Wednesday, January 04, 2012      2 comments

Ok, that's not meant to be a pun, but it kind of works! I went running on the treadmill for the first time in a long time. It felt really good although I think I pushed myself too hard at the beginning. I did a run/walk for the most par... Read more
First Fitness Goal of 2012
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      1 comments

My first fitness goal of 2012 is to be able to run 5 miles by the end of March. I haven't been running lately, but I'm not starting at zero, so I think this is doable. There is also a 5K at the end of April (the same one I ran last year) so I ... Read more

Sunday, January 01, 2012      3 comments

I've never really been one for setting resolutions, but this year I thought I would take that idea and tweak it slightly. I've been wanting to make changes in my life for a while now and I spent a good part of Decemeber brainstorming some posti... Read more
How is it not Friday yet?
Thursday, December 22, 2011      0 comments

On Tuesday, I thought it was Wednesday. Today I want it to be Friday. I think I want this week to be over, don't you think? This has been such an odd and off week for me. It's kinda slow but all I want to do is sleep and rest and relax... Read more
Hoping for a better today (and tomorrow and the day after that, etc.)
Thursday, December 15, 2011      0 comments

I have had such a rough year. It's been such a challenging time. Most of the challenges have been rewarding, or at least a means to an end. All I really want right now is the opportunity to relax and reflect on what I've learned, what I can d... Read more

I was really looking forward to having 3 weeks off of grad school to get back into a healthy and balanced schedule. I submitted my last paper on Saturday morning, had a terrific weekend with my best friend, and Monday was fine, until 7:30 p.m..... Read more

It's been a long time since I've been active on SparkPeople. I just finished my first semester of graduate school and it was HELL. I wasn't sleeping; I was eating there was no tomorrow. My anxiety was through the roof. I can't even get over ... Read more

Last night I was too tired to run. I spent all day getting excited to run, but when I got home, I wasn't able to do much of anything. This cold has taken its toll on me. I need it to go away so that I can run again and not make a total fool o... Read more
Something's Gotta Give, and It's Not Going To Be My Health!
Monday, September 26, 2011      1 comments

I have become a very busy lady! I am working full time at a job that is 45 minutes away from my house (one-way). I'm still the "new guy" so I still have a lot to learn. I am taking 3 graduate-level classes online in hopes of getting my Maste... Read more
Ugh, being sick sucks!

I caught an awful cold from my nephews last weekend and it kicked me in the pants. It couldn't have happened at a worse time. Work has been busy and I started my online graduate classes this week. Needless to say, I didn't do much other than ... Read more
A Pleasant Surprise

Yesterday I donated blood at the local bloodmobile. As part of the process, they take your iron levels, pulse rate, and blood pressure. I aced all of them! My iron was good (always a good thing for a vegetarian), my blood pressure was great, ... Read more

This has been a very busy week for me. Classes started at the school where I'm working, which is always a stressful time. I am setting up my graduate school stuff, like registering and paying my tuition, and there have been a few snags along t... Read more
Adios 4 pounds!
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      5 comments

I weighed in this weekend...I lost 4 pounds! Woooooo!!! Granted I haven't weighed myself in about a year, so that number could be fantastic or really bad, but I prefer fantastic! It's certainly motivating to know that I'm on the right track. ... Read more
Weighing In Tomorrow
Saturday, September 03, 2011      0 comments

Tomorrow I am going to weigh-in for the first time in a long time. I don't really know what to expect, but I hope it's all good. When I set my starting weight, I picked a number that was close to where I thought I was. Hopefully I was on targ... Read more
