It's Cold Outside!
Oh my goodness! I have never run when it was so cold outside I could see my breath! I was VERY cold my first lap, then got progressively warmer. By my last lap I had shed my jacket and on the cool down I took off my hat and gloves. It was 43 F w... Read more
Week 2 c25k
It was REALLY cold here in OK last week so I didn't run at all until Saturday. I ran mostly 60 second intervals from week 1, but every now and then I got distracted by how nice a day it was or my own thoughts or whatever and had run 90 seconds b... Read more
The race was a huge success and I finally feel like I have my life back. We made a lot of money, met a lot of dog owners and grew several rescues and businesses in the process. It totally unraveled my fitness routines though. By October I was wo... Read more
Update on everything
So I survived the HCG Diet and stabilization period, I lost 30 pounds and a ton of inches. I can run a half mile without stopping, walk a little and do it again. I need to add strength training, but I don't know why I can't make myself do it. I ... Read more
Getting back in the groove
So, I updated my spark page today. And I'm blogging. I haven't done either of those things in a while. As I mentioned on my spark page, I'm starting at the beginning, building up my strength and endurance. I'm doing the couch to 5K program, I'm ... Read more
Day 13 and 14 Insanity

Day 9 Insanity
Well, today I think I pushed too hard early, is that possible? I tried to finish every second of some of the earlier moves and by the time we got to mountain climbers I was spent. I had to pause the video twice after that, but I kept going as be... Read more
Day 8 Insanity
I have no arm strength. I was cooking through the video today, got to the v push up. I did all three sets, but forgot about the tricep work after it. I cannot make it through that tricep set. I do okay with the tricep ball thing, but lifting my ... Read more
Day 6 and 7
Yesterday's workout was a struggle to get through with the whole family home. I would rather have just hung out with them doing nothing than close myself off in a room for 45 minutes, but I did it and survived it. I am very proud of myself for g... Read more
WOW. That's all I got. It was hard, I did pause it twice to catch my breath, I didn't do every second of every move, but I kept going! I think I need to call my chiropractor and see if my knee is out of alignment or something. The Heisman move i... Read more

Hooray for cardio recovery! I did every bit of this video and didn't have to pause it once! Woot! I'm sure that won't be the case tomorrow, but still.
Today was pretty good. I got the house clean, even mopped the kitchen, did my video, sur... Read more
