School is Starting

Saturday, August 21, 2010      6 comments

School starts Monday. I homeschool our daughter and this year I'll be teaching 4 classes at a co-op, too. I am drowning in planning right now. Most of my planning is on the computer and my daughter is really complaining about all of the ti... Read more

C25K... Done!

Saturday, August 21, 2010      7 comments

I completed C25K today. Yeah!!! I started C25K (couch to 5K) on June 3rd, so the 9 week plan has taken me about 11 1/2 weeks. But, I did it! I can't believe I did, but I did! It was the best of times... it was the worst of times... No... Read more

Running is SO Mental!

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      6 comments

So, it is now dark when I need to get up and run and I'm struggling with what to do. I enjoy running in the neighborhood and get to sleep in a little later since I don't have to drive anywhere, but I feel safer running at our park where there ar... Read more

Sunday, August 15, 2010      4 comments

Hi, everyone. Sorry I've been MIA the past few days. We were at the lake house this weekend and we don't have internet service! I'll be trying to catch up with everyone, but I might just jump in tomorrow as this is the last week before school st... Read more

Today's Run was HARD!!!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      6 comments

Completed W8D1 today. It was hard and I didn't enjoy it much. It was hot (already 84 degrees by the time I was done at 7 am), humid, I'm sore from an hour with personal trainer yesterday doing legs, and I was trying to run faster. Someone also m... Read more

Good Days & Bad Days

Sunday, August 08, 2010      5 comments

I am NOT eating well. For the past approximately 2 weeks, I've either had "good days" or "bad days." If I mess up even a little (I mean, make a bad choice) then I just scratch the day, pretty much eat what I want, and stop recording everything! ... Read more

40 Minute Run!

Sunday, August 08, 2010      5 comments

Today I finished C25K W7D3. I'm on to week 8! W7D3 is a 25 minute run. I started off thinking I couldn't possibly go for 25 minutes. We were at the lake house and it was HOT. I started about an hour after I usually run. I'd eaten really poo... Read more

Sprints on a Treadmill

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      6 comments

My daughter and I went to the gym today where we did a machine that can act like an elliptical or a stair climber (do you know what it's called? I don't!), treadmills, and recumbant bikes. The biggest part of our workout was on the treadmi... Read more

C25K W7D1... redo :-)

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      4 comments

Well, I redid W7D1 today as yesterday's run was such a flop. First of all, my hubby had to go to work early so I knew I needed to get up early. I set the alarm, but forgot to check it and it didn't go off. So, I didn't have quite as much time as... Read more

C25K W7D1... I guess

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      3 comments

Today I attempted to do C25K (couch to 5K) W7D1 (week 7 day 1) which is a 25 minute run. Well, I did pitifully! And, that was strange because I've been 'killing' the times the past 4 or 5 runs... I've been going more than is required each day. F... Read more

July Review & August Goals

Monday, August 02, 2010      2 comments

Here were my July goals and how I did: 1. Track my food EVERY day. - I don't have internet at the lake house and so I didn't track the 5 days we were there. I also didn't track one other day. I don't think I'll set this goal again until we ha... Read more

Monday, August 02, 2010      1 comments

Hi, everyone. Well, first of all, I picked my daughter up from camp on Saturday morning. Yes, I cried when I saw her! She looked great and happy and I hadn't talked to her since the Sunday before! And, she's an only child and I homeschool her, s... Read more
