No. I run, but I am not a runner. A few weeks ago, my fellow CFF blogger Leigh Anne wrote this post about being an active and fit family.  Leigh Anne did such a great job offering ways to stay active and included some really awesome links to local running groups.  Since the weather is getting warmer and it…   [Read the full article]


Row of Exercise Bikes

With a few rainy days last week and more rain this week I have been lagging a bit with my workout routine.  Since the warm weather has arrived we have been going to the park to get our walk/run in each day.  Not only do my husband and I get our workout done, but the…   [Read the full article]

Blast from my weight loss past: My roommate took me to her step aerobics class to try it out.  It was hard work!  I didn’t know what half the moves were!   Did I mention it was hard?  And who really wants to do this for a workout?? Okay, who wants to workout at all, but…   [Read the full article]


Blast from my weight loss past: I took aerobics classes for three months.  I lost 5 pounds.  In three months.  So after talking to Alison (see Weight Loss Wednesday part 4)  I decided I was going to go join Weight Watchers.  Back then they had a student rate and my mom even offered to pay…   [Read the full article]

Well.  If…   [Read the full article]

Blast from my weight loss past: “I ran today, so I’m going to eat that cookie. Okay, maybe I’ll eat two.” I was a gymnast in Jr. High and High School and I hated conditioning. Gymnastics was fun but conditioning was hard! So, when I got to college I had really warped ideas about exercise….   [Read the full article]

Blast from my Weight Loss past: “I don’t know where you are putting it but you can’t carry around that kind of weight.” My real last straw with my weight was my back.  I used to pull muscles in high school during gymnastics season.  But this time I’d pulled a muscle from bending over to…   [Read the full article]


Weight Loss Wednesday

Blast from my weight loss past: “I can’t believe that is me.” Looking at the picture of me and my roommates was a small wake up call. I knew I kept buying pants, but I didn’t realize I was getting chunky. That was the spring of 2002, I was a sophomore in college. It would…   [Read the full article]
