This time of the year is a joyous one. I love Thanksgiving! It's my favorite holiday! Many people get caught up in the buying part of the season, but Thanksgiving is all about being thankful. I am thankful for this journey and what brought... Read more

Countdown to my 10k

Tuesday, November 25, 2014      16 comments

Thursday is my 10k run. Of course, it's going to be the coldest day of the week. I'll be layering up, but not quite sure how many. I'll figure it out and I can always take some off. The other problem of the day is that we aren't eating un... Read more

Using the dog....

Monday, November 24, 2014      13 comments

I've noticed many of us have dogs. Many, like me, use the dog as an excuse. We use our dogs as an excuse, aka motivator, to get our butts off the couch and out of the house. Our dogs don't care if it's dark out, cold, raining, snowing, etc. ... Read more

Hair and shoes, wow what a difference.

I'm not too sure about the hair. I had to have a lot of length taken off due to breakage from pulling it back into ponytails. I'm now researching headbands so I can grow it back out. It's a new color, as well as a new cut. I think it makes m... Read more

It sneaks up on you

Friday, November 21, 2014      13 comments

Today I went over my calorie range. (Good thing I already weighed in for my maintenance team challenge!) It started innocently enough, a colleague brought in mini blueberry muffins and homemade chocolate chip, banana and cranberry bread. I had... Read more

New hair and exercising

Thursday, November 20, 2014      10 comments

Yesterday I got in a 60 minute walk before I went and had my hair done. New cut and color. It was much needed as I had so much breakage at the bottom. My younger daughter stated that the hair ties that I use when I pull my hair into a ponytail... Read more

Symbols of a runner

Monday, November 17, 2014      14 comments

I started thinking about my running and what exactly makes one a runner? You have the visible symbols like a Road ID on your wrist. Maybe it even has an extra 13.1 on the side of the personal information. There are the norms; shoes, shorts, run... Read more

Stiff and sore this morning.

Saturday, November 15, 2014      9 comments

I am NOT complaining as I do kind of like when I'm a little sore after a workout. It tells me that I "did something" and that I worked hard. After reading responses and talking to family and a fellow runner, I am going to look into a chirop... Read more

I wish this would end!

I've used my elliptical every day this week. I'm trying to figure out how to run in frigid temps. Tonight I decided to get a run in before the snow comes. It was a little over 4 miles, but right away my left leg started complaining. I've... Read more

Up early to elliptical!

I got up at 4 AM to use my elliptical. My emoticon husband found and ordered the part that broke. He is on vacat... Read more

Finding my happy medium!

Sunday, November 09, 2014      13 comments

I went for my first "longer" run since the Double Half Mary at the beginning of the month. I went 7.65 miles, but it took me 90 minutes. I felt pretty good, but if it's not my lower right back complaining it's my left hamstring. Once the hams... Read more

I got to run last night. It was a little over 3 miles, but I actually felt like I was close to my old way of running. emoticonRead more

On the run!

Thursday, November 06, 2014      15 comments

This week I've been on the run a lot! The good thing is yesterday I literally was on the run. I ran 3 miles! Still having a few complaints from the body, but I'm doing a lot of stretching. I'm determined that I'm not going to let it hold me ba... Read more

I need to refocus.

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      18 comments

This will be short as it's a similar story that many of us have experienced. I've had ups and downs with the eating and exercising. Some days are good and some not-so-good. My body is telling me that it's time to refocus and get back to cleane... Read more
