Today was one of those glorious days we're lucky to experience here in Portland - it was cold, bracing cold, and windy as heck, but boy that sky.... such a gorgeous blue, bright, brilliant, beautiful to see. And dry! No Rain! WooHoo! Seven ... Read more

I was going to blog this morning, whining and whinging about how horrible yesterday was. See, I woke up and did my weekly weigh-in. I was up nearly 2 lbs, even though I did everything right last week. I hit the gym, I ran, I walked, I ate on pla... Read more

Today is a Penguin toe-sock kind of day. Yes, I'm walking around my floor without my shoes, because Penguin toe-socks should be shared. Tonight, I run. 3.5 - 4 miles... Read more
What drives you?

What drives you? Persistence (I probably drive Karen42Boys up the wall since she revealed her superhero name is Persistah! I LOVE that name, truly, and refer to her as that a LOT because she is raw awesomeness). Patience. Determination. Wa... Read more
For you..

Tonight wasn't anything special, but in a way it was. I went for a run tonight. The rain had slacked off enough that I was able to get outside. I ran my usual route, through the neighborhood, down to the gym with an extra block thrown in to make... Read more

I was on a mini-streak clear up until Thursday last week. I had gotten out to run on each scheduled day and gotten my mileage in. And then Thursday came along and we started our quest to add another puppers to the family and I allowed myself.. c... Read more

That's been my reaction lately for a couple of ah-ha moments. Para-dear posted a blog lately about her foray into juicing, and the nifty re-use cup she got from Target. It reminded me that we'd picked up similar cups not long ago, complet... Read more

D*mn it's windy out. Did I just.. grrrr.. hit the wrong button. Start podcast over. Headwind! For the love of Pete, it's not cloudy out. C'mon Garmin, get with it! Ouch! Someone had too much last night (this upon seeing a ca... Read more
Looking forward..

As I read around various blogs from different team streams, I'm coming to realize that.. while I feel as if I'm the only one in the world who had a crappy year, lb-wise, it's just not true. I've been fortunate that as a total year, I've released... Read more
Of peace and joy..

It's time. Time to find and embrace the inner peace that I've somehow lost or misplaced. Last night, I met with other SparkPortland team mates and we volunteered our time at the Oregon Food Bank. For me, it was a pivotal experience. It was... Read more
Small steps...

How often have we hard that? Take the first small step. It'll be the start of a wonderful journey, but you must take that first step. I'm a'steppin'. Yesterday, we had a small departmental pot-luck for lunch. We had lots of good food... Read more

10 lbs. That's the net pounds I've released this year. 10 I've let go as much as 20, but gained back 10, from last December to this December. 10 I posted a blog earlier this year that speaks to where my mind is right ... Read more

I know, I haven't reported on the Hot Buttered Run, and I'm sorry about that. It was a good 5K experience, and it was nice to get back to a fun run instead of a stressful event. It was neat, too, to run into Kashmir and KEakman and other running... Read more
