Starting to see results
I put on a pair of jeans, and wore a t-shirt that i havn't worn in a long time. I felt good to be wearing them. Today I bought a new pair of shoes, sketchers with memory foam, and went for my 5 k -- 48:30 -- fastest yet!! And NO shin splints!... Read more
So after a week of workin my ass off, and following my JC menu, I had broke 2 goals (last friday). I was so excited as anyone could tell. Then I sunk, way down. Right from Saturday afternoon, to Friday. It was a mess. I knew what I was doin... Read more
Fridays are for Celebrating!
Yesterday was weigh day, both at home and at JC. After the disappointment last week i KNEW I was going to meet my first goal of 10 lb loss this week. What I didn't know was just how much came off! Not only did I lose my first 10 lb but I also... Read more
Not giving up!
Today was such a beautiful day I thought i would go out to walk. I changed my Nike app to Km instead of miles, hit start, and walked. My playlist was awesome and the walk was great! I didnt measure out the route first, I just walked and when ... Read more
Lost my streak,,,
Well, I almost made it a full month of logging in, or at least spinning the wheel. I think it was Sunday where I forgot cuz I apparently didnt log anything all day. I was actually looking forward to seeing a month long streak... a day short. ... Read more

What February is going to bring
February is going to be a great month! I have been eating better (thanks to Jenny Craig), I have been drinking my 6 cups of water a day (sometimes up to 8), I have been keeping regular with SP, and I have been working out. I lost almost 6 lbs ... Read more
Change of plans....
So after the fiasco of not being about to do 2 minutes of slow jog without massive shin splints, I have decided to change my plan a bit. No, I am not giving up, just post-poning the 5K. I'm going to continue to walk on my tread climber when it... Read more
Bummed and Aching
So today was 2 miles, alternating between walk n run 2 min each. At first I was thinking there was no way cuz i can barely do a 1 min run, but then i told myself that i'll start with 1 and work my way up. By the time I'm done I'll be at 2 minu... Read more
Week 1 Done!
I almost cant believe it did it! I finished the first 5K training week and am looking forward to week 2. The most challenging part is the running. I have no problems walking that far, as a matter of fact, i found some days i was WANTING to wa... Read more
Today's run/walk brings two "fastests" for me. It was my fastest mile so far AND my fastest 1 K for me. Today was the first time for 2 miles so I'm pretty proud of myself for those accomplishments today. (yes i know its my first K but Im still... Read more
So today is weigh day, not just for me personally, but also at Jenny Craig. 4.8 pounds down. That was this morning, this afternoon at JC it was only 2 pounds down. I guess the added weight of clothes and the food I ate made a 3 pound differen... Read more
Which is right?
So I'm adding my workout to my tracker and find myself very confused. The app I use on my phone for the 5k training says I burned so many calories. My SP Fitness Tracker says I burned another amount. My HRM says I burned almost twice as much as ... Read more
Today I learned.....
I really do want this!! I wasn't home right after work today and wasn't sure if i would go out, but i did. I didnt stop for anything or i wouldn't have gone. Today's 5K training was to alternate between walk and run (a minute each) for a mile... Read more
