How did the year pass so quickly?
Saturday, November 02, 2013      4 comments

Okay, here we are in November already! and... while I REMEMBER each of the months passing by, there is a part of me that just thinks 3 or 4 months have passed this year. Strange.... ... Read more
I'm one week in.....
Saturday, June 01, 2013      3 comments

If you believe in serendipity, in fate or coincidence, as I do, then you would have to take a closer look at something that keeps presenting itself. Time and time again, I would see articles about eating clean for hormonal adjustment; about... Read more

Just LOOK at those shoulders!

Well, okay, if I had a picture it would be easier, wouldn't it? But take my word for it, they are starting to make an appearance. Here's my life right now: I've taken on a second job, so 3 or 4 evenings a week, I am working in retail at my... Read more
Wow, time really DOES pass no matter what!

I just realized that I haven't blogged in ages. Well, there are reasons.... I've been too busy living my life to record it. It's been a rough ride in some ways: lost my beloved mother in law unexpectedly, became an empty nester, turned 50,... Read more
A whole new year ahead of me.....hmm, how to fill it.

Goals, goals, goals; sometimes I think they're a great idea, and sometimes they seem pointless and overly optimistic. But if you don't know where you're heading, how do you know when you get there? I think goals say a lot about what a pers... Read more
Pain sucks
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      3 comments

Just for the record, I hate pain. Lower back/ hip pain = no more running or strength training for me for awhile. It's been so bad that I can't sleep well, and I can't stand to be without painkillers. Argh! I feel like such a woos, and I ... Read more
~deep breath~ 10 day plan, rolling forward!
Friday, June 24, 2011      5 comments

So the weekly goals worked out well. Trouble is, when the week was over, I didn't re-post any goals, and just sat on my tush for the WHOLE week! Luckily my eating was... Read more
Let's try weekly goals and see if that works better!
Friday, June 03, 2011      4 comments

The whole monthly thing is just too big a concept for me to grasp; or rather, it gives me too many loopholes to squiggle through when I set goals. Consistency is a toughie for me! My eating is healthy and reasonable, but I'm really struggling ... Read more
You pick your hard.
Friday, March 11, 2011      4 comments

I heard this saying not long ago, with respect to weight loss: You pick your hard. It's hard to be overweight. Well, anyone not picked for a sports team in school knows THAT. Anyone who ever missed out on a date with Mr. Dreamboat, who... Read more
Goals ( what else?)
Sunday, January 02, 2011      7 comments

In the spirit of turning the calendar page, and even though they scare me to pieces (cause if you don't achieve them, you have another reason to beat yourself up!), I'm going to try to set some goals, but definitely keep it simple for January. ... Read more
If you run... PLEASE help with this!

I have a quandary: I have been training for my first half marathon over the past few months, and just found out that the local club hosting the half and full marathon does not really provide for beginner, slow runners like me. They only have o... Read more
7 miles of work, and 2 miles of pain
Sunday, October 10, 2010      13 comments

I do my long runs on Sunday, because I can usually take it easy for the rest of the day. Plus, I rest on Mondays, just in case. Relatively speaking, I'm pretty much a newbie runner: I've toyed with running on and off for the last three years, ... Read more
Taming the dragon
Saturday, October 02, 2010      9 comments

So.... what exactly did you think you were going to see in this blog with that title? I read that in an article about running, and about getting too ambitious, not tr... Read more
Cravings, those little beasties that gnaw at you
Sunday, September 26, 2010      9 comments

We all have them. At different times, we've all tried to drown/ smother/ feed/ starve them. But they still sneak back in. I was so proud of how well I did on vacation: for the first time ever, I ate sensibly, and I continued my running sc... Read more
