So I've only done one day of my c25K training. I really NEED to do this tonight. Husband calls and reminds me it is Fall Carnival and we are supposed to meet classmate and parents at 5:30 and then they want to eat out at a pizza place nearby. ... Read more
Well, I know where I can't go for dinner...

Family got in late last night after swim practice. Discussion of the apparel committee and the coaches blasting the kids with an extra tough practice caused us to leave the pool late. Boo fell asleep on the way home. So Dad decided to pick so... Read more
It wasn't a blip! *dances*

So I usually weigh for my "weigh in" on Sundays. When I stepped onto the scale this weekend (after all possible elimination procedures, BUGGIRL19, ahem) it showed I had dropped 2 pounds. Well, I got on and off thinking it was a blip. It still... Read more
The art of motivation

This is what keeps me going. This young man works harder than the average 9 year old to achieve his goals in swimming. He doesn't moan (much) or whine (much) and he shows up ... Read more

Today, our little group picks a new body part to love. This week I am choosing a part that doesn't really see the light of day in normal terms. It's not a part one can see or touch. Today, the part I'm showering with love is my brain. Fi... Read more

The swim meet was a success and I'll post more on that later, hopefully with pictures, if I can find my dang USB cable. My other success was the jeans place. Sad to say, I am still the same size as before. :( However, the saleslady, and ... Read more

So this weekend, we are off to another swim meet. I'm already feeling the nerves for my son. I get so nervous for him, I want him to do well. Sadly, he had been sick and hasn't been able to practice like he normally does. Thanks to some good... Read more

Yesterday, started feeling nauseous, which blew up to full blown ickiness by the time I got Boo from swim practice. I did not do my strength training and barely got my cardio in earlier. *sigh* I hate when Life decides to derail you. So many... Read more
What amazing feet!
Tuesday, October 06, 2009      4 comments

So in honor of my promise to shower love on a body part, I am here to tell you of my love for my feet. These feet, they are cute feet, they had nice smooth heels, and an adorable pedicure and I'd always been rather proud of them. I would s... Read more
Scariest thing about Halloween
Monday, October 05, 2009      4 comments

It's pretty innocent looking as far as pumpkins go. It's not even a jack-o-lantern, just an artsy-fartsy wicker pumpkin with a cute little sprig handle on its lid. It scares the hell out of me! Each year at the office this pumpkin gets d... Read more

I forgot to blog about this the other day. It's been a while since we've been out as a family and hitting one of the more popular restaurants. We usually go to Chili's so we went there Friday night. Now, during that "while" I've been pret... Read more

I took a LONG walk this morning it was so beautiful. 90 minutes walking the stout hills in my neighborhood. LOL, y'all should have heard the conversation going on in my head. Me2: We always go this way, let's go somewhere new. Me: We ... Read more
My body is revolting!!
Friday, October 02, 2009      2 comments

Okay, technically, I guess that should read ... My body is in revolt! Yesterday I did zero cardio other than 10 minutes to stay loose. I missed a day of strength training too. Wednesday I woke up again with cramps so fierce they made ... Read more
Okay, today I feel like I was mauled by a tiger.
Tuesday, September 29, 2009      4 comments

But I survived...I think! So yesterday I said I felt as if I'd grabbed a tiger by the tail. I bumped into the next week of Couch to 5K and the strength training became a little more intense as the knees have agreed to modified squats. Tha... Read more

I am beat. Just past pleasantly so. This week was the beginning of week 4 for Couch to 5K and even though the interval only increased by 1 minute each time, let me tell you...that's one damn long minute! I fought every interval and ba... Read more
