Tracking what you eat does make a difference.

Monday, January 11, 2010      3 comments

(crossposted from my personal blog) This was the first week since embarking on this lifestyle change that I made a concerted effort to track what I'm eating. I'm doing it through SparkPeople.com. (And it's already driving Jeremy [my boyfrie... Read more

Yay for me!

I'm nearly halfway to my monthly fitness minutes goal and it's only ten days into the new year! :)... Read more

Strength training frustration

Wednesday, January 06, 2010      2 comments

So I'm relatively new to strength training. I also have some physical limitations to what I can do, between the bum knee, wrist, and back. I did pick up Erin O'Brien's Strong Body, Ageless Body DVD and discovered that it's way too tough on me. I... Read more

Measurements

Monday, January 04, 2010      2 comments

I took my measurements this morning. I take them on a monthly basis. I've been tracking exercise, weight and measurements on and off since 2006, so I have a pretty decent record of how I've done in the past versus now. At any rate, I realized th... Read more

Knee aches aren't keeping me down.

Sunday, January 03, 2010      2 comments

So I've had patellofemoral pain syndrome in my right knee since high school--more than 20 years at this point. I've had two surgeries on the knee. So it tends to ache at the most inopportune times. I've learned to listen to it when I'm working o... Read more

Tangible progress

Sunday, December 27, 2009      0 comments

So last Tuesday was the last day I walked. Until today. Yes, I took five days off...between Christmas travel and prep, plus dealing with snow and ice and rain and flooding (love those NC mountains!), I just didn't get in any exercise. However, t... Read more

Starting the "long walk" training

Sunday, December 20, 2009      0 comments

Well, today was our "long walk" day...we did 4.15 miles in 77 minutes. So we're still doing about an 18:34 minute mile pace, but it'll improve, I have no doubt. Jeremy and I have mapped out two solid loops around our neighborhood--which is somew... Read more

ARRRRRGH!

Friday, December 18, 2009      2 comments

I just signed up to walk the first-ever Flying Pirate Half Marathon! Paid for and everything...it's scheduled for April 18, 2010 in the Outer Banks! I'm stupid excited...not only because it'll be my first-ever half (and there's a VERY generous c... Read more

Strength training

Sunday, December 13, 2009      0 comments

Still wondering if I'm doing enough upper body strength training. I did about half an hour of an upper body workout on the Sports Active for Wii, but I'm really not feeling like I did anything substantial. I do follow some of the strength traini... Read more

Listening to one's body

Saturday, December 12, 2009      1 comments

Cold and rain do not make for a good combination in my world. It's not raining yet, but it will be soon. I can tell, because I am a human barometer. Every joint I have ever injured aches like nobody's business when the combo of rain and cold are... Read more

Seeing progress

Monday, December 07, 2009      3 comments

I knew my body was tightening up! Especially in my upper back/bust area. In three weeks, I've lost 1.5 inches across my back. The upper body workouts and walking must be making an impact, and I'm glad for that. I just hope the numbers keep decre... Read more

Getting better at this

Saturday, November 28, 2009      3 comments

I'm starting to see some changes in my fitness level...for the better. I made a point to take a 2.25-mile walk on National Overconsumption Day (okay, Thanksgiving), and I also didn't overeat. Today I did the Leslie Sansone 5-mile fat-burning wal... Read more

New shoes!

Sunday, November 15, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday I went and got properly fitted for a pair of running (walking) shoes. Did the 2.25-mile loop around my neighborhood in them...they seem to be a good match. Need to get different socks, but I think that these will work just fine for my ... Read more

Setbacks

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      0 comments

Didn't flame out, exactly...have had some physical setbacks. I have been having some pulse rate issues (high/irregular) and also, the weather changed, which has made every previous injury I have had ache like nobody's business. I know I have ost... Read more

Twice in one day

Wednesday, October 07, 2009      3 comments

I made myself get up this morning. I didn't want to, but I did...and did the high calorie burn Leslie Sansone WATP DVD. Then tonight, I went walking around my neighborhood w/my BF for nearly an hour--2.25 miles. Yes, that's slow, but still nursi... Read more
