10 days of maintenance... and a new swimsuit...

Friday, September 12, 2008      1 comments

This isn't going to be a terribly long post. Just a quickie to show off the bod and suit. I've been maintaining for 10 days now. I tell you, it's easy to kind of fall off the exercise wagon. I haven't stopped or even missed a day, but ... Read more

42... finding the meaning of life, the universe and everything...

Tuesday, September 09, 2008      1 comments

If you know the book, "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", then you know that the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything is 42. This is kind of (humorously) significant for me since I turned 42 last October... and I have ... Read more

I ran an incredible 2.44 miles (25 mins) straight yesterday at almost 6 mph and that included some pretty challenging hills... not steep, but those long, slow grades that take endurance to get up. The one going into the golf course is shorter a... Read more

I just want to thank everyone for the support I have received in the last few months with this whole weight loss thing. It really has meant a great deal to me. I feel incredibly blessed and loved. Maintenance is going to be a journey unto... Read more

148.8 this morning!!!!!!!!!! 150 was my goal and I certainly didn't expect to hit it on the nose. I just want to go outside and yell, "GGGGOOOOAAAALLLL!!!!!!!!!" I ran(mostly) a really hard treadmill workout for 45 minutes last night ... Read more

Things are going pretty good. I can't complain too much really. I am pretty confident that I will meet my goal weight when I weigh in on Tuesday. I'm delayed a day since I am off for Labor Day. I was 148 on our home scale this morning... an... Read more

So much to blog... so little time...

I did manage to get up yesterday morning to run a mile on treadmill with .25 mile warm up and a .25 mile cool down. I had a great day. This morning, I looked at the clock at 5:30, when my eyes opened again, it was 5:45 and then again at 6:... Read more

Today deserves an entry...

Just because of my failed success of a recipe... Somehow this morning I ended up on YouTube looking a a clip from a German cooking website (I really don't know quite how)... the lady was making a tasty-looking pastry with a Quark & vanilla ... Read more

133 days straight... streak ends... needed a night off...

Friday, August 22, 2008      1 comments

This has been a hard week for keeping up the exercise... just feeling a bit of burnout I guess. I've also been pretty tired all week. I have gone 133 days straight... I've proven a lot to myself. 133 days has meant to me: --I can stay c... Read more

Whining... it's a tough week for motivation and time...

Thursday, August 21, 2008      3 comments

This is the most awake I have felt all week. I haven't exercised nearly as much as I would have liked and I have been just exhausted. Part of it has been staying up to watch the Olympics (bad choice) and part of it is simply not having enough ... Read more

Today's weigh-in...

I feel really blessed since I have barely plateaued in the entire course of my weight loss. It's almost like my body has been waiting for me to get a clue and just DO IT. Come to think of it, my mother was NEVER overweight... she was 5-2 and t... Read more

Actually got myself up and got my car in for the long-scheduled maintenance... and I walked to the Farmer's Market from the dealership... it's only a few blocks... but on a morning like we have today, it could have been a couple of miles and I'd... Read more
