I'm not one for new year's resolutions since they always feel a bit artificial. However, I'm taking today as an opportunity to finally start working on a goal I've been talking about for awhile. I've always wanted to run a half-marathon, and fin... Read more
Big House Big Heart 10K
Sunday, October 04, 2009      2 comments

Today I ran the Big House Big Heart 10K and it was awesome! I've run the 5K before, but wanted to see how I did if I entered my second 10K. Regardless of how it went, I knew I'd have a good time. Who wouldn't want to cross the finish line at the... Read more

This weekend had a lot of ups and downs. I went home for a wedding preparation meeting at my church and felt like ate way too much over the course of the day. Then when I was with my family, there was more eating. I tried to restrain myself, but... Read more

The past few months have been a struggle. I know what I need to do to live a healthier lifestyle... I just have a hard time doing things consistently. And that's when the doubt and negativity creep in. In those moments, it's hard to like what I ... Read more
Not too shabby
Monday, June 01, 2009      0 comments

It's been almost a year since I've posted a blog. So it shouldn't be a shock that I'm pretty much in the same place as I was last year. I'm doing the best that I can, but know that I'm not all that focused. Doctoral study has consumed my life a... Read more
Disappointed in myself

I have no idea what I was thinking when I went on vacation. The combination of my birthday, a family reunion and a cruise let to 4 pounds in gain! I am so disappointed in myself right now. I know I could have made better choices, but I kept givi... Read more
My first 10K race
Sunday, June 01, 2008      4 comments

I've considered myself a casual runner for a while now. I run on the treadmill regularly and have done a bunch of 5Ks and even a few 8Ks. But there was something about the idea of a 10K that seemed so daunting. I don't know what it was, but I wa... Read more

I just had the best Christmas ever! On Christmas Eve, my boyfriend proposed to me in front of my family. It was so wonderful to share this special moment with them. Words can't express how I feel right now. All I know is that I can't stop ... Read more

Well, I'm starting to get back on track slowly but surely. I'm doing pretty well with activity now that I got a gym membership and am there 3-5 times a week doing cardio and strength training. The food however, is not going as well and I still f... Read more
My first backslide
Thursday, August 02, 2007      1 comments

So, I'm back after 2 months of moving and vacationing. While I loved all of the experiences I had traveling in the US and abroad, I wish I had remained true to my program. I think I literally ate my way around the world while on vacation! It ta... Read more
