First, February goals review: 1. Water. Yeah, a great big FAIL on this one :( I did really good for about 3 days and then went right back to my coffee. I do drink at least one 20oz bottle of water after a long run though ;) 2. R... Read more

I worked at WW this morning and then my husband wanted to go to Sports Authority to use up his gift card. I figured I would be okay since I don't really NEED anything right now. I do need some new earbuds but I took care of that yesterday, and o... Read more

Lately I've been obsessed with finding the "perfect" running app for my Evo. I had only used Endomondo up until recently, but with most of my runs lately (ok, *ALL* of my runs lately) being on the treadmill, I needed to find something that woul... Read more

I was going through some old photo albums and I found my real "before" pic. I had mentioned a while back that I would eventually share my whole story, but I still really do not care to remember the couple of years surrounding this picture. ... Read more

Ok so, for those of you who know me, my husband and I moved in November and since then I've been in kind of a funk. I'm not happy with school, and I can't find a "normal" job. Don't get me wrong- I do love working for Weight Watchers, but 2... Read more

Hiya, feels like it's been forever since I've been able to spend any time on here. I'm still doing my daily spin and weigh-in, but that's been about it since the move. I miss my spark buddies! Had to stop and write that this morning I saw t... Read more
