Spring cleaning = exercise?
Monday, April 05, 2010      2 comments

There's something about spring cleaning that lightens my step and frees my mind. It even makes me feel fit. Odd. The Easter long weekend turned into a great opportunity to be at home all day for 4 days and get my house in order. I feel 5 pou... Read more
March goal met!

I know that I'm serious about losing weight when I'm willing to do things I absolutely hate, like use the scale and track calories...blech. I'm super committed when I'll even wear an activity band that gives me an allergic reaction. The ... Read more

A week ago, I had a crazy binge. I said I'd learn from it and not look back. 7 days strong. There has been a recent mental shift in my journey of healthy living. I spent the first 3 years clinging to whatever support I could find,... Read more

Last night, I did some work at home...and ate 1000 calories in creamcheese frosting while I was at it. That choice will set back my wl goals for the week. It's just a week and an important lesson. What do I do next time? Own what I'm wanting... Read more

After the shock of realizing that my scale weight loss had only been in my head, I'm once again showing that scale who's boss. I measured after one week and my measurements said squat (TOM), so I decided I needed some scale feedback. Down 3 po... Read more

Gotta start a song list. There's only so much FM that I can take and if I'm going to run a marathon, I need some music that's going to make me groove. GROOVE LIST - Robin Thicke - what's the name of that song? Nicky something - I b... Read more
Calories in...calories out.

I've been trying this whole calorie-tracking thing for the last few weeks. My approach has been different than in years gone by where the daily tracking was like a dictator cracking his whip at me and telling me to DO BETTER WORK HARDER HUP HUP... Read more
Spark Challenge Week 4

I made it. So, how have I fared with my goals along the way? In the exercise arena, I did my planks for a few weeks but may have "forgot" (i.e., pushed deep into unconscious cobwebs of mind) to keep it up. I paid the price today at bootca... Read more

I haven't used the scale in one year. Liberated, that's me. But a few things recently have made me really wonder if I've lost as much weight this last year as I'd thought: * My calves still appear mildly herculean, even with muscle tone. ... Read more
My Olympic Day
Monday, March 01, 2010      6 comments

I ran my first half-marathon on the last day of the Winter Olympics. A fitting end to a perfect day. From this milestone, I was able to take away some important nuggets of truth: Success seems to be more about what it takes to reach the g... Read more
Spark Challenge Week 3
Monday, February 22, 2010      2 comments

Last week was really Week 3 of the Spark Challenge, but I got so fascinated with tracking my calories, a carry-over from Week 2, that I took an extra week to get that strategy in place. Turns out I've been eating too many calories overall, eve... Read more

I ate enough today and I'm heading into the evening...my weakest time. So, here is my intention for the rest of the day: I wil not eat anymore. I am strong enough. I will not die. I will do it. Yes.... Read more
One week to my first HALF!

I did it. I set my intention, found a running buddy, and now I can look back on my January 3rd blog with a smile on my face because I'm READY to run 21.1k in one week! As part of my "mental" training, I did a 22k run and a 24k run, just ... Read more
Setting my intention
Sunday, January 03, 2010      2 comments

I'm registered for my first half marathon in February and I'm behind in my training. The problem isn't motivation or dedication. The problem is...the long slow runs. By now, I should be doing 16 - 18K LSDs by now. Not happening. Lif... Read more
