I must have angered the exercise gods . . .

Thursday, June 04, 2009      0 comments

So yesterday was one of my off days from running, when I go to the gym in the morning and then walk about 3.5 miles on my lunch hour. I dutifully headed out for my walk at 12:30 only to get caught in a freak hail storm in the middle of the da... Read more

Finally Lost those Pesky 5lbs from Spring Break!

Tuesday, June 02, 2009      0 comments

I can't believe that I could gain 5 pounds in two weeks of goofing off and then take a couple of months to lose them. Wow. I didn't think I'd ever see the scale move again. I've been working out like a mad woman and doing really well at keepi... Read more

I can't believe it - 60 minutes on the stairmaster!!

Saturday, May 02, 2009      1 comments

OMG! I never thought I'd actually do it - I just set the timer for 60 minutes in case something good came on TV while I was stepping, so the machine wouldn't cut off in the middle of whatever I was watching. As (bad) luck would have it, someon... Read more

Friday and Feelin' Good :-)

Friday, April 17, 2009      0 comments

Okay, so I went jogging on Tuesday, not knowing what kind of state my foot would be in afterwards, but unable to wait it out any longer. On Wednesday I was fairly miserable. My heel hurt so much, I almost wished I hadn't tested it by running. ... Read more

"Ran" 4 Miles Today!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009      1 comments

I'm still dealing with the pain in my left foot from tearing that tendon months ago. I decided that I would stay off my foot as much as possible last week while I was on vacation. I think that helped some, but the pain is still lingering, just... Read more

Trying to Catch my Second Wind

Monday, April 13, 2009      1 comments

We just came back from vacationing in Sunny Phoenix, AZ for a week. Hubby, two kids (one was in Washington DC on a school trip) and three dogs piled in the truck and headed east to hang out poolside for a week. Needless to say we ate and drank... Read more

Paying for Slacking Off . . .

Tuesday, January 13, 2009      0 comments

Around Thanksgiving I started cutting back on my exercise school had really ramped up and there were family gatherings to attend, so I just told myself that after the holidays Id get right back to it. December was worse final exams and par... Read more

Survived Thanksgiving

Thursday, December 04, 2008      0 comments

Well, I managed to get through Thanksgiving virtually unscathed. I was a nervous wreck about taking 5 days off in a row from working out. We went camping for the holiday and I only managed to get in one good hike. But, even though I told myse... Read more

Doing Better This Week

Thursday, October 30, 2008      0 comments

My head is screwed on a little straighter this week. I've been sooooo busy, at work and at home. School has gotten INSANE for me. I don't know how I keep my sanity some days. Hubby's been traveling (again!), so I get to play single mom this... Read more

Stumbling

Wednesday, October 15, 2008      1 comments

So, after reaching the 20 pound mark, I somehow decided that I am not going to lose any more weight, and that this program is not going to work for me anymore. It's so irrational, and I don't know why, but I spent a couple of weeks telling myse... Read more

People are Starting to Notice

Saturday, September 27, 2008      0 comments

There's nothing in the world like someone telling you that you look noticeably thinner. Yesterday, two people at work made unsolicited comments about how much weight I've lost. That's totally renewed my motivation. I feel so proud of myself f... Read more

Feeling Energized This Week!

Thursday, August 28, 2008      0 comments

So, I didn't lose any weight this week, but I didn't think I would because it was the week of my period. I did lose another inch in my waist and half an inch in my neck. I'm feeling really optimistic this week. I've been doing this for over a... Read more

Shut up!! Is the scale broken?

Wednesday, August 20, 2008      0 comments

Last week I lost a grand total of zero pounds. I wasn't surprised, but I was definitely sad. I spent the past week feeling down and thinking (irrationally, of course) that there's no way I can lose weight, even if I never eat another morsel. ... Read more

I had a good run today!

Monday, August 11, 2008      0 comments

I went out for my usual walk/jog, but after walking for a few minutes, my legs became possessed by some kind of demon and just started running. I had a great run - about 2.5 miles, including some hills. Not that 2.5 miles is a long run, but i... Read more

Achieved a Personal Goal Today

Friday, August 08, 2008      1 comments

I've been slowly trying to integrate running back into my workout. I can't believe that only a year and a half ago I was able to run a half marathon without stopping. I've got such a long way to go. I've been doing a combination of walking an... Read more
