I have to admit...

I blew it this weekend...big time! I think I probably had 20 chocolates, not to mention the chips, kettlecorn, soda, pie, ice cream...ummm...etc! Ugh! And, I didn't work out at all, though that was planned. Yes, the scale is now reflecting... Read more
So, how bad is it???
Friday, September 30, 2011      11 comments

I wasn't going to weigh myself this morning. I was afraid it would send me in the wrong direction...hopelessness, frustration, depression. Not at all what I need when I am trying to get back on track! But, I wanted an accurate reading of how 'ba... Read more

My post just got e-aten! Anyway, I'm struggling with overeating, poor nutrition, eating lots of junk food (to the point of my stomach aching!), and gaining WEIGHT!!! Ugh! I am TRYING to get back on track & just have to DO IT! I will try, again, ... Read more
Eating Too Much Makes the Scale mo
Thursday, September 29, 2011      3 comments

I'm just pretty frustrated with myself. I've been overeating for weeks. Not just overeating, but eating junk food instead of healthy food. It's starting to show on the scale and on my stomach. I'm frustarted with myself and have to mentally get ... Read more
Maxiumum Core Strength & Cardio Challenge
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday I tried two 'new' classes at my Y - back to back by the same teacher. They were very different classes, and I really enjoyed them both! The first was called "Maximum Core Strength." As you can tell from the name, it was a strength... Read more
Added...Half Marathon 2 weeks!
Saturday, September 24, 2011      4 comments

After a rough week where I just rested up, I had a great run today. And, I think I've figured out a big part of what was going on and why I was struggling with my workouts this past week. Just two weeks ago is when I ran my 5K that I'd been... Read more
Biggest Loser's Marathon
Friday, September 23, 2011      10 comments

I just wrote a long comment on a thread about the new Biggest Loser season. I've watched only part of the first far. (I just haven't had time to finish it yet.) A lot of us are very disturbed that they announced that ALL of the cont... Read more
Something's Wrong
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      14 comments

I don't know if I'm overtraining (likely) or burned out (I hope not!) or if it is just stress (got that, too)! I just want to QUIT! I can barely run. I had a goal of 5 miles today, but told myself 4 would be fine. I only made it 3, and I wa... Read more
Race Recap...Where I'm #1!
Sunday, September 11, 2011      21 comments

Yesterday I ran my anniversary race...the same 5K that I did for the first time last year after completing couch to 5K (C25K). And, my race bib was amazingly...#1! I got quite a few comments and heard people commenting as I walked around the rac... Read more
Back to Where It All Began
Friday, September 09, 2011      11 comments

One year ago this weekend, I raced in my first 5K. I had just completed couch to 5K (C25K) and was hoping to run the entire way. However, it was very hot out and I didn't know how to pace myself. I was very proud of myself for finishing the race... Read more
Hills on the Treadmill = FUN!
Thursday, September 01, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday's run was supposed to be a hill workout. But, the last time I tried the hill workout it was all in the sun and near 90 degrees. So, I decided to move it indoors! I'm reading a triathlon book by McMillan and decided to do his 'hill... Read more
Trying New Classes
Thursday, September 01, 2011      6 comments

This week I've been trying new classes at the Y! I have the free time now that my daughter is in school. And, since I'm now going to be able to do all 3 half marathons, I'm not sure I'll be doing the sprint triathlon I'd signed up for in late Oc... Read more
That was SCARY!
Monday, August 29, 2011      21 comments

Today's run was a practice 5K after a mile warmup. I joined my 'new' MWF group of runners, though, as I've mentioned...I'm slower than them so I really run alone! Our path today was around the RiverWalk which is 3 miles & then a mile around a bi... Read more
Energizer Bunny Run
Saturday, August 27, 2011      9 comments

I posted last weekend how I had a fairly lousy 7 mile run...though I did it so I won't complain too much! But, the weekend before I'd ran 6 miles and felt like the Energizer Bunny (EB). Well, I had another EB run today! I am tapering a bit ... Read more
Side Stitches & Sweat & Breathing....
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      9 comments

I went on my 2nd run with my new group. I LOVE this group! They are so nice. And, today several people joined us that didn't run on Monday. And, one of them was slower than me! It just makes me feel better as I was afraid I was going to cause pr... Read more
