I just realized that since late September I've stuck been at 90 pounds lost. That means it has been over 2 months with little to no progress (unless you the pounds I gained, then had to lose again from vacation)! Alright December. I got... Read more

Wednesday, November 23, 2011      2 comments

For all the changes I've made this past year, this is one of the harder ones for me to grasp. Which is strange when you consider when I was growing up, the holidays used to be all about family. All the kids would get together to play vario... Read more

Yesterday morning I saw a number blinking up at me that once I had only dreamed about. 159.6. "Don't get too excited." I told myself. "It could be a fluke. Let's see if it stays the same tomorrow." Most of the day was spent wondering if it ... Read more

Ever since I did 10k, I let myself get pulled into a funk. I was .2 away from my first big goal the morning of the run. I worked super extra hard those 2 days to push through my 160 barrier, only to have it not change. We all know how ... Read more

That's not a plateau..
Thursday, September 15, 2011      0 comments

Safety with night runs

I had originally planned this to be an entirely different blog, but last night changed that. I failed to listen to my instinct and as a result, I got a really good scare. Although the outcome turned out fine, it just as easily couldn't have. So ... Read more

Interior: Sisters house, last saturday The blaring of Stone Sour's "So Cold" seemed to shake the small apartment as it went off. I stifled a groan, trying to bury my head beneath the pillow to block it out. Some logical part of my brain tha... Read more
