Cut my running time!

Monday, September 24, 2012

Yep, yesterday I ran 3 miles in just under 35 minutes! emoticon On my last 5K I ran it in 36.02, so that's a big improvement! Of course, it WAS on a treadmill emoticon but for some reason I tend to run a little faster outdoors (probably caused by gravity going downhill!). My weight's also down a smidge emoticon and I'm not sure if it's diet or losing muscle tone. I've really slacked off the exercising, and the Zombie Run is only 2 weeks away! (AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!) So I managed to squeeze in some pushups and ab work, and it feels pretty good - so far emoticon

Last night I did something DIFFERENT!

Friday, September 07, 2012

Last night I went to this New Horizons program out of OU, where people of "all ages" (mostly MY age) either learn to play an instrument or take up one they used to play. I have played with guitar for years (they didn't have Rock Band when I was a kid), and I thought maybe this would be a way to get better. Well, last night was a full orchestra, and they don't really use a guitar player, so I decided to try Upright Bass! They got me a loaner, you should see the thing - it's HUGE! So last night I just learned a little about the instrument, like how to hold it and the scale, then we went over a song. I think I'm going to like this! emoticon

Next Monday I'll be jamming with the Jazz Ensemble, and they DO take guitar players! Stay tuned.... emoticon

Lazy last night

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Well MY road to you-know-where will definitely be paved with my good intentions. I had EVERY intention of getting on the elliptical last night, and then maybe doing some much-needed Pilates. Instead my hubby and I watched "Act of Valor," a movie about Navy Seals and apparently starring actual Navy Seals. I believe that, too - the acting was awful! But it was an intense movie, good storyline. And it definitely got in the way, should have worked out FIRST and THEN watched it! emoticon Tomorrow my hubby & I are going to Tinsletown to watch "Lawless," and I'm SO EXCITED about it!!! emoticon Yep, you can tell what kind of movies I like to watch - lots of action, fighting, and Tom Hardy is in "Lawless," so bonus points there! emoticon

On a more serious note, tonight I'm looking into doing something REALLY challenging! Stay tuned....

    AHHH, temptations. They screw up tons of things! I loved Act of Valor - it is based on a true story I believe. It made me cry like a baby! We watched it while my son was at Marine Corp Boot Camp - not good timing.

I enjoyed reading your blog... thanks for reading mine too.

Honest about my weight

Monday, August 27, 2012

Well, I WAS down to 137 lbs, for awhile anyway. But now it's back up to 140.5 lbs (Stupid Scale! emoticon) It's been here for a few weeks, darnit! I'm over the Strep, and I've got about 6 weeks 'til the Zombie Run, so I need to GET BUSY!!! emoticon Need to clean up the diet, too -- famous last words!

  Trust me, I completely understand! I was down to the lowest I have ever been since having the kids at the beginning of the year and now I have gained everything back that I lost and a few of it's friends. Right now, I'm sitting at more than when I started SP last year. This year has been hell. But there is still time to whip our rear ends into shape! Let's do it!
