PR! First sub hour 10K ever for me.

Sunday, November 15, 2009      10 comments

I headed out on my run today with the intention of running my 10K training run in 75 minutes, knowing that would put my pace at 5 miles an hour and give me an awesome calorie burn. I pushed myself hard the whole time, making sure my heart staye... Read more

Plastic surgeon consultation

Friday, November 13, 2009      8 comments

I blogged a long time ago about the fact that I am considering breast reduction when I reach my goal weight, if I still feel that I would benefit from it to reduce the constant pain and discomfort I have as a result of my well endowed bosom. I ... Read more

First day back to exercising after 9 days off

Monday, November 09, 2009      8 comments

Oh boy, did I come back with a bang! I ran with my best friend this morning for 31 walk/28 run totalling 59 minutes. She did 13:12 running non-stop, her record so far! Way to go friend! When we were done our work together, it was time for me... Read more

Rest week

Friday, November 06, 2009      5 comments

I decided to make this week an exercise rest week. Good thing too, because my schedule hasn't really worked out for it to happen, and I would probably be a basket case stressing myself out over not getting in my exercise. Also, I have continu... Read more

Me and the wagon

Wednesday, October 28, 2009      10 comments

Every time I decide to "get serious" about this weight loss stuff, I fall off the proverbial wagon. I need to get my head in a different place. A couple of days ago I felt like I was bouncing along behind the wagon, holding onto a rope attache... Read more

Decluttering my home

Tuesday, October 27, 2009      7 comments

Today is a rest day as far as exercise, so I made use of this time to recruit help from a friend to clean up my basement. We are having a kids halloween party on the weekend, and I want to use the basement for some of the games. Thus, the dis... Read more

My first 10K race

Monday, October 26, 2009      14 comments

I had so much fun yesterday! Saturday night, I got all of the clothes and gear ready for myself and my family, and headed to bed by 11:30 to get up by 7:30 on Sunday morning. The morning went very well, and we left the house and were on our wa... Read more

Resisting unhealthy urges

Wednesday, October 21, 2009      7 comments

I had a big overeat last night, knowing in my head that I would be strict today to counteract it. Then, I get up this morning, and devise a plan in my head to get McDonald's crap and donuts for breakfast. I then started to think about how the ... Read more

Bike ride instead of running

Tuesday, October 20, 2009      6 comments

Okay, so, Sunday was an unscheduled rest day, which meant I would have to make up the calorie burn another day. Today was that day! I went for a 2 hour bike ride. First time in a very long time I have been on my bike. I adjusted the seat, be... Read more

I had a terrific weekend. We attended a very nice small wedding ceremony on Saturday, a relative got married. I did the pics for them, and I was very pleased with how they turned out. Also, I really made wise choices at the dinner that evenin... Read more

Pickups, for anyone like me who didn't know what they are, means going @ 85-90% max. speed 50 - 100 metres (light post to light post as example) followed by same distance very slow jog. I have never done pickups before, so today was all new to ... Read more

Home organization and family time

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      5 comments

These are two things I need to start making more of a focus in my day. I have made new daily goals, one is to spend a minimum of 30 minutes on home organization on top of my required work like dishes and laundry. The second new goal is to spen... Read more

Two week boot camp failure

Monday, October 12, 2009      7 comments

Okay, so my plan for the last two weeks was to really work hard in my training, and eat spot on my calorie range for a big result in two weeks. HA! I should have learned by now that staying away from the scale always backfires, and instead of l... Read more

Back to tracking

Saturday, October 10, 2009      2 comments

Okay, so, since last Saturday I have been off of the tracking wagon, just trying to get used to what my body thinks of all this running. I have been PMSing big time too, so my eating has been HORRENDOUS, with all of the chocolate and sugar, and... Read more

Calorie deprivation on the weekend

Tuesday, October 06, 2009      4 comments

I think part of the reason I was so cold is because 1400 calories is not enough for my body when I am running 5 days a week. I need to tweak my range a bit, and maybe shoot for between 1550 and 1700 instead. I haven't tracked my food for a few... Read more
