I went shopping for another pair of running shoes on Tuesday night. Came home with Nike Air in the same size I bought 4 years ago. I went to the running specialty shop because I wanted to get a pair of gloves, possibly a light to run at night,... Read more

It's definition is " The strength of will to carry out one's decisions, wishes, or plans." That is courtesy of The American Heritage dictionary. If it means to carry out one's wishes, aren't most of us wishing for a healthier life? Then wh... Read more

Well, my cardio was down from my usual this week and it was reflected in a .5 weight gain. UGH! I did stay within my calorie range, so is the drop in cardio the only reason why? Did some of my muscle convert to fat, as I am continuing to ... Read more

I went shopping last night. There was no Halloween candy in the house yet, my choice, and I needed to get a pair of khakis to work at the University Football game. I went to Sam's Club. They sell almost everything. So I bought four pair of p... Read more

I know I should take better care of my teeth. I brush them daily-can't stand that film inside my mouth when I wake up. It's usually the first thing I do when I get up. But flossing? When I was growing up, I did see the dentist regularly. B... Read more
Beautiful Day (as U2 sings)for a 10K.
Sunday, October 25, 2009      8 comments

I committed to run a 10K as one of my goals for the FIWC challenge. The day after I made that goal public, I heard about a 10K race in Charlottesville, not too far from where I live. Could I do it? The distance, probably. Logistics? Probabl... Read more

In the past, my mom has always been my biggest supporter when it comes to me losing weight. She never had a weight problem and being a nurse, was concerned about my health, both mentally and physically. While growing up, she would support just... Read more

Went for a run this past Monday and this evening. Boy, I never ever thought I would say this, but I miss running in the warmer weather. It's not so much the heat and humid temperatures, but it seems so dry and when I am running, I am so thirs... Read more

"Healthy" eating out
Sunday, October 18, 2009      3 comments

After my daughter's soccer game this afternoon, some of the parents wanted to go out for lunch/dinner. Since I had a smoothie for breakfast on the way, but didn't pack any snacks and only water, I was fine with it. A couple of people mentio... Read more

Crossing a threshold
Friday, October 16, 2009      8 comments

Three years ago, I resigned to lose weight through diet and exercise because I did not want to be the "biggest thing at my sister's wedding." I wanted the bride and groom to have that honor. So I successfully did lose a bunch of weight, in fac... Read more
Half way there and living on more than a prayer!

In preparation for the hilly Turkey Trot, I decided I would run a bunch of hills, one of which when I first moved here, I had trouble even biking up and would usually end up walking my bike to the top of the hill. The forecast was for rai... Read more

I have been reading quite a few blogs over the last few days. Some of them I agree with and I share a lot of the same feelings; some which tear at my heart, and I am often at a loss over what to say other than "I am here if you need me."; and o... Read more
