Bye Bye Week 5!!

Oh yeah baby. The dreaded week 5, day 3 run is OVER!! It wasn't pretty. It wasn't much fun and I did walk a few times (but only for a few seconds each time and I added time at the end). But dang son, it's over!! I did it last night. I ran on my new fav trail. And I nailed the uphill :)

On a less positive note, I have plantar fasciitis. Bummer. I'm not and I mean NOT going to let it slow me down!! I am completing this Couch to 5K program. And then, I'm still going to run. I love it!

Thanks for all of the support and inspiration you wonderful bloggy peeps!!




  1. Nice job! Doesn't it feel so good when you are done!! Makes it worth it to get out there :) Love the smile too!

  2. Woohooooo!!! Awesome!!! Great job!!
    FWIW I had to walk for 1 min during my w5d3, but rocked the next runs and haven't had to walk since!

  3. You are AMAZING woman! Run like the wind :)-

  4. Way to go! It doesn't matter that you walked a little either, you finished, good job!!!

  5. Awesome run! I still remember when I could barely run 5 minutes straight (just last year!) You can do it! Make sure you are icing and stretching your feet. You'll be back to 100% soon!

  6. ok I saw your comment that you couldn't wear a running skrit and you are so wrong! I am a sweaty messy runner and I wear them!!

    sorry to hear about the foot, hope it gets to feeling better soon

  7. Great job! Hope your foot feels better soon!

  8. Great work! Way to nail the hill portion of the run! Hills are so hard for me! They will make us stronger and faster...right?

  9. Great job on finishing up week 5! Thanks for entering my giveaway!

  10. Congrats on completing 5 weeks - way to go!

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Finding My Way

Mike finished the upstairs of his shop for me. For my space. To use as I wish.  It's been finished and painted for a year.  Last night I finally felt the urge to begin to sort through and organize.  This is the beginning of my new studio space and I couldn't be more excited!!  I haven't created much art or jewelry over the last few years and until last night, I didn't realize how much I missed it.  Obviously, I still have a lot of work to do up here, but my work table is up and towards the back you can see my completely awesome blueprint file drawers that I won't be using for blueprints ;)

I've been feeling a little "off" lately and I think I've finally figured why.  I am a creative person at heart and I've been stifling my own creativity to conform and to make time for everything else.  I've decided it's time to fly my own flag and be who I am.  Who cares if one day all I think about is running and the next I am so engrossed in a pro…
