4th of July...

Monday, July 04, 2011

Well, I've been maintaining current weight for quite a while now... I haven't gained, which is of course, a good thing, but I was hoping to have done better. My brother-in-law is getting married in August, and I am their matron of honor (jeez that makes me sound old...). I have my dress already, but I was a little disappointed that I had to buy it a size bigger. I am hanging in between sizes, which is a nuisance, but the dress is slim fitting so I decided- better safe than sorry! At least I won't have to wear 3 layers of Spanx. Just one. ;-)

To save $, I am switching from 1 on 1 personal training to group training. I'll still have the same trainer, but in a group setting, and the cost of the sessions is divided evenly among the class members.


Couch 2 5k

Friday, February 11, 2011

Eee... did the first entry on the 'Couch 2 5k' program... jog for 1 min, walk for 2. Actually, I was supposed to walk for 1 1/2 mins, but I needed the extra 30 seconds. :-)
It was so hard... I wasn't able to do the intervals for the entire time, because at the halfway point I got a terrible shinsplint in my left leg. So, I only got one more jogging interval in after that, and gimped home. Not sure if it's me or the shoes, or both. I will ask my gym trainer next week.

I need this cardio so bad... I've told myself for so many years that I still hated running, but I am truthfully not entirely sure if that's the case. I've been procrastinating really bad about doing this C25K thing, but I need to try. What if I *like* running and I've been avoiding it all these years? My trainer would be so elated... :-)

Not What I was Hoping For

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I got on the scale today, and it registered a 3 lb *gain* from last week. I know, logically, based on my eating and exercise in the past week, it is not possible for me to have gained 3 lbs of fat in a week. My old nemesis, Aunt Flo, will be arriving soon, so I'm sure there's some water weight in there. There might even be some muscle building going on. :-) It was still sure disconcerting to see that higher number on the scale, though. I have to keep remembering the recently featured blog post regarding the scale and how it can be misleading... she was a 160 lb size 6, so I'm just keeping that picture in my mind. :-D

    Hum! Don't have an answer, except I just got past being frustrated by it all! So, there is an end to it somehow, somewhere. I'm always astounded by the fact that things never happen to me when I want them, but when they finally roll around to the proper time, whether I like it or not. Maybe I'm not the only one that happens to. I wish you better luck in that department.

Have a grand one and I wish you grand success in reaching all your dreams and goals, health, wealth, and happiness.

Mmm... fats...

Thursday, January 20, 2011

My trainer looked at my reports and has informed me that I need to reduce my intake of dairy fats and eat more meat. I like dairy fats. :-) And I'm lazy, so my red meat intake usually consists of ground beef. So I guess I better work on that, lol.


A Bummer, But...

Monday, January 17, 2011

After much thought, I decided to update my weight... I haven't done it because it's kind of embarrassing, but I can't track my loss otherwise. *sigh* I suppose it's good that I didn't regain *all* the weight I lost, but still. :-/
