Check a 5k off my list of lifetime goals. It is complete! We had a great girls weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. Us three girls drove 2 hours to Columbus last night and stayed in a hotel. Unfortunately, I slept horribly. I just don't do well in hotel rooms, I was excited about the race, and worried I was keeping the other girls up. I remember looking at the clock and just wishing it would be 6:30 so we could get up.
Here we are before the race began (I'm in the middle,…Continue

I was feeling good about WI this week and rightfully so - I was down a full pound! Woo hoo! I'm still in the 60s, but only by the hair of chinny-chin-chin (.3). I'll be back in the 50s again next week for sure.
After months of training and planning--it's go time. Race weekend. I know that a 5k is not a big deal to a lot of people. But to someone who literally couldn't jog for a minute a few months ago--it is a big deal. This is the first thing that I have really committed to that was way outside my comfort zone. I tend to shy away from things that are hard or that I am not good at. Not this time. I went through the Couch to 5k program and then beyond. I am slow. But I am doing it. I am so excited…Continue
Hey all, hope you're all enjoying your Friday morning. I know I am, relaxing, etc. I work from 4-9pm tonight and I'm working a cashier shift, first one since I was trained so I am definitely nervous. I am trying to focus on eating healthy today, I have these yogurt covered mango granola balls that I am bringing to snack on during the day, I'll also bring (maybe) a small salad with baby carrots in it, a clif bar, and maybe a banana or mango, I'll write it out and post it on here later…Continue
Yesterday I was so exhausted from the beginning of the week that I fell asleep at 6pm. Then woke up at 9. Then went back to sleep at 10! I needed the sleep and I feel MUCH better today. Which is good, because it's go time!
I've got work today (currently at work again typing this before school officially begins...bad habit!), then after work I'm going to see A.J. for a bit, then we'll drive back to lake st. louis to my parent's house, stay the night there, do my sister's…Continue

Ok, yesterday was a good day...got to bed around 10 am up by 2 pm. Ate lunch, then did some yardwork, went for a 8 mile bike ride & 2 mile walk with hubby. WW points were in check for the day. 2 days tracking only a lifetime to go.
Didn't work last night & I don't have to work tonight :) so today I plan to cut grass using the push mower for about half of it (have an acre lot), and do some planting. Plus, that dreaded laundry piled up again. Hopefully a campfire tonight or off…Continue
We rented bikes in Cozumel and rode to the other side of the island - about 10 miles one way. I knew the bikes we had were super shitty, not well maintained and didn't fit us well. But I had no idea of the havoc that would be wreaked (sp?) on my body. I have been in serious pain since getting back. My knees feel like back when I was addicted to running but had serious knee problems and ran despite of them. I guess my lower back also took a beating on those bikes. That's all I can figure out…Continue
