2/12/14 Patterns
Wednesday, February 12, 2014      3 comments

I see myself repeating so many patterns!! It's time to figure out how to break out. Last night, I did not want to run. Not one bit. I fought myself tooth and nail. The plan had been to run 6 miles, then I was going to blow it off altogether, and... Read more
2/6/14 You are the trophy
Thursday, February 06, 2014      3 comments

I like running because, more than most other sports, you're aren't competing to be number one. Races have thousands of participants, and there is only one first place. Oh sure, they do "first in your age group" but that's still not an attainable... Read more

Superbowl Sunday went ok for me. I went to my 90 minute beginner Yoga class and had a great session. Since I didn't have any parties to go to, I was able to finally convince myself to go healthy grocery shopping. I did eat ice cream, which wasn'... Read more
2/1/14 Great start!
Saturday, February 01, 2014      5 comments

I do love the start of a new month! A chance to look back at how you did last month and to refocus and adjust any part of your plan. I'm in good spirits today because I am starting the month with a small weight loss (about a pound) which I'm sup... Read more
1/31/14 I'm A Rebel (not in a good way)
Friday, January 31, 2014      5 comments

Checking in because I said I was going to daily for accountability. And I failed yesterday. Everything. Well, everything except accepting my failure and moving on. I did ok with eating at work, that's not usually the problem. I let myself ... Read more
Daily Check In 1/30/14
Thursday, January 30, 2014      5 comments

I think I'm going to start a quick daily check in for accountability. I'm back to doing another 5% Challenge, and I haven't even updated my Spark Page!! It feels like there is always so much going on and so much to focus on, never enough time to... Read more
Amazing! (morning workout perk!)
Tuesday, January 07, 2014      1 comments

I just started my morning boot camp workouts again yesterday and there was an unexpected perk! When I got home from work that evening, I didn't have to spend time working out OR making excuses to not work out. Believe it or not, convincing yours... Read more
It's been a minute... (the importance of tracking)
Monday, November 11, 2013      4 comments

Although I continue to log in regularly, I haven't really been tracking anything but fitness minutes. I certainly haven't been blogging, logging my food or taking measurements. And boy oh boy does it show. So far, I'm only up five pounds, which ... Read more
The boss suggested blogging...
Tuesday, August 20, 2013      8 comments

I'm only... three weeks into the challenge and no new blogs since the start!! I'm not sure what is so hard about sitting down and writing. I think of topics throughout the day and I like to write (evidenced by the fact that I usually get long wi... Read more
Summer 5% Challenge Start (long)
Wednesday, July 31, 2013      4 comments

I’m super excited that the Summer 5% Challenge started on Saturday, because I need to refocus in a big way. I haven’t exactly been gaining a lot of weight recently, but I have set aside many of the good habits I was trying to develop, which will... Read more
Don't be afraid to give up the good and go for the great.
Monday, July 01, 2013      6 comments

Hello July. I'm sorry that I've been mostly MIA for the last few months, they have been very hectic! I feel extra bad that I haven't contributed much to my 5% Challenge team, but bygones are bygones. I strayed from tracking and checking in here ... Read more
A moment from today
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      4 comments

So, I had a very active Friday and Saturday last week: crazy intense boot camp Friday morning, 5K race Saturday morning (possibly in record time) and then a scavenger hunt around Denver where I walked and ran 6.5 miles. I was still sore for Mond... Read more
It's time!!
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      2 comments

It’s time to eat my words. Ever since I started trying to make it out to the two boot camps that were offered at my gym (Monday and Wednesday evenings), I've been saying that I would really love it if there were three offered. Three was a magic ... Read more
A-Ha Moment!!
Friday, March 29, 2013      11 comments

Do you ever have A-Ha moments? You’re sitting there, thinking about something to yourself (or maybe explaining something to someone) when all of a sudden, something just clicks and you feel a little silly for never having seen it this way before... Read more
You Had Better Be Running
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      2 comments

Not really sure where the urge to blog almost every day is coming from, but sure, why not! The BF stayed home from work today and did all sorts of cleaning for me so I have... Read more
