I've decided that there are two kinds of drivers: (1) Gives pedestrians more than enough room. This kind of driver slows down when passing a runner, and stops if necessary to protect the runner while yielding to oncoming traffic. (2)... Read more
What did I just do???
Sunday, April 03, 2011      7 comments

I just signed up for a half marathon. It's in Portland, Maine, along a beautifully scenic route. It's at the beginning of October, so the weather should be good and I have plenty of time to train. It's 6 months from today, actually. ... Read more
San Antonio Success!
Saturday, March 26, 2011      2 comments

I'm back home now, after 4 days in sunny San Antonio. A great city, and I was excited to visit! The conference was fantastic, so I'll be busy implementing new ideas at work too! I left with the goal of exercising every day, and eating as w... Read more
Starting a new streak...
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      1 comments

I started 2011 with high hopes and tons of motivation. I’m big on New Year’s resolutions, and was determined to actually keep mine this year. I made it about halfway through February, with a 36-day exercise streak and a 3 lb loss, before I hit t... Read more
First 5K of the year...
Sunday, March 20, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday was my first 5K of 2011. I've recently been dealing with an ankle/knee problem (the ankle is the problem, but when I run I compensate by putting extra pressure on the knee...), and I wasn't sure how it was going to go. I've been unable... Read more
MARCH... Getting back on track!
Sunday, February 27, 2011      2 comments

So, February kind of sucked. I had so much momentum heading into the new year, had a 36 day exercise streak, was eating great and sleeping... and then February happened. February was rough around here. Between the cold, the snow, and... Read more
Need To Regroup...
Sunday, February 20, 2011      1 comments

It's been a rough couple of weeks. I've been absolutely exhausted... that "fighting something" kind of tired, that just saps your energy and makes it impossible to get more than the bare minimum done. This finally culminated in getting an obnox... Read more
My 28-Day Exercise Streak (and still counting...)
Sunday, January 30, 2011      5 comments

One of my New Year's resolutions was to find more time to exercise. I've been failing miserably at this since going back to work after maternity leave. There didn't seem to be a good time in my day to squeeze in a workout, if I was going to meet... Read more
Stressing Less
Friday, January 07, 2011      2 comments

I've got the month from Hades coming up. Deadlines for multiple projects, one after the other, or (my personal favorite) all on the same day. Oddly enough, though, I'm feeling ok about it. My first step was to create a strategy. I decided ... Read more
My One Resolution
Thursday, December 30, 2010      4 comments

In 2011, I truly have only one resolution: to live healthier. I have lots of ideas of how to get there, and a few goals I’d like to accomplish, but it truly all boils down to just being healthier. To be my best, I need to lose just a... Read more
Cold Weather Running -- HELP!!!
Saturday, December 11, 2010      2 comments

I had my first cold weather run of the season today, and while the running was AWESOME, now it seems that every single muscle in my legs has cramped. It was only about 35 outside -- so certainly not insanely cold, as New England goes. I ha... Read more
Secret Sparking...
Thursday, December 09, 2010      5 comments

I've been encouraging DH to join Spark People, because his diet and exercise need a bit of an over-haul (and it would be great to achieve these goals together!), but he's been reluctant. His doctor told him yesterday that his weight is aggravati... Read more
December Goals...
Wednesday, December 01, 2010      2 comments

This month, I need to focus on goals other than exercise. I haven't been the healthiest person lately -- the Cold of Doom is still lingering! -- so I'm going to use this time to focus on other healthy habits. I'll begin working in exercise as I... Read more
Remember when the holidays were fun?
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      1 comments

For the past few years, I've faced the holidays with dread. Right around Thanksgiving, life becomes exhausting -- put the tree up, take the tree down, write and send cards, shop like crazy (and inevitably buy the "wrong"gifts), wrap said gifts, ... Read more
Little Reward: New Jammies!
Friday, November 05, 2010      3 comments

Ok, this is probably silly... but I love pajamas. Almost as soon as I get home from work (after walking the dog, feeding the baby... ), I want to be showered and in my comfy jammies. But, since most of my pajamas were pre-weight loss (and ... Read more
