It has been a busy few weeks and with us being gifted some pretty amazing weather, I’ve been hard pressed to find any desire to come inside, much less sit in front of the laptop. Today, the weather shifted and it was not only rainy, but also chilly and seemed more like Fall. I did […]

I don’t know how many of you who read this space are aware of this, but I have a goal of running my first 5k when I’m home for the holidays this year. It has been on my radar since our last trip home and even more so now. In preparation, I’ve been running some […]

Ok- Not really in the literal water on the Wicked Witch of the West sense- but in the shedding pounds sense. I finally decided to step on the scales a week into working on my new routine- and what do you know- the scales had started spiraling downward. Yes! Oh Yes~! Needless to say- I’m […]

Today I started back really working towards my training for a 5k- and really paying attention to my own health and eating well. Don’t get me wrong, on the whole I DO eat well most of the time but I could see a few bad habits creeping in and I honestly wasn’t feeling good about […]

I bought these shoes a while back because I thought it would be good while trying to train for a 5K to actually have ‘running shoes’ as opposed to Crocs to run in.   I know- it sounds crazy (and probably looked even crazier), but those Crocs made some pretty good running shoes. I will admit […]

Ever since the weekend before my birthday- life has taken an unexpected ‘insanely’ busy turn and I’ve been constantly on the go. By the time evening rolls around and I have a little time to myself, I am ready to turn off the computer and relax. It doesn’t help that it has been warm and […]

Well this is week two of the couch to 5k training, and I decided that we’d stick with the first week’s plan. I know that I could easily move on to week 2 (well easily may be stretching it), but I know that Marcel is complaining about what we are doing now, so I’m going […]
