Goals and Rewards-Chaning my thinking
Thursday, November 18, 2010      2 comments

I’ve been thinking a lot about goals and rewards recently. In the past I’ve made specific checklists showing how I will treat myself when I lose X number of pounds. While the list is fun to write it’s never really all that motivating. Yeah an... Read more

Two miles for some of you might be a warm-up but for someone who 6 weeks ago could barely run a block, I’m pretty stoked. On Friday I completed week 6 of C25k which culminated in a 25 minute run. Normally I run for time and I don’t pay attentio... Read more

I lost. I know I should be happy but honestly, I’m a tad disappointed. I only lost 0.4lbs. If ate breakfast it might have shown that I didn’t lose anything. After a 5lb loss last week I shouldn’t have expected any major loss. My leader told ... Read more

To be honest, when I started, I didn’t feel very inspired. Normally when I begin a diet I’m gung-ho and excited. This time I was feeling pretty down. I knew I gained a lot of weight rapidly and was feeling downright ugly. I didn’t want to sta... Read more

Max woke up at 6:30 and wouldn't go back to bed. Knowing that it was going to be a warm day, I decided that since we were up I might as well pack him in the stroller and get start C25K before it got miserably hot out. When I last did C25K, it ... Read more

Well, it's been one month since Max was born. Time has both flown by and crawled all at the same time. He still isn't sleeping more than 2.5 hours at a stretch (though we had one glorious 6 hour night) so I'm pretty much a zombie. We're gettin... Read more
