oooh, oooh, ahh

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

The blisters are painful and I must have added sound effects when I put on my shoes because my 3-year old grandson was walking around saying, "oooh, oooh, ahhh". At least he was not copying my funny walk. lol

Blisters and food choices

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I ended up getting blisters from my run yesterday! Ouch! I bought some Super Moleskin Padding to cover and protect. This product works better than band-aids, super sticky.

I am going to attempt to track my food again because I really need to get back on track and this no calorie counting in not really working for me. I like to eat and eat I do. I am hoping that tracking will get me back on track



I am sure if I swap some of the calorie rich foods for low calorie (i.e. celery, carrots, apples, and peppers) instead of bread and crackers that I will get back with it.

My hubby wants to lose weight and keeps saying he wants to to the program we did years ago (Jonny Bowden's Bootcamp). It is a low carb paleo diet. I lost a lot of weight doing it also but it eliminated all grains and beans. That diet made me sick of eating dead flesh and DH had kidney stone after kidney stone while on it. As a matter of fact, I missed the birth of one of my grandsons because DH was giving birth to a kidney stone that same day. That was over 5 years ago and we still call that grandson "Stoney".

    Kidney stones do NOT sound fun! Clearly his body was trying to tell him something... I think there are much better diets out there that will not cause the body so much stress!!!

You know what needs to be done! emoticon

I managed 5 miles today

Monday, October 20, 2014

Another beautiful day, so I went for a run.



The farmers are finished harvesting now (not much chemicals being added now) so I chose to go that way instead of the woods. It also meant flat roads for half of it. On one stretch I decided to run/walk the pole distances just to change things up and keep the voice inside my head quiet. Focusing on the pole helped me stay focused.

My pace was slow, but then I am a slow "runner" so nothing unusual about that. It reminded me of that year a took a running class and it was geared to getting you to run a 5k using the run walk method. One week when the run portion was a bit longer, I was managing to run the whole time and feeling pretty good about it until a walker passed me. Talk about bursting my bubble! lol

Have a happy day!

Don't get enough support ...

Monday, October 20, 2014

SO WHAT! That is the idea behind a little tidbit in On Fitness Sept/Oct issue. I often use the excuse that I do not get the support I need to eat healthy and whine and complain about how difficult in is to eat the right foods when no one around me is doing the same.

SO WHAT! Just because someone else is not eating healthy and/or exercising is really no excuse for me not to do what I know I should be doing.

The article states how to fix the issue of no support: JUST DO IT!

I think that is some good advice.

    Agreed! I used to have to cook 2 meals when I lived with my ex because I didn't think he wanted to eat my "diet" food... until eventually, I just said "This is what you are eating, take it or leave it!"
He took it, and eventually he lost weight too...


Just DO IT and you never know who you might inspire to come alonng for the ride with you!

    So true. I got sidetracked months ago and it is such a struggle to get back to doing what is the right thing to do.

    If you are looking for an excuse, "not getting enough support" will do. Excuses do nothing but cause days to pass without getting closer to goal.

I ran yesterday

Monday, October 20, 2014

I ran yesterday for the first time in about a month. I have had a bout of plantar fasciitis so I stopped running for a bit. As a precaution, I put two insert inside my shoe and wore compression socks for arch support.

The weather was perfect for a run. I checked the temperature, dressed for 40 degrees, but by the time I got ready and the sun shining I was able to shed by jacket by the time I reached the road.

I took it easy the first half mile, then picked up the pace. I was going to run to the next road (3/4 of a mile) and then turn around and go the other way to the lake. But in front of me was the flat road compared to if I were to go to the lake, it would mean a gradual slope downward which would turn into a upward on the way back. Since the farmers were done working in the fields, I chose the flat stretch. I reached my goal a little over 1/2 mile and my feet were starting to get sore. But not too bad. I decided not to push it too much on the first time on the road again and turned around. 2-1/2 miles and I don't know how long it took because I did not time it. It felt so good to run again

My granddaughter is excited that I may be able to start running again. I think she missed running with me just a little. Hopefully, we will still have some good running weather days before the cold settles in for winter.

    I just started back into running again recently too. Take it slow, an injury will just set you back again.

  emoticon Great job, I think it is wise to take it slow the first time back out on the road.
