Mother's Day food lesson!
Yesterday was Mother's Day, which fell on day 15 of my raw fruit/veg (mostly juiced) fast. Bummer! I have been doing great on my fast and I feel wonderful! So, I was worried about how to handle the day of festivities.I decided that I would not f... Read more
I am back!
I can't believe how crazy life got! I allowed the busyness of my life to completely derail my efforts to get healthy! This was very frustrating, but I am back! I decided to reboot my health, attitude toward food, and cleanse my body. I am curren... Read more
Quickfire Challenge Team!
Today, I joined the Quickfire Challenge Team! I think this will be a great addition to my workouts. I love the idea of doing something throughout the day in little 'Quickfire' bursts. I also like that I don't have to come up with these ideas on ... Read more
Non-scale Victory: a hike!
This weekend my family went on a hike! This is something we used to do but haven't for a long time. We have had little kids and it just isn't as fun to carry little ones (we had 3 under 5yo) or go REALLY SLOW!!! Now the kids are old enough to w... Read more
Non-scale Victory: stairs!
I had a really great non-scale victory last night!
I have been really struggling with my food and I have gained a couple of pounds, which is frustrating. I know that I am in this for the long haul, so learning to deal with stress in a way... Read more
This isn't a race~we're just training for one!
So, I have made the decision to change C25K training programs. I have given this a lot of thought and it seems like the right thing to do! The one we have been using isn't an interval program, for the most part, and the one we are switching to i... Read more
Finding the time...
I have decided that it hard to find the time for my daughter and I to go together to do our C25K program. It would be so much easier, as far as time goes, to do this alone. However, I am so glad to have a running partner to help keep me accounta... Read more
1/2 Mile of Therapy!
Today I was having a really crappy day. In the past I would have gotten something at a drive thru, turned up the music and driven through the county. However, that is the old me! Today, I put on my running shoes and headed to the track where I r... Read more
C25K Week 3 Workout 2!!!
Ok, I will be honest, I was really scared of this workout! I am not sure why, but I was worried. Yesterday I decided to go for it and left my house somewhat impulsively to run and forgot my inhaler! I was only able to complete half my workout, w... Read more
What? I look like what?
I hate it when things from my past pop up and try to derail my day. Today, after I was able to complete only 1/2 my workout (I left my inhaler at home and had to stop to go get it), I was a little frustrated with myself for leaving it at home. T... Read more
Is that me?
Is that me? I was looking at the pictures I took as my before pictures. When I saw the one that is a close up of my face, I just can't believe it. I don't see myself as looking like this. I think, even when I look in the mirror, that I look diff... Read more
So, I think I have decided to redo my measurements after I get below 220lbs, that will mean a 12lb weight loss. I decided to wait until then because I want to see a change and not get discouraged. Although, I already feel like my clothes are sta... Read more
This afternoon I completed week 2 day 1 of my C25K! I am very proud of myself! The first day I started this, I thought I might just die! That was running only two minutes! Today, one week later I doubled that amount of running time! I am really ... Read more
Food Tracking Lessons!
What has this week of food tracking taught me? I have learned that on my own I eat WAAAYYY more calories than I should to lose weight. I learned that in order to get healthy, I need to rethink my eating (I really didn't realize how bad it was!) ... Read more
Food Sabotage and the C25K!
As soon as I decided to track my food, I have made the worst food choices! I did the 3rd workout for the C25K today, and as I was running I realized that I have been sabotaging myself with food this week. I am not sure what is going on exactly, ... Read more
