Hard to start over

Thursday, April 24, 2014

Shortly after my last blog entry in August of 2013 I got an upper respiratory infection that lasted two months. This set back along with getting a very sedentary job has put all the weight back on I worked so hard to lose. So I am again starting over. emoticon

It always seems it is much harder to lose weight than to gain it. Why does it come back so fast. The weather is now good so I have no excuses not to get back on track and lose the pounds again. emoticon

    Yes you can do it. emoticon And you will do it. Just take it one step at a time.
I wish I knew the answer to your question on the speed weigh comes back on. I just know it does with out effort and it comes off with concentrated effort.
We both know the effort is worth it. emoticon

I Made it up the mountain!

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

I ran 4 miles today. Two miles where a 7% grade a 1000 foot climb in the 2 miles. Granted I wasn't going fast, but I still count it as running. LOL. Running down was like resting. So I should have any trouble with a flat 4 miler race in October. Still need to lose more weight so it is easier on the knees, but that is bound to come with good food and increasing exercise.

Running 2 miles

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I can't believe I am actually able to run two miles at a nice clip. I did 1 mile in 8 min 15 sec and was quite proud of myself. Never thought I would be able to run again after breaking my back five years ago. I seem to be a bit stuck on my weight loss lately, but it helps to concentrate on other goals with my fitness. Still doing Tae Chi and throwing some weight lifting in now and then to keep up my body strength. I have a goal of running a 4 mile trail race in October and that is starting to seem like a real possibility. I will be helping out at a marathon Sunday who knows by next year maybe even run a half a marathon or a full one. You never know. For now one day at a time. I am feeling healthier everyday.

Lightly jogging for the first time in 5 years

Friday, May 03, 2013

I have jogged 2 miles in the last two days sprinting the last 100 yards. I didn't think I would ever be able to jog again after breaking my back, but the combination of consistent walking and Tae Chi has made me light enough and strong enough to do some. I don't plan on any big running events just want to increase my lung capacity. Beautiful weather is spurring me on. And thanks to all the positive comments.

Spring has sprung as the weight is dropping

Saturday, April 27, 2013

It seems I have broken my plateaus and got moving again. I will meet my first goal of 162 by my birthday in July if I can maintain my current weight loss rate. It seems bumping my calories up to about 1600 has got me moving. My previous calorie rate of 1300 was just to low for my activity level and my body reacted poorly. These all all high nutritional calories for the most part and I am very happy with the results. emoticon

    Good for you, glad you figured out the right mix of calories and activities. Some people think it is cutting calories drastically that works, but sometimes your body will start to conserve and not drop the lbs.

    It is not the storms we weather, that define us; it is the way that we weather the storms! Live In His Grace! For more details on scriptures, story and lesson, read today’s “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH” and share it with those you love. Vic.
