Cooking and eating healthy
Tuesday, August 17, 2010      18 comments

I've always enjoyed cooking, unfortunately the way I used to cook was pretty darn unhealthy...lots of fried foods, baked goods, butter...shew...can't imagine eating like that now (sorry Grandma). During the past 2 years I've really been working... Read more

When I went out for an early morning walk today, it was only 61 degrees...it was so pleasant and comfortable...finally!! Even this afternoon when I went out to water my plants, it still felt nice...I love the cooler temps...guess I'm not much f... Read more

Ran after work Friday evening...then later that night my knee started hurting, not swollen or hot to the touch, just kind of stiff...so decided I'd better baby it for a few days which meant no running this morning even tho it was the perfect wea... Read more

Got my hair cut today, then stopped at the grocery store for a couple things I forgot to get yesterday (that's what not reading your list will do)...while there, an older woman comes up to me and starts talking to me...telling me about her visit... Read more

Had the day off work today...had an appointment to get my hair cut...I wear my hair in a short style now and have to get it cut every 4 weeks to keep it looking good, so I always just schedule my next appointment after I get my hair done...anyho... Read more

What a fun morning I had today. Went to the farmer's market and met a couple of Spark friends from the Bloomington team (FatCat and PKHuntz)...chatted for a while, met their families and had a nice visit...wish I'd thought to take pictures...th... Read more
September 5K

Heard from my niece earlier today (via facebook) that she would come to my first 5K on Sept 18 and take pictures and offer me encouragement...that really made me smile!! Then she went on to say that she'd run my second 5K with me (she is NOT a... Read more
I did it!!

I actually registered for my first 5K today...how exciting (and a little frightening). It's the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer race on Sept 18...my mom died of cancer 20 years ago last month...so this one is for her and for me. Just wish she could be ... Read more
New realization...

Today I ran for 31 minutes straight...who knew I could do that?! I sure didn't! As I was getting closer to the end, it dawned on me that I had really pushed myself today...and with that came the realization that, while I've been working out fo... Read more

I am thrilled with how I'm feeling now...I find myself smiling more, standing taller (and that's a trick for me...I'm pretty short!), feeling stronger, enjoying life so much more!! I attribute these changes to several things I'm doing different... Read more

It seemed like a really long, drawn out day at work today. I haven't been getting enough sleep and that makes everything worse. The sleep thing...I don't know why...I'm winding down early enough and actually getting to sleep early enough, but ... Read more
Taking time for me
Thursday, June 17, 2010      14 comments

One of the things I've realized that I often do to kind of shoot myself in the foot is not take time to relax...my job is go, go, go to the point where I often don't take my full breaks. So I decided to take my lunch and go outside and eat it s... Read more

...and stronger than ever!! I can't believe (well, yes I can because I'm living it) how much better I feel...how much better my eating is...how much stronger I feel...how I'm once again able to avoid eating emotionally!! The pounds are coming ... Read more
