I decided to focus on little changes for a month at a time. I already know the things I need to do, I just need to do them now, and they say it takes something like 20 days for a habit to form, so focusing on five little things for a month is a... Read more
Depression
Wednesday, August 13, 2014      4 comments

I think part of my problem is I am shifting into a mild depression. I'm not a complete stranger to that; I had a pretty bad case of it a few years ago when I was having major problems with my daughter. But right now, my life is great, I have a... Read more
Not Feeling It
Tuesday, August 12, 2014      4 comments

For a few days now, I'm just not feeling it. I usually just do it, go running even when I don't want to, eat what I should even when I want something else. But I'm completely unmotivated today and the past couple days. I did take a long walk ... Read more

So I'm not allowed to run for a week while on the medication, but I can walk and bike. Hubby doesn't particularly care what I do, but he is otherwise uninvolved in my fitness plan. I asked him before to run with me and he flat out said, "no, I... Read more

Last week my family and I hiked most of the Loyalsock trail, 46 miles of the 59.2 miles of it, anyway. We only came home early because we didn't make our daily mileage we needed to make due to stopping early for thunderstorms. We plan to go ba... Read more

Ok so I've been dithering around with the same three pounds for over a month now. I know the problem, it's simple. I've been over calories pretty much every day. Even when I pre-journal, I end up going over with snacks and junk. I have been ... Read more
