I'm really bummed. Not only can't I exercise for who knows how ... Read more
How many of you reach for the wrong foods when you're in a hurry, just because it's easily accessible? I know I do, and I'm not nearly as busy as most people (just lazy!).
I've found a couple of ways that even a lazy person can make better ... Read more
I had hoped to get my workout done earlier in the day, but I wasn't able to pull it off. I managed to get my walk/jog in by early evening and did about :32 or so, but the jog is killing me on this road. Time to get in the car and scope out oth... Read more
I thought I was going to take the day off from working out today, or at least from training towards the 5K walk/jog, but I think I ended up doing more than if I had just gone and done it.

I just recently started out again walking more often, and have added a bit of a jog into the routine as I prepare for the virtual 5K walk/jog at the end of Oct. I didn't bother with running shoes yet because the jog portion of my training was o... Read more
I was a pro with a hula hoop as a kid, so I couldn't resist picking one up today to give it another whirl. What was I thinking? This stuff is harder than it looks!
After looking around, I found that my cheap-o dollar store purchase isn't ... Read more

I'm still journaling my training workouts for the Trick or Treat Trot virtual 5K. I just started this week, but it was a good one, and I also did well with food and overall motivation. My weekend workout is posted at the link below.
I track everything here on SP, but it's nice to have something that will take into account my weight to get a more true picture of what I'm really burning when I exercise. I found these neat calculators that will do that, and I've posted them o... Read more
I was going to take yesterday as a day of rest, but while I ended up not doing much, it still didn't go quite as planned. You can read about my excursion on my journal at the link below.

Another good day yesterday for both food and fitness. I did my first day of the 5K training suggested here on SparkPeople, walking for 4 min, then jogging for 1, repeating until 25 min are completed. It wasn't pretty, but I did it!

Yesterday was a good day for both food and fitness. I stayed within all (I think) nutritional guidelines, and got out for a good bit of exercise trying to map out a course for the upcoming virtual 5K. I thought I might have overdone it, but I f... Read more
Now I've done it.
I've got several blogs on other niche topics, but I wanted a place where I could chronicle my day to day activities, as well as share tips and tricks, things I've come across in my journey towards fitness that might not be... Read more
