Okay, I blogged earlier today that I did do quite a bit of running last spring and summer and ran today. Every time I run, I get a headache later in the day...strange, I know, but does anyone have any thoughts on this? I am always hydrated, don'... Read more

Last spring I began running, slowly working my way up to 42 minutes non-stop. I ran all summer, got down to my lowest weight since I was 14, and absolutely dreaded every run. I had decided that I would rather walk an extra 20 minutes than ever r... Read more

Yesterday was a tough day for me. I was having terrible cravings, for a lot of different things. I wanted to go head first into the usual sweet/salt binge. I went to pick up my sons' medicine at the store, the one that has "to die for" peanut bu... Read more

Okay, I know how to gain 2 1/2 pounds in 3 days: eat like a pig, binge on baked goods and junk until you feel like you're going to explode, and sit on your butt, right? Tell me how it is that I ate well below my calorie limits in the right propo... Read more

Weigh day is today instead of Friday this week since we will be going out tonight. I was a little discouraged this morning for a bit because I was up 1/2 pound from yesterday. I didn't cheat at all, worked out hard, drank 16 cups of water, and m... Read more

So, today I am down another 1/2 pound!! Great, huh? But, I got to thinking, am I "missing" the holidays due to avoidance of the food? Was Christmas different because we didn't have a big fat turkey with ALL the trimmings? Am I missing out becaus... Read more

I was so geared up to eat everything and anything yesterday, and now I know why I can't do that anymore. We awoke to two different homemade coffee cakes, homemade cinnemon rolls, and fresh-from-the- butcher bacon. I ate what I wanted and then at... Read more

I weighed the same today, which is fine. I've already beat my goal for the week by 1/2 pound and I weigh tomorrow. I am pretty achey today from working out 5 days in a row. I'm suppose to run today but I'm afraid my legs are just not going to ho... Read more
