Let's do this, week 2! Short and sweet, here are the goals for the week: Start Trim Healthy Mama (has anyone done this? Any tips?) Walk 1.25 miles twice Eat 3 salads Drink 56 ounces of water every day Do weight training twice Do at least 4,250 steps per day That's it. Still easy, but... Continue Reading →
For the past few weeks I've been looking at pictures of me from when I was training for the Disneyland Half Marathon. "Wow," I thought, "look how fit I was." Not skinny, mind you, but fit. I wasn't someone who had to work hard to get 4,000 steps in a day. I wasn't someone who... Continue Reading →

During the last two weeks, I've tried to walk three times per week. Therefore, I've walked six times. Obviously, I'm ready for a 10K! Not so much. Last Sunday... Continue Reading →
Normally I love the BolderBoulder. This year, I'm shaking in my boots.

I'm doing the Disneyland Half Marathon again. But this time, I'm going to do it well.
