I weighed in this morning at 262.
That's way higher than I want to be. I am trying to get back on... Read more
The last two days haven't been that great, but I'm determined to get back on track. I started this morning with a five mile run (outdoors), and now I need to keep my eating under control.... Read more
It has turned cold here, so I went to Snap Fitness again this morning. I did a quick 3 miles on the dreadmill. I'm still feeling pretty good from that workout.
I'm starting to notice just a little looseness in some of my clothes. I still... Read more
When I left the house this morning, shortly before 7:00, it was snowing lightly, and just starting to stick to the lawns. When I got home, shortly before 10:00, there was a good inch on the ground. Fortunately, I spent that time in the warm co... Read more
Today there was a "Polar 5K" sponsored by the Society of Pre-Health Students. I'm afraid it wasn't too polar. It was sunny and high 30's. A nice day for a run.
They had a contest where you were supposed to predict your winning time. The... Read more
I overindulged yesterday. Too much chocolate. Not a full blown binge, but more than I should have. So I woke up with a headache, and to compound the felony, I didn't go running.
I need to get back to the place where running is automatic.... Read more
Boy, was it hard to drag myself out of bed this morning. But I had to do it, because I already took yesterday off. I only rand 2.5 miles, since I have an 8:00 meeting. I know that I will feel better today for having done it.... Read more
Today is not off to a great start. I didn't manage to drag myself out of bed, so I didn't get in a run. Now I feel lazy and sluggish. I'm really craving hard this morning, but I had a sensible breakfast, and if I can make it to noon, I'll pro... Read more
Yesterday was a real good day. I slept in, then went over to Snap Fitness at noon, and did over 11 miles on the dreadmill, while watching the Packers game. It's a good way to distract myself. Since I didn't eat much in the morning, I also stu... Read more
It's December, so I have started my Snap Fitness(tm) membership for the winter. It was actually warm enough this morning that I could have run outside. But I figured what the hell. So I did 30 minutes on the treaded dreadmill. I'm sure I'll ... Read more
I slept in this morning AND still ran, a rare combination. I figured after 13 hours at the office yesterday, I could come in a little late. "A little late" being 8:30, when I'm usually here by 7:30 (and yesterday I was in at 7:00).
Now I ... Read more
Two weeks out. This can be a dangerous time. I'm feeling pretty good, but if I let me guard down, I can fall off the wagon.
Today has been a good day, so far. I didn't run, because I had an early meeting. But I had a nice lunch and he... Read more
I am so craving right now, and it is a direct effect of stress.
I had a student in my office this afternoon who is getting an A-, but really, really wants an A. It would be funny, if she weren't so incredibly stressed over it. She was lit... Read more
Boy, was I hungry at lunch time. And before I could eat, I had to run over to the Student Center. Past the coffee shop and all their cookies and cinnamon rolls and all that. Past the vending machines full of CHOCOLATE. Boy, was I tempted. B... Read more
All in all, not a bad weekend. I stayed within my calorie goals on 3 of the four days. Although I went over on Saturday, I didn't go too far over. I ran two of the four days. I'm happy with what I did.
I ran again this morning, almost f... Read more
