Plug and chug
I have been off my game a little this last week. I got sick, took 2 extra days off work, and still wasn't 100% when I went back. So exercise has been virtually nonexistent but I still watched what I ate. A couple nights ago an amazing woman we... Read more
No story is great, or really even complete without conflict. Something has to challenge our hero, someone has to stand in the way, even if its an aspect of the hero's own personality. The first couple weeks of couch 2 5k, I walked and I jogged... Read more
I started week 2 of Couch 2 5k this week. I had been stalling because when I first started week one was SO HARD, but today's workout felt pretty good. Now that I am feeling in control of my food (tracking every day and doing well even when I a... Read more
Apparently I suck at finishing things. I start challenges, set goals for myself, and fall off the wagon. I seriously lack the ability to motivate myself across the finish line. I get part way to a goal, celebrate the steps I have made in the r... Read more
Wow, I stepped on the scale last week for an official weigh in (per my own personal always do official weigh ins first thing when I get up and before I eat anything) to get my "starting" weight to log, and I almost got my starting weight. Two H... Read more
I joined a Gym, and actually went to work out!
I have had "take a yoga class" on my goal list for years now, and I know I actually enjoyed the weight machines in high school gym class, but I have always let inertia, hesitation and schedule hold me back. I don't like locker rooms, I was alwa... Read more
CSA Week 1, and the complete derailing of my plans
Plans, I had so many plans for this year, and then the outage at work lasted 100 days. Some really good things happened in those 100 days though, I met a contractor, who also happens to be in the national guard, and more than willing to help me... Read more
2014 fitness goal
I am committing this year to not stay on the gain lose cycle, to finish this year with less pounds than I started the year. 2012 I made a lot of progress, hit a lot of goals, and then let myself go in my late season slump. 2013 I was very diso... Read more
September Bike challenge
This months challenge for Girls gone riding was to take a ride in a scenic place and post pictures. So I went to Kelleys Island in Lake erie with my roommate and two bikes. While we were biking around the island we encountered the tiny Kelleys... Read more
Some folks I am friends with thanks to teams may have noticed I left a few of my teams, because I wasn't active in them and the team's goals do not jive with my current goals. I am not running and only really walking as needed for my job and su... Read more
I did not lose any weight because I continued to struggle with my consistency (both exercise and eating).
I did get to spend quite a bit of time outside and continued that into May, so I am over halfway to my 25 miles walking... Read more
I have been only sporadically hitting the scale lately and it helped a lot. I was focused on doing right, and only checking my progress when I knew I had been staying with the plan. Except for today. This week I have let my eating slip, made ... Read more
My goals for April are
Stay on track with eating (at least 80% of time, knowing weekends can be my downfall)
Lose weight (one pound or 10 as long as there is a loss on the scale at the end of the month)
Walking and Biking Outside ... Read more
Spring already Spring!
I am so frustrated with this cold weather. We had a few lovely days here and there but then it gets freezing cold again, and currently the weather is calling for snow of freezing rain on Wednesday. I am ready for spring to spring already. I h... Read more
So far so good
The first week of 2013 has gone pretty well so far. I got myself a Fitbit as a christmas present and thanks to that all the walking I do at work has been counting toward my fitness minutes. This has made a few things clear to me, showing me th... Read more
