A scale victory to add to the NSV!
Well it was bound to happen, if I had patience, and it did. A victory on the scale. It is where I'd like it to be. I feel better and my clothes are fitting better. Am I as small as I once was, NO and I'm glad. I was too skinny.
I like my m... Read more
My longest run ever.
Yesterday was great! I can say that now.
I ran 22.83 miles yesterday. No 26.2 sticker, but that is OK! I... Read more
This is not a competitive race, per say. I will never be first, nor will I get an age award and that is fine. I am trying not to get to competitive with myself. I RELLY want to finish 26.2 miles tomorrow. However, I can't let that goal disrupt m... Read more
Yesterday was poop, but I feel human today.
I felt like poop yesterday. I barely made it through work. I literally sat most of the day. My principal asked if I was ok because I never sit. I have no idea if I had overdone it by mowing lawn and running the night before or if the leftovers I... Read more
Gearing up mind and body for Saturday.
Saturday is the Dizzy Goat 3/6/12 hour trail run. I am doing the six hour and have to run 19.25 miles, 6 loops, in order to earn a finishers medal. I can do it! I ran the same distance in 4.24.00 a few weeks ago at the Gravel Classic. I have a g... Read more
Another 10k in the books.
This morning I ran the BRIN series Cornfield to Cornfield 10k. It was a nice race and it was surprisingly clean after some major storms went through last night.
I was happy to see ONEKIDSMOM in attendance. We had a chance to chat before th... Read more
Running a 10k tomorrow
I am planning on meeting up with a sparkfriend tomorrow at a 10k. ONEKIDSMOM is my mentor and inspiration and I look forward to seeing her again.
Tomorrow will be a "training" run as next week is the Dizzy Goat 6 hour trail run. To get a medal ... Read more
The journey is good!
I haven't weighed in for about two weeks. At this point in my journey I know eating out makes my body "react" and then my mind "reacts" to the scale. My clothes are looser and my favorite running shorts aren't as tight on my thighs, so I know I... Read more
Not 30k, but a 31k!
Yesterday was my 30k run. It was unsupported which not only meant no aid stations, but no time, no medals, no shirts, just running. I normally LOVE the bling, but I loved this run.
I felt good for my "normal" amount of miles. When I hit ... Read more
My huband is motivating.
I was planning on going for a run tonight, but after a pedicure with my mom and dinner with my husband I had dismissed the idea. Then my husband said something that motivated me. He told my daughters that I had planned on going on a run so I cou... Read more
Mental Health Day
Yesterday I took a mental health day from work. I got a little over 8 hours of sleep, a rarity for me! I usually get around six, no matter what time I go to bed.
I did some things around the house, but by 10:30 AM I was bored. It was a clo... Read more
Changing it up.
Thank you for all the comments on my last blog. I have been trying to change it up, but will do so even more later this month. My friend puts on a bootcamp twice a week through the summer. He works at the local Y and really challenges mind and b... Read more
Coming to acceptance
This journey is full of ups and downs. Funny how when we look at the scale it's actually "backwards." The up, higher numbers, isn't what we want and the downs, lower numbers, is the "good." I continue to struggle with those darn numbers. Down 5,... Read more
I missed my own anniversary.
I completely forgot about my maintenance anniversary! It still is somewhat hard for me to call myself a maintainer when I've gained some weight back. However, I am maintaining my healthy lifestyle of eating healthy and exercising daily. I'm runn... Read more

Numbers and words.
Wow, I did not catch the mistake in my last blog. It ended up being 10 miles in 2 hours. Although, I do have a six hour run later in the year. We just run, or move, for six hours to see how far we get. I figure it will be a good way to gage my ... Read more
