We had a great weekend! We had a pretty decadent weekend, one where I didn't necessarily keep my eye on my eating as much as I could have, but I don't think it's too detrimental in the long run. I promised you a photo of me in my slink... Read more

I'm sitting here at work wearing my Mpls Marathon 2011 shirt and size 10 jeans, and I am marveling at how far I've come in the last year and a half. I've yo-yo'ed, sure, but I have managed to end up on the happy end of things. I've got just ab... Read more

I'm still here. Lots has happened since my last update. I am still working for the State of Minnesota, awaiting my layoff notice tomorrow. The (Republican) legislature and the (Democratic-Farmer-Labor) governor could not agree on how to b... Read more

It's been too long since I posted/was particularly active on SP! My Xmas break was great. I did run/walk my 10K race. For about 3 weeks out from my race, my left groin area was bothering me when I ran. I did complete the race, in 84:43, ... Read more

It's been 21 days since I last posted. Yeesh! Things have been busy here. I hurt my knee a few weeks ago, and have been taking it easy, electing to just do my long, slow days on Sundays and rest the other planned training days. It all ca... Read more

I'm generally a positive person. I call myself the Eternal Optimist. I have a smile and a kind word ready for many situations. It's just how I am. It's been a surprise this week, then, to find myself wanting to isolate myself from everyt... Read more

We celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new home with my in-laws on Thursday. It was lovely. We had a fire going in the fireplace and pumpkin pie and pecan pie scented candles burning. Sean made his famous ribs on the grill, and I prepare... Read more

Help me, oh SparkFriends. If you don't have an answer for this, ask your SparkFriends to comment if they have one. I have established a great cardio routine. I know that I can set the training schedule and stick to it, barring illness or ... Read more

I've been feeling under the weather lately, and haven't been inspired to write much. I'm 1/2 pound away from being in the 150s for the first time since sometime in early 2008. That means I'm 1/2 pound away from my reward for hitting the next b... Read more

I am apparently the dumbest person on the planet when it comes to my bicycle. I was going to ride it into work on this glorious Saturday morning. I went to put air in the tires, but I always struggle with remembering how exactly the adap... Read more

Hooray, it's Friday! Which means less since I have to work tomorrow, but still. I am always happier on Fridays, regardless. I think we're mounting a shopping expedition this weekend, in search of pants. We both could use some, so I think... Read more

My co-workers almost made me cry today. In the best of ways! I'm still wearing a lot of the size XL and size 16 clothing I was wearing at the beginning of the year. At the beginning of the year, they were too small. They're getting too b... Read more
