3 Months until the Half
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      2 comments

Gasp! I haven't been running. I haven't been lifting weights. I haven't been watching what I'm eating. I've been working. Lots of work. And that's about it. So that stops now! I have 3 months to step up my running. I can do it. I know I can... Read more

Only 5 months left. I'm so not ready for it. My official training program doesn't start for another 2 weeks, but I'm trying to get into the grove of a workout pattern. My program is weights Mondays and Wednesdays, and 30 minute runs Tuesday and ... Read more

Oh boy - this has started out to be a crappy day, and I need to turn it around. It's going to be a very hectic two months at work, and I need to figure out how to get everything in. Normally when I get so busy, working out takes last place. But ... Read more
Where oh where did my motivation go?
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      2 comments

I'm having such a hard time getting some motivation to run. I don't know why. This time last year I was running every other day, and really enjoying it. This year - it's just not there. I'm doing my weights more regularly than last year. But it... Read more
Tinker Bell Half Marathon

There's no turning back now. I just signed my (awesome) sister and I up for this new 1/2 marathon at Disneyland! I'm excited about it, but it means that I have to quit this procrastination and really start running again. I do a good job with the... Read more
Another Monday, Another Week
Monday, August 08, 2011      1 comments

Last week - ugh. It was such a long, frustrating one that just didn't seem to end. And it didn't help that I had a migraine, which I still have. Hopefully it will go away soon. I know it's mainly from stress, which I also hopes leaves soon. ... Read more
Another Start

Wow. I haven't been here in 1 1/2 years. That's not good. But no time to dwell on that. At least I'm back, and my goal is to really use this site for what it is intended for. I can't lose weight when I'm not accountable. I can pretend not to no... Read more
A New Year
Saturday, January 02, 2010      3 comments

I haven't focused on myself in several months, and it shows. I've totally slipped from where I was a year ago, and even 6 months ago. I gained back all the weight I lost last year, plus some. And it's so frustrating, but I have no one to blame b... Read more
Another Start

So I took a break from everything over the past month or so. I finished radiation. It really zapped me with energy. I tried to make it to the gym every week, but didn't quite do that. I ended up in the hospital for a few days with the flu and ex... Read more

Thanks, everyone, for your support as I go through the radiation. I'm hoping that I don't get too exhausted - I don't want to be sleeping for the next 6 weeks, LOL! I had one training session at the gym, and today spent 30 minutes in the resista... Read more

Today was the big day - I started radiation this morning. I have to go every day for 6 weeks (not weekends, though), and it'll take aout 15 minutes each time. But it's still a pain. I shouldn't feel anyting for the first few weeks, but then my ... Read more

New Goals
Monday, May 25, 2009      0 comments

It's time to set some new goals. This time, they have to be realistic. I can't just say something like "lose 50 pounds" because there is no accountability there. I know that's what I would like to do, but I've been saying that for several years ... Read more

So it's been one month since my surgery. So far I'm doing okay with it. I started doing cardio last week, and that feels really good. I can't start any upper body workouts until next week, and I can't wait for that. The pain is starting to subs... Read more
Back to Work
Monday, May 11, 2009      0 comments

So I went back to work today, after being out for almost 3 weeks. It was nice being back. I felt like I was missed, which is always good. And several people commented on my hair. I decided not to wear the wigs anymore - they're too hot. And I'm ... Read more
