Out of commission.

There aren’t words for how discouraged I am. The injury to my shins hasn’t gone away. I’m pretty sure it was caused by spending time on the treadmill in shoes that were too heavy. I only wore them the one day, but I’m still having calf pain. So I finally realized I have to restContinue reading “Out of commission.”

Struggling but doing it!

I awoke with a dreadful headache and finally took some pain pills. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the gym today. It’s becoming harder and harder to go, especially since I haven’t yet conquered the footwear issue. I think my second pair of new shoes (which will hopefully work better than the first)Continue reading “Struggling but doing it!”

Jump in the pond!

Dear Annie: I’m a mom and have been married for nearly six years. But for the past few years, my husband and I have not been on the same path. We can’t communicate without fighting, bickering, arguing, etc. Our sex life has been nonexistent. And I have tried talking and suggesting that we do moreContinue reading “Jump in the pond!”

Spring cleaning!

So, I’m doing some spring cleaning today! I’m rearranging the furniture while cleaning, and the whole place is a mess. It’s taken a toll on me to be doing the treadmill twice a day! Tonight, I’m taking a break from it as my shower night, even though I don’t see myself having the energy toContinue reading “Spring cleaning!”

Eh, change your outlook.

TRIGGER: SUICIDEĀ (discussed in the context of a tragic news story.) Dear Annie: My ex and I got married when I was 19. We stayed together for 10 years, during which I was dealing with untreated depression. That did not make life easy for either of us. Eventually, he left, leaving me to care for theContinue reading “Eh, change your outlook.”

Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)

That’s what I’m talking about! Heck yes. I went back to the gym this evening and burned 300 more calories at the treadmill. I got a second wind! Who knew that would happen? Go me! It’s been a great day. I got an email stating that there would be no contest results until this timeContinue reading “Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)”

When the going gets tough…

So, I hit a wall. (Don’t worry. It was a metaphorical wall.) I decided last night to go ahead and not expect myself to use the treadmill on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings. That way, I can use those times to take twice-weekly showers, and I’ll still be burning 300 calories 12 times a week,Continue reading “When the going gets tough…”
