Today is my son's first day back to school, and I'm so glad to get back into our routine. I've been having a rough time with sticking to my eating goals lately...okay, that's not quite true. I've actually not even been trying (which also explain... Read more
I see it's been almost a month since I've written a blog. I guess time got away from me. I've not been practicing good nutrition lately, but I have been keeping up with my running. That seems to be the story of my life, really. Still, I've not h... Read more
4-mile Race Report (PR!)
It's been raining for about two weeks. No, that's not an exaggeration. It doesn't typically rain all day long, but it's still the wettest summer I can remember ever having in Ohio. So, when I woke up at 5:30 on Saturday to get ready for my race,... Read more
Today's weigh in could not have made me happier. Not only am I finally back on the right track after a few bad weeks, but I also managed to reach the halfway point for my 2013 weight goal. That's convenient, considering there are just over 6 mon... Read more
I've been doing good with my eating this week, which is a relief after having a few not-so-great weeks in a row. My weight already appears to be headed down, too, so that is fabulous. I'm feeling much less desperate and much more in control than... Read more
Like most people on Spark, I've gone through the whole weight loss thing multiple times in my life. Over the years, I've experienced four phases of weight loss.
Phase one is the honeymoon phase. You start a new program and you are highly m... Read more
I went shopping yesterday, in an attempt to find a pair of shorts. We are headed to an amusement park tomorrow, and I discovered not long ago that all of my warm weather clothing from last year is about 2 sizes too large. So, out of respect for ... Read more
One Run for Boston
I just saw this article today about a run across the U.S. from California to Boston to raise money for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Love the idea of this run, but I don't think I'll be able to participate. Just passing on the love... Read more
I am so tired today that my brain feels fuzzy. Do you know that feeling? It's hard to describe other than to say that I'm not functioning at my highest ability right now.
I've been having trouble sleeping for the past three nights. Even tho... Read more
Oh, the humidity!
This is the final week of school for the kid, and as such, it is the final week for me to run while he is otherwise occupied. My routine is to drop him off at school, then run at/near/on/around the "wellness path" right near his school. It has w... Read more
A few weeks ago, I signed up for a 4-mile race at the end of June. I typically run 3 miles, 3 days a week. I was confident I could do the 4 miles without too much trouble, but I figured I'd better start increasing my mileage just to ensure that ... Read more
Last summer, I had wanted to start a small vegetable garden in my backyard, but it didn't quite happen. This year, I'm finally going to do it. And, I'm really excited about it!
Hubby and I went to Lowe's over the weekend and got a bunch of ... Read more
My typical workout on Wednesday is to run intervals on my treadmill. But today was a beautiful day, and we've had so few of them this spring, so I couldn't resist taking my run outside. Hubby even went with me, which was a nice surprise.
I ... Read more
Better Than New
What is better than buying new clothes? That's easy. Fitting into the ones you've already got.
After my run this morning, I took a shower (as usual) and started to get dressed. I was standing in my jeans and bra, looking for a shirt to wea... Read more
Disappointed, but not surprised
I had my first gain this week. Well, the first one since I started doing WW in February, at least. I can't say that I'm surprised because I made some bad decisions last night.
It all started with the pizza. Hubby made a frozen pizza for hi... Read more
