We went to the gym and did some weight machines this morning. It's been a long time and it felt good. I wanted to fix some eggs for breakfast after we got back, but the stupid carton they came in was flimsy. I think it originally had about 2 ... Read more

Well, I blew it again today. I succumbed to my sugar addiction and ate four Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. The sugar crash led me straight to bed, wasting one of my precious few nights home alone. I woke up around 8:00 p.m. I would have preferred ... Read more

I woke up pretty sore again today. I think maybe I did a little too much at Saturday's 5K, but I just felt so doggone good! Today begins my 10K training. Day one is "rest or walk." I did a two-mile walk DVD, but kept the movements low. ... Read more

Today's the 5K. I got a good night's sleep, woke up early, and am having a small, healthy breakfast. When we were handing out race packets yesterday, one volunteer said to a participant, "Have a good run tomorrow." The participant replied, "I... Read more

Uhm, was I good today or bad?

I didn't meet my 1000 minutes goal for August. Also, I am so far behind on my marathon-in-10-days goal, there's no chance that's happening. I had a candy bar today and a cookie. I didn't exercise at all. I cleaned though. I didn't help ... Read more
Consistency is Key

I *know* this, but I still need to *learn* it. I was up very late this morning downloading music, so I didn't get much sleep. I am so stinking tired! I am sure the way I have been eating hasn't helped at all, but having a more consistent bedt... Read more

Wow! I've been busy making up quite a crazy schedule! It's so exciting to think of all these upcoming race events though, I don't feel crazy at all! Maybe a little psyched, but not psycho! We'll see how it goes, but for now, it seems fun. ... Read more

I need to get in 48 fitness minutes per day for the rest of the month to earn the 1000 minute trophy. Tomorrow needs to be a light day because Saturday is the 5K. I have been squeezing in stairs here and there for just a few minutes at a time ... Read more
