Asphalt is Best for Me
Wednesday, April 08, 2009      0 comments

I decided that, since we had SNOW FLURRIES in April (what the heck?)...I would use my neighbor's treadmill. I have not been on one in some time...and definitely not this year (until yesterday). I made the biggest mistake (I think). Instead of go... Read more

I have decided to prep for a marathon. There is a local one that I hope to run in this October...but I will look at others in case it is tough to get in. I am nervous, excited, and hoping for good things! After reading the first few chapters of ... Read more
It's Me vs. The Pound
Saturday, April 04, 2009      0 comments

I encountered the same problem early last month. I was fighting the same pound. I would weigh in, and it would be gone. The next day, it would be back. That same darned pound on the scale! I know that, after some perserverance...that pound came ... Read more

It can be tough to plan a party and ensure that you win by having healthy choices...and your guests (some of whom could care less about if this and that are healthy) have a good time. We are celebrating my husband's college graduation this weeke... Read more
A Spoonful of the Elliptical Makes the Scale Go Down!
Thursday, April 02, 2009      2 comments

After a rough patch with the scale, all is right with the world today. I was on the elliptical for just under an hour last night. Five minute intervals (five easy, five hard) until I finished. I'm still figuring out my HRM watch. It was not set ... Read more
My fave new jeans

I love QVC. Watch often. Or go to their website to seek deals. They had a pair of Motto jeans and since I was revelling in my new size...I decided to try this brand. I LOVE them! The inside of the jeans (just at the top) and inside of the pocket... Read more
Water Retention = Bah!
Tuesday, March 31, 2009      1 comments

The visitor is just around the corner, and my scale #s have gone up the last two mornings. The downside? Well...there are two. The numbers going up. AND the new size clothing is snug. So I need to shed this water retention AND shed some more po... Read more
Runners/Joggers/Walkers...please read me!

I have something important to share. If you don't have a HRM watch (or one that you wear around your middle...I'd much rather have the watch) then please spend the pennies on one. It is worth it. I bought one just before my 5k. I did not set it ... Read more

I had been eyeballing sizing charts as I keep track of my measurements. Recently, I saw that my measurements were spot on with a size 12. Say wha? At the start of the year, I filled out a size 18. Could this really be? Seriously? My work pants w... Read more

Thursday, March 26, 2009      2 comments

I would not have told you that, on Dec. 27, 2008, when I went to the doctor for an ear infection...that within a few days I would put into motion a plan to lose weight. There I was at 191 lbs. Where did my motivation come from? I do not kn... Read more

Water is life. I get that. But of all the days that I want it to only flow from rivers, streams, and my water Saturday. My first 5k. After I cross that finish can pour buckets. Just give me dry pavement for an hour. ... Read more

On the Heels of the 160s

First of all, let me say that I am glad that I take these changes in my lifestyle each day at a time. Each day, I renew my commitment to reading labels, measuring true portions for myself and having it rub off on my DH (who did not get me the St... Read more
