WOW, what a difference in my eating. I didn't want my Spark friends to see all the garbage I was eating, so I had a perfect day! I even made Dan come on Sparkpeople last night just so he could see my food log, because I was so excited. ;) ... Read more

Tonight I learned something very important about me and running: Never go after eating dinner. I thought I was gonna barf! :( Also factor in the fact that I'm still choking on mucus from a cold I had 3 weeks ago. It was a rough 2.5 mile... Read more

I'm writing again, because I've decided that if I put this goal in front of me, I will try harder to get there. I've been wanting to go out for a run for about the past week, and I haven't brought myself to actually do it yet. I have 2 voices ... Read more

Best ride of 2011 was tonight. The best so far, that is. ;) Tonight I met a few new friends in the ladies group I ride in, and I discovered I'm a faster rider than I was last year. And I decided I want muscular calves like my friend Suzy... Read more

I don't usually do these but it's a nice break from my homework. :) 1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, but I was almost "Barbara Ann" after the Beach Boys song, then my parents nixed it. 2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Last... Read more

I think I'm finally ready to own one. Not the kind my husband has gotten shipped from Hong Kong for $1.50, I mean a good one with no shorts in the wires. This week I've been catching up on housework and unearthed a pile of old CD's from back b... Read more

You know it's spring when you are dodging earthworms on the pavement while riding your bike. :D This morning I rode 12.8 miles, and it was a lovely (wet) ride. It's amazing to me, how many people drive in from the country early in the mor... Read more

The day after a holiday is very hard, because grocery stores sell chocolate for CHEAP. This morning, I had to go to Kroger because I was out of bread, and I got out of there with a loaf of bread and 2 bananas. I'm so proud of myself! I ... Read more
