My part of the #PathToFit campaign with Garmin and Whole Foods is coming to an end this week. Each week they have given us topics to talk about and we get to “run” with them and make them ours. It’s been nice having someone give me a topic to think about rather than getting lost […]

I survived and THRIVED on Whole30 this past January. My weight stayed right around where I was in the fall but I lost over 4 1/2 inches. A solid inch from each thigh was the icing on the cake, that I won’t be eating 😉 This Whole30 challenge was very different for me than the […]

I’m less active in winter, there is no way around it. I enjoy snow, but not being cold. I’d prefer to look at the fresh snowfall from the comfort of my couch with a cup of tea in hand, than get all bundled up and head outside. During the summer I can’t spend enough time […]

I’m a big fan of fitness DVD’s. For starters, they are less expensive than a gym membership. Secondly you can do them in the privacy of your own home. You can make all the mistakes you want, and not feel the same pressure you would in a classroom filled with other people who seem to […]

We are 11 days in to 2015, and I don’t know about you, but right about now  my goals for this year seem hard to focus on. The temperature outside is 18 degrees and I’m dreaming of being on the beach rather than getting outside to run. But focus we must if 2015 is the […]

I’ve received a bunch of emails after my last couple of posts and an overarching theme with them seems to be related to social media.

As I started to write out all the changes I’ve made, I realized just how many changes have happened. I didn’t do them all at once like I have in the past, I did them little by little. The changes have become part of my life, a habit if you will, that I no longer think […]

As of today I’m down 7 pounds, which is half a pound less than yesterday. I am working on cutting out all the extra salt I use, and I credit that to the .5 drop in one day. Water weight. Here is a before picture from this summer. Some of you may look at this […]

I highly recommend skipping a long run or changing up your schedule if you are sick. There are however going to be situations where you still need to get it in and will have to make the best of a not fun situation. The weekend before last I skipped Marine Corps Marathon – I had […]

Sunday am I snuck out to run 4 quick miles before watching the finish of the NYC marathon. I ran around the historic town and discovered a new to me street I haven’t run on. I happened to find some AMAZING houses that should we ever move again, I totally want to move in to. I have a […]
