I ran a mile without stopping. 11.58 minutes. I promised my sister Sunday that I would run my mile on Monday. Monday comes, I have an eye appointment, they dialate my eyes so I'm blind, I'm behind on work so I'm running around playing catch u... Read more

When I turned 37 I told myself I would not let the scale lead me and I swore it off for a year. Well, this morning I got on the scale. I had to because my clothes aren't fitting anymore. I HAD to know. So, bad but not as bad as I thought. 128.2.... Read more

Will 37 be my year to shine?
Sunday, November 27, 2011      1 comments

37 years old tomorrow. I'm not sure how I feel about this. I had no problems with 36. I was fit, happy and motivated. A year later I find myself 7ish pounds heavier, flabby, and not motivated. And most assuredly not happy. I know what to do, I k... Read more

Wow! It's been over two months since I've blogged :( Here's a quick update: I made it through about 75 days of p90x then fell off the wagon. Let me tell you, I fell hard. And I'm still falling. I just can't seem to find a way to get back up. I s... Read more
