Ok, I have a couple of questions...
1. I like my "bike" photo background (though I wish the photos were smaller), but how and where do you all get those cute backgrounds? Are there some to choose from? Or are you using clipart?
2. How ... Read more
3 minutes. Right now, that seems like such a long time to run! But, just a month ago ONE minute seemed like a long time to run. In fact, on the day I started C25K, I truly didn't think I COULD run 1 minute. But, I did! And now 1 minute is fairly... Read more

How I Choose My Evening Snack
I have a whole new way of choosing my evening snack - what I used to call dessert. I look at my nutrition counter, and see what I still need for the day!
For example, today I still needed: calories, fat, fiber & calcium. So, I ended up havi... Read more

I started C25K W3 on Thursday. This is the start of 3 minute running. During the workout, you do two 90 second runs and two 3 minute runs.
On Thursday, I ran this with a friend and pushed myself... and made it! It felt SO good, but it was r... Read more
A Productive Morning (First Goal... MET!)
I've had a great morning.
First of all, I got up and did about 10 minutes of yoga using the Wii. It felt good just to stretch and hold (though I don't hold to the yoga philosophy, I do think they are great stretches and really like how Wii... Read more
I just read 4EVERADONEGIRLS July goals and thought I'd post mine, too! Does anyone else post their goals? (Also, I'd love to find SP challenges, but haven't really figured out how to do that.)
Here are my July goals:

Personal Trainer... Kind Of...
I went back to the gym I joined yesterday. For now, it is a 7 day trial membership. It is just a small gym, but part of a larger chain. And, the owner is wonderful.
I will be going to the gym Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri this week (while my dd ... Read more
Gym Trial Membership
I spent about 2 hours at a new gym today. Not working out, just getting oriented and talking to the owner. I'm now doing a 7 day free trial. I'll be working out there the next 4 days while my daughter is in class.
I really like the gym and ... Read more
I have a new user name. I created "tryingtolose38" when I signed up almost 2 years ago. At the time, I was 38 years old. I am now 40. And, my main goal isn't 'trying to lose' now... but trying to get healthier and meet some goals. So, I wanted a... Read more
Not too bad...
I had my weigh in this morning. After 8 days on the road, I weighed just 1 pound more than when I left! Not bad! (Also considering I have some water retention.)
I was disappointed not to get a workout in this morning. My daughter is in cam... Read more

I did a lot of exericse: 3 runs, 2 bike rides, a lot of hiking and walking, and some ping pong. On the other hand, I ate well the first 4 days, but... Read more
Still off track!
I still ate horribly today! Part of it wasn't my fault as there were no healthy options at ranch we were at...but I guess I could have prepared better. But, I also just let myself go again. I won't be home until dinner time tomorrow, so it might... Read more
Fun exercise at hotel...ping pong!
This morning I did w2d3of c25k. It is still hard to do but seeing sandia peak near me makes it so much more fun. We actually went up the peak today, though we used the easy way...the tram.
Tonight we are at a hotel and I played some ping p... Read more
