I've kept my streak of 30+ min. exercise up for over 3 weeks! I blogged last Friday that I would have a challenge exercising/pp+ tracking over the weekend and while I was on vacation. I didn't do too bad, I lost 2.2 lbs.!
Last Friday DD... Read more
Weekend & Holiday Challenge
2 days in a row with tracking! I finished yesterday at my target points (Weight Watchers). As usual, breakfast & lunch were no problem since I eat a healthy breakfast and pack my lunch for work. I'm in a small office, so there's no vending ma... Read more
Yesterday was a good day! It didn't start that way. I got a real shock when the scale showed a 2 lb. gain (overnight). Yes, I sometimes weigh every day and I know how the scale can fluctuate. Nevertheless, I was pretty devastated by the gai... Read more
Sometimes the Scale Doesn't Lie
I've been struggling lately with my weight gain. I've looked back at my previous blogs and just about every blog mentions my concerns about the weight gain as a postscript. Yes, I'm concerned, disappointed, frustrated and yes, I know what to d... Read more
Weekend Recap & Ramblings
Happy to report that I've kept up with my daily 30+ min. of exercise - tomorrow will be 2 weeks!
Friday morning I did the lower body workout. I'm actually pretty proud I'm getting up about 40 mins. early to do this - I could be sleeping ... Read more
Get it in Gear
As if I needed more incentive to loose those stubborn 6+ pounds over goal, yesterday while I'm sitting at my desk at work, I noticed my pants were a little snug. Not "lay on the bed to button" snug, but they felt a little uncomfortable. I told... Read more
My summer goal (set last Tuesday) is to exercise 30+ mins. a day. I don't have any specific plan, just do some form of exercise for 30+ mins. everyday. So far, so good. Monday I played 30 mins. of badminton & 20 mins. of throwing the Frisbee... Read more
Working the Plan
My new summer plan of 30+ mins. of exercise is working pretty well. Almost a whole week! Friday DH & I dropped off DD#1 at work and went to the park to run (or in my case, get in my 30+ mins. of exercise, even though I had already done a 20 mi... Read more
As Bad as I Thought . . .
I decided to reset my summer goals and "put them down on paper" yesterday. My first goal is to exercise at least 30 mins. a day. I started on Tuesday. I did a strength/weight DVD Tuesday (lower body), Thursday (upper) & this morning (upper).... Read more
New Summer Time Goals
I got kind of sick of myself complaining about my running and my lack of motivation. So before I completely sabotage all of my goals, I decided to update for the summer. It's starting to heat up here in North Georgia. We had a really hot, ear... Read more
I feel like a fraud!
So I'm talking to my oldest sister on the phone yesterday and she's updating me on what's been going on. She was on vacation and returned Thursday night (the back story - she got motivated by my success and joined Weight Watchers and then start... Read more
Oh crap, it's June!
I'm back at work after being on vacation last week and had to tear off the May page of the calendar. I can't believe it's June! May was a blur of "kid activities" and this past week was no different. My running was non-existent this past week... Read more
Didn't Start Over!
Well I didn't start over my running training like I blogged before. That would have been a good thing. Instead, I've pretty much stopped running the past week and I only got in 2 runs the week before. I did press the little button to start ov... Read more
My blog on Monday had me questioning whether to start over with my 5K "training". I signed up for an online intermediate training program back in March to improve my 5K time to under 36 min. I soon found out after a couple of weeks that I was ... Read more
Do I Start over Again?!
If anyone reads my blogs, they're probably thinking "this chick is wishy washy" and "boy does she have the excuses", but I'm not sure where to go right now with my running. I blogged before about burn-out and how hard the runs have become. But... Read more
