I can run! C25K Week 5

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

This week I started C25K week 5 and I completed it today! YEAH! I felt great after my run. I did 21minutes of running! I completed a total of 2.1miles so about 1.5miles of running the rest was warm up and cool down. The speed isn't fast, but I'm running - I don't know if I've ever run that long before - maybe in elementary school.

And best of all - I'm enjoying my running!

Onto Week 6 on Saturday....


Getting back on track

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

The past few weeks have been difficult staying on track - and the next week or so will still be difficult... but I WILL DO it! I have now lost 60lbs!!! emoticon

I am feeling great after two days of staying on track with my calories and water. My legs are sore today after my run last night, but I did some strength training this morning.

I have another difficult weekend ahead as I head to Alberta to help my Dad, my Uncle, and my Aunt pack up my Grandmother's house and visit with my Grandmother. I will really have to watch my portions as I may not be in control of the cooking. It may also be hard to get my protein in as I don't eat meat. BUT I can do it! I will drink my water and keep on track with that. And I will get in some exercise. I think one of the days I may head over to the local pool and have a swim, and will probably have a swim on each of my travel days if I choose the correct hotel....

I will loose this weight and get healthy. My weight loss is slowing down, but I can get back on track. I only lost 4lbs in July - but I still lost so that is an achievement! And I'll take anything...


Dealing with my current setback

Monday, August 03, 2009

I am currently off track! I have house guests, I am not eating properly. I am trying, but it is difficult with all sorts of food I normally wouldn't have around... Too many temptations!

How will I get back on track?

- start tracking foods again
- keep exercising
- stay away from the kitchen!
- keep drinking my water
- eat lots of fruit and vegetables

I haven't gained any weight but am feeling the difference. I wish I could run away from some of the food that is in my house.

I have been exercising which makes me feel great but hungry and with some not so perfect food around its easy to snack on those choices. I need to keep eating healthy and stop the unhealthy choices.

I can do it! I am motivated to do it! I feel much better when I'm on track.

So TODAY I will get back on track - not tomorrow but TODAY!

Going away without the kids

Saturday, August 01, 2009

How did it get to be August all ready? Summer is half over. The kids have been out of school for 5 weeks and we have 5 more weeks of vacation!

On Friday I will be travelling to Saskatchewan and Alberta to visit relatives and help pack up my grandmother's house. My grandmother lives near my aunt but has been moved into the extended care facility and we need to put her house on the market. My dad, his wife and uncle from Ontario are also going out to packup the house.

I haven't been away from the kids for more than a night or two. An unless they've been at my mom's I've always had one kid with me. For the first two nights they will be staying at home with Daddy then they will be going to Gramma's (my mom's) house for the next 3 nights before I get home. I'm nervous, I'm excited. BUT I'm not organized. Still have lots to do before Friday....

I will also get to stop in and see my brother who is doing his RCMP training in Regina. I'm so proud of my brother - he is currently 1/3 of the way through his training!


Food Tracking....

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

I believe food tracking is important... BUT I'm not good about doing it.

I try and get side tracked after a few days.... I get busy with life and forget... my computer fails and I don't have a way to track online.

So what do I do? If my weight loss is headed off track, I use it. If I'm eating something really different, I use it.

Should I use it more? Probably. Will I? Probably Not - at least not long term.
