New is the word of my life lately...
New job, new normal, new friendships, new family life. Trying to find a rhythm has been tough, but I am tougher!
Third week at new job, but only the second week with students. Loving it so far. Scheduled my office hours so I can sneak ... Read more
First real physical activity in 6 weeks, that felt GOOD!

So much going on, so much to tell you! A glimpse...
I have been MIA. I have been good...mostly. I have been busy. One of my new goals is to stay under 150 for my first year as a FULL TIME PROFESSOR!
Yes, I finally got a full time position. More on that another day.
So to get me on t... Read more

Today is a good day
I have not fallen off the wagon, just flying low under the radar of maintenance. I did gain a few due to my stupid shoulder injury (that's gonna leave a mark!) But overall, I am doing good.
I do know the following:
When I track, even m... Read more
Big plans for 2014!!!!

Inspired to swim
Not exactly sure if I did anything to hurt my groin, but it hurts. So instead of going for a walk/run, I took to the local pool. I got a good 40 minutes in and my daughter swam with me for a little while. It's fun to see her under the water w... Read more
Really? I gotta do this again?
You can't hear the sarcasm in my title, but it's there...with a little disdain too! Here I am, just shy of my starting weight of two years ago. Yes, I said it! That hurt to admit, but it must be done. I have to take responsibility for the pa... Read more
I am freeeeeeeeee! Feels good too!
It's official, I am released from my doctors care for my knee. He spent all of 5 minutes with me and sent me on my way. I was expecting that, only because there's not much to say or do. I am ready to be done, physically and mentally.

I have burned more calories this week than I have in a long time. Running and ST are good calorie burners, but I have to work harder for those and they feel like 'work' if you know what I mean.
After a year of being patient, working hard... Read more
Trying to find the silver lining (with pic)
Yes, I am alive and well...well. Hubby goes back to work next week, will get benefits in 90 days (maybe sooner with my work) and I am maintaining despite all the drama. So all in all, it's been a pretty good few weeks since my last blog.

Fell on my butt today, literally!
First day I have worked out in a while. I went to do this exercise as part of my knee rehab and fell. Picture this...I run fast for about 25-30 feet and then slow with a 3 step shuffle (suppose to strengthen the knee), well the grass was wet, ... Read more
