Knowledge without judgment
Saturday, July 07, 2012      6 comments

I blogged on Sunday morning that my goal was to bring my sedentary time down from 65.1% to 65% or less in one week. Here are the results: I'm up to 65.3% sedentary. My li... Read more

There it is. Two major pieces of information from my first week with my FitBit. I knew I lead a sedentary lifestyle, but really? 65.1%?! Yes, 65.1 percent of my awake ... Read more
Interesting change in thought process

I recently received a FitBit. I love that it tracks my every move, tells me my calorie burn for the day, and uses it to tell me how much I can eat that day. I set mine to "sedentary," which starts me out on the low end of my calorie intake for... Read more
Fitspo for Anyone
Friday, June 22, 2012      3 comments

I have been given the honor of working on a health newsletter for my workplace. While I thoroughly enjoy looking at motivating fitness pictures of the highly fit (a.k.a. "fitspo"), I would like to include some pictures of "normal" or "everyday"... Read more
Purple Stride and Asian Fest
Tuesday, June 12, 2012      17 comments

Saturday was the Purple Stride 5K, which I did in memory of my dad. It was to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Dad died nine years ago from pancreatic cancer, less than a year before retirement. Mom and Dad were supposed ... Read more

They're right... I AM worth it!
Saturday, June 02, 2012      2 comments

We don't necessarily agree on what "it" is, but I am worth it! Today, the "it" for me is a run. I've got too much going on right now and expect it to be that way for at least the rest of the year. I am often overly tired, which means I am... Read more

I was recently feeling discouraged because I feel as though I am not doing enough to make my dreams come true. I know that working two jobs and going to school is making me tired, which makes it more difficult to do some of the other things I w... Read more

I have frequently talked of my goal to walk/run 1000 miles in 2012. When I set that goal for myself, I didn't have quite as much going on as I do today. I met my January, February, and March goals, and came close to meeting April's. I was exh... Read more

When you hear the word "codependency," do you think of alcoholics and their families? I used to. Then one day, a year or two ago I suppose, some very special friends suggested I might be codependent. I vehemently resisted at first, then I beg... Read more

In an effort to take control of my eating habits, I have gone back to SparkGuy's theme of starting small and building a positive streat. Instead of beating myself up for all I feel I am doing wrong, I finally realized it is time to focus on doi... Read more
My coach, my hero
Tuesday, April 24, 2012      12 comments

I just learned my running coach passed away on Sunday. I didn't know him long and I surely didn't know him well, but this quiet, soft-spoken man changed my attitude, my vision, and my life. He is my hero and I am so sad he is gone. Countless ... Read more
Practicing my "no"
Sunday, April 22, 2012      16 comments

A while ago, I was reading a book about codependency (turns out I have been codependent for years, but since it was never related to alcohol or drugs I never had any idea). The author, a licensed psychologist, was telling of a case study from h... Read more

I need help! I am still on-target for my 1000-miles-in-one-year goal. This goal has become so big in my mind that quitting is almost incomprehensible. Yet with all my walking, and even stair climbing, my body shape just won't change. I don't l... Read more

I did it! I once again met my monthly mileage goal! That's three months in a row, and it means I am still on track for my 1000-mile resolution for 2012 (Actually 6.21 miles ahead of schedule ... Read more
