This is more of a public confession, rather than I blog I expect anyone to read :) I've been gone for a while, I know that some of you have missed me and I am working HARD to get realigned and back on track. Positive things I've done latel... Read more

The dreaded Thanksgiving Day is over! Well, I thought it was until I came to work and waxed off a piece of pecan pie and a cup of coffee. Turns out Thanksgiving will linger a little longer than I anticipated. So, I joined our groups goal fo... Read more
Race for Breath 5k Photos
Tuesday, November 04, 2008      2 comments

That's me in the blue (ugh! definitely not looking athletic!!) and my girlfriend is in the black. I had my race number on my outer layer and took it off about 3/4 of the way through so I didn't get a big "final" image, which is probably good be... Read more

It has happened (finally)!! After a couple of months of just taking it easy, yesterday I finally reached my 60 lb goal!! My mini-goal now is to lose the next 8 before Jan 1. It's doable, and I've seriously taken some time off from calorie... Read more
Race for Breath 5k
Saturday, November 01, 2008      1 comments

Well, I've been gone a while! Part of it is that I have not been "dieting." I have been eating a diet that maintains my weight, which means some super yummy foods, but not too much of them!! I was running several times a week, but this mo... Read more
New clothes and a workout...
Thursday, October 09, 2008      2 comments

I needed some inspiration today, so I went to Dick's Sporting Goods to buy a new jogging outfit. It's getting a bit chilly and I had to wear a (gasp!) cotton long sleeve shirt the other night and that just wasn't working out for me. I trie... Read more

So, today I decided to go for a bike ride with my girlfriend and the plan of action was a 30 mile bike ride to the ocean front. The day was absolutely beautiful!! We rode to the beach and stopped to sit on a bench and look at the ocean. W... Read more
My Intervention
Monday, September 08, 2008      4 comments

So, the last few days, I've been BAD. VERY BAD. I've eaten too much bad food (mostly snack food and grazing) and I haven't exercised. Well, the exercise is because of the new tattoo and the burning sensation I get when I get sweaty, so there's ... Read more

Hey Michele..... I just wanted to tell you I hardly even recognized you the other day when you came into work, in regular clothes! I mean, you know our wonderful uniforms are so flattering, and so when I saw you in reg clothes ...i was like wo... Read more

I have to hurry this along, because I've got to get to work, but...I just completed a 5 mile jog at 13 min 27 sec pace. Not great...not horrible!!!!! I was going to try for 6, but (a) I ran out of time before work and (b) I started to fee... Read more
Jogged 4.5 miles today...
Wednesday, August 27, 2008      3 comments

So, as I've been saying, there's nothing like heart ache to motivate you to move. I knew I couldn't just sit on the couch and watch TV (I've grown to dislike TV anyway), so I went out on this beautiful 70-something degree morning and jogged 4.5 ... Read more
Life and our diet.
Tuesday, August 19, 2008      3 comments

Life is really tough sometimes. Things happen and you're filled with a sense of hopelessness or loss. It can really affect how we feel about ourselves. I'm having a time like that...where things aren't going as I planned and relationshi... Read more

I went to my monthly 4WD meeting last night (yes, I go four wheeling yee-haw). I haven't been to a meeting since January. It was so AWESOME when people I haven't seen in six months came up to me and said they had to do a double take when they ... Read more

Thursday, August 14, 2008      1 comments

I've transitioned from jogging on the treadmill to running on the street. I am proof that ANYONE can do this. I mean, I started at 268 and I'm down to about 217 now and I just ran 2.5 miles 30.19 mn, that's a 12.19 min per mile pace!!! I... Read more

So tonight I jogged my first 5k :) That's 3.1 miles!! Yay!! I did it in 39 minutes, so that would be a 13 min mile pace. Not horrible :) My next goals are to keep it up and make the entire jog enjoyable. That last .6 miles was killing me. ... Read more
