My husband and I are expecting a baby girl, due Nov 29th. We just found out the gender Monday and I couldn't resist buying a bunch of cute baby outfits yesterday. I'm also on babyfit now. ... Read more
Week 4 Weight Watchers
Thursday, March 25, 2010      6 comments

I made my 5% goal in yesterday's weigh in! I was still a little lenient some days with my portions but then I got a cold. I haven't felt like eating that much. So I lost 2.6 pounds this week. I'm still not sleeping that well and I'm hopi... Read more
Week 3 Weight Watchers
Wednesday, March 17, 2010      5 comments

I had less than a half pound loss this week. After such great losses the first two weeks I shouldn't be that disappointed but I am. Today I kind of feel like I did all this deprivation without much in the way of results. On the other hand, I d... Read more
Week 2 Weight Watchers
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      3 comments

I have lost 5.4 pounds thus far! I tried tracking calories on my own before but I wasn't very successful. So this progress is very exciting to me. I've been trying new healthy recipes and finally using the cookbooks I'd rarely touched. ... Read more
Week 1 Weight Watchers
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      2 comments

I joined Weight Watchers last week and think it's working. Working in terms of it seems to be something I'm able to stick to (so far) and I may be losing weight for a change. I'll see at my Thursday weigh in. I thought it would be weird... Read more
Race results & resolutions

Last Saturday I completed the Hobble Creek half marathon in Mapleton, UT in about 9 minutes faster than my last race. Still slower than the ones I did in Washington at much lower elevation but I was happy with it. It was a pretty Canyon to ru... Read more
Race day tomorrow.

I'm getting ready to run the Hobble Creek Half Marathon tomorrow. I was on vacation last week so I really haven't done a long run (9 miles) for almost 3 weeks. I hope I won't be sore or have a really tough time. I figure even if I have to wal... Read more
Trying to get my half efforts to 100%
Tuesday, August 04, 2009      1 comments

I've not posted for a long time so this will be kind of long.... I am still training for my next half marathon which is now less than 3 weeks away but over the last several months I come to know that running alone isn't helping me lose weig... Read more
Registered for my 4th Half Marathon
Friday, May 01, 2009      2 comments

I just registered for my 4th half marathon, the Hobble Creek half down the Canyon to Springville, UT. Honestly I am not sure I have enough desire to push myself in my training unless I find another running partner (she is gone for the summer). ... Read more
Feeling discouraged lately
Monday, April 13, 2009      4 comments

I feel like I'm trying so hard to eat within my calorie range and have added extra exercise. I'm frustrated because the scale just doesn't go down (at least not noticeably). I flucuate between the same 3 to 4 pound range regularly. At least I... Read more

A friend of mine had invited me to a Yoga class several times before I finally went last week and this week. I was slightly familar with yoga from workout videos that were either really cheesy hippie's or difficult poses. So I hadn't really go... Read more
I finished strong!

Completed the Moab half marathon today! I didn't go as fast as my last two races but I'm blaming that on the much higher altitude and course differences. I was able to keep about 10.5 minute pace the first half and still felt like I was ... Read more
Ahh! Getting nervous about the race
Friday, March 20, 2009      4 comments

I am starting to get nervous about the half on Saturday, not so much the running part but all the logistics of it. Worries like getting there on time to get on the bus, making sure I get my packet in time and that I don't lose anything I put in... Read more
Last Long Run before Race Day
Saturday, March 14, 2009      0 comments

This morning was my last long run before race day. Sometimes I slow down to a walk on my long runs but today I did the whole 6 miles without walking! This is a great sucess for me. I feel good and am ready for the race. I just hope I did... Read more
Scale Strike!
Friday, March 13, 2009      0 comments

I'm going on a scale strike!!! For one thing I bounce from upto three pounds lower and then back up from one day to the next. My friend says it has to do with water-retention. Of course I think I can't really commit, I'll still have the ur... Read more
