Duh - when something hurts, do something about it!

I've had knee pain for a couple years. It started before I started running, and I really remember it kicking in 2 years ago (right around when I moved to an apartment that I have to take 60 steps to get to). Since I've been running it hasn't g... Read more

So I did a 10K on Sunday. It was a gorgeous day - sunny and in the 60's. Which after a long winter seems like heaven. Unfortunately, gorgeous for regular activity can be HOT for running. Strangely enough, though, the heat was not the biggest... Read more

In the last entry before my hiatus, I was nervous about my first 5k. A lot has happened since then! In short: * Finished 5k - so happy! * Finished 10k - so happy! * Pulled groin muscle training for 1/2 marathon - so sad! * Finish... Read more

So, I looked at my Other Goals tracking page. It's something I had been ignoring for a long time. I'm hardcore about my fitness, less so about food (due to once a week free lunches), but never tried to do anything about Other Goals. Until now... Read more

I'm running my 5K in 21 days. I've decided to reframe. It's a time to get outside. It's a time to explore areas of the city that I might not have seen before. It's a time to see people & have fun. It's a time to spend with my cousin (who... Read more
A little frustrated
Sunday, October 10, 2010      1 comments

I train alone. Maybe that's not a good thing. Because it's way too easy to give in. Like today - I was running on the track and the wind was up. Instead of persevering, I gave in. Not helping my goals. I will be doing my longer run to... Read more
Feeling good.

I've been semi-lazy recently (which is definitely not a good thing, as I am hitting the start of my half marathon training). Talking to me you probably wouldn't know it, because I do finish the running workouts. But I know that I am finishing ... Read more
Better every day

I've got a goal for myself. Better every day. Every day, I will do something that improves me mentally, physically, or spiritually. It's not necessarily something huge or life changing (although I'm sure I'd like to get some of those in). It... Read more

In the year since I started at my new job, the 3 pounds I needed to lose have turned into 8. Why? Well, free food in a fully stocked kitchen + lunch brought in on Thursdays has helped. Add in a new emotional eating habit & a changed schedule ... Read more
New fun exercise!

So, I asked for and received Dance Dance Revolution and a PS2 for Christmas. Yes, I am 34 and still getting great gifts from my parents - I truly am blessed. Anyway, I tried it for the first time a couple days after I got it, and just was not ... Read more
Finding Balance
Friday, January 04, 2008      0 comments

It's been 5 years maintaining my weight loss. Five years. I plan to make it a lifetime, but some days, I get so tired of it. I think I'm getting better at balancing things, but I still feel obsessive about it. I like to cook, and I lik... Read more
