Chi running - the adventure begins!
I got my copy of Chi Running today. I have pretty much finished my 5k walking program (it's in the ramp-down week, but I don't actually walk until next weekend, so I'm repeating week 4.)
I'm starting to read today, and depending how quickl... Read more
Amazing how no exercise leaves you feeling ick.
I didn't exercise at all this weekend; it's been a steady stream of soloing at parenting, trips to the ER (husband has been very, very sick lately) and just plain being unmotivated.
I got to the gym this morning feeling unenergetic, and no... Read more
Food and Exercise
Today's been a pretty good day. I didn't want to get up this morning... it felt SO good in bed. I kept hitting that snooze button. It's one of my fast break goals, but I haven't managed to do it yet. Meh. I'm not a morning person. ;)
Went... Read more
What I fed my kid today
Today was a leftover day; we'd gotten a cheeseburger at a local BBQ restaurant, and she didn't finish it, but wanted to take it to school. Plenty of protein to give her late-day energy!
So to accent it, I added a handful of cherry tomatoes... Read more
Better day today
I went over my calorie goals today, but you know something? I'm okay with that!
It wasn't by much (about 350 calories), and given my intake shortage the last few days, I think it's actually a good thing. I made my ab class, and walked 2.7... Read more
After a long, stressful, sleepless night, we slept in this morning, didn't take my daughter to school (she'll take a personal day, I suppose) so I didn't hit the gym this morning.
I was looking forward to tonight, though, because I was goi... Read more
What I fed my kid today
I think I'm going to start a new series in my blog. I'm going to call it: "what I fed my kid today."
As part of my daughter's sensory disorder and general taste preferences, I'm working with her occupational therapis... Read more
I would rather forget this whole weekend.
As much as I would like to, though, I can't. It started out well enough. I went to a writer's meeting Saturday morning, took my family to the Ocmulgee Indian Festival that evening, and slept in Sunday.
It all went downhill from there. I ha... Read more
Nighttime at the gym
So I didn't get to do my morning workout this morning; I occasionally clean houses with a friend, and had to be at the client's house at 8. Then, we got a call from a second client who wanted an unscheduled full-house clean. I'm not complaining.... Read more
Overdid it a little... or a lot!
I kinda overdid it today, but in a good way.
It started out slow; I was tired and sluggish this morning. I dragged out of bed (late) and went to the gym. I walked for about 20 minutes, then got on the stationary bike. That was my first m... Read more
The body needs FUEL!
I can feel it today. I'm having a hard time eating (mostly because I just am NOT hungry!) It's still early. I did eat a banana and about 6 ozs of cantaloupe, though. I worked out this morning, and I can feel that my body needs something more s... Read more
Well, that's not what I expected...
One of the reasons I think I'm having such a high-speed initial weight loss is actually my caloric intake.
I'm actually having trouble meeting my goals! That's both exciting for me, and a little worrying. I've reached the point now where ... Read more
I dropped another 3.4 lbs this week! That's probably a little faster than is strictly necessary, but I'm overweight enough that I feel comfortable with it. It's not like I'm dropping 10 lbs in a week. ;)
So I'm down to 204.6. That's jus... Read more
The good and the bad
This has been both a good weekend, and a bad one. The bad first:
I haven't exercised since Thursday. Labor day weekend just screwed up my routine, and I gave in to the loving "encouragement" from my husband to just "take a day off." After... Read more
FOOD, calories, gym, and stuff
I'm going ot go ahead and warn you... this is going to get a bit rambly!
I'm on week two, day 3 of the 5k Your Way plan, and I happily walked 2.3 miles today. I really felt like I could do a lot more. I took the day off yesterday, pretty m... Read more
