It was a crazy weekend. We had Girl Scout Cookie booth sales, and we sold approximately 400 boxes of cookies this weekend. I was just floored that we did that well. Go Girls! This was in pouring rain and HAIL on Friday and Saturday. Saturda... Read more

I ran my first 5k! I even actually JOGGED the WHOLE THING! My partner was awesome, kept me going when I was ready to stop. We did the whole thing in 34 minutes, which isn't bad for two people who haven't a) run a 5k before or b) trained all t... Read more

Congrats to the Crew of STS133! Have to love having a job where you HAVE to stop work to watch the Space Shuttle Launch. Reminds me of when we were out there to watch it launch in person. What an amazing adventure. Nothing like a surge o... Read more

I had to walk up the stairs today because I was late for a meeting and the elevator had just closed as I was walking up. Four flights up to find out the meeting had been moved two flights down. Then back up to the top floor because I had to ge... Read more

Disappointed in myself

So I gained a 1.1 pounds. And I know exactly how I did it, even though I'm eating and exercising, I still keep telling myself that one scoop of ice cream isn't going to hurt, or if I have half of a helping of dinner after I'm done, it's not THA... Read more
Eating is weird now...

It used to be I'd wake up, have coffee around 8, then not eat anything until 1 or 2. Maybe. I'd get home and have dinner sometimes, and that was it. Of course, I see now that I was sabotaging myself, because I wasn't getting ENOUGH calories. ... Read more

I'm getting closer to being able to actually able to JOG at least a whole 5k. I'm nowhere close to being able to RUN the damn thing, but hey, baby steps, right? First being able to jog a whole 5k. Then maybe being able to beat that time. ... Read more

I got myself a Kindle. I've always been an avid reader, AND I tend to read and re-read books until they fall apart. I also read faster than most people I know, I have read the Harry Potter books in less than a day when I first got them. So th... Read more

My legs hurt. Last time I ran, my calves hurt. This time my thighs hurt. What's it going to be next time, my abs? *sigh* Eventually it'll be my shoulders and my sinuses. Meh. Today, out of sheer stupidity, I totally blanked on my ... Read more

All of my favorite workout songs are electronic industrial songs. They have a reasonably steady beat and they're fast, so if you want to keep up with the music you tend to move faster than you are used to. Combichrist - Get Your Body Beat ... Read more

I just ran my 3.71 mile 5k training course in 36 minutes. OMG OMG OMG! That's freaking AWESOME for me. I didn't run the whole thing yet, but I ran more than I did last week, and I ran fasterish than I did. It felt better. AND I feel lik... Read more
Fine. I walked. Meh.

My partner for the 5k I plan on running at the end of February posted on FB that she had walked 4 miles today. *sigh* I couldn't let her WIN. So I went out and walked. I love having someone to motivate me. It's kind of awesome. I... Read more

I'm sick. I have green chunky crap coming out of my body every time I cough. At least my sinuses are reasonably clear.... *sigh* I can't run when I'm like this, cause the asthma kicks in. So I guess it's time to try some new core exercis... Read more
