30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 4
Q. What are (or were) your fears about weight loss?
A: Honestly, when I first read this question, it seemed silly to me. But after I thought about it, I guess I'm afraid that once I am fit/healthy, I'll have loose sagging skin that will re... Read more
WOO HOO RACE RESULTS!
I set the bar very low today. My goal was to NOT finish second to the last in my age group, as I had the last race I ran (which was actually an improvement over the race I ran before).
I finished 27th out of 40 women in my age group; I fee... Read more

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 2
Q. How did you pick your goal weight? Did you pick an ultimate goal weight at the beginning of your weight loss? Did it change? Did you set smaller goals along the way?
A. I have not necessarily chosen a goal weight. I'm going to just keep... Read more

Next Week's Goal - Be the Data Queen!
Starting today, I'm going to be hypervigilant about recording my data. Something is really keeping me stuck here, and I swear I'm determined to figure out what it is.
I've been a bit sloppy about recording my nutrition, and have not been r... Read more
Darn it all anyway
So, I came back from my run yesterday - a not so great run; my stopwatch quit about 3/4 of the way through, it was uncomfortably hot, and I was feeling like my "get up and go" got up and went. I just couldn't seem to find that place where you ge... Read more
Too Many Directions
Yup. As I had feared, life is creeping in. I'm in the 3rd week of the 28 day fitness bootcamp. I was doing great with completing the 7-10 minute videos, and keeping up with the 30 minutes of cardio every day; either running with the 5K Your Way ... Read more
Need a Break from You, Mr. Scale
I just can't help myself. It's like I'm addicted to stepping on the scale. I've been working so hard at everything, it seems, and that stupid jerk has not given me any inkling of reward.
I can not possibly exercise any more. I can not poss... Read more
I'm so glad I got my wanna-be lazy butt out of bed this morning to go for a run before hub left for work. It's now raining.

Starting to Feel "Life" Creeping In
Next week, my 2nd grader starts back to school. Already, I'm getting invites to help people with this and that, and go to meetings for Girl Scouts and things. I just signed up for Curves and wondered how I was going to make that fit into my sche... Read more
I Hate Exercise.
I do hate exercise. Always have. But, I am enjoying trying new things.
I'm finding some things wretchedly impossible to get along with (TRX), some I like more then others (Kettlebells was okay). I'm just waiting for that magical day when I'... Read more
Kettlebells at 5AM
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
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?
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
