Some days struggle more than other days

Monday, May 11, 2009      1 comments

Yesterday was a run day for me, ~3 miles. It was a struggle to say the least. I don't know if it was my route, or the humidity, or lack of hyrdation, or eating the wrong things before I ran. It could have been a combo of a lot of things. I c... Read more

It's either shape up or be grounded missy!

I think I'll use a little parental "guidance" on myself since I've been slacking since we got home from SoCal. Tonight I have a good excuse, we have plans to do winter coat shopping tonight but tomorrow? Game on! It's time to get with pro... Read more

Houston. We have a problem.

Saturday, September 13, 2008      2 comments

September started out strong, and then it fizzled. Not really for lack of desire to eat right and go to the gym but rather a stressful week at work = several sleepless nights = poor eating habits = very little H20 = 3 missed opportunities to go... Read more

Day 26 - Data doesn't lie

Tuesday, August 26, 2008      0 comments

I'm near the end of Auspicious August, the month of promise and determination to achieve my goals, so I did what every good high tech, geeky employee would do, I looked at the data I've been collecting. I've been to the gym or did some form... Read more

Days 19 - 21 Raising the Bar

Friday, August 22, 2008      1 comments

Tuesday and Wednesdays were not good days for staying on track. I had late evening meetings: international teleconferences both nights. I tried to be mindful of my eating but that suffered -- very little veggies. I made as healthy choices as ... Read more

Oopsie, forgot to post my daily blog from yesterday. Day 1 of recovery from over indulging food and no exercise + hours of sitting on my behind. I watched what I ate very carefully yesterday, making sure there was not anything extra ... Read more

Days 16 and 17 - Tomorrow is a new day

Sunday, August 17, 2008      0 comments

I blew it, and my body knows it and it's not forgiving me and not letting me forget it. Yesterday was my grandmother's 88th birthday, and we drove 3 1/2 hours to her birthday party (in 100+ degree heat...thank goodness for air conditioning). ... Read more

Saturday, August 16, 2008      0 comments

Today my husband called to say he drove by a sign in Aloha that said it was 114 degrees. He said he thought that was probably not correct but it was likely over 100. According to KPTV, it's still in the 80s. We went to the pool this eveni... Read more

Friday, August 15, 2008      2 comments

Tonight I had an awesome (and cool) workout. I spent 20 minutes on the elliptical, and then went into the lap pool at the gym. I wore my HRM, and guess what? It didn't break. Woohoo! I swam laps for 50 minutes, and I'm super tired tonight. ... Read more
