Way back in high school many of my friends were on the cross country team. On a whim I thought I'd try one of their practice routes to see if this was something I'd like to do. Apparently we were on the "short" route which was probably 4-5 mile... Read more

Conscience Eating
Tuesday, March 09, 2010      1 comments

I'm really working on being more conscience of why I am eating. Most of the time it's because of hunger and that it's time to nourish my body. However, my night eating is not about hunger. I crave sweets and have a lot of trouble stopping once I... Read more

Saturday, March 06, 2010      1 comments

I absolutely love when I'm in the zone. The "zone" to me is when I'm eating healthy, exercising, tracking my food and drinking my water. When I'm in the zone it all feels easy and right, but the last couple of days have been a struggle. I've bee... Read more

Well, a week of having the whole family sick. It's always hard for me to get out of my routine, but I kept my workout schedule (for the most part) while I've been ill. I had to take a break from the jogging, but I was able to teach all of my gro... Read more
Starting and Actually Finishing!
Wednesday, January 27, 2010      0 comments

Let's face it, it's hard to lose weight. It's hard to be consistent. It's hard to eat salad when everyone else is having pizza. It's hard to get exercising some days. However, is it worth it? I think so! I've had a bit of a hard weekend. It was ... Read more
