My parent were in town this weekend so I did not get a lot of exercising in. I did go to the gym on friday morning. Spent 45 minutes on the elliptical. I was drenched when I got off. I am amazed at how many people are there but are not sweating ... Read more

I made the decision to start up again doing the C25K. I have not run since May 2013 right before we bought a house and moved. I started back up on Saturday. My run pace was not bad. In fact, my run pace was faster (not by much) from when I start... Read more

Tuesday, February 03, 2015      0 comments

This past weekend was tough especially with Super Bowl Sunday. I only had one plate and no seconds with a ton of water. I tried to be good, but not as good as I had hope to be. So I am being extra careful this week. Today is my normal res... Read more

Measuring + HRM = Success

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      0 comments

I have been using a HRM since January 2nd and it has been helping me track the calories I burned. I like having the exact calorie burned. Measuring my food also helps out. I even measure my peanut butter I put on my sandwiches. Measuring has hel... Read more

This week has been flying by. I am so looking forward to the weekend. It is supposed to be nice. Maybe I will be able to get outside and do some work on the house or yard. It has been way to cold the last few days. I am ready for the 60 degree w... Read more

Monday, January 06, 2014      2 comments

I was doing soo good - eating healthier, losing the weight, running more and working toward that goal of running a 5K. All that went downhill when we bought a house and moved. I know it sounds like a silly excuse, but that is the truth. Moving m... Read more
