Week 3 of WW
3rd week of WW and I've lost 5.5 lbs. Woo hoo! It's going pretty well. I'm letting myself use some of the extra weekly pts when needed, something I always tried not to do when I did WW before (which was probably why I always got so hungry and... Read more
Back at it! And other updates :-)
Well, I said I wouldn't do it, but I rejoined weight watchers. They had a sale for 40% off the online part, so I got 3 months for like $48. Averages to about $4 a month. I don't have time to go the meetings, so this sounded perfect for me. I... Read more
Day 1 went well
Yesterday I ate pretty good all day :-). Got my exercise in, didn't eat after dinner. I think that part was KEY! I prepared meals for the next 3 days last night. Lasanga (low fat cheese, lean turkey) and home made sloppy joes using lean turk... Read more
Update and back at it!
It was a busy busy summer! Both my boys are doing football, I had no idea how much of our time this would take up! My oldest has 3 nights of practice/ week (2-2.5 hours each time!) and games are on Saturdays (be there 1 hour early, games are 1... Read more
Today was my 2nd 5K of the year. It went better than last month! Last month my time was 33 1/2 min, today it was 32 min 05 sec! My husband and I went by ourselves this time, left very early this morning. When the alarm went off at 5:30 AM on... Read more
Running and the beach!
I decided to do my run at home instead of the gym today since I'm not going to be lifting today. So my plan is to do half hour on the treadmill. The kids are still asleep, must have been a busy weekend for them! I worked all weekend, looking ... Read more
Stage 2 NROL4W completed!
I finished stage 2 of New Rules of Lifting for women this week. The book recommends taking a week off in between stages, so I think that this following week I am going to concentrate on my running and doing some yoga/stretching. My husband and... Read more
3 more 5K's planned!
My husband and I have decided to do at least 3 more 5K's this year. One in July, Sept and Oct. I'm really hoping to decrease my time from my last run. I'm also still doing New Rules of Lifting for Women, finishing up stage 2. I was sore from... Read more
End of vacation... Back to work :-(
Well, today is the last day of my vacation. Overall, I packed a lot of fun things into it without traveling too far or spending a lot of money... We visited 2 separate friends in separate cities that have recently moved. It was great seeing t... Read more
Finished the 5K~
I did my 5 K this morning! It was a very scenic route (through our local zoo). It was pretty hard! Some people in front of us kept walking or running very slow, so we'd have to get around them. There were parts that were a bit narrow so gett... Read more
5K in the morning!
My 5K is in the morning. I'm nervous! This is my 2nd 5K but the last one was a few years ago! I'm nervous that I didn't train enough, didn't run outside enough (started that way, but the last couple months have been running on the treadmill a... Read more
Signed up for a 5K
We finally signed up for our 5K last night. We had to make sure that there would be someone there to watch our kids while we run. My husband's dad said he can, yay! So Jon and I are going to run together this time (this will be hard for him, ... Read more

I decided that I need to start counting calories again. I'm working way to hard in the gym to blow it on eating whatever! I think I've done ok with my eating, but I know that if I really pay attention to it I will finally be able to break past... Read more
Just had to get going!
Today when I got to the gym, my legs (esp my quads) were very sore. I got on the treadmill, started walking... Once it hit 2 minutes I increased my speed, but my body was not wanting to get into the grove! Well, I continued to run. I even to... Read more
