Most of my times are around 41 minutes, but I REALLY wanted to get under 40:00. My personal best is 39:52. Maybe next time. <BR> <BR> Skip ahead, pity party over. Self, remember when you could just walk 15 minutes at 2.7 mph? Okay then, I am doing great! Tue, 30 Oct 2012 08:57:27 EST New goals for this slider! I have slid from my 3 or 4 times a week on the treadmill to one or none over the past month. Well, I have set myself new goals I can stick with! Running/walking interval training at least twice a week and a dvd at least once a week. I figure interval training Tuesdays & Thursdays and JM shred on Fridays. Then on other days, 10 minutes of something to keep me motivated! <BR> <BR> My plan, not so harsh, but enough to get me going again without quitting. <BR> Fri, 5 Oct 2012 08:37:04 EST My 1st Non Stop Mile!:) June 7th, I ran at 5.0 mph for 1.25 miles without walking any part of it! What? How'd that happen? I thought I would see how long I could run withou stopping for National Running Day (June 6th). I covered up the time clock on my treadmill and ran. When I could go no longer I ripped the towel from the clock, it said 13:47 minutes and what was this - OVER 1 mile. I pushed myself to get to 1.25 miles. WOOOOOHOOOOOOO! <BR> <BR> Better than my birthday!!! <BR> <BR> Sun, 10 Jun 2012 17:19:07 EST I always thought I was unsuccessful... I have been here since 04/2/09. Doing good, then doing bad. Back and forth, back and forth. I always thought I was unsuccessful and unable to change. How wrong I was. I was just striving for the wrong goals. I first began my weight loss goal because I gained 10 - 15 pounds after I quit smoking. All I wanted was to be thin again. I use to have pics of thin models on my page for "inspiration". <BR> <BR> All has changed. I now use pics of strong, healthy models for inspiration. I qu... Tue, 13 Mar 2012 08:54:03 EST GOAL MET! - My own C25K **NEW** Okay I have met the goal I set out. It is the last weeks goal of the original SP walk/jog C25K program. I never thought I would be here!! How did I get here! It took me way longer than the original 5 weeks but I don't care because I am here!! <em>334</em> I will stay on this schedule of walk 2 jog 3 until I figure out what to do next and let my body get use to it1 I AM SO EXCITED! <BR> <BR> I will not be defeated! I will conquer the 5K. Right now my fastest time is 41 minute... Sun, 11 Mar 2012 10:42:07 EST My Very Own C25K Program I will not be defeated! I will conquer the 5K. Right now my fastest time is 41 minutes, 17 seconds. I will get it under 30 minutes someday, at my own rate. I have decided none of the pre-planned programs were not for me because I always ended up quitting. I have been going on a good slow and steady pace and my body is eating it up! Below is my C25K. <BR> <BR> Do at least 6 to 7 full intervals (30 min plus) plus warm up and cool down 3 to 5 minutes. <BR> Week 1 - walk 4, jog 1 ... Thu, 23 Feb 2012 15:09:12 EST The Good and the Bad... Good news is I ate a candy bar, five cookies and drank four beers for dinner. Bad news is my 18 year old son got his 17 year old girlfriend pregnant. I am beyond angry, hurt, sad, worried, furious and depressed. Damn it. Sun, 19 Feb 2012 09:41:44 EST My Slacks Fit! I just realized how well a certain pair of slacks fit this morning. I put them on, buttoned and zipped them and there was no digging! It felt good. It felt real good. I guess my work is paying off, slowly but surely! <em>134</em> Wed, 8 Feb 2012 09:09:13 EST My 2011 weight tracker report <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Yeah for me! Thu, 22 Dec 2011 12:51:11 EST
