Lazy days of Summer

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Well, my June fitness goal is to break 1500 fitness minutes. I've gone up from 500 to 1000 minutes for the past 2 months. May was pretty good, I lost about 5-6 lbs, but it seems a little harder now. emoticon It's because it's summer, when it gets hot and everything slows down. Work is REAL slow right now - not that I mind! emoticon We're on the summer schedule, which this year is 9 hrs Mon-Thurs with a 30 min. lunch, and 4 hrs on Friday. That means I don't really get to walk on my lunch break, so I REALLY need to make sure I get a workout in the evenings. I'd LUV to lose another 5-6 lbs in June! I really need to watch the diet as well, I tend to eat ALOT of ice cream in the summer, plus those yummy iced lattes from Starbucks. They have this new cookie crumble frappuchino, and I don't even want to know how may calories are in that thing! I will try to hold it down to once a week! This morning I told the 16-year-old SHE was making dinner - Salsa Chicken! All she has to do is throw everything into the slow cooker and turn it on. If I can eat early enough, I might be able to squeeze in a short run. Last night I did 30 minutes of Pilates - but apparently that doesn't burn as many calories as Coach Nicole's 30 minute Bootcamp DVD - now THAT makes me sweat! emoticon


Forgot to NOT weigh myself today

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Yeah I'd mentioned on another post that the scale sometimes (okay, frequently) sets my mood, and it was suggested that I stop weighing everyday. But yeah, this morning I forgot to not weigh myself - at least the numbers are down! emoticon


Not that hungry, hmmm....

Friday, May 11, 2012

Yes I have experienced tummy trouble earlier this week emoticon, it's better but I have this itchy rash all over emoticon and it may be poison ivy or the Shingles returning. What a bummer! I'm going to the Dr. tomorrow hoping they can identify this and give me an ointment or something. Meanwhile, I'm taking Benadryl for the itch, and I'm a little loopy right now. emoticon

In the meantime, I DO seem to have lost my appetite, and as a result have lost a few lbs. emoticon Hopefully won't be temporary like the LAST time I got sick!


Tummy troubles

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

So yesterday I made it to work, but then just conked out - plus my tummy was giving me lots of trouble emoticon I ended up leaving at 9:30am, went home and took some Dramamine and went to sleep emoticon for a few hours. I didn't eat much, had some soup for lunch and crackers with apple juice for dinner. Needless to say, my weight's down a bit, and I still have little appetite. My tummy is still iffy today, but I can't afford to miss any more work. Hopefully when I get home I'll be able to do a little bit of Pilates, but probably no running - my left knee's bothering me a bit anyway, so probably will just rest up.


2012 Marathon - safety runner with kids!

Monday, April 23, 2012

I had thought about doing the 5K run, but after being so sick in February/March I really didn't train for it. However I DID volunteer to run along with the kids on their 1-mile "fun run," and I just got my official safety-runner T-shirt (wish I had a picture!)! So I'll be running tonight for sure! emoticon emoticon (Can't be shown up by a bunch of kids now, can I??? emoticon)

    And I ran, I ran so far away...not really, I was on the treadmill Monday, but definitely put in 1 1/2 miles running. Unfortunately, today my ankle is a little sore, sure hope I can run tonight! Damn those heels, should have worn sneakers! emoticon
