I went over on my calories by 400 last night, but I'm not going to get too freaked about it. I made some good choices yesterday. I had more water than normal and some of my carbs came from corn and black beans. Still carbs, but a healthier ve... Read more

I haven't been on here for awhile. I thought I could lose weight by just exercising regularly, but that didn't turn out to be true. I need to add the food portion also. I kept up with my running all winter. I ran 53 miles in January, Februar... Read more

5K training is still going well. I'm not buying soda for the house anymore. I will drink one at work - one 7.5 oz can of coke. My head hurt a lot at the beginning of the week, but isn't bothering me as much now. It's just something that I ... Read more

Today I changed the battery in my fitbit so that it's working again. I also made plans with the neighbor to go for a walk every day at 2pm. We're starting tomorrow, because I switched shifts at work today. So now I'm going to go do some clean... Read more

I went away for awhile, but now I'm back. I think life just got a little too crazy. Things are settling down into a nice routine. One of the biggest changes I made while I was gone, was to change jobs. I had worked in the school system for 7... Read more

progress made

First of all, I turned off my fitbit connection to SP. I didn't feel like it was accurately recording my real exercise time. It recorded every step that I took as exercise, and it inflated my numbers. It just didn't feel right to me. I do wa... Read more

Today I ran a mile. I asked my 11-year-old son to go to the high school track with me, and we ran a mile. It only took him 8 minutes and it only took me 15 minutes. I'm okay with that. I haven't actively ran since my first year in college, i... Read more
