Day 2 - Summer exercise regime
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      1 comments

I started running yesterday for the first time in 2 years. Survived, but I think I've developed plantar fasciitis from wearing the wrong kind of shoes at work the last few months. I bought new running shoes ($$) and I'll go pick up some insole... Read more
Has it really been a year?
Saturday, January 05, 2013      3 comments

Unbelieveably, I've gained more weight! I'm nearly 200-lbs, which at 5'0 is seriously serious. I bought the family an xBox for Christmas, and Biggest Loser, Your Shape Evovled, and Dance Central 2. So far I've exercised with it 3 times this w... Read more
The 'Great' Frozen North
Thursday, December 29, 2011      0 comments

I've been here in the north for 4 months now. My jogging program ended the day we moved. I had to go straight to work a few days after the kids and I moved and there has been no time to breathe let alone exercise. My day starts at 5:30 am mak... Read more
A plateau already?
Saturday, August 13, 2011      0 comments

Only 3 weeks in and I'm at a plateau it seems. I'm exercising (walk/jogging) 70 minutes 6 days a week, 7km. Eating between 1400-1500 cals per day, I had one bad day where I ate about 1700. But my body has decided it's not going to cooperate. ... Read more
Eat more to lose more?
Wednesday, August 10, 2011      1 comments

I'm still at 174. Hoping I can lose another 5-10-lbs before the school year starts in 2 weeks. I hope my habits are starting to become routine. It suck with the move that my routines will have to change a lot. Not sure I'm ready for that yet... Read more
Staying on track, mostly
Monday, August 08, 2011      2 comments

I feel like I've been badly deviating from my workout and meal plans, but I haven't so I don't know what that is all about. Fear I guess, that I won't lose this weight. I'm had a few little 'cheats' here and there. 2 squares of dark chocolate... Read more
I need to get out of the house!
Saturday, August 06, 2011      2 comments

I need to get out of the house but I can't think of a thing I want to do. Go for a walk? It might be the best I can do. Did my walk/jog this morning and it was brutal. Barely made it through (2m30sec jogging followed by 2m30sec of wal... Read more

I've been trying to avoid it, but I can't anymore. I'm out of produce so I must go shopping. emoticon I'm m... Read more
Another pretty lame day
Wednesday, August 03, 2011      1 comments

Did my 70 minutes of walk/jogging then did nothing else at all, all day. A little bit of strength training, nothing worth writing down. I need to get motivated. Hard to get myself out of the house when I have no money and really there is noth... Read more
Another grey summer day
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      0 comments

It was sunny, for about 2 hrs this afternoon, now it's back to cool and cloudy. Today was a struggle. Cooking and preparing my meals took so long. There has got to be a better way. I'm struggling to get all my calories in. Today I allowed m... Read more
Calorie skimming
Monday, August 01, 2011      0 comments

So I'm eating my brunch as I type this. I made an eggwhites+1 egg veggie omelette that is so huge it's like a mountain on my plate. I missed breakfast because of my walk/jog so I'm combining my lunch/breakfast calories and I guess I'll graze o... Read more
Hope next week goes as well as this week
Sunday, July 31, 2011      0 comments

I'm down 8-lbs this week just by exercising (walk/easy jogging) 6.5 km a day, eating very pure/clean foods (1200-1300 cals) and getting back on my thyroid meds. If I can keep this up then I should be able to fit in to my 'fat' work clothes for ... Read more
Feeling guilty
Saturday, July 30, 2011      0 comments

Like actually really guilty. My guilt button has been hidden for a while and I'm kind of glad that it's come back. Without it I've been able to indulge in a lot of things that were bad for me, so maybe this signals a turning point? I feel gui... Read more
Summer came and went
Saturday, July 30, 2011      1 comments

Still having weird weather here. Yesterday it was pretty nice, about 23C (a little too hot for me, but I'm weird). Today, by most people's standards, it's gone back to cool, cloudy, bad summer weather. To me it's perfect! I can get out for a... Read more
