November Goals...
Wednesday, November 03, 2010      1 comments

I’m still struggling to get a handle on fitting exercise into my crazy life. Though, like everyone else, I notice constantly that my life is less crazy when I exercise. Logically, I understand this, but by the time I get home at the end of the d... Read more
Getting back on track?
Friday, October 15, 2010      2 comments

After over a month of long hours at work, hectic weekends, and insane stress, life should be getting back to normal now. But what is normal? I didn't have a good routine before, so I'm feeling a little extra lost right now. They say ... Read more

I had mixed results with my September goals... I'm happy to report that I've saved Sundays. The last three weeks, I've made a fun half-time meal, and we've just relaxed and watched football. I walk the dog, play with the baby, and start th... Read more

With DH heading back to work in a week, we're evaluating our schedules and trying to figure out how to get everything done. Plus, as it's been almost 4 months since we've had to deal with dropping the baby off before work and picking her up afte... Read more

Sunday, August 29, 2010      4 comments

Am I the only one who thinks that the "real" new year comes when the leaves turn? I'm all for resolutions every January, but my real self-evaluations come in the Fall. This year, I need to deal with the following: * Better planning, ... Read more
The Weekend: A Woman Without a Plan
Monday, August 23, 2010      1 comments

Does anyone else fall apart on the weekends? During the week I can keep it all together. I bring breakfast, lunch, and healthy snacks with me to work, and we've gotten great at preparing healthy (usually grilled) meals for dinner. On the w... Read more

Things are looking up...
Monday, August 09, 2010      1 comments

A huge issue, as I've been working to achieve a healthier lifestyle, has been my husband. He's supportive, loves me no matter what I look like, knows that I'm a happier person when I get in a run, but he's also my number one excuse for avoiding ... Read more
Can't take the heat...
Friday, July 09, 2010      0 comments

Is it wrong to be looking forward to fall, when summer has just barely started? A week into this heat wave (which has no end in sight) and I'm losing momentum. I can't walk the dog in this weather, and without her to motivate me when I get... Read more
Back in my pants!!
Wednesday, June 30, 2010      0 comments

Eight months after having my daughter, I'm finally back in my pre-baby pants. Sadly, they fit just like they did before I had the baby, which means I still have work to do. But for today, I'm just going to enjoy having a little extra varie... Read more
A Little Extra Motivation...
Friday, June 11, 2010      0 comments

...because I clearly need more motivation than just squeezing into my pre-baby pants. I realized this morning that not only is my 15-year high school reunion this fall, but I also have to renew my driver's license and will be stuck with th... Read more
Consistent??? Me???
Tuesday, June 08, 2010      5 comments

Last week, I received a Spark trophy for consistency. No one could have been more shocked than me. I am, shall we say, the least consistent person ever when it comes to exercise and nutrition. I begin with the best of intentions, but then ... Read more

First, the lemons: My husband has injured his knee. Again. The surgery to correct the issue has become practically routine in our household, though this is the first time we'll experience it since the baby was born. But there is a bright s... Read more
5K Success!!
Monday, April 26, 2010      1 comments

I had my second 5K of the season on Saturday, and I am feeling great about it! At the first race of the year, I had been unable to train AND it was insanely hot. Not the greatest combo! I walked about half of that race, and had the lousy ti... Read more
Running Lunches
Friday, April 16, 2010      4 comments

I did my first "running lunch" this week, and it was a huge success! On the advice of a co-worker, I drove to what can only be described as a hidden gem in our city: a trail that runs down the center of a tree lined boulevard. The path is d... Read more
