Sunday, March 14, 2010      5 comments

As part of my last week of C25K, I ran a St. Patty's 5K in under 40 minutes! WooHoo!! 39:16 to be exact. Under 40 was my goal and I'm really, really proud of that accomplishment as the route was very hilly and windy. The most exciting th... Read more

Even now, the morning after, I cannot believe that I actually did it! After 9 weeks of training, I actually ran an ENTIRE 5K on the treadmill yesterday in 37:25 which means that mileage was set at 5.0 for the most part, with a daring 5.5 "sprin... Read more

So after five weeks on the Couch to 5K program, I ran my first 5K on Saturday. OK, well I didn't exactly run the whole thing. At 5 weeks, I'm supposed to be able to run 20 minutes, and I'm sure I ran at least 2/3 of the race and ended under 45... Read more

Why are we so impatient with weightloss? It's true we didn't get fat overnight and so common sense should tell us that it won't come off overnight. But we don't want to believe common sense. We want to believe every other promise and fad, eve... Read more

Tonight is Biggest Loser and so for me, this is the day I choose to weigh myself. My program is simple: I have Body Media's Gowear strapped to my arm measuring my calorie burn and I use SparkPeople to track every single thing that goes into m... Read more

Let's start with baselines: I now weigh 159 pounds (that's a net loss of 7 pounds that came after I had gained some in the beginning, then got serious about losing). This keeps me in the OVER category for BMI. My size 14s are feeling roomy, an... Read more

Week 7: Continued with the "fat flush" diet for week 7 and worked hard at my Fitness Boot Camp. At my Boot Camp assessment (after three weeks of workouts) I decreased my mile time by 1:30 minutes (woohoo) AND ALMOST ran the whole mile!!!! I a... Read more

Well I finished the second week of my 2-week fat flush, and I did amazingly well. Although I really didn't want to get on the scale for the eight-week segment, I thought it was a good benchmark to see how the "fat flush" worked, so I did weigh ... Read more

OK, so we're almost to the end of week five of our pregnancy in REVERSE. I'm getting really nervous that our group is unmotivated, as there have been VERY few posts recently, and no real leadership. I'm trying to think of ways I can be helpful... Read more

Honestly Week Two was a bust. I'm not sure what happened, but I totally dropped the ball. I even left days of nutrition un-tracked, which I wasn't going to do. BUT, I will not let that stop me. I am going to be one of the ones that make ... Read more
