Starting over - not quite, but that is how it feels!
Sunday, January 11, 2015      4 comments

It has been more than a year since major stress hit my life, and workouts came to a halt. I tried to get back into them again a few months ago, and started doing ok with that, but my eating was still out of control, and so while I didn't gain f... Read more

Like last year, I signed up for the Portland to Coast Walking Relay race... Our entire team returned from last year, and I agreed to the same legs of the race I walked (since I knew the route). I wanted to train for it, to see if I could beat ... Read more

I have to be honest, I have been weighing myself almost daily even though I wasn't on Spark People, and I thought I could manage my weight without tracking anything. After all, I had lost over 70 lbs, right? I knew what I was doing right and w... Read more

I have been offline for quite some time, logging in once in a great while, but not tracking anything since October. I have had a rough go lately, going through a very nasty divorce, moving, still maintaining a 4.0 GPA in school while I work ful... Read more

This morning was the annual Race for the Cure in beautiful downtown Portland. I signed up a few weeks ago as part of my company sponsored team, and was one of only 2 or 3 that ran in the timed 5k from our team. This was my first official 5k, a... Read more
PTC started something!

After walking in the PTC last weekend, I have been inspired. Two days after the race, my knee stopped hurting. I think it was just yelling at me because it hasn't had that good of a workout in a very long time. But I don't think I did any dam... Read more

My neighbor was getting rid of a bike. My DH thought it would be great for my daughter. But her BF just gave her a bike his dad put together and she said the one the neighbor was selling didn't feel right. So my DH looked at me. I have a har... Read more

I spent six days in Colorado with my beautiful MOM (pics added) at the end of June/beginning of July. The day I left, I got a cortisone injection in my shoulder, and this time, it seemed to do the trick. No pain or stiffness, and I have been a... Read more

After about 5-6 weeks of not being able to workout because of a shoulder injury, I finally broke down and decided to get on the treadmill today after work. I started walking at a decent pace (3.6 mph at a 10% incline) and started to feel the it... Read more

The Scale Lied... And So Do My Clothes!
Monday, April 29, 2013      5 comments

A few weeks back, I found out that my bathroom scale was off... and not by a pound or two, either. My doctor's scale said I was WAY over what my bathroom scale said. So, my mom (THANK YOU, MOM!!!) got me a new scale. It came Saturday (ordere... Read more

These are all random thoughts floating through, which only have in common that they happened in the last week... So if you follow my blog at all, you know that I have started back to school full time to finish my degree. I am in an adult d... Read more

First, a little history: my hubby doesn't work outside the home. He takes care of the house, the finances, the kids (mine from previous relationship) and he does 90% of the food prep and shopping for the household. He makes my lunches for work... Read more
