Busy Week

Friday, October 08, 2010      1 comments

Ran Buddy Walk 5K for Down Syndrome families last Saturday. Actually it was 3.26 miles. I don't know who maps these things but this one was too long and hilly. Anyway, I did okay I guess. Had to walk some toward the end. I wish I could get thr... Read more

Don't get trampled!

Thursday, September 23, 2010      1 comments

I ran my first race since the spring on Saturday. The first time I've run outdoors in a while. I've gotten a little too attached to the treadmill and I'm not ashamed to admit it. It's sitting there in the air conditioned gym with my fan, my w... Read more

Breaking through

I'm actually seeing a little progress. I'm down a pound or two. My running is going better than expected. I'm CAUTIOUSLY optimistic. My goal for the long holiday weekend is to track my calories daily and to exercise at least once but preferably... Read more

Kick in the Rear

Tuesday, August 10, 2010      1 comments

I haven't been to the gym in a week! What has gotten into me??? Ok, oral surgery and 3 kids starting school but that shouldn't have accounted for A WEEK off. I have a race in a month and I think the last time I ran nearly killed me. Or I THOUG... Read more

Softball mania

Tuesday, July 13, 2010      1 comments

My priority has not been myself the past few days. If the weekend of the 4th was a 'not perfect' weekend, this past one was 'really crappy'. My youngest child has played in a state softball tournament and I've eaten whatever was available at t... Read more

Holiday Weekend

Tuesday, July 06, 2010      0 comments

Weeellll, I didn't have the 'perfect' weekend but I was very mindful of what I put in my mouth. I did have some homemade ice cream and it was DIVINE. Also brought watermelon so there would be something healthy too. It was good but had very tiny ... Read more

I reset everything on Spark. I mean at some point in time, can you really say you've lost 20 lbs when it's been 18 months and 8 of it you've gained and lost again? Unfortunately when I reset I added back my weightfrom the first of the week prior... Read more

Get your run on

Wednesday, June 30, 2010      3 comments

I'm a runner...a very slow runner who sometimes walks. I'm either hot or cold. I have to have something to work toward or I won't go to the gym. I normally look for 5Ks in my area that I think I might want to do (not too hilly, not too far away... Read more

Rejoined WW

Monday, April 12, 2010      0 comments

I joined an At Work Group at our Main Office. I've always been successful at Weight Watchers just resistant I guess because I don't understand why I can't do it on my own. I'm a grown up. I'm very disciplined in all areas of my life it seems..... Read more

Competition is over but I've just begun!

Monday, July 06, 2009      0 comments

The 'Biggest Loser' competition at work is officially over. I finished a respectable #8 out of 26. I could have done better but I'm quite proud of myself. I've lost 18 lbs that I would not have if I hadn't started this journey in January and ... Read more

I'm still on track

Monday, May 04, 2009      0 comments

I've not made great gains in the past month but I'm still working. I gained a couple of pounds and it's been slow getting it back off. I'm still working. I've been very busy and had a hard time putting myself back on my priority list but I fo... Read more

Good Weigh Day

Wow, I lost 2.6 pounds this week. What a relief! That's 17.6 total. I know I've got a lot more to lose but that's really close to 20 lbs. All of a sudden I feel like i'm making progress. Whoa, girl, slow down.... Don't get ahead of yourself ... Read more

Been a while

Friday, April 03, 2009      0 comments

It's been three weeks since my last entry and not a huge amount of progress made but I'm in for the long haul. I've been slacking in the workouts. I've been sick. I've got lots of excuses. Can you tell? I AM proud of the fact that food... Read more

I know I shouldn't let the scales rule my mood.

Monday, March 09, 2009      2 comments

Last week I was SO bummed! SO aggravated! It's so silly that one pound can dictate how I choose to feel about the progress I made. I KNOW all that. It's even more apparent this week when I'm down 4.2 pounds. I've beat myself up for 7 days ove... Read more

I GAINED. I don't know how but I gained 1 pound. I wish I'd done something to actually enjoy it. I wish I'd eaten something sinfully good. I'm trying not to beat myself up and rethink everything I did this past week. For some reason, my bod... Read more
