Baby steps

Wednesday, March 05, 2014      1 comments

Lost another pound as of this morning. I'm cool with slow and steady...it's the best way to do this. It's still cold and miserable in the Midwest, but spring has to come sometime soon. I do really miss walking and jogging outdoors, but for now t... Read more

Goals set in motion

Monday, February 24, 2014      2 comments

So after my first "return" blog post. I managed to work out 3 times that week. I started anew today with the food/calorie counter and food plan via the site, and have stuck to the plan. I am great with getting the workouts in, but to be honest; ... Read more

It's been a year

Wednesday, February 19, 2014      1 comments

I was on track and happy with my weight. And then this winter hit. I live in the Midwest, and we got record snow this year. It's been difficult to travel, so getting to the gym hasn't really happened. I gained a lot of weight. It's normal ... Read more

Good stuff

Over the weekend the self imposed food challenge went really, really well, and on top of that I tracked my time for the 5K. I'm at 38 minutes...so I just have a little bit to trim if I want to make my goal of 35 or under. It's good motivation to... Read more

Kinda frustrated

Thursday, April 04, 2013      6 comments

So I've been really hitting the gym...and watching what I eat, but I've seen very little progress thus far. I don't have a scale...but I really feel as if it's not moving. I am contemplating doing some detox stuff (juicing and baths) ; but I th... Read more

Back at it

So I've taken a hiatus from roller derby but stuck with the running, completing 5 5K events last year. I've started training now for a 10K in May, with plans to complete a 5K at some point before that event. I'm also really hitting the gym hard.... Read more

Post 5K

Monday, August 27, 2012      2 comments

Well....I got busy and didn't keep up with my countdown. I was able to train up until August 15th or so, but then had a wedding out of town and picked up a second job. I still completed my 5K in right around 42 minutes...so that's not so bad. ... Read more

Hit the gym and got 2.5 miles done in 30 minutes. Then worked on my legs and arms. Thinking about dancing tonight for my cardio. Tomorrow is looking like a short run in the morning followed up Derby practice. Life is good.... Read more

Day Four and Five

Thursday, August 09, 2012      0 comments

Derby practice was great...kind of a relaxed and strategy based, but this will help ease me back into it. Day 5: Woke up early and jogged a mile in the rain. It was refreshing. I may go to the gym later if the weather doesn't clear up, ... Read more

Day Two and Three

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      1 comments

Gym time! 3.15 miles in 42 minutes. My goal for the 5K is 35 or under. I didn't really push myself too hard, and my ipod was giving me really mellow songs which never helps. Maybe switching from the shuffle and making a new playlist will ... Read more

It's been a long time

Saturday, January 07, 2012      0 comments

Well...Roller derby really did help me get to a place where I was comfortable in my own skin. I'm still much healthier and toned since my initial goals, but this fall I fell off the healthy wagon. I finally graduated college and got a "real" job... Read more
