One Year Running Anniversary

Tuesday, October 04, 2011      1 comments

Sunday marked my one-year anniversary as a runner. October 2, 2010 I struggled through C25K wondering just when those running intervals would be over. October 2, 2011 I'm training for my second half marathon (and am, unfortunately, injured!). ... Read more

Couch to ... Half Marathon? Yep! (LONG and Pic Heavy)

Saturday, June 18, 2011      0 comments

If you take a look at my two previous blogs, you'll see that one is from October 2, 2010 and the other is from January 1, 2011. The blog from October 2 is entitled Week 1, Day 1 of C25K. That was the first day I had ever done any sort of run/w... Read more

New Year, New Hope 5K

Saturday, January 01, 2011      1 comments

I found out on Wednesday that there was a 5K being held today. I finished C25K on December 4, but couldn't do the run they had that day. I've been watching for one, but with my Christmas gain I wasn't sure this was the right one to start with.... Read more

Week 1, Day 1 of C25K

Saturday, October 02, 2010      0 comments

I decided to try the Couch to 5K program to see if I could do it. Today was Day 1 of Week 1. I mapped the route I took here on SP and I went 1.96 miles and burned 162 calories. That was actually in 22 minutes as I misjudged my ending spot so ... Read more

Had my Spark, but did I lose it again?

Tuesday, June 22, 2010      1 comments

Well, for two weeks I had my Spark back. I'm afraid I'm losing it again already. I managed to go from 122 two weeks ago to 119.2 last week. This week, I'm back to 120 even. Not a huge gain, but frustrating nonetheless. At least I ordered my... Read more

Hubby's on board

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      2 comments

My husband at one point said I was starving myself and gets tired of me talking about things related to food and weight. However, last night I told him flat out about my concerns and lack of willpower (or whatever it is that's going on). I tol... Read more

Rock Bottom of "Maintenance"

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      8 comments

I put maintenance in quotes because I'm not really maintaining anything but a steady increase in weight. Rock bottom weight-wise was July of 2007. I've said numerous times that, for me, losing was the easy part. For a time, maintenance wa... Read more

It Fits Again

Friday, May 14, 2010      4 comments

Today is the 16th anniversary of my first date with my husband. It was his senior prom in 1994. For reasons that remain unknown to me, I still have all three prom dresses I wore to all the proms we attended together (his senior and my junior a... Read more

Well, No Surprise Here

Tuesday, May 11, 2010      3 comments

Today is official weigh-in day and I'm up to 122.2, which is out of the 60+ pound weight loss range (59.6 now). I've been there many times when I do my daily checks (yes, I'm obsessed), but I've always recovered fairly well by Tuesday. Not sur... Read more

Minimizing the Damage Instead of Working Towards My Goal :(

Friday, May 07, 2010      1 comments

Today I managed to get out of my funk to do my legs/trunk strength training on the Bowflex followed by 30 minutes on Program 2 of my elliptical machine. Program 2 is harder than the other 30-minute programs because more of the program is at the... Read more

Trying to Stay Positive

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      0 comments

Last week was the first week in a really long time that I managed to do the Bowflex three times working all muscle groups and churning out a lot of revolutions on my elliptical 4 days of the week. Add to that the dancing I did while holding my ... Read more

This Isn't Weight Related

Wednesday, April 28, 2010      3 comments

My 18-month-old babbles nonstop, but has few words. Otherwise, she's perfectly normal. Or so I thought. I took her for her speech evaluation today and she has no delays that would qualify her for services, but she has multiple partial del... Read more

Adding to Points Allowance

Tuesday, April 27, 2010      5 comments

I blew one day last week, but otherwise logged Points and exercise to the best of my knowledge. I stayed the same this week ... but my Points are set to lose weight, not maintain. I'm at an astoundingly low 18 Points per day (dropped from 23 w... Read more

When Will I Be Satisfied?

Sunday, April 18, 2010      6 comments

Before I lost weight, I constantly compared myself to heavy women asking myself, "Am I as big as her?" Then I rode the losing weight wave and sort of looked at people of all sizes and said to myself looking at fit people, "I can look like that,... Read more
