My ear hurts - cue violins
Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

I have an ice pick in my head. Or at least it feels like it. The super boring details (feel free to skip this paragraph) is that I have essentially sprained my jaw. Actually, I'm pretty sure my 3 year old sprained my jaw by running and ju... Read more
The Best Laid Plans, Breakfast, and Other Random Thoughts
Friday, August 10, 2012      4 comments

I got up at 5:45 this morning. It was dark. I was going to run early because I had to be in town at 8:00. I even posted on SparkPeople about checking myself into the looney bin for being up that early. I got in the car to go to the ... Read more

My husband is going to a baseball game with a friend. To ease the pain for my children, we are having a "picnic dinner." It's Kraft Mac and Cheese and a movie. The kids love it. We close the drapes to make the living room into a movie th... Read more

I failed. We went away for the weekend. It was beautiful. I had a lovely time with my family. And I ate like a horse. I was too tender in my improved ways to hold up under the intense pressure of last weekend. Its an important lesson... Read more

It's been one week since the fateful Cleveland weight in. I'm starting to think the scale may have been broken. I weighed in today. My scale says I've lost 9 pounds. In one week. What? That is awesome news. I'm confused, but also, I could... Read more

So, I've been gone for a while, and things have gone downhill, badly. What brought me back? Here's the story and a picture. We went to Cleveland. Sounds glamorous, right? We went to a baseball game. And we got to sit in a suite. A sui... Read more

I think it's time to change my user name. No more Run Run Mama. It's Waddle Waddle Mama time. I'm still putting my shoes on my feet, going to the park and moving down the path. But its not a run any more. I thought it was strange. And ... Read more
Devil Breakfast

I had eggs and hashed brown potatoes for breakfast. I know. Feel free to judge me all you want. The good news: I tracked it, and planned the rest of my day so I can stay within my calorie ranges. The bad news: Eggs and hashed brown... Read more

It was a busy weekend to say the least. I didn't make great choices with food. I didn't really exercise. I feel like a slug. I'm tired. My roof is leaking. My yard is flooding. I have to go on a preschool field trip (my own personal tortu... Read more

Who's in charge?
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      1 comments

Two things: 1. I'm an emotional eater. 2. I have a lot of emotions. As you can imagine, because of this, the size of my behind is not small. I need to stop letting my emotions be in charge. It is that simple. Yet it isn'... Read more
Running Shorts - A tale of unrequited love
Saturday, January 07, 2012      4 comments

As my user name might indicate, I run for exercise. Lately, that may be pushing it a bit. I shuffle along, at a speed somewhat faster than a walk, trying to ignore the urge to lay down on the sidewalk and die. But I'm out there, so I'm beatin... Read more
Blood Work

In my twenties, I went in for a physical and the doctor told me I had high cholesterol. She gave me a speech about cutting back on red meat, etc. And I went home, fried some hamburger, dumped it into some kind of a boxed pasta and enjoyed my d... Read more

Part of the strength challenge this week is to write about exercise. I've written about running before. I run, it's ok most of the time. I've been running a little bit more since the beginning of the 100 day challenge. The big change... Read more

I live in Michigan, which means we've got a boat load of water to enjoy and almost no nice weather with which to do so. Saturday was a perfect summer day, and my family and I went to Lake Michigan to enjoy a day at the beach. I spent weeks wor... Read more
