In other news...

We are continuing to do the "Couch to 5k" program with this being the start of week 4. We actually finished week 3 fairly strong and we are both happy with the results. I can tell a tremendous difference in my ability to run, my legs, butt and stomach's physical appearances. And it just feel ubber healthy to be out and running. Our 9th week we are potentially faced with a 5k, and we are considering running it. We've been running at the local high school track/football field and it's been great, it keeps us contained to an area and I don't have to worry about losing my dh on the run (as his stride is twice mine). With that said, I'm not sure how running a 5k together would go but we are going to try it!

Have you started this or done this before? If so, what was your outcome? Did you continue to run or did you just cut it off cold turkey after reaching your goal?

Great for you guys! I'm so impressed with you and your dedication! We didn't make it very far, so I'm no help with the Couch to 5K.

My first race was a 5k in North Carolina in 2002, in 2 months I'm doing a marathon and in the next 3 years I am doing an Ironman. Does that help? Lol

I'm on week 3 of the c25k program and I'm loving it. After I finish, I plan on training for a half marathon. It's always been a goal of mine to run at Disney World and they have a Disney Princess Half Marathon in early March, my plan is to run that next year.

That's great!! I did the C5K program last summer and loved it. And I'm still running. I'd love to run a half marathon - I'm hoping to do one in the fall, before DH and I start TTC. We'll see how it goes...

You're doing great! I broke my foot (a reminder to stretch, stretch and stretch again!!) before reaching my goal of a half-marathon last year, so I didn't quit by choice. But when I am able to start again, my goal is to think of myself as "a runner" and in that case, I don't want to complete a race and then stop. I would like running to be my main source of exercise.

If you check out my latest blog post you'll see that I've just decided to participate in a 5K with my husband on May 9. The problem is I don't run, ever, so I'm guessing that could make my training program very difficult!

Good luck with yours :-)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
