The Story of Smoking Grandma
Thursday, September 30, 2010      7 comments

This past summer, almost every morning I'd run in the neighbourhood, I'd come across this older woman walking a baby in the stroller. 2 things drew my attention: 1) the baby looks to be about the same age as B and 2) this woman would be smoking... Read more

"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body... Read more
Sleep goals not going very well
Sunday, August 22, 2010      2 comments

It's almost the end of August, and I have gotten out of bed before 4 am a grand total of...twice. It is so disappointing and I am beyond angry at myself for failing at this simple goal of getting up 15 minutes earlier than I have been. I have f... Read more

Wednesday, July 28, 2010      11 comments

Every night, I ask my husband what time he needs to leave in the morning so I can do my workout and be back accordingly. Tomorrow, it's 7:30. Over the next few days, I am getting up 5 minutes earlier each morning, but I have been procrastinati... Read more
Sleep is completely overrated
Sunday, July 25, 2010      4 comments

I slept from 11pm-7am for the first time in who knows how long? I will never learn that this doesn't work for me. Supposedly less sleep leads to more belly fat and more calories consumed. I eat the same amount, and my belly fat responds to... Read more

I saw a picture of a marathon bib on someone's profile on FB - a high school acquaintance who got unfriended because I realized I don't like her any more now than I did 13 years ago. Then I looked up her bib number to see her time, discovered t... Read more

It's a scorcher here today, and I would LOVE to be at the water park today, floating down the lazy river. The last time I posted a belly pic, I was 6 days PP. I just read a blog post from someone basically saying that your body is totally ... Read more
