Finding my Balance
Friday, April 22, 2011      2 comments

I'm not sure where the balance has been in my life this school year, but since August 2010, I have not taken time for me. Things at work have been crazy. If you have heard anything about Wisconsin teachers in the news this year, you know only a... Read more
The good, the bad, the results, new goals and a celebration
Monday, September 06, 2010      3 comments

Well, this week my goals were to have a fresh start. I knew I couldn't flip a switch and do it all at once. So, this week my goals were to get back into exercising. I was hoping to get in at least 3 days. My results??? I ran 3 days and did ... Read more
A New Start
Monday, August 30, 2010      4 comments

Well, I joined the "real world" last week and started back to school on Thursday. I love being off in the summer with my kids, but need to be back in a routine. I really fell into some bad habits this month. This summer I put on 8 pounds. I'... Read more
Back in the real world

Someone once told me that life is like juggling glass balls. If you get too many balls in the air, at least one of them will drop. Well, I dropped one this month. I'm glad that this website has given me the right glue to be able to glue this ... Read more

Sunday, July 18, 2010      6 comments

On Saturday, I ran in my first 5K. I didn't the offical results yet, but unoffically I did it in 39 minutes. My goal was to do it in under 40 min. So yeah, me!! It was so humid that I had to stop a walk, not once, not twice, but three times.... Read more
My first 5K on Sat.
Thursday, July 15, 2010      2 comments

I know this won't surprise many of you, but I'm still catching up on all my e-mails and sparking after being gone for a week. I was still debating about doing the 5K on Saturday. My farthest run so far has been 25 minutes. For me this is usua... Read more
Back from Vacation
Wednesday, July 14, 2010      4 comments

I had a great time on vacation. In short, I did fairly well with my eating. I ran 3 days, although I had to walk on two of my runs because the humidity was horrible. I got on the scale this AM and found I am up only 3 pounds. I don't need an... Read more
25 min jog
Saturday, June 26, 2010      3 comments

Today was day 3 of week 6 in the C25K training. I ran for 25 minutes straight. Not fast, but as they say, slow and steady wins the race. I ran for just over 2 miles. I run outside, so I have to estimate. I know where my mile and half mile m... Read more

C25K - W5D3
Thursday, June 17, 2010      5 comments

I know that I was here before and did it, but tomorrow is W5D3 which means my first continuous run for 20 min. My longest continuous run so far (this second time around) has been 8 min., so this will be quite the jump up. Before my stress fra... Read more
Food choices are my downfall
Monday, June 14, 2010      6 comments

I'm not sure why, but both Friday night and Saturday night, the late night snacking got me again. I'm not sure if I decided that because I was within 5 pounds of my original goal weight that I should sabotage my efforts, not sure if it was the ... Read more
Finished the 10K
Saturday, June 12, 2010      7 comments

Well, the 10K was today. Fortunately the thunderstorms missed us so they didn't cancel the race. We had a pretty steady rain for most of the race and it was definately colder than normal, but what an experience. There were over 18,000. I did... Read more

Today was my last day of school. I was in training today and yesterday. It wasn't very good. So I am so glad that those two days are done and I can start enjoying my summer. I plan to get up at my normal time and get some fitness in. I'... Read more
Crazy week
Saturday, June 05, 2010      4 comments

I have only two more days with the kids at my school and then 2 days of training. My kids are all done as of yesterday, so next week will be a little bit of a juggling act with child care. This past week was crazy. I had a field trip with... Read more
Monday
Monday, May 31, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday I logged 5.5 miles. I walked 3 miles with my kids. Then when my son was having his soccer practice, I went for a 2.5 mile run. That felt really good. I'm still doing interval running, but I was running for one song on my MP3 player... Read more
