Saturday, January 22, 2011      1 comments

Today marks my 4 year anniversary of the day I started on my getting fit and healthy journey. 1/22/2007 seems so long ago in many ways, but just like yesterday in others. :0) I've done so much and come so far, but on the other hand, I still have... Read more
I am overwhelmed....

I am overwhelmed with gratitude, positive energy and appreciation. My heart is filled with love. I am truly a blessed person. It's hard to put into words just how wonderful I am feeling. I could just burst! LOL January is often a dreary and... Read more
A Newsletter Article I wrote for the new year...

I was encouraged by my running club's President to write 'my story' for the group's newsletter. Sharing that much of myself is challenging for me. It makes me feel vulnerable, but since I did it for the Vermont City Marathon blog in November, I ... Read more

Wednesday, November 17, 2010      2 comments

Normally, I shy away from attention, but having been inspired by so many people, I decided to share my story with more people. When I registered for my second marathon there was an option to be contacted if you wanted to share a "Why I Run" stor... Read more

I'm not much of a writer, but a good friend whose husband is running his first marathon in November is putting together 'an inspiration notebook' as a surprise for him to look at before Marathon Day (what a thoughtful wife!!). I wrote the follow... Read more

Haven't kept to my 'plan' regarding blogging and my nutrition, never mind reaching my target weight, but this post is not about what I haven't done. Nope, this blog is about what I'm about to do. I'm about to run my first MARATHON!! Woohoo!! I ... Read more
September Challenge
Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

In my last blog post, I forgot to mention if I was going to add any new 'rules' to live by or things to focus on in the upcoming month. At the time, I don't think I had anything, but driving home from my book club get together last night, 'it' c... Read more

Again I seem to be getting my second blog post for the month done just under the wire. :0) Actually, I was going to wait to write this because I'm in a bit of a funk today and I prefer to be in a better state of mind when blogging, but a 'rule i... Read more

A little overdue for my first post of the month, but I’ve been thinking about what to write for a few days. This is an emotional topic for me which makes this especially hard. Hopefully I can make some kind of sense…but no promises! “I am ... Read more

Another month, another 2nd blog post getting done just under the wire!! At least I'm sticking to one of my monthly 'tasks'! In my previous post this month, I talked about how I was doing following my 2 'eathing rules'. Well, if I was to give mys... Read more
Progress, not Perfection
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      3 comments

I'm a perfectionist. I admit it. Always have been and probably always will be, but I'm learning to focus on progress and the process versus focusing on the outcome. Two weeks ago, I wrote down two 'rules' I was going to focus on to help me get m... Read more
June ... 6 months into the year...
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      2 comments

Today is the last day of the first 6 months of the year so it's a good point to take a moment (or several) to reflect. I've already posted 2 blogs bringing things up to date and one of my goals was to write updates at least 2x a month and I'm ge... Read more
Catching up ... part 2
Tuesday, June 08, 2010      0 comments

In February and March, I continued to explore outdoor running in the cold. I actually found that as much as I used to love my treadmill, I actually prefer to run outdoors. Who knew?! I’m not getting rid of my treadmill, because it still comes i... Read more
Time to catch up...
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      0 comments

This blog is 5 months overdue. I’d hoped for the new year that I would post more regularly, but obviously that hope has to be adjusted! :0) I believe in making adjustments…I don’t believe in failure or quitting. Those are two words that just don... Read more
