We were away on a week vacation last week. I didn't track a lot of cardio activities but we sure walked a lot. So I am not too worried that I didn't get much exercise in. I did track 2 hours of swimming and 2 short hikes. This week however,... Read more

I did ok during fasting month. If I didn't swim, I cycled around the neighborhood. I didn't swim as much I had planned but there were a couple of circumstances that curbed swimming; art fair in town equal blocked roads for at least half of the w... Read more

I have exercised during 3 out 4 days of fasting. A 30 minutes bike ride and two half a mile swims. They weren't bad. I did these about an hour before break fast time so, I wasn't thirsty for long. My weight has continued to drop stea... Read more

Well, fasting month is here. I am looking forward to fasting. Other than religious reasons, it'll be great to get rid of toxic and whatnot from my body this month. With fasting, I'll probably won't be working out as hard as I had these past... Read more

A change?

I have been swimming 3 times a week with biking or something else in between swimming days. Until recently, my weight has stayed steady at 14 lbs over my weight before I jumped back to exercising this spring. I am finally seeing a dip in t... Read more

I decided to go back to swimming regularly for my exercise. This is after my husband kept pushing me to do it. I can't walk fast nor run due to my bad knees. I should have listened to him long ago. I have been to three full swimming ... Read more

Now that winter has mostly passed, I need to deal with winter weight gain. Lost about 5 pounds of it so far within 1.5 weeks. It almost make me think it was only water weight but I do see more definition in my abdomen. The top two abs muscles ar... Read more

I bought a new skirt yesterday. A size L. I didn't try it at the store. It was on clearance. I just eyeballed it in front of a mirror and thought it would fit me fine. And it did! The waistband is elastic but it doesn't even need to stretch... Read more

I went shopping for a couple of stuff tonight at Target. Since I have time on my hand, I started pulling out jeans to try. I can wear size 16 misses. Not 16 women. I didn't even have to suck in my stomach! I put it on, there is room around... Read more

A few updates

Friday, October 26, 2012      2 comments

Haven't been writing in a few months. My weight has been up and down the scale but it's nothing I can't control. I tend to retain water and gain muscles easily so I don't pay attention to the scale anymore. As long as my clothes fit right, ... Read more

I crossed the finished line for my very first 5k walk this morning. I was slow and came in last, but I did come in at 54 minutes, 1.5 minutes faster than my usual time. I had a much different attitude than I had when I was in high school. ... Read more

I'll be walking my first 5k race in a week. A bit nervous. I just plan on going out there and have fun, and that will be my exercise for the day. I am trying not to care about how fast I walk it. If it will be over an hour, so be it. ... Read more

I left the kids with my husband and went to a park's trail on my own. It was great!!!! I could hear myself think! :) I did my last run for the week at the trail. It's a 0.25 miles running intervals. I took it slow most of the time because I... Read more

Both my husband and I haven't been doing as much walking or running the past few weeks. We both had busy weeks at work, sick on and off. I have been resting my knees mostly. I did minor exercises here and there but nothing that break out h... Read more
