First things first: I lost 1 pound this week. Pretty good, but not what I was hoping for. I was down 2 mid-week, which would've made 40 pounds lost total, but there were reasons out of my control that the scale went back up. Honestly! I'm not ma... Read more
Yeah... this is a week I'm going to have to do over. That's okay. It happens. I wish it didn't happen just a *week* before my actual 5K but, well, what are you going to do?
This week's training called for 8 intervals of 3 minutes running, 1... Read more
[Sorry, I just had to keep with the alliteration there!]
I need to face facts and admit that my nutrition hasn't been the best ever the past few weeks. I don't know why, I've just had a sudden disinterest in food. I normally *love* cooking ... Read more
I wasn't feeling motivated to do much of anything today [even skipped the bike ride with my meetup group this morning] but I'd promised that I would go out for a run today due to skipping the bike ride. I wasn't aiming for an intense run, just a... Read more
The Android market, that is. I'm looking for a new running/biking app for tracking my distance and pace. I've been using MapMyFitness for a couple years now and I've honestly had no complaints about it. But since I mostly used it for biking, I d... Read more
...or at least, that's what it feels like. So, after running outside yesterday, I've been closely monitoring my ankle all day today. And although there's been no pain, it's been feeling... well, not *right*. Not like it was before. Just an... of... Read more
So, I've mentioned before that my aunt had ovarian cancer this spring, and just recently found a lump in her breast. She went in for a biopsy last week or the week before, and she finally got the results back today. It's malignant. My aunt, who ... Read more
I started it! I was unsure about it because of my ankle, I actually started the "baby" Power 90 program a couple weeks ago but it was way too easy. So here I am, doing P90X. And honestly? It's not that bad. I mean, yes, I *do* need higher weight... Read more
I had a busy, stressful week this week. My future sister-in-law's bridal shower was today and I was busy preparing for that. I had a LOT of stuff to do, despite it not really being my job! I spent most of my time from Tuesday onward working on s... Read more
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 but… oh well, I'm taking the scenic route!
Bed Size: ... Read more
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
