The Zombies have failed...
Saturday, January 26, 2013      0 comments

The Zombie app turns out to be more irritating than helpful, but I got out and ran today anyway and found that I am more motivated by beating lap times than anything else right now so I am making that my focus. I ran a personal best for lap two ... Read more

It was freezing this morning! I was afraid I was going to slip on the ice on the road but my shoes held true and I managed to finish the workout. I feel like I am doing well and have already started to see some benefits to the running. I can't w... Read more
Spark Coach - Assignment
Friday, January 18, 2013      0 comments

So I am suppose to talk about what excuses that I make to get out of exercising and I think the most detrimental mistake I make when it comes to exercising is telling myself I will do it later, knowing that the best time for me to get it out of... Read more
Zombies, Run! 5k - Day 1
Thursday, January 17, 2013      0 comments

Ok, so today I learned that the Zombies, Run! app is not fool proof and my 32 minute workout turned into a 79 minute workout because the app stalls when my phone goes to sleep and since I had my phone in my pocket it took me a while to figure it... Read more

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      0 comments

So, I downloaded the zombie 5k app to motivate myself to at least be able to jog the 5k in March. I have to get a new pair of running shoes as the last pair have seen better days. I have not done a running program like this before but this is su... Read more
Another New Beginning...

Well, here I am again, ready to give a little more of myself to exercise and healthier eating. I have been out of the game for a while and am renewing my interest. I feel lucky to have only gained back 5 pounds in the last year. I am ready to lo... Read more
Last Training Day
Wednesday, September 21, 2011      0 comments

I have mixed emotions about today. It is my last training day before my first ever 5k walk. I feel like I am doing so much more than I thought possible just over a month ago and now am excited about the event. I signed up for the walk program b... Read more
Getting Excited
Sunday, September 18, 2011      1 comments

I am only a little more than a week away from my first 5k and am really excited to do well. I don't have a time in mind at this point, I just want to finish a little faster than my previous time even if only by seconds. I have had a little ... Read more

Today was difficult. I am not sure why but I could barely manage a 40 minute walk and didn't have the energy to even attempt any jogging. I don't feel sick and nothing has changed for me that would make me think "oh that's why" but I just couldn... Read more
It's becoming a habit...
Thursday, September 08, 2011      0 comments

I never thought I would be the person who goes to bed early because I want to get up and exercise. The I want to exercise is the most shocking part for me. I am still new and I am probably still in the honeymoon phase of this new routine but it ... Read more

On my morning walk the other day I saw the cutest raccoon kits. I stopped and watched as Mom raccoon scooted the kits up a tree then took a battle stance on the ground practically daring me to take a step closer. I of course took a couple of pic... Read more
My dog slows me down
Friday, September 02, 2011      5 comments

I use to love walking my dog, but that was before I was training for an event. I walked with a friend the other day and because she is newer to exercise she only walked half-way with me so to keep her company while I finished my walk she kept th... Read more
I had a bad day...

So, today I pick up the pieces from a complete downhill slide yesterday. I went to the movies with the full intention of having a small un-buttered popcorn as a scheduled less than healthy splurge and that turned into a complete binge day full o... Read more

It has certainly been a while since I wrote last and I have made some changes since that time. I am now a full fledged pet groomer with a year of experience behind me. I have gained a few die hard fans which feels good and makes the hard days ea... Read more
