Running.... without a plan

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      3 comments

How do people train to run? How does that differ from those who run to change body composition? Can the 2 be meshed? As I've talked about, I've just started running. About 10 days after I first ran I decided to run a 5K in a week. My ... Read more

There's No Medal for Being a Food Martyr

I splurged yesterday and I'm not ashamed of it. I don't feel like a failure. I went right back to healthy habits today. Seems some think that that's just not possible. For me it is part of a balanced life. My big splurge was partaking... Read more

And I said I'd never run....

Finished my first official 5K in 28:49. My goal was 34. I hoped for 30. I got 28:49. Very, very, very happy. Read more

Love my lower body workout

Friday, May 11, 2012      2 comments

This month I am strength training 3x a week. I have 2 whole body workouts that I do Monday and Wednesday and I end the week with a lower body workout. All three workouts were designed by my trainer. Monday's is 'ok', except for the weighted si... Read more

5K in 34:00

Last pre-race treadmill run in. Did a full 5K (3.11mi) in exactly 34 minutes. Intervals of walking 4-4.5MPH and running 6.5-7MPH. I was a little behind Tuesday at the 3mi mark. Still not sure if I will run Saturday or walk/run. I'm leaning ... Read more

3mi in 32:23

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      1 comments

My goal for May is to run 5K in 30' or less. Today I did 3 miles in 32:23. That's another minute shaved off. I'm getting close enough that I'm going to do 3.11 mi for time now. That's REALLY 5K. 3 mi was 'close enough' but it's not anymore.... Read more

Ugh. My back.

Weighted side lunges did me in today. I was putting the weights all the way to the floor. Unfortunately, I think that I was rounding my back to do it. Lower back hurts now. I did make adjustments but too late to avoid pain today. Stupid move... Read more

Went to the park and ran/walked 4.7K in 27:15. That's with my son slowing me down in te first lap (1/3) before I left him behind in the second lap. That's on track for 29:00 for a 5K. Toss in some walking with the family at the end and I'll c... Read more

Happy Friday and Personal Training for a Tween

Friday, May 04, 2012      1 comments

Even after splurging on 2 pieces of ice cream cake in honor of my eldest's half birthday, I was only up 1/2 pound of the 2 that disappeared. I KNOW that's water (they were within my calorie budget for the day) and it was super yummy. I di... Read more

Well, look at that....

I stop beating myself up mentally and wake up 2 pounds lighter. A weight off my shoulders because I decided to be good to myself? Relaxing and letting my body do it's thing instead of stressing? Who knows! And I'm bound to mess it up a bit w... Read more

Stopping the Punishment

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      2 comments

I gave up ice cream for Lent. After Lent was over my weight was right at goal (up a few pounds from where I had comfortably sat for months pre-Lent) and I was mad at myself. So... I made a rule, no ice cream for me unless I was under that pre-... Read more

Going in the wrong direction?

First numbers..... A 3 mi hike with the family on Sunday brings me to 8.25mi in 1 week. Weight is 126.4 (I think... whatever it is it's slightly over goal.) Body fat is just over 20% Where I'm at ..... Just over goal and body f... Read more

Numbers, numbers, numbers

Saturday, April 28, 2012      2 comments

Since I love numbers so much, I guess I'll track my miles run. I don't have a pedometer or smartphone so I guess if I'm off the treadmill I'll be doing my best to estimate. So far, I'm just running on the treadmill (well, doing intervals of wa... Read more

I have futzed around enough! May Goals

Friday, April 27, 2012      3 comments

I ended my Female Body Breakthrough workouts in February and, knowing I had an elbow injury and something up with my lower back, dialed back the intensity. Then my trainer decided to leave the gym so I started working pretty intensely with him ... Read more

Successful maintenance while cruising!

Sunday, April 22, 2012      1 comments

I did it! I went on a cruise (5 nights), enjoyed myself to the fullest, splurged as I saw fit.... and came home just 0.8 pound up. After one full day at home that was gone. After another another 1.2 was gone. I'm now at my lowest weight in a... Read more
