Trying to get accountable again!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

OK! SO! Here's the rundown...

Didn't track yesterday so I don't have that for you...

Ran 12 miles today - 8 on my own and 4 with Roscoe, for the 12athon challenge (12 miles the 12th of every month for 2012).

I got going so early I didn't weigh myself, but I did after... but that was also after a really long run so??? I did drink water after the run and before weighing. So I have no clue how accurate the weighin was... but it was 190.

I did some pushups and my abs workout today - thinking I'll do lower body tomorrow cause my legs are DEAD after racing Sunday and doing 12 miles today.

I've been tracking my food all day today, so I will be able to check in more on that tomorrow, as well.

I got a laptop! My DH's work was raffling refurbished laptops for donations of $100 to charity and we got one. It's kind of crappy, but it works. I can surf the internet from any room in the house now! :D hahha. the battery life is awful, but I don't need to be super mobile with it, so it's totally fine. I feel so fancy now. ;) haha. But the best thing is I can track food downstairs as I go without schlepping up and down the stairs... isn't that lazy? I can also do mindless computer things instead of munching when downstairs and bored, so that's kind of good, too... it's dumb, but I think it will help. Of course right now I'm writing from upstairs, but still.

190 is awesome your ticker is showing 185 so, it looks like you are rocking your journey and your little guy is about to fall off the tracker!

    Roscoe's getting in shape I see-LOL! Next thing, he'll be training for his first marathon.
I love my laptop- well it's our laptop and it's sometimes being fought over, but so much better than running upstairs for me too :-)

Great job on your 12-12-12 challenge!

    No, it's not dumb at all. It has to be easy for you to do it!

And I love the 12-12-12 challenge! Great idea!

    First, congrats on your computer. I love shopping for deals! What kind of computer is it? And, it could just mean that the battery is worn out, now (why it sucks on battery life); and you just need to get a new battery. Also, when you are at home, or anywhere a plug is available to you, plug in, and use your computer. Do not use up the battery life, of your battery. You want to save your battery (charged full, of course) for when you go somewhere that there is no plug access. Oh, most important, remove your computer battery, before you start using it, if you are plugging up. Otherwise, you are killing the battery life of the computer. They make them this way; so they can suck you dry, making you replace your computer battery, etc. Just from reading your paragraph blog about your new computer; I can tell how excited that it made you.

Also, what mile race did you run on Sunday. After running Sunday, you deserve a day of rest; so, please, you do not have to apologize about not tracking, yesterday. Even, running 12 miles, today, sounds great to me.

I found your blog inspiring; although, I am still sitting in this chair; responding to your blog. HaHa! However, it was inspiring! lol I guess I just need a little bit more motivation, to get to moving, today. Maybe, after I take a nap. lol Anyway, thank you for sharing!
