One year ago today, I joined Sparkpeople. I didn't really start to use the website fully until January of 2009, but golly, it has really been a big part of the 30ish pounds I have lost since last November. So, Happy Sparkiversary to me today!... Read more

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.

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

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

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
