Officially in training for my next half. I did 4x400 meter intervals and my AT's are hurting but I'm icing them. Did not track my food for a couple of days but I did not overeat! I was still committed to this program but its a difficult ... Read more

Went to Miami for Thanksgiving and that made tracking my food difficult. So for the day and a half we we there,I decided not to track. Even tho I did not track my food I was still committed to my program. I ate 3 meals a day and I did not ov... Read more

I am coming down with a cold. I'm going to Miami for Thanksgiving. These 2 events will prevent me from working out for a couple of days. I will be back at it on Monday. Monday is the official start of training for half #17. I have no choice,... Read more
Commitment Part IV

I'm getting a clearer picture of what it means to commit. It's not just enough to say it. You've gotta live it too. I knew it was going to be difficult this weekend at home. But I stuck to the calorie, fat, carb, and protein allotment. But I a... Read more
Weigh In

Well, the title says it all. I weighed in today and the dial moved ever so slightly in the right direction. I'm happy about that. It's the weekend and I'm home. The most I can hope for is maintenance. Not a lot of healthy foods to choose... Read more
Weigh in coming up

I'm going home tonight and I'll be weighing in. The dial better move, even a smidge, in the right direction. There's nothing more discouraging that doing everything you're suppose to do and then not seeing any results at all. That's why I sto... Read more
Good Day!

I didn't workout and I'm not beating myself up about it either! My Achilles' tendons hurt pretty badly. They hurt bad enough that I decided to take the day off. I'm going home tomorrow so no working out tomorrow either. My body needs the break... Read more
Committment Part III

I think I'll write about committment until I have no more to write about it. After all this is partly what committment means to me. So I was at the BX and, as at most check out lanes, there was candy staring back at me, winking and callin... Read more
Commitment Part II

I didn't realize I had so much to write about committment but apparently, I do. My commander's secretary and I were talking this morning and she made a good point about my committment. As long as she's known me I've been a runner and I've... Read more
Making a commitment

I read on yesterday that the one thing people who lose weight and keep it have in common is that they "commit" to weight loss. This can be as informal as getting a certain amount of fruit and veggies a day to weight at least once... Read more

I fount that my caloric intake before joining sp was right on target. The problem is/was my fat consumption. So the best part of this whole thing is that I'm really not watching the numbers that closely but I am much more aware of the fat that... Read more

I have been working out most of my adult life. I'm no stranger to a gym. I belong to two gyms, in fact. One I've been a member of since 2002 and yes, I use my membership!! The other gym is really a yoga studio. I don't go so much for the ca... Read more
