September started off pretty good, but my heel pain started getting worse. I tried resting it with no change, when I ran on it no change. It just hurt! I got in to see a podiatrist who I didn't really "click" with. I felt like he totally wa... Read more

So I am only a week into September and I had 2 binges. Both on chocolate covered granola bars. MUST get those out of the house! And this morning in church it was ALL I could think about (any other food addicts relate?). I could just picture them... Read more

I started on SparkPeople 4 yrs ago in September.... It's always been a good month for me. There are no holiday celebrations, no birthdays, the weather starts to become more tolerable to exercise outdoors in, etc.... September is going to be MY m... Read more

I have such mixed feelings. My super sweet DH rented us a room in a really gorgeous luxury resort in Dallas. Just he and I. We spent the day just hanging out enjoying each other. Part of me was super thrilled and excited just to be spending time... Read more

SO I can't believe I am hitting 40 next month! It's really starting to hit me. I broke down and made some Dr appointments. One with "Women's Health".... I have been BAD and not gotten a female exam in 4-5 yrs. I figure 40 is a good time to get t... Read more

UGH! If it's not one thing it's another. I got my carpal tunnel fixed, now my heel spur has flared up again. I've stopped all extra running and am just doing CrossFit. So frustrating! It's not getting any worse, but not showing any signs of gett... Read more

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last blog. We had our beach vacation which was amazing. Gorgeous weather and I got a fabulous tan. I wasn't as thin as I wanted, but it was all good. I seem to be maintaining around 140... Read more
