engagement celebrations and the holiday left much to be desired in the way of proper eating and exercising. My average step count for Thursday-Tuesday was 3000. But I am back at it. Managed over 18000 yesterday and over 10000 the day before. Tod... Read more
Day 2. Walking to work
Tuesday, July 01, 2014      9 comments

We walked to work for the first time this morning. The plan is at least 2 days a week. It took us about 45 minutes and it was so nice to have that time together. Way better than the 10-15 minute drive we normally have. 1. 10,000+ steps per ... Read more
Day 1. Restart

Didn't realize until this morning that I missed both my steps (by 500) and my Spark Wheel yesterday. So back to Day 1! At least my days of missing one or the other are getting less and less frequent! 1. 10,000+ steps per day ... Read more

We had our farm share pickup yesterday and picked up a variety of goodies - turnips, brocolli, kohrabi, bok choy, kale, chard, salad mix, and something else I am definitely forgetting. We had a delicious salad for dinner with a homemade Ga... Read more
Day 7. Quick Run
Tuesday, June 24, 2014      6 comments

This morning I did not want to get up and run. Nope. Nope. Nope. Put it off for an hour then realized that I wouldn't be able to make it up in the evening and decided to just go and do it. Since I only had a bit of time left at that point, I dec... Read more
Day 6. Engagement
Monday, June 23, 2014      11 comments

Apparently I'm already not doing so great at the daily blogging. I won't go back and do the blogs for last few days. The fact that I'm back and haven't given up on it because I missed a few days is cause enough to be excited. BF proposed at... Read more
Day 2. Motivation Boost
Thursday, June 19, 2014      7 comments

While out for my run this morning, a van slowed down next to me. My first thought? OMG I'm going to die. Instead, the driver sticks his hand out the window, gives me a thumbs up and says "Way to go! You're awesome!" Thanks for the boost unknown,... Read more
