Awesome August - Week 1
Saturday, August 06, 2011      4 comments

And another one bites the dust! The first week of the August MOMMY to WOWWY Bootcamp challenge is coming to an end. One the health and fitness front, the week was relatively low-key. I did fairly well with my eating, aside from one day that w... Read more
Ready to Crash

What a loooooong day! I was up at 5:30 in an effort to make my 6:00 am appointment for bloodwork. Despite the intense humidity (think pea soup) I decided to take advantage of being up so early and get my run out of the way. The hubby had shif... Read more
How to Stop Night-time Snacking
Thursday, August 04, 2011      5 comments

It's simple, you schedule bloodwork, the kind that requires fasting, for 6 a.m. in the morning. It's that easy. No snacking after 7:00 p.m. ... Read more
I've Got the Munchies!
Wednesday, August 03, 2011      4 comments

And nothing to munch on! I actually ate a decent lunch prior to coming into work today, so I figured that the lone peach sitting at my desk would hold me for the afternoon. Boy, was I wrong! It's not that I've been overly hungry either, I jus... Read more
Good Intentions...

I had every intention of blogging and getting in a yoga workout last night. Around 9:00 I snuggled up with my dear, feverish, teething baby girl to nurse her to sleep. I had planned on getting up as soon as she was out, doing at least 30 minut... Read more
Such a Long Blog for What Seemed to be Such a Short Month
Sunday, July 31, 2011      3 comments

I sit here dumbfounded, almost confused. Where, oh where, did July go? I feel like it was just yesterday that I wrote my monthly recap blog for June. Tomorrow starts August, which I am certain will pass just as quickly as July. Before I know... Read more

Friday, July 29, 2011      3 comments

I don't really know how to explain this week. I feel like I have been in a rut. My mood has been 'off' and apparently it's showing because people keep asking me if I'm 'okay'... it's had it's ups and downs with work, and it's been busy with e... Read more
A Little is Better than Nothing

I had very good intentions this morning. I was planning to do my 6-mile training run, but I woke up to find my house guests already stirring. I wasn't comfortable ditching them for the entire hour it would've taken me to complete my run, so I ... Read more

Despite a restless night where I got maybe all of 5 hours of sleep, I forced myself to get up and run this morning. I did 4 1/2 miles with the jogging stroller in 45 minutes, and I must admit, it felt great! I almost got a runners' high. Eve... Read more
Take me Out to the Ball Game
Monday, July 25, 2011      3 comments

The bad news is, calorie-wise, I blew it at dinner tonight. The good news is , I planned for it by eating lightly throughout the day AND I tracked every bite, holding myself accountable. And when it was all said and done, I only went over ... Read more
July - Week 3 Recap
Saturday, July 23, 2011      2 comments

This week got off to a slow start. The first couple of days I was just off; I don't know how else to put it. I had a headache, no energy whatsoever, I was just blah. Despite that, I managed to get workouts in (both cardio and strength) all da... Read more

There is no other word for it, well, except maybe sweamiserable, but it doesn't quite have the same ring to it. It's almost midnight, pitch black outside, and the thermometer still reads 87 degrees. I am sitting in the only air conditioned roo... Read more
It's Official...

If I am going to train for an October 1st HM, I need to haul my rear out of bed earlier in the morning. Starting my run at 8:00 am just doesn't cut it when the thermometer is already reading close to 80 degrees. After pushing the jogging strol... Read more
Finally Starting to Feel like Myself Again
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      4 comments

I don't know what it was, but the 2-3 day funk I was in has finally left the building. My energy levels have returned, and my mood has improved. I am, however, having a hard time adjusting at the office now that I am the only one there. It's... Read more
July Challenge - Week 2
Saturday, July 16, 2011      5 comments

All in all, I felt that week 2 went fairly well. I did extremely well with my caloric intake, especially thanks to the 'fresh freggie' part of the challenge. I got a run and/or walk in everyday, as well as biked to and from work. I alos cont... Read more
