Thursday, September 22, 2011      3 comments

I attended a work lunch last week and, of course, it comes up when people hear me order the salad - without the shrimp and no cheese, please and can I have the dressing (which I'm assured isn't mayo or cream based) on the side... So, yes, I ass... Read more
11 days and counting...

I'm really enjoying this new way of eating. I've found that a key to success is definitely planning and preparing. Its pretty tough when you find yourself with very few options. I spent a good deal of yesterday cooking ahead for this week. ... Read more
Feeling Good About Things
Thursday, March 12, 2009      5 comments

So... I bought the Engine 2 Diet book because I was concerned about Rob's heart health and both of our weights. I really haven't let it out my sight since I got it. I love the information in this book. Every chapter seemed to be an "AHA" moment... Read more

So I finally did it last night... I sold the little Ninja. I've battled with this for a while because I like that little bike and its been great for letting people practice on. However, it mostly just sits in the garage while the other bikes ri... Read more
Mom and Me!

My mom turned 81 yesterday! I was lucky enough to get to have tea with her and hang out a little bit in the afternoon. I wish there were some way to convey how fantastic and courageous and wonderful this woman is! (She was a warbride, do... Read more

Happy Birthday to Irwin!!! 85 years old and you know what he wanted for his birthday??? A bike! Isn't this what we're all working for? To age in such a way that when you turn 85, you feel like getting a new bicycle!?! There is a quote by Cl... Read more

Wa hoo!!!! I'm so excited. I ran FOUR miles!!! I've gotten close before but I've never actually done it. This has only been a dream of mine. And it came true. I am just so happy that I don't know how to express it. Running is such a strang... Read more
I lived!!!!

It felt doubtful for a while but I pulled out of it!!! Who knew that a simple cold could reek so much havoc??? While it didn't ruin Valentine weekend, it certainly put a damper on it. Thursday evening ended early because I thought my head might ... Read more
I ran for 30 minutes!!!!
Friday, January 11, 2008      5 comments

I'm not a loser. I can run! Sort of. Run slow ;) but I can do what I set out to do and that is such an awesome, wonderful feeling. Today's goal was to run for 30 minutes. That's all. Purposely keeping it slow to be able to run for 30 minutes. ... Read more
This running thing...
Tuesday, January 08, 2008      2 comments

Am I a runner? Am I not a runner? Can I do this thing? Should I just find something else that I could enjoy and have success with? These are my questions of late. I’ve been so disappointed and discouraged with my inability to run any distance. ... Read more
Looking forward to starting over!

We've had a wonderful, happy, indulgent couple of holiday weeks and I couldn't be happier. I could be fatter - I have been - but probably not by much and I'm okay with that. I weigh less than I did a year ago at this time and have so much knowl... Read more

I love oatmeal and apples and its so easy. It totally solves the what's for breakfast question every day. AND its so healthy. I don't know why everyone isn't eating it. Its great for work, too. At home, I mix 1/2 cup of oatmeal with two table... Read more

I did it!!! Finished another 5K and improved my time by two minutes. This was the women only Making Strides for Breast Cancer race. It was pretty cool to be running with all women. The temp was 47 degrees when we started running at 8 a.m. - ... Read more

Monday, September 24, 2007      1 comments

I've been so worried. I ran the 5K but since then... I don't know what to say. I haven't been able to drag myself out of bed in the morning to continue the running thing and by afternoon, it's too warm or there are too many things going on that... Read more
