Down Day
Friday, June 07, 2013      1 comments

Today was a "rest" day for me. I was busy getting some things mailed out for my business, hopefully helping other folks onto the path the feeling better. So, I ended up getting only 5000 steps. I could have pushed it and got the steps in, but... Read more
C25K Week "0" Day 2!
Thursday, June 06, 2013      0 comments

I can truly say I am surprised. Tuesday, I went through the program twice, alternating fast walking with jogging (or shuffling, like a friend of mine said) during the segments I was supposed to jog. I figured more of the same today. Well, aft... Read more
Consistency

I am getting more consistent with the 10,000 steps. :) I'll admit, I was a little worried that I would be hurting after the C25K day yesterday, but I had very little pain. Even my feet, that normally would have me limping after the pounding d... Read more

So, back in January, when I first started trying to lose weight, I tried C25K for the first (and last) time. I just could not keep up with the jogging parts. I talked about it in this post. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa

Late Night Workouts
Tuesday, June 04, 2013      0 comments

I don't know why, but I just feel more energetic at night. I suppose I have always been a night person. For example, I didn't start walking until 10:30 last night, and I hit the 3 mile mark about a hour later. Of course, without a job right no... Read more

Sunday, June 02, 2013      4 comments

I admit it, I'm just not up to 10,000 steps a day EVERY day. However, mowing the yard this morning gets me very close, so I will be hitting it today. ... Read more
Long Time, No Post
Saturday, June 01, 2013      1 comments

So, the new job did not work out. During that time, I really didn't lose any weight. I've been moping around for a few weeks looking for another position. But, the good news is, my weight loss is back on! A couple of weeks ago, I passed Goal ... Read more
Almost to Second Goal!!!
Sunday, February 17, 2013      3 comments

I haven't been as active as I should be, either physically or on here. I started a new job almost 2 weeks ago, and while it is on my feet, and I have to do quite a bit of walking, if I start walking for fitness on the job, everyone around me wi... Read more
How to Walk 20k Steps in a Day
Sunday, February 03, 2013      6 comments

...Lock yourself out of the house. Yeah, I know, smooth move. And my boyfriend was out of town. Cell phone - inside. Water - inside. SOCKS AND SHOES - inside. At least I had a jacket on, but flip flops were NOT optimal (although they had t... Read more
C25K - Sorta
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      2 comments

I've wanted to try C25K for a while. After a few weeks of marching in place (a la Leslie Sansone videos), I figured I could throw in some running in place. I found the following podcast so I could play it on my computer while trying: http://w... Read more

I do not have a green thumb. But, we are trying gardening this year - meaning my boyfriend builds any beds, trellises, etc. while I dig in to bags and bags and bags of compost, peat moss, and vermiculite, mix them up, fill the planters, and pla... Read more
