Why Intermittent Fasting
Saturday, January 11, 2014      15 comments

I came to the reality the other day that I have been on Spark for almost 4 years. What a journey! I have come a long way but I've always given myself some grief that I never reached my goal weight. I was so close...just 5 pounds away. Imagine ru... Read more
Quick Fitness Update
Thursday, August 15, 2013      4 comments

I'm having trouble committing to 30 minutes of cardio 5 days a week. I have increased it from 1 day to 3, so that's a start. Last night's run was brutal like usual (running 3.5 miles when the heat index is in the mid 90's can drain anyone), but ... Read more
Trying to Regain Momentum
Friday, August 02, 2013      8 comments

This July, I broke a record for myself. I logged the least amount of fitness minutes in one month since I joined Spark People. That's an all time low in more than 3 years. I am severely out of shape. I went from having the ability to run 1o mile... Read more
My Evolution

Every now and then, our lives are affected by a deep personal challenge. It could be loss of a job, death of a family member, or some situation that just seems to suck the life out of you. That's what my life has been like the past couple of mon... Read more
The Longest 11 Miles
Sunday, March 10, 2013      6 comments

On Friday evening I mapped out an 11 mile route in my head that I wanted to complete on Saturday morning. The original plan was 13 miles, but I had 2 previous days of standing on my feet all day long, and my back was bothering me, so I thought 1... Read more
My Hidden Talent
Wednesday, February 27, 2013      7 comments

I went to college because I love art. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. I knew a year before I was due to graduate that my major wasn't for me. But when you invest 3 years into something, not to mention, a ton o... Read more
Healthy Cookies
Wednesday, February 20, 2013      4 comments

I don't know what I expected exactly...a cookie with 3 ingredients...how could it possibly work? And how could they possibly taste? Pretty darn good, actually. No butter, no sugar, no flour. If you like cookies, and bananas, than this recipe if... Read more

Harlem Shake

Last night's Kendall Run Club was amazing. They were celebrating their 1 Year Anniversary, and showed all the members of run club a great time. After running 3.5 miles, (in a horrible time) there was a dj in the Sole Runners shoe store, a raffle... Read more
The Start of Something Great
Saturday, February 09, 2013      8 comments

I decided if I'm going to do this marathon thing, I should set goals. Today I ran the furthest I have ever gone. After running 4 miles, I was spent, but when I looked around, I was far from home, basically running alone, and had no choice but to... Read more
Better Off Alone
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      9 comments

Saturday was a test for me. I wanted to see how long it would take for me to run 2 routes. One is 4 miles, and the other is 3.5. 7 miles in total. I woke up feeling really good. My son is usually my running buddy on Saturday mornings. My hubby i... Read more
DreamING, StrivING, DoING!
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      9 comments

I remember the first night I went to run club. I was so excited, thinking I was in good shape. I took off and by the time I got a few blocks into the run, I could barely breathe. Needless to say, I had no choice but to do walk/run intervals. (Th... Read more

I have these jeans They are my favorite pair. Everyone has that one pair that is just their favorite...the one you reach for when you don't know what to wear. Well, mine have been tight, and have gotten comfortable, and before Thanksgiving, they... Read more
20 Gifts to God
Sunday, December 23, 2012      5 comments

For all those that were so deeply saddened by the events that took place in Connecticut over a week ago ( and who isn't?), my pastor passed out this poem today that as a Christian, brought me some comfort. I thought if it had that effect on me, ... Read more
Giving Back May Give Me a Breakdown
Monday, November 19, 2012      9 comments

This Thanksgiving, I felt the need to do something different. My parents live in N.Y. and I rarely see them on Holidays ( well, never, actually). Like every dinner, it consists of myself, my hubby, and 4 kids, plus 2 dogs that smell the feast co... Read more
