The runner in my mind
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      1 comments

Today was w1d1 of c25k (take 2). I've done the program all the way through before, even ran a 5k, but it's been years so I was expecting it to be basically starting from scratch. And it pretty much was but I don't think I'm in as bad of shape ... Read more
Making it normal...

As has happened before, I drifted away from Sparkpeople and have returned. I'm taking it really slow. Right now, I'm concentrating on tracking my food, trying to hit nutrition goals. I will start working out again next week, 20-30 minutes a d... Read more
Cleaning is my hobby now

I've been doing Flylady! Now, my routines still need work but I've been following the zones around my house for about 3 weeks and the difference is AMAZING! Each room I've been in, decluttering and such, looks wonderful already, even if there ... Read more

You'll feel better after you exercise - whether you want to now or not! Going off meal plan isn't always a bad idea, except when it is. Figure out what is a treat and what is a binge. There ARE muscles under that soft belly. Seriousl... Read more
My Pre-K Personal Trainer (and the awesome Workout Generator!)
Friday, August 20, 2010      0 comments

Tonight during our workout (my MIL and me) my 4-year-old hopped up on a footstool and proceeded to motivate us! "You're doing great, Mommy!" "Good job, Grandma!" LOL! He and his brother (Jack, almost 3) usually do their own version of the 30... Read more
To Log or Not to Log

So I'm torn... At work I have a good 30 to 45 minutes of heavy cleaning every day. I'm sure this burns some calories but I'm not sure I should list it on my fitness tracker. When I clean the house (heavy duty cleaning) on my days off I usuall... Read more
30DS Done! Before/After
Monday, August 16, 2010      4 comments

I did it! All 30 days! I lost 7 pounds (would've been more if I hadn't had a few days of bad eating chucked in there) and I feel awesome! Wish I had more to say about it - maybe another time. I'm planning to go another round of JM with my MI... Read more
Coming Clean
Friday, August 13, 2010      0 comments

The past 3 days have been full of "bad" eating for me. This is mostly because we were between grocery shops and without good options I chose whatever was easiest. Then I gave into the temptation of fast food a few times. I've still been worki... Read more

I have 3 more workouts in my 30ds. Thank goodness! No offense, Jillian, but I'm getting bored. Next up, I'll be ordering the P90X and then I'm sure I'll regret being bored by JM! Honestly I've really gained strength and endurance with the 30... Read more
Boo to the Blahs
Monday, August 09, 2010      1 comments

I've had some nice progress the past week or so but the last few days I've found myself lacking enthusiasm - both toward working out and eating well. I've managed to keep up with both but it's been really hard. So I'm working on ways to keep m... Read more
Under 130!
Friday, August 06, 2010      3 comments

I guess the double workouts worked (lol) cuz I hit 128 -- Yay! I always wait to be sure the same number comes up on the scale two days in a row before logging it so I was psyched when it said 128 again today. I realize now that I have to... Read more
Having a bit of a gripefest
Monday, August 02, 2010      1 comments

I've been off the past couple days. I've gone over on calories, missed a workout... In general I've been having trouble eating well or getting sweaty. Honestly, I HATE getting sweaty. I know that it means I'm making my body work but I ... Read more
Crazy cleaning bug
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      1 comments

My house is not dirty. It IS lived in but it's not really dirty. Except that lately the "lived in" state has been bugging the heck out of me! I have two small children so "pristine" is never gonna happen but I've just been feeling the house n... Read more
Shopping to sweat
Thursday, July 22, 2010      2 comments

I picked up sports bras and more hand weights yesterday. The urge to go crazy buying workout clothes is hard to resist! I have to remind myself that I have stuff I can sweat in and no one's gonna see me except family anyway so I don't have to ... Read more
I think I'm stronger!
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      0 comments

Ok, so I'm not talking superhero strong but I am definitely stronger. Today, I picked up a 12 pack of diet soda and actually thought "Oh no, some of these are empty!" I put it down, picked up another case and it was the same weight! They were... Read more
