Tuesday, June 11, 2013      5 comments

Sometimes it seems that the harder I work, the more things go wrong. Okay, that's a bit dramatic, but I am frustrated at myself. I went to the dentist yesterday for a routine cleaning. They had told me in September that I needed to have my wi... Read more

My Story: Letting Go of the Past
Sunday, June 02, 2013      5 comments

Moving Forward
Wednesday, May 29, 2013      5 comments

I have to pull myself out of this. Two years of circling in this depression and self destructiveness is more than enough. I have made progress but lately it is two steps forward and one and a half back. I do so well for a few days and then ca... Read more

Today I did week 6 day 1 of the C25K. I struggled with this workout. After running for 20 minutes without walking on Saturday, this workout went back to alternating running and walking. I thought it would be easy, but it wasn't. Part of my p... Read more
Sprains, Heartbreak and WooHoo!!!
Saturday, May 04, 2013      2 comments

I have not been on the last couple of days for a couple of reasons. First, I can't get a computer at home. Right now I am using the old laptop that is about dead. The screen is a psychodelic swirl of colors and I can barely see what I am typi... Read more
