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
The streak continues...
I was nervous today because we had lunch catered into us from Qdoba because of Teacher Appreciation Week. I haven't eaten at Qdoba for a long time (I'm partial to Chipotle, but it's been even longer for them), so I didn't really know what to exp... Read more
Streak Day 2
Today was an interesting day.
Had pilates this morning. Had a banana pineapple green smoothie for breakfast. We are doing standardized testing all this week so there's a huge chunk of time where kids are in my room that but it's silent. I ... Read more
Streak day 1
Okay. Me and a friend have decided that streaks are where it's at. Consistency and sticking with it through temptation is the hardest part. So we decided to reward each other for streaks. This week we each set goals, and we have only ONE get-out... Read more
I've definitely been flying on autopilot lately. Just thinking "okay, this is good enough." Or "I'm doing enough. It's fine." Meh. Very apathetic towards it all. I'm not happy with this attitude.
Time to refocus again! MIL bought a Blendtec... Read more
A good weigh in
I'm very happy with my weigh in this week - down 2.4 even with pizza on Thursday and eating out Friday for mom's bday. Very pleased.
On a totally opposite note, though...
When I was growing up, the art teacher at ... Read more
