Monday, October 10, 2016      9 comments

One portion of the weekend challenge for BLC32 asks us to "Reflect and blog about what your doing right this blc." My first reaction was to wonder if I am doing anything right. I've been having a little difficulty with focus and consistency th... Read more

One of the Weekend Challenge tasks for BLC was, "Visit another participating team with a 'positive or motivational' word. Be creative." The first words that came into my mind were positive and motivational, but they weren't particularly creati... Read more

Friday, March 13, 2015      10 comments

I gained some weight this week. Today was the first day all week that I ran. I made some poor choices this week, and it shows. But I’m not here to vent. I’m not deep in the pit of despair wondering how I’m ever going to climb back out. I ... Read more

Today I was out for my first full "happy run" of the month. I decided yesterday that I was going to ignore my pace, total distance, and all the "data" and just enjoy the run for the month of January. As I finished my first mile, I smiled becau... Read more
From my running mind: Well, that sucked!
Friday, January 02, 2015      10 comments

That's pretty much summed up my feelings on every run that I've done since the day after Christmas. Today's run started out the same way. Then somewhere into the second mile, the light bulb suddenly went on. The run didn't suck...my attitude ... Read more

I cannot believe that we are at the end of the round already. Where did the time go?! I also cannot believe that I haven't written a blog since the beginning of the round. I've had plenty of blogs "written" in my mind during my runs. I've ev... Read more

Monday, September 22, 2014      7 comments

What do I expect from BLC-26? The question really is, "What do I expect from myself over the next 12 weeks?" BLC is a fantastic tool, and my Blue Lion Tracker teammates are an amazing part of my journey. In the end, though, it all comes down ... Read more
From my running mind: Perspective
Friday, August 01, 2014      16 comments

I had one of my best runs yesterday. Was it a fast run? No, it was really slow. So slow that I normally would have shed tears of frustration at the pace. Was it a long run? No, it was one of the shortest that I've done recently. ... Read more

It's once again time for a confession. I was very off-track on Monday and most of Tuesday. VERY off-track. I stopped tracking. I stopped thinking about what I was eating. I didn't exercise or even move very much. I ate without regard to my... Read more

Wednesday, June 04, 2014      13 comments

HALF MARATHON DAY! Be warned: this is LONG and mostly likely will bore the socks off of you. I started and restarted this blog so many times over the past couple of weeks. I’m still not entirely happy with it, but I really need to get it ... Read more
Which came first? Or The attack of the binge monster!
Saturday, May 03, 2014      9 comments

Wednesday night I had a visit from the Binge Monster. Not only did I not fight it off, I think at one point I actually invited it in to stay for a while. Uncharacteristically, I actually forgave myself and moved on pretty quickly. Somethi... Read more

Saturday, May 03, 2014      5 comments

I cannot believe how quickly April went by! 1. Lose 18-28 pounds to get to a final goal of 125-135 pounds. * I've hit the top of that range, and I decided that 135 is GOAL. I am now working to maintain between 135 and 140. 125 is too low ... Read more

End of BLC24 w/pics
Friday, April 11, 2014      24 comments

I cannot believe how quickly BLC 24 went by! It seems like I hardly started, and now it's done. I didn't have spectacular results (though I did make it to goal). I am excited to begin BLC 25 in a few weeks. In the meantime, I'm participating... Read more
