I'm gonna do a 5K...

Monday, May 26, 2008      1 comments

A year ago I had nary a thought of participating in a 5K... this year I'm actively planning on it and it's not something that I planned at the beginning of this journey back in January. But I've gotten fit slowly and am now finding myself rou... Read more

I walked 7 miles yesterday?!

Saturday, May 24, 2008      0 comments

I really did, I'm very excited about it. I ran/walked 3 miles at lunch and then another 4 after work. I ran almost a mile at lunch and two full half miles after work. My endurance is continually increasing, I can't wait until I can sustain a ... Read more

Better day...

I worked all day as our "nutritionist on television" during WIC clinic. It was very busy which helped the day pass with reasonable speed. I have had 3 very challenging days trying to fit everything in... I still managed 3 miles each day...... Read more

Grumpy evening after pretty good day.

I got run off the road when trying to enter the interstate on the way home from work... by a semi that COULD HAVE moved over... this is something that pisses me off! If they can't move over, no harm no foul... but if they can and don't... I ge... Read more

Some favorite tools... and a challenging food day...

Tuesday, May 20, 2008      1 comments

I was in a training all day and they fed us, which can be a real mixed bag. The snacks were fine: fruit, granola, yogurt... and plenty of water to drink. Lunch was almost my perfect food nightmare... the only thing that would have been wor... Read more

Day 39 and I have left the 170s!!

Monday, May 19, 2008      3 comments

Today is a good day! I have managed to exercise for 39 days in a row. And today I broke the 170 barrier, but 0.2 lbs, but I claim my 169.8 pounds since I know I have earned it. I had another magnificent salad at lunchtime that has left me... Read more

You'd think I'd burn out on salads!!

Saturday, May 17, 2008      1 comments

I eat a salad nearly everyday. Even last night, I had a taco salad with fat free refried beans and cheese salsa as dressing. I love what you can do with a salad and how much goodness you can pack into one. They are so versatile. I genera... Read more

A couple more days...

Without exercise this week I would be crazy, and trying to fit it all in yesterday and today is crazy too... Miss M (my 16 yo daughter) has dropped bombshell after bombshell on us since Sunday. First there was the sneaking in at 4:00 am wi... Read more

First plateau... wah!

Tuesday, May 13, 2008      1 comments

I weighed in yesterday and hadn't lost from the previous week. So I remain 172.4. I've been so lucky so far, this is like "harumph". But I have to look at the success, amazing really, that I have had. Additionally, I have to look a... Read more

Achievements...

Sunday, May 11, 2008      0 comments

I am feeling so amazing lately... and can tell in so many ways how good this whole change has been for me. Things just don't stress me out in the same way that they used to. I have become downright mellow. My daughter stayed out too late ... Read more

30 days straight of exercise!!!

Saturday, May 10, 2008      3 comments

I have achieved this goal. Yesterday was 29/6 and today is 30/7! I have completed every Bootcamp challenge thus far, including all bonuses. I walked/jogged this morning for 42 mins... 8.5 mins jogging. I just keep trying to bump th... Read more

A new day...

Friday, May 09, 2008      0 comments

Yesterday was day 28/5. I can't believe that I've actually exercised 28 days straight. I've managed to do all the Bootcamp challenges too. The challenges are a real motivation. My husband joined yesterday too. He's aravine. He's very c... Read more

I did walk 3 miles on the treadmill this evening after getting home at nearly 8:30. Phew. Bootcamp Day #4 also completed. Today is also day 27 of consecutive exercise. Phew. ----------------------------

Day 26 in a row and BBB day 3...

Tuesday, May 06, 2008      0 comments

Today was a challenge since I was in a training on my butt all day. And we had no fruit in the house for me to take... so I took carrots and some Kashi crackers, but those were gone by lunch. I managed to chew gum and drink water all afternoon... Read more

You know, if I'm lacking motivation around here, it's my own darned fault! I'm doing the Beach Body Bootcamp and that had a relatively simple 10 minute workout (but very good! it got me pumped when I was feeling sleepy this morning). I al... Read more
