Sick Week

Monday, January 19, 2015      6 comments

I'm on Day 6 of sickness, and I'm sick of being sick! All training has ceased. I wish I could sleep, but I'm too congested to breath. Ugh, hate this. How long does it take to get over a cold?... Read more

Sick Day

Friday, January 16, 2015      8 comments

I'm sidelined today by a nasty cold. I'm hoping it passes quickly because I was making such great progress with my running -- building back up to where I was before Christmas. AND I signed up for a 7K race in March, so I need all the time I can ... Read more

OCD Fun

Tuesday, December 30, 2014      5 comments

I seem to do better with the whole fitness / weight-loss thing when I become 100% absorbed by it. You know me - that whole middle ground thing eludes me. So I'm all-in. OCD time! I started up a Facebook group, and we have about 30 people! T... Read more

Recommitting

Monday, December 29, 2014      5 comments

Howdy! I'm back after being away (super busy) during Christmas, and now I'm seriously committing to getting back in shape. I'm excited! I believe that when you've been lazy and eating poorly for a while, your body just craves physical movem... Read more

Two Good Days

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      6 comments

Quickie update: Day 2 went well. I went a tiny bit over in calories, only because after I ate it, I discovered that the yogurt I had for supper was higher calorie than I expected (170!). I also ran, and it was HARD. I need to remember to never t... Read more

One Good Day

Tuesday, December 09, 2014      8 comments

The new, big number on the scale and the big bloated feeling shocked me into eating like a reasonable person yesterday. Nothing extreme. Just reasonable. I even did my toning exercises. I postponed my run until today though. It would have been t... Read more

UUUUGGGGGHHHHHHH!!

Monday, December 08, 2014      5 comments

Yes, I am rebooting. Again. I am sick of this hamster wheel. A few days of motivation and then............. a terrifying slide into obesity. I was on track for ONE WEEK before I completely stopped tracking. I'm not even sure why. Apathy? ... Read more

Hiccups

Monday, November 17, 2014      4 comments

Ah, November. I started the month with GREAT ambition. I was SUPER dedicated the first week. And then.................. I got lazy? I felt run-down. I suspected my iron was low again. I started slacking. And eating. I had a bad week. ... Read more

Just Like Starting Over

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      5 comments

I gained 12 pounds. It seemed like every bit I gained since last April's low point went largely unnoticed. I still felt good and my clothes fit. And then, gradually, I felt quite fat again. My pants are tight, and those few pounds that seemed oh... Read more

Conquering Fear

Thursday, June 19, 2014      5 comments

Yesterday I had the thing at work that I was totally dreading. I taught an online class. I've never done anything like this and pretty much NEVER EVER EVER do public speaking. I can get pretty tongue-tied. Deer in headlights. But I agreed ... Read more

Middle of June Already?!

Tuesday, June 17, 2014      5 comments

Summer is way too short! With our cold start to summer and school getting out so late, it is just now starting to feel like summer. I tell ya what, I'm taking a day or two off as soon as I get this class done. I feel like I need to kick back and... Read more

Day 3: Happy

Monday, June 16, 2014      4 comments

I'm happy to report that I stuck with my goals yesterday! I ran 3 miles. It was windy and humid, and so my pace was slower. I listen to RunKeeper updates while I run, so I knew my pace was slower than it felt. I tried to push a little harde... Read more

Day 2: Feeling Better

Sunday, June 15, 2014      3 comments

I have one good day under my belt (yesterday) and am feeling better about my ability to get back on track. I played tennis with my son yesterday AND did stretching and strengthening (according my half marathon training plan) AND ate well. ... Read more

Oh Boy... Starting Over Again

Saturday, June 14, 2014      6 comments

A person can only lie to themselves so long before the truth catches up to them. I felt like I was doing okay with eating whatever I want, without being too terribly piggish about it, and without gaining weight. I was only 3 pounds over my Bigge... Read more
