Learning when to back off
Sunday, June 07, 2015      8 comments

I've noticed the last couple of weeks my husband has been struggling and starting to backslide. He's eating in secret, doesn't want to go for runs and then getting frustrated cause he is starting to gain weight. I pointed out that he's been d... Read more
Starting to feel like home

These last couple of days I've finally started to feel like our new house is home, I think Paisley spitting up on the carpet and Peyton spitting up on the loveseat helped a little :) It's been a fun day, I started with a great 6K walk wi... Read more

As mysterious as my back pain came on it's now almost completely gone. I was able to get out of bed without wincing, ran up and down the stairs and even hopped on my stepper for a bit today. Tonight I think I'll go for a hike. I'd love to go ... Read more

It's finally raining! I want to go for a run, I love running in the rain! My back is still killing me, I'm sure a run in the rain will heal everything...right? I refuse to let this pain sabotage my leap from the plateau! My body is already... Read more
Oh that's not what I want to see on a run!

Today we did another 5K, I was a little concerned because I put my back out yesterday and thought the pain would stop me but I guess I'm bit more stubborn that I thought. We weren't able to reduce our time but the hike was also a bit harder than... Read more

When I train people my pet peeve is when they say "I will try to do my best". I know that means that they will kinda, sorta try and if they fail that's ok cause gosh, that was their best. My teams know that we don't use that phrase, we say I ... Read more
Maybe it ended...maybe not?

This week I stepped on the scale and was 2 pounds lighter which puts me back .5 a pound heavier than when my weight mysteriously jumped up and stayed there. Does this mean that the plateau is ending or that it just found a new happy place to... Read more

Today I took two short breaks and used both of them to work out. The first I spent in my office on my stepper. I love that thing! The tension bands add a great upper body workout and after half an hour I really feel like I accomplished som... Read more

Yesterday I decided to take a look at ways to trim our grocery budget. Where we live now there are lots of great places to buy fresh, local produce which I love and I have immediately noticed that we're spending so much less on it. Since we b... Read more

It was hike time and my husband and I headed up to do the Grind. Last year was the first time we had ever done it, 6.5 hours it took us to complete. This year we did it in 3.5 hours. Now that's what I call a non-scale victory! It felt so good... Read more

My workout corner in my office is set up and this morning I started my day with half an hour of yoga before work. It felt great to get the creaks and cracks out of my body before sitting at my desk. Looking out across the valley while the sun... Read more

Yesterday after work I headed out for another new hike with my husband. We found a great trail about 20 mins from us but it's much longer than what we had time to complete. We hiked for 2 hours. Along the way we helped each other up huge boul... Read more

Some days I look in the mirror and I feel like I'm bigger than I was 98 pounds ago. In other words I'm normal. I think part of weight loss and gain is denial. As we gain we find excuses, we alter our clothing to hide tummies and hips. B... Read more

This weekend we had to change plans, Jeff really wasn't feeling well and doing The Grind would have been a bad idea. He did try, he got dressed and announced he was ready to, I took one look at his pale face with bright red cheeks and banished h... Read more
It doesn't change who we are

I've never believed that weight loss would change who I am. No matter what the scale says or what size I have to take I still treat people the say, I still have the same ethics and I still have the same hopes and dreams. What it did change wa... Read more
