Things have been going well since I got back on SP. I haven't eaten gluten since February 23, and I'm giving up sweets for Lent. I've been good with sweets. I'm getting all my steps in and going for runs 3 times a week. I'm drinking Slim & Sassy... Read more

Wow...It's been 8 1/2 months since my last post. Since I was last active on SparkPeople. That makes me very sad. I love this site and the motivation it brought me. I left last summer because it was too hard to track all of my meals. I was on an ... Read more

I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted! Things have been really busy. I had final papers and exams, then I had to move back home from college. I have gone on an elimination diet to cure my eczema and teach myself to eat more clean ... Read more
New Goals

Like so many other people, I bought the Spark Solution. It inspired me to re-evaluate my goals. Most of the goals on my page have become habits. I just check, check, check at the end of the day. Hooray! That's great! Unfortunately, by not updati... Read more

Today I ran my second 5k. It was hard, I was tired, sore for some unknown reason, and I may have not waited long enough after lunch. I really wanted to go at 8 this morning, but the gym doesn't open until noon on Sundays. But I pushed through an... Read more

Lately, I've been working really hard on getting enough exercise in. I achieved my goal to reach 1000 April minutes (first time I've done that...ever) and I would like to do it again. Past few days, though...I haven't even been hitting 30 minute... Read more

Today is day one of week 4 of my 5k Running training. Today is the day I needed to run for 35 minutes without stopping. I knew I could do 20. I knew that, with two rest days, if there was a day this week I could do it, it would be today. But I w... Read more

So my eczema is still giving me issues. I've read that eczema can frequently be caused by undiagnosed food sensitivities, so the time has come for me to investigate that. The common sensitivities and the foods of those I eat the most are wheat a... Read more

I haven't posted in awhile. Things have been really busy. Lots of school, work, things to do, etc. I haven't been doing superb on the eating front, but I'm committed to making this week better and I have been doing well so far. One thing that ha... Read more
I'm back and ready for April!
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      3 comments

As you all know, March was rough for me. I had to stop running and spring break (plus my anniversary with my fiance) brought a change in schedule that made it hard to keep up with my program. I managed to do something every day in March except t... Read more
Self Control

I am so proud of myself. As I posted, I have not been doing well with food lately, and yesterday was no different. To be fair, the pizza was a margarita pizza and the snacking was on peanuts. But still not great. After having cold pizza for brea... Read more

So, as you know, I have not been running, or really doing any cardio (walking to and from the bar doesn't count, neither does walking through town after sampling different olive oils). I also haven't been good with my food. Bar on Saturday, gian... Read more
Taking a Break
Thursday, March 14, 2013      2 comments

After a lot of thought, pain, and a scolding by my fiance, I have come to a very difficult decision: I am going to take a break from running. My goals to complete a running program and run a 5k? On hold. I will continue to walk, do yoga, and lig... Read more

Tuesday, March 12, 2013      2 comments

Today was my first day on my NEW 5k training plan. As I mentioned in my last post, my goal for the next 5 weeks is to be able to run a 5k straight through. Since the first 3 weeks of this program are the same as the last 3 in my previous program... Read more

I did it! After 9 weeks of training, from having never run before, I ran a 5k. I did it in 35:49, which I am happy with. I predicted that I could probably do it in under 36 minutes, and I did! I had to walk 3 minutes and speed walk another 3, bu... Read more
