Well I passed my APFT with my best score yet! I dropped in push ups by 2 and sit ups by 3... but I sooo rocked the run! I ran the 2 miles in 19:48! So, with the way it is scored, I rocked the APFT. I scored 226/300! I will tak... Read more

Tomorrow morning I run my 2nd 5K, but my first since June 2008. My time then was 34 minutes and change. I hope I can do a bit better this time around, not that that was a bad time at all. I have been in training for this and the APFT (which ... Read more

What an interesting storm of thoughts flooded through my brain tonight while on the treadmill, actually it was more in my summary post for my Couch to 5K training program I am doing to my Facebook account. Today I saw a friend who I'd not s... Read more

A lot of stuff has happened since my last blog entry... oh yeah, tons. I have overall been doing great with eating and exercise, I'm holding my own and feeling really great, especially since I have been able to get better control and feel l... Read more

I never used to think I was an emotional eater, tonight I just proved myself so wrong. I have been feeling distinctly blue the last few days... just not sure why. My eating over the weekend and tonight was fine and then I was just blow the cal... Read more

Good week last week... good to have goals again.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011      2 comments

I had a good week last week, good calorie burn for the week and even though I didn't meet my goals 100%, I felt good about what I did do. I also revised my own goals to allow myself a day off of both counting and exercise during the week. ... Read more

Goals are good for maintenaceville too.

Thursday, February 17, 2011      3 comments

MaintenanceVille can be sort of like being in a holding pattern over Pittsburgh... frustrating in some ways, because you always sort of feel like you are a little up and a little down without every really landing. You keep doing the right thing... Read more

Wednesday, January 12, 2011      2 comments

My best bud here just keeps me thinking... I kind of did a "3 years since I started this crazy ride" blog a couple of weeks ago. I am usually pretty thoughtful, but lately I have been very wrapped up in the minutiae of life... what I need to do... Read more

Reflections: 3 years since I decided to get healthy...

Tuesday, December 28, 2010      3 comments

It's been an interesting road in so many ways since I woke up on 30 December 2007 and decided that I was going to lose the excess weight I'd been carrying around for years. It took me 8 months to lose 60+ lbs, hitting goal on 2 September 2008. ... Read more

I am so pumped! I did intervals of 1 minute walking (3.5 mph) and 2 minutes running (5.5 mph) on the treadmill tonight. I did 10 intervals plus walking before and after. It felt amazing to be able to run and love it and NOT feel miserable. I... Read more
