Yesterday, it was my long run day; I am still running indoors on the treadmill because it is still too cold to run outside (too cold for wimpy me, that is). I was doing the Jeff Galloway week 7 day 4 which was to run 11 miles. I choose to do the... Read more

I went to the gym yesterday for the treadmill workout. I am in some week of the Jeff Galloway Half Marathon training and was thinking it was the day to do the long run. I say some week because I do not even know where I am in my training plan. C... Read more

This morning I clicked on a Biggest Loser ad and signed up just to see what it was like. I was reading a member's blog who was wishing her boyfriend would get on board with healthy eating and exercise. A few people commented and this blogger cam... Read more
