As another year winds down, I find myself disappointed, a little sad, and a little mad. Okay, more than a little mad. The backslide I’ve been in continued much too long, and while I have started over many times, I feel this time I really AM starting over. From the beginning. I can point the […]

The first few months of 2017, I have focused more on getting back to setting goals, eating more mindfully, and expanding my strategy to improve my fitness and build a leaner, stronger body. In January, I completed the Ultimate Reset…and I realize I never updated the blog with my results. It was a challenging three weeks, as […]

I’m just over the halfway hump in my 21 day journey called the Ultimate Reset, and wanted to give a little update. If you aren’t familiar with the Reset, here’s the short description: it’s an intense 3-week program that cleans the system and ‘resets’ the body back to factory settings. The first week’s meal plan […]

I don’t really know why, but I was such a big grump this morning. As always, a good run was able to turn my attitude around. Unfortunately, it wasn’t before wrapping up my 5-ish miles with Lexa so she had to put up with my sass. Sorry, friend! Lexa is one friend I can solidly […]

It’s really been two weeks since my last training update? Absolutely. The last days of September were extremely busy as I volunteered all weekend at a local festival and directed a 5k. On top of that was my 18 mile run that I fit in Saturday morning, September 24. I had a running buddy from mile […]

Seeing the weather forecast, I’ve been actually looking forward to this weekend’s long run since Thursday. That’s when I saw it was supposed to be 70 degrees today. After an awfully humid, 75 degree attempt of a run ending in 1.5 miles Wednesday morning, and a humid, 79 degree 5-miler that should have been 8 on […]

Half Marathon #5

in Fitness, Training

After six years of running, you would think I’d know by now to never be foolish enough to assume a run will be easy just because the course is “flat and fast.” For me, there usually is no “fast” anyway, because my pace slowed significantly once I began training for longer distances. But the description, […]

I heard at some point the saying that “willpower is a muscle, it gets stronger the more you use it.” I love that, because it’s so true! I have struggled over the years with consistency, and willpower really helps with that. I started a new round of 21 Day Fix last Monday and it’s awesome […]

Truth hurts

This is a hard post to share. But I am sharing my journey….the ups AND downs. It’s tough when people don’t tell us what we want to hear. Or offer comments, unsolicited, that ruffle our feathers despite being true. I got upset with my husband this morning. As I finished making his lunch, I told […]
