Still Waiting.

I got a blood test at the doctors office yesterday to “officially” confirm the pregnancy. I should get the results today. I’m trying not to freak out, but I am. Since the HPT’s were all over the charts (that one negative is KILLING me) I deci... Read more

So a big fat life altering, totally scary but really awesome wrench has been thrown into my plans. I’m probably pregnant. Here’s the back story. I had been on the pill consistently for 5 years. Finally, at the end of May, my hubby a... Read more

Monday, June 29, 2009      3 comments

I DID IT!!! I RAN FOR TWENTY MINUTES STRAIGHT. I am on top of the world right now! I cannot stress how much I was NOT a runner. Throughout childhood I was always the lone kid walking in gym glass. I ran a mile (straight) ONCE in my life, in 6... Read more
W5D5 and a few off days....
Thursday, June 25, 2009      0 comments

Ok. It’s time to get back on track. The last few weeks haven’t been great. While I kept up my C25K training and additional cardio, I wasn’t doing ANY strength training. I was sleeping in past Pilates Chair class and making excuses to avoid th... Read more
I won't let week 4 of C25K kill me!
Monday, June 15, 2009      3 comments

Holy Hard, Batman! Doing week four is DEFINATELTY hard, but at the same time, it was more a head game. I was exhausted at the end of each 5 minute run, but I could still catch my breath. My legs were heavy, but W3D2 was worse. That was offic... Read more
A lesson learned: You are what you eat.

Since I started this lifestyle change, I’ve tried to be aware of what I eat. Sure I’ve had the occasional binge or emotional eating attack but it would be a one time thing, then I would spend the rest of the day trying to do better. I am by no... Read more

Started w3d1 of c25k yesterday and it went better than expected. Again, I thought I could run even longer. Actually, on the last 3 min stretch, I added and additional 60 seconds. Yay! It was my first run with my new running shoes and I am sho... Read more
Pulling myself out of depression

I’m really trying to pull myself out of this funk. It’s not really diet or weight loss related, but when I’m in a personal funk, my diet and exercise seems to suffer as well. Classic emo eater here. It started this weekend. My husband ... Read more
Sleepiness, c25K w2d2 and new shoes.
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      1 comments

Yawn. I’m exhausted. On Tuesdays, I usually exercise after work for 40 minutes and then attend a Pilates chair class. However, yesterday, since I didn’t get in a full 60 minutes of cardio in the morning, I headed to the Y after work to get in ... Read more
C25K W2D1

I found a training buddy! Yippee! The Divas usually walk on Thursdays and Sundays but Sundays usually have a smaller group. Yesterday it only ended up being me and Stacy E (spark person SLEIGHBELLE). I recalled in Stacy’s workout log that she... Read more

The last day of week three WAS AWESOME! At the end of every run I was disappointed that the run was over. I could have gone longer, but I have a tendency to jump into things with both feet, then pay the consequences. When I started C25K, I pro... Read more

I missed my morning workout today. While I set my alarm for 5AM, I didn’t actually turn it on. Luckily, I woke up with plenty of time to get to work, I just couldn’t make it to the gym. It’s not a huge deal as I don’t have much going on tonig... Read more

I’ve never been a runner. In elementary school I couldn’t run the quarter mile lap around the school during PE. In middle school, I ran, just barely, a mile and ended up limping for days after. Since then, 15 years later, I haven’t ran more t... Read more
I fell, literally.

I wrote before about trying out the Pilates MVE Chair class at my Y. Since that post, I have gone two more times. Both those times were a disaster. Most of the class went well. The instructor is still a bit Looney Tunes but it’s usually easy ... Read more

I love oranges it is simply too embarrassing for me to eat them at work. I make the biggest mess and my whole office is covered in orange juice and orange pith. Seriously, I’m gross. Ok, now that I got that out of the way, I gained .5 lb... Read more
