Not a happy person

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

I thought I was doing well during the holidays. I wasn't. I weighed myself today and I've gained 8 pounds since the beginning of December. A few things have changed in the last month. Fall semester ended on Dec. 13, I didn't exercise as much in the last 2 weeks and I haven't really been myself lately.

I've had some really good days, but most of the days haven't been that good. I have an appointment with the doctor in a few days and we'll see if I need a medication change.

Classes start again on January 13. It will be my last semester because I graduate in May. My original goal was to weigh 150 pounds at graduation. I won't be making that goal. So my new goal is to lose 30 pounds in the next 5 months and to keep going after that.

It's a new year, so let's everyone have a great one!

Happy New Year!

    I like that you reset your goals and didn't give up.

  Oh my, this brings back memories! I gained eight pounds over the holidays a number of years ago. But we had a crisis. A family member was dying, and I did eat and eat and eat from the stress. We just sat there in the hospital. Stuffing chips and snacks in the pie hole is how I coped. She did die, after a week or so. It was around New Years that she died.

That was then. This is now.

New year now! Let's take care of our health!

I walked my first ever 5K today!

Monday, May 20, 2013

It's been a loooong time since my last blog. A lot has happened. I finished another semester in college. The next fall semester is my last one. I just found out today that I made the Dean's List again. And I joined a gym a couple of months ago.

Today, I walked my first ever 5K and I did it in 79 minutes! I walked it on a treadmill at 2.4 mph. For those of you who don't know, I had a spinal cord injury 6 years ago. I've always been able to walk, just not well. I've been working my way up to the 3.1 miles, but I could never quite get there. Well, today I did! I decided to join one of the virtual races that SP has. I picked a date about 6 weeks away. Today was that date. I was nervous because I haven't been able to walk for more than an hour before my foot would start dragging.

I'm a tired but excited person tonight. Now it's time to work my way up to 4 miles at a time. From here on out, the sky's the limit, I think. I don't do well on the strength training part, but I've got an appointment with a trainer at the gym and we'll go through what I can and can't do as well as what I should and shouldn't do.

Here's to a safe and happy Memorial Day for all my SparkFriends old and new!
