I finished week 4 today! I'm actually really surprised at how *easy* it was this week. The schedule called for 5 intervals of 3 minutes running/2 minutes walking [compared with last week's 2 minutes running/3 minutes walking] and I was really ap... Read more
Trying not to let things get to me. But maybe if I write them down, I'll release them and feel better.
-There's a big Harry Potter conference happening in Chicago this weekend. Also a big [separate] wizard rock concert. If you don't know, I... Read more
Bored and saw this on a friend's blog so I figured I'd post it instead of mindless munching.
Age: 28. I feel like I should have my life more together at this age than I currently do butů oh well, I'm taking the scenic route!

I have this running commentary in my head of things I love now that I've lost 37 pounds and vastly improved my fitness. I'm going to write down all that I can think of right now.
1. No more back pain!
2. I can *literally* jump o... Read more
Just a few things to note:
1) I added a new blog post at my off-site blog. You can view it here: fuchsiagetsfit.blogspot. com/2012/08/what-differenc e.html It contains horrible, horrible "before" photos [for the sake ... Read more
Okay, I've thought them over and I just want to continue on what I did last month. Since I'm still working on 5K training, I don't want to add in something horribly new and mess that up just yet. So, here we go.

Just a quick post because I need to get to the gym early before plans for the day [I rearranged my gym schedule this week so I wouldn't have to get up early on Saturday, and instead now I'm up early on Wednesday!]. Since it's the beginning of th... Read more
Official weigh in yesterday. I was down 3.5 pounds which is really good. I'm not expecting to lose anything this week since that seems to be my pattern, but maybe that'll change now that I seem to have figured out the calorie situation [weeks I ... Read more
I've come to the conclusion that I might be babying my ankle. I don't have any pain on it [aside from when I walk on it wrong, which is a side effect of trying to walk on the inside of it to avoid pain for the last five months] but still, I'm re... Read more
I had my whole blog post planned out in my head while I was at the gym [does anyone else do that while they're working out? Just me? Okay then...] and now I have a completely different subject to talk about. When I got home from the gym, there w... Read more
Yesterday, I had a rough workout at the gym but I chalked it up to it being early in the morning [9am, and I've said previously that I am NOT a morning workout person] and doing tae bo for the first time in a month and a half the previous night.... Read more
Okay, I said that I wouldn't start doing official 5k training until August because I'm working on adding minutes slowly to make sure my ankle handles it. But it turns out that sparkpeople's "5K Your Way" training actually starts out with four mi... Read more
Well, I had to go to the bike shop today. I'd known for a while that my rear wheel was messed up, but it was manageable. But on Sunday's bike ride, two spokes broke and it got incredibly mis-aligned and was out of true. I had to ride the last ha... Read more
