Run! :)
Wednesday, April 11, 2007      0 comments

I just went for an outdoor run: 2.9 miles, 30 minutes, 5.8 mph. Two minutes of walking at the end (cooldown) brought me to 3.0 miles. I know the mileage because I drove it afterwards. How convenient to have exactly a 3.0 mile loop. Will have... Read more

Took my measurements tonight & was pleasantly shocked. Waist is 26.5 inches!! Hips 35 inches! I didn't measure my bust but my newest bras are 34s. On a Bloomingdales size chart online that put my size at anywhere from a 2-8 and from a P/XS-M... Read more

Some New Stats

I just went back to
index/bmi.htm which is a very informative website about your weight. I am now considered normal weight by both of their standards (I am 142.8), though with a BMI of 23 I could still stand to... Read more
Coffee is my Savior!!!

I know it's not good to depend on a drug and caffeine is a drug, but I'm not sure I would have been able to get even half as good a workout if I hadn't stopped at Dunkie's before the gym today. It was just a small coffee(skim milk and splenda, ... Read more
Just Checking In

I haven't blogged in a while so I figured it was time. I had a frustrating week+ where my weight was inching up slowly. I started at 143.0 on Sunday, then it slowly crept up to 144.0 nine days later (yesterday). So I buckled down, worked out ... Read more

145.0 today. That's 0.2 up from yesterday, but I'm about to get my period. It's silly how it bothers me to be up even that little even with that good a reason, but I can't help it. Positive thinking, Susan!! Ran 60 minutes this morning -... Read more

144.8 pounds today! Holy smokes!! The stairmaster fit test today FINALLY moved me up a level. I've gone from "low" fitness level to "fair." Sweet. I was hoping for at least "average." I guess I should be happy that I'm not "low" anymor... Read more
I Feel Fabulous :)

I did two hours on the elliptical this afternoon, level 14, at a good pace. My heart rate stayed around 140-155, I was sweating, and by the end the machine said I'd burned over 1,600 calories. Whatever. I'm still going to eat a small, super-d... Read more

I've done it - I have attained my lowest adult weight ever: 146.0. The last time I weighed this amount, I was probably in my early teens!! Today one of my students said, "You've lost so much weight." I told the kids about Weight Watchers a... Read more
My Amazing Man
Sunday, March 18, 2007      0 comments

Last night Jess and I had a talk. He told me that he knew all along that I COULD lose the weight and get healthy, but was very happy and surprised at how exceptionally well and quickly I have done it. Then...and this brings out the happy tears... Read more
St. Patty's Day
Saturday, March 17, 2007      1 comments

Today I am exactly 20 pounds less than when I started in late January: 147.0 I just ran 5.5 miles (technically 5.49) in 1 hour and felt fantastic. It felt like flying. My sneaker didn't hurt so I guess I don't need new ones for running af... Read more
What's my Main Motivation?
Friday, March 16, 2007      1 comments

Yesterday SparkPeople promoted me to Stage 3 - Lifestyle Change. I am excited about this because in this stage I'm going to learn how to keep it up (or DOWN in the case of my weight) for life. I have never done a program before that I didn't e... Read more

There is NO WAY I can stick to this program if I'm sleep deprived. Today at the gym I was really dragging. I also think I might be overtraining. Yesterday, of course, was my six-mile run. Today, I needed to do strength training for the first... Read more

It's amazing - I keep discovering that the things I've always read about diet and exercise are true. I always had the information in theory - I'd read ALL the magazine articles and lots of the diet books. I knew it had to be all about a lifest... Read more
