A Moment to Breathe
Thursday, October 18, 2012      12 comments

Yesterday I decided to take a quick hike through the neighborhood trail. I didn't get as far as I'd hoped to go - a gigantic fallen tree was blocking the trail. But it felt good to get outside in the air and take a few moments to breathe. I stop... Read more

One of these days you will get a positive blog out of me. One of these days, I promise! I went to the doctor on Tuesday because I had a headache for five days and I wasn’t feeling myself. My usual doc was out so I had to see one I have neve... Read more

I started today off with the first level of C25K at 4am. I found it a little too easy, so I did some extra running. I downloaded the free trial app on my iphone, and I think I will be buying the whole thing! It really keeps you accountable for y... Read more

I don’t have a lot of motivating words for you today sparkfriends. Today I kind of feel like junk about myself. I have lost about 40 lbs. And then I hit a wall – a big, solid, wall of fat that won’t budge. Could I up my workouts to th... Read more
Life Lessons (You Bet I Did It the Hard Way)

I learned a few lessons in the past 24 hours that I wanted to share with everyone: 1) Waking up at 430 am in the dark to go for a run before work is tough to do. It takes more willpower than you’d think (for me at least, I was surprised). B... Read more

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      10 comments

I am keeping it classy, as always. This morning I was commuting to work and totally fell down a flight of stone stairs leaving the metro. Several people stopped, which is nice and also embarrassing, and I tried to brush it off. I came to wo... Read more
A Blog?! And Pictures too?!

Hello! I’m back in action. Sort of, kind of. Update time I suppose? We went to the beach and had a great time. It wasn’t a swanky resort – Ocean City is “Family” driven but has a little seedy underside – but we had a good time. I ate b... Read more

Here I am, standing (by writing) before you and asking for it. I want a big, painful, nasty kick to the behind. I think I am starting over at square one… in several ways. - I can’t really remember the last time I worked out worked out. I th... Read more
