No, YOU Don't Want Me To.
Wednesday, June 08, 2016      4 comments

In 2005 at age 25, I joined a gym. As the employee gave me the facility tour we had the standard gym conversation. "So, what do you want to get out of your workouts?" I responded, "I want to run my boobs off." He smiled and said, "you ... Read more

There's Time Management and then there's Infant Time Management. The latter is the reason why my two mile treadmill run turned into a 1/2 mile treadmill run. Part of the reason she was screaming, I believe, was because she wanted to watch me run... Read more

With the exception of yesterday, when I just said "to heck with it" and had kids' birthday party food AND Mexican AND copious amounts of chocolate cookies for dinner, staying within my calories is getting easier and easier. And today was lo... Read more

I'm watching a documentary on Netflix about the horrors of sugar. I am most definitely addicted to sugar. I'm not looking to cut it out entirely, but I need to cut out a lot. Being sick this week has helped a bit, although I've had a horrible so... Read more
That's so me.

I went to the gym this evening. I haven't been doing great mentally lately (or physically - I've been sick,) so my husband was all for me leaving the kiddos with him for a while and hitting the gym alone. I did 35 or so minutes on the elliptical... Read more

While I already have a very ambitious race schedule in the works, there are some races that will have to wait a year or two or three. These include: Lincoln Presidential Half Marathon - Springfield, IL (April) http://runabe.srrc.net/ Drak... Read more

I've been under the weather for a couple days with a fever and a nasty sore throat. Before that, my son was sick (he's currently fighting an ear infection.) Before that, my daughter was all congested and gross (and since she's only 5 months old,... Read more

I haven't had any horribly sugary foods in two days. I'm an addict trying to quit. This is ridiculous but I need to get past this. So let it be known that on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, I was on DAY TWO of my "no more eating ridiculous am... Read more

Gaa. I just keep eating. I've done this before. I know that working out is important, but if you're looking for weight loss, the most important thing you can do is watch what you eat. And sure, I've had some tiny victories (no ice crea... Read more

Totally not a #gymfail but I'm so darned hard on myself! When I don't reach my goal I think all is lost. Here's the lowdown: 1. I went to the gym! Yay! 2. This is after nursing my baby back to health - and then catching the same ... Read more
So, I ran outside today.

So I ran outside today. My feet and legs got soaked and muddied from the surprisingly deep puddles created by melting snow. Then my phone died shortly after 2.15 miles so I lost my music and my gps tracking app. Then I lost motivation ... Read more

I ate over 3100 calories today - and I don't feel full. This is pretty normal for me, too, which is scary! Yes, I'm heavier than the last time I was on SP so my BMR is higher than I'm used to (1900) and yes, I'm breastfeeding, which ca... Read more

Two days in a row - it's a healthy miracle. I completed four miles on the treadmill in 53 minutes - and boy, that was tough! I'm proud of myself for getting back on track, but I can't help but wax poetic about the days when a 5k would be m... Read more
