Slip and Slide

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I feel like I am slipping far from my weight loss goal. I weighed myself today and notice that I gained 6 ozs instead of losing.... I wish that it was easier for me to lose weight. I'm feeling down.

    Hang in there. You weight is going to fluctuate. Use other ways of determining your success. Use measurements as a tracker. How do your clothes fit lately? Think of all this as a journey toward a healthy living life style not a diet. We want to be strong and healthy. We want to live longer and feel better. It'll happen if you don't give up. I Promise. emoticon

Did You Participate in the Komen Walk For the Cure Today?

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I got up at 5:15 a.m. today and headed to my workplace to take a bus to the Susan G. Komen walk in West Orange, NJ. It was raining on and off since about 3 a.m. but I was committed to the walk. By 6:36 a.m. we were on our way to the South Mountain Reservation, the site of the walk. When we got to the site hundreds of people were on the grounds: registering for the walk, finding their group, and giving and receiving free gifts. We found our table with ease. At about 8:00 a.m. we had already taken our group photos and gave a few tours of our mammography van.

The runners were the first to start the race. After the runners left and the main entertainment acts were over, we (the walkers) headed to the starting line. Along the way we took more pictures and looked at the tee-shirt design competition. I was amazed that so many people turned up for the walk considering the rain. I was proud to be one of the thousands who showed up for the event.

My SP training (5K walk/jog) prepared me well for the walk. I really enjoyed the walk. I was so tempted to jog part of the course. Perhaps next year I'll try to jog/run the course. I know that I can make it if I try.


How Does It Feel to Jog 5K?

Friday, May 13, 2011

Well, depending on your location (inside or outdoors) , jogging 5K could be interesting. I jogged 5K on the treadmill today and it was dull. I tried to engage myself by looking at my form in the mirror. It worked as I set out to jog 2K. However, I kept going after 2K with a promise to stop at 2.5K and that quickly changed to 3K. I realized at the 3K mark that I was more bored than tired. So, I challenged myself to jog for 4K , or jog until I'm tired. Soon after I jogged 4K I was about to give up when I started competing with another person who was running on a treadmill about 5 feet from me. Soon after that I was near the 4.5K mark and it was too late to stop. So I completed my 5K jog, and boy oh boy, it feels so good. What an accomplishment! I am so happy that I did not quit.

I still have to walk alot of my 5 K. At my gym they have little TVs that help the time go faster and if I do intervals; I get so caught up in that, that I don't even look at the TV much.

I do agree it helps to have someone running near you for an extra push.

Does Losing Weight Make You Feel Tired?

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I've been feeling so tired and sleepy lately. I am a night owl but that's nothing new. What is new is new is my bout with seasonal allergies. I'm taking three medications and they are not very effective. I wonder if the medications are causing me to feel more tired that normal. Do you feel more tired than normal when you suffer from seasonal allergies?
