I'll admit I've been struggling. I'm eating decent and getting exercise despite my crazy busy schedule. It's not my "normal" exercise nor is it at the same intensity, aka. no running. The weight keeps creeping on. I know my body is changi... Read more

Below calories as we cook!

Saturday, May 16, 2015      5 comments

Today was shopping and food prep. I am actually under calories for the day. We had pizza made with Naan bread for dinner and I'm still under. I need to do that again tomorrow! Maybe I'll get in a pattern and get back to the lower end of my wei... Read more

Gearing up for a big weekend.

Friday, May 15, 2015      9 comments

I like to say that my big weekend has something to do with running, but alas it is not. I have in-laws arriving today, cleaning and prep work on Saturday, a graduation blessing and party on Sunday, and a graduation ceremony on Monday. Lots... Read more

Mixed emotions on Mother's Day

Monday, May 11, 2015      15 comments

I didn't mention it yesterday, but it was eight years ago, on Mother's Day, that my Dad was called to his eternal home. Mother's Day was on the 13th that year, but Mother's Day always reminds me of the last moment I was with my Dad. I was t... Read more

Just venting!

Friday, May 08, 2015      12 comments

For the most part, I'm eating well and I always get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. Many days it's closer to an hour. The numbers on the scale are going up and my clothes are getting smaller. For some reason I've retained a ton of water ... Read more

I decided to go for a run today. Maybe it was the nice weather, maybe it was I was running in a relay a week ago, maybe it was the thought that my friend ONEKIDSMOM was running in the Lincoln Marathon. (Someday I will run a 1/2 with her!) W... Read more

Good news

Friday, May 01, 2015      10 comments

I haven't been able to run this week. Graduation planning, kids sporting events, honors banquet, family, and tutoring have kept me busy. The good news is that I think I'm finally done with the chiropractor! I have been feeling great with n... Read more

I did it! I mailed all of my daughters graduation announcements! Whew! I haven't been able to get to bed early, yet. Tonight we have an honors recognition to go to. I'm hoping it's not too late so that I can get to bed early. I hope to run ... Read more

A good soreness

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      8 comments

It was such a great weekend. Lots of family time, the perfect running weather and nice drives there and back. I have the usual soreness associated with running a longer distance. However, it's a good soreness! My orthotics did well and I didn't ... Read more

I am so sore this morning, but I've come to a place of contentment in my life. I've learned that there are things that happen that are beyond my control and instead of "stewing over it," I've learned to let it go. (Break into song here.) Read more

A short run

Friday, April 17, 2015      11 comments

I went on a short run to try out my "modified" orthotics. I only went 2.63 miles at about 10 1/2 minute miles, but it felt good. The right one still feels a little off, but that is also my "bad leg" so it may just need some time. The feet ... Read more
