And the results are in....
I'm down 2.4 pounds! WOOT! Now, they are 'recycled' pounds...I gained 5.8 in the month of December. But hey, I got half of it back off. And tomorrow is the start of my new week and my goal is 2.5 to 3 pounds by NEXT Tuesday. I think...no...... Read more
“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.” ~Doug
What a TITLE! But I love that quote. And i find it so true. NOTHING smells like bacon. And I thought it was a good quote for my weekend post. I have not gotten enough vegetables. I normally don't. See? I'm being honest. i HATE veggies. ... Read more
a GOAL without a PLAN is just a WISH
Isn't that the truth? People tend to think that weight loss just happens (kinda like a well behaved kid). That they can say, "Oh, I want to lose weight" and BOOM.....they are skinny. It's a lot of hard work. I'm not on a diet, I'm changing m... Read more
Everybody throws Rocks at things the Shine
I know, random titles. I am feeling SO good today. I did Week 1, Day 2 of C25K this afternoon AND I had to add to my route so that I wouldn't be home BEFORE the end of workout! I didn't have to add alot, about half of the last side street in ... Read more
Riddles You Speak Part 2....
Ok, so I just really like that phrase. So today I feel like I'm getting back on track with weight loss. I rode the stationary bike for 30 minutes. Mostly on resistance 3, but 5 minute warm up and 5 minute cool down on #2. But since i just go... Read more
Riddles you Speak
Or something like that. It's only 3 days into 2012 and I already feel lost and confused. About my whole LIFE! I sat down to write my New Year's Resolutions and it dawned on me...I'm no better off than this time 2011. I feel like I'm stalled ... Read more
When I'm feeling blue, I start breathing again
I read that in a book yesterday and laughed out loud. I just thought it was too funny, and sometimes, so true. We spend so much time looking at all the bad things going on in our lives, and lives of others, that it's no wonder we feel "blue" o... Read more
And I am. Spring has sprung and I'm lovin' it! As a family, we have been out and about everyday. Biking, walking, playing....it's BEEN so much fun. A bonus is that my son has really gotten the concept of riding a bike. He can ride his bike ... Read more
So yesterday, my husband and I got ourselves some bikes. We've been wanting to get into biking for sometime now. We are planning to start camping this spring, and thought having bikes would be a good thing to had. So today was my first time o... Read more
My SIL told me the other day "You don't need to slash the other three tires because one has a flat".
In other words, yes, you may have had a rough week and have 'fallen off the bandwagon' but that's no reason to give up. Just recommit to t... Read more
Change of plans
Well, C25K had to be put on hold. It got so cold around here, that I couldn't take my son out in the morning (the best time for me personally to run). So that's gonna have to be revisited next month.
I am hoping to be able and do some wal... Read more
C25K: Week 1 Day 3
My first week has been completed! I'm so happy. I had to do Day 1 twice, because I couldn't make it the first time. I've had to pause the program every day from about 3 minutes halfway through to really catch my breath. And today, Day 3, is ... Read more
I know it's been a long time...
but I'm really ready to give it ago again. Today (28 Dec 2010) I started the couch 2 5k program. I was able to go about half way through the program before having to walk home. But I had my head held high. It was more than I excepted, so I f... Read more
Fell off the bandwagon....can I get back on?
Has it really been 2 months since I did a blog post? WOW....time flies. As for me, I haven't done a lot of anything. I've held steady, but I'm not very please with that. This morning I wrote down my goals for the rest of the year. And the m... Read more
7:30 AM is too late....
to be out walking....it's too dang hot! My husband leaves the house a few minutes before 7 so if I get up at 6 then I can get out and walk and back before he leaves....instead of getting my son up that early. So tomorrow...we'll see if I can r... Read more
