Coming Back
Tuesday, July 21, 2009      1 comments

The day before my first 5k race, a month and a half ago, I fell of a chair and sprained my ankle badly enough that it's still giving me troubles right now. Shortly after that, I got a horribly cough that set up shop in my lungs and still hasn't ... Read more
My boyfriend is being supportive again... >_>

I came home today and cheerfully announced to my fellow that as soon as my ankle's healed, I'm going to start the 100 Push-up Challenge. "Rawr!" I said, flexing my pitiful little arms. "I'll be badass!" "That's just going to make your arm... Read more

So I had my first 5k race this Saturday... I spent it sitting on my butt playing with some children while I watched the sweaty people cross the finish line. I was living life to the fullest, man! What happened, you ask? Why didn't I run in the ... Read more
What Are Reasonable Goals?

When I first started this, I pegged 125 lbs as my personal weight goal... It's tinier than I've been in years. In high school I was a black belt in training in a martial art called Shotokan, and a rough and tumble kind of person. My family is bu... Read more
A Little Disappointment...
Thursday, May 28, 2009      2 comments

I've got a couple 5k races coming up this month. The first I'll be doing with my lovely friend Stitchy, who'll be holding my hand for my first ever race, showing me the ropes, and giving me a graceful excuse if I need to quit running and walk. S... Read more
Running... Running... NOT RUNNING!
Tuesday, May 12, 2009      2 comments

I've been having weird runs lately... I finished up the running schedule a couple weeks ago when I discovered it was too bloody easy. I tweaked it by running the required time and then doing a couple minute walk and adding a second several minut... Read more
Week 11, Day 1
Monday, April 20, 2009      0 comments

Well I dutifully did five days of week 10 plus a little bit of work on an elliptical trainer last week and I felt pretty good about it. I steadily did about 2.85 miles every run and every run, I trimmed a little time off how long it took me to d... Read more
Going Down... (No more 150's!)
Wednesday, April 15, 2009      4 comments

I didn't expect to lose any weight this week. I ran 6 days out of the week which was good but I also ate several Magic Bar Cookies, some richly cooked chicken, stuffing, and a pizza over the weekend. I didn't run most of the weekend 'cause I was... Read more
Non-Dairy Options

I'm lactose intolerant. Not -badly-. I can get away with eating a sprinkling of cheese without more than mild stomach pains, but a couple bowls of ice cream will always mean a.. significant degree of personal discomfort. Erm. So I've tried the p... Read more
Some Cooking Successes!
Thursday, April 09, 2009      0 comments

I can't cook. I've never been a kitchen kinda girl. I can -bake- like a champion but I'd rather go to Wendy's than wait for water to boil. I inevitably get caught up in a book or a game and next thing I know the pot's full of some sticky, burnt... Read more
Week 8! (Heck yeah!)
Thursday, April 02, 2009      3 comments

I came home crying from my run on Tuesday. This isn't unusual for me. Running sucks and I'm not good at it and I have a peculiar blend of willpower, self-disgust, and enthusiasm that's kept me at it for months now. There have been many days... Read more
How'd This Start Now?
Wednesday, April 01, 2009      2 comments

The best thing that's ever happened to me was breaking up with my boyfriend. We were broken up for all of three days over Christmas and it was... 70% my fault. My mother committed suicide at Christmas some years back and to say the holiday... Read more
