Coming out of my hibernation
Friday, May 31, 2013      0 comments

I'm not making any grandiose plans or promises, but I feel a little like I'm coming out of a major haze or coccoon. A foot injury the Tuesday before Thansgiving has lead to a series of issues plus a way over-scheduled life has kept me from payi... Read more
Why do I crumble when I get home

My lack of tracking, eating poorly and less exercise has caught up with me. Argh. I find that I do pretty darn good at work. Even if I don't pack, I've found a lot of healthy options in our cafe. Most days before I leave work, I have 6-7 gla... Read more

I was doing pretty good yesterday nutrition wise. Also good with exercise. Then it was snack time for the kids and I helped them eat some crackers, which took me over my limit. But as I went to put the last one in my mouth I remembered words ... Read more

One of my "other goals" that I track is not snacking mindlessly in the evening. And last night was the first night in a looooong time that I got to put a check in that box. Woo hoo! I had a funny thought this morning as I was thinking about t... Read more
A few words before the day gets away from me

Ahhhh, morning. I love it! My time to be up before anyone, to read, think, pray, have coffee and, today, to clean up a little cat yak. It's all good. I got some new running shoes yesterday and gave them a test run last evening - about 2... Read more

It has been nearly 3 months since I last wrote a blog. Jeepers. I'm still in the same weight range I was back then. I was in the process of training for my first ever half marathon which I "completed" Dec 16th. I injured my foot about ... Read more
I'm exhausting myself

If I could take all the energy I put toward fussing at myself for the nutrition choices I make each day, I could rule the world. As I was packing my bag for the gym for tomorrow morning, I realized that I will sort of be working off some of the... Read more

So after reading about the importance of setting goals for the millionth time, I thought I might take it into consideration. So I wrote me out some goals - complete with rewards. And I'm feeling pretty stoked about it. In fact I'm on a 3 day ... Read more
Defeated and Victorious
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      3 comments

My husband has taken a second job and works most evenings, so I am home with the 3, 4 & 5 year olds which can be trying at times. The hour-long bedtime process really should count as some kind of cardiovascular workout. Tonight I just feel def... Read more
