Centennial ride

Sunday, October 07, 2012      5 comments

Just got back from a 100 mile bike ride. Single stupidest and most awesome thing I've ever done in my life. On one hand, I was stupid enough to ride 100 miles in 30 degree weather on extremely rough terrain with NO training. On the other hand, I... Read more

My willpower slipped this week...

Sunday, September 30, 2012      1 comments

I made the mistake of keeping sugar in the house (fruit roll ups, to be exact) for my husband and son. I know I've eaten more of them than the two of them combined. This is not good. I was strong against cakes in the lounge on two different... Read more

I wanted a donut this morning...

...I wanted it baaad. We're talking like I could TASTE it before I even saw it. I walked into HyVee this morning to get a salad for lunch, and that delicious fried dough and sugar smell wafted to my face immediately. My salivary glands went... Read more

Feeling REALLY good!

Monday, September 17, 2012      1 comments

I've had a string of really good days, pertaining to diet, renovations and life in general. Diet: I lost again this week! Down 2.2 from the past few weeks. Feeling really good about that. I feel a lot stronger and have so much more ene... Read more

No loss again, but interesting discoveries!

Sunday, September 09, 2012      3 comments

I did not lose again this week. I did have a piece of chocolate cake, and a few cookies this week, though. And those indulgences led to some interesting discoveries. I am fairly certain that sugar causes my migraines. I didn't have ANY migr... Read more

No weight loss

Monday, September 03, 2012      4 comments

I wasn't very strict with myself this week. I allowed myself a few M&Ms here, a piece of candy there, a bite of real pizza or two...and I noticed first hand the effect. For the first time since seeing the nutritionist, I did not lose any weight.... Read more

Making progress!

This morning I spent my morning with sledge hammer in hand beating our bathroom floor to a gravel pulp :) Under our furnace, which is now in the bathroom we're redoing, there is a concrete platform that is about 2 inches higher than the rest of ... Read more

Temptation is an evil witch.

Thursday, August 30, 2012      4 comments

Temptation got the better of me TWICE yesterdday. During a meeting there were pretzel m&ms right in front of me, and I made it through the first 40 min just fine, but the last 10 min I found myself grabbing a handful of them! Ack! Then MIL ... Read more

Upping my mileage

Monday, August 27, 2012      1 comments

Jan and I did a 4 mile run this morning! Longest I've ever ran. We walked a total of maybe 1/4 mile - just at the end of 2 long climbs (like 9 block climbs). I was pretty proud of us. We did it in 50 min, which is a 12 1/2 min mile. Not too shab... Read more

A good week

Sunday, August 26, 2012      3 comments

I made it through my first week with students! It was actually a really good week. I have some big classes but they seem like REALLY good kids this year so I think it will be okay. Our 7th grade class last year was really awesome, and they're s... Read more

I haven't seen it yet as I've been working all day, but the carpet got installed in the main room and 2 bedrooms of the basement!!! I just talked to hubby and he said it's amazing. I can't wait to go home! Things are going pretty awesomely ... Read more

Wow. This last few weeks just got away from me! I'm still here, though. Plugging away. Being successful! I feel like I'm in a pretty good routine with my food. I had another appointment with my nutritionist this week and she said I could h... Read more

3 weeks in!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      0 comments

Today my eating was pretty good. I woke up with a sore throat again today, so I didn't go spinning. I hope I can go tomorrow! Breakfast was eggs over medium and bacon. Tasty! I made some chicken salad for lunch and we had tacos for dinner. ... Read more

Back after slacking!

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      1 comments

Well, I'm recovered. Sort of. I caught whatever Max had. Sore throat, congestion. Sneezing, coughing, headache. I can't be too upset - throughout the entirety of my training I never got sick even when everyone else in the house was, my body held... Read more

I did it!!!

Sunday, August 05, 2012      6 comments

Well people. I am a triathlete. I did it. I survived it. It was AWESOME. Jan picked me up at about 4am. Our bikes were already at the race site, we dropped them off yesterday and they were monitored all night by the event volunteers. We wer... Read more
