I had a nice post planned out for today but I’m left feeling blah.  It’s probably not blah, just tired.  Yesterday I should have taken a rest day, but I didn’t.  It was just going to be an easy day. I was just going to take the dogs on a walk. I don’t walk them at the same time because they act stupid and like they aren’t trained. I have to take them one at a time. I took Master first and I walked a little over a mile. Then I took Stinkie and walked about a mile and then… View Post

I am proud to announce I’ve been selected to be a Black Fitness Today Ambassador! Among many other great things getting our story out there has done, this is probably one of the most important things for ME to be able to do.

I’m running the full marathon and he’s running the half marathon. I printed out the training plans… View Post

I’ve had rough start to the week and my mind has been playing tricks on me. If you didn’t know, I’ve been taking swimming lessons because I have this crazy idea of becoming a triathlete. I like to run and I LOVE my bike, but I can’t swim very well. Let me be honest, I thought I could swim a little bit but I was wrong. On Monday I had a swimming lesson and I got frustrated with myself. My mind was already NOT there concentrating on the pool and I had previously ran 3 miles and rushed off to… View Post

Reading the site you always see about my weight loss journey and all the things that come along with it and it’s left people wondering what else am I about. This is just a little something that you can find out a little bit more about me. Yes, some of it is still exercise related but that is a PART of me too. 1. I’m obsessed with this song. It’s hit my running playlist and just a song I listen to in the car! I watched Princesses of Long Island and this was the theme song. Every week I said… View Post
