Finally--interval training!

Saturday, September 11, 2010      1 comments

Crossposted from my personal blog. So, I'm crazy late to the interval training game. Admittedly, I've been putting it off. It wasn't as bad as I was anticipating (although Jeremy was consistent in his "we're not going fast enough" smart-ass... Read more

Pushed through

Saturday, August 21, 2010      3 comments

This is crossposted from my personal blog. So we've been stuck for awhile on not being able to walk more than five miles without stopping for some reason. These reasons tended to range from "I don't wanna any more" to "I'm rubbing a blister... Read more

Ran a SparkAmerica minutes report.

Saturday, August 14, 2010      1 comments

So I had set a monthly goal of 1,000 fitness minutes at the start of this year. The actual SparkAmerica total came out to be 11,968 (not 12,000--weird). Anyway, I haven't actually hit 1,000 fitness minutes in a month since January. Not even the ... Read more

Back to tracking

Monday, August 09, 2010      0 comments

So I know that tracking what goes in my mouth is pretty effective for me with regard to weight loss. Yet I tend to sabotage myself by not doing it. I will make a concerted effort to break this bad habit--as of today, I'm back to tracking. ... Read more

New shoes--check. New socks--check. New time to get out of the house before it gets too crazy hot--check. Still unable to push through 5.4 miles--check. What is going on? Thing is, my body CAN take this sort of punishment. I've walked ... Read more

One step forward, two steps back

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      2 comments

Also known as self-sabotage. I have done this before. I lose some weight and/or inches, I feel better about myself, I start slacking. I know deep down that I simply cannot do this anymore, yet I still continue this behavior. It's taking me... Read more

Neglecting myself? Never again!

Sunday, July 18, 2010      2 comments

I've been allowed to stray from my goals of fitness and weight loss by sweetened food and ultra-hot temperatures outside. I've been eating too much sugary stuff (calorie-rich and nutrient-poor) and not exercising. Which is bad all around, since ... Read more

Ups and downs in training

Saturday, June 19, 2010      1 comments

Well, it's been three weeks since I last posted. That was to tout my ability to hike seven miles. Well, that same weekend (Memorial Day, for those keeping score), literally when we were leaving to get in the car to drive home, I wrenched my back... Read more

Wow, all that half marathon training was good for something.

Sunday, May 30, 2010      1 comments

Visiting with Jeremy's family over Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday, Jeremy, his brother, and I went for a hike. Did I mention that they live outside of Asheville, NC? Where there are lots of MOUNTAINS? (This is significant...we live in Raleigh, ... Read more

Change in plans

Sunday, May 16, 2010      0 comments

Well, Jeremy and I drove the course for the City of Oaks Half Marathon and decided we didn't want to do it after all. So we switched gears, and decided on another race for the fall--the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon, on October 24. We also decided ... Read more

Starting the next phase of the journey

Saturday, May 08, 2010      0 comments

You know the journey: the one that's a million steps, but it starts with the first? That's where I am. :P Today is nearly three weeks since the Flying Pirate. And I've been a slug for most of that three weeks, and it's aggravating me. My o... Read more

Back to logging my food

Sunday, April 25, 2010      0 comments

Now that the half marathon and vacation are over, it's time to get back to logging my food again. This is the part about weight loss I hate, but I realized at the beginning of the year when I was that I was successful in losing weight when I was... Read more

A bit late in posting my official chip time....

Tuesday, April 20, 2010      4 comments

I finished the Flying Pirate Half Marathon on Sunday and was all set to come back to the computer and post my time, but a friend unexpectedly passed away Sunday afternoon, so I'm just now getting back online to make my post-event post. So, ... Read more

Less than two days till the half!

Friday, April 16, 2010      6 comments

It's finally here! We're leaving tomorrow for the Outer Banks, and the race is at 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. So excited...even though I'm walking it, it's still 13.1 miles of walking. It's definitely an endurance event! :P I have absolutely... Read more

Personal best!

Saturday, April 03, 2010      1 comments

This was the first time my BF and I got up at a decent hour (i.e. early) to walk...we had planned to do so when we did our dry run, but since that didn't happen, the goal is for the next two weekends to get up early enough in the day--before it ... Read more
