Longest walk to date: 10.56 miles in 3:27:04. Went a bit slower today, due to Jeremy's head cold and my ankle was acting up for some reason...but we did it! I have no doubt that we'll be able to finish the half marathon in April, no problem! :) ... Read more
Feeling better!

I just completed my longest walk to date: 10.05 miles in 3:05:42. That averages out to an 18:28-minute mile pace...that makes me happy. On track for the half marathon in April. I still can't believe I accomplished this. It's almost like I'm... Read more

It's been a full five days since I last walked. Have been dealing with a sinus infection all was the first day since Monday where I didn't wake up aching. Plus the weather got all warm (okay, for NC it's warm...upper 50s in February... Read more
Interesting observation

Not based in fact, just my personal experience. I started eating poorly about five days before the walk on Sunday. The walk where I had no energy. Turns out I had a sinus infection...didn't get bad (like fever and body aches and scratchy throat ... Read more
Where did my energy go?

I've been wondering if the last couple of weeks had been a fluke, but I'm beginning to think not. I have noticed while attempting to do Leslie Sansone DVDs that I have been able to do previously without too much problem that it was all of a sudd... Read more

That's how I'm characterizing this week. I completely derailed food-wise the last three days. Plus I started a new job on Monday and I haven't figured out where to fit in exercise just yet. And today, instead of walking, I attempted to do some i... Read more
Blisters and bad weather
Wednesday, February 10, 2010      2 comments

So, walked 8.83 miles on Sunday. I was rewarded with my first set of blisters. :/ One on the bottom of my right foot (on the EDGE of the moleskin I'd put on the ball of my foot to prevent blisters!), one on my pinky toe of my right foot, and one... Read more
First walk in over a week

After a energy-filled breakfast, I'll finally be heading out to take a walk. It's been miserable weather the last week and a half; we got snowed in last Friday night, and there were icy roads for a few days. That was promptly followed by three d... Read more
Getting my walking in
Friday, January 29, 2010      1 comments

So there's a snowstorm blowing in tonight. As a result, I've been racing to get my walking in this week before the snow hits. Because in the South, snow shuts the place down. :P We Southerners just don't know how to deal with snow (unless you li... Read more

I finally "graduated" from 3-pound weights to 5-pound weights, and used an 8-pound weight as my "heavy" weight. (This from 3- and 5-pound weights.) I'm doing the 30 minutes to fitness bicep/tricep/shoulder workout from Kelly Coffey-Meyer, and I ... Read more
My body is confusing me.

I've always been the girl who gains weight the week of her period. Like 3-5 pounds of water weight, like clockwork, every single month. Except for the last two months, during period week, I've not only lost weight, they've been big losses--in ex... Read more
Bad week for exercise
Friday, January 22, 2010      0 comments

I've only got in 113 minutes of exercise so far this week, and even though I have another 7.8 mile walk planned for tomorrow, if I manage to complete that I will still be short of my 300-minutes-a-week goal by about 40 minutes. Why? Couple of re... Read more
I rawk! :)
Saturday, January 16, 2010      4 comments

I walked 7.87 miles in 2 hours and 26 minutes today. That averages out to an 18:37 minute mile pace. I rawk because this is the longest walk I've ever done without stopping. EVER. I'll do the happy dance later, I am quite tired now. ... Read more
Finally got back outside!

It's been a full two weeks since I've walked outside. No joke, the last time was on New Year's Eve day. So I walked 4.7 miles in 82 minutes today, which pleased me immensely. One, I was able to keep my heart rate steady in the mid-130s. Two, I h... Read more
Tracking what you eat does make a difference.

(crossposted from my personal blog) This was the first week since embarking on this lifestyle change that I made a concerted effort to track what I'm eating. I'm doing it through (And it's already driving Jeremy [my boyfrie... Read more
