About Me

This year I’m continuing my journey toward getting into better shape and losing some weight. This involves simply making better food choices, tracking calories, less time sitting on my butt/more time moving, and running. Beginning to run anyway. I’ve got a long way to go.

I also lost my dad earlier this year so I’ll be discussing my ongoing battle with reconciling my feelings about the loss and moving on.

I work from home so I often feel the need to say “did you hear that, did you see that, omg can you believe……” but there’s no one there to talk to, therefore I blog. I don’t want to be one of those people who Facebooks or Tweets every thought that runs through my head.

Some basic tidbits about me:

  • I’m 40-ish
  • Married
  • Have lost about 40 pounds in the last year
  • Active stuff: Walking, running, yoga, geocaching.
  • Hobbies I love that involve sitting on my butt: I play flute, piccolo, and fife, knitting & crochet, going to the symphony, board games, eating.
  • I love coffee, sleeping, cats, and when big dogs refrain from jumping on me when I’m out running.
  • I am frequently moody but attempt to view the world with glass half full attitude.
  • My eating plan: Count calories, make good choices, satisfy cravings but by making smart choices (i.e. one piece of very good dark chocolate vs whole bag of M&Ms).
  • My running gear: Nike Pegasus 28s, SmartWool running socks, compression capris, super heavy duty sports bra, iPhone, RoadID, sunglasses, attitude.

Shinsplints are my nemesis so get used to seeing my legs covered with bags of various frozen veggies.
