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!

Sunday, April 08, 2012      4 comments

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

Monday, April 02, 2012      2 comments

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!

Monday, March 26, 2012      3 comments

Going strong! 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

I ran!

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

Streak completed!

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

Tuesday, March 06, 2012      1 comments

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

Monday, March 05, 2012      2 comments

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

Monday, February 27, 2012      3 comments

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... Okay, backstory. When I was growing up, the art teacher at ... Read more

Well, I certainly ate my words...

Thursday, February 23, 2012      1 comments well as some other stuff... Tomorrow is mom's bday, and she looooves carrot cake. There is a cupcake place near us that has carrot cake cupcakes on Thursdays, so I went to go get one. Last year I went and they were sold out by the tim... Read more

Doing a bit better!

Thursday, February 23, 2012      1 comments

Still not good about the blogging when busy, but at least I have that excuse and not the "I'm avoiding my blog cause I'm sucking" excuse! Overall things are going well. Got my period this weekend, which explains the gain and water retention... Read more
