Why Is There An Obesity Epidemic In America?

Why is there an obesity epidemic in America? I’ll tell you why, because we eat too much! Not only that, but we eat too much of the wrong things! I remember growing up eating out at a restaurant was for special events. McDonalds? That was maybe a once a month treat, or more than likely […]

I’m still running …. And losing!

I haven’t given an update on my weight loss journey and running life for a while, so I thought I’d share my progress today. I have set four goals for myself: the weight I was at 41, the weight I was prior to getting pregnant with my third child, the weight I was prior to […]

Weight Watchers Update – I’ve lost 14 pounds!

I may not be getting paid $4 million to endorse them like Jessica Simpson, but I can say that so far, Weight Watchers is working for me! Even though my official weigh-in’s are on Sunday, I weigh myself in the mornings just to check my progress and as of this morning, I’ve officially lost 14 […]

I’ve Lost 10 Pounds and am starting TRX!

It’s official! I’ve lost 10 pounds since joining Weight Watchers on July 1! While I’m really proud of myself for losing it, when I pick up a 10 pound weight and feel how much 10 pounds really is, I am amazed! I can actually see the difference in how my clothes are fitting and how […]

Cake Batter Protein Shake?

Let me start off this post by saying I LOVE Cake Batter Ice Cream. When the family takes a little trip to Cold Stone Creamery, I ask for a child-sized cup of Cake Batter ice cream. Nothing on it, because I’m a purist. Well, the other day I was reading my Runner’s World magazine on […]

I’m a runner!

It’s official, I’m a runner now! I roll out of bed in the mornings (every morning except Sunday) and put on my running gear. I made myself a playlist specifically for my run so I’m not checking the timer on my iPhone anymore to see how long I’ve run. I know when I get to […]

Weight Watchers is working! Plus, another C5k update

I weighed in for my weekly Weight Watchers tracker on Sunday and had lost another 2 pounds. That brings my grand total so far to 8 pounds! I can see the difference! The best part? I have not felt restricted in what I’m eating at all. Saturday we went to a steakhouse and I ordered […]

Triathlon anyone?

I know, I can’t believe that I’m actually considering doing this. When you say the word, Triathlon, many people associate it with the Ironman Triathlon and that thing is brutal. Wikipedia describes it like this: An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) consisting […]

Couch to 5K and Weight Watchers

I meant to post on this earlier this week, but I am now running 20 minutes straight without stopping! I set my timer for 8 minutes, but as I approached the 8 minute mark, I felt so good, I just hit reset on the 8 minutes and kept running. When it got to the end […]

Couch to 5K – Week Whatever!

Because of schedules, laziness, and anything else I can think of, I did not run at all last week. I had great excuses (not wanting to leave the kids alone and sleeping while I ran, what if something happened to me while I was running and my husband wasn’t home to call — he was […]
