Chasing my fit: Ending 2013

I was able to end 2013 how I started it…running!  What a journey this year has been!  In the mind frame of half marathon training, I discovered I was pregnant with my little Hannah.  Pushing through the morning sickness to keep on.  Determined to still complete my goals (with doctor approval of course).  We ran […]

Chasing My Fit: like WHOA

Whoa…so I was trying to find a Christmas present I misplaced in the closet and stumbled upon my old jeans.  They were the jeans that I bought after Isabel was born in January 2012 because my other pants were too tight.  Old Navy stretch size 16 and I was busting out of them so it’s […]

Jump Start 2014 Fitness One Week Challenge

I have been sitting here with an overwhelming amount of fitness pins that started being hoarded over a year and a half ago.  Well, it was time to finally make my way through them and in the process, I found “Lazy Girl Fitness” by the blogger, VioletSage at http://violetsage.wordpress.com/tag/lazy-girl-fitness/.  Then BOOM…I had an idea!  With the […]

Chasing My Fit: ROAR!

I’ve been paying a little less attention to my weight fluctuation as of late. I started marathon training and I’ve been noticing increases for no “bad” reason. Honestly, I think my body is back into a big muscle building mode. Seriously though…I’m not too concerned with it! My body is making progress and I’m confident […]

Chasing my fit: Dropping the pregnancy weight

It’s time to drop the pregnancy weight changes in the blogs.  Why you ask?  I have gotten below the pre-pregnancy weight…now onto big and better!  I’ve, also, added back some important numbers.  It’s all about accountability.  I need this for me and in the process I hope that I am making someone else’s journey a […]

Chasing my fit: “Mommy & Daddy” runners

Had some family running fun this weekend!  We went out to the Semper Fit Grand Prix’s Hampstead Kiwanis Turkey Trot 8K.  Aiden and Lilli were dressed to run in case they wanted to hop out of the strollers.  Well guess what?  They did alright!  Aiden, my 5 year old boy, ran about 2.5 miles of […]

Chasing my Fit: NSV’s are the best!

Major NSV (non-scale victory) this week…back into my high school jeans.  Ok ok ok…it’s the “fat” pair but hey!  It’s a start!  The last time I wore them was in high school and then again briefly in 2002 (the major clubbing year).  They were a pretty big deal to me though.  I never believed that […]

My Journey to a Half Marathon!

What a journey! I never imagined me being a runner. At first, I even hesitated calling myself a runner or even what I was doing was running. I began it all with a push of admiration.  Here I was trying to find my way to a fit life and there was two friends, Emily and […]

You, me and a cup of Vi

I made it! I finished my 90 Day Challenge! In the end, I can say… 1. I’m down 22.44 pounds, gained 2.94 lean mass, and down 23.30 inches. 2. I have gone from a 41% body fat to a 33%. I honestly did not even know that I had been that bad! 3. My clothing […]
