My second 10k
Sunday, April 07, 2013      3 comments

This is my second time in the Cooper River Bridge Run and I shaved 5 minutes off my time from last year. I know that may not be a big deal to some but I haven't really trained for this one like I did for last year. I also ran more this year, w... Read more
And happened
Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

I ran! I've been saying I can't get my breathing right (true) while running and the most I've been able to do was not much. About 15 min, sometimes .6 mile. Then last week I ran 2 entire miles without walking!! I know that is not a big deal ... Read more

Sunday, July 22, 2012      1 comments

I've had back pain for years. I would get an adjustment and I would feel better maybe for a day or two then back to hurting. I have now found out I have Deteriorating Disc Disease in my thoracic area, bone spurs and my C2 is rotated to the rig... Read more
Thoughts from today's 5k
Saturday, June 23, 2012      1 comments

My 2nd 5k today and sadly, I did not beat my PR. Time today: 36.08; that is walk/run. My PR from 2 months ago was 35.30. Not a huge difference but still wasn't an improvement. I still cannot get my breathing down but I keep trying. ... Read more
Thinking of adding something new to my workouts
Sunday, June 10, 2012      1 comments

I've been working out for 1.5 years now and I have found that I love it. Yes, there are days that I don't feel it and I may not work out. Then I feel like s**t the rest of the day for NOT working out. Now I want some change in my exercise... Read more
A year in review
Monday, May 14, 2012      0 comments

May 7, 2011 I was fed up enough with myself to dive into SP with honesty. That was the best thing I did. My goal was to lose 25 lbs. It has been one year since that time and I don't regret a thing. I did not lose 25 lbs but I HAVE... Read more
After the 5k
Monday, April 30, 2012      1 comments

I participated in a 5k Saturday and actually signed up as a runner. I am learning to run. I admit I am not very good at it.....yet. I am trying to build my endurance with breathing. It's not my legs that bother me, it is the breathin... Read more
5K dilemma....walk or run?
Thursday, April 12, 2012      2 comments

A 5k is coming up in 2 weeks and I plan to participate. My problem is I can't decide if I want to sign up as a walker or runner. I'm doing some running, about 10 minutes, walk for 5 minutes or so and trying to run again for another 10 mi... Read more

I completed my first 10k today after never having completed any type of race before. I was in the walk division and was hoping to finish in 90-95 minutes. I actually ran a little more than I thought I would be able to and finished in 1:23:01.... Read more
I'm becoming a statistic
Thursday, March 08, 2012      2 comments

*sigh* After doing so well and only 5lbs to my goal weight, I now have added 5 to that now I'm 10 to go. I KNOW I haven't been eating right so I don't have anyone else to blame and I'm not trying to. In the fall I was also gett... Read more
Still struggling
Sunday, February 26, 2012      1 comments

I continue, as I have for several months now, to get my eating under control again. I just don't know why I cannot resist the food anymore after I had been doing so well and I'm quite discouraged. I tell myself no but I do it anyway. I ... Read more
Plateau, Plateau, blah!
Monday, February 20, 2012      2 comments

I changed my starting weight and goal weight in December, giving myself more time to get to that goal. It was getting depressing seeing it sitting there, going no where, taunting me. Nah, nah, nah, nah, boo, boo!! Well, after 2 months, i... Read more

Ending the year feeling good!
Saturday, December 31, 2011      3 comments

For 2 months I have not done well with my eating. I still exercise daily and go to my total body fitness class but I've just been not "into" it. For the last week with the holidays, I went several days and did not log in any food intake. I've... Read more
My birthday was my downfall.....
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      1 comments

I have always joked that October is the beginning of the holiday season because my birthday is then, followed by Halloween a week later, Thanksgiving 4 weeks later and Christmas 8 weeks later. Can you tell where this is going? I had ... Read more
