My first goal is to be at155 tomorrow. Not sure if it will happen. I couldn't control my curiosity this morning and I hopped on the scale. It shows 157. That is down two pounds since I started running on Sunday, can't complain!! Just not sure if I am going to make this first goal, but I am definitely not giving up already! I am going to make sure I get my run in today and be very careful with my calories. I have been watching my calorie intake, but wonder if I have been throwing in a few too many "little" snacks here and there that might be adding up. With all that said though, I lost two pounds so far this week! AWESOME!! I can't believe how amazing I feel after my runs. Last night I wanted to wimp out on my run because I was SO TIRED. But thankfully my wonderful husband talked me into at least going for a walk. It didn't take me long before I was running. I actually had the best run of the entire week last night! Go figure!! I ran a mile straight without walking. That's a first for me. I was exhausted, but felt great at the same time! Now time to plow through going strong for tomorrow! Wish me luck!! emoticon


Hit a Wall

I actually got on the treadmill tonight. Before the holidays, I was doing about 3.5 miles in about 30 minutes. Not great, but not horrible. Tonight it took me 30 minutes to run 2.3 miles!! Pathetic!! I don't know what my problem was! I would kick it up and start running and just completely hit a wall. I hope tomorrow is better! My eating was not bad today, I really paid attention to my portions and tried to get some more fruits in. On a good note....I drank a ton of water which is a lot better that it was throughout the holidays!! Off to get my daughter showered and to bed, then me shower, do some reading, and hit the hay for a good night's sleep! Good night all!

Starting over....again....

Thursday, December 31, 2009

So I really thought that by the time New Years came around this year that I would finally be to my desired weight of at least 150 hopefully 145....not so. Once again I have fallen off the fitness wagon. So frustrating!! So once again...starting over... I am so sick of saying this over and over!! I have allowed a friend to talk me into doing a 1/2 marathon in May, so I have some serious training to do. I am hoping to do a couple of 5Ks before May along with my training so that I can do my best in May. I think if I can get into my training of running and throw some weights and cardio in a couple times a week, I should drop the weight very quickly. So how to stay on course?? One day at a time. I am going to be patient with myself and not beat myself up when things don't go the way I planned.

New Day

Saturday, June 13, 2009

I really woke up today feeling like it was a new day and a new start. I got the 30 Day Shred finally in the mail yesterday. I totally loved it! It was the boost I was needing. After I did it, I found myself being a little more selectful in my foods and drinking more water. I am surprised...I really am not that sore. I can tell I did something different to my body, but definitely not sore. I got up this morning and walked on the treadmill for the first time in a couple of weeks and I am looking forward to doing my shred again when I get home. Hopefully now I can get back on track. I would like to get some healthy days under my belt because we leave for vacation for 10 days on Friday and don't want to lose what I have already worked for. No going backwards for me!



Relay for Life event tonight!!!

Friday, June 05, 2009

Tonight is the Relay for Life event for our area. Tonight, we remember those that we have lost to the battle of cancer. Tonight we also celebrate those that have won the battle with cancer....we call them SURVIVORS. As captain of our team....Talkin Till Dawn (catchy, heh?) I am so proud that I get to walk with my mother. She was diagnosed with Breast cancer in October 2004 and is a Survivor. I can only imagine the emotions I will have tonight as I walk hand in hand with my mother and my daughter and think about how lucky I am to have both of them in my life. I have thought a lot about this even this week along with my struggles with weight. I know that they are not even remotely close to being the same thing.....but one thing that is true is that we can all take control of our bodies and do what is best for ourselves. Today I got on the scale and lost 3 more pounds, which brings my total weight loss to 4 pounds since I have "rejoined" SP in the past two weeks. I feel like such a warrior! I am taking control of my health and my body and in return am becoming healthy. I pray that I never have to endure the fight with cancer, but if I do, I want to be in control of my body so that I can give the beast of cancer my best fight. I feel so empowered this week with my weight loss, the way I feel, and taking on the challenge of being captain of our Relay team. I encourage everyone to look into their local Relay For Life events and become involved. Everyone's lives are touched in someway with cancer and we need to find a way to come up with a cure. Life is so precious and we shouldn't spend any time regretting, only enjoying all of the gifts that God gave us.
