Woo-hoo!

3 days of exercise so far this week and 2 days of being in range for calories. That is motivating. I have avoided the cake a co-worker brought in... and I ate the strawberries instead (fresh, no sugar). I feel like I am getting some contr... Read more

...back on the horse...

Monday, May 17, 2010      0 comments

Due to the travel and stress of the other week, I really just kind of put myself into "to heck with it" mode. Passing the APFT really has buoyed me up and fueled by zest for feeling t'riffic and all exercisey. That led to my running last eveni... Read more

What do I do? I go out and run/walk and keep a decent pace. Running is hard... but I always feel so good afterwards I feel alive and vital, like I could conquer the world single-handedly. Hooah! Life is so much calmer this year than last... Read more

Long due for an update...

Eating and exercise have been kind of up and down based on what has been going on. Weight is maintaining fine. My daughter got married and let us know by text message the next day... I was glad to have my trip to Philly for my niece's wedd... Read more

Oh well.

This hasn't been the best week in eating or exercise. Had a great start and then kinda fell off the wagon. I have been short sleep... and I discovered something... I eat when I am tired in a ploy to help me stay awake. I am not hungry, but I ... Read more

That was the weekend that was.

I didn't eat too badly on Saturday, I just ate a lot and was afraid to tally the calories. I did eat salad twice, so it's prolly so so bad as I thought. Didn't get any exercise in to speak of either, apart from a few sit ups and push ups... oh ... Read more

BETTER!

Well, I'm not quite down to the 23:42 for the 2 miles yet, but I did do it in 24:05 and that includes 2 running stretches of 6 & 3:45 minutes each and only one minute walking. My sit ups are up to 38 and my push ups are well over 20!! ... Read more

drill weekend...

Sunday, April 18, 2010      4 comments

It was another long weekend, but it was actually great. Drill weekends kind of give me time away to be removed from the day to day grind. I like my unit a lot and and have a great time with the people there. I feel strong and energized. ... Read more

bouncing back again and again and again...

That's life in maintenanceville... I'm not down or anything, but resilience and the ability to bounce back from a not so good day/week/month has to be a characteristic of many MaintenanceVille residents from what I have seen. It just goes t... Read more

Neville... eulogy for a beloved furball...

That is a picture of Neville, who was very loud, obnoxious, always wanting "meowt", loving, sweet, playful and huge. He had ears and feet that were huge as a kitten and de... Read more

Just a frustration blog right now... My boss, the dietary fad queen... just came in at lunch a little while ago all excited about the "healthy" hot dogs she found... they were "all angus beef with no nitrates"... I am sure that since t... Read more

Took a break last night... really needed it...

I was on about 18 straight days of exercise, but I'm still generally pooped out... and last night it really hit. So I just took the night off... honestly I'm glad I did. Read more

Very long 2 weeks...

The good news is that things are actually going quite well. I'm just very tired. Still haven't gotten a day to sleep in since Daylight Savings Time kicked in last week... but I am sleeping more soundly and my body is adjusting to the the pre-t... Read more

I think I was right.

I've upped my exercise greatly in the last couple of weeks... I'm on day 13 straight!! By combining the Army Training with ensuring my 10K steps per day, I am very very busy (as evidenced by my killer calorie burn over the last couple of days).... Read more

Yep that many calories. My Spark came roaring back in the past couple of weeks. I have been over calories, but I am also burning way over goal this week... so I'm not too worried about it. The Army Physical Fitness program combined with my... Read more
