Cheeseburger = tough run day
Monday, January 23, 2017      9 comments

Yesterday I was really craving meat and I realized from my nutrition tracker that I haven't eaten much meat this past week, and I've been a little low on daily protein. As a result, I ended up eating too much fat for lunch yesterday when I split... Read more
Ran/walked 4 miles today and had faster splits
Saturday, January 21, 2017      3 comments

I was only supposed to run 30 minutes according to my marathon running plan, but I ended up going 60 minutes because I felt so incredibly good. My splits were also almost a minute faster than the past 2 weeks have been. It was weird because when... Read more
Exercise first

They say to do the most important things first, so I usually did the most unpleasant parts of work first thing. But then it was hard to exercise later in the day. So today I did my stationary bike first thing and it was so much easier than I e... Read more
Ran/walked 4 miles today
Thursday, January 19, 2017      4 comments

I'm glad it didn't rain, although when I started out on my run, I expected it to rain before I came home. I also forced myself out to run even though I'm still on my period, and I'm really glad I did. The run wasn't as hard as the last run I had... Read more
Honolulu Marathon for 2017
Monday, January 16, 2017      5 comments

I realized last year that I really don't run consistently if I don't have a race to train for, but there just aren't many races that appeal to me and fit within my budget. However I try to fly home to Hawaii to see my parents at least twice a ... Read more
Positive thinking
Tuesday, July 22, 2014      6 comments

Realized today that I tend to focus on my eating and exercise mistakes at the end of the say rather than the accomplishments. I never thought of myself as a negative person. In fact I'm usually pretty positive but apparently not when it comes to... Read more

Spark Activity Tracker - solution for where to put it
Thursday, January 02, 2014      7 comments

I ordered the Spark Activity Tracker since it seemed a good way to track my steps and also record my exercise on SparkPeople. It's not always accurate in terms of how long I've been exercising, but so far I enjoy using it. Right now I'm at 6000 ... Read more
Day by day
Saturday, December 28, 2013      5 comments

I did pretty good over Christmas, not stuffing my face although I did go over my calorie count. I also ran every day while on vacation, which was fantastic. I read the One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs and it was really inspiring and helpful. It... Read more
Back at it again
Monday, December 23, 2013      4 comments

I feel like I do this all the time: Something sidetracked my fitness and eating, I gained weight, and I finally reached a point where I was too disgusted to continue and so I'm back on SparkPeople. But I guess that's better than not getting back... Read more
FMD - off the diet
Monday, July 22, 2013      7 comments

I quit the Fast Metabolism Diet after 3 weeks. I think I was doing something wrong in Phase 3, although I couldn't figure out what it was. I'd lose weight in phases 1 and 2, and then gain it back in phase 3, and so each week I lost only 1-1.5 po... Read more

Yesterday was day 6, but I had such a bad headache last night that I couldn't write my blog entry, so I'm doing it today. Yesterday when I woke up, I was disappointed that I hadn't lost any weight. :( I hadn't gained any either. :) I t... Read more
FMD day 5
Thursday, July 04, 2013      5 comments

I'm feeling better today, but I was surprised to get a low grade headache in the early evening. I'm not sure what's going on --if it's because of my period or if I'm getting a detox headache. I had really bad cramps today and took Tylenol, ... Read more
