Hey, everyone! Happy Monday! It was a great weekend! On Saturday, my husband and I went to the gym and had a great workout! I’m just so excited about the progress I’m making with my strength. I’m up to 115 pounds on the deadlift, and I can push 255 pounds on the prowler. I’m carrying… Continue reading Logging food – EYE OPENING
Hey there! I hope your weekend is going great! It was 68 degrees yesterday in my neck of the woods, so you can betcha I was outdoors for a run! I ended up doing 5 miles, and can you believe I was wearing a tank top and shorts? In February? Love it! After all of… Continue reading What’s for breakfast?
I’ve been absent for a bit. I haven’t been inspired to write anything, and nothing exciting is going on. I don’t want to bore people with my normal routine of work, exercise, and what I’m eating. This morning, however, I saw this clip of Ricky Gervais on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and it… Continue reading I love food….and wine.

Seriously, though, I will continue to view age as a state of mind, and I can promise you that I… Continue reading Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought, “Damn, look at me! I’m so sexy!” Nope. Haven’t done that. I look back at images at myself when I was young and thin and even back then, I always thought there was something wrong with my body. I see my daughters doing the same thing.… Continue reading Monday Musings: Body Image
A few weeks ago, I decided that I was indulging way too much in wine and beer, especially on the weekends, and it was leading to bad nutritional decisions. Because I’m in the midst of marathon training, I decided that I needed to stop drinking. Period. For 30 days. Yesterday was day 23 of the… Continue reading Slippery Slope Syndrome
It’s Sunday already??? Geesh, the weekends fly by way too fast! It’s been a great weekend for me so far, although I must admit, I was worried it wouldn’t be. Earlier in the week, I decided to give up alcohol for 30 days. I’ve been trying to get myself back on track with eating healthy… Continue reading 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge Day 7
It’s Thursday and we’re getting close to the weekend! How has your week been so far? I’ve had a really good week. My eating has been on track and I’ve done all of the workouts on my marathon training plan. However, this tends to be my pattern. I do really well during the week and then on… Continue reading Athlete mentality
Sometimes I come up with these crazy ideas. But in my defense, the ideas usually stem from necessity. Although the Chicago Marathon isn’t until October, which seems like a really long time from now, in truth October is going to be here before I know it. And the really long runs are going to be… Continue reading 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge
