I saw something painful this weekend. It wasn't me doing it, but it could have been. And I can't get it out of my mind. We stayed with my parents over the weekend and ate lunch with them. There wasn't a single fresh fruit or vegetable in... Read more
AH! That's why we start off slow

I had an ah-ha! moment this week. After having a rough 24 hour stomach bug, I had some extra motivation to start eating clean and healthy. And working out. I found myself doing 2 10 minute workouts when possible. And I thought I would be dep... Read more
A great decision (re: yesterday's 5K)
Monday, April 08, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday I had a decision to make - whether or not to run the 5K I had signed up for weeks ago. I signed up to motivate myself to run again - using a treadmill C25K program. I had five weeks between signup and the race- just enough time... Read more

I'm so excited! It'll be horrible!! :) I'm excited because I'm not letting my fear get to me. I want to do this, I want to help fight climate change. It's such an important cause. Like most things worthwhile, it won't be easy. But I'm ... Read more
The Little Voice Said...
Thursday, January 10, 2013      1 comments

That little voice kept talking to me last night! It said: "It's too late to workout, just get some rest" And I said "NO WAY!" It said: "You can modify these burpees - you're just starting out" And I said "NO WAY!"... Read more

The kids went to bed late and it was past 9:30 when I finished dishes and getting lunches ready for tomorrow. Still 1K+ steps to go for my goal. And I- sadly- decided I was too tired to work out. BUT - I started watching a recording of TB... Read more

I didn't pack enough food for work today- I should have known better when I journaled breakfast, lunch, and snacks and it was 200+ calories under what I normally have. And some !^%&$! co-worker leaves a bunch of packs of kids fruit snacks in th... Read more
I caught myself in a lie
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

I'm still amazed at how easy it is to lie to myself. I was getting ready for some downtime and wanted a small sweet. My mind kept telling me I should just bring the bag over to the couch because "it's faster". And that I'll be able to stop at ju... Read more
