On the road again

Monday, June 21, 2010      4 comments

I am on the road again in two ways. One, as I mentioned yesterday, is that I am riding a bike again! The other way is that I am on vacation! (also, I am borrowing iPad to type so slow going) Bicycling...As I mentioned it has been several ... Read more

Bike ride

I went on my first bike ride in many years tonight. I was nervous, but it was great! We rode about 5 miles through the desert. It was hilly and beautiful and I loved it. Read more

one way to do it...

Friday, June 18, 2010      3 comments

I went on my walk/jog this morning and was still debating about whether to do W1D6 or go on to W2D1. Well, somehow, when I'd charged my iPod, I must have deleted W1! So, I 'had to' do W2! And, I did it!! I ran for 1.5 minutes at a time! I don't... Read more

I talked to a friend I haven't seen in about a year. A year and a half ago we were both exercising and dieting. I lost 15 pounds and she lost 25. I gained back 10 of my 15. Read more

Rocket Fuel & Positive Bedtimes

Thursday, June 17, 2010      6 comments

Yesterday I went to the bookstore to look for an exercise journal (bought one!) and books about 5Ks and triathlons. I ended up getting a beginners book for triathlons. (Oh, and do you have a favorite book about 5Ks? triathlons? eating/living hea... Read more

Can you do 5K starting from the couch?

Wednesday, June 16, 2010      9 comments

I just posted this question on the C25K forum, but thought I'd add it to my blog, too. I'm wondering if others on the C25K program are really starting from the couch or do they start exercising in other ways first. You see, I haven't done ... Read more

Week 2 Weigh-In

Tuesday, June 15, 2010      3 comments

I had my 2 week weigh-in this morning... and I'm down 3 pounds! I'm thrilled as at 1.5 weeks I was only down 0.5 pounds. I knew the scale would catch up eventually. I'm still running on momentum and staying within all of my goals every day! I wa... Read more

Learning to Run! Without Pain!

Monday, June 14, 2010      5 comments

So, last week I did Week 1 of C25K and my calfs were KILLING me every timeI ran. I bought some new shoes at Fleet Feet this weekend and thought that would solve my problem. It didn't! I was re-doing W1 so a friend could join me and, at about my ... Read more

Sprint Triathalon - Am I Crazy?

Saturday, June 12, 2010      4 comments

So, I've finished Week 1 of my Couch to 5K training. Yeah! And, I've scheduled two 5Ks. I'll be doing one on September 11th (probably more walk/run) and one on October 2nd (try to run this one). About 5 years ago I started training for a Sp... Read more

Need More Fiber & Calcium

Friday, June 11, 2010      3 comments

I just completed Day 11 and am doing really well staying within my ranges on calories, protein, carbs & fat. So, yesterday I decided to start tracking fiber & calcium, too. Yikes! I am NOT doing well on those 2 categories and really need to figu... Read more

Disappointing Weigh-In... but Off to Run!

Friday, June 11, 2010      4 comments

I'm now at a week and a half and just weighed in. I've been doing incredible with my diet & exercise... and STILL only 1 pound! Ugh! But, I know it isn't about the scale. It would just be nice to say "I've lost 'x' pounds!" Anyway, I have a... Read more

Nothing but Hot Dogs

Thursday, June 10, 2010      7 comments

I took my daughter to Watermelon Camp today. It's our church's version of VBS and it only lasts a day. The moms stay and it lasts about 5 hours out in the heat. The kids have a lesson, do crafts, go on a nature walk, and swim. And, we have lunch... Read more

Couch to 5K!!! (Day 1 & Day 2)

Wednesday, June 09, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday, I joined the Couch to 5K group and did my first walk/jog. Today, I did my second. You are supposed to take a break, but I wouldn't have been able to get 3 days in this week without doing it this week. First of all, I can't believ... Read more

1 Week Down... and Only 1 Pound :-(

Tuesday, June 08, 2010      1 comments

I was disappointed this morning when I weighed in that I'd lost only 1 pound during my first week. I've been doing SO good! I've exercised 6 of the 7 days. I've been within my calorie, fat, carbs & protein range every day. I've even eaten extra... Read more

No Back Pain!

Monday, June 07, 2010      0 comments

I have had backpain for years and it especially hurts to lay on my back at night. So, I rarely do it. Anyway, the past 2 nights I have spent some of my sleep time on my back... and I was able to roll over to my side without any pain! I love it! ... Read more
