Ugh. It’s been a really stressful few days. I mentioned in my 10K blog that my son got sick on 5/5. Well it was only yesterday that he was finally feeling better. The poor guy had strep AND roseola which left him with VERY high fevers. At o... Read more

It’s been almost a month since I lost weight. I’ve either gained or stayed steady the majority of April. I went to my first WW meeting at the center and found I gained 2 lbs. I’m not surprised. I wasn’t super bummed either. I knew it was comi... Read more

According to my at home scale I’ve gained 7 lbs in 2 weeks. SEVEN FREAKING POUNDS. It’s not a fluke or some hormonal thing, like I’m trying to convince myself. It’s me. My running as been minimal and my eating has been terrible. I just keep ... Read more

I didn’t mention it here but Thursday night through Sunday night I left my hubs and son in Savannah and headed to NYC to visit my dear friend. It was a wonderful trip but health-wise, it was pretty bad. On Friday morning we got up and did a 2 ... Read more

It appears as if my running mojo is back! Hooray! After terrible treadmill runs earlier in the week I got in a great 5.25 mi run on Friday and a 6.52 mi run on Sunday. Both times I felt pretty good the whole time, especially on Sunday. T... Read more
Change in WW meetings, Change in Clothes, Change in Size, Change in running!

Sadly, it looks like my WW at Work program isn’t going to get enough members to renew. That’s such a bummer because it is so easy to make the meetings. There aren’t any meetings in my city and the nearest center is 25 minutes away. I talked t... Read more

It has been a CRAZY week ‘round these parts. Work is insane. Home is insane. Social life is insane. It’s all in a good kind of insane but it leaves me with limited time to go on Spark! I miss it! I miss everyone’s updates. Y’all inspire me ... Read more

Last nights gym trip was such a great jump start. I decided to hop on the treadmill and get a short 2.5 mi run in. I was worried that it might be pretty tough given my lack of exercise over the past week but it actually went well once I got ov... Read more
Two rough weeks.
Monday, March 28, 2011      2 comments

I’ve had another rough couple of weeks and it’s lead to no progress in the way of weight loss. Luckily, I’ve maintained my weight so at least it hasn’t been an epic disaster. First, my son turned one (OH MY GOD I HAVE A TODDLER) and we had both... Read more

Yesterday I had a horrible run. During it I griped and whined and moaned to myself about it’s horribleness. However, as I got to the end, I was sick of all the negative energy I was carrying so instead, I tried to see the good in the bad. ... Read more
