It’s True Confessions Tuesday!! Woot! This week I’m happy to report that most of my confessions are positive I have been faithfully tracking my Weight Watchers POINTS online.

WOW, week EIGHT. That means I’m almost halfway through our training for the San Diego Rock N Roll 1/2 Marathon on June 6, 2010. If you didn’t read last week’s VTNT Diary, it turns out that “run in the hills” made the tendon in my heel all kinds of mad, so they flared up causing […]

Week 7 of my Team in Training program didn’t go exactly as planned. My biggest fear was realized this week, and I was stricken with some mysterious foot pain. More on that later…. Thanks to my donors this week, I’m officially over the $2,o00 mark. I know it’s not showing up on my fundraising page […]

I am sitting in the DFW airport right now! Love free WIFI and charging stations. Where am I heading? To Baltimore, Maryland to attend Fitbloggin’ 10. I am so excited to take this trip and meet up with some amazing women, some for the very first time. People like Melissa, who I’m pretty sure I […]
