Hair and shoes, wow what a difference.

I'm not too sure about the hair. I had to have a lot of length taken off due to breakage from pulling it back into ponytails. I'm now researching headbands so I can grow it back out. It's a new color, as well as a new cut. I think it makes m... Read more

Today I went over my calorie range. (Good thing I already weighed in for my maintenance team challenge!) It started innocently enough, a colleague brought in mini blueberry muffins and homemade chocolate chip, banana and cranberry bread. I had... Read more
New hair and exercising

Yesterday I got in a 60 minute walk before I went and had my hair done. New cut and color. It was much needed as I had so much breakage at the bottom. My younger daughter stated that the hair ties that I use when I pull my hair into a ponytail... Read more
Symbols of a runner
Monday, November 17, 2014      14 comments

I started thinking about my running and what exactly makes one a runner? You have the visible symbols like a Road ID on your wrist. Maybe it even has an extra 13.1 on the side of the personal information. There are the norms; shoes, shorts, run... Read more
Stiff and sore this morning.

I am NOT complaining as I do kind of like when I'm a little sore after a workout. It tells me that I "did something" and that I worked hard. After reading responses and talking to family and a fellow runner, I am going to look into a chirop... Read more
I wish this would end!

I've used my elliptical every day this week. I'm trying to figure out how to run in frigid temps. Tonight I decided to get a run in before the snow comes. It was a little over 4 miles, but right away my left leg started complaining. I've... Read more

I went for my first "longer" run since the Double Half Mary at the beginning of the month. I went 7.65 miles, but it took me 90 minutes. I felt pretty good, but if it's not my lower right back complaining it's my left hamstring. Once the hams... Read more

On the run!

This week I've been on the run a lot! The good thing is yesterday I literally was on the run. I ran 3 miles! Still having a few complaints from the body, but I'm doing a lot of stretching. I'm determined that I'm not going to let it hold me ba... Read more
I need to refocus.

This will be short as it's a similar story that many of us have experienced. I've had ups and downs with the eating and exercising. Some days are good and some not-so-good. My body is telling me that it's time to refocus and get back to cleane... Read more

I went to "coffee shop church" tonight. The topic of the sermon was being blessed. Our pastor and my mom went to Jamaica on a mission trip. While they were there, they visited an "Infirmary" as the locals called it. It was basically a retire... Read more

I'll admit, yesterday's eating wasn't great. Today has been much better, even with the cupcake I just ate! I ran a little over four miles this morning. It was ... Read more

This week we have daily "themes" for Red Ribbon week. Yesterday was pajama day, or sweats day in my case. Today it's the 80's and I'm wearing a t-shirt that my husband wore when he was 16. No he can't wear it any longer, but I can! Today ... Read more
