Let's make the rest of 2014 count!

Monday, November 24, 2014      8 comments

It would be so easy just to write off this last month of the year. Especially with the holidays. Especially with being pregnant. I really kind of checked out for a few days. It started Thursday, and went right on through the pint of Ben and Jerr... Read more

Monday, November 17, 2014      10 comments

Saturday I started in my first half marathon. I've been training for this sucker since about mid-August. I put in the miles and the training time and I was ready to go and also just ready to have this thing completed and no longer looming over m... Read more

Exciting times!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      12 comments

I have no idea how one gracefully goes about announcing these things, so here we go: I'm pregnant! Say hello to Fergus the Fetus. It's still pretty early, I'm not d... Read more

I finished something!

Monday, November 03, 2014      7 comments

Well, ok, I still have the actual race to do, but I officially finished my half marathon training yesterday with a ten mile walk! This Saturday I'll probably do a little four or five mile taper, but the hard stuff is finished! I don't know that ... Read more

Weekend catch up

Monday, October 27, 2014      7 comments

My weekend was filled with super quiet, and super excitement! Saturday I took as a full on rest day. Between exercising during the week, half marathon training and general housework/chores, I hadn't had a real day off in close to three week... Read more

Girls Gone Strong Results

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      5 comments

I forget if I mentioned it, but a month ago my gym started a self guided challenge called Girls Gone Strong. Basically, you picked a muscle group you wanted to work on and a pre-assessment was done. Three reps of the highest weight you could mai... Read more

26 days to go, one more long walk.

My ticker has informed me there are only 26 days until my half marathon. Let me tell you guys; I am so ready to get this thing over with. My best friend is doing it with me and we had our next to last big walk yesterday. Nine miles. Nine. Flippi... Read more

Change in Plans

Thursday, October 16, 2014      8 comments

So. I just sent my nutritionist a big fat break up email. I got my first bill for what my insurance doesn't cover and it was $200 for three visits! My poor little HSA account can't take that kind of abuse. I can't only put in $200 a month as it ... Read more

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round

Monday, October 06, 2014      9 comments

Until they fall off. (I'm giving you fair warning now, there is some non-graphic lady parts discussion below, if that's something you'd rather not read.) The wheels kind of fell off my bus this weekend. Looser habits have been kind of creep... Read more

Thoughts From the Office Bathroom Mirror

Friday, October 03, 2014      11 comments

Isn't it funny how much a neckline can change how you look? I'm wearing a fairly wide, scooped neckline shirt. It's a bit like a pheasant top. If it wouldn't be totally embarrasing to get caught at it, I'd take a selfie for reference. As I... Read more

Has anyone used the Vivo Fit?

Saturday, September 27, 2014      4 comments

My FitBit is probably going to hear this and disown me! Does anyone have any experience with the Vivo Fit? I was looking at its specs today online and I really like that it is water resistant up to 50 meters and has a heart rate monitor built-in... Read more

National Novel Writers Month (aka NaNoWriMo)

Friday, September 26, 2014      3 comments

Has anyone done this before? I did it back in '09. The brief explanation is that for the 30 days of November you are challenged to write 50,000. They have a site where you can upload your word count and connect with other local participants, etc... Read more

Musings on a Gloomy Thursday

Thursday, September 25, 2014      8 comments

I was reading a friend's blog on being respectful and treating other people decently that stirred up a lot of feelings for me on something that I need to do more work on. I am generally a friendly, open person. We all encounter those peopl... Read more

Pretty Muddy 2014

Monday, September 22, 2014      13 comments

This was my first mud run, so I really had no idea of what to expect. I was advised to bring a garbage for muddy things, a change of clothes and shoes and a towel, which I heeded. What I wasn't expecting was to pay $10 to park! According to the ... Read more

It's a joyful kind of day.

Friday, September 19, 2014      4 comments

I'm usually in a good mood, but I'm feeling a little extra pep in my step today. I'm excited for my first mud run tomorrow. The whole idea of getting to roll around in the mud like a giant two year old just makes me giddy. And did I mention ther... Read more
