Friday the cold day...

Friday, September 21, 2012

I am sitting in a class observing (this is for the month of September; I hopefully start student teaching in Oct.), and it is FREEZING!!!

On a good note, I have been pretty good with exercising and diet this month, and I have dropped four pounds (as of last weekend - two pounds per week!). I am not sure I will lose any this week, because Sunday was my birthday and my mom was visiting, so I fell off a little on the exercise and food fronts. I am still pushing myself to exercise when I don't want to...that's really where I need to focus to lose. I hate to sweat and I hate to get out of breath, so this is quite hard for me. I figure if I stay on track, I should be at my goal weight sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That is enough of an incentive to keep me going -- I really don't want to take this weight loss thing into a third year!

The only thing that really concerns me is how I will take a class and do student teaching starting Oct. 1 and keep exercising and watching my food. I hope I can do it!

    I hate to sweat and be out of breath as well. I think this holds me back from pushing further. :-(

being selfish

Thursday, September 06, 2012

I'm posting this on my main blog, but I'm trying to figure out how not to be so selfish.
Here's the link; it won't be up till I get home and can put in a couple quotes, probably tonight.

When it's up, let me know what you think...

Edited to add -- It's up now; I had to get a book from home.

  


Running :)

Thursday, August 30, 2012

I tried to run earlier this week with a friend, and I don't know if it was the heat, or if we were running too fast, but I had to keep stopping and finally realized I couldn't breathe (asthma). So I ended up walking half the distance :(

But today I ran (early in the morning) and ran most of the way. So I feel better about that. I guess every time I run I just have to try to do the best I can at that moment.

    I hate to say it but my current goal is to run a 5K without stopping to walk. Sigh.

    I've had difficulty this summer too - the heat and humidity have really taken a toll on my running!! I'm hoping for much better things this fall!!

  Little steps at a time, start small and you'll work up to those marathon runs in no time :o) Great job getting out there!

the end

Saturday, August 18, 2012

This week was...fractured, to say the least. Very odd. But a nice week. I pulled an almost-all-nighter Thursday night to finish homework for a class; stayed up till 4 AM, and then slept till after 3 PM. Got nothing done today really except practicing, and teaching a piano lesson. But will spend time with friends tomorrow and go biking.

Will you blog and post the Never Quit Pledge, today/soon? Even if you already have, it bears repeating!
