The By the Numbers Team had a fitness minutes challenge last month. I found it really motivational to watch my minutes add up, so I decided to copy my post here so I could refer back to it. I'm also going to do one for February. Jan 1 - 148... Read more

One of my Spark Teams asked these questions in a thread and I decided to write a blog about it so I could revisit my success. It's especially needed right now because I've been struggling this week. What progress have you made so far this y... Read more

Actually, I'm going to backup up a little to mid-September and make this a 6 week check up. September was a stressful month at work and included traveling for a conference. Working longer hours than usual meant that I didn't feel like makin... Read more

I ran for 20 minutes straight today. I have no idea how. I started out intending to run 4 minute intervals. I got to the end of the first one and still felt pretty good, so I decided to try for 5 minutes. ... Read more
Half a Pound
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      13 comments

I was pretty disappointed at my weigh in last Friday. .5 pound loss. Seriously?!? I've been getting up at 5 am every morning to go to the gym for half a pound? Ugh! Logically I know that every little thing can influence the scale. (Stupid ... Read more

I finally made it to one-derland! And it feels wonderful! I haven't been below 200 since high school. I don't even know how long ago I crossed the 200 pound mark, I never weighed myself unless absolutely necessary. But I KNOW I'm never goi... Read more

I did the Color Vibe 5K this morning. It was so much fun! I did run a little of it. It wasn't a timed race, so I don't have an exact completion time, but we finished in about 40 minutes. Here we are pre-race. I'm on the right. I'm waiting f... Read more

Woo Hoo!

The scale shocked me this morning, in a good way. Down 5.5 pounds since last Friday. Wow. I couldn't believe it. I had to weigh myself 3 times. I even moved the scale and it still read the same. Hopefully, I wasn't just dehydrated and it's ... Read more
I ran today!
Saturday, April 27, 2013      10 comments

I told myself that today was the day I was going to try running and I did. I ran 5 one-minute intervals. I never thought I'd be able to run or that I would have a desire to. I continue to be amazed at what my body can do. Also a little ama... Read more
