Overdue

Tweet It really has been almost a month since I blogged. With good reason. Seriously it’s been a wild crazy busy couple of months and the stress level has been pretty high. I meant to update at the end of October – remember I had some goals? 1) I will not only log into MyFitnessPal…

Losing Steam

Tweet I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I was really working hard on my goals for October and to be honest I feel like I did pretty good, not 100% consistent, but I really worked hard to get my running and my gym time in. I didn’t log my food on MFP every day…

What if there were no prize?

Tweet I know what you are going to say. “The prize is your health” “The prize is having a long and fit life” I know. I really do. But seriously some days I just think this is so hard. All this hard work. All the effort. Planning, scheduling, running, racing, working out, getting fit, being…

Wednesday Food Fail?

Tweet Ok not a total fail but as you all know I’ve been jet setting all over the place so I haven’t made a new recipe for nearly two weeks. I’m slowly getting back in my own time zone rhythm and I’ll resume the amazing and wondrous food fest postings next week. But I want…

Week In Review:: 4 Dec – 11 Dec

Tweet This post should be titled: The Week that Wasn’t or alternatively: Don’t be like me and eat crap all week But alas, I’m going with the standard Week in Review Post… You know when people talk about motivation, I find myself thinking about the post that I wrote some time ago and I truly…

Here we go again

Tweet I felt it coming on. That feeling of sadness. Frustration. Anger. I knew it was coming and I *think* I tried to stop it but eventually it washed over me. That feeling that no matter what I do, it doesn’t matter. That feeling that no matter how much I think of other good, positive…

Quit What?

Tweet I really wanted to start writing more often and had visions of brilliant prose flowing from my brain to my fingers on a regular basis. The reality is, I haven’t got a lot to say, and even when I try to think of things to say, it’s a lot of the same stuff over…

A Confession out of Sheer Desperation

Tweet Well, it’s confession time folks. Remember when I quit Weight Watchers because I’d had enough? Enough of trying to make ProPoints work for me. Enough of feeling like a failure. Enough of feeling miserable because I was hungry. I could do this on my own. I knew what to do. More than 10 years…
