... but my mind is everywhere else today... not in a bad way... just spacey. I'm trying to blog everyday... I am happy, got myself back up to 14 push ups... it's a slow process, esp since my goal is 25.... but I have done 14 & 12 today in s... Read more

I am so happy to have a battery back in my pedometer again... I know I will really get back on the horse with gusto now! I love that 10K steps per day goal! I also stayed in calorie range... upper end, but in range on everything!! S... Read more

I got on the treadmill and had a good walk. The cold seems to be drawing off and my stamina is returning. The walk also helped my back.. it feels much better. I did have some interesting songs spin up on my mp3 player: 1) Hundred Hearts... Read more

Spinning my wheels...

I have been overall doing better with exercise and eating and the general "getting back on my program"... but it's frustrating when I have a really good week and then something happens to stall out my progress... usually things beyond my control... Read more

The Army still sits glacier-like...

Still no orders... Sunday is 6 months since I was commissioned. I've still done nothing, and they've not paid me for the privilege... so I guess it's a wash. I'm in their system somewhere... but nobody seems to know what is going on. Meh. ... Read more

Well... keeping it going...

I managed to walk 3.85 miles tonight on TM, I was alternating walking 3.5 mph (17 min mile) for 2 minutes with walking 4.0 mph (15 min mile) for 2 minutes... and it felt great... I mainly was going for an endurance thing rather than an exertion ... Read more

Really hating this cold...

Monday, January 11, 2010      2 comments

I made it through 9 minutes of 30 day shred.... and then ran out of gas. This is far from the worst cold I've ever had, but it is sapping my energy... so I'll just baby step it and rebuild slowly. Just frustrated... But I did manage ... Read more

Only did 38 minutes on TM tonight, but I kinda ran out of gas... and I am sure I'm coming down with a cold. But I exercised and stay just within calorie limits. My old resolved is returning... and my random playlist helped: 1)... Read more

Snow day and my back hurt...

Friday, January 08, 2010      3 comments

So I didn't exercise much. I jogged in place for 3-5 minute segments in my living room and managed to accumulate 7100 steps. Not too bad for a day when my back hurt. I laid on the floor with my legs up in my chair and became a cat couch... Read more

Fear and loathing in mid-Missouri...

Honestly, I have been afraid to step on the scale here at work. They are checked for accuracy once a year by a fellow with actual weights that are meant to do just that. So our scales are accurate to 300 lbs+. My home scale is much more f... Read more

Great start last week... then fell off @ the end...

But it's a new week! So we will just restart. I didn't count calories, but I did dust off my trust Leslie Sansone 5 mile walk last night... it was just what I needed, she was just what I needed. I was amazed that I started with about 1350... Read more

Actually, I have made it to day 4 of exercise. I'm only burning about 200-250 calories each day, but I am starting to rebuild my consistency. Today was a treadmill walking day... but I am starting to put incline on that puppy, which accord... Read more
