I've been doing a LOT of strength training in the last eight weeks [I'm so sad that there are only two weeks left in this fitness program! Although I plan on doing the next session too...] and it definitely shows!
So, my new gym does this recurring 10 week fitness program called Fight for Fitness. The new session starts on Monday, and I've been excited about it ever since I saw the flyer a few weeks ago. Basically, for $200, I get 30 hours of personal tra... Read more
So, I finally joined my local YMCA yesterday and went this morning for my first workout. I had planned to get there by 8am so I could do some lap swimming before the adult lap swim ended at 9 [Saturdays during the summer, there are kids' swimmin... Read more

Since I now have a paying job, I'm working through that backlog of stuff I've been meaning to buy. A few things are running related, and I thought I'd do a quick write-up about them here.
First of all, there's the SpiBelt. I posted a full r... Read more
Well, I think winter weather has officially left. We had some frost last week but we're due for our first summer thunderstorm tonight so, it's here. With the change of seasons [no, spring doesn't exist here in the northeast], I have many other c... Read more
Phew, we're back up and running this morning! I have to say, the site being down for so long yesterday was worrisome! I had tracked most of my food while at work, so I knew where I was for my calorie ranges. But then I only had a half hour for d... Read more
Last March, I took on fitness as my full-time job. I had been unemployed since moving 9 months before that, I had gone through a terrible bout of depression, and I had gained a lot of weight. In March, I decided to turn things around. Sure, mayb... Read more
Well, I went down to New York last week and took lots of pictures of cherry blossoms and other signs of spring while I was there, all the while lamenting that spring comes so much later in Rhode Island. [If you want to see my pictures, they're h... Read more

Did I stick to proper portions? No, I didn't. I seem to be hitting this 4 times a week, which is better than 0 times a week that was just a few weeks ago, but I still need to do work on it.
Did I do a morning run or yoga? No,... Read more
Once again forgot last night... I don't know why I've been so tired lately!

Once again forgot to do this last night... I was tired!
Did I stick to proper portions? No, I fell prey to cookies. An entire package of them. I don't know what happened. I think I'm going to enact a no cookie rule in the house... Read more
[Quite late, I know, I was exhausted after yesterday's race and had to go to bed early anyway because of today's race and DST, plus I just completely forgot.]
Did I stick to proper portions? Yes, I did.

Did I stick to proper portions? Sadly, nope. I thought maybe I was doing well enough to challenge myself with some ice cream but... oops, suddenly the entire pint was gone. I didn't plan it! I was good about portions for everything e... Read more
