Back to the grind....

Thursday, July 05, 2007

I ran a 5K yesterday and beat my record by 30 seconds!!! I'm working on getting my endurance back up to speed. I ran/walked 11 miles in 3 days.. but i still feel out of shape. I kind of have a headache today... but I'm gonna go for a walk anyways. I am trying to get cardio in 5x a week.. I already have a hike planned for tomorrow... so if i go today, i'll definitely accomplish my goal...

Oh, i've also added swimming to my cross training too. I've only gone once so far, but i hope to add it to my weekly routine!!!

My goal for next week is to run another 5 miles. :) Then maybe i'll boost it up to 6 the week after that. We'll see. I think I do better having my long runs on Mondays, rather than Fridays. I get lazy on fridays.


Say NO to cake!

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

I work for a company that L-O-V-E-S the cake. You name an occasion (birthday, retirement, baby, etc) and they'll have huge yummy cakes. And I look forward to Cake Day, and usually end up eating a piece, even if I shouldn't. Well today, they had this massive 3 layer vanilla-mousse cake with lots of chocolate frosting.... and I walked in, and walked out. I wasnt even tempted to eat it. The funny thing is, I realized that I used to eat cake because it was there, and it was free. Today, I was like "You know what? I don't even WANT cake right now." I was so proud of myself. Seriously, this was like a huge accomplishment. GO ME!

  I read the comment about the doughnut and now I feel very dumb. I was trying to get it off and write it over again but I didn't know how to. I'm very sorry about that big mistake. What I was going to say is that I have a hard time going to the store without stopping by the doughts. I hope that I can walk into the store and walk right by the doughts and never get it a another thought.

  I walk into the store and Igo right to the doughtnut. The I usually get is the apple fritter. That is going to be hard to give up I alway say that this is the last time I eat a apple fritter. The time I go to the store is to doughnut again. I hope that Icanjust walk away like that and say no.

I know what you mean about "free" food. It's like going to a buffet, where you have paid the entry fee and want to eat your dollar's worth (and then some).

The problem is, it might be free food dollar-wise, but calorie-wise is a completely different story.

    Oh my! That's awesome! I have struggled (and won!) in the past at refusing that slice of someone's birthday cake at work or some dessert after our family Sunday dinners! Go me! Go you! What a success! Cake...blech! lol.

Down 7 Pounds!

Tuesday, February 06, 2007

I just weighed in last night at 138! I'm so excited. My pants are actually feeling looser.. to the point where if I don't wear a belt, they're gonna fall right off! I'm so excited. One of my goals was to actually be comfortable in my clothes. I used to dread wearing certain pants because they'd be so tight and I'd feel sick at work. Now, they are totally fitting better.

I just bought size 8 jeans! i've been a 10 for about 2 years, so thats really exciting. I never in a million years thought I'd be a six.. but I think thats my next goal.

I'm totally loving crunches all of a sudden. I used to hate them, and cheat my way through. Now, I do 300 crunches (all different kinds) about 4 days a week. I feel a difference. I feel stronger.

I have people at work who are holding me accountable for walking too. We walk about 1.5 miles up a MASSIVE hill at lunch time twice a week. It's great because its helping blow my cardio minutes out of the water!! I'm just about tripling what SparkPeople says I should be doing for Cardio. I dont want to over do it, but I know that a little bit here and there is going to be great.

I think I recruited two people from work to join SparkPeople. Its such a great website. I absolutely love it. And so far... its working! YAY!


Lost 4 Pounds!

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

YAY. In just over a week, I lost four pounds! I'm really excited. I think that is the reward I needed to keep motivated to lose more. I'm sure it'll go up and down. But to see the initial loss feels great! I'm so excited. I love this SparkPeople website. It really keeps me accountable for what I eat and when I work out. This is great!


Starting New.
