Losing Steam

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 and…

What if there were no prize?

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 involved,…

Phew! I made it!

It was a ROUGH week, at least from a work perspective. It’s busy, people are still on vacation, it’s end of the month, it’s almost end of the year… there’s just a LOT going on. I wanted more than anything to run twice and go to the gym once this week and I DID IT.…

Three Years

Today is my wedding anniversary. Three years ago the hubs and I got married in Las Vegas with just a few people who were able to come and join us. We didn’t officially invite loads of people on purpose. We just wanted it to be small, intimate. In fact how it turned out is that…

What Happens When Pinky Diets

Warning: this is not going to be a positive post. This is going to be a ranting one. Feel free to completely skip it if you like. If I can’t bitch in my own blog then why pay the hosting fees, right? I’m sitting here, it’s day 3 of the “new” diet – the one…

A Bust

This week has been one. I went running on Monday and on Wednesday night I went to bed early… those two things were probably the most positive I did for myself. When the holidays are over I’m truly going to enjoy my nice little controlled planned life again! Or rather I should say my ROUTINE.…

Week In Review:: 4 Dec – 11 Dec

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 believe…

Here we go again

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 things,…

Damage. Control.

One of the things I decided on Sunday was that I was going to stay in control this week. I think something that I’ve lost control of a long time ago is my belief in myself. It sounds strange maybe, but when you “do everything” possible to see the scale move downwards and it doesn’t…

Week In Review:: 30 Oct – 6 Nov

Sometimes I say I can’t even remember what I did yesterday, so I thought I would try to recap my weeks on Sundays, to celebrate the good stuff and perhaps learn a thing or two from the not-so-good stuff. Last week Sunday I didn’t do much. We had the kids last weekend and pretty much…
