Karla’s Success Weight Loss Story

Success Weight Loss

Wellness Wednesday Success Weight Loss Story 100 Miles of Lessons: New Year, New Me. A Success Weight Loss Story Just over four years ago I walked into a 12 step program, sat down and listened as people shared their testimonies. There was no way I would be one of those people; or so I thought. As time went on I found the courage to stand up in front and share something so personal, so intensely painful and humiliating that I would sob all the way back to my chair. “Hello, my name is Karla ...

Marathon Mommy: One Month Later

mommy

What happened after the marathon? It’s been about a month since I ran my marathon, and I just wanted to check in! After the marathon, I had quite a lot of pain in my right knee and left foot. Both subsided on their own, albeit with a little help from icing and anti-inflammatories. I took a two week break from all exercise – which wasn’t hard to accomplish, since for the first week or so, I could barely even walk up and down the stairs in my house. I’ve started running again, but my ...

Ask A Marathon Mommy: Victory

marathon

Marathon Victory! I did it! I met my goal. Last Sunday, I completed the 26.2 with Donna, also known as the National Breast Cancer Marathon. I’m a marathoner! Now, here’s probably where you’re expecting me to describe how gratifying and exhilarating the finish was. About the adrenaline and camaraderie and self-satisfaction that got me through those last few miles. And don’t get me wrong, I’m plenty proud of my accomplishment. But there’s a lot more to the story. My marathon experience was, ...

Ask A Marathon Mommy: Eating on the Run

Check out this tips for marathon! Eating on the Run It’s been 8 days since my 26 mile training run, and I feel like I am just about fully recovered. The first 48 hours after the run were difficult. I was stiff, achy, dehydrated, and exhausted. I attempted my first run on Wednesday, and it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I ran two miles at a very easy, slow pace, and I still had a good bit of pain in my right knee. So I decided to give my body a bit more time to rest and recover. I am afraid ...

Ask A Marathon Mommy: You Are What You Eat

marathon

Hi, friends! I'm sorry for my absence from this column. Truth be told, I've been lacking a bit of motivation. My energy level has been poor, and for the past few weeks, I've been crashing by mid-afternoon. During my run last week, I mentioned this to one of my running pals, Myra, who happens to be a nurse. She asked some questions about my diet, and I sheepishly admitted to my very poor eating habits, including: coffee with loads of cream and sugar for breakfast; routinely skipping meals; and a ...
