I had my second session with my personal trainer today. I thought he was trying to kill me LOL. We managed to work my legs and my abs to the point where they didn't want to work any more... there's nothing more sad than trying to do a sit-up a... Read more

I made it back to the gym again today, woo hoo! They are doing construction in the complex where my gym is, with the main entrance basically closed to traffic. It would have been easy to say "oh well, can't make it in, let's go home." But I w... Read more
Back to the gym today

I did it, I made it to the gym today. Yay for me! Since the weather has not been favorable for running outside, and as my day yesterday was hijacked by all kids of little errands and jobs, I started my time at the gym on the treadmill. 2.... Read more
First day with personal trainer
Thursday, January 14, 2016      2 comments

Today was my first day back at the gym with my personal trainer. I've been working with him on and off for about nine years now, but it's been a while. Thankfully, he took it a little easy on me today, saying "I don't want to make you so sore ... Read more

I haven't done much running at all since I did the Half Marathon months and months ago. Life got hectic, the holiday season hit and for my business, that's when it gets crazy. So I haven't done much in the way of running, or even serious exerc... Read more

Yesterday, I went to the gym and signed up for some personal training sessions with the trainer I've worked with before. Yay! I think this is a good thing, because I don't always know what to do with myself at the gym, plus this will add accou... Read more

I can't believe how long it has been since I've been here. And how many pounds I've added to myself. Really and truly it's not terrible, about 15 lbs more than I want to have, but still... I need to get back on track to stop this uptick in my ... Read more

My sister is in town for the week, and we're having a great time. She's also acting as my fitness guru, seeing as she has been actively running for at least 20 years, dances, trains with weights, and so on. She knows much more than me about al... Read more

I just noticed the date of my last blog entry. July 14, 2012. Has it really been 9 months? Holy cow! Sorry about that folks, I guess life just got the better of me. So, how am I doing? For the most part, really good! I'm still doing m... Read more
Race Report: Go Girl Trail Run
Saturday, July 14, 2012      1 comments

This morning I competed in a 10k+ race. I guess the "+" means it was a bit more than 10K but they don't say exactly how much more. That's OK though, I don't mind LOL. ... Read more

Wow, it's amazing how much "being busy" can throw you off your routine. I used to go to the gym 3x per week. I used to run 3x per week. I haven't done that in quite a while. I know I used to love doing it, I know I felt better for it. S... Read more

Am I a weather wuss?

I'll be the first to admit this: I don't like being cold. Being cold sucks! And since I'm petite and at my goal weight, I get cold easily. So is it any wonder that I hate going out to run when the weather is less than 75 degrees? This m... Read more

I know I've not blogged in a long time. In fact, it's been a while since I worried about tracking my food and my fitness. On Easter Sunday (April 24), I woke up with a nasty case of flu. Not stomach flu, but real, honest-to-goodness flu. ... Read more
