Just felt like blogging about some random things going on.... Got my hair done this past week with some dk red highlights... Last time I did blonde so I ended up darkening up quite a bit. It's weird... sometimes I will look in the mirror an... Read more
Downside to my Garmin 305
Thursday, January 06, 2011      5 comments

I had a horrible run this afternoon. I started off way too fast thinking I am more fit than I am. "Two points" for confidence, right? Wrong! I was not even a mile into my run when I got side stitches and shin splints... Grrrr..... I had to... Read more

Yesterday I went on a practice run of the trail for the half marathon I am running in 3 (yikes!) weeks. I was a little nervous because I have never run on a trail before so I didn't now what to expect. Let me tell you- it was AMAZING! It i... Read more

Saturday, January 01, 2011      3 comments

I weighed in the morning at 146.2. I am very happy with that considering how much binge-ing I have done this month. But I am done with the scale for the month of January. It is put up and I will not step on it again until February 1st where I wi... Read more
New Year's Resolution

Ok, well not really a resolution because I hate that word, lol... This is just an issue in my quest for a healthy lifestyle that I need to work on. I feel like I have the fitness aspect down. I do enjoy exercising (especially now that I am ... Read more
Mind has caught up with body
Thursday, December 30, 2010      9 comments

It's weird, but I finally think my mind has caught up with my weight. I reached my lowest of 142 back in the middle of May (highest was 209 lbs Sept. 2009). Since then I have pretty much maintained around 150, give or take 5-7 lbs. I am a size 8... Read more
Wish I Could Stick My Head in the Sand
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      5 comments

Sometimes I wish I were an ostrich and I could just stick my head in the sand. But no.... I have to be the type of person who - when I get an idea- has to go and research and ask questions find different opinions and pretty soon before I know i... Read more

Can't believe I just did this!
Sunday, December 26, 2010      10 comments

I guess I must truly have been bitten by the running bug. DH and I have planned our summer vacation already- we usually have to nail down dates around this time for our jobs. We knew we were going to DC this summer (that's where all of his famil... Read more

How many more gadgets can I add???
Friday, December 24, 2010      2 comments

It's been a rough week--- Spark-wise. I have been eating uncontrollably and not exercising. I don't even want to jump on the scale because I know it will be depressing. I guess it is the stress of the holidays if I were to make excuses. But I re... Read more

My new perspective on goal setting
Sunday, December 12, 2010      9 comments

My favorite book lately has been Complete Book of Women's Running by Dagny Scott Barrios. I read it cover to cover initially, and now I go pick it up, flip it open randomly and read bits and pieces of it. I came across this paragraph about ... Read more

I did it!
Friday, December 10, 2010      15 comments

I registered for the half marathon in January! No turning back now... I have a goal to walk/jog the thing and push myself and finish under 3 hours. Pretty do-able, don't you think? I think if I alternate walking and running I will be fine. Right... Read more
