Friday, November 20, 2009      3 comments

My goal for today was to be at 165 pounds. I weighed in at 163.2! Almost 2 pounds ahead. I am not going to get too excited though, because this is typical for me. I go gung-ho off the start of any new goal I set, and after a week or two, I f... Read more

I have had a great day today. I walked with my best friend for 1 hour this morning, did my 3K training run for 25 minutes right after that. Then, I came home, had a snack, realized it was lunch time, so ate lunch, then hopped on my stationary ... Read more
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

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

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

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

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
