I'm PMSsing like a mo right now. NOT helping things.... Read more
This was a VERY busy week. Pair that with the anxiety that ensued from signing up for the triathlon and I just couldn't stop eating! Thank goodness I've got 12 more weeks to get THAT out of my system! I am down from last week, but last week I wa... Read more
I'm going to do it.
I'm going to do the triathlon. It's August 5th, which gives me 13 weeks to train. There's a sprint distance and an Olympic distance, and I'm going to do the sprint. It's a 1/2 mile (750m) swim, 12 mile (20k) bike ride and 3 mile (5k) run. I was ... Read more
Weigh in and the week ahead
Well, I was up 2.4 today. I attribute it to the swelling around my ribs and general water retention, but it doesn't make me happy. I am trying not to come down too hard on myself considering I can feel myself getting stronger and more fit every ... Read more
I just ran 20 minutes without stopping! I didn't know if I'd be able to do it, it's the 3rd workout of week 5 of C25k. On Thursday, Jan and I did day 2, which is supposed to be a 5 min warmup, 8 min run, 3 min walk, 8 min run, and 5 min cool dow... Read more
I ran on the TRACK today! This is a big deal to me. Any time in my past I was supposed to be running on a track, I walked. Up until this point, I only ran with distraction - namely Netflix on my nook, which means running on the treadmill. Last w... Read more
Well, I ended up losing .8 last week which is good. I was kinda hoping for more, but I'll take it. I've been steadily losing about 1 lb per week since I started running. I'm feeling good about that.
I don't know if it was my period, lack of... Read more
Pardon the abundance of information, however I got my period today and I haven't had this much pain associated with my period in probably 10 years. I took ibuprofen, tylenol, and I'm sitting in sweat pants with a heating pad on my stomach, but O... Read more
Today is the first time in the history of my life that I've ever done a workout where I ran more than walked.
I started week 4 of the C25K today and, including warm up and cool down, I ran 16 min and only walked 14. 2 sessions of running 5 ... Read more
I think I've found the key!
So I feel as though since I started running, keeping my calorie intake to under 1500 for at least most days, and strength training twice per week, I've been successfully losing around 1 lb per week. I'm more than happy with that. It's the steadi... Read more
Weekly check in
Last week was a good week. I lost .8 lbs which is great, considering my body usually takes a week to catch up that would mean that that's how I did while in Wisconsin. Running is getting easier. Doesn't hurt cardiovascularly anymore, just the mu... Read more
Still going with my streak! 3 weeks done!
I was in Wisconsin all last week for Spring Break with my parents. It's much harder to eat well there, but I did pretty darn good! We at out on average twice per day, and I still managed to stay within range on all but one day... Read more
Well, my streak is continuing. Made it through the first week just fine. The last 5 days I've been incessantly hungry, but still managed to keep on going. I still haven't been losing anything, which is really irritating and frustrating. I'm stil... Read more
Well. I jogged. Slowly. But I did it!
I started my C25K today, and I did day one of the treadmill training. Basically, it was a 5 min warmup, then alternate between jogging for 1 min and walking for 90 sec. It wasn't too bad. I love my new ... Read more
I did really well this week! There was one day I went over by like 100 calories, but otherwise I've been right on track! I met all of my other goals, too! One week down!
I didn't lose anything this week, in fact I gained a pound. I attribut... Read more
