What Now?

After spending the better part of the last year planning and fundraising for the DC 3-Day and all of my free time the last couple of months training I’ve been enjoying a little bit of down time.  I’ve enjoyed some weekend morning snuggle sessions with the boys and leisurely breakfasts with the family.  I’ve stayed in my PJs way later than I should! But I’m also feeling a bit at loose ends.  I have a lot of found time that I didn’t have a few weeks ago and I don’t want to loose the motivation for physical activity I have … Read more

Accountability – Week 13

May was a terrible month for training (and accountability) but I am back!  I didn’t have a stellar week but I walked more miles than was called for this weekend.  It felt good.  After pushing the boys for seven miles yesterday, today’s 4 mile walk was a piece of cake.  I invested in my “hydration system” — who knew there was such a thing? And picked up some different brands of socks to see which ones I like the best.  I’m really looking forward to next weekend when we have some “girl walks” planned.  It’s been a busy couple of … Read more

Get a Grip

May. May is just a hard, stressful month for me.  There’s a lot of good in May, but it all seems to be overtaken by my mom’s death.  It hangs over me and the month sucks the energy right out of me. Compound that with three weekends out of town, over 70 hours in the car with two toddlers, cleaning out my parent’s house and a really heavy workload.  May has kicked my ass.  To cope, I gave up taking care of me.  When something had to give, I gave up my time to walk.  When my emotions took over … Read more

Accountability – Week 8

It’s here.  Tomorrow starts the official count down to the walk.  Tomorrow starts the official training schedule.  I am so excited.  I am so ready for this.  The first couple weeks should be a breeze but then miles start stacking up quickly.  My game face is on!  I am determined to rock this walk.  And 8 weeks!  EIGHT WEEKS.  That’s like two months.  I’ve been doing this accountability thing for two whole months and it’s working.   I’ve talked before about how easily I tend to give up on things.  I have to say I am very happy with how consistent … Read more
