Breaking Down Walls

It's a late night. I'm pretty wiped after a big run/walk this evening. But I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who has commented on my blogs and on my SparkPage. I haven't been able to make the rounds this weekend, but am hop... Read more

So I did get my pound lost this week. Down from 206.6 to 205.4. That's 1.2 pounds for the week and a little over 5.5 pounds for the past 4 weeks. I'm a little concerned because looking at my calorie differentials, I really should be losing... Read more

I had hoped to get this entry up earlier tonight. However, drama ensued with the non-ending sage of my water line. After almost a month after they said they'd do it, my local water department finally installed my new meter today. I had a major l... Read more
September Goals plus a bonus weekly plan to increase my chance of success

Congrats to all of you lucky people who got a three day weekend. Unfortunately, that was not the case for me. My company provides a number of floating holidays and very few actual "paid" holidays. Because I started my job later in the year, I on... Read more
Neither rain nor sleet...

...will apparently keep me from running. Well, sleet might. Ice, asphalt, and my clumsy butt are a one way ticket to the emergency room. I woke up this morning and it was pouring rain. The Boyfriend and I made an attempt to get to the walki... Read more
Lazy Day
Saturday, September 01, 2012      3 comments

Today is definitely a lazy day. On and off rain outside and feeling really tired. Fell asleep around 10 last night and slept until 11 this morning, which is highly unusual for me. I suspect my body is telling me to chill out, so that's what I pl... Read more

Today was weigh-in day, and I lost 1.4 pounds to be exact. I'm down to 206.6. It's a better number than I thought it would be due to TOM. In the past I haven't posted a loss at all or just a .5 pound loss during my TOM week, so I'm pleased... Read more
Wasn't in the groove today

Today's run wasn't so great. Overall, I was a little slower than I have been, averaging 17.5 minutes per mile instead of the 17 I was rocking before. I felt my pace was a bit slow, definitely when I walked. I'm hoping to chalk it up to good ole ... Read more
I wondered why people look at me oddly when I jog...

I'm sure some of you have seen this before, but I caught this on Pinterest and laughed until I cried. A little more humor for today after yesterday's turmoil.... Read more
It's pouring crazy, but I'm still in the game

This weekend was awesome. I packed in 5.5 miles of hiking, walking/jogging another 2 miles, and an hour and a half in the pool. Calories, not so great, but I try to cycle and so far this does not seem to affect me. I also still keep an eye on th... Read more
1st weigh in: 3 pounds down and first goal met!
Friday, August 24, 2012      2 comments

My first official weigh-in since I started this back up a week and a half ago was today. I was happy to see I had lost 3.2 pounds! Not a bad start at all. I've met my first goal a week early, so that is definitely something to celebrate. My goal... Read more
My body (and mind) are being weird today
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      1 comments

I am thinking of starting to use video blogs in these entries, but I'll save that for another day when I'm in a bit better mood. No doubt about it, I feel crummy today. Very tired, kind of moody, and just a bad case of the blahs. My 5K trai... Read more
It's awful quiet around here...

The past few days have been uneventful. And that in itself is highly unusual. I'm used to last minute assignments for my graduate class. Or a constant stream of random life hijinks. Like last week, when I first started back with the chang... Read more
Busy Day
Sunday, August 19, 2012      0 comments

So I managed to do Day 3 of the first week of the 5K Your Way program. I tried a flat track with some new shoes. Not only do I not have the hip and back pain I was experiencing, but I ended up doing 2 miles instead of the typical 1.3. So yeah, g... Read more
Whew! Major hike today!

So, the bad: I've really been off on calories the last two days. A new Five Guys opened up in the town I work in and I haven't been to one since last April. So I splurged bigtime at lunch yesterday. Plus, the boyfriend's down for the weekend, an... Read more
