Bite the Bullet

Bite the Bullet

I bit the bullet, swallowed my nerves, found my inner fathlete and signed back up for the Atlanta Track Club today. I took a long walk today with the dog and despite sweating like a whore in church (seriously – wtf is it 70 degrees in November?) remembered who I am. I am a fathlete. … Continue reading

The Good, The Bad, The Funny

The Good, The Bad, The Funny

I’ll break this up into three sections. The good. The bad. The funny.   The good: Halloween and Baby Girl’s room = success!!! I took the rather freaky approach to Halloween and went with how I feel: she’s trying to escape. I definitely freaked a few people out, but hell, it’s Halloween. I had about a … Continue reading

Control

Control

There are stages to pregnancy and currently I’m in the “I just want to roll over comfortably, stop peeing and feel like I have some some control over my body again” stage. I met another woman in our birthing class that has inspired me. She’s run her whole pregnancy and I’m seriously in awe. She’s … Continue reading

Where is my beer?

Where is my beer?

Kevin and I ran the Michelob Ultra 5k on Saturday. I absolutely loved the course. Tons of rolling hills, but for some odd reason I really enjoyed them.

Insane Clomid Posse

See what I did there? Situation 1: It … Continue reading

All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

All Aboard the Fatty Relief Wagon

I received an email from one of my besties telling me to sign up for a half marathon and run it with her and some of our friends. Initially, I laughed. A lot. But, then I got that itch. That, I haven’t trained in a minute and it feels so good when I do kind … Continue reading

5k Epiphany

5k Epiphany

Here it is: I am no longer an athlete…but I will be one again. It’s incredible how quickly you lose it when you don’t train all the damn time. Wow! My morning started out GREAT! I’d lost 3.2lbs and felt back on track – finally. A sense of accomplishment and confidence overwhelmed me. I didn’t … Continue reading

Soothing the Soul

I had a much needed weekend of soul soothing and what I’d like to think of recovery and the road to redemption. After gorging myself on Friday morning with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked I realized I couldn’t continue down that dangerous road. I made a promise to myself as I licked … Continue reading
