5 miles

Thursday, June 24, 2010

We've increased our miles to 5 and next time we are going for 6 miles! I have never been this girl. I cant believe that I am running 6 miles on the elliptical. ME! Wow. It blows my mind. When we started we did about 10 minutes and I thought I was going to die. Now we are going about 35-40 minutes and I feel great and like I could go longer! I am just amazed at how much I've accomplished. I am certainly not alone. Boy, it sure makes a difference to have a partner. I have the best one! She challenges me. I hope I challenge her but really we are great for each other because we both go go go! And for me I've never challenged myself this much ever. I wish the scale would move faster but things like this have a big effect on me. My clothes fit better. I'm obviously strengthening my body. It is all so exciting. Like maybe someday I could be the girl that has a fit body because she is athletic! Wow. I can't believe it. Oh and I had another win! I had a very stressful day the day before yesterday. I wanted a candy bar. I am a big stress eater. Then to make matters worse me and my mom got in a fight. that made me want candy even more. I RESISTED! Idid not eat a candy bar! Or anything over my points! YAY! I've probably resisted my stress eating urges maybe 10 times in my entire life.

4.5 miles

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I RAN 4.5 MILES! I can't frickin believe it. It was on the elliptical so I know that is easier than road but I was going 7.5-8.0 MPH and that to me is running! I was DRIPPING with sweat. It was almost as much or as much as when we do Zumba. I feel great. I think I could've gone longer. Me and my work out buddy (she's the best ever and half the reason I'm winning at this) are going to run a half marathon in April for the OKC bombing memorial. I am pumped. I've never ran a marathon. This is a huge milestone for me. I am really excited. I am trying to eat healthy. I added some nutrients I want to watch on my SP page. Sodium is one....HOW IN THE WORLD DO PEOPLE EAT LESS THN THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT?!?! wow. I had no idea it was that out of control for me. I am glad I noticed because I dont want to cause myself to be even more prone to heart disease...(I am a woman and I have a long line of heart disease in my family) My calcium is hard for me too. I guess I am going to have to take supplements for that. I'm just thankful for Sparkpeople. I am going to get healthy! I'm not even thinking about that number on the scale right now...although I'm sure I will be tomorrow. ha.

I've been doing zumba. I've also been going to the gym when there is no zumba. I have a great partner to work out with. I think that is key! We've been working together on it. I have been encouraged to give up soda and eat more fruit and veggies. My goal is to be in the 130's within the next 2 weeks. =) That will be exciting for me! I can't wait. I am just so thankful for my workout partner. She is my rock in all this. When everyone else tempts me to eat candy and go get ice cream (thank you husband) she says NO! hahaha. I think I've finally hit my stride with this.

Ok it's been awhile.

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

So my hubby went to China for 2 weeks and I thought I would be able to be so good but it was way harder than I thought to be good eating. It is like I wanted to just do a bunch of special things with my daughter and I ended up gaining a couple pounds. =( so sad.
So I went to the gym to try this class called Zumba. I LOVED it! I haven't danced since high school so it was way fun for me! I took a few friends and we all signed up for a membership and have been going a lot!!! I am addicted to it!


I lost that pound back.

Saturday, February 20, 2010

That is basically it. I am really having a hard time getting back on track. I am I suppose on the right track because I lost my pound back. So that is a positive. I wish it would warm up because the cold makes me want to cozy up and eat eat eat. I know this but I still fall into the trap!!! oh boy. This week IS going to be better!
