Feeling very proud today. Less than a month ago, I ran my first 5k in 43:05 (a 13:45 pace). Today, I ran 5k in a training run for the first time, and I did it in 39:00 (a 12:24 pace). I still won't be winning my age division any time soon, but dang, that feels good! :)

LDION2005...that's hilarious! Now you can just relax for a few months. :D But seriously, that's amazing...you're doing so great at getting your minutes in! emoticon

Just have to say I love this team and all the positivity that everyone brings...feeling like eating a horse today so I'm on here trying to distract myself and I think it's working. :)

Guess what??? I don't have to exercise until next year! LOL I have been on Spark since July 3 and today just completed the minutes goal for the year. I have browsed around and didn't find where the year minutes goal can be changed. Not too sure how that was calculated for me.

OK this is not exercise related but I drove 3 hours to the city, walked through 5 dress shops and the mall, (and walmart and penny's), and "did" find a dress for my son's wedding. Still same ol' size 22, and need to hit QVC for spanks but feel real relief. Has any one else noted that as the sizes get wider they get longer too, even petite? According to their charts I should be 8 ft. 2 in. LOL

Today, I ran a 5k! Wasn't planning on it at all--didn't even know there was one until last night. But this morning was supposed to be my "graduating" C25K run, so even though my longest run so far had only been about 2.5 miles, I figured why not. And I ran the whole way and didn't finish last!, so I've been feeling awesome about the accomplishment all day.

I am excited! When I started personal training in May, I could not do 5 shallow squats even with a ball at the wall. I used the vertical leg press today for the first time and had no difficulty. It is 65 lbs with no added weights and she had suggested I not even try. It was my last day with her so I made the request. No problem! I know I will be able to use it independently now---even add weight after I practice a while. 14 weeks later-Weight loss-no, strength and flexibility-YES!

Congrats to everyone on your accomplishments!

My success for the day is that I finally broke a 13-minute mile! I just finished Week 7 of the C25K program and have been feeling very slow, so even though I know that a 13mm is hardly speedy, it's the best I've done since I started running more than 8-minute intervals.

@LDION - be thankful that you didn't gain!!! I am slowly learning that even when you do everything right, it doesn't happen just like we want it to.

As for me... it's been too hot for my lunch walks, which means I've been slacking a little on exercise. So I hopped out of bed this morning (okay, I drug myself out of bed this morning!!!) and walked 2 miles while it was still somewhat cool. Felt great emoticon

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun!

After feeling discouraged about my 1 lb gain this week, I gave myself a pep talk, took a walk at lunch (yes, it was really really hot!!!!), and went to water aerobics this evening. I was also pleased to see that for the first day this week, I was within all my nutrition ranges!!!

Woo Hoo! Yay you!! I am so proud of you! You rock! And I really enjoyed the game! I love doing word games, and sometimes I can't sleep at night, and I love to get involved in Word Association or anything that is going on. It really helps so I don't go into the kitchen and eat, which was an old habit of mine. I am so glad you learned that technique from the Stress Busters Group! You are awesome! Way to go! and Fantastic job!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

This brag starts off with a BOOOO ... I was so stressed out last night, I woke up an hour after going to bed with tension and muscle pain in my shoulders, neck, and back -- all personal reactions to stress, I know them well. I got up and got some warm fat free milk and sat down at the computer. Thank God for Pattie who played a word game with me for an hour while I caught up on my SparkMail, email, etc. I finally conked out at 230 but that 605 alarm came too soon. I popped right up and put my workout clothes and shoes on before I could make a different choice. I grabbed my phone and earplugs and got out the door. My walk started slowly, but as the beat of the music picked up, so did I. I felt great for doing it! Completely destressed for the morning. Of course, once I got to my office and the students started lining up at the door (we're nearing the end of summer semester), I felt it rise up again. This time I closed my door for a few minutes and used the breathing technique I learned on the Stress Busters group. When I opened the door, I was revived and renewed! YEAH ME and YEAH SPARK!!

Started week 3 today with the weigh-in, down from 99.2kg to 99.0 so after the first two weeks I've lost 2kgs (4.4lbs) which is great. I expected a slow down this week (blame the weekend really) slightly disappointed that I haven't reduced my vital stats (yep we men have them as well) so I need to do some abs this week.

Thanks for all the support, I think this site is just great. Onwards and upwards,
Peter

Had an awesome night of sleep -- changing my mind about what activities belong in the bedroom has really helped me! No more TV, reading, hanging out. Now my bedroom is a haven for sleeping and spending time with the DH...All lights, including that little blue light on the cable box, have to be OFF so it's completely dark. I have enjoyed sleeping this past two weeks in ways I haven't enjoyed since before I had children (20 years!!)

Took a walk with the uncontrollable dog this morning and the DH... although it wasn't a steady walk at first (he had to sniff everyone's mailboxes!), we dropped him back off at the house and continued to walk.

YEAH ME! emoticon

Three weeks ago I went out and bought a few new T-shirts in a larger size because I was sick of seeing my stomach so bulgy....but today all those tops were WAY TOO BIG! I mean I was swimming in them, lol. Kinda feel I wasted my money on them now, but if feels good to be getting smaller.

Hi All,
Lovely morning here (that means its not raining !!!) I even had to put the sun screen on - another great sign. Went for another lovely walk this morning around the coast - increased the distance a wee bit and did not break in the middle this time - had the water on the go.
So feeling fine, even had the energy to get on the bike and cycle into town to do the shopping so its salmon tonight with some broccoli and lovely new season Dublin Queens potatoes.

Enjoy your day,Peter

I started my exercise goals with just 15 minutes 6 days a week. I met that goal and today I added 5 more minutes. I just don't want to go overboard and then fizzle out. 20 minutes was nothing but it added additional exercise calories!! emoticon emoticon

Well done Pattie441, I have a favourite pair of jeans I hope to get into, but it will be a few months I think, so I'm delighted you got into the T-Shirt well done.

Well after 1 week, the weigh in was this morning and I've lost 4 pound, an inch off the waist and an inch off the hips so I'm delighted emoticon .

All set for week 2 onwards and upwards !!!!

I lost 2 pounds this week when I weighed in yesterday, and I feel awesome! I have lost now a total of 40 pounds, and I was told that was how much a bag of fertilizer weighed. And that is pretty heavy! No wonder I was feeling bad. We can do it and we ARE! I am so glad you all are here! emoticon emoticon

This thread is for talking up our successes. It's okay to brag - in fact, I'd encourage you to brag as MUCH as you want - it's an essential life skill! Brag on yourself, on all your achievements, and accomplishments, little or big.

You'll find, the more you celebrate the little wins, the more your mind and body will cooperate to create the bigger ones.

Make it happen - and come TELL us about it on this thread!

Woo Hoo! We can do it!! I'll start.....


I feel so proud of this team and the people in it and feel it is a huge success! Thank you everyone for taking that great step to a healthy you! You are so worth it! Woo Hoo! emoticon emoticon
