Progress so far

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      2 comments

I've come a long way from my January goals. I feel the need to check in on them, after nearly 4 months. 1. Marathon running: I've sustained my first significant injury (to me at least), and I'm coming out the other side now. I'm not back to... Read more

Motivations

Saturday, January 15, 2011      2 comments

A friend wrote about her motivations in wanting weight loss. I think honesty in this allows better focus. It's OKAY to say that I want to look attractive. So here are my most recent motivations for a healthier lifestyle: 1. I want to run a ... Read more

Here we go again

Thursday, December 30, 2010      1 comments

I feel like a broken record, but I usually don't post when things are going well. After the half marathon in October, I stopped working out as religiously. My nutrition barely held together until mid-December, and then it went downhill. I find m... Read more

Injured? Again?

Monday, August 23, 2010      1 comments

I went running yesterday at Masterson Station while in Lexington. The ground was really uneven. It was really hot. I pushed myself hard. I only made it two miles before I had to stop. The worst part is that I strained my calf. I'm pretty sure it... Read more

A new goal

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      2 comments

My workouts in 50 days count was 28. That didn't sound great until I calculated out that's about 4/7 days per week. Then it sounded pretty good. I randomly ended up next to my favorite running store last night. As I was looking at the cute ... Read more

A new challenge

Monday, June 28, 2010      1 comments

I've had a hard time with getting back into good workout habits. Some of you may recall the 50 runs in 50 days challenge from Jan-Feb 2009. I've started a 50 workouts in 50 days challenge. I decided running alone is too narrow a definition of ac... Read more

Positive self-talk

Monday, October 26, 2009      2 comments

I'm not always good about this. When my clothes don't fit, I don't feel great about myself. Yesterday I went out with my running group, and we did quite the off-roading. There was a moment when I looked up at a huge incline in front of me. I pac... Read more

Boo pants!

Thursday, October 22, 2009      0 comments

We had an activity at work yesterday that involved having us video-taped while speaking to evaluate our speaking skills. While I was pleased that I looked better than I thought in general, the pants made me want to cry. I looked so sloppy! ... Read more

Hiatus needed.

Work is getting crazy. Be back in June. Please just don't let me gain weight!... Read more

New Goals

Monday, April 27, 2009      1 comments

I made it through the wedding week! I ate basically everything I wanted, and held back when it wasn't important. I ate ice cream every day. And I gained one pound total the whole vacation. Not bad! I re-evaluated my goals today. I clearly ... Read more

The nightmare is over

Saturday, April 04, 2009      1 comments

It all started with, I think, a small case of food poisoning. Skip the details you don't want to hear, and then Thursday morning I felt too nervous to drink my usual coffee. I'd been meaning to detox a little lately anyway, so I went without for... Read more

My bragging list

Thursday, March 26, 2009      0 comments

1. I'm back to almost daily running. 2. I've been doing well with packing food this week. 3. Home improvement is such good exercise!... Read more

My good list!

Friday, March 20, 2009      1 comments

1. I managed to stay out of the Keebler elves and the M&Ms at work (the girl scout cookies finally got me). 2. I ran 5 miles tonight, and in 53 minutes!... Read more

Things I did well today

Tuesday, March 17, 2009      0 comments

Rather than make this a simple list, I will expand a little. I went running with my running group. It was an impromptu st patty's day deal. We just decided earlier today. I suppose I want running to be that way: very social, and not the obl... Read more

1. Dealt ok with sudden lack of breakfast food available. 2. Got up and ran before work! 3. Went to a thai restaurant and avoided the coconut milk dishes.... Read more
