Kettlebells at 5AM

Monday, August 06, 2012      3 comments

I'm trying new things in an effort to stay active over the winter, and 'mix it up' here. This morning, I got up at 4:30 AM to go to the rec center and do a Kettlebells class at 5am. Why so early? Well - I was just seeing how it would go to... Read more

2nd 5K This Year - I Could Become an Addict

Sunday, August 05, 2012      3 comments

I actually got my husband to 'run' a 5K race with me. No small feat. He likes riding his bike. He doesn't 'get' my running. He was anxious that he wouldn't be able to run any of the 5K. We started out walking. There was a very old man in fr... Read more

Anybody else tried TRX?

Friday, August 03, 2012      6 comments

I did today. It was hard as hell. 1/3 of the exercises, I couldn't even wrap my head around long enough to fathom how to get into the right position. The instructor was very kind and patient with me. She told me I did a great job, and followed i... Read more

I was right

Friday, August 03, 2012      7 comments

I do feel very silly for my last blog entry. I've used my new shoes twice and they are HEAVEN for my feet. After running in them only twice, my knee pain has disappeared. Amazing. And, today celebrates my having completed day 7 of the 28 d... Read more

Can't believe I did it.

Thursday, August 02, 2012      6 comments

Feeling just a twinge of buyer's remorse today. I actually paid more for one pair of shoes yesterday than I've paid for shoes for myself in the past two years. I went to a real runner's store and bought a real pair of running shoes, a... Read more

Oh, Snap.

I was looking at the calorie counts at Panera for 1/2 chicken cobb salad, and ordered a whole; 570 calories. Also ate 1/2 of my kid's grilled cheese sandwich. But, it could be worse. I had a great breakfast, healthy snack (apple and trail ... Read more

Boo - bad nutrition day.

I just entered all of the food I ate yesterday at dinner, and I went over my calories by 300. Bah.... Read more

Yay! Won my Sleep Challenge Trophy!

Saturday, July 28, 2012      5 comments

I was so excited to get my sleep challenge trophy. I feel such a sense of accomplishment. It was a really great decision for me to start there, as it seems to have been quite a foundational problem. Once I made changes prompted by that challenge... Read more

That Mean, Evil Scale

Saturday, July 21, 2012      7 comments

That cotten headed ninny muggins is really honking me off. I swear, I am officially ignoring her for the next 7 days. On the up side, I walked a 5K with my friend today - the first of my life. We signed up for the 1 mile walk, got to the ma... Read more

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jog

Thursday, July 19, 2012      3 comments

So glad I beat the rain this morning...and my kids waking up! Even though I stayed up an hour past my new 'bedtime', I still got up early enough to enjoy a 30 minute jog around the neighborhood. It's been quite a while since I ran the route I di... Read more

Yay! Great dream last night!

Monday, July 16, 2012      0 comments

I've been running a lot lately. An incredible amount, in fact. It's pretty easy to do while visiting my Mom here on Put-in-Bay island. She is happy to stay with the kids while I go out for however long and run/jog/walk. And she is a very encoura... Read more

Welcome Back, Old Friend

Saturday, July 14, 2012      6 comments

About 3 years BC (before children), which in real terms amounts to 10 years ago, I lost 30 pounds running. I'm not really an athletic person, never have been - I'm more of the 'artsy fartsy' type. But for some inexplicable reason, I took to runn... Read more

Change of Environment Makes a Difference!

Thursday, July 12, 2012      4 comments

I've been 'vacationing' at my Mom's house on Put-in-Bay island since last Friday, and I'm amazed at what a difference the change in environment has made. I've run every morning since I've been here. I've become a running FOOL! This morning... Read more

What's Up With the User Name Change?

Saturday, July 07, 2012      8 comments

For the past decade, I consistently used the same username whenever I would join a group or sign up for things online. I adopted TOWEROFSHELLY in honor of one of my favorite Bible verses, Proverbs 18:10 - The name of the Lord is a strong tower; ... Read more

Choosing an Excuse or Creating an Opportunity

Friday, July 06, 2012      0 comments

Last night, I planned to get up early (while Hub was getting ready for work and kids still sleeping) and quietly meet the One Day Challenge; go for a walk. But it wasn't my alarm that awoke me. It was two big, blue eyes and a the chipmunk ... Read more
