Eat More Veggies

I didn't eat before heading out to a swim meet tonight. I really wanted to grab one of the chicken sandwiches they were selling at the snack bar. But I didn't. I thought of cool tomato salad waiting at home instead. And a home made... Read more

Didn't enjoy the part of the check up where we discussed weight and bmi and my weight gain instead of weight loss. But the things I can control are my activity levels (adding on) and food intake (being deliberate). If I commit and fol... Read more
Asking for Help

I have a doctor's appointment coming up soon. Not only do I have several routine things that need done, but I'm going to ask for a referral for weight loss and/or nutritional counseling. I am still only traveling through time in one direct... Read more

I had a nice walk on the treadmill this morning. Even though I really didn't want to go to the gym at all. The great workout I did yesterday ended up being a little too great. I have sore shoulders and calves. (Note to self: don't try ... Read more
Nice Active Weekend

Had a nice weekend that included a good set of run intervals, walking all around downtown and a good lifting workout. Looking forward to another run out tomorrow. Still have my eyes on completing a 5k that is all running.... Read more

Counting all the walking around the campground with scouts over the weekend and a good workout today, I made it ito 500.... Read more
500 Minutes?
Sunday, April 29, 2012      1 comments

I realized that I'm within 80 minutes of hitting 500 fitness minutes for the month. Two days left in April. This may be all the motivation I need to get out and take a couple lovely walks or make sure I get in a good training run tomorrow.... Read more
How Cool Is This

We did a 5k this morning. Actually had a great time doing it. OK, wasn't so great on the uphill stretches, but I found a lot of grit that I wasn't sure I had. I didn't run it all, but I kept moving and kept cycling back into runs as often... Read more
Two More Days
Wednesday, April 25, 2012      0 comments

Went out to the park again this morning. This time I did a more solid run/walk interval set. I got through about half of the course. The goal was to get one last run in and to be familiar with the route. Plus, I'd been spending a lot of ... Read more
Only a Handful of Days
Tuesday, April 24, 2012      0 comments

I only have a few days until my first 5k. I'm not at all prepared to run the whole thing. But I'm really glad not to be injured and skipping it, as happened in the fall. I went out this afternoon and walked about half of the course so I w... Read more
More Setting The Example
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      1 comments

I'm past my one year anniversary of gym membership. I've had good months and bad months, but I'm definitely getting over there a couple times a week. Lots of treadmill and weights. But maybe the best result of being more active is that on... Read more
I'm an Example to My Kids
Tuesday, August 02, 2011      1 comments

We joined a gym a few months ago, and it has made me be much more consistent in working out. Now I can get a workout done in about an hour instead of several hours once I added in the drive and everything else I'd try to get done on base. ... Read more
What I Eat Matters
Thursday, February 03, 2011      0 comments

I think I'm discovering some of the connections between what I eat and how I feel. I've been tending to eat a lot less than usual, especially in the snacking department. Most of this is just because I don't have a full to the top pantry here. ... Read more
Because I Said So
Wednesday, February 02, 2011      0 comments

I was really delinquent today in getting out to the gym to do my treadmill time. It was after 1200 and I hadn't even had breakfast yet. It was the second run of a Couch to 5k week and I had the incline on 1% to simulate real running. ... Read more
Dodging the Fries

Might have learned my lesson about fast food. We went to Chili's yesterday after a long day of walking hilly trails and playing at the park. We'd skipped lunch and were very hungry. But I went for a chicken taco salad instead of a burger and ... Read more
