I have been having quite the battle with evening snacking for weeks. My weight hasn't gone up more than a couple of pounds... but the upward weight creep is there. So last week I really got myself off to a good start and I was battling the sna... Read more
Just that extra step...
Sunday, January 22, 2012      5 comments

I guess one of my pet peeves of late is seeing people NOT going that extra step or people deciding that "item x" is S.E.P (somebody else's problem). Not so much where I work, but just in general. There is a guy who lives in my building w... Read more
Wow! Really?!

I don't have a great deal of time to write this, but I just had to! It seems everyone in my unit is trying to lose weight and they are all staying away from the evil CARBS! (Do you hear the ominous music building in the background?) I... Read more

I had a great run at the park today... except for a group of punk teenagers who were hogging the sidewalk... I ran around them and they started laughing at me. I have no clue why since I was minding my own business. I lapped them and then they... Read more
Great start so far!

Rather than a resolution, I have a goal for the year... establish that pesky morning exercise habit! Since I was off on 1 & 2 January, I didn't start on those days, but I did start this morning with a 15 minute yoga session with My Fitness Coac... Read more
Holiday overeating... but new start today...
Monday, December 26, 2011      4 comments

I have badly overindulged the past few days and have hardly gotten any exercise, but part of that is due to lack of facilities and an abundance of sweets and lack of willpower. The weather here has been awful for exercise and I don't have acces... Read more

Well, I have almost finished the first 2 weeks of my deployment. It's been a very busy and tiring 2 weeks, to say the least. Everyday seems to be a challenge in some way or another. Last week was inprocessing the base... basically getting che... Read more

Last night I went out for the first run I have had since my back said Ouch... and it went fine. I only ran intervals since I figured a full out run of 2 miles wasn't the best idea. I managed to do 7 of my planned 10 3/10 mile intervals and I'm... Read more
Rebuilding after the back said, "OUCH!"

I had such a great triumph with my great 2 mile run a couple of weeks ago, it was a blow to my ego and my exercise mojo to have my shoulders hurting and then to have my back seize up and nearly go out. It was the usual place, the right hip... m... Read more

I think I was borderline sick most of the week. I had no motivation to work out at all and I just wasn't thinking about my eating that much... not the Idonwannas or the terheckwiddits, just not mentally together enough for my brain, body & spiri... Read more

It's been kind of a crazy month, but overall I have been doing much better with my eating and exercise. I know that one thing I definitely enjoy about the Army is the culture of fitness that has to be maintained. Going to the gym is part of yo... Read more

I have had a rough few weeks staying on track with both exercise and eating... feeling like a failure while making steady progress to longer running intervals... so yeah, some failure! I have been kind of down due to tight money, the impe... Read more

End of last week, with the sudden heat, I kind of laid off exercise for a couple of days. I felt indolent and lazy. Saturday, my best friend Renee and I went to the World Sheep Festival in Bethel, Missouri for the first half of the day a... Read more

Today marks 3 years since I stepped on the scale and found myself over a pound under my goal of 150. I remember that moment, I nearly collapsed! 8 solid months of hard work had paid off with steady weight loss. I cried and was amazingly happy,... Read more
