A few weeks ago, I started a new exercise plan. I was motivated. I was focused. I was 100% dedicated to seeing it through. And then my world kind of imploded. My husband’s accident and becoming a full-time student once more came in the same week. I could have handled maintaining my exercise plan and … [Read more…]

The new calendar for writing assignments came out last week. I saw that my first post was on October 6 and it said Saturday Review. I immediately knew what I would do. I had received a new FitBit to replace my old one that had broken. Somehow, somewhere, it was just gone one day. I reached in my … [Read more…]

I have been doing a lot of walking and hiking lately. The picture is from Sunday when I went and did some hiking out at Coffee Creek Park with Katie and Hoss. I liked being out with them because Hoss doesn’t let you stop and rest. He keeps you moving at all times. Tonight, I walked four and a … [Read more…]

June 2 was the day before my stepdad had his medical emergency. That explains why I forgot about writing this post sooner. It was also the day that I jumped on the train to Chicago with my friend for the Self Workout in the Park event. It was only the second day of June, but it was a hot one and … [Read more…]

If you run, Zumba, crossfit or kickbox, if you do pretty much any kind of exercise, your feet take a beating. Sometimes they need some TLC!

I was with a friend at a cook out over Labor Day weekend when we got to talking about an upcoming 10k and 5k  in our area.  Like me, she is relatively new to the whole running thing. When I looked at the registration form online, I grew a bit intimidated.  It had too many details about the pace in … [Read more…]

There’s a clean slate-feeling to September, isn’t there? The lazy (hah!) days of summer are behind us. The new notebooks … [Read more…]

I wrote this post before reading Christie’s post about negative chatter and Barb’s post about celebrating fitness and what our bodies can do.  Apparently, all of our great minds are in the same place- GREATLAND!!!  Join us. ******************************************* The only folks I pass on the … [Read more…]

I passed  a man last night who was out for a walk. As soon as I saw him, I was reminded of all the articles you see in magazines that talk about people who started walking 5 minutes because that’s all they could do. Eventually, they started walking more and more and more and then it led … [Read more…]

I joined a local running club last year  to help in my quest to transition from a walker to a runner.  We meet on Sunday mornings for a group run. By  Monday morning, our coach emails us our “homework” for the week. The homework varies, depending on whether you are in the 5k, 10k, or half marathon … [Read more…]
