a simple soup recipe
I will do this again! As my husband says about most of my kitchen creations, "This is a repeat!"
This morning, I put a whole chicken in the crockpot and sprinkled it with a package of dry Italian dressing mix. Tonight, I threw some some f... Read more
an nasty March, but I'm back in action.
March has been a rotten month. There was a death in the family and yesterday I had to have my 15-year-old cat put to sleep.
Somehow all the stress hasn't showed on the scale, so I am thankful for that.
I'm back on track. I usuall... Read more
Week 8, Day 1 of Couch to 5k...pooo!
Pooo! I had to walk for one minute in the middle of this 25-minute run. I had a pain in my side that just wouldn't stop. Walking for just one minute made it go away. So, I guess I had two 12-minute runs...I will try again on Wednesday. Mayb... Read more
Fun Weekend and a not much of a gain
I had a blast this weekend! A friend and I went to see The Who in concert in a nearby city. They still put on an AWESOME show:) The Who is always a great band, but I fell head over heels in love with the opening act, Vintage Trouble. Here's... Read more
update on running
I haven't had a lot of time to blog lately, so I thought I would do a short update tonight. The Couch to 5k program is going great! I will finish week 7 on Friday night. I thought I had 2 more weeks to go, but it's just one! Tonight's 20-min... Read more
C25K, Confidence and Amazement
I can't believe what I just did....I finished Week 5 of the C25K program! It was an 8-minute jog, 2-minute walk, and then a 10-minute jog. All day I kept thinking, "I don't know if I can do it...what if I fail? I'll have to repeat a week..." ... Read more
running, water, and healthy eating
As I'm progressing through the weeks in the Couch to 5K program, I've found that drinking lots of water (I try for 8 8-ounce glasses a day) and eating good healthy food really does make the running easier. I think that's the reason I failed the... Read more
C25K Week 4 DONE!
I did it! I'm halfway through the Couch to 5K program! (that's what the iPhone app tells me, anyway) I did look at the clock counting down during the run portions, quite a few times, I admit....but I finished!
I still don't know what t... Read more
Nervous about tomorrow's C25K fun.
Yes, I'm a little nervous about the run tomorrow. It requires a 6-minute run. About a year ago, I actually ran a whole mile at once....it took me over 14 minutes, but I did it. So...I know I can do it again. Just a little nervous.
I'l... Read more
W4D1 of C25K
I just finished Week 4, Day 1 on the Couch to 5K program. Not too bad....the 5-minute run was a little difficult, but I did it.
Thanks for all the recommendations on TV shows (see my previous blog)! I went with "How I Met Your Mother". ... Read more
I don't watch a lot of current TV...I usually watch TV shows later thru netflix DVDs and streaming. Due to poor planning, I don't have a movie to watch while I do my Couch to 5K program on the treadmill. So, I'm going to move my Roku player to... Read more
C25k Week 3, Day 2
Things have been so busy lately. There just isn't enough time in the day to get things done. I did Week 3, Day 2 on the C25K program. It went really well. The jogging portions are 2-minute and 3-minute jogs. Next week bumps up to 4- and 5-m... Read more
Do it like you mean it!
"Do it like you mean it!" That's what the fitness coach said on the piltaes DVD I was doing a few minutes ago. Do it like you mean it....that's something to remember. Why do it any other way? Don't do it half-way or half-heartedly. Do it, a... Read more
I finished Week 2, Day 2 of the Couch to 5k program....a little bit of pain in my shins, but nothing I can't handle. The cooldown started just as the credits started rolling (I treadmill in front of a TV with DVD player, is that cheating? lol)... Read more
