I'm getting ready for Monday. I don't want to say Monday is my start day because I know I'll over indulge this weekend and that never helps. This week we had a party at my daughters last girl scout meeting and the next day I felt like crap. ... Read more
2012 Goals
Sunday, January 08, 2012      7 comments

2012: 1. Track every BLT at least 5 days a week. No excuses. Be reasonable the other two days, allowing for one cheat meal. Not a cheat day, not a cheat weekend, one meal. 2. Run a total of 1,000 miles in 2012. (this is ab... Read more
It's Just A 5K!

Well actually it's not, it's a 1/2 marathon. Everytime I think about it I have to remind myself to breathe. My stomach flips and I start getting itchy. (Could this be poison ivy?) Back in June of 2009 I graduated from CT5K with a great g... Read more
Oh, Those Are Cute!

I've worked out with a co-worker during lunch on three occasions in the last two weeks. This girl is much more fit than I am, two years ago when I told her I was thinking of trying CT5K, she told me to just get on the treadmill, set it for 6 mp... Read more
February Results
Tuesday, March 01, 2011      6 comments

Well, this month flew. I was challenged by a nasty head cold and the stomach bug invading just about the entire household. I didn't reach a few of my goals and I'm dissappointed. But it seems fitting that the most important goal for the monht... Read more

January went by so fast I'm afraid it will be spring and I still won't be ready for short sleeves and shorts, never mind bathing suits. I'm putting my goals for the month in writing out here for everyone to see. I was sick the last week of Jan... Read more

We're at the end of a heat wave here and although I don't mind it much, people don't seem to be handling it as well as they might have in July or even August. I think the mindset is, it's September, school is starting, time for cool crisp air. ... Read more

Well it didn't take long for me to have a biking story to tell. Second time out in fact. After Saturday's race and Sunday's long bike ride I was junk on Monday. I went to the fitness center at work but didn't have nothing in me. I did a mile... Read more
I Can't Catch My Breath
Friday, May 28, 2010      4 comments

Last weekend was a challenging one. On Saturday, I took two of the boys to an all day concert which included tailgating and concession food. I did get my fitness class in before we left but I definitely over-indulged. We left the house at 11:... Read more
The Not so Terrific....Terrific Run
Friday, May 07, 2010      5 comments

Today was a glorious day. When I got back from taking the kids to school I updated my status already looking forward to my lunchtime run. Lots of Fridays my run is after work, but today with two baseball games after work it had to be at lunch.... Read more
Right on Her Heels
Sunday, May 02, 2010      5 comments

Today I weighed in 1.5 pounds less than last Saturday. I'm kicking myself for letting last weeks gain throw me off the beaten path so much. I was doing 2 to 3 hours of fitness each day and tracking every BLT (bite, lick & taste). I was determ... Read more
Ooops, I've Got a Hanger

I will always remember the words of a teenage boy as I was walking along the beach with a friend as a pre-teen. He was smiling and whispering to his buddy and as he got closer to us, he yelled JUMP. I knew it was directed at me, even the... Read more
I'm So Vain
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      4 comments

This can be the only explanation for what happened to me this morning. In my regular school day routine I rushed my middle school child to drop off with my shoes untied and coat covering my PJ's. I was parked side-by-side at the drop off area ... Read more
Living Without My Addiction

The scale showed a .8 gain at my last weigh in. Last Saturday my WW leader presented the most timely challenge for me. Hide the scale and stop the daily weighing. Do it for one week. So, off I went. I asked my husband to hide the scale, I'v... Read more
Making Friends With My Head Voice
Monday, March 29, 2010      4 comments

It was one year ago today I started the Couch to 5K program with about 40 other woman in my town. I believe 15 of us graduated and at least 10 of us still run at least three times a week. A year ago I went into the program with a great deal of... Read more
