Some days

Monday, October 27, 2008

I wonder if I'm destined to be physically active. It's the hardest thing for me...I was good for 9 months and this past month has been awful. This morning I head to the gym at 5 (which is in my office building) get out of the car and realize I don't have my gym bag - so that's 20 minutes home...no time for a workout this morning. Ughhh, it's like the gods were telling me something.

I need to get out of the exercise funk!

No wonder I haven't lost a pound in a month!

3500 Calories

Thursday, October 09, 2008

Equals a pound of fat. I keep that in mind as I gained weight last weekend and it's still not off!!!!

I haven't been too frustrated in this journey...this week I am getting there. I'm tell myself, it is what it is, that I can't control my metabolism...but it's still hard.

Let me go drink so water since I know I didn't eat an extra 7-9000 calories last weekend.

High School Reunion

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

I went to my 20th high school reunion this weekend, what a good time. Saw so many people who I haven't seen in awhile and a few I see somewhat frequently. It was nice to get compliments all night. Which was nicer was being able to say thank you and mean it. Accepting compliments used to be hard to do without minimizing them some way. Now, I can do it.

Also, was wearing size 12 jeans... I think I was always in 14 in high school. Now, I'm sure sizes changed a lot in 20 years but it was still nice. I tried on some 10s this weekend and they zipped. Too much muffin top ...but I'm on my way!

Size 12s

Monday, September 08, 2008

I went shopping over the weekend and was happy to come home with size 12 pants and some Large tops. When I started out I was wearing 18W and 1X tops...so this is a great joy. It was so nice that I could pick up a pair of 12 (I bought them from 4 pairs from 3 different stores) and they fit...no bringing in 12s and 14s and see which one was better. Maybe I should have tried 10s ;)

It was a good shopping weekend. My weightloss has slowed down but now I'm looking at it as a (kinda) good thing. I can get a little more wear out of these clothes before I have to invest in some more. I think I'm headed to Good Will for some more casual clothes for nights/weekends.

    YAY! Isn't it much better to shop for clothes when you've lost that weight? Congrats on your weight loss!

First 5K - Steelers/Gatorade

Monday, September 01, 2008

Well, I finished my first 5K. I have to wait for my "official" time but my Niki iPod said I did a 12 minute mile. I'm happy with that. I probably walked about 500 meters of it so I didn't run all of it. I was happy with myself, though. After I thought "I could have run the whole thing". Dang!

The best part was the end running into Heinz Field on to the track. It was a good ending to a race!

We're thinking of doing Pittsburgh's The Great Race at the end of the month.

Maybe I'll start collecting race t-shirts!

    Congratulations on completing your first 5K!!! I just started a couch to 5K program myself and my first "race" is at the end of October. I've made it a personal goal to run the whole race - but we'll see if I get there!

I have to say Sparkpeople really has gotten me doing things I *never* would have thought I'd do. Truth told the longest I've ever run is 1 mile - and that was 18 years ago in HS! Small steps right!
