Pittsburgh fall weather today = 80 degrees and blue skies. I opened the windows and started cooking for soup season. I’m stuffing my freezer full of different soups so I can pull-out a bowl when I need some comfort from the cold.
As many know, I like beer, and I cook with beer quite [...]
It’s been four months since my initial start to a better me. One week from today, I will be running my first 5k. Over the past four months, I’ve not only increased my running speed and distance, I’ve increased in my strength training, and yoga performance. I’ve lost over 40 pounds and I’m now in [...]
Day 1. Running at 5.0 for 2.68 miles. I didn’t use the incline this time. I actually think the runs are easier around 4PM than 6AM. Unfortunately, I’m not always home at 4. I really wasn’t in the mood to run today, but of course it got easier as I did it. I kept thinking, [...]

Broiled Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa, Steamed Veges and Bhutanese Red Rice all for 345 calories. Yummy!
I was terrified of what this week would bring. Especially, when British Laura says, “It is important that you must complete weeks 1-5 before moving onto this week.”
Day 1. Unlike the last day of last week jogging for 20 minutes, it starts at 5 and 8 minute increments of running. I actually had a [...]
I only ran 10 minutes each run the other day. Today, my British accented trainer said, “Okay. Today you are going to run for 20 minutes. You can do it.” I thought, “There’s no way.” After a time which felt longer than 20 minutes, she says, “Okay. You’ve run for five minutes.” It usually takes [...]
The past month, I’ve been dieting and getting back into shape. Damn, it’s a bitch to get started everyday but afterwards I feel tired and go to sleep. Sleeping very well, I might add. This week scale read 1 something (not going to share) but I’ve lost 17 pounds. Not that I am extremely overweight; [...]
