End of the month weigh-in and measurements today. As I said last week, I wasn't looking for a huge change... I was happy if I could just maintain for the month, and get my focus back. And, well, I'm happy to report that that's what I did! My wei... Read more
The wedding's over and I can finally get back to "regular life", which means back to healthy eating and exercising. So, I faced the scale today. I'm up 5 pounds from two weeks ago [but I'm convinced that that week's weigh in was a fluke anyway].... Read more
Ahhh I actually had an entire post written up and then I hit a button and it all went away! Nooooo!
Anyway, I know I haven't had time to check in here lately and I'm definitely not going to have time this coming week. My eating hasn't been ... Read more
Okay, I wrote a really long post about today's 5K on my off-site blog, which you can read here: fuchsiagetsfit.blogspot. com/2012/09/pawsox-5k-reca p.html To summarize, however: I finished it in 33:53, came in 14th out of ... Read more
So today at the gym, I decided to see if I could run a full mile without stopping to walk. I know, I'm running a 5k on Saturday but I've been doing training with run/walk intervals and plan on doing that on Saturday as well. But today, I just wa... Read more
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
