I'm super pumped about a recipe I just found. I love rice and beans, but know I'm torturing my husband with the same ol' same ol' R&B all the time. Enter new recipe: vegetarian.about.com/od/

So I left off after the first lifting workout with NROL for Women. I did quite a few weeks, just never blogged about it. We're missing quite a few of the pieces of equipment they use, so much was modified. And then I needed more weights, so thin... Read more
NORL - Lifting workout #1 done!

So during marathon training (which went fabulously!), I started lifting. I kinda tapered off (mostly out of laziness) about 2 months before the marathon. I never did much leg work, either, which I should have! I've heard about the New Rules of L... Read more

So, work changed a lot of things starting in January, and SparkPeople was blocked for months. It just opened back up, so I'm tentatively back. I have tons going on and have totally lost track of everyone here, so I'm overwhelmed for now. Wh... Read more

I'm still around, still running 35-40 miles a week, ST 2x per week (major victory for me!) and eating healthy. Silly ST though, I gained 5 pounds since I started. Measurements in my torso (bust, waist, and hips) are unchanged, so I'm seeing how ... Read more

It was about 50F for last night's run. Can't complain! I ran 7 miles then went to volleyball a little tired and hungry. Tonight I have a meeting after work, so it'll be a lifting day only. Oh, did I mention I've actually been doing that regularl... Read more
Freezing run!

The weather channel said it was 8*F when I ran last night, but the wind chill was -5*F. Woohoo! I dressed for it, but really could have used a full hat (vs an ear warmer / headband). Still made it 4 miles! It should be a little warmer (say 18*F)... Read more

I haven't been able to blog at work (I actually am now, but I'm using my phone!) so I haven't checked in recently. Still running 30-35 miles per week, been ST 2-3 days per week but my diet hasn't been great. :-/ I basically used my 14 mile run o... Read more

First off, let me just say thanks for the responses to my blog yesterday! Some made me laugh, but mostly I was just very relieved that all the responses were opposed to the idea of a stomach pump. Whew. Not everyone is crazy! What a differe... Read more

Running, skiing and relearning the obvious
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      10 comments

We planned to going skiing on Saturday, so I did my long run on Friday morning. For some reason (ahem), my legs were just dead on Friday. I still shuffled along, determined to get in at least 8-9 miles. I hadn't done a long run on vacation, but ... Read more

It's definitely been awhile! The last couple weeks of December were fairly uneventful. My 30th birthday came and went, I shopped for Christmas gifts and packed for vacation. We spent a week in Orlando visiting Disney World. I haven't been since... Read more
New Running Shoes & Lifting (finally!)
Tuesday, December 11, 2012      4 comments

Last night's run was amazing! My new shoes felt awesome. I started before the fiance (TF) got home and planned to run for 30 minutes, figuring that would be 3.25-3.5 miles. I skipped along at a comfy pace and knew I'd finish close to 3.5 miles. ... Read more

You'd think when I go out of town, I would have plenty more time to blog. Apparently not! I get up, work, run, shower, find dinner, then lounge around for hours watching Netflix until it's time to crash. Very productive! My running the past... Read more
Can I have another long weekend now?
Monday, November 26, 2012      5 comments

New counters came on Tuesday (and feel like they've been in place much longer than 1 week), Wednesday I had a day off and ran 6 miles and then baked with my mom. We did pumpkin rolls, which was fun. First time for both of us! Thursday, I did my ... Read more
