Ok, I have a couple of questions... 1. I like my "bike" photo background (though I wish the photos were smaller), but how and where do you all get those cute backgrounds? Are there some to choose from? Or are you using clipart? 2. How ... Read more
3 Minutes
Monday, July 05, 2010      4 comments

3 minutes. Right now, that seems like such a long time to run! But, just a month ago ONE minute seemed like a long time to run. In fact, on the day I started C25K, I truly didn't think I COULD run 1 minute. But, I did! And now 1 minute is fairly... Read more

A Productive Morning (First Goal... MET!)
Thursday, July 01, 2010      2 comments

I've had a great morning. First of all, I got up and did about 10 minutes of yoga using the Wii. It felt good just to stretch and hold (though I don't hold to the yoga philosophy, I do think they are great stretches and really like how Wii... Read more

I still ate horribly today! Part of it wasn't my fault as there were no healthy options at ranch we were at...but I guess I could have prepared better. But, I also just let myself go again. I won't be home until dinner time tomorrow, so it might... Read more
