I'm still blogging over on blogger instead of here, but when I think about it, I'll try to remember to post a link here as well. mokedddd.blogspot.com/2014/01/welcom

I have another blog site where I write about stuff not 100% related to my fitness goals. Tonight I wrote about my progress with the C25K program and my relationship. If anyone's interested, you can follow me there too: mokedddd.blogspot.com/

I'm going to do a quick blog post to distract myself from the fact that I'm still kind of hungry. I had a skinny margarita, tortilla chips, salsa, bean dip, guacamole, and some kind of spinach and cheese dip thing around 3 p.m. with a girlfriend before we went to see Monsters University. It's tough to estimate all those calories, and I'm pretty sure that I'm at my max for the day even though my estimate says I've got 230 calories to go. When I came home from the movie, I was hungry, but I made a smoothie from 2 cups of spinach, 1 banana, a cup of frozen blueberries and water. Way to get more nutrients without a ton of calories! But I'm still feeling munchy... I probably should have put a scoop of protein powder into the smoothie.
The other thing I wanted to blog about is that I finally got off my buts and started the couch to 5k program today. It's been a long time since I tried this and the last time I got stalled around week 3. So far, W1D1 was not so bad. I did the 5 min. warm up at a 3.1 mph pace, then jogged at 4 mph, and back to 3.1 for each of the cool down walks. I am super proud of myself. And I also think that this time might have been a little easier than last time, but the memory of last time is really vague and I could just be delusional! I do think I'm in much better shape than last time around. Maybe I'll manage to get past week 3!
OK, I guess that's it. I'm going to grab my glass of water and go get into bed with a book even though it's just a little past 8 p.m. I'm hoping I'll be able to avoid eating anything else tonight!

But that's ok. I'm talking about the 70,000 steps per week goal that I sort of made for myself on Tuesday of this week after having a really active Sunday and Monday. I'm going to finish up around 63,000 though, and that's not too shabby! I would have made it if I had forced myself to work out on Wednesday, but I came home from work just completely pooped and went to bed by 9:00, which is not normal for me. Still, having this goal in place pushed me further than I would have normally gone. So I'm calling that a win!! And now I'm off to shower off my workout and get ready to go hang out with a good friend for wine and movies. Have a great Saturday night!!

It's no secret that I have a competitive spirit and that I often challenge myself. Well, I managed to finish Sunday with around 9,000 steps, and yesterday with over 12,000. Without actually saying it out loud or writing it down, I decided I had to commit to getting an average of 10,000 steps a day this week and that it was doable. Only I came home from work today at just over 2,000. I did the Leslie Sansone 4 mile walking video and it was hard the whole way through. Not because the workout is hard. It's not anymore. It was just that I wasn't at all in the mood. I'm actually in a fairly pissy mood because of my guy and then it's pissing me off that I'm letting him piss me off. A vicious cycle. Anyway, I started the workout with a little cramp in my side that never did go away, but I pushed through it and finished the video. After those 53 minutes, I was still only at about 8,300 steps. What the heck!?! So, I continued to walk in place as I shut off the DVD and turned on Extreme Makeover. I thought I'll just keep going until I get my 10,000. OMG! It took forever!!!! 72 minutes altogether and I even jogged some of it because I was just so tired of moving and wanted to hit that stupid number. But I did it. So yay, I guess. Sometimes a workout is just work. Most of the time I get past the work and get to a happy place and that didn't quite happen today, but I'm still proud of myself for pushing through.
