Big news: I moved into a house! It's been crap on my eating habits and I'm finally realizing how bad it's gotten. I've gained (ugh) 18 lbs since I stopped everything health related. I say 18 more or less b/c it may have been bloating or whatever happens when you just eat anything on site. I was nervous about the loan, nervous about our bills, and well, in no mood to pack and cook/workout. Yep, excuses. I know, moving on.
I am finishing my first week back on WW (new…Continue
It's been a long day but a good one. I went grocery shopping but still had wings for dinner. They're awesome and the only time my hubby and I eat wings.

Fish, brown rice, lettuce, frozen veggies, frozen fruit, yogurt, milk... blah blah. I haven't felt deprived and I honestly feel better than all this time trying to reach my goal weight. I don't have one anymore, I don't know if that's bad.

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" (Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian and sub-2:12 marathoner)
"Do the thing you fear, and the death of the fear is certain." (William James)
"They can conquer who believe they can. He has not learned the first lesson of life who does not every day surmount a fear." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
"Act as if you already are. This is one of the many mantras that we employ when it comes time to go after a goal that is beyond what has already been accomplished. Breaking new ground physically requires you to first break that mental barrier so that it can come into being." (Terrence Mahon, Team Running USA's head coach)
Here's a small video of my first race, it was awesome!
