I had another reallly good day today. I ate amazingly well... I am not tracking, but am debating whether or not I should. I just tend to be overly meticulous about it and end up getting frustrated, lol. I guess if I get in a general range, I'll ... Read more

1. In the mornings, after an evening binge, I am waking up feeling gross. Full, bloated and defeated, but anxious to jump back on and try again. I MUCH prefer waking up feeling slightly hungry, skinny, and successful! I know that once I get the ... Read more

Well, my "official" time for my Half Marathon on Saturday was 2:27:01. I hate that "01". If I would have been just a second faster I could say "2:26" when people ask me my time. Oh well! I came in 55th out of 78 runners. Not bad!!!! In my age gr... Read more

I had a really good run yesterday. It was my first time running on the trail that runs through the city. I asked my husband if he thought it was safe and he joked: "I don't know, Helen.... those country club gangsters are pretty violent". LOL! T... Read more

I don't know what is going on... I am letting anxiety get the best of me. I am still very highstrung about my potential job promotion and I am using food to comfort myself. I came a step closer by making the "highest qualified" list and now it i... Read more
