Wednesday, August 06, 2008      1 comments

So, in my effort to cross-train, I bought a bike (and so did my girlfriend). It set me back about $1300 with stuff and bike shorts. My first day I rode a humble 8 miles and tomorrow I'm going to double that. No butt pain (thank goodness). ... Read more
I jogged 2 miles!!
Monday, August 04, 2008      5 comments

Yay! Another milestone!! I didn't time myself; it was a slow jog, but I jogged all the way! It helped that it was late at night, so probably only in the upper 70's. Once the sun hits me, I'm done. My goal is to get to 3.5 miles so t... Read more

Friday, July 11, 2008      2 comments

Yesterday, after three days of rest (okay, so...it wasn't three days of REST, but pure laziness on day 2 and 3), I ran. Here's how I did: First 1.5 miles ~ 20 minutes (that's a 13.3 minute mile pace!) Last 1.5 miles ~ 25 minutes (only ra... Read more

Monday, June 30, 2008      7 comments

I have been wanting to do it for some time - and today I did it!!! Okay, I had to slow the pace WAY down, but I jogged for 14 minutes, which at a 14 min mile pace, makes it a full mile! I figure the important thing is that I hung in there f... Read more

Not eating enough...back to logging calories
Sunday, June 08, 2008      1 comments

I haven't lost one ounce since the beginning of the month. I am sure it's because I haven't been eating enough. So, I am back to logging calories, back to making sure that I get my 1200 calories. I haven't been having my yogurt or my afte... Read more

Friday, May 30, 2008      1 comments

I went through my closet today and tried on EVERYTHING. A lot of things that didn't fit me before, now fit after my 31 lb loss. A lot of things that I wore 31 lbs ago STILL fit. Why? Because I wore them insanely tight and now they are loose. ... Read more
