A-ha moment

While reading blogs this afternoon I stumbled on Michelle Goes Running and started checking out her blog.  What caught my eye first was the Seattle Troll she had listed in her Photo Canvas Giveaway. If you have never been to Seattle, you may or may not know what the Troll is. Basically its this huge carving that resides under a bridge in Seattle.  Its a great tourist stop, or hang out for bored college or high school kids - not that I ever visited it when I was in college....uhmmm ok where was I.


As I was exploring her blog I stumbled on this post and loved it.  She made so many good points about knowing your own body and your limits! The photo she include really hit the nail on the head for me.  It was one of those light bulb moments. You know it, but when you read it - You can't out exercise a bad diet!!! - you go yes of course! I can workout all I want but if I eat crappy I will not lose weight.  You have known this all along, but seeing it written so simply it's your  Aha moment!


  1. Hey - good luck tomorrow!! Looks like you will get decent weather, I hope. I am looking forward to hearing how it goes for you, what an achievement!

    And I was so impressed with you when I read your blog that we are both fighting toward that 100-something milestone. I make excuses for myself of things that I can't do because I'm too big. You put a crimp in my excuse-making, haha. :)

    Have fun tomorrow! Have a great run!

  2. How did your 10K go? Hope you had a good one and a great time!

  3. That sign was probably meant for me too. I am so bad. And great job on your 10K!
