Had another great bike ride this morning. I bumped up my route to 28 miles in hopes of making it take a full 2 hours, but I rode so fast that I did it in 1 hour and 54 minutes. ... Read more
Did another 5K
Sunday, July 29, 2012      1 comments

This time it took a few minutes longer, but it was also at 6pm and it was 78 degrees and humid, and there was a hill that was a LOT bigger than I expected a mile into the course. The biggest factor, though in the longer time I believe it that ... Read more
My first 5K
Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

The 5K race was this morning. It was a pretty cool experience and I will definitely do it again. It is so different running in a group like that, versus running by myself or at the gym. I am proud to say I beat my personal best time by over a... Read more

I went to a store to get a pair of shorts for work today. It is still so hard to believe that I fit into a size 12! I picked up a 16, and thought "Hmmm, these look pretty small, they'll probably fit, but I'll take a 14 too, just in case." I g... Read more

down to 171.6 this morning! woo hoo! I know I haven't been at this weight since at least 1993. I have been taking it easy on the diet (aka eating whatever I want) since July or so, but I have been keeping up with my exercise. It is nice to s... Read more

I went to a picnic at a park on Friday and got to go on that carnival ride I had to get off of last time because I was too big. That was a big turning point for me and one of my goals was to fit on that ride again. It felt so great to not onl... Read more

Ellipticals rule!
Sunday, June 24, 2007      2 comments

I have noticed that my weight loss slows way down when I do less elliptical work and more other cardio exercises, like biking and walking. Everytime I go back to doing mainly the elliptical, the weight just melts off! I was skeptical that it ... Read more
