Pardon my rambling but I really need some positive vibes (this has nothing at all to do with diet, fitness, or health, other than my mental health/sanity since I DESPISE my current job ;))... To make a long story somewhat short, my husband ... Read more

C25k Week 4, Day 1
Saturday, August 28, 2010      3 comments

I was worried about this one after reading that Week 4 seems to be QUIT week for a lot of people, but I DID IT! I ran into a minor setback the last minute of the 2nd 5 minute run (had to slow from 6.5 to 6), but I think it was only because... Read more
Judgment

In the real world I am kinda shy and introverted, until I get to know you. I'm very self-conscious and I don't like to go places by myself. I don't like to be "judged." When I joined Weight Watchers, I joined with a friend from work. During... Read more

I am so sick of hearing this! Why does everyone else think they know what's best for me? It's MY life and I will decide what's best for ME! I really wanted to work on my Week 4 playlist tonight but got caught up on my farm - why is facebook... Read more

Had a really good run tonight! I wasn't gasping for breath at the end of the second 3 minute run this time so I even added an extra set (I didn't want to stop!) I'm looking forward to w3d3 but think I need to make some changes to my playlist- so... Read more

Yes you heard me right. I said treadmill dancing! Today was supposed to be my rest day but I was so cranky and miserable today that I had to do something to get into my happy place. I plugged my mp3 player into the treadmill, did my warm ... Read more

Not having a good day :( I'm guessing Aunt Flo is about to make her unwelcome appearance because I am ready to bitchslap the next person who talks to me. Besides that, I feel like I could eat an entire house today. I won't even menti... Read more

So I was just reading over the few blogs I wrote (typed) when I first started up here almost 2 years ago. I gotta say I almost busted out laughing when I read my comment about trying to contain my 38DD's! I definitely do not have that problem an... Read more

I really need to write more often [sigh]. I won a Polar F11 HRM on Ebay last week for $100.01. Beat someone out by $.02 hehe. It was the exact one I was planning on buying so I was ecstatic to get it for more than $50 less! It arrived 2 d... Read more
