This one has been floating around . . . saw it on my buddies' NATPLUMMER & PUDLECRAZY's blogs. A. Age: 50 B. Bed size: Queen (really small when you add 3 animals!) C. Chore that you hate: um, everything? But cleaning toilets is r... Read more
30 minutes arms ST in 10 minute intervals
Thursday, March 01, 2012      8 comments

Yup, you really can squeeze in exercise in small increments. Got my walk in with the dogs, ate some lunch, washed the sheets . . . and then ran out of steam. I decided that I'd do 10 minutes of upper body ST. Luckily, I have a lot of exercise DV... Read more
I blame it on the sun & ramblings

I ran 3 days in a row. For most runners that's nothing, but I usually only run 3 x week & I don't think I've ever run more than 2 days in a row before. But yesterday was "warm" & most importantly sunny & we don't get a lot of sunny days so they'... Read more
Sometimes giving in is a good thing

My downfall is those little nibbles. A coup,e of chocolate chips here. A lick of PB when I fill the dogs' kongs. A taste of whatever I'm baking. It never seems like much until I step on the scale. Yesterday I had a nice day of clean eating ... Read more
Who will I listen to?
Monday, February 27, 2012      8 comments

God, I was sooooo tired all weekend. Saturday I barely moved at all - I listened to the devil. It was too cold & windy (like 40 mph winds) to even walk the dogs. I know, I know: we all need our rest days. I had every good intention of doing some... Read more
How hard are yo willing to push yourself?
Friday, February 24, 2012      11 comments

My buddy IFDEEVARUNS also ran the Livestrong HM. She came in half an hour earlier than me, despite feeling unprepared. She said she really pushed herself . . . obviously - she shaved 10 minutes off of her time from the previous year. She also sa... Read more
Awesome way to spend my 50th!
Thursday, February 23, 2012      10 comments

I will always really treasure this past week. I miss Austin sooooooo much; in some ways it was hard to be back, but I'm also really grateful for the opportunity. We hit a lot of the things we both wanted to do. Got together with a bunch of ... Read more
You paid $$$$ to do this?

That was just one of the signs along the way today in the running of my second HM. My favorite one was "this is the worst parade ever". I came in just under 3 hrs at 2:57:01 for an average pace of 13:35 - shaving a full 10 minutes off my first H... Read more
What to do when you've had an unexpected gain
Friday, February 17, 2012      7 comments

1. Give up. You've probably done this dozens of times - and you know exactly where that gets you. 2. Deprive yourself, because obviously you overindulged. Deprivation never works, and you need to fuel your body. 3. Examine what you did... Read more
It's so tempting to treat yourself with food

It's truly bizarre that I was made MOD today - something I wouldn't have e er known without all the comments - because today is my fiftieth birthday. Yup, the big 5-0. And how did I spend it? All by my lonesome. DH is at a conference. My pa... Read more
Nothing says I love you like "you're getting bony"
Monday, February 13, 2012      5 comments

Can't say as I really think that's true, even at my GW I'll definitely have meat on my bones - but there is some kernel of truth in there. I noticed it at my last massage and I know he meant it as a compliment. Last week wasn't great, altho... Read more
Anyone doing Livestrong Austin want to meet & . . .
Friday, February 10, 2012      8 comments

. . . a partial happy dance. So if you're doing the livestrong marathon/HM next weekend do you want to meet up? Or any austinites in general want to meet up? The partial happy dance is about going into this HM 4 lbs lighter than my fir... Read more
There's always beauty if you look for it
Thursday, February 09, 2012      8 comments

I was looking out my window this morning. It was still dark, but there was a beautiful, bright, full moon glowing behind the pine trees. It's been a tough week, many sleep deprived nights for one reason or another, lots of running around. And I ... Read more
Letting go of imperfections
Wednesday, February 08, 2012      8 comments

Been really busy the last few days & haven't even really begun the hard work of getting ready to go again! It's funny, I haven't set foot in Marshalls or TJMaxx yet this yr & I thought that would free up some time but it doesn't seem to. I did w... Read more
Pick your pleasure carefully
Sunday, February 05, 2012      10 comments

When you have a splurge, a cheat, a treat - whatever you call it - make sure it's worth it to YOU. A while back, DH decided he wanted to "surprise" me by picking where we went out to dinner - without telling me; hence the surprise. He chose... Read more
