Sunday, June 08, 2008      0 comments

I've read here on SP and other places that music can really boost your workout. I used a Podfitness track yesterday and my own music mix today and I could tell the difference it made... it was HUGE. The song that really sparked me to run a... Read more

Twice I've accidentally hit the enter button with the heel of my hand. OOPS! Yesterday was a disjointed sort of day. We were supposed to have a training, but we couldn't get the satellite working, much to our disappointment. Apparently, ... Read more

A new month...

Sunday, June 01, 2008      0 comments

I have reset my exercise minute goal to 2000 for the month, which is 66.6 per day. (heh) The breakdown was accidental. But that's okay. I apparently ate okay yesterday... I had sushi, miso soup & salad for lunch. Salad for dinner with a... Read more

A good start to the day...

I have achieved a new milestone today! I have gotten to 51 consecutive days of exercise! I kind of pooped out on the Swimsuit Bootcamp on the last 3 days... I just had such a crazed day at work, that I had no time to exercise at all. I ... Read more

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?!

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

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
