I actually haven't taken a true rest day in a while, so I'm really looking forward to this one. My knees are hurting a lot. Running seven miles last Saturday is still taking its toll--I did not take good care of my knees when I came in, and I'... Read more

More than anything, just feeling the need to give myself a voice today. :-) I'm having a much better day--yesterday was too. So much of the "obsession" has faded, so much less anxiety about what I'm doing and whether or not I'm doing it... Read more

So I know I mentioned a little bit about feeling like I'd had a setback and it being all a mental thing already, but I'm talking about it again. Because it's still been going on. Looking back, it traces to the 5k I ran on 4/24. The foll... Read more

Unfortunately, this week is mostly marked by the fact that I spent it sick after a good, long stretch of good health. I used to get sick ALL THE TIME in my early-mid twenties when I did a far less good job of managing my health, my stress, and ... Read more

I came across some old pictures on a hard drive this past weekend and decided to revisit some "befores" and "nows." As of my last weigh in, I'd lost just a hair over 70 pounds. I'd like to lose about 40-45 more. It finally sounds really doabl... Read more

Well, tonight could have gone better. What a drama-filled night. We attended a karaoke party at my brother's house. Unfortunately, one of the friends of ours who came with us found himself in the middle of some drama that just snowballe... Read more
